Default Starcraft II

I know I'm hopelessly idiotic for missing this for this long, but I just found the Starcraft II site! Anybody play the original? Looking forward to the next one? Hopes? Dreams? What do you want to happen?

I know I want a good Infested Kerrigan model. The last one was a blob with wings. I also want the Protoss to get a break...they seem to be getting smushed by everyone.

Hopeful Deaths:
Arcturas(?) Mengsk
That other Mengsk Guy
Samir Duran
Somebody close to Raynor. Make the story more tragic. Maybe that sniffly Lieutenant.
Edmund Duke (Is he still alive? I can't remember..)
Any Protoss opposed to Zeratul's plans, as they always seem to work.
Most of the nastier Zerg Cerebretes.
Any new Overmind

Hopeful Survivals:
Zeratul- Way too cool to die.
Raynor- The Terran hero. Will sue Blizzard if they kill him off.
Kerrigan- Far too interesting to be killed.
Tychus- The marine guy from the commercial.
Artanis- The weedy Protoss guy that replaced Fenix.

Loving the idea of a non-linear campaign, and the interactive briefings.

So, they are going ahead with it then. I was concerned that the Starcraft II project had been put on permanent hold.

I never got into it too much, but it was a lot of fun when playing with a friend.

Hell ya.
Been following it and loved the original. Can't find my CD though.

Also i may get to beta test it....I have been in the closed beta for war 3, war 3 expansion, WoW, WoW expansion, and i have made it to the friends list ensuring i get there next beta.(for wow got in on the alpha stage).
Problem is so craptastic wow expansion is coming out that holds almost no intrest for me, it will probably beta before SC2 and thus my reserved spot means nothing, and with a wife and full time job i doubt i can gain re-entry to the friends list. But should by some iricle the SC2 beta come out before wrath of the litchking i will be in it.....one can only hope.

Yeah, well the Space Marines never dropped forty thousand feet in a drop pod WITHOUT power armor.

I have every game Blizzard has ever made for PC (Except WoW because I just can't get into the mmorpg pay-as-you-go thing.)

Starcraft is one of my favorite games of all time. I'll definitely be picking up a copy of the sequel.

Any word on when it will be done? I've only seen some preliminary stuff on Blizzard's website.

A bit of threadomancy later and...

lol. I don't think they have a release date for it yet. Knowing Blizzard, somewhere around December/January. Looks sweet though.

Do we really need a new one? The original is still quality, and tbh, i've been following the info on IGN, and it looks like nothing has changed.

I like the looks of the new Protoss, they're pretty tough now. Zealots are getting a boost, and Dragoons have been replaced with Immortals (Godly upgraded) or Stalkers (Dark Templar Dragoons). And the Terran Vikings and most certainly the Thor look like fun to play with. Nothing says "Buy me!" like a huge robot and slick new Goliaths (That fly!)
