Starcraft II’s Tech Trees

I think I want to play as Terran, no other unit looks as radical as Thor. And now I know exactly what buildings I need to create them…6 months ahead of time. The Terran and Zerg trees are below…

Diablo III Announced

I know this news is like a week late, but it’s too important not to post something. Blizzard finally announced Diablo III last week at their 2008 Worldwide Invitational in Paris. Sure, it only took, what eight years, but that doesn’t matter. In fact, I kind of like the fact that Blizzard didn’t just pump… Continue reading Diablo III Announced

BlizzCon 2008

Blizzard announced their annual BlizzCon gaming convention today. Tickets are $100 each, I think I would totally do it if it wasn’t in California. No video game related cool stuff happens on the east coast for some reason. Which is total crap. The whole press release is below…

Blizzard Acquires Diablo3.com

Blizzard recently acquired the Diablo fansite diablo3.com, now the natural question is “Will Diablo 3 will be coming out anytime soon?” Maybe, but I doubt it, it’s Blizzard we’re talking about here…Starcraft 2 has been in the works for 10 years now…but at least this is a step in the right direction. Diablo 2 is… Continue reading Blizzard Acquires Diablo3.com

Starcraft 2 Zerg Video / Fact Sheet

Also, everytime I see a trailer for Starcraft 2 it looks better and better, I’m giving this game… Continue reading Starcraft 2 Zerg Video / Fact Sheet

Blizzard “Announces” New MMO

In a recent forum post a Blizzard community representative (Drysc) “confirmed” a new MMO from Blizzard. No, it is an unannounced Next-Gen MMO. And that doesn’t mean an expansion for World of Warcraft either. I’m not sure it’s really an announcement when a community representative mentions it on a web board, but it’s still something.… Continue reading Blizzard “Announces” New MMO

Sunday Activision and Vivendi Games announced a merger between their two companies. Vivendi will be the majority share holder, purchasing $1.7 billion in Activision stocks. The whole deal will be worth roughly $18.9 billion dollars.

Starcraft II: The Story So Far

Blizzard has a nice right up over at starcraft2.com detailing the Starcraft storyline leading up to Starcraft II, which takes place four years after the events of Starcraft: Brood War. I never really paid a lot of attention to the story, so this little write-up is a great refresher. I think I just have a… Continue reading Starcraft II: The Story So Far
