[B]Genre:[/B] Real-Time Strategy [RTS]

[I]"At this point, it's too early to provide an initial estimate on the release date. As with all Blizzard games, we will take as much time as needed to ensure the game is as fun, balanced, and polished as possible."[/I]

Wikipedia says 2008, but that is an estimate...and as with all things, should be taken at a grain of salt.

After a long, long, [I]long[/I] wait (as in, a nine year one), the long awaited sequel to one of the most popular, most highly modded, and most highly praised games ever created, [I]Starcraft 2[/I], has finally been announced.

A high amount of new features are being introduced for the galactic saga; that we can be sure of. But so far, we know of only a few...

[list]
[*]Havok physics engine
[*]New units and new abilities for the returning ones
[*]Amazing graphics that give a more cinematical feel to the game
[/list]

I played the first right before I entered High School, and I remember every moment of the rollercoaster ride. I can hardly wait for SC II.

Discuss!

AMAZING! Wow, I've been waiting forever for Blizzard to make it official, and they finally got around too it! The vids look amazing, just incredible; the graphics are [i]sick[/i] and some of those new units look out-of-this-world sweet!

Those gameplay vids were just spectacular, it's like watching a really awesome sci-fi movie! The Protoss look completely different and the Terran are as cool as always, though I havn't seen much of the Zerg as yet. Oh man it's going to be so awesome! Korea must be going crazy right now![/COLOR]

[FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I've been playing a lot of Starcraft recently on Battle.net. I was wondering if any Otakus here still play on battle.net and if they'd like to join me in battling evil.

For the sake of discussion, anyone here excited about Starcraft II?

My battle.net ID changes a lot. My current one is Dr.Manhattan. Feel free to hit me up on battle.net. [/FONT]

Ive been waiting forever for this game i cannot wait for it to come out. I went to Blizzcon and grabbed some starcraft 2 shirts as well as saw a sneak demo of it which was awesometacular. As soon as that game comes out it'll be another 2-4 years of hermitism....at least haha.

[font="Tahoma"][color="#696969"]It's here! It's finally here! I would've posted in this thread earlier but I was playing too much Starcraft 2 to care! Please tell me there are other Otakus out there that got this wonderful, RTS masterpiece.

Blizzard completely blew all of my expectations out of the water, especially in terms of the campaign which is about 10 times longer and more detailed than Brood Wars (and that may be an understatement, it's huge). I love the new Battle.net and its features although I'm still awaiting chat rooms. Still I only really play with my friends so Party Chat works fine.

The matches are just... insane. I'll go into that when I know someone else here plays but I will say that I play Zerg and if you can't deny my rush at the beginning it's GG. :) Consequently it's a lot easier to rush with Terran now too (Reaper rush can be just as deadly, if not more, than a Zergling rush).[/color][/font]

[font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]My room mate, obnoxious jerk that he is, has purchased this game [finally] because he was too lazy to jump on the beta train.

That being said, because he has a 'hearing' problem he plays with the sound all the way up. Is there, do you know, a way to get rid of the flavor text that is spewed every time he makes a single action? If I hear those idiot space marines say "you can count on me!" one more time, I may reformat his hard drive with vinegar and rubbing alcohol.
