Few of my friends/coworkers spoke highly of it. I'm also waiting for it to go on sale. I'm a $20 kinda guy.

Release version is just as buggy as the last beta, sadly. They are fixing the crashes, but it's annoying to hit them (avoid alt-tab like the plague). However, I'm still enjoying the game. It does need a lot of polish though.

The game runs off of a shitload of XML files. So adding units, kingdoms, spells, etc is really easy. They say the campaign was created using the tools they are releasing. As for a whole new game with mod tools? Dunno for sure. The modding stuff wasn't available until recently.

This is the type of stuff that makes me oppose NN so much. Corporate and government overlords want to control the Internet for their own agenda.

That would make you FOR net neutrality. That is, you don't want it to change. You don't want corporations telling you what packets are important. Can't do that without the government telling them not to touch it. Perhaps it's the other stuff they'll introduce at the same time that you fear.

The battles are interesting, but I'm mainly having fun (in the current beta) building my cities. After a certain point, I go crazy and take over my neighbors' cities. The tactical battles are meh, but I think that's partially because we're a few versions behind the release. The one we have isn't very balanced and basically you can just cast spells to win. The screenshots show quite a few changes coming, so I'm looking forward to it.

I've said in other posts about Elemental that I enjoy it a lot. I've easily put 20 - 30 hours in to the game already and look forward to restarting on Monday (early release).

Perhaps an MMORTS. That'd be kinda cool if they pulled it off right. Persistent RTS world.

I'm in the beta since beta 3. It's great. I finally put it down when sc2 came out. I'm just waiting now for the final game so I don't have to keep restarting. I've already got my money's worth out of it and it's not even out yet.

I hope they don't use GfWL. Talk about a pain in the fucking ass. Batman:AA ran fine; all my issues were related with GfWL and making it work/update.

I only care about one thing, is it fun. And yes, it is. I'm very much enjoying it and will be forking over the money for the expansion.

I was asking a question. If pricing was announced to be $60 for each of the 3 parts of this game, would that be ok? Would anyone take issue with this game if that were the end result?

Depends on how good SC2 episode 1 is. If I can get 15+ hours of enjoyment out of it, yeah, I'll buy the next at $60. If it turns out to be crap, then no I won't. I've already got that 15 hours in the beta, so I'm not too worried.

Amazon still shows mine as arriving tomorrow. My first foray in to "release day shipping", or whatever it is. If it doesn't make it tomorrow I'll be pissed.

I paid for the feed last year. I'll probably do it again this year. I like seeing the behind-the-scenes stuff (the panels and such). Plus two years ago they announced Diablo 3 (I think it was at BlizzCon). Last year was all about Cata. What's this year going to be?

Plus they have goodie bags (codes). The $40 last year was worth it.
