StarCraft II: Wings Of Liberty

StarCraft II: Starter Edition replaces official demo

1:00 AM on 08.04.2011 // David Rayfield

Blizzard Entertainment announced today they have retired their demo of StarCraft II: Wings Of Liberty and replaced it with the Starter Edition. Players will get access to the first four missions of StarCraft II up to the point you either hit Tychus's first mission or Dr. Hansen's first mission. There will also be two challenges (Tactical Command, Covert Ops) and access to four custom maps (Xel'Naga Caverns, Shattered Temple, Discord IV, High Orbit.)

However unlike the original demo, StarCraft II: Starter Edition will require a account and an Internet connection. Any progress and achievements through the first four campaign missions in the Starter Edition carries over to the full game should you wish to upgrade.

All the details are on the official Blizzard website if you are still thinking about trying the game. Apparently people like you still exist.

Alright so I'm looking for a few games for my newly repurchased DS. I'm already set on RPG as it's all I have pretty much. Were there any good puzzle games? I've heard good things about Professor Layton.

After hearing Persona 4 Dancing All Night come out of my surround sound system; I can safely say my $20 Playstation TV purchase was totally justified. The bass on Best Friends (Banvox Remox) literally shook the floor. It's freaking awesome!

Was on the front page and was greeted by a new post, which I clicked to find "You cannot see the future". Then refreshed and it was gone. I saw Chris's post on Eight Days' cancellation as it was brought, new and unready, into the world! Rare and wonderful

Community Question: Have you ever purchased a game only to regret it later and then sell it/give it away, only to even later regret selling it and wind up purchasing it again?

A decadent staircase adorned in gold rises into infinite darkness. Writhing beings beyond comprehension lurk in the shadows, their mere presence encroaching on the edges of human understanding. A blood moon glows . I am losing my mind. I need more eyes...

If there are rainbows in Xenoblade Chronicles X, Reyn must be in it as well. You can't have a rainbow without Reyn, baby!

I really hope Xenoblade become it's own franchise, it has way too much potential to simply being reduced to 2 games.

Super Smash Bros. 4 has too much content. So much so I almost don't want a sequel. I honestly hope that NX gets a "Super Smash Bros. For NX" port rather than a new installment. It could be a GOTY edition and come with all of the DLC.
