Blizzard has announced Starcraft Remastered. Relive those classic fond moments in HD without any gameplay changes. Units, buildings, environments, improved game audio, and resolutions have all been updated for modern computers.  The original game runs at a resolution of 640×480 pixels without any mods while remaster will support up to 4k Ultra HD Resolution. This is the game you fell in love with so many years ago, now with a fresh coat of paint.

Highlighted Features

  • Remastered Graphics
  • Revised Dialogue and Audio
  • Blizzard Friends and Matchmaking
  • Classic StarCraft Gameplay

StarCraft: Remastered will include high-resolution unit models, buildings, and tilesets, as well as music and sound effects bringing the game into the modern era while retaining Starcraft’s classic style.

All the gameplay balances are preserved from the original game. There are changes to the original cinematics by improving them to a 1080p resolution. Mission interludes and introductions now have added comic book style illustrations.

We all have fond memories of playing Starcraft. Maybe it was at school, a friend’s house or LAN party. It’s amazing to see Blizzard give breath to an old franchise without diminishing its value. Far too often are games remade and lose the nostalgic feel they once gave. Starcraft Remastered is everything you remember with a modern touch. Hopefully, this will open the doors for other games being remastered. We previously saw Diablo 1 get remade within the Diablo 3 engine for Diablo’s anniversary event. How long before we get to see Diablo 2 Remastered?

I was born with bits in my blood. Rally racing getting my tires covered in blood. Started with a Nintendo Nes. I love all systems, can't choose which is the best. If you held a Zapper to my head, I'd just say Gamecube even though its dead. We went full circle from carts to blu rays right back to carts. Even had that debacle of are games art? I'm forever ready for my next adventure, now let's push start.

There hasn’t been much buzz lately about any new acquisitions in the world of video game intellectual property. According to a recent report, Sony is currently engaged in discussions with a well-funded partner to potentially acquire the renowned film studio Paramount, along with all the exciting possibilities that come with such a merger.

As reported in the New York Times (thanks, ResetEra), Sony Picture Entertainment is reportedly in discussions with Apollo Global Management, an investment firm, as per two sources familiar with the matter. In the past, Apollo had made an offer to acquire Paramount for a minimum of $26 billion, but their bid was ultimately turned down.

The terms of the joint bid are currently under discussion, and there is a chance that the two parties may decide against making a formal offer. Unnamed sources have revealed that Paramount is currently in exclusive discussions with Skydance, preventing any official offer from being made at this time. Investor opposition to the recent deal that Skydance brought seems to have been significant.

The potential impact of such an acquisition is immense. First and foremost, it would introduce adaptations of Sonic and Halo into the expanding media empire of the PlayStation platform holder. Following the announcement, Paramount’s stock experienced a significant 11% surge in after-hours trading.

In the ongoing conflict against the Automaton invasion fleet, the Helldivers 2 players have successfully halted their advance. However, the situation has now reached a tiresome stalemate. Yet again, the machines refuse to take a break from their relentless pursuit of progress, with reports emerging of the Factory Striders being deployed in record-breaking quantities.

There have been reports of alleged machines that were supposedly encountered during Operation Swift Disassembly, which was just the beginning of a larger campaign. However, these accounts should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are unverified and seem to be more on the imaginative side. Factory Striders have gained a reputation as formidable weapons platforms that can produce more Automatons while enduring significant damage. If the machines are able to withstand such a relentless assault, it will be necessary to develop innovative strategies.

Have you come across groups of Factory Striders in Helldivers 2? Which strategies are proving to be the most effective in taking down these armored brutes? The Orbital Railcannon Strike will prove to be a valuable asset in the comments section below.

Todd Howard affirms that the timeline of the Fallout series is coherent and well-constructed

The recent release of Amazon’s adaptation of Fallout has ignited a renewed interest in the series and brought attention to the captivating alternate history that forms its foundation. Fans have expressed concern that the TV show’s events might be at odds with the plot of the Obsidian Entertainment video game New Vegas. Warning: Spoilers ahead for New Vegas and Amazon’s show!

Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard and Fallout TV executive producer Jonathan Nolan recently sat down with IGN to discuss the timeline. Howard was taken aback when showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet presented him with the surprising concept of obliterating Shady Sands, the bustling capital of the New California Republic, in the aftermath of the events in New Vegas. Howard eventually warmed up to the idea: “After discussing it, we realized that this could be a significant story moment that many things hinge upon.”

It seems that they had to make some tough decisions to ensure everything fell into place, but Howard emphasizes the importance of preserving the integrity of the Fallout timeline: “We take great care with the timeline. There seems to be some confusion in certain areas. However, all the events from the previous games, including New Vegas, did occur. We take great caution in that matter. We’re really pushing the limits here, but the explosions occur right after the events of New Vegas.

What are your thoughts on this? Is it up to par? Even though it may not have a significant impact on the overall quality of the games or show, it is comforting to know that those in charge are paying attention. We value your feedback and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
