    Try cocaine, no major physical withdrawals, probably healthier then sitting inside all day on the computer, not joking lol (-:

    I been looking at youtube videos, game looks sweet.

    I grew up on SC, hung out with friends during and after school, then from 10 o clock or midnight on was pure Broodwar with them.

    I got a beta key and I played it a couple times but then I wiped it from my PC and probably won't buy SC2. I know i'll get addicted lol, my problem is either I don't play a game, or I have to be the best and play until I'm #1 , i rather direct that energy towards IM.

    I looked at the videos on youtube and frankly I don't see what all the fuzz is about. It looks like an updated version of the old starcraft instead of something revolutionary.

    I'm more looking forward to Mafia 2 which looks awesome from the game trailers.

    They had to balance updating the game to the graphics quality modern gamers expect whilst not alienating the core fanbase by changing the basics. Remember in South Korea their mad about this game, its a national sport. Changing the basics to much would screw would out of the hardcore fans.

    Just the story and the single player mode worth the $59.99 + tax.

    Yeah, I'm not down with waiting 11 years between chapters in the story, though. >:|

    true that, now i'm like...stuck waitng for the second chapter, hopefully they release it when i hit my 30s (i'm 28) and then final chapter when i'm in my 40s. God knows if there are any expansions....but they generally come out quicker than the full game

    Then the battlechest will come out in 15 or so years that will have all the chapters and expansions if any, in there.

    Diablo 3 better come out next year to keep me distracted...

    they even have an airbus a380? or just a 747 painted with SC2 graphics on it....

    i actually found this like 1 second ago
    http://www.dailytech.com/Starcraft+II+WOL+is+FastestSelling+Strategy+Game+Ever/article19263.htm

    "The Heart of the Swarm expansion pack, covering the Zerg single-player campaign, and the Legacy of the Void Protoss expansion are expected to launch later this year, though no precise release date has been specified, yet. Knowing Blizzard-Activision, don't be surprised if that release target slips. "

    Hopefully this is true, that means I don't need to wait til I start growing white hair.
