Do feel free to add my youtube channel to the "others" section. It is purely HEX videos and people do seem to be enjoying it.


Shameless self-plugging - disengage!

PS: Great list so far, keep it up! :)

great work

I'd missed that gamesradar preview, so good to have the link here.

05-25-2013, 12:07 AM
Good job. It probably deserves to be stickied for now. Anything that lets new peeps find information more easily at this point should be encouraged :)

Actually, calling on Wiki creators and others: Isn't it time to start thinking about creating a list of acronyms and abbreviations?

Updated with your Link WallofOmens. Thanks for your efforts.

If the typical internet community is at work, those will pop up like mushrooms all by themselves in no time anyways ^^

Excellent post! You might want to add the IGN and Gamesradar streams that went up recently - you can find them here (http://uk.ign.com/videos/2013/05/24/hex-mmo-trading-card-game-developer-demo) and here (http://www.gamesradar.com/hex-shards-fate-developer-demo/) respectively, and they both contain quite a lot of gameplay footage.

Edit: never mind, looks like they're under demos already! :p

05-26-2013, 09:43 PM
Nice links, makes it easy to find everything.

Missing some blogs that can be found in: http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=23453&highlight=blog

I do like CoolAJ's Blog: http://coolgraycorner.com/

If you're hoping to sticky this, I suggest adding some color and bullet points for organization. Have a uniform system with a "-" and small description too. Could also prove handy to embed the link like this (click me) (http://hextcg.com/).

05-28-2013, 11:00 AM
Thanks for linking that thread. I agree there are a lot of cool blog sites forming, and I anticipate there will be hundreds eventually. That would quickly get out of control to keep updated in a thread like this. My idea was mainly to have a central post to find direct info from the devs in videos, audio, or print interviews they have put out there, and then did include some resource sites such as the Wikis and databases.

CoolAJ's blog is stellar, and it will be one I check often I bet. However, if I tried to put every blog site on the first page of the thread, 1. I couldn't keep up with it, and 2. I don't want to create drama by putting one blog up but not another.

I may play with the formatting a bit sometime to make sure it's clear what people are accessing through the links.

06-02-2013, 11:55 AM
Our site, hextcgpro.com, is nearly done. Can add it to the list of links when it's kosher.

06-04-2013, 10:40 AM
You can add hexrealms.com to the list. Our first article is live.

List looks Good. I hope to Stream Hex once Alpha and Beta Launch.. assuming there is not an NDA.

06-04-2013, 04:54 PM
There are going to be so many great blogs, dedicated player and group Hex channels, that I would never be able to keep up with them all. I am still going to track videos, blogs, demos and interviews where the developers are directly interviewed, and dedicate the first post of this sticky to those items, and not track the Player created channels.... so as not to show any perceived favoritism.

Listing your channels in responses to this thread however I think is a great idea, and still gets it viewed in a stickied post.

Why do we have two separate link stickies?

06-19-2013, 06:21 PM
The other is mostly for fan blogs, youtubes. This is more for dev videos, commentaries and tools. sorry, couldn't keep up with all the fansites, so handed that job off to someone else who could :)

06-19-2013, 10:11 PM
Talking of other sites, has any site that dedicates itself to guilds for MMO's committed to Hex? Haven't seen Hex listed on any of the big guild sites.

There aren't that many posts (five pages total between the two threads) and most of them don't even have links that you need to manage. Can we seriously not combine them?

The Booster Draft Simulator has moved to http://www.hexdraft.com

Also working on:
