Some of My Favourite Watcher Cards in Slay the Spire

Even after devoting dozens of hours into Slay the Spire, learning The Watcher threw me for a loop. What makes her unique is the abilities she gains when changing stances. However, if you mismanage her stances, you can die in a blink.

Despite the complexity of the character, she’s the only one I’ve beaten the game with before hitting level 5. Is it because she’s that good? Or is it because I’ve just improved overall? Or did I just happen to get really lucky during one run? Whatever the case, here are some of my favourite cards in her arsenal!

The Rising Costs of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X Games

Earlier this year, 2K Games revealed its next generation pricing for the NBA 2K21 series. While the current gen equivalents retain the standard $60 USD price point, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X equivalents are listed at $69.99. More recently, Activision revealed that they were doing the same for their next gen iterations of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

Though 2K and Activision might be outliers in this practice, my spider sense is telling me that this $10 increase will be the standard going forward. As a consumer, I hate it. As a Canadian consumer, this is a double-whammy that might price me out of AAA gaming going forward.

Some of My Favourite Defect Cards in Slay the Spire

The Defect is far from defective when it comes to battling in Slay the Spire. When pushed to the limit, this AI can be equal parts bulldozer and fortress. Reaching that limit by managing its unique orb mechanic is the true challenge.

Now that I’ve conquered the tower with The Defect, take a peek at some of my fave cards in its deck!

Some of My Favourite Silent Cards in Slay the Spire

After completing Slay the Spire with The Ironclad, I turned my attention to The Silent. While The Silent is capable of melting her foes, it’s going to take more setup on the player’s part to create those devastating combinations. Though I’ve gotten to the final battle a few times, the climb to the top has been much tougher for me with The Silent than The Ironclad.

Now that I’ve finally climbed to the top with The Silent, thought I’d share some of my favourite cards from her deck!

What’s With All of the Streaming-Related Posts of Late?

In Third Person started with video games as its primary subject matter. However, it’s taken many subject matter detours over the years as my interests have evolved. There was a stretch of time where I wrote a lot about comic books. Board games were huge on the site for a while. I discovered over the years that it was more important for me to use this space to write about my interests – whatever they are – versus trying to box myself in. I’m not trying to make the next Kotaku, Gamespot, or IGN (though they all stray from gaming at times as well). For the sake of my happiness, I’d rather have the site evolve with me.

Most recently, streaming content has consumed the site to the point where it’s a daily conversation point. In case you haven’t been following my recent antics on Twitch, here’s the lowdown on why it’s having such a dramatic impact on my writing output.

Some of My Favourite Ironclad Cards in Slay the Spire

Each character in Slay the Spire is controlled with a deck of cards that constitutes their attacks, defensive maneuvers, and other status effects. Though you unlock most of the cast in quick succession, I decided to focus my efforts on beating the game with the game’s starting character: The Ironclad.

Having finally climbed to the top with this masked swordsman, here are some of my favourite cards to use when playing as The Ironclad!
