A lot of StarCraft II news for one week. Not only did fans notice the Battle.net support site sneakily open, but now also new graphics from the game engine.
when i see those containers i see Xel'naga!
Yeah.. Or perhaps humans trying to recreate the Xelnaga?
that would be rather interesting humans trying to recreate xel'naga.
The "Hybrids" are not exactly that. They are more the goal of what the Xelnaga tried to make originally.

What a masive improvement over the first game!
One would hope some 11+ years would have some effect :P
yeah i'd say so. I just hope my old computer can even start the game up with the detail they have put into this game so far.
Bought new gaming gear ages ago. Just hope it's still "new" by the time the bloody game is released!
My toaster can run Blizzard games
looks cool, but is that it!?

Basically, it's stasis containers. In SC1 these were used to make a "hybrid" between Protoss and Zerg. Something that "Duran" fella seems to be involved in. He must have been on something mightily powerful to resist Kerrigan's lure. All very interesting, regardless!
Interested to see where this goes, plot-wise. Brood War left plenty of stuff unexplained and even with a few tantalising hints in the last few missions, and with the way Blizzard tell their stories, I'm looking forward to going through this and seeing what it's all about.
Definitely a lot more detail, not only in terms of the debris, but also the terrain. Blizzard is very well aware of the graphical standard they have to reach this year. Games such as SupCom 2 and C&C4 easily surpass the game in terms of graphics. On the other hand, SCII will have great system requirements this way, which is one of the most important things these days.
Isn't there a risk it will look pretty dated by the time it (eventually) comes out? I'm not sure they've struck the right visual balance yet.
Well, during development Blizzard continues to refine their games in terms of graphical quality. Just look at the way the game looked when it was announced and how it looks right now. Same goes for Diablo III. I wouldn't worry about an outdated look at all, the scale of the battles and the amazing details are enough to look forward to. =)
Stasis Pods... <3 PERFECT for future plans with SCII Cinematic creation, this is EXCELLENT!
There's a Blizzard Russia?
Sarcasm? If not, then yeah there is. Hell Russia just got WoW a year or so ago.
