“You must construct additional pylons.”

From: Starcraft

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Protoss VO

The story behind the quote: The quote comes Blizzard’s incredibly successful Starcraft. The game is about a war between the colonizing Terrans, the xenomorphic Zergs and the highly evolved Protoss races. The general goal of the game is to build up resources to enable your chosen race to amass an army to wipe out the opposing group. Each race has different strengths and weaknesses. For example, the Protoss forces are generally strong but it takes a long time to build a unit. The Zergs are the opposite; it takes a short time to amass a huge army but they generally have low health. The Terrans provide a nice middle ground between the two.

The quote comes from when you control the Protoss and you attempt to construct additional units or buildings without having the required number of “pylons,” which the Protoss need to power up their buildings and units.

Geek wisdom: There are going to be times when you think you have enough of something. Whether it be money or security or anything, you may suddenly realize that you lack it when an emergency arises. It’s always a good idea to “play it safe” and have a little extra just in case disaster strikes.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
