I wish that Blizzard would spend more time on making games rather than pretending to make movies.

Well, when you've got a money powerhouse like World of Warcraft, and hundreds of thousands of fans still playing starcraft (and lesser so, but), Warcraft III and Diablo II, making a new version didn't really mean more customers. Starcraft is almost 10 years old, and people are still running it on 10 year old machines. That's part of why it is so popular.

I wish they added a new race (i.e. the protoss/zerg hybrids mentioned in brood war).

Excellent. More reason to upgrade my PC other than obtaining 333 FPS in Call of Duty 2.

My question was rhetorical. I agree. I sincerely admire the company. Can't think of many equal to or even approaching Blizzard's consistent mega-hit track record.

I never played WoW. I scared of losing my early thirties to it.

Good point, I am looking forward to that. Once the press buzz softened last fall, it slipped off my radar.

Wait. Hasn't this been done like three times before?

Hopefully they do not decide to add another race. That screwed CnC Tiberium Wars for me. It's quite fun, but not pure CnC. And now I want some pure Starcraft

Aww, I hope they'll soon announce a release date so we'll be able to preorder at Amazon *g*

Oh my goodness. I heard from one of my friends today that they're going to use binaural technology. Wonder if it's true. Probably not.

They said they won't... hopefully in an expansion down the line...

No new races? So I guess all of those hybirds (on "many, many worlds" no less) just vanished into nothing?

yep.

One burning question that Rob Pardo was eager to squelch concerned the long-rumored fourth race (the Xel'Naga or the Zerg/Protoss hybrids hinted at in the first game). He stated in no uncertain terms that there will be no fourth race in StarCraft II. The game will contain the Human, Zerg and Protoss factions and the team is completely focused on getting them as asymmetric yet balanced as possible. The game will also ship with a powerful map editor and should be even more moddable than the first.

Well, that's lame, and stupid. I can see how it would be difficult to rebalance the whole game because the addition of a fourth race, but they could have at least featured it in story mode.
