Starcraft

Post by Mr.Guimo »

Isn't this game the most strategy game you ever played?

Well this game is pretty old now and i never get bored at it. For sure this new games as (Earth 2160) etc is very well done and all that stuff, but a nice game as starcraft will not exist any more. Question : Ever herd about a game called Starcommand (revolution) and a game called Outbound? I think these games is the older versions of Starcraft but they didn't make it hole the way as the famous game STARCRAFT did ?

Yup. Starcraft Ghost was supposed to be something like World of Warcraft except with SC characters!

I do think it was an unofficials news site... but the hell with it!
The thing is Mr. Guimo that the team that made SC split up and left Blizzard thus SC2 is not due for another 10-20 years, when EA Games buys Blizzard :laugh:

Larry Laffer starcraft 2 is coming soon :P

Gahh EA-Games cant just buy Blizzard. Blizzard is an own company. I get broked here, i cant stand it any more.. . . . NO :cry:

Otherwise EA-Games do many great games, but thats not the point here. Blizzard should be for them selves i think :jester:
EA-Games could not compare with Blizzard exept three games and thay are Need for speed I, Need for speed II and Need for speed III.
Blizzard have done all the great strategy games. from warcraft til Starcraft til Dune (i think) etc.

[But as i said before ALL great games are from 1993 - 1999 though even EA-Games were GREAT and creative with there games.]
But we ain't talking about EA-Games here. We'r talk about Starcraft and i have a question about Starcraft Ghoast. What happend. Did thay cansled it or what ?

EA-Games sub divisions make tons of good games but theres no real support for any of them... once they stop making a certain amount of profit they just stop making patches and/or addressing issues...

take a look at need for speed most wanted... it has 3 patches... look at command and conquer the first decade... it takes eons to get a patch out... look at the sims 2... it just crashes with a generic error relating to kernel32.dll and the support reply we got from them was that they received our email... THEY DID NOTHING AND HAVEN'T REPLIED... been months since we sent it...

No, they are definitely not. Older versions of Starcraft were never released and shown at E3, but were changed to todays Starcraft because of its "Orcs in space" feeling.
