Mammoth StarCraft II patch in the wild

Blizzard's version 1.2 StarCraft II patch updates the sci-fi real-time strategy and e-sports game

From Battle.net chat channels to master leagues, stalemate detection, and a new 'extreme' graphics option, the latest StarCraft II patch is here and it's a doozy.

Blizzard released the roughly 80 MB patch last night, tweaking delicate variables like race balance, retooling the StarCraft II Editor, and tossing in a bunch of bug fixes for good measure.

So long 'blocking ramps with 2x2 buildings', it was nice knowing ya.

Other notable updates include customizable hotkey support, ability and upgrade information now displayed in a unit's help dialog, several organizational improvements to the match playback feature, system alerts moved to the top of the screen, and, finally, a way to quickly see how many harvesters are sapping a Vespene geyser: Click on a geyser and the game now displays the number.

You can scan the full list of changes here.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
