STARCRAFT 2

So excited. Beta was disappointing, because mostly I hate playing with other people. But I'm still excited about the campaign and playing against the computer. :)

They don't have full specs on this yet, do they? I'm pretty sure my bucket of bolts won't be able to run it. :(

Starcraft's the one Blizzard franchise that just doesn't do it for me. But that said, gotta love their cutscenes. Best in the business.

For me, it's always been Diablo that I couldn't get into. It was just never my thing.

Agreed on both parts. That said though.. I'm not sure I'm buying it. I'm rather frustrated with it on many counts.

1. Single player campaigns are being released in three stages. You have to buy the game three times to be able to play all three races.

2. You must have an internet connection and be logged in anytime you want to play, even single player.

3. NO LAN SUPPORT! My friend, my husband and I LOVE to play these kinds of games together on the LAN, and we used to get LAN parties together and stuff for these games. We should NOT have to play on battle-net when we're in the same freaking house!

The game looked pretty darn good.. And I was really really psyched for it for a long time. Still looks good other than those things... But those things are a deal breaker for me.

I too am sad there's no LAN support. I hate Battlenet in general, and think it's a good way to alienate players. But since I spend the majority of my Starcraft time just fighting the computer, I'm still interested in the game overall. But, I'm not pre-ordering it or anything. I may not even grab it on release day.

Had to look twice...I could've sworn the thing at 0:06 was the Draenei paladin from the Burning Crusade cinematic.

Oh, Kerrigan. She's one of the reasons I love StarCraft so much.
