    I got some beta screen shots.
    Can I upload them to here?
    Can I insert pictures directly in thread or just post links?

    I'm back after a couple years absence and the site has been updated and it looks like some of the old limits/rules don't apply.

    [​IMG] The IMG tag currently isn't enabled, though that may be revised in the future.

    However, you've welcome to create an album and upload the pics to it. You can then just post a link to the album or to individual screens.

    There's nothing TO discuss. I mean, StarCraft, man.

    I'm really interested in how the plot will work out. Hybrids?! Queen @#$% of the Universe?! Raynor has hair now?! Zeratul?! Oooh...

    There's the link to one picture I uploaded.
    I had to shrink it a lot to fit the under 100KB limit here.
    It's much nicer on my hard drive.

    I love the look of the new Protoss Carriers! :grin:

    Cool screenshot (I've changed your link so that it goes to the page where people can also leave comments on it). The sequel won't look that drastically different from the original, but I expect that the gameplay will be changed to a larger degree.

    Why did Blizzard do it? I want both Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2...but I canp play them both at the same time...


    ...or can I? Maybe if I bought another computer and 3 monitors for a 4 screen setup, then microed everything...
    ...
    ...then again, perhaps not.
    As an extra note the Battlecruisers look fluffing awesome.

    Ok it's well drawn, but you have to admit it looks nothing like her except for the hair.

    I've been waiting to get my SPS Account all set up so I can upload larger pictures for the screen shots.

    All this stuff I downloaded from the net over the last year.
    Some of the art may not be the real deal.
    Every site on the web isn't as honest and well run as SP.
    ;)

    Handy to have the tech tree in-game... I don't remember if the original had that.

    Shrubs being used for cover could get tedious if you're trying to find where your own units are.

    All in all I'm pretty excited about SC2. I'm trying not to get my hopes too high, just in case, but from what I've seen Blizzard seem to be paying attention to improving aspects of the first game without changing what doesn't need fixing. My biggest worry initially was that they would take the story in a completely different direction and ignore all the revelations from the Brood War secret mission, but that fear's been alleviated now. If they can pull it off the game may well be as big a hit as Starcraft was (or still is!).

    Looks like some kind of uber-Dragoons to me.
