Nearly a decade after it released Warcraft 3, Blizzard still churns out updates for its seminal PC real-time strategy (RTS) game from time to time.

-Warcraft III will now write its registry keys on launch.
- Widescreen (stretched) resolutions should now be available in the Video options.
- You can now purchase items from shops while Hexed.
- Scroll of Town Portal will no longer be consumed when casting fails when used at the same time that your Hero is Hexed.
- Hex will no longer extend the duration of Metamorphosis.
- Hex will no longer disable mana or health regeneration of Heroes.
- Wisps Detonate ability will no longer drain mana from Heroes while under the effects of Potion of Invulnerability.

Star Wars - The Old Republic Timeline Videos

So someone gave me Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic as a gift. Got hooked really bad and played the PC role-playing game non-stop every chance I got. It's old but the engine still does the game justice:

I've since finished the game and I am currently in Star Wars gaming hell as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: Sith Lords (the sequel) isn't on Steam.

Now I've known some months back that Bioware has been developing Star Wars: The Old Republic, an MMORPG based on the franchise. I browsed YouTube and came upon the Star Wars: The Old Republic Timeline video series, a 13-part video collection that covers several important points in the history of the Old Republic --- even Malak's (before he joined the Sith) battles against the Mandalorians. Knights of the Old Republic fans will be amused to know that the series even mentions Carth Onasi, a major character in the first game.

Batman: Arkham Asylum PC Demo HD Playthrough (Complete)

I got curious about this game as it garnered "9.0+" ratings all over the Internet (not to mention the impending launch of Batman: Arkham City). I downloaded the demo and gave it a whirl. It's awesome. I've never played a game with gameplay mechanics like what this PC third-person (beat 'em up? Stealth game?) has.

It's hard to describe Batman: Arkham Asylum as it blurs, breaks, and melds the barriers of several genres.

The awesome, 1-part, 18-minute HD (high-definition) video game playthrough after the jump.
