World of Starcraft

by on Jan.19, 2011, under StarCraft 2 Mods

Usually I’m not that much into custom maps or playing games on them, but this one made me smile so it seems worth mentioning to me 😉 (keep in mind that it’s in pre-release state). Behold World of Starcraft:
Video removed by ActiBlizzard

P.S.: The developers are still looking for people that participate in the creation of this modification. Visit http://www.worldofstarcraft.proboards.com/ if you’re interested.

Edit: The mod is not going to be called “World of Starcraft” because of copyright issues with ActiBlizzard concerning that name in particular. From what I’ve read so far it may still happen though ;).

Zergling Rush #1

by on Jan.09, 2011, under NoobCraft 2, RushCraft 2

I’m sure this is not going to be the last one I’ll show :D.

Now with great audio commentary by Xhinde and me :). If it sounds choppy or out-of-sync it’s because TS³ doesn’t record silence :-(.

I think I’m not going to write much about it other than this:

  • If you’re going for a rush, finish off both players quickly!
  • Hence: don’t let the remaining player tech!
  • keep an eye on your economy!
  • use the units you’ve got on the field!

Enjoy!

Rush Hour

by on Dec.19, 2010, under NoobCraft 2

While talking to my brain washing master Daven, i came to a conclusion. We had talked about this many times before. That after a certain time of the day (Mostly 00:00), people just tend to rush. With this in mind, such great phrases like “We rush back after 12 o´Clock (Sounds better in German)” and “This is Rush Hour” came to be. Why am i telling you this? Mainly to know if that is what you experienced too. So… Tell me if that is true or false and why.

You might be asking yourself “Who is this bat shit insane person talking to?”. Then yes, teddy bears with squid arms. 5 of them if possible.

The Humble Indie Bundle #2

by on Dec.17, 2010, under Software

Step 3: Enter your email address correctly so we can get your battle cruiser I mean bundle operational!

http://www.humblebundle.com/

It’s worth whatever you pay. Braid and Machinarium alone are awesome games and Revenge of the Titans seems to be a nice tower defense game. Plus you’re doing something good. Ewww, did I just say that? You’ve got 4 days left, better hurry!

Edit: The availability of the bundle has been extended, you’ve stil got three days left (up to the 25th). If you spend more than the average you’ll get the Humble Indie Bundle #1 as a bonus gift ;).

Sc2gears

by on Dec.15, 2010, under Software

One of my neighbours seems to have some kind of party, rendering me sleepless. Well, Protagoras says: “There are two sides to every question.” So instead of asking myself why the hell I would miss lectures tomorrow, I asked myself what useful other things I could do to make up for missing lectures tomorrow.

And the great oracle of google brought me: Sc2gears. Though it seems to have some potential left for future development, it’s well worth a try. It offers nice replay analysis graphs, automatic replay saving (with dynamic filenames created according to your will) and from what I’ve read even APM warning sounds and whatnot.

General Zod says: KNEEL!

Although I’m pretty sure he meant to say: check it out! 😉

P.S.: Also, it’s written in Java so I can’t complain about it not running on my favourite OS :D.

Drone Rush #2

by on Dec.12, 2010, under NoobCraft 2, Pilotless Drones

This time Xhinde and I have been presented with a more uhm “valiant” effort at getting drone rushed (because actually both players participated) compared to the last time Lordie and I encountered such a foolish attempt. Too bad they were pilotless drones. Thanks to WildUdi and eXodus for sharing, well, enjoyable 4 minutes :).

On a side note: I still don’t get why anyone would try such a thing.
