12 long years ago Starcraft was launched it was the best real time strategy game I ever played.  Plus, I was on a Mac and Blizzard was one of the few game companies that would develop for Apple systems.  The Brood War Expansion pack followed shortly thereafter.  A long stretch of time past and then there were rumors of Starcraft Ghost a departure from the the RTS roots that moved the story into stealth action 3D.  I had such high hopes for that game, but alas the project was terminated and Blizzard’s focus turned away from their sci-fi IP and toward their fantasy epics Diablo 2, Warcraft 3, and World of Warcraft.

The Starcraft franchise has had a long wait for a sequel, but tonight Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty will be launched.  I will be heading to the midnight festivities at my local Game Stop to pick up my collector’s edition.  I can’t wait to go back to the Starcraft storyline and it looks like this tale will be amazing 3 part epic.

It’s About Damn Time!
