"Sweet mother mercy!"
Game of the year.. Y'all buying it?
copping tomorrow for sure.
i still play way too much wc3 on bnet, if anyone gets down on that.
Hell yeah. Dunno how much time I'll have to play though, I didn't touch much of the beta the last 2 months. Knamelis is sorta beastly with this shit but I think he's in the same boat as me.
How dare you insinuate that i... Knamelis... King of all things cool... Would ever do such an uncool thing as be incredibly good at an rts game dominated mainly by waifish korean manboys?!?
I would never do such a thing but if i were to do such a thing i would probably use a screen name very similar to my rap name and i would probably be within the top 10 players on the platinum ladder not that i even know what that means because all i know is super cool stuff and this isnt cool like fake titties, beer, and rap.
And before you ask... Its because capital letters signify coolness... Obviously!!
haha.. that post was in all caps. Apparently this board is ALL ABOUT CENSORSHIP!!
also. fake titties SUCK. Stay away from them.
And if you did partake in such a nerdy activity you surely wouldn't let a lowly Gold leaguer such as myself take 2 games off you in a best of 5. Surely not, surely not.
Being top 10 platinum in division #6855 isn't really that impressive : (
You never stood a chance, that harass failed when ya burner jammed
Plus ya chick and I, when 6 to 9, cuz I upgraded tha Thermal Lance
Shit mine is reserved, and I'm getting midnight release.
I was top 10 in the nation back in SC1, I'll play anyone...aka Shyne

There's so many fucking Achievements in this game. Thank god I'm not a completionist, otherwise the rest of my summer would be going to that.
I got placed in Silver :*(
game of the year ....if your korean
download that shit before its removed...evrybody slept on the Madden 11 drop
i played the beta of this and tbh it just didnt impress me at all ,games have moved on a long way since sc1 and the whole idea seems dated to me now
In what sense have games "moved on a long way"? Despite being 12 years old, SC1 is still unmatched in terms of balance and depth. I understand that certain games have made "progress" in the genre, but really, these changes are mainly superficial and don't add any strategic depth. SC1 remains the archetypal competitive RTS. It only makes sense that SC2 tries to build upon its formula rather than add unnessesary bells and whistles.
This, however, applies more for hardcore players I suppose (I wouldn't really consider myself one). For casual fans, its hard to say how the game will tide over, but I believe the gameplay is extremely polished and already quite balanced that anyone that gets a hang of it will be hooked.
I respect your opinion though, comes down to preference.
i just mean that the rts genre has been stagnant for a long long time,there is pretty much 0 innovation in sc2 its a pretty generic sequel to me,even games liek world in conflict and dawn of war tried to do things a little diff but sc2 sticks to the exact same blueprint the original had. i wish they had done more really.there is nothing in this game i have not done 50000 times before in other games and it just dosnt give enough reason to dedicate the time needed to it,if it wasnt called starcraft i doubt anyone would even notice the game
Yeah, I understand what you mean. I think sticking to the blueprint was absolutely necessary though. Blizzard wants the game to be successful as an "E-Sport" in the same way that the original one was, but more on an international level (rather than just in South Korea). With the beta we already saw numerous high-level tournaments as well as a couple with prize pools of several thousand dollars. The speed at which high-level play was established is a testament to polished game design, in my opinion.
Personally, I think the core concept of the game (which, as you mentioned, has remained virtually unchanged) is basically perfect. The game itself is not without flaws, but if Blizzard had implemented newer concepts like a cover system, or overextended themselves in attempting to innovate, SC2's potential as an E-Sport would have been destroyed. Changes like unlimited unit selection, multi-building selection, and auto-mining were honestly just making up for oversights and limitations of the original (and even these logical progressions were contested by much of the hardcore community, lol).
Wow I'm a nerd.
it's been a long time since i played a game on a pc at all, but i loved starcraft 1
my computer probably sucks too much to run it. i also wasn't that good at the first one surprisingly...
Listen, SC2 was suppose to be pretty much the same with some new stuff and graphics. Why do you think they kept Super Street Fighter 4 the same as Super Street Fighter 2, with some new stuff and graphics. Because thats what the people want.
