Blizzard addressing balance issues in StarCraft 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2449 days, 2 hours, 3 minutes ago
Saturday, October 09, 2010 8:14:03 AM GMT
Balance is an important issue in any RTS, and it appears that Blizzard has been paying attention to online game stats for StarCraft 2. Overall, the Protoss faction seems to have an unusually high win percentage against Terrans in certain leagues of play. Furthermore, while Zerg statistics don't indicate any huge disadvantages, Blizzard notes in the Battle.Net blog that "the feedback from the community as well as our own play experience tells us that improvements are necessary to make Zerg matchups feel a...

GoldenEye Wii Gets Golden Classic Controller Pro

Friday, August 13, 2010 7:39:57 AM GMT
GoldenEye is set to make a comeback on the Wii, but the way it was played back on the Nintendo 64 didn't involve any waggle remote or nunchuk attachment. To make GoldenEye on Wii feel more like the classic, you'd want the classic controller. (more)

Blizzard Not Worried About StarCraft 2 Piracy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2508 days, 2 hours, 23 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 7:53:44 AM GMT
Michael Ryder, vice president and executive managing director for Blizzard’s international operations, seems to indicate that Blizzard isn't too worried about piracy. In fact, the company believes there's enough incentives in the just-released StarCraft II for would-be thieves to actually shell out cash for the new PC game. (more)

Blizzard now moderating 'inappropriate' StarCraft 2 maps

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2513 days, 21 minutes ago
Friday, August 06, 2010 9:56:08 AM GMT
Look out, all you naughty StarCraft 2 map makers out there, Blizzard is watching. A thread popped up on the StarCraft 2 community forum in which a user named Cyrileo complained of his map being removed from Battle.net. According to Cyrileo, the mapped was deemed "inappropriate" by Blizzard and subsequently deleted. Further on in the thread, as reported by our cohorts at Big Download, Blizzard community manager Lylirra noted that all maps are "subject to review to ensure that they promote a fun and safe...

Monday, August 02, 2010 9:22:37 AM GMT
Shake off that sense of deja vu. We're talking about a different Cabela's game here: Activision has just announced Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011, the next installment in its iterative series of hunt-em-down-and-shoot-em-ups. It's set to stalk retail shelves "late fall" and will be available on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and DS systems.

New GoldenEye 007 also coming to DS this year

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2520 days, 9 hours, 34 minutes ago
Friday, July 30, 2010 12:42:50 AM GMT
When rumors were flying about a new GoldenEye game just before E3, both Wii and DS versions were supposedly in the works. But when Nintendo and Activision made it official during the expo, only the Daniel Craig-ified Wii game was announced (despite the DS logo also appearing on the official game page). Today, the DS version of GoldenEye 007 showed up again, this time in Nintendo's upcoming releases calendar that joined the company's quarterly earnings report. (more)

SDCC: Seriously, GoldenEye on the DS

Saturday, July 24, 2010 9:03:24 PM GMT
Yes, this is a real thing. GoldenEye on the Wii is something you've probably already heard about. We expected to see it here at an Activision preview event, but we didn't expect to see a DS game. At least not yet. It was here, though, brought by developer n-Space. It was being shown off by a personal friend who works there, so I was the first to get a look at the game. (more)

Call of Duty's Pay To Play Rumors Squashed By Treyarch, Infinity Ward

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2530 days, 54 minutes ago
Tuesday, July 20, 2010 9:22:50 AM GMT
The publisher of Call of Duty may want to explore "new digital business models" for its bestselling military shooter—perhaps as an MMO—but rumors of Modern Warfare 2 going pay-to-play appear to be premature. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling took to his massively followed Twitter account today, dispelling rumors that the hit PS3, Xbox 360 and PC game will start carrying its own fee to play online.

Report: Activision Invested More than $100 Million in StarCraft II Development

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2533 days, 1 hour, 5 minutes ago
Saturday, July 17, 2010 9:11:34 AM GMT
Activision has a lot riding on StarCraft II's success. According to the Wall Street Journal (subscription required), the publisher has contributed some $100 million to the development of the anticipated sequel. That number puts it roughly on par with Grand Theft Auto IV, which also cost around $100 million to develop. The Wall Street Journal's report states that the StarCraft II figure doesn't include marketing, so the cost is apt to be even higher. (more)

Prior to E3, DJ Hero 2 developer Freestyle Games' Jamie Jackson said that the sequel would feature a massive artist list, packed with even more popular artists than the first game.

Today, we live in a multiplatform world. Many games that hit the PlayStation 3 are also on the Xbox 360, and some of those even make it to the PC. Due to hardware constraints, the Wii may get a watered down version of the software. (more)

StarCraft 2 getting 3D support post-launch

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2546 days, 1 hour, 24 minutes ago
Sunday, July 04, 2010 8:53:05 AM GMT
While StarCraft 2 may benefit from a "robust new 3D graphics-rendering engine," we didn't know until recently that the game would be receiving a post-launch patch enabling that other kind of 3D (read: the "needs glasses" kind). In an interview with IGN at a South Korean media event -- where, no joke, a StarCraft 2 logo-emblazoned Korean Air plane was unveiled -- production director Chris Sagaty explained, "We will be releasing 3D in the first few months, for those Nvidia cards and screens that support it."
