  1. PSA: Original StarCraft Is Now Free

    StarCraft received its first update in eight years today. The patch added a number of quality of life upgrades, like windowed fullscreen and windowed modes, improvements to matchmaking, game replay autosaves, new anti-cheating measures, and a number of compatibility fixes for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10. Oh, and the entirety of StarCraft and its expansion, Brood War, are now free. This comes on the heels of last month's announcement that StarCraft would be getting a complete remaster. The reborn RTS classic will be getting a full graphical overhaul and offer 4K resolutions to PC fans and newcomers alike. If you've never played or lost your original StarCraft game, now seems like the perfect time to give the game that started eSports and catapulted Blizzard into ubiquity a shot. StarCraft Remastered will release sometime this Summer, but in the meantime you can download and play the StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War for free on PC and Mac. All you have to do is head over to the StarCraft site and scroll down a bit.

  3. A South Korean news site, iNews24, published a story in which it claims multiple sources have confirmed that Blizzard will be pulling back the curtain on a high-definition remake of the original StarCraft this September during the Copa Intercontinental, a StarCraft II World Championship event held in Mexico City. Blizzard has released a statement to say that they have no announcements to make at this time, which doesn't necessarily deny that StarCraft HD is happening or that a reveal is imminent. iNews24 reports (as translated by Kotaku) that, "multiple sources with knowledge of Blizzard internal plans [have] said that Blizzard will reveal StarCraft HD to the public this September. The StarCraft HD remastered version will retain the original gameplay and is said to have improved graphics resolution and user interface (UI)." The original StarCraft and its Broodwar expansion have remained consistently among the top played games in Korea, despite being almost two decade old. Not bad for games released in 1998! Take this report with a grain of salt, but the market definitely exists for a remastered update to the beloved RTS classic, so there are few reasons to believe that Blizzard wouldn't be looking to release an HD upgrade in this era of remasters. What do you think? Would you jump back into classic StarCraft with a new coat of paint? View full article

  5. South Korean officials have released a document detailing the findings of a criminal investigation into StarCraft 2 match-fixing. The document indicates the involvement of twelve individuals including a head coach, two pro-gamers, one former pro-gamer, four brokers, two recruiters, and two gangsters. Nine of these people have been arrested, two indicted without arrest, and one is still at large. Though the statement released by investigators doesn't name any of the people involved, it has been widely reported in South Korean media that the prominent individuals involved are Gerrard, the head coach of team Prime, pro players YoDa and BBoongBBoong, and former StarCraft 1 pro turned journalist Enough. The ring allegedly worked like this: The gangsters operated as financial backers, providing money to brokers (one of which was Enough) who would in turn solicit match results from Gerrard, YoDa, and BBoongBBoong. Gerrard acted as a conduit to the players, receiving a cut for continued access. The gangsters would then turn around and profit from the fixed match results through betting clubs or websites. Players, coach, and brokers would receive payouts of tens of millions of won, which converts to tens of thousands in USD. Each match was thrown for amounts ranging from $4,500 to $17,600. Gerrard has been charged with spending over $50,000 in illicitly won money over the past year. Investigators claim to have apprehended everyone involved in this particular ring and seem confident that this crackdown will prevent more occurrences in the future and "preserve the spirit of fairness that is at the heart of wholesome sports culture." For more information, Team Liquid has translated the entire statement. You can even get links to the allegedly thrown matches. View full article
