New StarCraft II cinematic trailer asks “Is it completely epic in here, or is it just me?”

Blizzard has released a new cinematic trailer. Yeah. Those of you in the know have probably already popped a giant bowl of popcorn and slipped on your thickest, longest pair of socks in a vain attempt to avoid having them knocked off and sent flying into the sun.

As for those of you who aren’t “in the know”? Well, there’s never a better time than the present. And unless you’re fighting an actual intergalactic space battle or you are Bruce Wayne, whatever you’re doing right now is guaranteed to be significantly less entertaining than this trailer. Check it out after the break.

    @2 LOL?

    YES! Queen Of blades will suck my Jim’s Rainor big… BIG GUN!

    Can’t wait for this game. Especially the story. Can’t wait for the Samir Duran’s cryptic statements, can’t wait to find out the United Earth Directorate’s Expeditionary Force remains, can’t wait to see new epic characters that Blizzard created.

    I so want this and going to play on MAX. I’m So Happy this summer.

    Stupid XBLA and PSN games can fuck off! I’m happy!

    What?! this is only for PC?!

    No buy for me since i can not afford a 10.000$ PC to actually run games.

    Good stuff looks very good story wise, though I think they are giving away too much of a hint that Raynor is going to Char to save Kerrigan where she was originally turned into a Zerg.

    And yeah Blizzard definitely needs to team up with Pixar or some other studio and start doing proper CGI movies with its content.

    @rainer

    Personally, I think they’re going to Char to detonate a nuke and take her and the rest of the Zerg out. The weird triangle thing they all stand around? The bomb. I’d be sure if the “nuke” shot we’ve seen many times (even as a wallpaper) didn’t have buildings in it (which aren’t present on Char, it never having been colonised by any race that needs to live in them)

    I agree though, I really don’t want Kerrigan to be redeemed or any of that kind of shit. She’s much too badass for that.

    Also yeah, Blizzard. Make a long movie. Spend your entire budget and 10 years making it. For the love of us all.

    What 9 said basically. I’m not particularly into Starcraft (nor do I think it particularly needs a story), but I wouldn’t argue with seeing a movie done like that.

    @6 are you crazy? #5 has got it spot on. I had to spend £25,000 building my PC just so it will run Starcraft II. If I want to run Crysis I will have to spend another £4000.

    Phew! PC gaming sure is expensive

    @15 I completely agree.
    I just spent 100,000$ upgrading my RAM and 750,000$ on a new CPU. I’m not looking forward to the 4,500,000$ investment for a new GFx Card

    As much as a fail Battle.net 2.0 is, I really cannot wait for the single player.

    Battle.Net 2.0 is my only resurvation as well.

    I can run this on a €300 PC, never mind €500.

    Am I the only one that’s not impressed? Sure it looks pretty, but the trailer itself is just one cheesy collection of scenes and dialogue. The pacing of the trailer didn’t seem right either, it was just jumping all the time.
