    The sequel to one of the most popular RTS games ever has been announced after 10 years since the release of the first game. The release date is slated for 2009. Of course, Blizzard will have unmatched online play and it even sounds like they're focusing tremendously on single player campaign. Looks like a promising sequel. I still occasionally play the original and plan to pick this up as soon as it is released.

    I've become much better at the original in the past two years and look forward to this game (these games?).

    I'm not really sure what scale I'm at but I can kill a computer or two pretty easily.

    The original Starcraft is probably my most favourite game of all time. It is in-freakin-credible and it never gets old. I am just itching to get my hands on Starcraft 2, I'm sure a lot of hours are going to be put into it on my end. Blizzard, hurry up!

    Here's a little something to get people into the Christmas mood, somewhat related to Starcraft 2 lol

    I agree Slasher. I played that game for many years and still do every once in awhile.

    That could be an idea though about us playing it, only 8 max though (lol, only 8)... :confused::D

    8 is good enough, I doubt all of us would play a once.


    Also the newer patches let you play it without the disks (provided you can copy all the files off the disks into the game folder).

    The Terran, Protoss, and Zerg campaigns are getting released as separate games. Official word is that each race campaign will be as long as the original game or brood war, so you're not getting jipped.

    Each release will also have broodwar-esq upgrades for each race for use in multiplayer.

    Interesting... I heard that it will be a trilogy (original with two expansions) but I didn't think they meant that. I'm not sure if I like that too much. I'd rather have shorter campaign's then paying for virtually the same game 3 times. Yea the stories will be different but still...

    Hmm.... not sure if I gonna like that.
    On the one hand you might end up with a huge, epic game, on the other hand you gotta pay for it three times....

    Hmm....

    I can't believe I hadn't heard about this. This is awesome. I'd still rather play starcraft over just about any of my 360 games and thats saying a lot for a game thats more than a decade old.

    Bump:
    I'm definitely buying the Terran version. ;)

    Eh, yeah I like protoss a lot too. This might be a tougher decision than I thought. I hated being zerg though. They remind me too much of the flood from the Halo series :p
