KW isn't bad IF you only play single player campaign/Skirmishes.
You can seldom play online(which is the core of any RTS.) to the end due to crazy de-sync issue...

Assuming last year's Christmas sale gets carried onto this year (which is a safe assumption, seeing as they managed to cripple their normally resilient servers with the sheer number of downloads), I think I'll just pick these, and another few dozen games up then.

Besides, I'm waiting for another RTS (other than the Rise of Nations series) to have the basic AI and grouping required to have a mass of units actually move together, rather than every unit proceeding at their own speed and having the light units massacred if not micromanaged. It's spoiled me on every other RTS out there, even the venerable Starcraft, and is one of those ideas that seems ridiculously obvious once out there. The fact that nobody's picked it up yet after seven years just shows how shamefully formulaic the RTS genre remains, and why nothing from the genre will get my wallet's vote, at least until I can pick them up for pocket change.

Got the Red Alert 3 expansion... I don't like buying digitally, but I guess it will never come out on disc.

C&C3 is worth it at the sale price. Not so much C&C4.
Ditto. KW isn't bad either. RA3 and C&C4 were awful!

Too bad they are still not worth it.

Agreed. I credit the original C&C with making me a PC gamer, and while I really want to finish the series I just haven't heard enough good about them to justify them, even at the sale price.

No rush though, there's always the Christmas/New Years sale.

I have another reason: missing value for money, even with the sale.

Skipping this for the same reason I skipped the Crysis bundle. 3rd party DRM.
