  • South Korean presidential candidate campaigns with a StarCraft map

    Moon Jae-in, viewed by many as the favorite in South Korea's upcoming special election for president, has an interesting piece of campaign propaganda: A StarCraft map. That's a map for StarCraft: Brood War — the 1998 expansion for StarCraft that just went free (along with the main game). If you can't tell what's going on in this time-lapse video, Moon is spelling out his name with mineral deposits. StarCraft, as is very well known, is something of a national pastime for South Korea, so the appeal Moon is making here is pretty apparent — like a U.S. president filling out...
  • The original StarCraft and its beloved Brood War expansion are now free

    A few weeks ago Blizzard announced the upcoming summertime release of StarCraft: Remastered, giving a facelift to the classic RTS and its beloved Brood War expansion. Alongside that announcement came other interesting news though: The original (not remastered) versions of both StarCraft and Brood War would be made free sometime in April, alongside a new 1.18 patch. That time has come. Blizzard dropped the 1.18 patch late on Tuesday, adding in a borderless windowed mode, tweaking some back-end code, correcting some long-standing bugs, improving compatibility with Windows 10, and more. But more importantly, whether you never purchased the game or...
  • Blizzard is remaking 'StarCraft' with better graphics — and it's making the original version free

    People still play the original StarCraft, a real-time strategy game that first came out in 1998. Now, the intergalactic war game is getting a major face-lift, the game's developer, Blizzard, announced Sunday."StarCraft: Remastered" will preserve the gameplay of the original 1998 title, but the new title will update its aging graphics and audio and will ensure better compatibility with modern computers, the company said. "Gameplay and balance have been precisely preserved," Blizzard said in a statement. Preserving the gameplay is important for this remake because the original StarCraft is still played as an e-sport, especially in South Korea.
  • Trump's zerg

    Can't help but compare Trumps supporters as The Zerg Some may know what it means, but it's an online gaming term that I think originated with Starcraft and it's racial opponent the zerglings. I think Cruz is going for broke in Iowa and South Carolina. For Iowa he has certainly put in the time, set up a good running game and is polling ahead of Trump. I think Trumps just going to Zerg him and overwhelm the caucuses with a surprising number of supporters. God bless them both.
  • First 'StarCraft 2' player officially recognized as an athlete by U.S. government

    As far as the United States government is concerned, eSports and traditional sports are equal. Five months after American immigration officials first cleared professional video game players to apply for the same visas as traditional athletes, the first StarCraft 2 pro has finally obtained a P-1A visa. Kim “Violet” Dong Hwan, a 23-year-old South Korean professional StarCraft player, followed trailblazing League of Legends star Danny Le to become an internationally recognized athlete on Dec. 9. Kim said he teared up over the phone when he was finally assured that he’d be allowed to live, compete, and earn a salary in...

    A federal appeals court has ruled that computer programmers do not have the right to reverse-engineer Blizzard Entertainment's video games to improve their playability. The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis ruled Thursday that federal law--specifically, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act--disallows players from altering Blizzard games to link with servers other than the company's official Battle.net site. Affected games published by Blizzard, a division of Vivendi Universal, include titles in its "Diablo," "Starcraft" and "Warcraft" lines. In a 3-0 decision, the court upheld a trial judge's ruling from October, concluding the programmers' "circumvention in this case constitutes infringement."...
