StarCraft II Performance

There's a StarCraft II GPU Performance Comparison on Hardware Canucks where they take Blizzard's imminent real-time strategy sequel for a test run on a number of graphics cards. The game's DirectX 9 graphics do not require the most advanced hardware, but they determine what it will take to get proper performance from the game at various resolutions and detail levels. There's also a StarCraft II Beta Performance Preview on Overclockers Club testing with a smaller set of hardware, and a similar article on PC Perspective, where they say: "Even your mom can play."

Nothing to do with net access, I'm just opposed to LAN requiring a net connection. Hence I'll vote with my money, as I have done with any game/service that doesn't do it right in my opinion (IE MW2 with it's P2P crap and Xbox 360 charging for online multiplayer).

Protesting against MW2 is totally different since the lack of dedicated servers and mod support negatively affects everyone who plays multiplayer. With SCII, you and your brother can play just as well together online.

SO now with SCII, you're still going to play it (the single player) anyways, just not pay for it. It seems like a sad excuse to avoid paying for something, especially since the missing feature you're protesting against does not impact on your enjoyment of the game at all 99% of the time.
