Dustin Browder, Lead Developer of StarCraft 2, today made an effort to calm down the StarCraft 2 community. He talked about the beta, release date, battle reports and encouraged people to hang in there, saying that "we're in the final stretch".
I can't wait, I really really want this now :D
You and me both. I don't think I've ever waited this impatiently for a game - ever. :)
That's funny you should say that! I am usually quite a patient guy, and just cruise along life and seeing films, video games or comics come up at good times. This is the first time since I was a kid that I have been so emotionally invested =P Despite using the words "emotionally invested", I am quite confident in my sexuality =P
I can't wait for this game!
Good to know, feels like we've waited forever.
To be fair, I'd much rather he said "the beta is planned to come in 6 weeks" than no answer at all. I understand how they think, but it's so FRUSTRATING!
I too, but we'll have to settle for the "final stretch" comment. :)
Yes, I hope it does indeed mean the final stretch, and only a few months left to release now!
Got me into gaming. I can't wait to get my hands on Star Craft 2. This and Diablo 3 are my most anticipated PC games.
Star Craft 2 and Diablo 3 are a most for a pc gamer. HAPPY GAMMING EVERYONE:-P
Hurrah! Been looking forward to this for a LONG time.
Indeed, since clearing SC: Brood Wars o.O
There are going to be a lot of excited bunnies today :)
I personally like the added beta comment (Q3), since it gives us a small insight into how strict the NDA *might* be when the game is released.
Yeah, the question is if they will have a month or so in the start where there will be more strict rules applied to it... I mean, it's very possible that they will go with that policy all the way through, but if they start invites in small scale, they could have an embargo on info for a while first...
True. Hopefully the wait is over soon so we can stop speculating on all this!
Way back in time they used to announce release dates and such far in advance. I don't know if they have ever been able to make it in time even once. Still I am not so sure what I prefer: no dates or dates that are probably not going to hold...
wooot cant wait to get my hands on it.
We may be in the final stretch, as he says, but I still can't wait too much longer for the Beta, much less the game itself >_< It's so incredibly awesome looking O_O!
My most anticipated PC games are made by Blizzard. I just can't wait for this game to come out. I remember late nights at the office playing this game and later on Diablo 2. I also remember getting into the Warcraft 3 beta. I hope I get into this game's beta. I still remember that with one copy of Starcraft, you could play multi-player with a bunch of friends. I ends up buying a copy after playing a game or two with my friend. Diablo 2, I end up buying 2 copies, one for the office and one to play at home. Those were the days.
ZOMG!!! Blizzcon again. Game Announcement and hands-on gameplay. I'm so going.
Blizzard is one of the few PC game developers that are very well received and appreciated in the gaming community. There is no gamer that has not played either Diablo or Starcraft. I spent many nights on Battle.net solidifying my name in the starcraft world! I wish those days were still here...haha. Staying up on a school night til the wee hours of the morning becaue every game would take over an hour but you just didnt CARE! The show must go on! Diablo was kind of annoying to play when the hackers took over, but in any case it was still an amazing game. Cant wait for the next installment of BOTH games.
Final stretch sounds good, but I wonder for how long they will stay in it though.. =/ But the info about shield recharge was interesting ^^
