Speaking of Starcraft 2.
 While we wait, is there any mod out there that enhances the graphics of the game? Or even lets you change the resolution of the game?

I had a burned copy but figured meh, ill buy the real deal for 15 bucks in the starcraft store.

So graphical enhancement for Starcraft?

I suppose it's funny that you posted after me, because you are also female.  How coincidental.

Umm... Did you delete your post then redo it today? Or, did this forum have a hiccup. Last night I saw fromans and magentis post. Then fromans post came up unread it was the same and then magentis post was just there now.

So, yeah, I was watching some clips on youtube about the game.

I really, really like the whole "Point n' click adventure game talky thing" they have going on with Raynor and company...although it will be a bit odd adapted for the zerg, because the only zerg that really talk are Kerrigan and that one ghost, Duran, was it? I think it's sort of a step in the right direction.

The "Plot currency for tech tree options" is a weird little thing, but I sort of like it. Gives the campaign a little bit more replay value, and I can grab reapers A.S.A.P. and avoid getting those stupid Viking things until they're an actual neccesity. And grabbing infested terrans early on with the zerg, yes indeedy. I like the way the infested terrans use the guns they have on em', which was something I thought was missing from the first game.

What I don't think is a step in the right direction is where they seem to be taking the plot:

So in the demo clip, Zeratul comes over and says hi to raynor. Then, he sorta drops this really corny soundy doom prophecy thing in Raynor's lap. Xel'naga coming back? Weren't they destroyed by the zerg, at least according to the manual for the first game? Magic happy artifact collection...urgh. Also, a lot of the character voices bug me.

Yeah I was just trying it out... dude, this game blows. The graphics suck, the music is awful, and what the hell are humans doing messing around with a bunch of bugs and guys in armor? They totally ripped off Starship Troopers or something here.

Nope, i'm pretty sure the ghost/infected ghost black guy created a xel'naga/zerg hybrid didn't he? Or was it a zerg/protoss hybrid...

Anyway I read all three books who's with me eh?! eh?!

Your insane. I know you are young and all, but its probably the best balanced stategy game out there and still rules even though its 10 years old. Go play your minecraft if you dont like it.
I like the starships troopers rip off honestly.

Which (Yokto will agree with me on this) totally ripped off Star Wars.
