Stronghold Crusader 2 is poorly optimized. The game looks bad and moves bad for its graphics.
Here are some tweaks/settings that allows you to have a decent framerate.

Vertical Sync: off.

The full version
Both games are available on Steam since 21 October 2013.
Prices: Stronghold HD 1 is 4 euro while Crusader HD is 8 euro. Find the games here.
The idea is that the fans can have the games in their Steam library. Until now, to play the HD versions of the games, a patch was required to be applied over the original games. We gave some instructions in an old article. No more troubles
Firefly Studios is currently developing Stronghold Crusader 2. There is even a possible release date and that is March 2014.
What we know so far about the game:
– it’s trying to use the old-school mechanics and gameplay from Stronghold 1 and Stronghold Crusader 1.
– free 3D camera (no details if there will be a fixed camera option).
The population limit has been increased to 500 (this is the only gameplay change).
The menus are looking better now.
The most important change and why the game is called “HD” is because the game will start in your monitor’s native resolution. There are two cheats to set the resolution to 1024 x 768 and 800 x 600. Check them here.

What we know so far?
Heart of the Swarm was released after three years since the release of the first game, Wings of Liberty. Blizzard was announcing in 2010 that HoS will be released in 2011 but they delayed for 2013.
Legacy of the Void could lack any new units for multiplayer games and Blizzard can focus only on the campaign. That means that they will need less time to finish
The short answer is no, you can’t play the Heart of the Swarm campaign by using the Starcraft 2 starter edition.
What exactly can you do with the starter edition?
– You can play the first 5 terrain campaign missions.
– You can check how the SC 2 interface works and looks, join the available chat rooms. You can only read the chat, you cannot post
I just finished Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm and I was a bit disappointed by some aspects of the game.
First of all, the missions are a bit boring and playing like 3-4 at once will get boring. Also, you are interrupted by having to talk with every npc from your ship. Do some side missions that are just interrupting the story.
There are too many units. I’ve finished the
