Hearthstone is fathoms deep, and it gets enough attention that Touch Arcade has begun posting weekly news roundups just about this one game. From this week’s edition:
I still get surprised at the volume of Hearthstone[Free] news on the web every week. When I started this column, I was (very slightly) worried about having a week where nothing interesting happened and having to think of silly news to include just to make the column worth reading that week. Fortunately, I have the opposite problem as there’s so much out there that I have to pick and choose so I don’t overwhelm you. This week we have some interesting tip-related stories about playing Patron Warrior well and hitting Legend Rank, we have more proof of Hearthstone‘s increasing popularity, Tavern Brawl continues to entertain, and more. I even have a new section, Question of the Week. Well, shall we?
Amazon doesn’t rest on its laurels. In addition to delivering diapers promptly to my doorstep, it also makes mobile games. And 148Apps thinks its Tales from Deep Space is pretty good. From the 4 out of 5 star review:
At times, Tales From Deep Space can feel a little more clunky than it should, and it’s a little slow building, but it’s a mostly fun and thoughtful puzzle game. While experienced gamers will have played something similar, they should still be pretty happy to give it another shot. Tales From Deep Space has a lot of charm going for it.

The excellent, brutal spacefaring roguelike-ish game Out There just got a big update that you’re gonna want to check out. From Touch Arcade:
In July of last year we learned that Mi Clos Studios’ excellent (and punishing!) roguelike/gamebook/strategy/space adventure Out There [$3.99] would be getting a huge expansion dubbed the Omega Edition which revamped much of the artwork and added lots of new features to the game. Us mobile gamers had to watch in anguish as our desktop gaming counterparts received the Omega Edition of Out Thereback in April. However, that anguish ends today as just moments ago the iOS version has received theOmega Edition update as well.
Somehow, for better or for worse, Telltale is going to bring their full adventure game development powers to the world of Minecraft. That’s about all we know so far, but that may change this weekend. From Touch Arcade:

We don’t quite know what to expect from this, but with Minecon this weekend in London, Telltale is teasing that we’ll be hearing something this weekend at Minecon.
