I loved this game so much when I was teen!

If it weren't for the fact I'd be a bit Polanski, well probably more Glitter, I'd queue up :)
I used to love SC1BW as well. I look at all the youtube multiplayer games for the new SC2!

But if they had DRM, sorry, not buying it.
I'd love to go to the launch, so i could ask “oi, what is happening with Diablo III??”

good one, but have been waiting for this forever too, cant wait, reviews, youtube vids look amazing
I've got the special edition pre-ordered..love Starcraft + BW, one of my most played RTS games along with C&C.

Only 12 days to go..:) would love to be at the release but while I love SC..i'm not *that* big of a fan to trek to the capital for it.
