Reddit User Returns StarCraft Gold Master Source Disk to Blizzard, Gets a Ton of Goodies and Trip to BlizzCon

According to a recent Reddit post, Reddit user Khemist49 recently purchased a bunch of old Blizzard stuff off Ebay and came across an interesting disk labeled “STARCRAFT Gold Master Source Code”.

Action Platformer Skyhill Coming October 6th

At E3 this year, I had a chance to check out several indie developers who were developing some pretty promising new games. One of the studios I checked out was Mandragora Studio who’s currently developing the Steam Greenlight game, Skyhill.

Street Fighter V Slated for Spring 2016, Who’s Ready for the Beat Down?

Those who know me know that I’m a huge fan of all things Capcom. Very few things are as exciting to me as news of upcoming games such as Mega Man, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, etc., but nothing, and I mean nothing, stirs my soul more than hearing of a new Street Fighter game!

For those who missed it, Capcom announced late last year that Street Fighter V is coming to PC and PS4 (Sorry Xbox), which is awesome news to someone who has loved almost every game in the franchise for more than 25 years! What’s new however, is that IGN recently got the scoop that SFV is tentatively slated for a Spring 2016 release! Yes!
