Blizzard announces ‘Starcraft 2′ in Seoul, Korea
May 21st, 2007 posted by JB under Current Events

Last Saturday, Blizzard announced the grand sequel to Starcraft in Seoul, South Korea. The showing of the video was drowned out by the cheers of 10,000 people all crazy about the game — exactly the reason why Blizzard had chosen to release the game in that country.

Ten thousand people cheering for a PC game is never seen elsewhere in the world, not even in the US. I’m crazy about Starcraft, and I admit I actually trembled — trembled! — when the news flashed on my screen 2 days ago (what with all that intriguing trailer and lots of new shiny in-game things you can destroy), but I know it would be hard to imagine seeing that kind of enthusiasm in the Philippines. The best gamers in Korea are treated like rock stars. They’re crazy like that.

To see the full account, blogger James Mielke of popular blog 1UP was there, and he has pictures and videos to prove it.

yeah, they’re so into any computer games, some kids even died of it. ever heard of that?

you know why? they don’t have a so-called “childhood”. the kids go to the regular school from 8-1pm. they go home, have some meal and run to special academies (to study either english, math, science, socialstudies, piano or taekwondo). their online concept of playing is computer games.

they grow up, work, have a family but still they spend some time in the internet cafe’s playing computer games. they sometimes spend more time playing games than interacting with another soul about life.

the adults and children’s ultimate goal? yes, you guess it right — to be the best online gamer. how f**&&k can that get?

no, i don’t want filipino kids to be like that. i want to see them screaming in the streets, playing patintero, tumbang preso or taguan.

you don’t want to be a Korean, man. haha!

i leave you with your Starcraft, am gonna play Kart Rider! bleh!

oo nga e. even the Americans, who started this whole thing, are astounded over how Koreans take these things very, very, very seriously.

medyo nagpa-”rehab” na rin ako kaya hindi na rin ako hardcore gamer… or not. he he he

by the way, baka may korean kid dyan who might want to buy my Mu character [http://magnusson.blogdrive.com/archive/12.html]. mura lang. =D

yeah sure why not. i’ll tell my students. you accept internet money? it’s what they got you know, them, being kids and all:)

i heard meron na ring diablo 3.

[ # 498 ] Comment from JB [June 7, 2007, 11:57 am]

meron nang Diablo 3? wala yata akong nasasagap na buzz…

[ # 500 ] Comment from deity [June 7, 2007, 1:35 pm]

there’s an on-going poll here in korea for diablo 3 graphics.

go to www.naver.com to check it out. if you can write korean, you may join in. ;>

[ # 506 ] Comment from JB [June 8, 2007, 1:53 pm]

deity, hindi ko kinaya ang hardcore korean characters sa naver. he he

there have been lots of diablo 3 rumors, lalo na after this starcraft 2 south korea announcement. people are hoping diablo 3 will be announced at Blizzcon in August. i wasn’t really buying all that buzz — until this came out on Digg a couple of days ago:

http://www.starcrafttwo.com/starcraft-2-news/diablo-3-at-blizzcon-2007/

looks like white garapata has it spot on. =D

sana may Wii or PS2 version.

[ # 508 ] Comment from deity [June 8, 2007, 2:10 pm]

actually ako din eh. translate ko sana for you people here, kaya lang hanggang grade 2 lang talaga level ng korean ko. bwahahhaha!!!

wag ka na manalangin me ps2 version or else ang anak kong pasaway na adik na rin sa ps2 eh magmamaktol na naman. change your wish! lol!

btw, i asked my equally pc games addict students about diable 3. they said it’s coming out before end of the year. so i guess ende lang sha rumour no?

[ # 511 ] Comment from JB [June 8, 2007, 4:40 pm]

natapos na ba ng kid mo ang God of War 2? =D

[ # 513 ] Comment from deity [June 8, 2007, 6:36 pm]

erhm… am not sure. whenever he starts blabbering about computer games, and the new games he wishes to have, i suddenly turn deaf.

“anak, anak, ende kita marinig! ang panget ng connection! tawag ulit si mommy.” =D
