So the Queue Crew Podcast decided to try out Heroes of the Storm.  We get our feet wet and try our best.  I spliced together some of our best team fights and plays throughout the night.   Not all our games were wins, but we sure tried our hardest.

I’ve been perusing the internet as of late and found something incredibly interesting to keep track of. StarCrafts is a series of short animations involving the units from the universe of Blizzard’s Starcraft. It gives a certain personality to the characters involved, and makes the normally serious atmosphere of the game relatively childish and fun (personally my favorites are the dog-like zerglings or the short, pudgy marines). There are a total of 7 episodes out right now, with more on the way in a relatively timely fashion. Hopefully you all enjoy the videos.

So as people delve further and further into the depths of Diablo, I’d like to take a moment to link you to this amazing article that shows us the features we wanted, but never got in this amazing third installment of a legacy. Diablo III was meant to have a plethora of amazing features that never got implemented in the final iteration of the game. Some of these features are in the works as downloadable future content, but that doesn’t change the fact that some of them should have been implemented during the initial release. First and foremost, I would like to point out that, although announced, PvP was a part of the game that was scrubbed (if I understand correctly) in order to meet their deadline. While not necessarily a major let down in other games, most online games similar to Diablo should have a fully functional PvP, and somehow the world feels a little bland without it. Blizzard will undoubtedly remedy this situation later, but the fact remains. Check out what else they left you without in the article below!

Nine Compelling Diablo III Features That Didn’t Make the Final Game

Well folks, I won’t say I told you so (because technically I didn’t, but I did tell a couple of my friends it would happen), but I did indeed foresee the obvious. With Diablo 3’s release come and gone, and everyone in hot pursuit of awesome items and sweet, sweet satisfaction via gameplay, it would seem that Blizzard overlooked a couple of things…or a dozen…or a hundred. Point is, Blizzard done goofed. Now to all you purists who believe that your favorite company can do no wrong: fine, believe what you want. Everyone else? Well, listen if you want to. Now, a lot of people were skeptical about a game that should normally feature a single player offline mode to require an ‘always-on’ internet connection, and you’d be right in being so. The article I’ve linked to is one issue out of many that a lot of hardcore Diablo fans are raring about and heated by as of late. Blizzard will undoubtedly fix the issue, but I think we should dissect why there were issues in the first place. Either way, it’s not my place to say what should or shouldn’t be done. I may be studying computer science, but I’m no game developer. Check out the article for some insight into the latest D3 bug.

Are you fellow gamers ready for Diablo 3? In just 2 more days, one of the most anticipated games of the decade will be released, and many servers will undoubtedly crash in the ensuing chaos and overload of people trying to play the game. Until then, check out these tips and tricks released by the masterminds at Blizzard to help you cope with starting fresh. To those of you who got to play during the Beta, these may or may not be helpful, but to the general public, I recommend that you check these out to get a feel for that super new awesome class you wanted to pick, or to help you solidify which character you want to play.

Ominous text to a degree...let's roll with it.

Well folks, it was bound to happen eventually. Here’s my coverage of this week’s Game of the Week: Starcraft 2. Heeded as one of the greatest real time strategy games of all time, following predecessors such as Warcraft, Starcraft and Red Alert, Starcraft 2 has improved upon the already complex system of the original. Before I move further with this article, however, allow me to preface it by saying that it has been a while since I’ve played, and I may or may not murder character names…that is all. With an abundance of troops, an interesting storyline, and a major graphic overhaul, Starcraft 2 is definitely a fun game to get into, but I suggest looking elsewhere if you aren’t into it for the multiplayer. While the story is set up well enough, the true playability of this game comes from clicking that ‘find match’ button and improving your micro/macro and overall strategy. I myself was guilty of that initially, but came to embrace (and fear) playing against others to see where I ranked against the rest of the world. (more…)
