Much to my own personal devastation, I was not included among the first round of blessed individuals who received access to the closed beta for Starcraft 2 when keys went out yesterday. However, the silver lining to this is that it can hopefully be taken as a sign that everything is on track for a release along Blizzard's stated timeline.
As someone who played Starcraft and Brood Wars so much I wore down both CDs and had to buy a second set, I cannot put into words how excited I am for the game's release after twelve long, long years.
While I figure out who to kill or perform sexual favors for to get a beta key, enjoy these three videos over at 1UP.com taken during their livestream of the beta yesterday. If you picked up a key yourself, show off in the comments. (It makes it easier to narrow down who I need to come after!)
