Is anyone else looking forward as much to this as i am???

The 1st one was made in 98 and i still play it to this day! Its the most balanced entertaining RTS game ever made! Better that all the command and conquers, red alerts etc etc!

This game is also gonna have a huge impact on south korea!
Some interesting facts

.Starcraft is still the E-sport game of choice in South Korea Professional players make as much as $300,000 a year (http://www.tuftsdaily.com/starcraft-a-game-of-chess-played-at-hundreds-of-moves-per-minute-1.2210106) from tournaments and endorsements

.1 in 4 people in South Korea have played the game

.1 in 3 people in South Korea have watched a live starcraft match on T.V.

.E-athletes (as they are nick named) once they hit around the age of 25 usually retire by then due to not being able keep up with the younger faster fingered generations of upcoming gamers

.Theres a huge gambling ring that profits from Pro games of Starcraft...... alot of which are illegal and run by gangs/mobsters. with match fixing and big players taking the fall for huge payouts!!

.Starcraft became so huge in south Korea mainly due to the huge rise in unemployment, and around 97 to 98 the whole country with fitted with ultra fast broadband within the same year.
