I also have two kids and no time. I haven't played in more than a year. Still confident that I could beat noobs with one hand though.

ditto, minus the kids

So I've played this a fair bit over the weekend, kinda dig it.

its way more traditional than I thought it would be, but that i think must be the thing that keeps people hooked. I suppose when half of South Korea is lining up to f**k your golden cow, you dont change the cow...

The campaign seems to be just a massive tutorial to avoid you getting schooled in multiplayer, much like a fighting game.

the one thing I really like about it is that you can play for 20/30 mins and win/lose and be done, seeing as the only games I've played in the last year are Skyrim/Arkham city. The idea of a game that actually has a defined end appeals a lot.

There is a weird disconnect about how much it seems to be troubling my Macbook Air and how simple the graphics are, but I've literally not played a game on a Macintosh since the millenium, so who knows...

most places had it for £17 which is a price I'm cool with, but now it seems to have gone up everywhere to £26. So I'm on the fence...

Would the multiplayer be useful at all? or will everyone be on HOTS now with only me and some super l33t players still playing wings of Liberty?

HOTS is overpriced. I'll be sticking with WoL until it comes down.

I'm going to play some mono battles tomorrow. Haven't played in over a year.

Anyone buying the new one? I still haven't bought HotS. WoL multiplayer 4 life

Let me put my sunglasses on so I can see what I'm doing here

Shit, same day, different years. That shit is freaky.

Somehow I've found myself watching lots of competitive Starcraft again. I had assumed it was dead but it seems to be going strong. I don't understand some of the new units since I haven't played since Wings of Liberty.

This is interesting:

the rise of serral is almost singlehandedly to blame for me watching again

He's really something. Zergs in general seem really strong. Few Terrans seem to get deep into tournaments right now.

his play is the most beautiful thing i've seen in SC2, though i hadn't seen much since like 2012
