Blizzard is throwing Heart of the Swarm in with Legacy of the Void

If you're looking to get back into StarCraft II on a whim, there's a decent promotion running right now. Folks who purchase the Legacy of the Void expansion (it's $39.99 regularly, and $59.99 for the deluxe edition) will get the earlier rel...

Blizzard jokingly reveals 'birds' as the fourth Starcraft II race

Birds, man. They ruin everything! Not according to Blizzard though. They love birds so much that they're willing to put them in Starcraft II as the fourth race to compete against the Terran, Protoss, and Zerg. They even created some an...

 
StarCraft II review
Blizzard's triple-release strategy for StarCraft II really paid off. While it seemed like a complete scam at first, the studio went all out and supported the game throughout its lifetime, and if we're lucky, for the next decade or so. Every expansion added something new and now, we have StarCraft II: Nova Covert Ops, a bite-sized DLC of sorts that takes place over multiple chapters.   read

StarCraft II review
When I last left StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, I had completed most of the story. Having now played it all, I've walked away satisfied, not only from this expansion, but from the series as a whole. Decades after its inception, Blizzard is still at the top of its class in terms of cinematic storytelling, and the new game modes don't hurt the appeal of the overall package in the slightest.   read

StarCraft II review
Although I had played countless RTS games before it (Command & Conquer, rest in peace), StarCraft grabbed me like no other in 1998. Part of it was because a large group of my friends, even those who had no prior affinity ...   read
