10 PM PDT = 7:00 Finnish time. I'll just get up early by the holy powers of caffeine.

Neat.

There's a party at my house, anyway, so we can probably have a nice little detour in the middle.

EDIT: Incidentally - I know this is total fanboy of me, but whatever - previously, Blizzard's official site has gone down in the moments leading up to their new game announcement. It happened for both Ghost and World of Warcraft. Does anyone have any reliable alternatives we would be able to turn to should blizzard go down this time around, as well?

StarCraft parties, eh?

Ergo, apparently StarCraft Legacy is a good source.

You're a sharp one, heh. I'm excited. If they announce more than one game, though I think it may just be a typo (because I like to keep my expectations low), I think the world will have a massive heart attack.

That is, if it isn't the next WoW expansion, that would create a typical heart attack.

ProductS only means products, not necessarily games. It could mean anything. Books, the TCG, etc.

I doubt they'd announce two games at once. It would make more business sense to announce them one at a time, even if those announcements are just a few months apart.

If they do announce a second game, it's either a new franchise or a new Diablo.

My money is on Starcraft II. Though I hope for another Diablo game as well.

Actually, if they WERE to be announcing Starcraft: Ghost, announcing a second, totally new title might be a good idea.

Yeah, I meant StarCraft: Ghost would be the second title. If it were StarCraft 2.

Atleast that's what I'd hope. Tie everything up with a nice bow.

That would be awesome, Ghost seemed like a pretty kick ass game, the ability to call down a Battlecruiser and aim his Yamoto cannon was freaking sweet.

Well... its 11:30 here. CST. So if it gets announced at 1AM EST, then we got half an hour left at the time I made this post.

Oh the suspense!

Yes, the are probably announcing it right now.

Does this mean the website will list it? Not sure, but I will be trying for the next half hour to see if it pops up.

EDIT: All the websites are showing the splash screen, even the WoW community Site, MY GOD I MUST KNOW WHAT IT IS!
