Oh C'mon, you're not serious are you?
Pre-ordering SC2 gives you beta keys.
More beta players = more pre-order, at least there's a correlation, even tiny bit.
the players has been growing like crayzee since the date is announced. at least that's positives, and at price nearing 52wk low, I think I am ready to get in next week.
IMO, SC2 can be a new CONSOLE. The galaxy editor can create any game you want, from racing, mario kart, 3rd person shooter, to rpgs.
Modders will create the maps/games, and the maps/games run on SC2 CONSOLE.
The question is what CAN'T the galaxy editor create.
Yeah, this is actually a huge wild card. People will be able to create their own games off of this editor and sell them for profit. Think of it like the app store. The question remains though how successful it will be.
I have heard some very positive things about it lately, as people learn more about it.
I never post on this board. I do own this stock.
Can you let me know what you think of this game?
On Amazon the game is like ranked from 1 to 4. And the game is not cheap. Starcraft seems like it is a drug:)
I have played over 200 games, 50 1vs1 matches and about 150 2vs2 matches.
The game is extraordinarily polished to be in beta mode. It is for all intents and purposes a complete game right now and could be released tomorrow. What they are working out is the balancing issues. Each patch tweaks a couple of units.
Compared to the original Starcraft it is just as fun, if not a better game. It builds on the same core concepts that made the other great, with a few new strategies and units. Ive had a lot of fun with it so far. Here are a couple of youtube videos I made from replays of games (not much, still learning how to do it):
