In Magic: The Gathering, the best blue players are manipulative and never show their hand. At PC Gamer, we're also manipulative, and if you won't show us your hand, we'll cut it off and post it on our website. Which is what we did with this exclusive Magic: The Gathering - Tactics video featuring some of the blue team's finest, such as Jace Beleren and a djinn with the kind of ponytail that makes real ponies reevaluate their existence as smaller and less useful horses. Poor ponies.
Don't front: there's a good chance you've played Magic: The Gathering, be it in middle school or yesterday afternoon. And everyone who's ever pivoted a Magic card on their index finger and whispered "You take three damage, coward," has to wonder: how cool would it be if these creatures came to life and decked it out? Okay, well, at least I've wondered that before. Today, Sony Online Entertainment's strategy game Magic: the Gathering - Tactics shows off its five iconic Planeswalkers, masters of their respective elements, in a vlog by SOE. "...Vlog?" We're using that as a word, now? It sounds like a more painful "flog."
If you've ever played the Magic: The Gathering customizable card game, you've no doubt wondered what it would look like if the creatures you cast duked it out on the table in front of you. SOE's free-to-play Magic: The Gathering - Tactics, a turn-based strategy game based on the CCG universe, renders your summoned creatures in 3D, fighting in formation on a tactical grid. We got the chance to talk about the game with Mark Tuttle, executive producer at SOE Denver, about the launch.

Everything comes to an end, they say: businesses, relationships, life, and, of course, videogames. Sony Online Entertainment's online game based on Magic: the Gathering is the latest to go down, as SOE will shut down Magic: the Gathering - Tactics early next year.
Numerous Sony Online Entertainment studios are closing according to George Broussard's twitter feed. The developer has been tweeting about the state of the company today. As reported on NeoGaf Broussard originally tweeted: "Word that Sony Online Entertainment Seattle is having layoffs and that studio closure is possible. http://bit.ly/eSxtvq." He later confirmed the rumour, saying "SOE Seattle and other studios (Denver is rumored) will be closed tomorrow. Good luck to all impacted." SOE Seattle were developing the ambitious upcoming shooter, The Agency for PC and PS3. They were also the team behind Magic The Gathering: Tactics. We've also heard rumours that half of the staff at SOE Austin have also been sacked. They're responsible for DC Universe Online. George Broussard was one of the original creators of the Duke Nukem series.
Monday. Another day, another mountain of news we couldn’t quite get round to. We’ve worked out backs off today, but its just not enough for you, is it? Well, you drinkers of all things PC gaming news, you’d better join us after the jump for the roundup of today’s other news. Three. Two. One. (Make your own hyperspace sound effects) Super Street Fighter IV may still be headed for PC. Or it might not. Equivocation is amusing. Or sometimes it's not. Saying something is hard. But saying PRECISELY NOTHING AT ALL is even harder.
DC Universe Online and Everquest players will be pleased to know that all of Sony Online Entertainment's MMOs are back online after the recent hacking incident, which saw thousands of users' credit card details stolen.

Two new Duke Nukem trailers hit the web this week. One covers the history of one of PC gaming's most recognisable characters, but it's the above video that had me scratching my chin the most. Duke Nukem Forever is actually going to get released, which is great, but I cant help but feel that Gearbox are pushing just a little too hard. The above trailer is amusing, but I can't shake the awkward feeling of misogyny that seems to ooze from it. Is pixelated pornography a step too far, or is it just harmless fun? Debate in the comments.
