While I love the game and I love Blizzard (though I wish to God that they'd get some project management skills - 12 years for a sequel? Seriously?!?)

For Fuck's Sake, not this again. The RTS team made Warcraft 3 and The Frozen Throne.

haven't finished playing the game, but so far i'm fairly disappointed in the frequencey of the full quality cgi scenes. it seems for the meat of the story they put together an engine which they could just input some simpletext dialogue and ran the puppets through a lip syncing system. very un-natural looking, and while acceptable for a game like mass effect it's quite cheap looking when stacked against the achievements of the original sc and sc:bw in terms of story telling and art quality.

Are you serious? You're calling SC1's talking head's and scrolling text an achievement for that time? Especially when Westwood already had full live action cutscenes?

Too many people look at SC1's campaign through rose colored glasses. It was nothing special.

Congratulations on buying 1/3 of a game. Feel free to argue this with your "But there is close to 30 missions" arguements all you want. It doesn't contain all 3 races campaigns like the original did, so it will always be 1/3 of a game to me. Won't pay for that. I'm offended enough by all the inadequate DLC companies are already getting people to pay for, and the inadequate sequels like Modern Warfare 2 that middle america is willing to shell out for at the drop of the name. I miss the days of quality over quantity and money grubbing. Blizzard used to be a company I respected, now they're just another money scheming company under the umbrella that is Activision.

This "1/3" of a game's single player blows the original SC's campaign out of the water. Your loss for not playing a great game because of your own stupidity.

Its a quality game, but not a quality story ;p

And a bad story alone is enough to give a game a C+? Giving the single player a C+ is pure bullshit, considering everything about it - the mission design, the between mission hub, the unique units and upgrades, the mercenaries - makes it leagues better than the original Starcraft.

How does it NOT progress SC canon, given what happens in the end and all the revelations?

So Raynor was an outlaw before he was a hero. Big deal. Not inconsistent with SC1 at all.

Mensk was a genius strategist - he wounldn't give press conferences: That was 4 years ago. He's now the emperor of his own dominion. Who says the emperor won't try to communicate with his subjects?

20 of the 26 missions have nothing to do with the story: WTF are you talking about? Those missions tell their own story. Just because you don't care about anything besides the returning Brood War characters doesn't mean there's no story there.

Yeah the overall story is nothing special, but neither was SC1's. The only thing special about Starcraft 1 was its multiplayer. Starcraft 2 absolutely dominates Starcraft 1's mediocre singleplayer.

Partly OFF TOPIC:

Will Starcraft 2 be enjoyably playable on MEDIUM graphics setting on my system?

AMD dual-core 2.4 GHz
3 Gigs RAM
nVidia GeForce 250 1GB video
WinXP SP3

Thank you!

You'll be able to run it on high/very high at least. I'm playing on a 2 year old rig, w/ a radeon 4850, 4 gigs of ram, and a core 2 duo 8500. Only when I set everything on max do large battles get choppy. getting a solid ~50fps on high.

Truer words have not been spoken. For the sake of argument alone it's absolutely fantastic us PC gamers have this big ass axe in our hands called Blizzard (Starcraft II in particular at this moment).

If Blizzard is the bulwark behind the future of PC gaming, I for one welcome our new console overlords. Just haven't really gotten into a Blizzard game in over a decade (Warcraft II, although I dappled in Diablo II for a while).

If you serious would rather play console games than Blizzard games, you can't call yourself a pc gamer in the first place.

Wait....there are no MP replays in SC2? That's a typo...right? I assumed the replays would be easier than ever to share and view now...no?

Yeah, that's a typo. And so is the no chatrooms (not ready at launch), privacy, and tournament support. Pretty much 1/2 of it is wrong.

Also, nice to see you finally stop bitching and actually play the game for once.

I bought one third of a rehashed game for sixty bucks, is this the thread where I defend my purchase?

Why did you buy it? What don't you like about it?

He didn't buy it. It's obvious he knows jack shit about the game.

Got an email Tumbler? Theboxed game comes with a few. More than happy to share.

He's probably going to play a few missions just to come back and complain harder about how Blizzard is ripping people off.

I am not paying for a game I have to buy 3 installments of.

End of story

Besides...been here done that....bring on Diablo 3

See previous discussions (Post #49) on why Starcraft 2 having expansions is not a bad thing, considering all of Blizzard's games have expansions.

Multiplayer is where it's at, I don't see much wrong with pirating it just to play the single player campaign to be honest. If you buy the game just to play the single player campiagn then you really do not get your moneys worth.

I definitely bought the game for the MP, but I'm loving the new single player additions. The in between mission story mode makes the campaign much more than just a series of maps strung together, and the overpowered single player only units are quite fun. The new mission mechanics are fun too, and adds variety to the build units -> destroy enemy base formula.

All told, i'm finding the sp to be much more engaging than SC1's, and it's definitely worth it on its own.

Also, I don't think the game's been cracked yet, which is great because fuck the pirates.

As an older gamer I am a bit disappointed that they have kept the measure of skill based almost solely on APM still, I thought we were moving past that in the RTS genre

There's far more to Starcraft than just APM. APM is like physical fitness when you're playing a sport: it lets you carry out your strategy. Any RTS game benefits from higher APM, but higher APM by itself means nothing.

FUCK YOU SUCKAS!!!!!

LOL, I was just wondering when someone was going to mention this type of thing. I was starting to think that this game was somehow immune to piracy.

Lol, I think someone is going to be a bit disappointed.

A traditional RPG where you play an Inquisitor like Eisenhorn. Gather companions, buy equipment, travel across exotic worlds, trying to get to the bottom of a mysterious cultist plot threatening the imperium of man.

Someone's been playing Dark Heresy?

I'd LOVE dark heresy, except that I've come to the conclusion that their mechanics system is f*cking broken beyond belief.

Ah, that sounds awesome. Too bad I never had any friends who were into PnP.... CRPGs only for me

You know what I'd love to see?

Always wanted to see depictions of society and life in the dystopian 40k universe instead of just focusing on epic battles and campaigns.

Um... when did Blizzard ever say that the 2nd (Zerg) and 3rd (Protoss) games were expansions?

Since about 2 years ago, shortly after they were announced. And also on their website, which I quoted in a prev post.

I guess I missed the announcement of brood war when they announced Starcraft. And the announcements of Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm and whatever else they've been planning all along for World of Warcraft. Or maybe they never announced those because they were focused on making the best product they could instead of the most profitable way to sell it...

So, it is wrong now to announce how many expansions there's going to be ahead of time? And infinite WOW expansions is so much better than 2 Starcraft expansions. And you totally know that the quality of the Starcraft expansions will be compromised because they were announced ahead of time.

Dang, George Lucas and Peter Jackson must have been focusing on the most profitable way to sell their trilogies, instead of making good movies.
