Starcraft 2 is fantastic. The first Starcraft is what gave RTS's definition and entertainment (IMO), and it was great to see the sequel. I pre-ordered it and it came like 2 days after release. I've been playing it quite a lot (along with League of Legends). And YES!, it is a good game and the best strategy game I've ever played. Graphics are insanely good, the storyline is one of the best sci-fi action stories out there (better than Star Wars IMO), and the gameplay is just incredible. I'll leave it at that for now... but I highly recommend this game for any strategy fan.

Yeah - yesterday, I bought the Collectors Edition. (I'm also "Menneisyys" on Bnet.) Pretty nice so far - the only problem I have is the hotkey changes; for example, the siege tanks (I still always use the old "t" to produce it in factories; it's been reassigned to Thors).

BTW, did anyone run into the problem of the 9600 GPU overheating on a 17" MBP Pro (2009 late model, 2.8 GHz, 4G RAM?) I'm unable to play any game in its full 3G glory / video on my MBP because of it locking for 10-15 seconds all the time, every 20-30 secs. It's certainly not a compatibility issue as I've tried removing / disabling all resident apps. With the default 3D controller, I can only use "low" at a comparatively low (slightly higher than 1024*768) resolution and can't use 1920*1200 at all, not even at the lowest detail.

Thought I'd finally get back into RTS scene after watching IGN's IP4 last night. It's been quite a few years since I stopped playing SC, AoE, and EE. Wanted to run through a few matches on SC/BW for old time's sake before jumping into SCII. Tried to buy the SC Anthology just now, but it turns out OS X Lion no longer support PowerPC apps anymore, meaning I can't play anything from Blizzard that came out before and including Diablo II's expansion on my MacBook Pro. Hopefully, I can get a refund although it was only $15. Still going to go ahead and grab SCII though. Should be a huge time killer, but I'm very, very excited, having once been a complete RTS addict.

Edit: Downloading.. 6.5 GB to go. Starting SCII at this point in the sems will probably lead to some dire consequences. Don't want to think about how much time it'll take up.

Oh well, game on.

Already playing through mission 5. Can't believe how far the game has come in about a decade. It's just incredible. No doubt, this will be all I'm playing soon enough. Excited to try out multiplayer with some friends later. The game looks as good as it plays.

Really..? Either you're some kid looking through the forums to make fun of others or some shit [trolling], or just insulting. Go play your "major league baseball 3873'th edition" and get yourself a home run because you can't get one in real life.

I can tell you I'm not a virgin, nor a geek or a nerd and I still enjoy Starcraft. Infact I never played Starcraft before and bought Starcraft II a few months ago. It's amazing. Also all the great custom multiplayer games are starting to release now! It's epic.

Just played SCII online for over 5 hours with a party of three other friends. Holy crap, I'm addicted already. Playing my placement matches tomorrow.

BTT, let me know if you want to play some team games at some point. I'm usually down for a few games, but most of the people I used to play with have quit or rarely log on.

I got a full refund for the Starcraft Anthology from Blizzard, sweet. Quick and generous CS. Will be grabbing Diablo III as soon as the digital download is available.

Edit: Alright, will look for the code next time I'm on, thanks.
