Hey, anyone has a spare Starcraft 2 beta key he/she does not need? If you could share, I would greatly appreciate it. :)
EDIT: Fixed. Like it better now, Gundato? :p
EDIT2: Damn, seems like I've messed up the title. Oh well...

Might want to clarify what you are begging for in a manner that may or may not be against the rules of the beta.
CS2 can imply (among other things) Photoshop and some Counter-Strike sequel.
SC2 probably means Starcraft 2, but SC is one of the most common acronyms in gaming, so yeah...
I still see CS2 and yes, I thought it had something to do with Creative Suite, even though they're working on CS5 now I think.
And by the way, I'm also interested in getting a SC2 key. I don't think they're letting too many central americans in, so my opt-in hasn't had any success. I can't pre order on american retail stores and even if I've heard Amazon is giving away keys for pre-orders, I'm not so sure that includes non-americans. Also, I'll get charged taxes for buying something from the States that costs more than $50 (Thank you, Bobby Kotick).
I still don't see what the fuss is about myself.
I tried the first starcraft and didn't think all that much to it.
Maybe its because I'm not much of a fan of RTS games...
CraftStar 2 is a great game.
And if anyone had a spare beta key I'm pretty sure theyd either use it or sell it.

Oh, definitely that must be it. :)
Starcraft has been the epitome of a strategy game with completely different races that are very well balanced. It pretty much spearheaded E-sports in Korea and they even have TV shows with matches from progamers who have leagues like any normal sports and big salaries and sponsors, since the matches are actually fun to watch if you understand what is going on and how difficult it is to do some of the things the pros do.
I'll give you mine for Syberia. :)
Gimme your email if interested.

Send the email, then register the key.
Haaaah!
Counter-Strike 2 is in beta right NAO?! Aow man, let me in!1
(I'm poor right now to afford the $100 CE, I've read it comes with 1 or 2 beta keys. :( )
Yea at first I thought it was Photoshop CS2. Then I got a revelation and thought it could be Counterstrike 2.
And I clicked and to my dismay, it's just Starcraft 2 :(

Yeah, it's strange how many two-word game titles beginning with those two letters there are. Off the top of my head:
StarCraft (naturally)
Soul Calibur
Super Cars
Supreme Commander
Star Control
Star Commander
Sim City
Any others? I'm sure there are more.

And its so deeply boring and generic, no dynamism, nothing but endless micro and sod all strategy
Starcraft, like many games of the past, is viewed through rose-tinted glasses.
To this day, it is hard to find a long-time (SP)FPS fan who doesn't love DOOM. It wasn't the first FPS, but it was the first one to "get it right". Compared to today, it is antiquated and insanely repetitive (plus, it relied on labyrinth style levels too much).
Same with Starcraft. It wasn't the first RTS, but it was the first to "get it right". Compared to today, it is antiquated and almost pure rock-paper-scissors (seriously, a lot of the SC fans should consider 4x games. Much more complicated build orders :p). But it still holds a spot in people's hearts.
That is actually why I am looking forward to SC2. Not as a player (I'll wait for the bundle before I go through the campaigns), but as a spectator. I want to see just how this fares (outside of the Koreas :p).

Grrr... when I saw I had a reply on this topic I went "YES! YEESSS! My prayers have been answered!"... to come and read this? What a letdown.
To each his own, I guess. I see people here fawning over games I've absolutely no interest in and terms like "boring" also come to mind, but I figure people's ways to find entertainment varies wildly.
