Zerg Rush Onto Eurogamer

As in, Eurogamer have just posted my hands-on preview of my time in the Starcraft 2 beta to date. In that piece, I'm two days on from the stuff we were talking about in the chat-o-fight here earlier this week, so I've gotten to grips with the game a fair bit more, even if I'm still pretty rubbish. I sure have spent a lot of time comparing build queues post-match, though. The preview? Oh, it's here, and it includes things like this:

I could see exactly what I had to do, the sustained clicking and planning, and how quickly I'd need to do it. It was eminently possible. But I lacked the will. I was weak, I was feeble, and I succumbed to the tiredness I felt when I thought about the physical and mental exertion involved. It was the point where your legs start to burn when you're out jogging; do you listen to the invisible PE teacher screaming at you in your head and push on, or do you give up and go buy some Monster Munch and a Fanta from the corner shop?
