Anyone else playing?

I've definitely enjoyed the game so far. Bought back some good memories from SC and BW

Was beta testing it. I don't know. It just didn't bring back the good ole feeling of almost failing first year and gaming SC.

I havent bought it.

yeah, built my desktop when I was in HS (late 90's) suffice it to say it to say the video card barely lets me play HD videos on youtube. Even non HD videos are starting to get choppy. I really should get a new board, processor, and video card.

I played the beta and preordered it. IMO the single player campaign by itself makes it worth the money. Every mission is unique and interesting.

I haven't even touched the multiplayer yet. I'm not thinking I will be impressed due to the 10MB map size limit for custom maps. The server browser is made of fail, showing only the most popular games. I feel that I'll probably enjoy the matchmaking more than custom maps.

The map editor is highly capable. From Pong, to first person shooters, it's all possible now. There are plenty of Dota's and Tower Defence maps.

Beta tested it, picked it up at midnight of release.

The story is... oh my god. Love it. The "talk to your team" bits were a bit too bioware-ish for me. Still good though! Love it. Definitely going to be playing online and more single player... brutal is pretty tough!

How do you finish DoW2? i kept trying to keep all the zerg infestations down but between them and the protoss missions, i had no time to move on with the story.

That and the battles were just the same things on the same spots over and over...

Its great. Beta'd that **** up. Built a desktop for about 600 bucks and rockin it hard.

Seriously, just like car parts, check out tigerdirect/newegg for the open box or super cheap specials. I've got an AMD am2+ chipset, 8gigs memory, (16 capable) 500gb hd, 2 nvidia cards in SLI mode, with a 9600 amd black edition processor. Rocks faces off.

The monitor is my tv, the case I paid 25$ for on craigslist, just needed an old one that holds Full ATX boards, and it came with 2 cd drives. I had to buy a Power supply though.

pricewatch.com is another good one.

Hover your mouse over your portrait in the top right on the multiplayer screen. Or you can use email address too, I think.
