Thanks for the heads-up.

The hell does this game need a remaster for? it's beautiful as it is :)

I was a huge fan of warcraft 1 & 2, never got into starcraft. Couldn't put my finger on why before, but now that I got significantly into the single player... it's the micromanaging.

I loved 90's RTS's. Red Alert, AOE, Krush Kill n Destroy... Man such a golden age. But starcraft is the only one where you can lose a fight because one of your units decided to take a detour through cleveland and triggers the entire enemy's defenses.

The plus side, the music heavily reminds me of Blizzard's first game Rock n' Roll Racing. It absolutely does not fit Star Craft's theme, but thinking back to RnR Racing is so nostalgic. "Tarquin takes the lead!"
