Me. Don't normally ever do this...but I bought the collectors edition release-date shipped from amazon.

Figure I spend half my childhood playing SC1 so they deserve my cash.

I'll be getting it. Starcraft and Civilization are my two weaknesses.

I will be purchasing it. They mods for this game are going to be amazing.

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

I'll download it and play through campaign.
With south korea playing it online, there won't be a point in even trying to play multiplayer.

I'll be getting it tomorrow. A bit disappointed that its not actually on SALE during the first week of release. Every other game released on PC is normally $10 lower than retail its first week out.

But uh, due to the extremely bad management at Activision, it looks like I will be skipping starcraft 2 until they sell all 3 campaigns as 1 package. If I remember correctly, you are going to have to pay $59 for each campaign separately.

They'll probably just be expansion packs. But still, i'm in the same boat as him, waiting for all three at once.

There are at least two expansion packs planned according to Blizzard.

You can play all 3 races online, but this game is just the Terran campaign for the single player.

They're definitely milking the series, but I don't know if the next two are expansion packs or independent games.

Single-player campaign is only Terrans...

As for the price of said "Expansions" who the hell knows, I'm betting on $40+ each for Protoss and Zerg. I'm also thinking this is going to be an ongoing storyline for the next 10+ years with real expansions every year or two, but only one race at a time.

I'll buy the game after I build a new computer, which depends on how well I do in Vegas in a couple weeks

Yeah, something like 30 total missions, you pick certain missions to do and that changes things from what I understand. You actually buy upgrades that are permanent, can buy mercs, etc.

I'm sure some purists aren't going to like some of the changes, but I'm sure it'll be a great campaign and I'm looking forward to the storyline a lot

I have only seen them referred to as expansion packs and that terminology was used in Activision/Blizzard's earnings reports for their stock.

I honestly don't know how much they can milk it. Reason being is that they are cannibalizing their own player base. I got on Wow last night to fight a few PVP matches and it was dead. To me that means a lot of people were out camping for Starcraft 2. I'm interested to see how many people are online tonight and how many of my friends will show up as playing Starcraft 2.

For those of you thinking you want the game, GameStop has the Collector's Edition on sale right now for $80 using the coupon code 20FROM80 and free shipping if you use SAVER.

Just bought mine, a little shy of $86 total with 5-10 day USPS shipping

This is true, but they will still be paying that monthly fee ;p

They just changed the rules then. Got this message:
Quote:
The coupon entered will not provide a discount based on the current contents of your shopping cart. You may continue checkout without a discount or read the coupon description below and make the appropriate changes to your shopping cart or shipping method selected. Coupon description :
Coupon:20FROM80 - $20 off any in-stock order of in-stock merchandise totaling $80 or more. Excludes consoles, bundles and special editions. May not be combined with other offers. Expires 7/31/2010 11:59PM
Does work buying the regular version. But you can't use both codes at the same time. Even buying 2 to get the $20 coupon to work, still comes out to $60 a copy.

I picked up the C.E. The pet is not a seperate loot card, it is tied directly to your b.net when you enter the serial#, so no seperate pets. Also, the name you pick when you install the game is non-changeable and non-deletable atm, so choose wisely.

I'm guessing its for the "pre-order numbers" or some marketing reason they can't sale you one. How long do they wait before selling copies that were pre-ordered?

I dig the single player campaign so far. Looks like they paid quite a bit more attention on the storyline and the cinematics this time around.

Yes, I did order the CE. Gamestop still shows my order as "open", just going to have to wait

I placed my second order yesterday so i'm shocked that it did go through.
UPS shows "Scheduled Delivery Date: 07/29/2010." can't wait.

Oh hell...how deep into the game do you have to go to get to that?

I've only completed two of the single player missions thus far.
