Team Liquid recruits Heroes of the Storm team founded by StarCraft's legendary Durán brothers

Comment
The Heroes of the Storm art with Team Liquid branding.

In their day, the brothers Pedro "LucifroN" Moreno Durán and Juan "VortiX" Moreno Durán were two of the most dominant StarCraft players in Europe. There was a time when it seemed like they were getting strong placements in just about every major tournament. Now, after fading out of the StarCraft scene, the brothers have just signed with Team Liquid.

Only this time, they’re playing Heroes of the Storm.

TIE Fighter-inspired animated short is visually amazing, an affront to historical accuracy

Animated TIE Fighters head into battle

If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that Star Wars is Very Important, and the games are the Most Important. That's why I was so tickled by this old-school anime-style fan video that's been making the rounds on Twitter. Not only is it a tremendous piece of fan animation, but it's also an ode to the greatest thing Star Wars ever gave PC gaming: TIE Fighter.

It's also an appalling piece of pro-Imperial propaganda.

Topic of the Week: What game would you use to introduce someone to PC gaming?

Topic of the Week: Introducing someone to PC games

There are people who don’t play games on PC. Some of these people actually own a PC and don’t even realise what they have. It’s madness. But instead of committing them or pointing at them in the street, we should pester them incessantly with game recommendations that will bring them into the fold. 

And what recommendations might they be? That’s our Topic of the Week. We want to know what game’s you’d recommend to someone to introduce them to PC gaming. A multiplatform game that shows how much better that version is on PC. Something you’d never see on another platform? Let us know in the comments.

Dragon Age: Inquisition's Jaws of Hakkon DLC launches

Dragon Age: Inquisition’s first piece of single-player DLC snuck up on us, didn’t it? Only announced yesterday, Jaws of Hakkon launches today, adding a new story arc to the Inquisitor’s adventure involving the fate of the last Inquisitor. He went to hunt a dragon, and after that, nobody knows.

World of Warcraft’s WoW Token will release soon, prices will flux depending on market forces

The WoW Token logo

Blizzard recently announced the WoW Token; a tradable in-game item that can be redeemed for 30 days worth of game time. It essentially allows players to pay for their WoW subscription using gold made in-game, much like the PLEX system in EVE Online. 

WoW Tokens are due to make their way into the game very soon, and Blizzard have started to detail how they will work.

H1Z1 Zombie Slice

H1Z1, Daybreak Games’ zombie survival game, has sold more than one million copies on Steam in just over three months. It looks like the 'mixed' reviews on the game's Steam page hasn't stopped people shuffling towards their monitors, arms extended, demanding more zombie survival experiences.

The Witcher 3 has growth-over-time beards, and DLC that will eliminate the need to shave

The Witcher 3 Geralt beard

In probably the most absurd/brilliant news story of the week, German magazine Gamestar has discovered that The Witcher 3 main character Geralt will have a realistically-modelled beard that will grow over the course of the game. Not only that, but you’ll also be able to download some DLC that will stop the hair ever growing, like a perpetual razor constantly removing every millimeter of stubble that dares invade Geralt’s chin.

The longest turn in Hearthstone history is playing out on Twitch

Comments2
Hearthstone turn record

Turns in Hearthstone are nice and quick things. You have time to look at your cards, chew your lip a bit and then play. If you don’t, the timer runs out and your turn is over, regardless of whether or not you’ve actually done anything. 

A couple of Hearthstone players have been in the same turn for around 10 hours. It’s all down to wizardry and the desire to break set a record.

Bloodsports.TV's gameplay trailer has buckets of blood, but a lot less sport

Comment
Bloodsports.TV gameplay trailer

Fatshark’s Bloodsports.TV is worlds away from War of the Roses and War of the Viking, the studio's last two games. With the hordes of charging enemies, co-op gladiator action and the thick, comic book lines, it’s more evocative of Borderlands and arcade and console classic, Smash TV. 

It’s due out on Steam next week, but you can take a gander at the post-apocalyptic gladiatorial combat in a new gameplay trailer right now.

Stronghold Crusader 2 DLC giveaway

Stronghold Crusader 2 recently got a bit fatter, with some DLC that adds new scenarios and sieges. More walls for you to hurl men and machines at and new maps to defend with stalwart fortresses. 

The Princess and the Pig marks the return of one of the original antagonists from Stronghold, the Pig, along with a new character, the Princess, so you’ll have two new AI opponents to face. And you can face them for free, because we’ve got 500 Steam keys to give away.

Every Rust player has been permanently assigned a skin and hair colour. Including pube colour

Comments2
rust race face facepunch

In an update earlier this month, Facepunch made it so every Rust player would have a race and face permanently assigned to them. The new look is locked to your Steam ID. That means that every character you create will share exactly the same randomised look.

Facepunch founder Garry Newman said it’s “just like in real life, you are who you are – you can’t change your skin colour or your face.”

The change has angered some Rust players who want the freedom to change how they look in game. Not everyone, though. One player couldn’t be happier with his blue pubes.
