If you play games at all, or have an internet connection (both of which I’m sure you do), then you’ll know at least a little bit about the ever-changing, ever-so-fun game that is Starcraft 2.
Starcraft 2, for those a little behind the times, is an RTS from Blizzard Entertainment, which has gained immense international popularity and support. The original Starcraft was a huge hit in Korea, with people often labelling it the ‘Official Sport of Korea’.
It a game that can be delved into in a multitude of ways, and as such has a very wide appeal and almost unlimited replay value. Though, the faint of heart may want to steer clear of the ladders, as online competition here is as fast and as furious as they come. Luckily, for those wanting a more relaxed experience, there is an elaborate single player campaign—with expansions on the horizon—as well as a massive collection of community-made game modes and maps.
There are three races in Starcraft; the swarming Zerg aliens, the super-advanced Protoss race, and resourceful Terrans (humans).
I’d like to focus today on Zerg, the so-ugly-they’re-beautiful race of alien ‘bugs’, ruled by a cunning hive mind and hell-bent on universal domination.
