    I've got it on pre-order from Newegg. I can't wait to whoop some butt. I just re-installed WC3: Frozen Throne to get my skills back on par.

    It will happen eventually. The older Starcraft and Warcraft series have LAN as a gaming option from the main menu.

    My specs:

    Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
    G.Skill 4 GB DDR2 RAM dual channel
    Intel Core 2 Duo @ 3.2 GHz
    EVGA NVIDIA GTS 250 w/ 512 VRAM
    WD Raptor 300GB HDD

    I think I've got good specs to play :)

    Hmm... does Battle Net allow you to do Player vs. Computer? I despise playing against other players because my playing style is not PvP orientated.

    You can create your own private game and just list the extra slots as Computer (difficulty).

    Oh ok. I was thinking of having like 5 vs. 3 comp or 4 vs 4 comp, where anyone can join in. Would a private game eliminate that possibility?

    Not necessarily. If you have whomever you wish to play with join your private game first (they would just have to enter the game name along with the password), you can then select the AI to play into the empty slots.

    Sorry Roze, Imma about to sin! :p I wonder slightly how my next week will be thanks to this game dropping at my lap in some hours. Well, I love the idea of starting the Terran campaign and get a grip on the multiplayer world again with SC2.

    So yeah, will be getting this game easily. :D

    I never did play the single player for the original Starcraft but I did for Warcraft 3 and Frozen Throne.

    Decided to cancel my preorder with Gamestop tonight. I just can't really have any distractions while preparing for an upcoming intensive semester.

    I have a Jim Raynor wallpaper on my Desire for a week now, I have Blizzard authenticator for Android set up and I'm getting my SC2 copy after work.... Hope to see more Android fans on Battle.net! And let's hope that any battle.net or SC2 apps that come out are not iPhone-only (like the Armory app). Blizz is slowly starting to support android (Authenticator and Auction house app)....

    Go Blizz and go Google!

    I have played RTSs in the past and still do. Do you think this game will worth the money and be fun to someone new to the whole Starcraft thing?

    ha well to be honest I was like 8 when it first came out. I didn't start playing it till one of my cousins left his copy at my house. I still have it laying around somewhere too.

    about to install now, with a huge smile on my face

    So how does everyone like it? I used to play Warcraft III - thinking about getting SC2 as it seems like Warcraft RTS isn't going to be updated anytime soon.
