Thurosis

Hey everyone did anyone notice this already?

check it up !

http://eu.starcraft2.com/

esspecially those videos ! It's AMZAZING!!!

After i watched those trailers , i got the feeling that they have the chance to beat Dawn of War (the current one)!

(But i don't feel happy because they stole something from Warhammer 40k. again -.-")

But it won't change my opinion to StarCraft 2 because i 'm a StarCraft fan

are you kidding me?  Have you watched the gameplay footage?  its the same old crap, newer graphics.  It looks and plays pretty much just like the old starcraft.  so far, it fails at life.

That's exactly why it WINS: it retains all the things that made Starcraft one of the best RTS ever (If no the GREATEST), and yet introduces new units that will surely change all the tactics used so far in Starcraft.
What made the original game so great it's the fact that it's simple and yet leaves room for complex strategies.
There's not much room for change. If it isn't broken, then don't change it.

But then, It's all subjective

To avoid posting in the other thread:
QuoteI hope to GOD that they fixed the old issues of spending ungodly amounts of time collecting resorces, and the whole producing one bloody marine at a time and having each marine function by itself, and just trying to send a squad worth of them anywhere becomes unweildy and so unuseful most people stop using them.

Well...bring a force of mostly marines, a few meds an a couple of tanks for long range support, and you can defeat a player using the top units in the tech tree. But yeah, most people usually stop using them in the later stages of the game -__-


...
Also, the gameplay footage it's AWESOME.

CaptBrenden

Oy, rabid fans, cant argue with them -_-

Starcraft was good back in the day, but it is as out dated as doom is.  I will still stand by how doom was one of the greatest FPS ever created, hell its the one that made them popular (much as starcraft did for RTS) However, even as a rabid fan of Doom, if someone polished up the original game with nothing new or interesting (exept a few new monsters or guns) then I would have said it failed as well.  

If you want a trip down memory lane, just plug in your old starcraft CDS.  A new game, especaly one with this much damn hype, should have inovations and improvements on the game play, not simply new bells and whistles.    

adding new units and a new army is a freaking expansion pack, its not a new game.

oh man ... -.- don't be so negative Capt.Brenden (i don't mean it bad/worse or something like that!!!)

it is just a demo (trailer) that they show us...
so many changes can made until the release date... (i hope sp at least)

as i said before i'm more interested in the story campaign ^^"
and i also agree to Darknight_88 because why should they make a completly new one when the the orginal one was superb?

But as i said before again the only thing what i don't like is that they stole the storm marines from Warhammer40k. !!!

Well, who knows what they'll add in the time that's left until release. Maybe they'll probably add new features. But they can't make a lot of RADICAL changes, like removing mining and concentrating in just battles. Just imagine: Someone is developing a Warhammer: Mark of Chaos expansion and suddenly thinks "hey guyz! why don't we try something new? like mixing this game with features of...SimCity!" You would not like, right? even when they'd be doing something new (mixing a war game with a City-building game).

Any way, propose things that you'd like to see changed and then we would know what exactly you're talking about.

But still, It's just subjective

Many people still do that.
