Thanks, hadn't scene that video before. Looks amazing, can't wait. Been playing Brood wars the last few days myself. Turns out I had never finished the Zerg campaign.

Those supply depots are so cool. Blizzard one-upped the strategy, bravo.

Exaggerating? I don't think your giving it enough praise! This game will be the best game ever created!

Looks like any other RTS to me. What's the big deal? :confused:

I've never played the first one, so maybe that's why I don't get it. What makes it special?

No it will just be a remake of Starcraft with the WC3 engine, it isn't going to change anything or re-revolutionize a thing.

i honestly don't expect it to revolutionize the RTS by ANY means. i expect it to be an evolution and refinement of the best RTS ever made. in short, don't fix what isn't broken:thumbsup:

I'm another person that doesn't really enjoy RTS games. I think for a game to be considered the best game of the century (considering we're 8 years into it) it would have to be something more like playing madden as if I were teleported into the game and actually playing on the field. The players wouldn't be holograms, but feel/look/touch like real players. When a LB tackles you, you feel it but don't break bones. :) Now THAT would be the game of the century.

One my main concerns is Blizzard dumbing down the game's characters and storyline for the console kiddies.

where was it said that it would be ported to consoles?

SC64 was a failure, IIRC. not to mention the entire game would have to be reworked for consoles.

Why are people even worrying about what Blizzard is going to do with this game? If it's just a more detailed Starcraft with some new strategies and campaigns then tada! It will be great! If you liked Starcraft, why worry so much? Blizzard doesn't skimp on polishing their games...

No. It should be obvious to anyone with half a brain who has actually watched the gameplay videos that it's not the WC3 engine. It looks infinitely better than WC3.

Starcraft is Blizzard's best game and was my personal favorite for many years, but I'm not setting my hopes too high. Diablo 2 was a step down from Diablo, Warcraft 3 was several steps down from Warcraft 2, and World of Warcraft is a game I will never play. A good portion of the original Starcraft team is no longer a part of Blizzard and if they rape this like they raped their other two franchises, they can go and make console-oriented garbage like Bungie now is for all I care. If they do manage to keep the elements that made Starcraft great (loud music, gore, a Battle.Net that doesn't suck, and humor without falling into a pit of cornball) then it'll be the first thing they've done right in over ten years.

Well, as cool as that sound...

...I certainly hope the first game that enables me to do all you described is not an EA game.

:p

I'm pretty sure you're incorrect.

It's based on the Havok engine. The physics part though.



And it's not SC with war3 graphics. I saw the demo and played the multiplayer demo at blizzcon last weekend. It is NOTHING near war3 and I've played war3 and Frozen throne since beta.

WTF It is not the war3 engine....it has been in development for around 4 years and is based on Direct X 10.

EDIT: From the SC2 FAQ

Will StarCraft II take advantage of DirectX 10? What other graphical goodies are included?

The game will be compatible with DirectX 10, and we're still considering whether there will be exclusive DirectX 10 graphic effects, but the graphics engine will also be very scalable to ensure that a wide range of different systems will be capable of running StarCraft II. The new engine is also capable of rendering very large units, as well as large numbers of units on screen together. Havok physics have been integrated into the engine for added realism as well.
