Video Games: Blizzard Announces StarCraft 2

May 19, 2007

Oh yeah… StarCraft was one of my favorite computer games ever, and Blizzard is going to take another stab at it. This should rock. Zerg, Protoss, carriers, the whole nine yards. Here’s a post with some juicy screen shots of the alien on alien action.

There are also some videos of the gameplay, which I’m trying to download, but I think the servers are kinda slow.

Depending on how detailed you want to get, there’s also a list of all the new units for each of the races (Zerg, Protoss, and humans).

I used to play as the Protoss and the Zerg, and it looks the Protoss has the most new units – something called the Colossus which is described as similar to a tripod from War of the Worlds. There are some new flying units, including a Mothership which sounds even more powerful than the carriers.

Anyhow this sounds freaking awesome. I just hope the computer requirements aren’t insane where I have to upgrade just to play…

    I just saw the preview trailer and gameplay videos. It looks awesome. A group of Zealots slaughter marines, who are then wiped out by siege tanks, that are eaten up by protoss immortals, who gets beaten up by some marines with jumpacks which are then defeated by Protoss Stalkers. Really cool.
