    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. View full article

    I love the ability to change it back to old school graphics. I wish more remasters offered that option. They did something similar with the Grim Fandango Remaster.

    Also contact your hospital rep and local guild! They often have resources and materials to help with events. Let us know if you need further assistance with this or contacting your guild/hospital.

    Hello everyone, the moment you have all been waiting for,the PCKC Volunteer Schedule. I apologize for the delay, but we had a few technical difficulties, and I wanted to give you all time to ensure you had a chance to see what Panels you wanted to see. DO NOT FORGET: Mandatory volunteer training will be held on Thursday the 27th at 7PM to 9PM(ish) for Extra Life Staff at the Convention Center, please contact Sean or Lora if you cannot make this. This training will show you where to check in and where our booth is. This is a PCKC requirement, not Extra Life. Also, if you are not signed up to work for a day, you will not be getting a wristband for PCKC that day. We have also been asked to help out with head counts in the game room every other hour. Every Odd hour(11AM, 1PM, 3PM, etc) someone will just need to swing by the game room to do a count of how many people are playing games. This is to collect information for future Planet Entertainment Zone events, and to know peak hours. I will have a sheet at the booth to help track this. We will show you where the game room is during orientation. THINGS TO REMEMBER: *PCKC is busy, parking is going to be difficult and unless you are showing up at 9:00AM you may be parking a few blocks away. Please factor parking, check in and walking time into your commute. *If you need to change your schedule, please contact Sean Albillar via Email, Facebook or respond to this post as soon as possible. *Badges/Wristbands are only issued for days you volunteer and will need to be picked up from the Volunteer check in every day. *We require that all staff at the booth have Extra Life shirts on, or a well done cosplay to bring attention to the booth. However, I ask that you bring your Extra Life shirt regardless. *Food vouchers will be available and distributed by Sean Albillar *No small prizes for the BINGO Cards turned in, only the Raffle Prizes, which are a month to loot Crate, a $25 gift card to SoPro and a few other things. HERE IS THE SCHEDULE: FRIDAY SAT SUN Caleb Adegoke 3PM TO 7PM NOON TO 3:30PM 9AM TO 1PM Sean Albillar 11AM TO 3PM 9AM TO 1PM 9AM TO 1PM Laura Andrews 3:30PM TO 7PM 1PM TO 5PM Mike Andrews 3:30PM TO 7M 1PM TO 5PM Billy Bledsoe 3PM TO 6PM Jessie Bledsoe 3PM TO 6PM Brie Clemens 11AM TO 3PM 9AM TO 1PM 9AM TO 1PM Brigid Derby 3PM TO 7PM 9AM TO 1PM 9AM TO 1PM Ashley Finch 3:30PM TO 7PM 1PM TO 5PM David Finch 3:30PM TO 7PM 1PM TO 5PM Lori Glaspie 3PM TO 7PM NOON TO 3:30PM 9AM TO 1PM Rashida Merritt-Davis canceled Joseph Quijano 11AM TO 3PM 9AM TO 1PM JT Galloway 3PM TO 7PM NOON TO 3:30PM 11AM TO 3PM Spades Lunn NOON TO 4PM NOON TO 3:30PM canceled Thank you in advance for all your help!

    http://skillet.lifehacker.com/sneaky-philanthropy-dinner-parties-turn-a-night-with-1793167164 I saw this article today and thought it might be a good way to recruit as well as fund raise. The basic gist is you have a dinner party and ask that people contribute towards Extra Life what they would have spent going out to dinner. Throw in some before or after dinner board games and it might work well for recruitment as well. Has anyone here ever tried anything like this?
