    High resolution sprites with 3 frames of animation look so desperately wrong.

    Game didn't need a remake or a remaster. Fuck nuBlizzard.

    Anybody complaining about how the units look wrong is somebody that hasn't actually played the original recently enough to remember what it even looked like.

    Seems Blizz is ramping up the media for the release, since it's "already" in august. Gotta say, the gameplay vid does look nice, tho abit off at some points.

    I think I read somewhere, that the gameplay vid going around is actually from an older build, which was confirmed by blizz korea. We'll see, though. Everything else looks on point.

    Very hyped and 15 bucks aint that bad :)

    Oh so here's the catch nobody has told me about. Atmosphere was always half the appeal of Starcraft for me, the first picture just oozes that alien inspired 80's/90's sci-fi feel, while the second pic...well let's just say they can keep that anime/league of legends trash art style for themselves.
    So I guess they redid the mission briefings too?

    "Enhanced narrative". They are going to fuck up the story.

    While I'm cautiously optimistic about the remaster, the new art direction I am not. In particular, the stylistic change. I also find that the Terran victory screen art in particular is off-point and as usual the fans provide and know the game better than the devs.

    This recolor someone did is truer to the tone of the original: [​IMG]

    One has to wonder at what point are you actually changing something in a game that made the game what it was and what people loved so much about it. I like the cleaner/scale-able sprites but question the new artwork and music. Can we not just have a "classic" option?

    Thinking about map design, I wonder if Blizzard will update the tools a bit. For example reverse ramps looked weird and could perform buggily, having options for "real" ramps in all directions would be nice.

    Episode 3 out:

    Check around 2:08 to 2:014 to see their highest dynamic lighting setting. Basically you have 3 settings.

    SD - HD and HD with extra shit on like dynamic lightning and bump mapping etc.

    Answered my ramp question there too. I assume the funky look is placeholder.

    Those are actually the player-created ramps made by splicing together unrelated tiles, that ramp tech is what they will be replacing.

    Yeah I know, I'm just assuming they haven't updated the graphics so that it looks right.

    It probably can't really be updated without going in and individually replacing all of the ramps in user-made maps that use the old workaround. At least a better way exists now, though.
