Starcraft II's Tyranids

Rearing their ugly heads: Zerg!!!

No posts for the last few days; came down with flu and now I'm smelling like an untapped Vespene fault.

Anyway, videogames nowadays are so ridden with space bugs that I think that's the reason THQ has not released the Tyranids yet for their wildly successful Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series. The company who so popularized space critters in games, however, have recently disgorged a trailer featuring the implacable Zerg.

Here's a video entitled "StarCraft II Zerg Gameplay from "THIS IS GAME"" that was uploaded by someone named "Mr0919" in YouTube:

Warhammer 40,000 started in the 80's while Blizzard's Starcraft was released in the 90's. I still consider W40K to be the original "Starcraft;" there's just too much parallelism between the two. Anyway, I'm ranting. That's for another post. Good day all!

UPDATE: Forget the above video. Do you want to see Blizzard's official trailer? Do you want to hear Kerrigan's voice? Do you want an article about a hands-on experience with the swarm? Go to Gamespot, register (it's free the last time I checked), and download the video!

Actually if you look into it. Most of the SC universe is Warhammer 40k throw away material. GW helped outs semi sort of.
