    I would assume the system specifications to run this game would be about as consuming as maybe C&C3.

    All of our competing boards have the exact same info/pics/etc. I don't think so.

    You guys are overlooking the cool part. Giant worms unleaching jihading zerglings. On another note theres no way my PC can play those GFX.

    The she-witch is right. the new nydus canals does not need creeps to function, and we haven't seen any overlods either. Maybe the nydus canal will take over the role of mass transportation system away from the overlords.

    Speculate away people!

    This game looks like a souped-up version of Command and Conquer 3 and the specifications are going to be absolutely murderous. I'm starting to think that Blizzard are trying to get more people to play the game as opposed to getting the faithful to switch over.

    Sure, the game looks great and all but the gameplay must leave the faithful satisfied - so no judgements can be made yet.*

    I know I played the campaign.
    The Protoss (in bw) pretty much fought everyone to save their ass and the asses of others. The helped a lot of people, and lost a lot of their own. While the Terrans sat on their asses, and the Zerg (as always) tried to take over. Except the UED tried to stick their fork into the soup...didn't work.

    Heh, they decided to give Marines riot shields.

    I like how now its almost like how Warcraft III was mapped out, and with Less HP to work with. No more micro slacking (Warcraft III) or extreme difficulty microing (Starcraft, but essentially was better).

    And its a good thing my PC can handle it as well.

    Scrin units are cheap as ****.

    Reapers: These guys look a little like Marines, but carry dual machine pistols and function differently. Since StarCraft 2 uses the same kind of tiered maps as in the original, you still need to move units up or down ramps to reach each level of the battlefield. Reapers have jump jets allowing them to hop down or up a tier, making them effective tools for exploiting weak spots in an elevated base.

    From ign.com.

    Dual machine pistols = no shield. That's the marines allrite.

    Like I said, their shield throws off damage from large units, but small units fire gets by.

    Scrin units take long to build or whatever. Their air units are ****ing incredible.

    The developers are still in the coding stage an development. they don't know the exact specs, they just know what the computers they are developing it on. It won't be as bad as everyone is wetting themselves about. I heard the same crying from all the sc players when WCIII came out.
