I agree-- the sound effects and haunting music in Quake 1 were top notch and really created a dark, creepy atmosphere. Playing the game without Reznor's music ruins the atmosphere.

"A new South Korean source claims that, according to a leak, Blizzard will be announcing StarCraft 2 at the World Wide Invitational, on the 19th of May 2007."The leak was announced in a post at thisisgame.com and an English translation is available at GosuGamers: StarCraft 2 Leak (English)
"Whether or not these claims are true will be difficult to confirm because of the nature of the source (anonymous leak). Over the years there has been much said about the sequel — Blizzard has repeatedly mentioned that they have always been interested in 'revisiting the StarCraft world'. However, only recently has there been an increasing number of leaks regarding Starcraft 2, all hinting that it is indeed coming out soon.""

Interestingly, the game will not be a tactical shooter or stealth action game like the other Tom Clancy series Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell. EndWar will be a strategy game, although it is uncertain whether it will be Real-Time Strategy. The creative designer of Rome: Total War, Michael de Plater, is leading the project. This might lead some gamers to wonder whether EndWar will be similar to a modern combat 'Total War' game?"
