Valentine’s Day for Gamers

13 02 2009

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! Why not mix it up with gaming?

Blizzard created some wallpapers for the day based on the Zerg, Protoss, and Terran of StarCraft fame. You can get them at the wallpaper page of All three feature a witty line and symbolic construction related to the game. Check out the Terran one for example, which features what looks like a Terran construction in the shape of a heart and the line “Hell, it’s about Valentine”. Read the rest for more on Valentine’s Day and gaming.

Terran Valentine

The line seems to refer to the video Blizzard introduced StarCraft 2 to the world with at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational in Seoul back in 2007. At the end of the video, which can be seen here, the marine says (When translated) “Hell, it’s about time”.

Another notable participator is Scott Ramsoomair of, who near Valentine’s Day posts new Video Game themed Valentine’s Day cards for users to download, although as of this posting has not updated the cards for this year, so here is a link to last years. Here is a sample of one of his Valentine’s Day cards referencing the Nintendo game Pokémon. The card references the information you receive when you catch a Pokémon.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
