They're still churning out Dune copies, remembering everything, learning nothing.

And then, when some guy writes about RTS games, he excludes the one game that definitely deserves the title: Rome:TW. Moron. In fact, the games in that article do not deserve to be called real time strategy games, but real time tactics games.

Yes let's all get a hard-on when the next Blizzard "RTS" game is announced and then spray our shorts when it's released.

Here's hoping Supreme Commander will do something new.
