Just curious who will be playing. As with anything, I'll probably wait for a patch or 2 before I buy it. Let the hype settle down a bit. I loved the original Star Craft. Everything I've seen of II makes me think it is going to be really good.
I do have Steam on my computer and recently played Alien Swarm, a game that's available for free on Steam (you can also get the source code, it's meant as an example for the API that they have). It's fun, together with others you have to work your way through a space ship, shooting aliens that have infested it.
Meh, not much of a gamer anymore.
I used to love RTS games, but have been thoroughly dissapointed by most recent franchise installments - I'm looking at you here C&C.
The only "recent" RTS that was worth playing, in my opinion, was Company of Heroes.
