Hell, Its about Time- Starcraft II , New Laptop etc..

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on October 22, 2010 by raghavr24

Well, its finally happened… We’ve seen good times together, have taken her out a lot, lot of sleepless nights (gaming ;p) and well was getting a bit expensive at the end. We had to let her go. So far my dear HP nx7400

I guess it was destiny when it gave out and Starcraft II was released. I must be the only guy who would get a new laptop – good enough to run a PC game not the other way around ;P

Ive also got mixed feelings – Why? after 3 days trying to install the cracked version of Starcraft II (apologies blizzard) – but this time even the wiliest of hackers couldnt get through Starcraft II’s anti crack software. I was up for 2 nights trying to tie the gaurdian knot. I realized that for a game like Starcraft II, I would dishonour it if I did not buy the original version, which I did later – under a timespan of 2 minutes. 59.99 $ was the price and,hell its worth every single penny.

Initial thoughts-
Graphics are amazing, destroying the environment has never been so much fun. Campaign is a bit RPG’ish, missions are very fun and hopefully will lead up to continue the great epic left from Brood War. I am a bit disappointed that the terran music has not be fully retailed from SC1, but the 1 song retained and remixed is something that will give you goosebumps.

Have a list of games I want to try, but seems like after inaugurating SC II, everything else will be treated with a jaundiced eye!

Stracraft II – Wings of Liberty released!

Posted in Starcraft with tags on July 27, 2010 by raghavr24

Released – Midnight July 27th 2010. Been waiting for this for a long time.

Played the beta, not too impressive honestly (50% due to playing it on an outdated PC), half the game is the graphics. Reviews are not too positive, gamers have slammed it for no LAN option along with just the terran campaign in WoL. Frankly, that is a terrible thing to do, considering the fact that it was the very same storyline between the Terran, Zerg and Protoss that has given fans so much to adore about the game. Splitting and releasing it as separate options is just not cool.

Will be some time before I get to play this, as I dont even think my home PC will have the engine to run this baby. And frankly, am in no hurry to upgrade. I hope I change my mind!
