Entries for 'chatters'

Site has been moved over to the new host, I still have some tweaking to do. The forums seemed to not want to follow over perfectly so I'll be addressing those.


All accounts should still exist as everything has seemed to go much smoother :). We also have a much larger space/transfer rate now. 300gb of bandwith. and 13gb of space.


*edit: Forums are backup and running.

t's official. You won't be playing StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty this year, as Blizzard has moved the release date of the real-time strategy game to the "first half of 2010." No, they never dated it; but they have now.

Activision Blizzard's reason for the delay of StarCraft II is reportedly tied to the relaunch of its upgraded Battle.net service, which handles multiplayer for all things Blizzard. In a statement to the Blizzard community, the developer writes "Over the past couple of weeks, it has become clear that it will take longer than expected to prepare the new Battle.net for the launch of the game."

Blizzard calls the new Battle.net an "integral part of the StarCraft II experience and will be an essential part of all of our games moving forward." Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said during an investor call today that the new iteration of Battle.net will likely be ready "early next year."


(GotFrag) - Blizzard has released more in-game footage of its highly anticipated sequel to its mega-hit game & subsequent expansion, StarCraft & StarCraft: BroodWar. The video is a match between Matt Cooper (playing Zerg) and David Kim (playing Terran), and is narrated by Blizzard's Lead Developer Dustin Browder and Blizzard eSports Team Member Robert Simpson. The match is the first close up look at the Zerg forces in action, as the first Battle Report was staged between a Terran and a Protoss player. The video also features a number of new additions to StarCraft 2's constantly-evolving gameplay, including some particularly effective new Terran tactics that end up being quite pivotal in the match. Enjoy! (direct link) ...

So the UK may be getting a pretty sweet deal with an 80GB "Blu-ray entertainment" PS3 pack for 300 quid, but for us Americans, we've got something even sweeter ... potentially! Why potentially? Because some of you out there will get the deal, while others will not. This is how it works: Amazon is offering three different discounted packages to its members; however, they will have to vote for only one of these as the one they want.

Casting a vote enters you in a chance to buy the items at the discounted price, BUT only if the majority votes in favor of your bundled set. If your choice wins, then you have a chance to be one of the lucky 500 who can snag a PS3 at that amazingly low price. Seriously, a full functioning PS3 with built-in Wi-Fi and an HDD (plus extras) for the price of the stripped down Xbox 360 Arcade? It's a good value and worth trying if you don't already have a PS3. The voter's bundle winner will go on sale by Friday, Nov. 28. So, just what are the choices? The image above shows it all, though we've written everything down after the break. And, of course, hit Amazon to vote!

Infogrames subsidiary confirms that it has acquired the rights to publish dumped Vivendi project; release set for 2009.



Sure, Spore's DRM sucked. Yes, many people were left disappointed with the game after expecting way too much from it. But did you know that you can apparently recreate StarCraft factions using the game's editor? A Korean StarCraft fan (I know, I know) on the website Ruliweb has shared some of his (or her) Terran creations in Will Wright's opus.

Going by the Google translated username Krabby Patty (even though the Korean translates closer to something like Crab Burger, Krabby Patty is just too cool to not use) , the user shared several screenshots of a Terran base and vehicles. While there are no Zerg or Protoss Spore creations yet, we can now only hold our breath and wait until the next genius Korean StarCraft fan gets his (or her) hands on Spore. Finally StarCraft players will be able to take their Zerg rushes to a galactic scale...

It's been a while since we've heard about PlayStation Home. This new video goes through all the things you can do in the online community. For example, you can play a game of chess with an online stranger. You can customize your character, your apartment. You can walk through Game Spaces for various titles, like Warhawk.
