Designed to be the ultimate competitive real-time strategy game, StarCraft II will feature the return of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg races, overhauled and re-imagined with Blizzard's signature approach to game balance.
Yeah woo Starcraft 2.... but what took them soo soo long to make another Starcraft game, seriously Diablo 2 and starcraft sold Millions, they could have atleast brought out more expansions or made more games in the many years that have passed since they were released. While it's great to see the series revived hopefully the time taken hasn't already done to much damage to the genre meaning that people are already tired of it.
They had no need to release more expansions for SC, WC or Diablo. World of Warcraft gave them all they needed.
Looks better but still feels to WarCraft 3-ish which happens to be a game that I was seriously disappointed. Hopefully the gameplay is intact and real StarCraft. And WTH is Zerg's blood green?!? WTF.
Losing their Original Starcraft fanbase.... I mean look at NeverWinterNights 2, they seriously updated their graphics and therefore screwing over their fanbase(that is made by people who have crappy computers and don't want to spend a crapload of $$$) Well, anyway. I like the zerg with greenblood :P makes them look more.... extratriestrial? w/e i dunno... and wait... On the second screen.........are those... tauren?(cow people)
I agree about the graphics and fanbase, but blizzard said the graphics would be scalable. Hopefully its enough for most people. Also, the "Tauren Marines" were an april fools joke. The gameplay videos they had up on the site showed them raping everything. I think it's safe to say they won't be in the actual game, ha.
Zerg blood is red. Baneling blood is green. StarCraft 2 very much retains the StarCraft feel. It in no way feels like WarCraft 3, which put emphasis on individual units. In StarCraft 2, your units feel like armies. @2.1 Those are Tauren Space Marines. They were Blizzard's 2008 StarCraft 2 April Fool's joke. They're going to be included in the editor.
Thanks TheIneffableBob for the help but I HATE green blood.
These aren't even close to new.... They've been on the SCII page since April 1st (or close). In fact, I've had the first one as my desktop background for about a month now.
Can't wait to play this on my PC :D This is one game i KNOW im getting for PC..... zerg ftw :) Toss too.....terrans....suck..
Hey now, I play as Terran! BTW I agreed to your statement about getting the game, not the one about Terrans sucking, lol.
But i just love the zerg...I hate zerg rushing thought >.> but i love how the zerg works Protoss too... didn't mean to offend you ^_^
but I do like what they will do to my activision shares.
looking damn good
