  • Don’t Have A Starcraft II Beta Key? Pre-order At Gamestop And Get One

    I guess I will be doing this since Awesome Radical Gaming, a massive powerhouse with it’s 10 (max) readers and completely random updates, isn’t good enough to get one through Blizzard. You can reserve online and wait 24 hours for the code through email, or go into a store and get the code immediately. The […]

  • Blizzard Official Begins Starcraft 2 Closed Beta

    After what feels like years of waiting, Blizzard is starting the Starcraft 2 closed beta. I beta that I won’t be getting a key for because Bob at Blizzard’s PR department noticed I’ve only updated the site like 3 times since last year. He was harsh, harsh but fair. I’ve been slacking, but no more. […]

  • Starcraft II Map Editor Can Do RPGs, FPSes

    Starcraft’s map editor allowed users to create their own maps and just generally do a lot of cool things with the game (this mostly resulted in the creation of about a million different Starship Trooper maps).

  • Starcraft II Campaign Videos

    So, I totally want to play this game. Kotaku also has a nice write-up of the first seven single player missions (it has spoilers).

  • Starcraft II Delayed Until 2010

    Today Blizzard officially announced that Starcraft II will be delayed until sometime in 2010, citing the development of the newly improved Battle.net as the major reason why we won’t be seeing the game in 2009. I think everyone kind of, sort of, knew that Starcraft II was going to be delayed, it’s Blizzard after all, […]

  • Sam Raimi To Direct Warcraft Movie

    Yes, I knew there was going to be a Warcraft movie. What I didn’t know? Sam Raimi is going to be directing it. No word on when to expect the movie, or really any other major details (though there is some more information about the movie here). I have some concerns, mostly revolving around the […]
