  3. Watch the Ender’s Game StarCraft II Tournament Live

    Remember, the enemy's Command Center gate is down.

    The simulations in Ender's Game are pretty much a giant, virtual reality version of StarCraft, and it turns out the studio sees that as the perfect excuse to market the movie's DVD release with a live streaming StarCraft II tournament. The first round is today at 7:00PM PST, and it will run on Twitch.tv Feb. 5th - 9th.

  4. All Hail The Queen: Kerrigan Returns With A Vengeance In StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

    Review

    (Minor spoilers ahead.) Sarah Kerrigan sits in a high-security research lab, obediently following Prince Valerian’s instructions. To assess how much of the Zerg mutagen is left in her system, he asks her to psionically control a drone in a chamber nearby. This is, of course, the tutorial mission, but there’s more going on here than a lesson in unit control. Kerrigan does as she’s told, but her tone is dangerously apathetic. “You know this is going to end badly, right?” she says. There’s a hint of laughter in her words, condescending and bored. Valerian is not the one in control here. When will these people ever learn that underestimating Kerrigan is a very stupid idea?

  5. StarCraft II: Flashpoint Sets The Stage For Sarah Kerrigan’s Comeback Tour

    Review

    There are few video game characters from my formative years that I regard as highly as Kerrigan. She was complex and unforgettable, the sort of villain who makes you forget that you’re supposed to root for the good guys. To this day, I can’t help but feel awe when remembering the emergence of the Queen of Blades. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, on the other hand, left me unimpressed. Naturally, the Zerg were going to get stomped, but to see that brilliant character stripped of her power, both literally and figuratively, then carried off into the sunset by her former boyfriend — come on. Kerrigan deserves better than that. The trailers for SCII’s upcoming expansion, Heart of the Swarm, seem to agree, pointing toward a vengeful reclamation of the leaderless broods. While the expansion's release is still a few weeks out, tie-in novel StarCraft II: Flashpoint, written by Christie Golden, raises some interesting questions about how Kerrigan’s next chapter will unfold (minor spoilers ahead).

  6. 8 Games To Watch Out For In 2013

    The Future Is Now!

    2012 has been a great year for games. AAA titles are huge and spectacular, indies are fearlessly exploring new territory, and the cultural conversation about this ever evolving medium gets livelier by the day. For all the growing pains both the industry and players are working through, this is a truly exciting time for anyone who loves games. Even though I’m still playing catch-up with my backlog, 2013 will soon be here, and with it, a whole new batch of worlds to discover, puzzles to solve, and battles to fight. Without further ado, here are a handful of upcoming games that have my attention.

  7. Gamers’ Lawsuit Goes After Blizzard Over Battle.Net Authenticator System

    In the wake of a series of invasive hacks earlier this year, Battle.Net users are taking their anger and frustration out on Blizzard with a new class action lawsuit. While lawsuits are par for the course when it comes to potentially leaking users' credit card information, it seems that WoW and Diablo III fans are enraged over a different aspect of the scandal. Rather than focusing on the allegedly lackluster security of Battle.Net, users are suing over the fact that Blizzard tried to take advantage of the event by strongly recommending that insecure users buy the Battle.Net authenticator, a little keychain dongle that generates random passwords for players' accounts.

  8. Professional Starcraft II Player Suspended for Child Sex Comments

    We have to face facts, people. The internet is a social place: Even if there's no one else in the room with you, people will see the things you say online and you are accountable them. For example, if you don't want people to think you're a sex offender, don't talk about having sex with children. A player from professional Starcraft II squad Evil Geniuses is learning that lesson the hard way. Ilyes Satouri, A.K.A. Stefano, has been suspended by his team after saying he molested a fourteen year-old boy during a publicly streamed in-game conversation.
