KitGuru Says: It’s been a while since I played Hearthstone. I’ve been distracted by a Xenonauts campaign and lately the all consuming Rocket League. Perhaps I’ll pick it up again once this expansion hits however.

One of the biggest selling points of the Xbox 360 and PS3 was the fact that these systems were capable of outputting games in HD. Yet, as consoles support higher and higher resolutions, we have seen developers focus less on offering games at such resolutions, instead using new rendering techniques to create what may be the start of the post-resolution gaming experience...
