Anyone else here excited about this? I mean.. this will be a complete turn, in the history of gaming as we know it. RTS has been lifted to a new level. IF you haven't yet seen the new editor they've made for SC 2 I highly recommend you to visit Gametrailers.com and watch the video where they show you what you can do, WITHOUT using special coding systems!
Anyhow, since I'm a Star Craft fan and has always been, I decided to pre-order it today (yah, new date today - 04:10 am is the time here right now). I've been playing the closed BETA for a while now as well as trying the pirate copies where you play Single Player Skirmishes, only, against badly programmed AIs. Anyhow, I like the game, good graphics, awesome physics, cool new units, sweet looking Story Mode/Campain. And on top of it all, this will be released in a 3-CD package. They are releasing the first one July 27th - 'Wings of Liberty' which is the Terran (humans). The Zerg Part will be the next one, at least that what they announced on the E3 09. The Protoss Part will be released as well, eventually. Although, they are planning to release the two other parts next year, I think they'll hang on to one of them, if not both, for another year and make some special tweaks. Anyway, the parts works as a regular game except for the campain part. You will only be able to play the Terran campain on 'Wings of Liberty'. But when playing online, through Battle.net, or skrimish, you'll be able to choose between all three races; Terran, Zerg and Protoss.
For thos who haven't yet tried it out, I highly recommend a second thought about pre-ordering, or at least buying it after the release, so you like every other RTS/Star Craft fan, can see what an amazing game it really has become.
10 years has passed since the release of Brood War, and it's still a best seller series all over the world
