| Well, after 10 years of waiting, there seems to be some buzz about this actually existing. Normally I try to keep myself in check about getting too excited about something like this, seeing as how its pretty much fake all the time, but in this case I think it might actually be true.
I dont think anything else needs to be said about this. If you know what Starcraft and Brood War are, then nothing needs to be said. If you dont know either of them, it would be hard to explain why this is such a huge deal. Like I said though, This game is about 10 years old now, so I wonder how many people here actually remember this game coming out...Man I feel old now...

Click and bask in the glory that is SC2. Not much there right now, but man my mind is already working out how the Phase Prism changes things. Also, it looks just so damn pretty!

| woah this game looks seriously wicked. I never played the first Starcraft, but any of my friends that have played it pretty much never shut the hell up about it.
Can't wait till it comes out!!

| The thing that hooked me on SC was the map editor. It just made so many fun maps to play aside form the melee ones. It helped out even more when I began to make my own as well, though back then my screen name was Omega12. Yeah I know, I am very imaginative when it comes to making screen names...
Anyway, the best part about this was I slowly became rather skilled at making Madness maps. And trust me, such a simple game is NOT easy to make. The amount of balance work involved is just ugh... Well, anyway, turns out I can back up this claim. I made a madness map that people actually played! By that I mean I would see my map on the list of custom games made by people I didnt know. Its just so awesome to see that.
Anyway, out of randomness, and to partly scare some of the people who dont know about SC, here is the list of units for each race.
Terran: SCV, Marine, Firebat, Ghost, Medic, Vulture, Siege Tank, Goliath, Wraith, Science Vessel, Battlecruiser, Valkyrie, Dropship, Nuke (if you really count this as a unit...), Spider Mind (Again if you count it)
Zerg: Drone, Zergling, Hydralisk, Ultralisk, Mutalisk, Overlord, Lurker, Infested Terran, Queen, Broodling, Defiler, Guardian, Devourer, Scourge
Protoss: Probe, Zealot, Dragoon, High Templar, Archon, Dark Templar, Dark Archon, Reaver, Scarab(If you count it), Dropship, Observer, Scout, Carrier, Intercepter(If you count it), Arbiter, Corsair
I think thats everything. I feel as if I am forgetting some obvious unit for each one...Oh well, it was only off the top of my head anyway. Yeah...I have played a lot of SC over the years, but hey its been out for like 10 years. Plus I tend to remember random crap for long lengths of time...
Oh and a Marine costs 50 minerals, takes 40 seconds to make, has a default attack of 6, with three upgrades it gets 9, default armor of 0 with upgrades to 3, 40 HP and a range upgrade along with stim packs. I like Marines! So what!

|lol Omega the SC guru. I'm def getting this game when it comes out O_O. They didn't give a release date did they? I get the feeling it was posted somewhere obvious on teh site but i just happened to miss it a couple hundred times...|

|Nah, they havent given one out yet. I guess it will be at the end of the year though. Its the largest shopping time of the year and seeing what I have seen on the site it cant possibly be all that far off, but who really knows?|

|Oh and they added a new Terran unit to the site. Finally, some damn air to ground power for Terrans...|

|I just bought Starcraft and the expansion a few days ago. What's so different about brood war compared to the original SC other than the single player missions?|
