Activision Blizzard has seen a record stock drop this year, but they stabilized at nearly half their previous value. Future prospects are most likely mobile gaming.

I'm hoping that maybe the naga tech tree might be expanded into a full tree like the other four and that they might be available in multiplayer. It's probably not going to happen, at least not...

That's too bad. I was introduced through WC3 myself and I still think a WC2-based Retrocraft is interesting. I'm sick to death of Blizzard's "unite the races to save teh world" plots and their absurd...

Anyway, I'm getting off topic.

Something I wanted to discuss was factions. Back in the halcyon days of SC1/BW mapping, some people made custom campaigns which featured new factions like terran...

There’s a thread on spacebattles “UA Plays: Starcraft” that reviews the writing. Pretty much everyone agreed that BW had big problems. It’s scattered across dozens of pages, but I’ll try to post some...

Okay.

I don’t have any further ideas for Warcraft. Retrocraft seems to be doing just fine already. I’m more interested in rewriting Starcraft because there don’t seem to be any similar efforts to...

Even so, I'm trying to devise the setting in such a way that canonical events can be recycled fairly easily. Broad strokes if not details.

For example:

Why do we need to?

Kerry was infested in SC1 as a way to make the zerg campaign a continuation of the terran campaign and maintain player investment in the story. However, this came at the cost of...
