    Carbot is making cartoon videos of Blizzard games for about 10-ish years for now. He is very well know specially in the Starcraft and Heroes of the Storm scene and had his own stage in one for the most recent Blizzcons.

    I really enjoy his simple and cutesy style, but understand how strange a cartoon RTS can appear (did one of those really ever existed until now?). Don't it looks cheap on SC1, but I agree the main problem is the lack of iddle animations on units, which is a problem of the base game (also his terrains might be too simple).

    A bit uneasy on a paid mod as you said, but since Starcraft never seemed to had much of a modding scene, I believe it might be okay since the "mod" is basically made by Blizzard.

    Maybe not as much as Warcraft III but just take a look at the Arcade (for mostly multiplayer maps), SC2Mapster for many campaigns and maps in general.

    Its your problem if you are living under a rock but carbot is a youtuber making exclusively funny short cartoons of Blizzard related games such as Starcraft, WOW, Diablo, Heroes of the Storm, Heartstone etc. He has more than a million subscriber of Blizzard fans and he is extremely popular in the community, made numerious colaboration with Blizzard, this Starcraft DLC which is a huge work is the latest of them. Also its not a mod, its a complete remake of the entire Starcaft 1's graphic.

    Many maps have been made in those days but mods, not so many, yes.
    That's false. It's not low effort.

    You know it's easy to outright shame it to the wall....

    Why don't you train yourself at explaining why it's a low effort cash grab instead of calling it out without arguments? :]

    Flash graphics conversion for a """remaster"""of the 1998 RTS Starcraft

    Both cost 10$

    And your telling me its not a cash grab

    FROM BLIZZARD in 2019.

    You know whats not a cash grab and does more than a flash graphics conversion?

    Stuff like Curse of the Forsaken
    Starcraft Mass Recall
    Baldurs gate sword coast strategems.

    But a RTS flash skin published by blizzard from some random youtuber. Gimme $10

    I bet you fell for Bethesdas paid mod PR pitch for "mini DLC" if you defend this jank.
    Omg i dont give a shit who Carbot is and neither does the vast majority of players.

    Fanboy harder for him

    And ya. Its a mod and a low effort microtransaction

    Don't want it. Don't buy it.

    Don't attack people for wanting money in a world where money is required to survive.
    You have no duty to support them, and they have no duty to make it affordable for you.

    Watch me

    I agree. Nothing is free in this world. One time will come we have to pay shade from sunlight and oxygen to breathe in.
    Well at least I will be dead at that time.

    You think 30$ for hundreds of new textures is expensive?

    There are LoL and CS:GO skins for hundreds of dollars that people buy. People spend hundreds of dollars on cosmetics in WoW (Race/faction changes + mounts) in addition to the mandatory monthly fee + expansions

    And don't get me started on the whales in mobile games.

    Prices for games hasn't increased for a very long time, while the prices of developing games has increased massively. Crunch time has become a larger and larger practices in the game development industry, and gamedeveloper programmers is amongst the lowest paid type of programmers that are. And I'm sure the same is true for other types of gamedevelopers too. Mid-sized game development companies has practically become history.

    So yeah, if anything, games and dlc is way too cheap as it is now.
    Dlc, add-ones and loot boxes is a way for game developers to try and avoid increasing game prices.
    Loot boxes is predatory as sh*t, but otherwise the complaining is a bit silly given the state of the market.


    A lot of people is predicting another video game crash. But that could very well just be alarmism. The market might very well adapt, before we reach that point.

    Are you deliberately not thoroughly assessing?
    Those are custom campaigns and while there might be much effort for those due to lack of manpower, in terms of graphics, there is nothing you haven't seen before as everything used there was already made priorly.

    So, no, you're not writing arguments but an unreasonable rant. If you want to give some feedback, look at the awful "you need Remastered and not just StarCraft first to be able to play Cartooned move".

    But please stop spamming this thread with off-topic and use a proper thread for it:
    StarCraft: Cartooned

    As I already said the vast majority of Starcraft (and other blizzard game) players DO care about him and love him. Seriously, you are embarrassing yourself.

    There wont be another crash.

    Just those certain studios wont see much interest in their future releases.

    I mean at this point i think if Bioware was shut down the majority that would be upset 10 years ago would be applauding it in 2019.

    How many of those 1 million do you think ever played starcraft brood war


    Im gonna say probably less than 5000 being realistic

    Its a guy who makes aninations on a youtube channel. Hes gonna get subs but if you think even 10% of his base has an interest in playing RTS you are deluding yourself

    How will poor activison blizzard survive!!!

    Also extra credits is a fucking chump.

    Oh no i play the Axis team in a shooter that makes us nornalize Nazi idology

    He said that.

    Nevermind the entertiee existence of Nintendo refutes his trash tier video nevermind the overwhelmingly MOCKING he faced in his comments for this idiotic video.


    Lets not pretend microtransaction filled games made fames better. Those games filled with them are by and far the worst dogshit to disgrace gaming in the last decade

    Fallout 76
    Anthem
    Destiny 2 under activison
    Call of duty
    Battlefield
    Star wars battlefront
    Shadows of war
    Fallout 4 season pass
    Bethesdas "creation club"
    Wolfenstein youngblood
    Rage 2
    All Blizzard Games
    Vast majority of ubisoft games

    And lets not forget blizzard does it in EVERY GAME but this blizzard curated flash skin for $10 is somehow different.

    No its just blizzard being blizzard

    You know who doesnt subsidise costs and try to defend it

    Larian- cdprojekt- remedy- obsideon entertainment- I.D. Fromsoftware and several pro consumer ones who call out the industry bullshit as greed.

    You already said its yourself. WoW cosmetics
    Same company

    Just because one thing is more aggregious than others doesnt mitigate it when a company is taking the piss for another quick money grab

    And lets not act like this flash skin is any major effort considering the artistic talent Blizzard has at their disposal.

    You know what else $10 can get you in 2019. Witcher 1/2/3 on holiday sales.

    Anyway im sure viktor wants to send another open love letter to Carbot directed at me so kll wait as ive said my piece.



    ----
    Bonus round

    For those about to whine im off topic

    No i couldnt be more on topic.

    Because you are going to get little bite sized purchasable content all over reforged when it comes out and as long as they can milk you after that

    If you think blizzard is going to make a brand new RTS game from the ground up which is exactly what wc3 is since its not a resolution upscale.

    Well...

    The writing is on the wall with a mobile diablo game on the horizon and all of Starcraft 2s great little $30 skinpacks /voicepacks it sells these days

    Not just any, Brood War and StarCraft II.

    Is there any Call of Duty game where you play as a German, at least?
