Ok I'm a huge fan of RTS style games, and as for 2010 and games now, Starcraft was always a win, and Starcraft 2 I am waiting for with great anticipation. Also, Supreme Commander (and the Forged Alliance expansion) was an extreme win, and I'm waiting for Supreme Commander 2 with I think more anticipation than Starcraft 2.. and as for ooooold games, only sort of strategy based, Star Control II: The Ur-Quan Masters.. Best game of it's time, and ever lol. And I've noticed a theme in my favorite games... All have the acronym "SC" haha. Awesomesauce.

Nah, I heard that each disk contains like a full game worth of missions and shit. So its basically so that Starcraft 2 consists of 3 separate games.

At least, they better be doing that.

thats crap they can easily fit all 3 campaigns in one box whether it be in 3 disks or 1, the point is we shouldnt have to pay 3 times to get a whole game experience

On the Old-tour...

Anyone remember Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate?

Played that turn-based strategy thingy to bits.
Even had an editor to make your own scenarios (tougher ones for me and Deathtraps for friends ;).

Not sure if this still plays on XP or later though...

Personally, I don't know if I'd cave and get SC2 still even if they did that whole 3 separate disks thing.. I'd definitely frown upon them for doing that, but I dunno if I'd cave and buy as well haha. Maybe.. But nothing will stop me from getting Supreme Commander 2!! Except of course the lack of a release xD

And as for warhammer: nope o.o never played it.. I have the newerish one on the xbox 360, but I just couldn't get into it.. Played through some of the first mission and just turn it off.. Not sure why, but it's so hard for me to get into that game.

There is a warhammer strategy game on the Xbox?

I heard Relic is making one, but I thought that one was far from being finished.

As for Supreme Commander 2, I dunno. 1 got a little boring after a while. It just took to long to make a significantly big enough army. Especially the higher tech units. I dont like waiting 5 minutes before the highest tech ship is done. Of course, you could speed it up to 2 minutes, but that meant you where suddenly all out of resources.
