    Okay I didn't have the full quote: http://www.incgamers.com/Interviews/270/blizzards-frank-pearce-interview/2 That's really lame.

    Interesting Robin Walker Interview

    Covers a wide variety of topics: http://www.kritzkast.com/?page_id=521 The scrapped Eng unlock was an interesting idea I wonder what they came up with instead.

    Unleash the Hounds: Starcraft II Beta begins

    Well we're getting a South-Eastern Asia server which is a lot closer than most while still being culturally relevant so I have no issues with this so long as.. Which Blizz sorta has the intention of doing: although their plan isn't as integrated as I would like.

    Unleash the Hounds: Starcraft II Beta begins

    And Blizzard's discussion: http://forums.battle.net/thread.html?topicId=25026452511&pageNo=1#0 Cry some more. Seriously. BETA: changes come in trickles not all at once, Ultra is a work in progress. Besides they can walk over forcefields now which at least makes them more viable ZvP.

    Some other points about Banelings: Banelings also get a bonus against buildings. When burrowed Banelings still have the player controlled option of instant detonation. Like all ground Zerg units when burrowed you can activate autocast on unburrow, i.e. wait until an enemy unit is within attack...

    Mac user too stupid to operate Steam

    My favourite part is when he gets the warning that Portal might not work on his Mac and then complains when it doesn't work.

    What sort of math? Maybe you can combine the two.

    Doesn't work that way, matchmaking changes your League based on multiple games not just one: You've probably had a bunch of losses to Gold players semi-recently and it's only been bonus points that has kept your rank high Plat, or something.

    Unleash the Hounds: Starcraft II Beta begins

    Okay firstly the Beta wasn't meant to be newbie-friendly, while matchmaking helps A LOT just be aware that the retail version will feature better help for beginners. As for a guide, this one describes the basics well, it was written for SC1 so not everything is applicable but the core ideas...

    Counter-Strike: Source Update In Beta - Available Now

    You got a source for that? OT: They made Defense Grid and their blog talks about free DLC which I hadn't heard about.

    Unleash the Hounds: Starcraft II Beta begins

    Had a crazy game the other day, me and a friend were both Protoss up against double-Zerg. Game goes into late-game, we've got mass ground and they went mass Broodlords, head on with some Blink micro I think we could have taken them but we were out of position when they attacked and the game...

    Unleash the Hounds: Starcraft II Beta begins

    Multiplayer is in a very releasable state, balance work is still going but I can't see any changes being so big that it would affect the release date. If anything is holding back release it would be battle.net, it's been having issues and since connection to it is required for SC2 it is...

    Unleash the Hounds: Starcraft II Beta begins

    Yeah replays work by sending all of the commands given during the game back though the system to recreate it. Like Pitz said you can't skip ahead because the system has to process these commands in sequence. However an important new thing Blizz has done is allow you to jump around in the parts...

    You could always stick with the fan that comes with the CPU, it gets the job done.
