Neat.

There's a party at my house, anyway, so we can probably have a nice little detour in the middle.

EDIT: Incidentally - I know this is total fanboy of me, but whatever - previously, Blizzard's official site has gone down in the moments leading up to their new game announcement. It happened for both Ghost and World of Warcraft. Does anyone have any reliable alternatives we would be able to turn to should blizzard go down this time around, as well?

StarCraft parties, eh?

Ergo, apparently StarCraft Legacy is a good source.

You're a sharp one, heh. I'm excited. If they announce more than one game, though I think it may just be a typo (because I like to keep my expectations low), I think the world will have a massive heart attack.

That is, if it isn't the next WoW expansion, that would create a typical heart attack.

Nephalim
05-18-2007, 11:00 AM
ProductS only means products, not necessarily games. It could mean anything. Books, the TCG, etc.

I doubt they'd announce two games at once. It would make more business sense to announce them one at a time, even if those announcements are just a few months apart.

Kerrah
05-18-2007, 11:24 AM
If they do announce a second game, it's either a new franchise or a new Diablo.

Aldrius
05-18-2007, 02:00 PM
Or a new StarCraft: Ghost.

Hehe... StarCraft 2 the card game.

Kenzuki
05-18-2007, 02:26 PM
My money is on Starcraft II. Though I hope for another Diablo game as well.

Nephalim
05-18-2007, 05:20 PM
Actually, if they WERE to be announcing Starcraft: Ghost, announcing a second, totally new title might be a good idea.

Aldrius
05-18-2007, 05:28 PM
Yeah, I meant StarCraft: Ghost would be the second title. If it were StarCraft 2.

Atleast that's what I'd hope. :P Tie everything up with a nice bow.

That would be awesome, Ghost seemed like a pretty kick ass game, the ability to call down a Battlecruiser and aim his Yamoto cannon was freaking sweet.

3:10 - Terran reapers - can hop across unever terrain with jump packs - two types of small pistols that don't activate immortals. Protoss now have the ability to create shields whereever they want. Protoss can now warp in units from manufacturing facilities anything within pylon range. New protoss unit - stalker - can teleport - quadripedal thing - can keep blinking forward - seems to be a shot cooldown on the ability. Zerg start coming in, giant worms pop out of ground unleasing zerglings. Protoss can use phase fields and teleporting abilities to create an army anywhere on the battlefield, according to Blizzard.

Jumper units.....i wonder how the graphics in the game are?

"StarCraft 2 - Protoss are Overpowered!"

"called a protoss mothership - can only have 1 at a time - cost big resources - special abilities include timebomb that slows all enemy missiles inside - shows terran missle launcher shooting in projectiles that stop in the field before they reach the ship - when field ends missiles drop the ground - planet cracker attack - giant lasers stream from ship to ground - ship can be moved around while planet cracker laser is active - the ship looks like a metallic, triangular sand dollar - mothership can create a black hole anywhere it wannts to - creates distortion that actually sucks ships in and destroys them - in the demo the black hole destroyed four terran battle cruisers in about ten seconds."

ScytheRexx
05-19-2007, 12:27 AM
3:23 - now showing terran and protoss fight - marines and zealots clashing on the ground - mothership and battle crusers in the air - framerate seems relatively stable as more units stream in - hard to tell - about 100 units on screen right now - a few of the new protoss units just came in - nuclear launch detected warning - every unit on screen destroyed - three nukes were launched at once - then zergs rush in and spell "GG" while turning into suicidal bombs.

Holy shit....

This new engine must be made of gold.
