    So with the RPG elements of the single player you're going to have to pick and choose what upgrades you get for what units?

    I am so going all infantry upgrades. Gonna have Firebats shooting Marines that shoot bullets that are on fire.

    if you're downloading the update patch and there's an option to disable P2P, you can cut your d/l time drastically

    i'm impressed that they took the time to incorporate SC1 history lesson in the installer. most games just have some generic art or 'tips' while installing

    I actually didn't make it through all of the slides because the installation went so quickly. It's good to know that this silly computer I upgraded to was worth it.

    I had an account with 2500 games. And a couple more with a couple hundred on them each.

    And those were only recorded games, most of my games happened on UMS settings for that ghetto SC1 observer mode.

    D:

    I'm not entirely convinced. I played about 6-8 hours a day 5+ days a week for four or five years. I dunno how many games that was. Most of them were UMS, so my melee skill was never that good, but I was in high school /jr high and I hated people, so I played a lot of BW.

    Uh.

    Fine you win.

    How the hell can you play 40 hours a week of UMS, I don't know. And we're talking SC1

    He used to compete with the top players in big Brood War tournaments, he's eased off the professional gaming since then though. He's still a very high skill level player.

    He was just recently in a tournament. I imagine he'd still be playing professionally if he weren't making such fame off of just casting.

    He was a legitimate player. Not an example of, "If you can't do, teach."

    I've downloaded the digital version client and have finished installing the game into my PC's hard drive. However, the installer is in the process of downloading a patch, and nothing's happening .. I'm feeling very nervous at the moment.

    The problem is that my mobo is like 8 years old. Other stuff isn't so terribly out of date but that just kills me every time.

    Just beat the first 2 missions. Need to go to bed now.

    But so happy to have it within my grasp at last.

    Also, the cutscene graphics are insanely good looking. There was a point in the cinematic after the first mission where it zoomed in on a fly, and the fly looked like...a real fly. So pretty.

    i'd imagine if you were in person at the event, you could at least eat, play some diff video games, and nerd out about SC all night long

    but the stream is pretty boring with this France stuff, some good and some bad casters, and filler stuff. the marine/thor game engine GLHF.tv part was good though

    I just got back from picking up a few groceries at Wal-mart after work, and I saw them take the shrink wrap of the Starcraft 2 display. I look behind me in line and there are twelve guys standing behind me, each with a copy in hand. Twelve. Thats crazy for the middle of nowhere Iowa. I'll be really curious to see the first week sales numbers. I expect the Blizzard parking lot to be paved in gold.

    I really like the voice acting in the campaign. Blizzard has always been known for their great voice acting for games, but I think they outdid themselves with this. I especially like Tychus' actor.
