there was a part 2? I only have it on my N64 cartridge that comes w/ the "brood war" expansion missions. Its not as pretty as the PC version, but once you get the hang of the controls, it can still be pretty dang fun. (minus FMV cutscenes, though)

In first year, everyone on my floor used to play these crazy all- long night battles on the rez-net. hell, I have a P4 now, maybe I'll actually get the new one for PC.

are you talking about "Starcraft: Ghost" for the Playstation 2? Doesn't look like a direct sequel to me, more of a spin-off game first-person-shooter. sounds cool to me.

Don't think so... The Starcraft plot is way more interesting... I even like the old Starcraft better than the new Warcraft III

speaking of "nuclear launch detected" how the hell do you stop the ghosts from nuking you? Do you have to find them and zap them yourself when they're cloaked or will the computer do it for you if you have a missle turret.

fucking ghosts. god I hate them.

well, you need to be able to see them first...with turrets, science vessels, observers, overlords or whatever

then you just need to kill 'em normally

you don't get very long tho...so it's probably a good idea to have detection out anyway

Ok folks, the new Ghost game is not a true sequel to SC, it's just some lame FPS. Blizzard has stated however that they will make Starcraft II eventually. We'll just have to wait.

If you haven't played Warcraft III yet, it's something to tide you over until the next Starcraft.

I'm a Zerg man myself, followed by Protoss then Terran. I always dislike the 'human' races in games. Or at least the US. The Uknranians in C&C: Red Alert OWN YOU!

I like the Terrans because of the Siege Tanks, which is my personal primary choice for defense. Once you research the siege ability on those fuckers, line of 3 or 4 of them in a row aint't NOBODY getting through.
Uh, unless they're airbore, though. Then have some Goliath's backing you up to take out those fuckers.

edit: the zerg are cool in the way that, well, they look so freakin cool. But I think they're a little weak, you set up a good defensive line and they crumple like paper. Sure, swarming helps, but if you set up like, 4 groups of 18 in the Terrans you wouldn't have that many losses with with Zerg you might lose half of that number.

I don't know much about the protos cuz I haven't played them that much. think I'll go play a protos mission now...

I always go with Terran... A bunker with 4 SCV intantly reparing it is just invunerable.

I also like to use a squad of 12 Battlecruiser (with all upgrades). It's devastating http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/smile.gif

If Starcraft is like sex and probably lasts as long/longer, then i'm in.

But, my friends little brother has been 100% hooked on Starcraft. Well, the kid is pretty deranged and he's been playing that game 24/7 for a year and half and hasn't really beat it.

...

Mmmmm fine PC games. Something I haven't yet experienced. A loser I am.

I'm not saying the Zerg suck, I'm saying I'm not very good with them and I always go through a ton of them in comparison to the Terrans.

but, I haven't unlocked all of the Zerg characters yet considering how I don't mulitplay Starcraft, I only have the N64 version.

<font color="aquamarine">A good strategy with Zerg is developing Guardians ASAP, and then rush your oppponent with about 8 of them. If you do it fast enough, your opponent won't have the SAM defense capabilities to cope with the attack. Keep in mind that Guardians can shoot photon cannons and missile turrets while out of the range of either.

I got thrashed a few times with this strategy.

the control is super-complex but they did a good job of fixing it up. You can have up to 4 preset groups of 18. I've never played it on the computer, so I don't know how it stacks up.

fuck, I've just been studying for the LSAT for the past 2 hours, I need to kill something. Uh, in Starcraft, I mean...
