VIDEO: First StarCraft II TV Commercial (Hotness)

So what's hotter? The release of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, or the holiday release of Crysis 2? It's certainly a steamy year for PC gaming (Diablo III would make it phenomenal, but that's asking a lot), and the clip seen below just drives that point home.

This TV commercial actually aired on Thursday night during ABC's coverage of the NBA 2010 Finals. The whole thing is CGI-laden--it doesn't sport one frame of gameplay whatsoever. Guess all is forgiven, as the action-packed sequence just gets us all fired up for the July 27 release date.

    beta was sick. battle.net ........ though. No LAN, chat channels, cross realm play (meaning if you buy the US copy of the game, you can't play on the Asian server, where most of the good (Korean) players are), etc. Hopefully those features are added by release.

    Ya i think a lot of features will be added before release like chat channels etc. if they allow cross game chat with friends ie message your guild leader in wow while playing SC2 i think a chat channel is probability not that hard to add.

    Idk what you mean by:kwajfreakTeen... really?But an RTS with overhead view and gunfights really shouldn't be rated less then teen or rated M, it makes sense to me. last time i checked the zerg didn't have a goo attack that melted ghosts clothes off.(in before someone mods that into the game)

    Neither, Fallout 3 New Vegas baby. It will not be using the piece of crap known as GFWL, thank goodness. STEAM will be the DRM and expansions too I guess.

    I have said it before and will say it again, SC2 and Activision at $59.95 for a PC game in three parts can kiss my ass.

But its Starcraft... I mean.. common... its Starcraft. I can't resist that!

    Went to YouTube and watched it several times full screen at HD. This would be a kick as game in FPS mode. Use the new Crysis engine and just go. It would sell like crazy too. Use Obsidian or someone that is good at that kind of thing.
