A week from the launch of SC2...and I still can't decide.
A week from launch...but don't know if I want to buy.
A week from launch...AHHH forget it.
Starcraft is a game that has filled up the majority of my pc gaming teen years but now 12 years later the sequel is coming and I can't decide if I want to get something so highly anticipated. I loved SC and SC:BW but this newest iteration has me on the fence.
Why you might be wondering? Well couple of reasons I will declare which are good and bad then some are more like the wait and see type since we know more patches will come after launch when the public starts getting its hands on it.
My first reason is 12 years later and all we get is the TERRAN CAMPAIGN?! 60 bucks of my hard earned money, because I'm no middle class American by far. I would of wanted the other 2 factions as well to complete the story 12 years later but for them to cut it off with the Terrans for now, and give us the other sides of the grand story later in expansions doesn't make me pleased.
Next up on the list is the new units...some are good they shore up early SC1 faction weaknesses that even brood war didn't fix. Beta testing for this game has been awesome but it's also given me the time to see things that were awesome early on get thrown out due to imbalances instead of worked in somehow.
Real ID has been a controversy and as of now in the beta it's still there but it's not working in the form they originally wanted...yet. If you give out your email people get to see your name but for now in beta you can just add their aliases, from score screens and it says you can do it from profile pages but I haven't been able to figure that one out. I would spend more time on this and say all I want to say but it's been debated to death in my opinion and I can summarize my wanting Real ID and my real name going out there in one word, No.
Starcraft 2 is a game I really want to own come July 27th but the mess of it all has me in observer mode rather than impulsive purchase mode.
