Blizzard Arcade Coverage Banner

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: Blademaster v0.3
Type: Arena
Creator: TheUltragon
Details: You are the Blademaster. A fearless, Supreme and swift warrior follow a story throwing you into the fight between Horde and Alliance.  Too boring for you? then fight other players in the action-packed PvP-Mode.
StarCraft Link:  battlenet://starcraft/map/1/264157

Epic’s Thoughts: Story Mode — Felt a lot like Orcs vs Humans, but with a funny story line. Wish it had voice over, but not sure that’s allowed.

Kilroy’s Thoughts: The Story mode starts off funny but is really short it was a fun and easily controlled game focusing on mouse clicks in conjunction with QWE keys which makes for really intuitive PVP play in pvp.
