    Default argh! So much starcraft!

    hey, i love starcraft 2, and I too am really exited about it, but at the same time its kind of annoying how 90% of all your web-posts at the moment are purely starcraft related; there swamping the other stuff - how 'bout a filter or something?

    I suppose its the biggest game of the year so far and we've waited ages for it. I've preordered my copy and just wait till it arrives.

    Still it will no doubt be a critical acclaim hit and we'll see a lot more articles and god damn content for starcraft 2. What i'm looking forward to most? The fmv sequences.

    I have to make a confession, i hated SC. Played it 3 times and just found that i couldn't complete it. The mechanics of the game felt...wrong. Ironically when i played warcraft 2 and 3 i loved it. Even though the mechanics were similar. Starcraft rubbed me the wrong way for some reason. Maybe it was the lack of healing, maybe the units weren't like conventional rts ones, maybe i was annoyed i could fix my buildings or how the siege tank doubled up as an assualt vehicle.

    Save yourself $60 and watch the reveal trailer.

    Don't worry Coccyx, the "worst" of it is over. We'll be continuing StarCraft coverage throughout the week, but there won't be quite as much as there was on Friday, which was several years of stuff all going up at once.

    Yes, whatever develops should go up as normal. We've just prepared a bunch of StarCraft-focused coverage in addition to all the normal stuff.

    You should add an option to hide the SC2 spam if you're not interested in it. Like a filter by tags or something.
    I don't mind since I'm actually interested in the game but I was suprised to see 4 posts on it just today and I can see how that can get annoying.

    I agree- the site looks like it's become actiblizzgamer.com recently.... Don't really care about SC2 tbh, certainly not on my radar at all, though I understand that some people love it to bits. Just not 90% of the readership, so no need to devote 90%of the website to it....

    I use RSS to read the site and I just ignored anything with the words "Starcraft 2" in the title. I imagine it's a bit more annoying when reading the actual website, as you have to scroll through many "NEXT PAGE" buttons to get to the real news.
