King of the Hill - Testie vs. Eriador

For a long time, Canada Testie has been sitting on his throne, polishing his golden crown greedily, without having to worry about it being taken from him. After taking the throne away from Spain SuKeR, Testie feels right at home on the Hill.
Now, a man from the land of the North has come to claim that throne. He happens to be one of the best in his country, since he will be the one to represent his country in the World Cyber Games. That's right, the challenger is none other than Norway Eriador[pG]!

Update: Testie wins four-nil. Press 'Read more' for coverage of the match.

Interview with Rekrul

I had a chat with United States [pG]Rekrul earlier this evening, after reading over at TeamLiquid that he would be heading for Korea in 7 days to join the Hexatron DreamTeam. I knew that he was going, but I didn't realize it was so soon.

After reading previous interviews with Rekrul, I thought that he was a bit arrogant and controversial, but in this interview my view of this happy American changes completely.
As expected, we talk a lot about his trip coming up, pro gaming, USA and of course World Cyber Games.

I would like to thank China Emlary for the images I've used in this interview. It comes from her vault.

Starcraft: Ghost @ E3 coverage

As some of you may have heard me say during E3, I got the chance to play StarCraft:Ghost at the show and I said I would let you guys know what it was like. I know a lot of you PC Gamers, myself included, are quite displeased at the fact that this game is only coming out for the home consoles, but you have to give the game a chance. It's advancing the StarCraft story and anymore of the wonderful story that I can get from the StarCraft universe would be quite nice! If you haven't played through the brilliant single-player mode of StarCraft, then take a break from multiplayer for a bit and see what a great story you are missing.

Anyways, this article discusses the various types of missions that are in StarCraft:Ghost, how varied the enemies are, and how it stacks up against other stealth action titles. Get ready for some exclusive pictures; Enjoy!

Sweden vs. Poland

Last time these two nations fought it had to be settled at the very last. One and a half years ago, Sweden beat Poland wih 5-4, with the even game score (11-11). That Nation war included some of the most well known names in Europe - TreK, Blackman, Daaman and sYs. The list could be made long, and I don't doubt for a second that this nation war will be less exciting.

Sportsmanship

There are two ways in which you can look at Brood War. Some of you will say that it is just a game, others would argue against this and claim that it is much more of a sport. It doesn't really matter how you categorize it really, what I am trying to get across is the foundations of what people think about the game. Brood War is a game/sport!
