Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
Jacked up and good to go!

I'm excited, probably one of the most iconic games of my gaming history (along with Freespace 2 and Jedi Knight), i hope they don't butcher the Seoul...ahem, soul...of this game.  despite all the advancements and improvements to realism, some games are almost required to be old school.  EA got it right (an amazing feat i say!) with C&C3, making all the right improvements, but keeping the soul of the Command and Conquer games intact.  I hope blizzard does likewise and keeps SC2 an expansion to its roots, and doesn't try to rewrite the book.

...and at the very least the cut scenes are going to be awesome...lol

Well only thing I would change is make it more interesting than the original.  :P

I really hope they take and use the story they made for the Dark Origins level.

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
Eh. Based on IGN's gameplay video it doesn't seem like the gameplay has moved on much at all.

Yes, and Starcraft's gameplay was so underdeveloped, so poorly tweaked.

The only thing I didn't like in SC was that you could only select 12 units at once.

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
Yeah, that was an attempt to combat rushing. Everything else was pretty much perfect. I'll be quite satisfied if they just copy the gameplay with new graphics and finish the story.

According to my online SC experience, it was greatly ineffective.

Makes me wonder how powerful rushing would have been though, if it hadn't been for that artificial obstacle.

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
YES! Ha! This is great! It has finally happened!

I am most excited about this.  :D

Story specifics are still being kept under wraps, though from the concept art it seems Kerrigan will somehow be involved.

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
Well, on one of the liveblogs covering the event (IGN's, I think) say that there isn't going to be the max unit selection this time.

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
I'm really pleased with what I'm seeing and really excited to finally see it come.  I think Blizzard is doing the right thing here...they aren't going to change much in terms of how it plays and focus on really impressive unit dynamics and overall balance of the three different sides.  Still room in the market for classic RTS games!

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
Well I was a Total Annihilaton player back in the day so maybe i am biased but the gameplay footage doesn't really knock my socks off, especially compared to DoW which is getting to be a couple years old now.  Doing a little research and watchng some of the old Starcraft actually seems like 40K only the Space Marines are hicks.

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
Heh, just checked out the main blizzard site. One big sign: "Starcraft II - Hell, it's about time.". I quite agree (as does the marine in the trailer), and I can't wait to get my hands on this :)

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
Nice I have always liked Starcraft more then the warcraft series, the CGI was really good although I really didnt get what it was all about but it looked good.
