One thought on “LoL – Episode 24 – StarCraft 2 Stress”
I love you for reviewing this game!! I think you just barely touched the surface of the starcraft universe though! You should try the multiplayer modes desert strike, the thing, tower defense, RPGs…. etc. These are all fan made gameplay modes. It’s an endless replay value. You could probably play this game for the rest of your life because people keep inventing new modes. This is why starcraft has been played for 13 years I think. I don’t know if all these modes have been made for starcraft 2 yet though. Please do more podcasts about starcraft! This is the first episode I heard and I was lucky that you reviewed my favorite game. Thank you! :)
