The past weekend saw political party members in Sweden square off in a tournament known a Politikerstarcraft. Created in 2010 by Jonathan Rieder Lundkvist, who was a member of the Pirate Party, it was originally intended to be a fun distraction from the usual boring news about politics. However, the party that won the tournament in 2010 also ended up winning the election.
One of my fondest gaming memories was playing Total Annihilation back in 1997. It was a time when Cavedog Entertainment provided new units to use every month; free of charge. These new units weren’t all that game-changing either; just nice additions to the already massive arsenal that few other games have managed to provide. Things have changed a lot since then.
It feels like everyone is getting on the MOBA bandwagon. While Dota 2 and League of Legends are currently ruling the roost, EA has opened their own take on the genre for open beta.

Pilot a free premium tank known as Karl in an arena that should look very familiar.

As part of the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls launch event, members of the media were invited to try Blizzard’s upcoming multiplayer brawler, Heroes of the Storm (HotS). Naturally, I was extremely sceptical about this particular game; and I wasn’t the only one to express some concern about what we were about to see. It was fortunate that this happened to be a preview of a game from a company that likes to take its time building a proper game, because Heroes of the Storm turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
DICE has decided to delay the impending launch of the first Battlefield 4 expansion until some time in early April. The expansion was supposed to pay homage to Battlefield 2142′s Titan mode, and feature maps involving storming opposing naval vessels. The reason for this move appears to be technical issues which make a buggy game even worse.
