Precious Moments: Singapore Man Cries After Being First In Country To Purchase Starcraft II

July 31, 2010


So it's Saturday morning and I'm sitting in my car outside a hotel in downtown LA that just so happens to have an unsecured network. Saturday post! (Don't you ever say I don't love you)

Seen here weeping like a little girl that just opened a unicorn on her birthday, 23-year old Singaporean Nicol Tan was the first in his country to get his hands on a copy of Starcraft II. What are you gonna do next, Nicol? "I'm going to Disneyland stay up for two weeks straight and let my work and personal relationships suffer!" Haha, that's my boy.

At half past noon on Tuesday, thousands of eager fans finally managed to get their hands on Starcraft II, the sequel to the game which has sold more than 11 million copies worldwide.

Funan DigitaLife Mall, the venue for the sequel's release on Tuesday, estimated the number of fans to be over 10,000.

[Nicol], a student chef, had been waiting since 11am the previous day.

'As a hard-core fan for more than 10 years, I wanted to come in early to see how Blizzard sets up the stage because it's a once in a lifetime experience,' he said.

God, I wish I could get that excited about something. Now that The Hills is over I don't have much left in life besides Shark Week and pinball. What's that? Right -- and booze. How do I keep forgetting about the booze? *bottle talking* Cause we're never apart? Boy you so good to me!

Thanks to Chinboy_Dan, who ordered the game on Amazon because he doesn't like crowds. Otherwise he would have totally been first.
