  • 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 2 – Open Beta May Be Coming

    Blizzard’s Korean community manager Kicho has hinted of a possible open beta, saying that the StarCraft II beta will be available for “all fans of the franchise”, not just press and VIPs. We know that all of you are very curious about the development of the Beta with the release of many Starcraft 2 Beta […]

  • 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). Well, Starcraft II’s editor is going to be even cooler. At BlizzCon’s StarCraft II gameplay panel, they showed off […]

  • 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, […]

  • 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…

  • Starcraft II Producer Video

    Watch a Starcraft II video featuring producer Chris Sigaty. I wonder if my hair would look that good if it was long.

  • Starcraft 2 Zerg Video / Fact Sheet

    I always loved playing as the Zerg, something about beating an opponent by swarming them with tons of units was always fun. I can’t wait to hear “Spawn more overlords” over and over again…Starcraft was super awesome. Also, everytime I see a trailer for Starcraft 2 it looks better and better, I’m giving this game […]

  • Vivendi Games and Activision Merge

    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. The new name for the company will be Activision Blizzard, which is a pretty unoriginal name if you ask me. […]

  • 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 […]
