Hell, it's about time

There are two things I look for in a movie: tacos and explosions. If neither are in the film within 30 seconds, I do not watch it.

Well, blessed be.
In case people can't tell from the link, Starcraft 2, sequel to the classic RTS smash, has been announced today! (or yesterday, as of two minutes ago.)
I have admittedly high hopes for this game...
Just in case people were wondering, it stands for 'At The Convenience Of The Experimenter.'

And now... this!

Hell Yeah.

The trailer is awesome. I think I'll bring it to the dailies on Monday, purely for the sake of coolness. :P

The screenshots tend to look like Warcraft III with Zerg... Can anyone say Tyranid? ;D
Just because you can, it doesn't mean you should.

Unless its cool.

*shrugs* to me it looks and feels like the original Starcraft with updates in a 3D engine (clearly). Blizzard is always like that, though. They're not big on cutting edge graphics, they simply prefer to stylize their art (sort of like Team Fortress 2) which, in some cases, I have no problem with. (I detested how far they took this in Warcraft 3) I'm glad they kept the feel of the original, otherwise it wouldn't have been the same.

From some of the reading up I did, I understand that the game has been in development since 2003 (straight after The Frozen Throne came out). The multiplayer component is complete (or near complete) as well I believe.

It has the trademark Blizzard look. I'm actually happy that it has the Starcraft aesthetic, but with a bit of the Warcraft III exaggeration mixed in.

Diablo 3 probably won't happen given that the majority of the developers left Blizzard to form Flagship.

its about time they anounce it, but I'm not really hyped... it looks like it'll be a shiny starcraft, nothing revolutionary.

I think its time blizzard made something new... Lifecraft!! the new mmorpg to take the world by storm!! Why go outside when you can sit in the safety of your own home and acomplish just as much.. sometimes MORE!! who needs freinds? your LIFECRAFT TOON!! if hes lonely too long he'll become an EMO and cut himself when you log... just dont forget to level up your breathing skills.
True happiness is the realization of its presence, not its absence.
