Starcraft II Preperations
Some would say it is a little bit early and others might argue it's not needed, but two weeks ago I started to play Starcraft I again in single player mode. I finally took down the zerg overmind as I progressed through the 10 levels of each race.
The game was published in 1998 by Blizzard Entertainment and still is played today within the vastness of the Battle.net. I really enjoyed the different races, the many possible strategies and the interesting intelligence of the computer enemy. I focused mainly on using the keyboard short-cuts, got to know the advantages and disadvantages of each unit and reactivated the epic story. I think the last time I played through the campaign is about 8 years ago, so it was about time!
The next milestone will be to play through the expansion. Hopefully it will be as much fun as the first part. I will also play some Battle.net games just to get beaten once or twice. ;) I can only encourage you to refresh your memories or (for those that never touched starcraft) to try it out.
Starcraft II will hopefully be released in 2010. Until then we are well prepared and ready to go!
