    Call me an obsessed nerd but I'll be at my local gamestop at 12AM this week to pick up my copy!

    We have a points system at work for taking unplanned time off. I'm half tempted to spend some just to enjoy the game for a day icon_twisted.gif

    Anyone else picking up a copy the same night, or in the near future?

    Some screenshots:

    I'm afraid of what Blizzard may have done to this.. I may wait a short while to hear if they stuck to true Starcraft essence or if they just turned it into a warcraft mod..

    I don't know if they could possibly one-up themselves but I'm eager to see icon_smile.gif

    I haven't played the first one, and I'm more of a Warcraft person, but who knows, maybe I'll like it.

    I'll probably end up picking it up on release day (though not at 12am). If anyone needs an easy target on battle.net let me know! I'm pretty awful online...icon_cry.gif

    Played beta... Made it to rank #2 platinum... But it's whack as hell, not as tactical as broodwar. I'll stick with BW.

    I keep hearing it is just a refreshed original Starcraft with better graphics and a continued storyline.

    I really hope that holds true. I'd hate to see Blizzard ruin this game the way EA ruined Command & Conquer 4.

    StarCraft II unit sales could reach 7 million in Activision Blizzard's current fiscal year, generating $350 million in sales for the publisher and $171 million in operating profit, analyst Mike Hickey with Janco Partners said in a Friday research note.

    Got it at the midnight launch here in NYC. Have to say the game is pretty amazing. Haven't done too much PvP yet but the Campaign is everything I could have hoped for after waiting 10 years. Much more of a RPG/RTS mix than just a pure RTS.
