Is it just me or do some of the scenes in Starcraft 2 look like they’re right out of Avatar?
Any suggestions for alternate download locations? Blizzard Downloader is too slow. :(
or was it like the avatar, gave a preview/sneak peek at the new sc2 game…
banshee design is very practical though seen it on starship troopers.
Actually, Blizzard designed those vehicles/units/map designs before avatar was even released. Some of the units depicted in the screenshot (such as the mutalisks, dropships, marines, etc) are from the original, 12 year old game. I believe that the similarities between Avatar and SC2 are coincidence.
Oh god sc2 looks awesome
That last screen shot looks identical to the big battle in Avatar, from the flying machines to the flying dinosaur beasts… gee I wonder if Blizzard are fans?
I have the game waiting for me at home… can’t wait to get off work and play it!
