In what’s becoming an oddly real-time-strategy heavy day at RPS, GameTrailers have gone a little bit crazy over the only game that can truly be described as something compared to Starcraft 2; It’s Starcraft 2. They’ve posted three (count ’em!) videos about Starcraft 2. We said that before. Starcraft 2! Pay attention.
The first one’s a comparison between Starcraft (original) and the new game, with further ones beneath the cut talking about how they’ve evolved the Zerg so they can zerg in a truly early-21st century manner, and another about how they plan to live up to the pressure of knowing an entire Asian nation will descend en masse to their homes and eviscerate them if they fail.
First, recapturing the magic.
Thanks, Gametrailers! Again!
Secondly, putting the Zerg in their fancy pants.
A further Thanks, Gametrailers!
Actualy, I started playing Starcraft at the weekend (er) for the first time. It’s okayability is acceptable!
(There’s definitely an article we should do on RPS about our blindspots as Game writers. It’s kind of inevitable when games take as much time to play properly as they do.)
