Thread: StarCraft 2 was announced 10 years ago today!

    Default StarCraft 2 was announced 10 years ago today!

    Can you guys believe it? I'm feeling both old and nostalgic right now :O

    I remember staying up until 3 AM on a school night to watch the reveal, or at least see some screenshots and have the confirmation that it was SC2.

    Given all the times I've read on the battlenet forums and its criticisms, I'm willing to bet there'd be those who'd now say it would have been better had Blizzard never announced it in the first place.

    Damn, that was back in the day, I remember being so excited, I also remember having a game informer magazine that showed some of this stuff too.

    all that hope, positivity and optimism ...

    And then the games came out

    I should've known something was off when there were no Arbiters anywhere.

    Gawd, that gameplay reveal trailer. So much hype! It was actually good.

    You seriously judged it all off that?

    I heard about the game from a guy who knew someone who worked at Blizzard. I was excited for all of two minutes, when then I realized it could never possibly meet the expectations we had for the game.

    And then it came out.

    Yeah.

    Huh, it met my expectations. It's just that I didn't actually want it to...
    Yes, that's right! That is indeed ME on the right.

    Then you must have had a very low bar, Tura.
