In-line with the news that the Blizzard computer game StarCraft2 will be out soon around end of the year or so, there's been a rise in the interest of all things StarCraft - and Lego fans are no exception!
This is a Terran Battlecruiser, built by BrickShelf user Vana, which we might add, borders on the level and class of Lego's own Ultimate Collection sets! We sure would like to see Lego make this set as an official offering - assuming there's such a partnership with Blizzard to make these!
Let's face it, the people who play games, computer games that is, started out as 'nerds'. Sure these days almost everyone plays computer games, thanks to the commercialisation of it all, like how almost everything else ends up being turned into a profit by making it 'cool'.
However, at the end of the day, the 'nerds' still own because they're the hardcore gamers. They have the passion and the drive to stay home and work at their games until they're unmatched by 'noobs' who come in and try their luck. The downside is, they might not be good outdoors.
Yet, with these days cost of living going up due to increased oil prices worldwide, maybe 'nerds' have it good after all, because now, more people are going to stay at home! Brick Gamers takes a spin on this topic in our 23rd Lego comic!

While Lego might not approve of making Lego guns, you really can't stop Lego fans from making anything they want from Lego - including guns. In this case, it's an automated Sentry Gun, inspired by the computer game Team Fortress 2. This is definately no easy feat to make!

DOTA, or Defense of the Ancients, is a spin-off the computer real-time strategy (RTS) game WarCraft3. It took on popularity in Malaysia, and is still being played in the local cybercafes, just like how CounterStrike (CS), seemed too stubborn to budge from the local gaming scene. As a result, there have been a lot of condemnation about DOTA players in Malaysia, but, is DOTA really that bad when we have good players...and they even learn stuff from it? Well...some stuff...
Sad but true. In our modern digital world, it's so easy to be thrown back into the stone age - just cut off our electricity, or even our Internet access will do, and we're suddenly stuck back in the days before online was the norm!
A decade after the Diablo and his brothers were banished, they are now officially lining up once again, as another hugely-anticipated titanic sequel is rising in the gaming scene. As the Lord of Terror awakes from his slumber so will the legion of heroes...but some - if not most - would rather get their piece of Diablo right now. Who can blame them? Alas, Blizzard is but one, if not the only gaming company, which makes all your waiting worthwhile. So we shall await...
