I downloaded the online version, not knowing that you can't actually start playing the game until noon today, when Blizzard starts digital purchases. UUUUGH

I'll probably pick it up today. I'm not a big online RTS player.
Between SC1, AoE2, WC3, etc. I've played maybe 20 online matches and won a total of 0 of them lol
Maybe I can get into this one more.

Just like I can probably show you how to play TF2. It's like the only game I've played since 2007.

Figures.. I get a constant "billing error" on the purchase screen. Nothing wrong with my finances, so I guess it's server overload time.

It's playing very well so far.. I'm only a short amount in, but it feels like an updated version of StarCraft I.. which is exactly what I was hoping. Don't mess too much with a good thing. I'm just getting to weapon upgrades, and you can hire mercenaries for in-battle perks. Seems like this is shaping up to be a really good sequel.

One minor qualm: it's 2010, and I think the cutscenes must've been programmed five years ago. I'm playing on a 27" screen, so maybe I'm nitpicking, but the cutscene graphics are not at a 2010 level.

That's unfortunate. I like a good cutscene.

Yeah, and Blizzard usually has the best cut scenes of anybody. I guess all their cut scene resources went into the endless WoW expansions.

The cutscenes, from a storyline perspective, are great. I guess they're not terrible, but I just got this computer and would love to see some heavy graphics in action.. the lines are sharper and the movement stiffer than what you should expect anymore.
