There are online collectible card games, of course. Magic: The Gathering, the granddaddy of all modern CCGs, has a digitized version that plays exactly like the physical game, only it's online. BattleForge, from EA and its EA Phenomic studio, from Germany, looks to put a twist on online CCGs. This game features the card collecting and deck building of CCGs, but blends a real-time strategy mechanic of you being able to control fantastic creatures and powerful spells on a battlefield. EA introduced BattleForge earlier this year, and as the game approached its closed beta IGN recently got another look at it.
