StarCraft II: Ghosts of the Past Trailer

The big release of StarCraft II is just on the other side of the weekend. Are you excited? Hopefully you have your pre-order in place if you're looking for the collector's edition.

With the release so close upon us, Blizzard has released a new cinematic trailer featuring the lovely Ghost and Sarah Kerrigan.

As per usual, Blizzard's CGI is a real treat. In fact, the masters of CGI at Pixar see a lot of similarities between itself and Blizzard.

  • Very good for a movie. This trailer can be perfectly of a newcome movie (maybe future)...

    I second that. The music score and voice acting are just top notch(i feel voice acting is rarely done right in games). So, blizzard do seem to get it right. Hell, I would trust blizzard to make a movie on SC rather than Pixar. Ok, that was not entirely a truth, but I think either would do a good job. And we might finally get to see a truly game to movie adaptation done right.

    I must be the only person on Earth not excited for this game. Blizzard's unusually high price and lack of any plans for a demo are real deal breakers for me right now.
    That is a pretty cool trailer though.

    Blizzards marketing has never really included game demos (with the exception of WoW), as for the price, $60 is standard nowadays.

  • Yeah, give us two years or so and Ill buy it in the bargain section, have had look at game videos and screen shots, plus read reviews like guru3d, and cant say I am that impressed, just looks like all other RTS we have become accustomed to!

    I'm right behind you, don't worry. I personally will not be spending $63.59 for this. It's a good game no doubt, but with pre-orders blowing out at $45 etc I wouldn't be surprised to see sales months after release. Or maybe I could just wait for the "ULTIMATE TRILOGY COLLECTION PACK" or some other thing like that.

    The only reason I pre-ordered on Best Buy's site was due to getting two $25 gift cards that I'll never use there. I figure it's probably worth it for $13.00.

    But $64.00 w/tax is outrageous. I remember when you could get a good PC game for $14.99.
