    Fixed the link to the main site, I'd imagine at least a few TPU members will get chosen since we probably have the biggest variety of low end to high end gaming rigs that they may want to test their games on.. that's my biased theory :D..

    Any blizzard beta would be awesome to participate in, except for WoW though, MMO beta's are fail you need "EDIT: ALOT OF TIME" to put into an mmo and that just disappears after a beta wipe. :cry:

    Doh! Can't run the system checker until I get my main box up and running. Motherboard is dead and I'm on my Ubuntu box. Time to overnight a new one? :)

    yea, but i don't think we've seen them at max or dx10, but yea i recon those videos on their website are teh general idea, but i still think it will be demanding, CoH doesn't have crazy graphics but it's still a very demanding game, and Blizzard is known for scalability of it's gaming engines not really outstanding IQ.

    I just want a new game to play with 10x less hackers(I still play SC and everybody has a MH). I think they are going for as original as possible, if they stray too far from the original starcraft ideals then their community will grab pitchforks and cause havoc.
    I personally love it :)

    yep, starcraft has some of the worst graphics i've ever seen, but the gameplay is so unique and perfectly balanced that it makes up for the graphics and then some. I can def see SCII being demanding those as it'll have dx10 and i would expect at least good graphics and in an RTS it doesn't take great graphics to lag a system and there's so much shit going on that with just average or slightly above avg graphics is still demanding to process.
