StarCraft 2 Patch Adds New Co-Op Commander

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void patch 3.3 adds Zerg gene sequencer Abathur as a co-op commander. Abathur became available in the co-op mode—which allows players to control hero commanders in an accessible multiplayer arena—yesterday. Although patch 3.3 is free, Abathur costs $5 USD to unlock. The new co-op commander gives players a Zerg option that doesn’t “rely on a hero unit being on the battlefield.” Abathur is not controllable in the field as a hero; instead, he uses his evolutionary mechanics to mutate and command his army. Additionally, Blizzard added new content to its co-op missions. Gameplay modifiers called mutators are intended to add fresh challenges to each mission. Mutations will update weekly.

The Path: "A Room of One's Own" Review

The Path: "A Room of One's Own" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below. It was certainly interesting, in The Path’s penultimate Season 1 episode, to see Eddie move further away from the movement while Alison wound up despondently returning to the fold by the end. After having read her late husband’s journal and apparently peering into the mind of a true believer who may have died after burning his hands on a mystical ladder in the sky. At least according to the odd Peruvian autopsy report Abe got to read. So here entered a teensy bit of the supernatural right at the end of the season. Nothing mind-blowing, but enough to place a faded question mark on a few issues. We’ve gotten so caught up in a possible murder, an actual murder, and Cal himself being a narcissistic fraud that the idea that there could be some type of truth behind Meyerism never crossed out minds.
