In 1994,the company briefly changed its name to Chaos Studios, before finally settling on Blizzard Entertainment after it was discovered that another company with the Chaos name already existed.

In 1997, Blizzard launched their online gaming service Battle.net
In 2002, Blizzard announced World of Warcraft
In 2008, Blizzard was honored at the 59th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards for the creation of World of Warcraft.
Currently, Blizzard has three main franchises in the gaming industry: Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft. StarCraft series Diablo WarCraft World of WarCraft Gaming Culture Casual vs Competitive The competitive realm has crews, or named groups such as New Jersey’s SSBB “Leap of Faith” or Europe’s “Storm Armada.”
Casual gamers are usually not very good at the game and call certain tactics used competitively cheap, such as chain grabbing or cheese rushing.
Casual gamers usually don’t notice the best characters in the game simply because they don’t know how to use them. Or they think a bad character is too good because a competitive gamer can completely dominate them with it.
Casual gamers play the game for fun and have a carefree attitude whether it comes to winning.They simply play for enjoyment and to laugh at others as they beat them.
Competitive gamers have the mindset of a winner and will dedicate time and money into improving their gameplay.
-They will buy controllers and any other necessities that will allow them to perform at the top level.
-The game is not about having fun anymore. it's about destroying the opponent and taking home the prize.
-Losing is never and option and is always taken with huge disappointment. Mobile Games The Beginning... Roles of Video Game Development Mobile Games *Producer

compete with our KaKao Talk friends •Female gamers usually tend to be less skilled as male gamers
•They are always sought after, but looked down upon in terms of skill.
•Girl gamers tend to play the more “girly” characters i.e. Talim in Soul Calibur or Peach in Super Smash Bros. •They tend to be more competitive and better at fighting games rather than strategy or shooters.
•Some girls pretend to be gamers to attract guys when in fact they only play the Sims or flash games. •Psychologically, girls are not as spatial as males when it comes to video games, due to the fact we are not ones to associate themselves typically with video games. Girls still can get to the same level as guys though, it just takes a little bit more work. StarCraft has been praised as one of the best and most important video games of all time.
It has been also praised for its unique faction design in real-time strategy gameplay and for a compelling story.
StarCraft's multiplayer is particularly popular in South Korea, where players and teams participate in professional competitions, earn sponsorships, and compete in televised tournaments. Video of Anipang KakaoTalk Games Blizzard Entertainment began development on StarCraft in 1995, shortly after the release of highly successful Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness.
Game engine was based on Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness
It supports Multiplaye mechanism through Blizzard Entertainment's Battle. net internet services.
A maximum of eight players can compete in variety of game modes, including simply destroying all other players on a level (which may be competitive, as in Ladder play, or non-ranked, as in melee play), to king of the hill and capture the flag objective-based games.
On 07/27/2010, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty was released, based on a whole new game engine. Gaming Cultures Worldwide Certain countries are best at certain types of games like: Japan at fighters, Korea at StarCraft, Europe in shooters, and America at a variety (usually ties with Japan in certain games).
In Japan, they do not play for money, they play for honor and respect.
In America there is separation among coasts: West coast vs East coast.
Most inter/national gaming tournaments have “Crew Battles” where teams are played against each other in a 1v1 trample to see which side wins. At Apex 2013 in New Jersey, there were USA vs the World Crew Battles for both Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl. Anipang USA's Shaky beating Japan's Abadango at Apex 2013 in Super Smash Bros.

About Playstation
Events Teldtar Arcade 1977 Nintendo: NES 1983 Sega: SG-1000 1983 Atari 7800, 1986 Microsoft unveiled a brand new Xbox 360 design at E3 2010. Created with Kinect compatibility in mind, the refreshed console includes a dedicated port for the motion accessory and does not require the use of an additional power supply as older versions do. The Xbox 360 S features built-in Wireless N networking and also expands the number of USB ports by two, bringing the total to five. Finally, the physical power and eject buttons were replaced by touch-sensitive versions. In August 2011, Microsoft announced the glossy finish would be discontinued in favor of the matte appearance first seen on the 4GB model. Nintendo: SNES 1990 Sega: Genesis 1988 Neo Geo: AES 1990 To the casual observer, there's nothing particularly slim about the Sony PlayStation 3's ($249 list) sleek black housing. It's only when you compare it with its half-decade-old-old counterpart, the first PS3, that you see how much smaller it is. The original PS3 retailed for $600 when it launched in 2006, but now $249 will get you a game system with a 160 GB hard drive and a great Blu-ray player, at the expense of backwards compatibility and the ability to install a different OS onto the system.

Much of the hardware is unchanged—the device still features a 3.2-GHz cell processor (though sized down from 65nm to 45nm), 550-GHz nVidia graphics, and the RSX Reality Synthesizer GPU—but Sony completely redesigned the power supply unit and cooling mechanism, resulting in a more efficient PS3 that runs cooler. With the original PS3, Sony found the right combination of hardware for outstanding gameplay, so it makes more sense to refine the current technology than to start from scratch with entirely new components. Although there's more to the new PS3 than just a slimmer design and a lower price, there is little reason for current PS3 owners to upgrade. (1999–2005) Nintendo is stepping into the next generation of game systems, which is a cross between the current gen and a concept we've never seen before. The Nintendo Wii U is the company's first high-definition game system, and its graphical power rivals the Xbox 360 $299.99 at Microsoft Store and the PlayStation 3 $269.96 at Amazon. But its best feature isn't the ability to compare favorably to 7- and 6-year-old game consoles. Its big selling point is a huge, tablet-like controller that combines the motion controls of the Wii, the physical controls of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and the touch screen of the Nintendo 3DS $169.97 at P.C. Richard & Son. This gamepad signals not only a step in Nintendo's console evolution, but a curious and bold twist on gaming conventions. The Wii U is bursting with potential, but it will take some time before we'll know if that potential will be fulfilled.
