MSI Canada and London Drugs are joining forces again to bring you the third MSI Canada Dragon Cup Hearthstone Tournament!
Based on Blizzard Entertainment’s world famous multimedia franchise Warcraft, Hearthstone is a fast paced card game where you pit your heroes against your opponents in battle. It’s deceptively simple, which makes it an easy game to play but a difficult game to master.
This year the tournament will be held over two days, with the early rounds taking place on Saturday April 9th and the quarter finals, semi finals, and finals on Sunday April 10th.
The winner of the competition will see $500 cash and an MSI GTX 960 2G graphics card. Additionally, the winner will qualify to compete in the Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo Hearthstone Tournament in Toronto at the end of April, a chance to compete for a share of the $10,000 prize pool!
Wait, there’s more! London Drugs will be supplying the top three Canadian players in MSI Dragon Cup V3 with $500, $300, and $200 respectively to spend at LondonDrugs.com!
The tournament will once again be streamed online by Twitch user coL_noxios, be sure to tune in to his stream as plenty of swag and prizes will be given away to viewers in Canada and the US! You can also follow along on social media with the hashtag #MSIDragonCup3.

First of all, if you’re not aware, there is a whole culture of gaming where kids can travel around the world and compete against each other, playing video games live (as in real bodies inhabiting the same physical space, not online) for prizes as high as $50,000! Example: Something called the MLG Pro Circuit Providence Starcraft II Championship (Nov 2011.) Let yourself get sucked into that world by clicking here.
ANYWAY not only is this a whole culture I was not fully aware of, there’s also a network of people that will record the games and COMMENTATE them, posting these play-by-plays on their YouTube channels or blogs. AND…gaming companies will pay to advertise on their blogs or websites.
Let me recap—kids will watch other kids play Starcraft, record the game with their own voice-over play-by-play, post it, and still OTHER kids will watch it, likely with their friends. Astounding.
|Check out the 7k+ views, and the fact that this is game #437!|
As a mom I’m starting to regret not pushing harder to buy that first PlayStation when my kids were 3, and getting them into a gaming bootcamp.
Anyway, the Hauppauge HD PVR is a great recorder that will let you record your game play or programs from your satellite or cable box. The sweetness is that Hauppauge bills this as “the world’s first high definition video recorder for making real-time H.264 compressed recordings at resolutions up to 1080i.” It can also automatically change TV channels for scheduled recordings.
It uses AVCHD, which can burn content to Blu-ray compatible DVD disks.

I would have bought this for the special man in my life, however it’s only compatible with a Windows PC, and he is a Mac dude.
Would someone in your life love to record their next Left 4 Dead zombie killing spree?
