StarCraft II is Year's Biggest PC Game Launch

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty sold more than a million copies in 24 hours and 1.5 million copies over the first 48 hours of availability, announces Blizzard. They say this makes the real-time strategy sequel the biggest PC game launch of the year, and that this sets a record "for fastest-selling strategy game of all time."

Is that the "judge me not by what I say but what I say is allowed to be picked" argument? You're in every SC2 discussion going fanboy when people say anything remotely negative. I did not think it was even possible for someones judgment to be so clouded by misguided brand loyalty that they would excuse a twelve year gap between titles.

I've criticized Blizzard's storytelling numerous times before, which apparently you missed when you oh so accurately summed up my starcraft 2 posting history. And spare me that "you disagree with me so therefore you're a fanboy" bullshit. I've had better discussions with people on youtube. I thought you Verno, of all people on this board, would be above such silliness. If you have any specific issues on why my judgement is "clouded", then bring it up.

And what's this "misguided brand loyalty" bullshit? I've already explained myself, which you apparently didn't care to read:

If you're wondering why I'm commenting, then here's why: How many old PC franchises actually get proper sequels these days? 90% of my favorite games of all time will never again see the light of day. So yeah, it's annoying when great sequel gets released and people bitch about the development time. If Warren Spector announces a PC exclusive, true spirited sequel to Deus Ex tomorrow, I swear some of you around here will still bitch about how long that took. And yeah, I'll respond to you the same way when Valve releases Half Life 3 and you start bitching about how long that took.

And I'm not the only one around here that feels the bitching stems from a sense of entitlement. I've clearly stated that it's exceedingly rare when ANY PC game gets a good sequel nowadays, and if you still think this attitude is somehow exclusively tied to Blizzard, then you can kindly fuck off.

Edit: I see now why you're so adamant at labeling me a fanboy. Apparently someone feels quite strongly about COH, and had their own defensive reaction. See the discussion in the other thread.
