My friends are all going to crap their pants when they hear this.
Not me though. I found Starcraft boring.  :-\

Egh, I was so hoping for Diablo 3.

All I can say is thank god.  I was worried they'd ruin Starcraft with an MMO.

Now with screenshots and Video
The Starcraft 2 site is open now also.

Thumbing through the screen shots and ign updates, there seem to be some new weapons and such but,
given the competitive nature of the original, I'd venture to say this game won't be too much of a departure from what we've already seen. 
Now that I think of it, Steve did a pretty good Starcraft segment awhile back. 
It's worth digging up and listening to.

It is beautiful though. 
The new Protoss walkers look amazing;
seemingly inspired by Orson Welles's War of the Worlds.

Also, this should probably be merged with the other Blizzard thread.

yes, the segment covered games as sports and was quite good
all i can say is that for this game to be taken up by korea, it will have to be nearly perfect
though this is blizzard, to be fair every game they have made is great

OK, despite my pessimism, I'm looking forward to this.

I've seen the video, and I can't say i'm impressed.

Single-man units? What is this, the stone age?
It looks like an old style RTS with shiny new graphics, with none of the improvements made by the more rceent titles to have come out.
I think making a squad rather than just a man should be a given these days.

I bet you also have to create some sort of mining unit to get resources and plan out some incredibly long and branching tech-tree if you want a decent stab at winning.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I just hope they don't screw up the story.

I don't like 3D starcraft.
