And honestly most games were originally influenced by older books. You know those things that people sometimes have with a lot of paper and words printed on them.

lol, I'm surprised you guys back up Blizzard so much.

don't get me wrong, I know what influences are, and I know that everything comes from somewhere.

However there's a difference between Influence and Plagiarism.

I could cite many different aspects of Starcraft in which the Terran Marines look EXACTLY like Space Marine. Know those cool new marines with jetpacks on? search Assault Space marines, they're the same exact thing.

Zerglings are Gaunts, Ultralisk is a Carnifex and the way the zerg "consumes" a world then makes bio matter into new warriors is straight from Games workshops Tyranids.

I wont say much about Protoss, as they are somewhat far enough away from Eldar to be considered only "influenced", so I give Blizzard enough Intellect to come up with an somewhat original race.

Blizzard is a crack team of great programmers and businessmen, however great creators? I personally don't think so. take it with a grain of salt, I'll be playing Stacraft 2 with the rest of you, I only stated what I said because somebody mentioned how it was a ripoff of the flood, which I think isn't so, as this looks nothing like the fat explody things, more like it was INFLUENCED by the flood though.

Most creaters of Sci-Fi games/movies/books that we enjoy today have been directly influenced by JRR Tolkien and his many writings (including but no limited to The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit). Issac Asimov is also a big influence. None of these idea are BRAND new. Get over it...

Starcraft 2 will be a great game, and it will be played for over a decade like Starcraft and all the other Blizzard games that have been released.

i wonder if same ranged unit, like a marine can take one of these out from afar...

Most uber powerful units in RTS's have some sort of way obvious weakness. Wonder what this one is...
