I am ALL over this game like pimples on K2's ass..

HOLY SHIT. I've been longing for this game to come out.. even for beta..

Now I want Diablo III to come out. How fun would that be?!?

Here's to all nighters again..

ROFL! www.starcraft2.com has been activated with movies and such. I expect Diablo 3 to be 2-4 years from now. Blizzard knows how to space their games out.

Shows the new protoss units. It's definitly not the same game. A lot of the added units are meant as a counter to other units. Less zerg and more micro unit control.

The maps are all tiered maps where you have to take in elevation into consideration. A lot of drop ship, flying/blinking units etc.

The engine has been boosted to a 3d one, it also has a physics engine which is pretty nice with some of the units. Ex: the mothership's time shield will stop missiles from hitting it. Once the shield goes down all the missiles fall from the sky.

I agree, Pred.. I would LOVE D3 to come out, but SC2 would suffice..

I still want to check out the new C&C.. just haven't the time.. *sigh*

Need to start investing in a new rig. Heard Intel prices are going to start dropping here, so we'll see how that goes within this year..

Fuck the truck.. Gas prices are getting EXTREMELY ridiculous.. 2.99/G here in San Antonio..

30 dollars gives me little over half a tank.. Fuck That. Nuff said.

So I'm selling it for a Del Sol.

Cheers.

Yeah, my dad drives a really huge Ford F-350 turbo diesel, costs over 100 dollars to fill it up all the way. He ended up buying a motorcycle which gets 45-50mph that he drives all the time just to ease the pain a little bit.

Gas is $3.25/g for regular unleaded here on O'ahu (on the big island and Maui it's more like 3.75-3.80/g) - BAH!! Luckily I just bought back 1-2 extra miles per gallon on my Pathfinder after doing a full tune-up/fuel line purge. Still costs almost 60 bucks to fill up an 18 gallon tank tho.

Oh yeah, about SC2 - hmm. I'll probably check it out when it's released. Was always a fan of the first one, as it set the trend for future RTS titles to come.

Starcraft 2 can't come soon enough. the videos look awesome, and I think they are going to do well, considering teh bar that they set for themselves.
