Unit Info & In-Game Unit Models

    Baneling

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: New

    Description: The Baneling acts as a rolling bomb that explodes on contact with an enemy unit or building. Groups of Banelings can quickly cut a swath through enemy infantry and even take down structures when fielded en masse. Banelings can be morphed from Zerglings.

    Corruptor

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: New

    Description: The Corruptor is the Zergís dedicated air-to-air unit. Corruptors donít immediately destroy their targets. Instead, the targeted enemy becomes corrupted, becoming a stationary turret that fires at other nearby enemies. In this way, Corruptors can quickly overcome large groups of enemy fliers, turning them against one another.

    Drone

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: Classic

    Description: The Drone is the Zergís worker unit, used to gather resources such as minerals or Vespene gas. They are also used to morph into various Zerg structures.

    Hydralisk (Further Info)

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: Classic

    Description: As in the original StarCraft, Hydralisks serve as basic foot soldiers for the Zerg, with the ability to shoot at ground or airborne targets. Hydralisks can also morph into Lurker units.

    Infested Marine

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: Classic

    Description: The Infested Marine is produced by any enemy structure thatís been afflicted with the Infestation ability. Infested Marines move slowly but act and shoot much like a regular Terran Marine.

    Infestor

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: New

    Description: The Infestor is the primary support unit for the Zerg in StarCraft II. It doesnít possess a direct attack but its unique abilities make it a fearsome sight on the battlefield. Dark Swarm creates a smokescreen for units to hide under, protecting them from ranged attacks. Disease targets a single enemy, giving it a damaging aura that hurts surrounding units. The Infestor also has the Infestation ability, which temporarily infests an enemy structure, causing it to produce Infested Marines. Finally, the Infestor has the ability to move while burrowed, making it useful for sneaking in under enemy base defenses.

    Lurker

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: Classic from StarCraft: Brood War

    Description: Lurkers make a return in StarCraft II. As in StarCraft: Brood War, Lurkers are morphed from Hydralisks and can only attack while burrowed. They can devastate packed groups of infantry as they attack in a line with their subterranean spines.

    Mutalisk (Further Info)

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: Classic

    Description: Mutalisks are the Zergís primary flying unit. As in the original game, they use a special Glaive Wurm attack that bounces twice from its original target, doing damage to up to three units with each shot.

    Nydus Worm

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: New

    Description: The Nydus Worm puts a new twist on the Nydus Canal mechanic from StarCraft II. Nydus Worms can move to create an entry/exit point anywhere on the map, allowing the Zerg army a means to almost instantly funnel ground troops from one side of the map to the other.

    Overlord

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: Classic

    Description: The Overlord is the Zergís basic command and control unit. As in the original game, it is a slow flying unit with no attack, but as your army grows, youíll need to create more Overlords and keep them protected. Whatís new to this unit in StarCraft II are a couple of special abilities. The slime ability allows the Overlord to disable resource nodes and neutral observatories. Overlords can also create a small, temporary patch of creep for the Zerg to build on.

    Overseer

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: New

    Description: Individual Overlords can be upgraded by the player to Overseers, which serve as airborne detector units. Overseers lose the slime and creep abilities of the Overlord, but gain a larger sight radius and give the player the ability to see cloaked and burrowed enemies.

    Queen

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: New

    Description: The original StarCraft had a units called Queens, but the Queen in StarCraft II is so different, that its form and function do not at all resemble the Queens from the original game. The two units merely share a name.

    In StarCraft II, Queens are birthed directly out of the Hatchery, and you can only control one at a time. The Queen is a powerful fighting unit, but more importantly, she orchestrates the defense of Zerg bases by using a number of unique abilities. Queens can create special structures that expand the base of creep, or act as stationary defense turrets.

    Also, as Queens evolve, they can gain new abilities such as Deep Tunnel, which allows the Queen to instantly move to any of your buildings on the map. The Toxic Creep ability makes a small area of creep damaging to enemy ground units standing on it. Swarm Infestation lets the Queen temporarily turn any Zerg building into a defensive turret that shoots at enemies, while Regeneration lets the Queen quickly heal any damaged Zerg structures.

