PostSubject: StarCraft Topic   Fri Feb 26, 2010 1:55 am

This is the topic to discuss all things StarCraft.
What do you think of StarCraft? Excited for the sequels?
In case any of you don't know what StarCraft is, it's a Real-Time Strategy game for the PC.
Because I'm too lazy to tell you more, go to this URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StarCraft_(series)
(Sorry, I couldn't get the hyperlinks to work. Just copy the whole thing, not just the hyperlinked part.)

Off Topic: The link is working fine, no worries.

On Topic: Never quite so the appeal of these games. Hrm...

Anyone care to sales pitch?

I've heard of it before, and it sounds pretty good, but I hate downloading games.

I saw a banner for the new StarCraft at a game store, and it does look pretty cool!

I mean, it's not like I'm likely to get it anytime soon, but it does look good. :P

Are you saying it looks pretty cool just from you looking at the banner? :P
Not too much has changed since the previous one, besides much, much better graphics.

Yeah, I guess. :P I did read the description and liked it... though I've mostly forgotten it by now. Glare

But yes, the graphics are very good, even having nothing to compare them to (I don't think I ever saw the "old" StarCraft).

The old StarCraft is awesome. I still play it to this day. It's got excellent gameplay. The people online, however, are insanely good, so if you're a beginner, you're out of luck 'til you get better.
And you. Once again, I'm sorry I haven't been on in so long.

Yeah, some strategist I am, and if the people already on are that good... no such thing as beginner's luck. :P Maybe I'd better try the new one.

Yeah, they are really good. Some people who are good at SC I aren't as good at SC II though, because of the new units. But truly good players can adapt. Me not being one of them. :P
Haha I don't have too much of a life either.

Maybe I'd better get it before anyone gets good at it. Or not. :P

Sorry, but it's too late. There have been beta testers for maybe around six months, so those people are already insane. But I think there's something to do with beginners being grouped together added into this version of SC. I think they're having ranks or something to help people find hopefully similarly-skilled players so they don't get wiped out in the first three minutes of the game. :P
Thank you, if that was a compliment. :P

Well, that's not exactly lucky, but that might help... hopefully. :P

I need to read up about it. I'm not sure my computer will even handle it.

Hmmm. That could be a problem. Wikipedia says just that it's for "Windows"... I assume XP and more recent.

I was actually talking more about hardware. The Wikipedia article actually has a pretty extensive system requirements list in the way of hardware. Here's part of it:
System requirements

Microsoft Windows

* 2.6 GHz Pentium IV or equivalent AMD Athlon processor
* 1 GB RAM (1.5 GB required for Windows Vista/Windows 7 users)
* 12 GB hard disk space
* 128 MB NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT or ATI Radeon 9800 PRO video card or better
* Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7 (With the latest Service Packs) and DirectX 9.0c.
Now that I look at it, it appears I am okay except for the video card. The rest I barely meet the requirements. :P

Yeah, I don't have a video card either. As for the rest, I have no clue and am too lazy to check. :P

I'm sure you have some video card. But the question is if it's good enough.
