    Still playing the old starcraft and i check gamestop and starcraft 2 realeases tommorow. Been waiting for a long time.
    Just wondering how many people are going to buy it/pre-ordered it at their local gaming store.
    Im planning to buy it soon but not on the release date.

    I have it pre-ordered and I'm going to a midnight release party. But I don't think you'll find much interest for Starcraft 2 on here. I created a thread for it a couple of weeks ago and only one person replied to it, me.

    This is a pirating forum. Majority of the people here would probaby pirate it, if they even know it's existence.


    As for me, I'm buying it on the midnight launch myself.

    I won't buy or pirate it. Just doesn't appeal to me.

    I ordered it a month ago, and it's gonna be delivered today! Too bad I can't play it until tomorrow though, freaking Blizzard. [​IMG]

    Uhh... I never heard of StarCraft. Is it good? I'm just too darn lazy to Google it. (Also playing DQ9 right now.)

    It's an RTS that's been around for 12 years made by Blizzard. There's still millions that still play it, but the sequel is coming out tomorrow.

    Never played Starcraft before, I played Age of Empires 2 at that time.
    That's also a fantastic game, I still play it regularly on the PC, 10 years after it's been released!
    I even played it today, against my nephew [​IMG]

    I'm gonna pirate this one to see what all the fuss is about.

    You can pirate it, but you won't see what the fuss is about because you won't be able to log into Battle.net with a pirated copy. And before you say it, no, hackers won't figure out a way. Starcraft 1 has been around for 12 years and the only way to play in Battle.net is to buy a copy.

    I can't wait.

    Zerg is still so much fun to play after all these years; even with the minor and major changes.

    I'm going to really try to like Zerg this time around.

    By the way, THIS is why the Koreans are so good at Starcraft. They get to play before everyone else!

    The SC2 release party was awesome! Not really, but I have the game now.

    It's weird though, there aren't any pieces or a game board or anything. I'm used to board games coming with more stuff than this. Also the music CD that it came with doesn't work. Can someone help?

    Purchased my copy. Got a free hat out of it.


    I'll play it in August.

    And what's so special about Battle.net? Isn't that just an online multiplayer lobby?

    Ok, now that this is out, please Blizzard, give us Diablo 3 already, people want it more.

    Hmm, I'd take the time to explain it to you, but I'm too busy playing on the awesome Battle.net!

    Actually Starcraft is one of the best games ever made. It actually set the bar for all games falling under the RTS genre. Those who played the 1st Starcraft will actually agree with me on this one.

    Imagine being able to control 1 of three playable races with their own different units and structures and surprisingly, those three races are equally balanced(kinda redundant) in aspects of defense and power.

    I'd definitely buy this as all Blizzard games are really good!
