Original Starcraft Brood War Now Free from Blizzard
If any of you were Brood War fans back in the day, Blizzard has re-released it for free as a download on their website.

Link to page here

Just remember, you must build more pylons. Wink.

I've never played. Does it have a steep learning curve?

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

It's pretty basic, the learning curve isn't that bad. The tutorial covers things. Back in the day it basically set the standard for real time strategy games. Three unique factions with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Line of bunkers with marines in them, with siege tanks behind them, some SCVs, and a line of supply depots to slow the zerglings, and we can hold the line for as long as we need to...as long as there are no Guardians.

Battle-cruisers on stand bye as air-support can help against guardians.

I was never twitchy enough to handle RTS games very well. I thought they were fun but got annihilated in any kind of multiplayer action.

Apparently, they still run the Battle.net. I used to play every evening on the Battle.net (not Brood War, I just played Starcraft without the expansion), I played Zerg, my favorite technique was Mutalisk rush, because most of the time the opponent wasn't ready for air attack (especially as they prepared themselves against massive hydralisk attack). Now, 15 years later, I have probably forgotten everything (I don't even remember the keyboard shortcut), but I'm tempted to try again, see if there are still a few people online on the Battle.Net.

RE: Original Starcraft Brood War Now Free from Blizzard
While I loved the game, my skills never matched my enthusiasm. I could (barely) handle the single player campaigns, but on multi- I got slaughtered.

I'm working on reinstalling it and patching it though. Not sure about the free version. Why get that if I have my original disks? I do want to get the update patches for bug fixes.

We shall see...

Always loved my scouts. Would make quick work of anyone foolish enough to dump all their resources into a giant carrier / battle cruiser fleet. Good memories.
