A Year of Starcraft II
All of those who have told me to just build marines and whatever unit is introduced in the campaign missions were completely right. For four missions now, I’ve done this. Maybe throw in a few siege tanks (because they’re fun) and a few medics, but that’s the build. If I do this, keep the macro up, and generally just keep building until 200/200, the missions are a lot easier. Yesterday, I did the train mission and the one with the mercenary chick you have to get minerals for. Today, I finished the Odin mission and the attack on the TV station mission.
Doing all this, though, feels like a grind. I keep thinking about the online play. It’s calling to me. Now that I’m close to finishing the campaign, I can see the online games on the horizon, and it’s hard to keep playing the campaign. I am going to keep going, but the enthusiasm for the campaign is starting to wane. This is also why I don’t necessarily feel like writing a blow-by-blow of all four missions.
Computer wise, the new card is on the way. I went with a different manufacturer (EVGA instead of ASUS) but still a GTX 460. It was the card mentioned in the Team Liquid build I was referred to when building, so it’s a 1gb instead of 768mb (I’ve no idea what that means for video cards really). Looking for the card, I couldn’t help but wonder how there can be so many GTX 460s? It’s all confusing as hell.
On a completely unrelated to anything note, how fast does an idea/joke move nowadays? I mean, the falcon thing started online like two months ago, and now it’s already being used in at least two separate commercials that I’m aware of. Is 4chan where the advertising guys hang out now for ideas? Or is falconry simply a trending topic in the psyche of the US at the moment? (I hate myself for writing that sentence, but I’m going to leave it.) The insurance company commercial where the guy gets a falcon was just on, and it struck me as strange. /end weird aside
I’m going to finish one more mission tonight and keep pushing to finish, hopefully by Tuesday.
