Those of us completely uninterested missed it by way of the fact we stopped paying attention to starcraft 5 minutes after starting to play it... :p

You and me both, buddy. I stayed up until they made the announcement, only to be disappointed to find out we had another resource-gathering RTS on our hands.

Not to be rude, but what were you expecting? Starcraft is a RTS game.

I never got into the first one (there were better games like Red Alert by the time I got into computer games), but I'll probably check this one out.

I was hoping for Diablo 3, Blackthorne 2, or even a Starcraft MMO. It's just that they have already released four RTS games with numerous expansions, and now they're making a fifth. Nothing against RTS games; it's just that they're not my favorite. But Blizzard has already made a boatload of them, so it was making me hope for something else.

No problem, and ditto on Diablo III. A friend and I use to play Starcraft all the time, and yes Warcraft, too. Personally, I love RTSs, and besides the graphics look cool!!!

its starcraft 2 guys....STARCRAFT2! haha..
its been 9 years since the release of the original, and its still one of the top rts's and most played. After reading around a little bit, it seems that theyre going to be sticking to the original starcraft gameplay, fast paced action, instead of following warcraft's more slower gameplay....so its gotta be good, yea? i mean, what game has blizzard released that wasn't fun and addicting?

ressurecting this thread..

Besides the no LAN support, and the fact that Blizzard is going to release 3 separate standalone games for Starcraft 2, comes news that Blizzard has officially delayed the release of the first game (StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty) will not be released until sometime 2010.

Note: the major reason given for the delay wasn't that the game wasn't ready.. but that new Battle.net wasn't ready.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
