almost everything look the same,

new stuff
better graphic
some new units, and tweaked old units
new story, i wonder if it will start of where Brood Wars left.

i feel a little disappointed, but i hope it will be gone when Starcraft 2 come close to its release

I think it's (pulls up site) Tychus Findlay. I'm hoping for a Raynor and/or Zeratul return myself, since Kerrigan is sure to be included.

Now Artanis' "I know it's not 3-D!!" quote won't hold water, although it's still Warcraft 3 in space. :)

Simultaneous Mac version release in the works as well, which falls nicely into my plans for a Macbook Pro this October/November (yup, aiming for Leopard).

Kinda lame that they increased the size of the nuke target painting, but I'm sure they're ironing out all the details.

Edit: I'm told they're anticipating a release sooner than other game releases suggest, which, knowing Blizz, means it'll come out in at least a year. Still, it looks like they've started out from the ground up and made damned sure that everything was stable by now, so all they have to do is tweak game rules and maybe some graphics/sound before release.

anyone checked the zealots attack video?
seems Blizzard fixed the issue when you go to attack that they dont line up behind each other. i wonder how this will be for the marins and especially zerglings ^^

This looks great in 3D, but I wonder if that neat game grapics will effect the game play speed? I mean, it does matter on your computer, but the game it's self will take a heavy toll on any computer. It's basiclly the same only for a few minor changes and the better grapics though.

Edit: I've seen some "download starcraft" and other adds like that, could those be some illegal rom types of games? The adds seem to apear based on what we say here. This might not be nothing, but I'd thought that I should say something just in case.

That's Google Ads. If they've placed the site on their sponsored sites list it is supposedly a legal on-line distribution. If not, they can deal with the copyright issues. And yes, Google Ads advertises in accordance to keywords used on the page the ad is placed on, so if we were talking about flowers, a link to an online florist would most likely appear.

It does bring up the question as to whether we should be using Google Ads or not, but that's a separate debate.

I wouldn't worry about it. But thank you for pointing it out. :)

As for the 3D stuff, if the hardware is up for it there shouldn't be any lag. Of course, sod knows just how good one's hardware has to be (I know mine isn't, which I'm kinda annoyed about, but still).

And it's like what 10 years later. People called me a loser for fantasizing about Starcraft 2. They said it would never happen. I always knew this day would come.

I'll gladly take a graphical enhancement of SC over adding something strange like a hero system. Don't get me wrong, I liked it in Warcraft 3, but I don't think it'd work well in SC D:

I finally saw a gameplay vid last night, and it looked soooo smooth. I just hope it runs that way on my system too :)
