Windows 7: StarCraft II - Midnight Release

StarCraft II - Midnight Release

So I waited up last night to pick up my copy of StarCraft II. Out of the 50 or so people in the store, I think only one was older than me, and I'm only 31. I'd be willing to bet most of the kids in there never saw or played the original. Anyway, I'll be looking forward to playing it after work tonight. Not that I am bashing consoles (I have a Wii and a 360), but it is nice to see a PC (and Mac) exclusive title get so much attention.

I looked at it but checking the system requirments requires a broadband connection. Oh I have one, but this looks like another case of DRM.

I actually picked up StarCraft II myself today. A bunch of guys at work are going to be playing it and I thought it would be fun to actually have something on my computer that I might use quite a bit and get some enjoyment out of this machine.

I do think that you need a broadband connection..as you have to have a Battlenet account in order to register and activate the game.

That's all fine to register the product, but I want to know if a constant connection is required or can you play the game off line.

I bought Star Craft 1 when it was first released

I tried it, played quite a few levels but never finished it. I just never really got into it. In fact I still have the original game (ver 1), as well as a guide book.

At some point in time I might give ll a try out of curiousity.

Do let us know how it goes.

Thanks

I played the original Starcraft and the expansion all the way through. My understanding of Starcraft II is that it is online only. Is that right?

Well, when you launch the game....it requires you to logon with your battlenet account....so this makes me think that you will need to have an internet connection to actually play the game.

I won't be buying SCII for a long time.

They decided to release this ONE game as three instead. Apparently the campaigns are being released as expansion packs.
As far as I am concerned, that is pure extortion. The original SCI had all three campaigns on ONE game, with NO need for an expansion pack except to add MORE campaigns. Here they decided to wring it out due to the popularity.
