Default Starcraft Remastered

If there is anyone else out there still playing the original Starcraft, they are re-releasing it with updated graphics and compatibility. No changes to the game engine. Looks great!

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

I played a crap ton of Starcraft back in the day. But I've been done with that game for well over a decade. Can't say fancier graphics are going to lure me back in.

Loved Starcraft. Sadly never got around to playing the second one. I'd give a remastered original a try, for sure

If it's cheap I'll try it, otherwise I've been itching to play the regular, so I'll d/l the free version and try out my skills.

Time to knock the dust off the ol' Zergling rush playbook.

Downloaded it. Played as Terran and forgot that the first thing to do is to set up a strong defense in a bottleneck. Got destroyed at first.

Second time I built a solid defense and a bunch of battle-cruisers, but forgot to get a second base for minerals and ran out of money.

Pretty fun and it is all flooding back.

I freakin' suck now. Only played against AI so far but their second rush usually defeats me easily.

Like Warcraft and C+ C, when I played games like that I would always build a ton of gathering units so that I could basically outbuild the enemy..

Then I would do take the Colin Powell initiative and rush everything that I had.

Either I'm going down or they are.
