I know :/ no more nano-stalling.

All devs seem to be simplifying their RTS games these days.

Considering most of them are PC exclusives, i.e. CnC4 and Dawn of War 2, I think it is simplification, not consolization.

I knew from the PC Gamer article on this they were shooting for casual gamers with 10 year old PCs, they said that flat-out in the article.

And yes the game looks like ass.

I was hoping the graphics and gameplay would be a step forward. Unfortunately, it seems that both have taken a step backwards.

What gives? Is this seriously the much anticipated sequal to one of the best (IMO) RTS games of this era? I'm pretty disappointed.

Oy WTF happened to Supreme Commander. This has been a bad year for strategy games the only beacon of hope is that at least N:TW is decent.

I think Starcraft 2 might perk it all up just a bit.

Yes it just feels a bit like a ghost similar to Alan Wake. You know it's coming out but it doesn't feel like it. I guess if I would have gotten in the beta it would have felt like it.

I didn't like it, it was like going from Deus Ex 1 to DX2...really bad move for this game.
