Besides just the Blizzard Arcade, there are reports that StarCraft: Wings of Liberty may be making it’s way to players accounts for free! Reports show that players who have not previously purchased StarCraft are getting the game added to their Battle.net accounts. There could be may reasons for this, and we discuss them all on the show this week! If you want to read about the reports, check out this article here.

Heroes of the Storm News Banner

Back to school…. back to school… to prove to my parents that I’m not a noob… It’s time to pack your lunch, and prepare yourself for the return of the Heroes of the Dorm competition! If you are currently enrolled in school, grab 4 of your best friends and quickly learn how to play video games! But this year, Heroes of the Dorm will not be aired on ESPN, but will be streamed live only on Facebook. There are many things that could have changed this and they are discussed on this week’s show! Check out the announcement of HotD here! 

This past week the Diablo team took the time to sit down and talk players directly about the upcoming Necromancer character coming to the game. They covered the amount of art required to design this character, how the characters are going to play different than those of Diablo 2, and much much more. If you want to read the a quick recap, check out this article here. If you want to watch the interview, here is the video for it!

Overwatch News Banner

Not many games in reach the 10 million copies sold within the first year, let alone hitting 20 million… but Overwatch proved that won’t settle for second best. It was recently announced that recently Overwatch hit the 25 million copies sold benchmark! From both of us here at the Frozen Nerdz we would like to say a huge congratulations and job well done! Here’s to 25 million copies and 25 million more!

It’s that time of the year again when we hear about what’s next for the Rock the Cabinet contest. This year brings a whole new concept by it being based around Co-op missions! Like previous years, creators will have the chance to walk away with $10,000 USD, tickets to a future BlizzCon, and a chance to sit down and have a developer jam session with Blizzard themselves! If you are a Blizzard Arcade creator, take the time to read over the full details of the contest, and we will see you inside the StarCrade!

Each week we pick a game from the endless library of the Blizzard Arcade to test them out and help the listeners find some awesome stupidly fun games.

Game: Zerus Assault v1.4
Type: Strategy
Creator: TiBzZO

Details: Not every game in the Starcade is a game that is built to be different from the normal RTS sometimes they take directly from the regular starcraft RTS and add new challenges for the players.  This game involves 2 aspects, one is a constant assault on a Terran AI who is your ally, they are land locked from you and you can aid them directly so you have to indirectly stop the zerg onslaught before they happen. Seems reasonable but in addition to that you are also being assaulted by a protoss army that is far more formidable and advanced than you are from the start, so you have to be mindful of building base defenses asap otherwise you will get eradicated almost immediately and the game will be a loss.  Overall this game is very difficult and provides interesting challenges at first, but once you overcome them the skill requirement drops off fairly fast and can leave you wondering if the game is finished yet.
