Protip: If blizzard says it is out Q2 2010 it will most likely be out Q3 2011...

but yeah, overhyped game is overhyped...
Games that are expected to be absolutely awesome, rarely are...

I dont understand how it has taken this long to take SC1 and give it a few new units, with some pretty low quality graphics honestly. I know its Blizzard's "thing" but how the shit does it take this long when it looks like that. I mean the backstory and most of the gameplay/units were already done.

I just played Starcraft for the first time last week lol.... Fun, but I suck. I like taking my time, a lot of time, with strategy games, which the ai doesnt let me do...

I agree with TimmmmaaaaH, SC2 just looks like an upgraded SC to me, and not the best potential upgrade either.... although people say you can't improve on perfection hmm 
How many new units are there? and Balancing, Sisco? How much time have they had for that? Especially with the first one being so great n such, im guessing it was well balanced...

Probably won't get as there are plenty of other games I am more interested in atm.

If the first was not balanced, it would not be regarded as "perfect" and the best RTS ever made etc.

New units I suppose, but that doesnt take however many years it has been. I am just saying new games have been made in less time than this. Not sequels.

I was just guessing lol. tongue

But I take it they tried out many new units and had to thoroughly test them, especially before the background of the first being the "perfect balanced game".

1. It hasn't been in the works for 10 years.
2. Adding any new units completely messes with balancing.
3. Being Blizzard and having unlimited funds they can choose to come up with many concepts for new units which will have been heavily playtested then possibly scrapped.
4. Again having unlimited funds they can afford to polish the fuck out of this game, tweaking GUIs and other menial things.

Theres so many reasons this game could take so long.

I honestly thing the graphics look pretty damn good.

Sure it doesn't have the crazy 3d flying camera of some modern games, but I like the view that the older games had... and it looks like SC2 does a decent job of maintaining that.

The videos posted above look kinda like crap, but on vimeo in HD it looks pretty fucking awesome.

Full screen and in HD, I see no reason to complain about graphics. Looks like they have made a lot of changes and tweeks too.

my god, complaining about graphics, that's why you don't understand starcraft.
