Blizzard Making Their Own Starcraft 2 Mods

Game Informer have been chatting to Dustin Browder, lead bossman on StarCraft 2, and at the end of the interview, when asked about the other installments of the game, he said this: "We've got some mods we've developed internally that we're going to put out to get some more art into the hands of the mod makers but also provide what we hope are some…

StarCraft 2: Beating The Rush

I’ve figured out why I’m playing StarCraft 2 online. It’s for the rush. Not the Abrupt-Wave-Of-Units kind of rush. What I mean is that a match of StarCraft 2 will have my heart performing drum solos, and it’ll pluck my taut nerves like violin strings. The game’s been designed for this. What’s forgotten in the talk of how StarCraft pros perform 300 actions per minute…

Blizz-o-News!

A whole bunch of news has emerged from the nameless tendrils of the Acti-Blizz games leviathan, as the company makes its public financials call. The biggest of these regards World Of Warcraft, which has basically stopped growing. No! But yes! Because it's the same as it was back in 2008. Arguably this has something to do with all the trouble the game has had in…

Custom Incredulity: Starcraft II’s Map Cleverness

So Blizzard's Starcraft: Ghost action game might not have seen the light of day, but it seems you're going to be able to build your own third-person shooter within Starcraft II anyway. What?

Building a third-person shooter inside the RTS editing suite is going to be a possibility, as Blizzard demonstrated with their…

Starcraft 2 Is Now A Trilogy, Footage

Another transmission from Shacknews at Blizzcon reveals that the three races of Starcraft 2 are going to get a game each, with each game effectively being a Starcraft 2 expandalone. That's right: the three-campaign game we were expecting is now three distinct games. Each campaign will be very different, with [Blizzard bossman] Pardo announcing the Zerg campaign will contain RPG elements. The Protoss campaign will…

Searching For The Young Strategy Rebels

Presumably because I'm still heavily damaged by a weekend of hard boozing and harder dancing in the company of those elements of RPS who enjoy fun, the loose connection between my brain and my typing fingers has dribbled out some stream of conciousness about RTS. That strategy is on my/RPS' radar so much at the moment is probably an inevitable result of an Autumn and…

Polish Journalist Versus Relic Bloodbath

I exaggerate only slightly. Since Soulstorm is out and it looks like Dawn of War 2's announcement may be imminent, I thought it time to transcribe a passably memorable event that I had on tape. It occurred when Alec and I toddled over to visit Relic when they first debuted Soulstorm. To be precise, when Executive Producer Jonathan Dowdeswell stopped the video, and asked if…
