I think it’s Thursday… I’m not sure. I got SC2 at 12am on Tuesday (ie. late Monday night). Since then I’ve had a crazy busy work schedule working almost 14 hrs on Tuesday and then 16 hrs on Wednesday. You add in the fact I’m going to bed late from SC2 and I’ve had about 8 hrs of sleep since Monday.
On the plus side… SC2 single player is amazing. Tons of people talked about how they have beaten it already but I’m struggling with it.
There’s 4 levels of difficulty, easy, normal, hard, and brutal. I’m a decent SC2 player (was diamond league back in beta) so I figured I’d play it on brutal difficulty. It’s tearing my ass up. It’s taken me 3+ tries on most of the missions trying to figure out how best to beat it plus get the achievements.
That’s right Marisse… I’m going for nerd points in Starcraft 2!
I was gonna try to cook Tuesday but then I had a managers meeting that took all day (cuz of the drive to and from). Then Wednesday I had to pull a double due to employee’s calling in and tonight Betsy is cooking so I’m relegated to Friday afternoon (I work Friday night at the other job OMG).
Back to the point though… SC2.
The single player has/is been more than I expected. There’s only like 26 missions which I was kind of sad about but if you are playing on the appropriate difficulty level (one that doesn’t let you breeze through it) then it’ll take awhile to beat it. The cut scenes and the storyline are great. The AI has been intelligent enough to switch strategies and build the right counter units or to make timing attacks. I’m very pleased with the game and I highly recommend it if you even mildly like RTS.
