Yeah. You should get back into it.
Looks exactly the same as the original to me. Just with a "WHOLE NEW ENGINE!" as you guys so eloquently put it.
My point is, they were supposed to release it...now, then they cut content, and pushed it back another year. Whereas Dawn of War 2 has been in the works for less time, has 4 races to balance, and is coming out sooner. And yes it has a "WHOLE NEW ENGINE!".
It's cool that you guys defend Blizzard like this "oh they make great games etc". But they also do this bait and switch crap to keep you interested for far longer than you should be.
"COMING MARCH STARCRAFT 2!" "Nevermind DECEMBER!" "Nevermind NEXT YEAR!!...late" "Now we're going to SPLIT THE GAME UP AND MAKE YOU PAY $100 FOR EXTRA CAMPAIGNS!"
Remember Wrath of the Lich king? They were going to keep it in beta forever until Warhammer gave them something to fear, and then they sped up production and got the expansion out in a timely manner. They're just Lazy imo, cause they think they have nothing to fear in the RTS world.
