"I admit it. I have a long and obsessive history with Magic. When I played in the Pokémon TCG league, I was introduced to Magic circa Mercadian Masques, and I immediately set out to obtain more cards from there. I couldn't get enough. One thing lead to another, and I found myself with the original PC translation and later on Magic the Gathering: Battleground. Because there was quite a dearth of regular players here under the age of 30 that my parents would comfortably let me associate with, I found myself turning to the software more often than the physical cards. Unfortunately, the games were quite riddled with bugs. In the middle of a heated match where I was about to tap some serious mana, the game would close unexpectedly. Not cool. Luckily, Wizards of the Coast saw fit to bring Magic: The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers to the XBLA. Game stability, matches with other human beings, and achievements, here I come!"