    Roach

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: New

    Description: The Roach is a specialized ground unit with the unique ability to very quickly regenerate damage. Used properly, Roaches can absorb tremendous amounts of damage and can only be killed with concentrated and heavy fire from enemies.

    Swarm Guardian

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: New

    Description: As with the Guardian in the original StarCraft, the Swarm Guardian in StarCraft II is morphed from the Mutalisk, and serves as the Zergís aerial siege weapon. The Swarm Guardian possesses a long-range, air-to-ground attack that hits for a good deal of damage and also spawns small broodlings that can attack for a short period of time.

    Ultralisk

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: Classic

    Description: Arguably the Zergís most intimidating unit, the Ultralisk is back in StarCraft II. Ultralisks can engage and attack multiple ground units in front of it with its scythe-like Kaiser Blades. They also possess a large number of hit points, allowing it to absorb lots of damage as they lead Zerg charges.

    Zergling

    Classic StarCraft unit, or new to StarCraft II?: Classic

    Description: The Zergling is the most basic combat unit for the Zerg faction. Zerglings are fast-moving ground units with a melee attack, and are typically used en-masse. They can be morphed individually into Banelings.

Why do I look at it and see Star Ship Troopers? icon_confused

Because the aliens in the movie were based on the Zerg?

Or the Zerg were based on the aliens in Starship Troopers novel written in 1959.

I always thought the Starcraft races were pretty much based off of Warhammer 40K myself.

Blizzard stole stuff from all over the place (out of love I'm sure).  I see lots of Alien influence.  "We're in for some chop".

Many unit responses in their RTS games are taken from nerd-culture references.  Any time I would get a new unit I would click on it until I heard all of their lines hehe.

Bah! My cell phone receives it's time changes through my phone company itself. Last year I didn't know that. I couldn't figure out a way to change it myself so I set the alarm in it to account for it. Some time during the morning, it switched over automatically by receiving a signal from a tower or something, I guess. And of course my alarm was off by an hour.

This year it STILL hasn't updated. I know my way around the phone relatively well by now and there's no way to change the time yourself.  mad

Have you power cycled your phone?  That should trigger the update for sure.

If you're looking at spending 30+ per movie and HD movies is critical, get the PS3.

Gotta throw in the Netflix card on this one to be realistic.  For the cost of owning one blu-ray movie you can easily rent more twenty from Netflix with just their standard plan.

yeah, but it can take forever to get them.   Hopefully they start getting more copies of Blu Ray movies in so it doesn't take as long.

I've not had this issue at all in SF, CA.

And you can easily find brand new blu-ray movies on eBay for ~20 or less.  I've bought 300 and Ratatouille for less than $20 on eBay, both brand new and sealed.

I have been given clearance from the Wife to procure a next gen. system.  After doing a ton of reading I still can't decide.  The Xbox 360 has a ton more games but the PS3 is more feature rich, future proof, and possibly reliable (jury still out on the newest version of xbox?).  I think i'm leaning towards the XBOx because of the games.  I went to the store yesterday and only came up with a couple of games I would want right now on the PS3 that were not cross plat titles.  The pull of Bioshock and Mass effect is strong however as my current PC will have no hope of playing them.  Looking into the future doesn't help much as they both have some interesting exclusives on the horizons and I have been reading good things about developers unlocking the PS3's potential.  This is a seriously tough decision now.

Even though I love this PS3, if I could only get 1 to start with it would definitely be a 360 because of the MP community and the number of games/exclusives that I enjoy.

Well after a couple weeks of ownership now I absolutely love the PS3.  I'm still playing my 360 also, so keep those SDf badges away. 

Pixel Junk Monsters is so wonderful looking and such a fun game to play.  Simple to start but difficult to master, Blizzard-style.  I also got Super Stardust HD, which is glorious looking and sounding.  As previously mentioned, Uncharted is a godly game.  I also got the full version of R&C and it's great looking as well, and a fun departure from a FPS, but still a shooter, which I like.

The UI is so slick, the whole system just seems slick.  I'm definitely glad to be on board with both systems!
