Twelve years. Twelve long years. That’s the duration the lot of us have had to wait for the continuation of fan-favorite Starcraft, an RTS from Blizzard. Twelve. Freaking. Years. We’ve had to clench our teeth while Blizzard focused all of their production time into the Warcraft intellectual property, watching as Blizzard pushed out the THIRD iteration of Warcraft and then even gave the damn mythos its own MMO. We wept when Starcraft: Ghost was canceled. Five years of production flushed down the toilet and why? Who the hell knows. What we do know is that we had to wait twelve long years for the sequel to show up. As Tychus Finley put it quite well, “Hell, it’s about time.” But was it worth the wait?
