Anyways, upon the announcement of the starcraft 2 closed beta, I told myself it was probably time to stop playing. My computer is out of date, my graphics card is non existent, and I "borrow" internet from an unsecured wireless internet network which just so happens to be available for me whenever I want All these things, plus my age (21) and my ever-increasing responsibilities told me maybe I should hang up the mouse and forget about the game. I was completely content on being uninvolved in the beta until my friend offered me a key. It was like a switch went off in my head, I was actually able to play the game, and now I wanted to more than ever. It's like a nerd who says he'll never have sex until marriage, then a hot naked girl is standing in front of him. EXACT same thing. So I gladly took the key, and started thinking about the obstacles that stood in my way. Here is what I did to overcome them:
-Started by dropping $600~ on new computer. Luckily i got a vacation pay-cheque in only days after I got the beta key.
-Discovered the Nvidia graphics card that came stock in my CPU couldn't run SC2 at all, so dropped another $80~ on a Radeon card (Got a deal because it was open box)
-Pre-ordered SC2 (Another $70~)
Now I had all but one obstacle taken care of; my internet. Starcraft is a drug, and I apperently need my fix. Today, sometime between 8 am and 12 pm a technician from Bell Canada will be coming here to install my VERY OWN internet connection. I'll be getting Fibe 6 which is like sexy and everything. So Im thinking to myself, not only did i pay $750 just for hardware and accessories, but I'm going to be paying roughly $30/month just to maintain game-play. Am I crazy? My girlfriend certainly thinks so Let's see a WoW player put that much dedication into the game he loves :D
