In case anyone is interested I came across a Youtube video showing off Starcraft 2. You can see it here. Maybe old news, it was posted on the 12th I think...

Looks new to me, I haven't seen that. Man I can't wait for SC2! Hopefully it won't require a mega machine to run it . . .

I don't see what the big deal is. Looks like it has almost no innovation over Starcraft, besides being prettier.

I never even played SC 1

Why is it so ranted and raved over?
I dont see how amazing it is

Supreme Commander looks 10x as good as this. I hope they up the visuals some before they release it.

and if it's not fun, I definitely won't get it. If it is fun, though, I will get it more than likely.

SC is not even close to the same game. Imo, SC sucks is overrated, bland, slow and boring. As for Starcraft popularity. It sold like 10 million copies and in Asian countries has been a huge success it even has TV shows and major huge Tournaments even still! I liked it because it was unique and was fun to play. If it weren't for the lousy resolution I'd still play it. It's also rated one of the best games of all time. I don't know if I'd go that far, but it is what it is.

I thought that it was a video of Warcraft II.

Supreme Commande

That game lacks the 'touch' of Blizzard ><. There support for the games they create is something rare to find, and thats why Blizzard games have always been top @ what they do.:captnkill:

Main reason why SC is so popular is because of how Blizzard still supports the game, ontop of that in Asian country's its almost like a religion.

That Twilight Archon reminds me a lot of the green thing in Warcraft 3 Lol I dunno you guys who say it looks just like SC are right, but thats not what SC was about. It was about the gameplay, but in no way does it look like SC 2 will revolutionize anything like Supreme Commander did.

Starcraft is the first RTS I've ever played and I still play it on and off every once in a while. Even with the same style of gameplay, it's still going to be a great game . . . not to mention great graphics from the looks of things.

Starcraft is the first RTS with sides who have non-identical units. And I mean all of them are non-identical, from the very bottom of the tech tree to the very top. Even the resource gathering units are also different.

The thing with Starcraft is that you can't just build into any given tech tree and be able to defend against practically anything, and having large amounts of the most powerful units does not guarantee victory, as somebody can take that out with relatively low tech/low power units if they play their cards right. Because of the many different gameplay mechanics involved, there are several ways to play the game, all without the requirement of setting different rules before the game starts.

This is why Starcraft is so popular, and thus far no other RTS has ever lived up to Starcraft. Not even WC3, which has strictly small army sizes, gay upkeep system, random map favors, etc, that many people don't like.

I totally agree with you. I was talking about the visuals though. Supreme Commander has SC2 beat by a long shot visually. In terms of support though. I've never had a problem with any of Blizzard's games, but I'm still pissed at the fact that GPGnet won't load on my Gaming Computer. :( It's so freakin annoying because I can't play online games on anything but my old gamer.

Graphics sucks
I hate games with cartoon graphics

Starcraft 2 looks like a Warcraft 3 mod and not a new game

I don't see why have outstanding graphics for boring gameplays, like most of the FPS out there. SC1 is funny until now. Too bad it runs only on 640x480, which in this point I agree that kills the game, specially on our big monitors. In my opinion it is the best multiplayer game I've ever seen.
I used to turn nights playing this game in lan parties with my friends. But, everyone have the rights to have their own opinons about everything.

I think that is a matter of opinion. All the SupremeCommander 2 maps are bland as hell and 3/4 of the game you play zoomed out so you can see what the hell is going on.

yea i dont like the graphics of supreme commander that much, and some of the units are just plain boring. Its just a matter of taste, but I like the look of SC2 better, the units are more interesting looking and the detail of the land is a lot better looking as well. C&C3 maps look better then supreme to me.

Just found these videos . . . It's an ingame demo showing different new abilities. Pretty freaking sweet, but like the guy in the video says, nothing is final.

I finally gave the Starcraft demo a try yesterday. I'm surprised at how smooth and detailed everything is. It also has a lot of nifty little features that other games (specifically, C&C) didn't pick up for a few more years.

I can see why its been so popular over the years.

Better late than never I guess. :D

You should pick up the BattleChest for $20, definitly worth it. I started playing through the game again and I'm trying to remember all the different strategies and whatnot. Pretty fun stuff.

Say CaptNKILL, if you get it and wanna play online, let me know . . . :firedevil
