Brad looks hella tired, and looks like he hasn't shaved either...lol
Video Blog: Playing Through StarCraft II
"I don't think so. But it's not an issue since the singleplayer campaign really has no bearing on the multiplayer other than unit selection and UI navigation.
Without any zerg or protoss single player missions does sc2 do anything to teach new players how they work and what their units are?"
Awesome update video.
Keep them coming, and convince some of the other guys that are incompetent at RTS games like I am to create a similar video of their experiences--maybe a compilation of anyone in the office who have been playing? I'm planning on waiting on the purchase for a little while because I don't really have the spare time to invest, but I'm really interested to hear about everyone's experiences while the excitement is high and people still care on a mainstream level.
Great feature idea. Kudos to whoever came up with it!
" FOLLOWUP VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!! I watch things like this when I am at work and can't be playing Starcraft 2. Also, where did the GiantBomb live Starcraft footage go?!?!? Why didn't that stay up on the site? I looked for it on Justin TV to no avail. BAH!!!! "got lost amongst the shovelware on the so-called 'news section' of this site
I had NEVER played an RTS before (played one or two demos of Xbox RTS games) but since I got a new PC last month and because of the excitement of this game I bought SC2.
Really enjoying it so far but I am playing on casual and never played MP.
Thinking about changing up to normal. Although I always have too many resources and I'm always really slow. I also seem to be only staying near one place for my base and etc. I would like to know how to play better and if there's any tips, videos or websites with articles on how to properly play I would be grateful. I've never played a game like it and I am very very impressed.
The most natural, but at the same time also the most time consuming and terran-favouring way would be: campaign; challenge missions; online or offline vs. computer matches with your favorite faction, taking special care to use majorly hotkeys and act very fast. Download and watch replays of pro's ( make sure you DL replays dates to the 27th and later, as beta replays won't load ). Preferably also watch some commentated / casted matches, play another match vs. the computer and then you should be good to go to start fighting other guys. You might also want to go 2v2 or 3v3 at first. Having a team mates might help you have a fun time as they can potentially compensate for your lesser skill.
You could also skip the campaign, which might make it easier to get accustomed to a different race than the terrans.
So yes ! The game has a great system to help new players out - add a bit of research by yourself and you will improve !
Teamliquid's all you need.

I have a question.
I haven't played computer games since I quit WoW like 4 years ago. As you could guess my comp now is now out of date and can't run this efficiently. The problem is I'm in college and very low on funds. My question is will this be a game that will still be worth playing in like 3 years once I can afford to replace the parts I need? Or will most of the players have moved on?
" I can't stand how often Brad says "umm..." and "like" in every video. Please stop it. This is the only website I check for game info, simply because it's the best, and it really hurts the quality of the product you guys are putting out there. "It's okay, baby, just let the tears come.
I loved Jeff's points videos, and am just as thrilled to see a Brad vblog. The personalities of Giantbomb is why I love the site so much, so more of this would be... awesome.
I have no real questions... I was going to ask how well does Starcraft 2 sclae on older PC's (specifically ones with shitty video cards like the Radeon X600) but I've decided to just sell my Wii to upgrade my video card (and power supply) anyway. Gotta play this.
Question: I have Starcraft 1 one my PC that I got a few months ago and touched very briefly (my first Blizzard game incidentally). I was curious about the fiction and how it ties together. It seems like it has a rich lore that runs pretty deep. So, I was wondering if it was worth it to finish the original (along with Brood War), like I was planning to before picking up this game. How does the game address events of the the past game, and is the quality of the story even worth it?
Good feature though Brad. Surprisingly coherent doing a monologue like that. Pretty informative. Wouldn't mind seeing more of these, in general across the site too.
