In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

Hearthstone Getting Naxxramas Expansion
So, I'm going through Twitter this morning and some strange guy, who's apparently at this little thing called PAX East, tweeted something that made me nearly spit out my coffee.



Expansion for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft? But it's not even out for iPad yet, I screamed at my iPad while also making an angry face.



At this point it became far too weird, so I left Twitter and went to investigate on my own. Guess what I found? Strange guy was right! Blizzard Entertainment had announced the expansion themselves earlier this morning.

No idea when the expansion will release (this is Blizzard, after all), but we have a pretty good insight of what to expect. 30 new cards and a single-player campaign through the dungeon of Naxxramas in which you will gain new cards and fight some of the bosses from World of Warcraft. The expansion will be rolled out over 5 weeks with a new wing of the dungeon opening each week. The first wing (The Arachnid Quarter, so called for its expansive monkey population, I'm sure) will be free, and each subsequent wing will require a purchase using either in-game gold or out-of-game cash.

There's more: class challenges which will allow you to earn more class-specific cards, new play areas, and new things to click on in the corners. Yes, I'm actually excited about that as well.

Hearthstone should be out for iPad in the next week or two and we'll definitely let you know when it goes live. For those of you in Canada, Australia or New Zealand, however, you should already be playing this.



Sentinels Sidekick Updates Android
I think I've already mentioned how invaluable Sentinels Sidekick is if you're going to be playing Sentinel Comics. If not, let me say that it's invaluable.

Back in February, the guys at Handelabra released Sidekick for Android although it was based on an older build of the iOS version. Thus, it didn't have the art and other functions that the iOS users had.

Well, it still doesn't have the art, but they have added some new features: You can now randomize heroes, villains, environments and target cards. They also made it compatible for Android version 2.3 or later as well as Kindle Fire (except 1st gen).

Because PAX is going on, they've also cut the price tag. Sidekick for iOS is now $3 (instead of $5), and for Android it's $2.49 instead of $3.49. You can pick it up for iOS here or for Android here. It's still in review over at Amazon, so I don't have a link yet for the Amazon App Store. The sale is good through this Monday, April 14.
