StarCraft 2: TvT Fast Hellion Drops – Learning Experience


A new StarCraft 2 Heart of the Swarm gameplay video of a ladder match I played a few weeks ago. I am in silver league so don’t expect pro strategy here but a good learning experience for me.

How Have I Neglected To Mention These?


The month of March 2013 has been an amazing month for video games. We had the Tomb Raider reboot, Sim City and StarCraft 2 Heart of the Swarm launch all to amazing success (Sim City eventually got there).

I have played all 3, finished the Starcraft 2 HotS campaign and played through Tomb Raider to completion with so far a 83% completion rating. Not to mention Sim City, that game since launch has sucked away 70+ hours of my life, time of which I will never get back.

A quick look at a few of my cities in Sim City, a large metropolis along the coast with limited land size and a tourist town attracting people with an Expo Center.

I cannot measure the fun I’ve had with these games over the last few weeks, how have I neglected to mention these at all? Epic fail.

StarCraft 2 – First Game Back For 2012


Last year I did a video series “Learning from Bronze” for SC2, shortly after I got rid of my PC in an effort to build a new one. 12 months later I finally get around to it and now that I’ve got a new PC I’m back on SC2.

There are a few videos online helping Bronze league-rs improve their skills and get better but if you really need help not too many of them hold your hand teaching core mechanics, etc. I figure from the perspective of a fellow Bronze league player my gameplay may help others struggling with this game.

SC2: Battles Through The Bronze League – Season 3 Placement


OK, been a few months since I last played any StarCraft 2 and here we are with Season 3. Didn’t even realize season 3 had already started but in case you aren’t aware, with each new season comes a new placement match to get re-ranked in a league/division. My season 3 placement match, a TvZ played out very slowly, still managed to pull off a win to start the season though. Still lots to learn, and still need to practice using more hotkeys. Last season when I was playing a bit more I was getting better using them, but now as it’s been a while I’ve gone back to my old ways…very very slow.

StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Preview


I can’t seem to get enough StarCraft 2 news lately, the other day I posted a teaser trailer of the upcoming StarCraft 2 Zerg expansion “Heart of the Swarm” and now today @ joystiq.com they have a great article which previews this upcoming expansion.

I can’t wait to see what’s happened with Kerrigan since after the final events of the first chapter. She was looking a little less “Zergy” and a bit more human looking, she will no doubt be integral part of the Zerg campaign but at what length will be the question.

I wish I could post some of these images they are look really great, looks like a few snow missions and Kerrigan looks like she still has the Zerg dreadlocks but all in all looking more human, but what I don’t get is that she somehow is able to control the Zerg. I know she was a very powerful ghost in SC1 and some pretty good psionic abilities…maybe she uses them to control the hive? Not too sure but cannot wait for this one!
