Nice! The only thing is that I was hoping they would mention DX 10 support in the expansion. I wonder what ending they will go with?

Remember with Total Annihilation we got free units every now and then. What ever happened to that plan for Supreme Commander? I guess the golden age of PC gaming is over

How can they say it is one of the highest rated RTS's of all time? It wasn't rated as high as CoH or even C&C3, both of which were out at the same time!

I will be plopping down the dough to get this expansion for sure. SC has taken wayyyyyy too much of my life for me to pass this one up.
