"Protoss who are the Aliens from Signs"

No they are based on the aliens from Independence Day. They both have no mouths :P

Samtemdo8:
They both have no mouths :P

But how do they eat?

I really would have liked to play as Nova in Starcraft: Ghost :(

And I think the only reasonable thing to do after you've realized that you suck at regular Starcraft, is to play games in the Arcade instead of whining on the forums.

As to how the aliens eat I don't know. Do they even have any orifices?

That's still in RTS mode though, according to the trailer. Would be fun if it was in 3rd person though... Is 1st person even possible playable in that engine?

I don't think so. I wouldn't be surprised if they sustain themselves on some form of psionic energy. At least that would explain why you must construct additional pylons all the time.

They're solar powered.

Well you can blame Blizzard for that one. SC:Ghost was slated to come out right during the peak of WoW's popularity, as such Blizzard had pretty much all of its resources focused on keeping that gravy train running.

As such they outsourced the SC:Ghost project to a 3rd party studio because they couldn't be arsed to make the game themselves. Things were going fine until during one progress check-in, Blizzard said "This isn't the game we were really hoping for" and scrapped the project. I'd imagine had they actually made the game themselves they would have gotten the game they were hoping for and we all could have experienced the SC universe from a 3rd person perspective.

The long and short of it is that the 3rd party studio was making more of a generic 3rd person shooter with some stealth elements, Blizzard was wanting a heavily stealth and infiltration based game along the lines of something like Metal Gear Solid.

Wait... the RTS genre is extinct? Since when?
