StarCraft II

Postby Al Calnos » Sat May 19, 2007 1:06 am

This thread is for discussing the sequel to the most awesome RTS game of all time, StarCraft.

StarCraft II was announced on May 19th at Blizzard's World Wide Invitational in Seoul, South Korea. At that moment millions of gamers rejoiced and even more Koreans soiled their pants in unison.

This is StarCraft II's official website.
www.starcraft2.com

Another good source of SC info is a fansite called StarCraft: Legacy. Lots of fun info to be found there.
www.sclegacy.com

No flaming, no whining, just rejoice how awesome this game will be. Can't wait for it. :)

Cool, I suppose. I knew it would happen eventually, but i'm not going to get overexcited. I hate when a company does bullshit hype stunts like this and thinks they can do no wrong. Even Blizzard can, and very well might.

The game looks pretty good, but i'm not sure if it looks 10 years later good. It's all a bit glowy, and I sort of preferred the darker look SC1 had. When it comes down to it, how it plays and how detailed the map editor are what matters to me. Never been good at RTS games to begin with.

Yeah it's 2 hours since I read it and I still can't quite comprehend that it occured. Of course it can still get fucked up like Ghost, and that's what you're hinting, but it's a totally different Game and unlike Ghost this one is sure to earn Blizz a ton of money, so I'm sure it'll get released. And oh boy, if it's even 70% as good as the original then it'll very well be something I'll spend hours playing.

I think "Hell. It's about time." is more fitting overall for the situation. I bet later they'll have videos with those kind of things said.

If Wikipedia hasn't been edited by some 13 year-old, They've apparently been working on it since WCII: Frozen Throne! The sneaky bastards...

I don't think there is a worry in this game being released. It's pretty sure to... it's just a matter of when.

It's not like they have been delaying and delaying a release date for it, they have just been working on other stuff.

Starcraft is possibly the best balanced RTS of all time. It will be very interesting to see how well they manage it a second time.
