Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty Discussion
yea..i mean we'd need some serious HDD space with just the game files being about 21/22GB in size plus additional space for save games and patches etc.(remember SW Force Unleashed) on top of all that it'd be a shame if the developers couldn't pay close attention to every aspect of each and every faction simply because they'd have to do it all at one go.
There is NO reason to think each expansion would duplicate all the disk space requirements of the original game, and if it does, it's because they Blizzard had a brain fart and didn't think to make the installer check and see if the base files were there and just have it install the needed files for the expansion.
And I dunno if they've released this info yet, but I fully expect the next two games to be Expansions, where you guys are talking about them as if they're gonna be SC3 and SC4. I'll be surprised if they're even stand-alone.
If they do have the same disk space requirements, it would only be if Blizzard were foolish enough to make it a standalone game that does not require WOL in order to be installed and played, and I don't think there's much chance of that =].
On topic, I installed SC1 on my work PC yesterday so I can get some practice in with a few people on the network during the slow parts of the day XD.
If they are expansions only they I am with the 3-5 GB range as well as far as disk space. But I DON'T work for Blizzard so I am only speculating and its fun.
I'm trying to finish it and the expansion before I buy SCII.
I'm a little fuzzy on my SC lore.
The original Starcraft has 30 missions, 10 for each race. Brood war has 24. Wings of Liberty has 29 missions. Each of the expansions will have at least 24 missions.
That means each installment of Starcraft 2 on its own will be as big as the original Starcraft was. How can that be disappointing?
