Re: StarCraft 2: More info
I wonder if you drop drop pods on zerglings, will the 'lings get squished? Or will the pods just land around them ?

They would land around, most probably.

Also, I think they've pulled drop pods, and a lot of other stuff (including most Mothership abilities, the Terran Predator fighter, the Medic...) And the Thor is now a mobile anti-air unit.

I kinda wish they'd have kept some of that stuff.

They can't lose the medic :( she sounded so cute in brood war.
Unless they're already planning the starcraft 2 add-on contents and want to save it. ;D

Re: StarCraft 2: More info
ive been keeping a close eye on sc2 since mid december, i like what i see so far. i hope it's just as good as the original. i have seen some footage from the e3 part on sc2 from on google about a month back.

im just wondering where that zerg/protoss hybrid is that zeratul found it on that moon... and if samir duran is still around.

Medic has been replaced with the Medevac Dropship.

And, yes, the plot seems to deal with the Protoss/Zerg Hybrids and the return of the Xel'Naga, who Duran probably works for.

Re: StarCraft 2: More info
we all know what happened to the xel'naga after their experiments rebelled. i wonder how the xel'naga will take to their experiements taking to the galaxy trying to destroy each? :D. the zergs only interest is to absorb the protoss and the protoss' only concern is to destroy the zerg.

the humans on the other hand are originally descendants of thugs and hooligans sent to a distant world, however theirs ships had faulty tech which landed them in hot water with the zerg and eventually the protoss after 300 year colonization.

Incidentally the xel'naga's experiments on a larva zerg and a primitive protoss yielded the races which seek perfection, on the other hand the humans didn't want perfection just another war of launching nukes at each other :lol:

Re: StarCraft 2: More info
Hybrids. . . .when did this happen?
Did Blizzard release another expansion that didn't make it to the UK?

Secret mission in Brood War. Finish Zerg Mission 9, IIRC, with 15minutes left on the clock to unlock it.

I don't use that. It cuts out fun in-mission story bits like Kerrigan getting nicked. :lol:

Re: StarCraft 2: More info
ahh there is none of that, she is really on fire! using and subverting people, i love the character she portrays from an innocent 26 year old psychic woman before Minsk turned on her and left her to the rampaging zerg units. boy was Raynor bitter at leaving kerrigan behind and really had it in for Minsk because he had a crush on her. lol ironically she turned the opposite of what Raynor liked about her and used the weakness Raynor has to gain the zerg hive mind and also kills Raynors friend Phoenix in the process!.

Artanis is probably the luckiest character in SC1 to date.  He gets promoted to Prelate at the age of 260 years, the youngest ever prelate in Protoss history and gets to leadership of the Protoss forces and whatever is left of their people, not only that but he hasn't been subverted by Kerrigan yet. i wonder if that will change..

Re: StarCraft 2: More info
Just saw the mission in brood war. Turns out i've already played it. Just didn't remember :)

 
Re: StarCraft 2: More info
I was extremely disappointed when Blizzard announced the game they were making after Warcraft 3 was WoW, because that meant the cliffhanger ending of Brood Wars was going to stand for even longer.  So I thought I'd be ecstatic when I finally saw Starcraft 2 announced.  Except I'm not, since Starcraft came out a decade ago and now I've played Dawn of War.  I'll doubtless still play the game when it's released, but I'm finding I just can't muster up the appropriate level of excitement for the sequel.

Dawn of War 2 on the other hand has me literally cursing the future for withholding it.  So excited!

Re: StarCraft 2: More info
what made me play sc1 was the easy going music, the randomness and the simplicity of such a game. unlike you find today like freespace which has been modded like crazy along with more complex coding and so on.
