Well, it is news... It's not not news until everyone has heard of it.

no like, as in like everyone who is in a computer course at my school apparently knew... since i asked 3 weeks ago and they just nonchalantly said "starcraft 2". so if like 400/1500 people know... thats pretty big leak. especially since i know not everyone cares. :rolleyes:

they announced it at the south korean starcraft tournament, or something of the sort.

and it looks like a must have for me. the first one/expansion was great. i played it for a very long time, and people are still playing it to this day.

same here, as long as it wasnt running-around-to-do-quests based! it would be awesome if they made it so that your character was customizable like the commanders on Warhammer 40K: Dark Crusade

That game would occupy me for hours to almost days if I wasn't careful when I was younger. I used to LOVE that game.

I hope this second one is just as good! I was wondering when Blizzard would release another.

There have always been three factions... Zerg, (The humans... can't remember their name), and the Protoss.

they were planning on doing something called "starcraft ghost" which i think would be first person. this idea was scrapped after years of being pushed back, and i guess they decided this would be a better idea?


and ace, the humans were just called terrans. i personally loved the protoss, but they were easily rushed by zergs. it takes a little bit of time to get strong with the protoss, so if you can live long enough you could just mass produce carriers and take an entire player out.

they probably realized they didn't have anyone who can high-res model. :rolleyes:

oh man, if you guys looked at the screenshots, you'd see a true Zerg rush. no more pairs of Zergs running at you, they look like they'll really swarm now!

Hahaha, no more stupid Zerglings that get stuck because they're too stupid to go around an object.

Boy, I miss playing SC.. Those were the days. :(

I've seen that online before... just you would have like half the guys get stuck behind the others and cancel their attacks and then get mowed down if you didn't realize they were just sitting there and paying attention to the battle closely... :doh:

Hero, I don't know how you've never been rushed by Zerg... they are notorious for GIANT swarms... A single ling is crap, but you get 20 and you'd better run for the bunkers.

Personally I loved the Zerg best. Something about the swarming, evil/monstrous look, and the ease of creating forces.

Ahhh! This is getting me in the mood to play again just for kicks. (looks around room and finds Terran foot soldier)

damn, the terrans always seemed to have the best defenses,

2 or 3 bunkers full of marines all in one spot, alon with seige tanks in seige mode plus missile turrents = zerg rush pwnage

didnt work so well against protoss rushes though

Though they may have defence... Protoss have shields lol.
