The more I hear about SC5 the less inclined I am to buy it. SC4+RH is the best SC around for me and SC5 is shaping up to be what the new FPS Syndicate was to the old game, a travesty of what made the original series great.
Making a singleplayer game online only is just utter insane and the fact that the Origin store is already showing that SC5 comes with tons of DLC for their more expensive editions tells me SC5 is going the way of The Sims with a DLC store. No thanks. Not to mention the Deluxe SC5 edition costs $90 over here.
