Goodbye SC, Hello SC

Goodbye SC, Hello SC

For the last three and a half years my main video game has been StarCraft 2. I finished the main and expansion campaigns almost immediately, and the majority of my time has been spent playing against other players online. I played several thousand games, and if I had to make a rough estimation of 10 […]

Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone First Impressions Review

I’ve been using the Pyle Pro PMHM2 omni-directional microphone for about six months now. I’ve worn it two ways (“wrong” and the “right” way according to my friend wurmr) with equal results. For Skype the microphone is a little on the faint side even after software boosting. For programs like Open Source Broadcaster, however, the […]

Bronze4Life StarCraft 2 Stream

I’ve been playing StarCraft 2 for about three years. I’ve also been watching StarCraft 2 games played by others for the same amount of time.

Farewell to StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty

In May of 2010 I started playing the StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty beta. I kept playing right up until launch day July 7, 2010. Since then, I’ve finished the single player campaign and played thousands of games of StarCraft 2. StarCraft 2 was more to me than a game, it was a way to […]

Change Your Battle Net Password

Blizzard Entertainment announced yesterday that their online gaming service Battle.Net has been compromised by hackers. Blizzard stated that key information could have been obtained, including encrypted passwords and personal question information. However, I don’t think they know the full extent of the breach. Blizzard recommends that everyone change their password. This means that if you’ve […]

Monoprice 8323 Premium Hi-Fi DJ Style Over-the-Ear Pro Headphone Review

SPAWN MORE OVERLORDS That’s StarCraft 2 reminding me to build floating farms so I can increase the size of my army. Since I’m not the world’s best SC2 player, Sedagive? and the two boys hear this phrase quite often. Almost as much as WE REQUIRE MORE MINERALS On top of that, I was playing more […]

My First Hours With Diablo III

My First Hours With Diablo III

The game primarily uses the mouse for movement, combat, and abilities. I remember watching my friend Roclar play it. “Okay, so there’s […]
