Or maybe they should have made it an actual MMO instead of just arbitrarily saying the SP game needs internet.

You don't have to start paying $16 with Netflix. They are separating the DVD side and the internet side. Each of them being $8. As long as you only really use one or the other, pick that one, and your cost actually decreases.

Getting out of your comfort zone is a good thing. Looking forward to seeing what they can do with this model.

Lots of people playing something isn't necessarily connected to how "good" something is, whatever that means anyways.

I smelled the stunt right away and thus wasn't pissed. But hey, let them share Planescape Torment for free and everyone else will be more than happy again.

My first thought was they were bringing back the HEAT.NET gaming service. Aside from the lack of serious competition in Quake/Quake 2, it was a blast. Plus, I got copies of Battlezone, Battlezone 2, and Dark Reign from redeeming points earned kicking ass on Q2DM1

They need a bigger catalog of games, or better prices, to
competecoexist with Steam. Charging more for abandonware than Steam charges for modern games isn't going to work in the long run.
How much cheaper do you want them to get?
I think you dismissing their catalog as "abandon-ware" shows you are not really their target audience. They have a ton of classics on there already and will surely get more.

That was the MSRP. Same as SC2.
How disgusting. You should boycott this game at full price now because of Blizzard's apparent long history of greed, and wait for a sale price.
Here's hoping the Amazon/Gogamer sales start around the same time those battle.net alternatives become available for SC2.
EDIT: And expansions for SC1/War3 were of course in the range of 29.99 or so, definitely not 59.99... yes yes the SC2 campaigns will be much longer, hooray. Is it just me or is the campaign portion of any RTS, aside from Homeworld, the always the worst part of the game?
ps. Nostalgia for old school Command and Conquer cheesy live action video sequences in the campaigns doesn't count!
