Got StarCraft II early? Doesn't matter because you can't play it yet!

Yes, Messi is my desktop image. I never said I wasn’t a geek.

It’s like I’ve been shot in the heart.

My copy of StarCraft II just showed up in the post, but THE MAN says I can’t install it until tomorrow. I’d rather not even have the game at all then have it sitting on my desk teasing me.

“Boy Nicholas, I bet you’d like to play me right now, wouldn’t you? Oh, what’s that? It’s only 1:00pm local time on July 26? Sorry, check back in a few hours.”

So even if your local indie video game store sells you the game early, well, you can’t play it.

And yes, I tried changing the date on my computer. At least I think I did…
