I would like to give a big thanks to everyone who participated in this Contest, Bounds were my absolute favorite type of map during the old SC1 days. Checking out a lot of these entries really brought back some old memories (especially Level Up Bound, man I miss that map). I'm kind of inspired to go recreate one of my old bounds now... Anyway, thanks to everyone who participated, and congratulations to our top 3: progammer, Xen10, and Introversity, with D1000 coming in a close 4th! Stay tuned for the next contest, should be coming around pretty shortly, ;).

New Gameplay Videos by Blizzard
A new gameplay video was released by Blizzard featuring the sexy adjutant's voice. Watch it to see how gorgeous the game looks on ultra or trying to learn some cinematic experiences.
Maze Generator by Nexius22
Not only good for games, the galaxy language for SC2 is very capable of solving complex math problems. In this map, Nexius22 used a Depth-first search algorithm to generate a random maze.

Next round of featured maps is live on US. Both of them are fun minigames.
Banelings by HuskyStarcraft
You probably have seen this video, HuskyStarcraft's latest music parody of Justin Bieber's Baby has gone viral for the last 2 days. Enjoy the catchy tunes.
Banelings Fluid by progammer
Following the banelings trend, I have made some experiments with SC2's pathing and collision system to come up with this fluid simulation of banelings. Imagine what it would be like to bath in banelings :) (SC2's pathing system is probably the best system in gaming to date)

Dialog Designer by Doubotis
If you have ever step into designing a custom UI for your maps like I did, you probably have been frustrated by the lack of immediate results and have to test the map anytime you make minuscule changes. Dialog Designer is a map created for that sole purpose. By running the map you can create dialog, button, image, color or resize them and be able to retrieve the end results for your map via bank file. Even texture of the dialog can be changed and take effect in real time.
Another bonus: The map is available in both English and French, what more can you expect?
