    This forum is worthless. Starcraft II has been officially announced at 3am (its now 4:30 am east coast time) in Korea, and nobody made a thread about it yet. Well, here it is....

    Article from IGN:

    To see that they're really bringing it back, hopefully without butchering it up, makes me feel all hyper. I'm falling face to face with my childhood again, and it looks fantastic. Oh man, I'm thinking of all the hours and nights I've wasted on that game.... damn, I can't do it again without wrecking my studies and my social life... well I guess thats too ****ing bad. [​IMG]

    And look at the units! They're all SHINY! like toys! like awesome toys made of awesome CANDY! HAHA!

    Cool, I love the new map setting on the asteroid. Which is just like the space station, but with dirt. But still. :)

    haha, at blizzard's homepage:

    "SCII: Hell, its about time"


    Damn right :)

    "Hell, it's about time."

    I've been waiting for this forever! Finally it will be coming out! No more rumors anymore, it's official!

    Can't wait, trailer was awesome.

    2008 will be a fun year for SC fans.

    Holy crap!

    The FAQ was really ambiguous.. half the answers are "We won't know until we get closer to the release date."

    Yeah, that's what I thought too. And it seems like a lot of overpowered ideas for the Protoss. I hope Blizzard doesn't make SC unbalanced, or I'll nuke hem.

    Hell, it was about time indeed.

    --Edit--

    Check www.starcraft2.com

    Geez, I love that freaking cinematic trailer :D

    --2nd Edit--

    Eh, obvious :p

    Overpowered ideas for the protoss at the moment. They haven't released squat about what the other races can do, except maybe one or two new units.

    I love the zerglings, really looks how they did in the original clips where you saw them zerg that one marine lolz.

    They aren't really that OP, they have their weaknesses. I'm sure what blizz has got for the other 2 races will be the same.

    War3 was the game I've played for so long time and as newer, was way better than SC&BW even though I like hi-tech&futuristic RTS more, SC couldn't replace war3. Now I'll be moving to SC2 hoping that it will be as exciting to make me play it for years as war3 was. I just love futuristic games and strategies and this has so cool terrain that SC2 is futuristic, the newest and with better graphics and with the same camera as war3's. All in this game. I expected different units... so those who've played SC solo will use the same strats and units, I thought this was goona be new for all but it isn;t. Well war3 skill can apply to SC2 too, so let's see who's the boss :>

    I'll buy it as soon as it is realeased, so any date when it will be in the shops worldwide?

    As far as I know, this is mostly a teaser. Likely the game won't be out anytime soon, I doubt a date has even been set. You know how Blizzard is.

    All I'm saying is for the love of God they better not pull an SC:Ghost on this one.

    Blizzard haven't set a date. In fact, they haven't released that much information, although it is interesting to see how far in development it all looks.

    Yeah, the game engine seems to be up and online, with plenty of interesting work done on the units and such. I wonder if they're mostly working on spell mechanics and bug correction and such?

    Wonder when they'll release a demo, lol.

    Now that the gag order has been lifted, I guess it wouldn't hurt if I supplied some information. Information I have gathered from unofficial sources hints at a beta release for testing sometime in the fall, with any luck they maybe able to get it out by christmas. Though we all know Blizzard I would put money on an official release being spring to early summer of 2008 if they fail on their expected timeline. Now once again I stress this is outsider information and hear say, I can neither confirm or deny any of this information.
