    Anyhoo, I picked up the Collector's Edition on my way in to work this morning. Bit mental, as I never really buy collector's editions (well, actually, this is only the third one I've ever bought (GTA IV and Demon's Souls are the others)).

    Looking forward to opening it up, the original Starcraft is the only game whose manual I actually enjoyed (I loved the stories on the origins of the three races).

    There is no manual in the normal retail, enjoy it :(

    I'm now stuck with the error "no SCII registered to this account" even though I can see it in my Battle.net account. :(

    Any ideas?

    I've not even installed it yet but have you:
    a: entered your serial code from the boxed version and associated it to your battle.net account.
    b: tried starting up the game and logging on while connected to the internet

    Yeah I tried these things, and it wasn't working but I eventually sorted it.

    It turns out the box/client/whatever is locked to certain regions. My copy is an EU copy. So went to account management and despite it saying I lived in the UK, I updated it to confirm where I lived. And now it works. Bizarre.

    Yeah that was nice didn't expect that.

    I have 2 Guest passes to try the game out if anyone wants them.

    I'll take one of those off your hands please, I'm not much of a fan of the original I must admit but I'm prepared to give it a try and see if it converts me.

    I'll have one if you don't mind. I don't usually like RTses but want to try a really good one

    You cannot stop me with paramecium alone!

    Typical, my student flatmates were there to watch me opening the box and snatched the guest passes and ran off :(

    So when do you think we will see reviews of this? I will no doubt pick it up at some point but I'm interested in watching/reading some reviews until then.

    i never see the point of not picking things up on launch day

    if you wait a month, the hype dies down and people stop playing and realise how shite the game is

    wheres the fun in that

    I actually doubt this will be affected by the 'no people online' multiplayer syndrome that affects most big releases a year down the road.

    The main reason i have bought this is it's bound to have on online presense for years.

    The game is really really good, but that is coming from someone who didn't play SC1 so..

    From what i've seen so far, and having done about 1/4 of the campaign i'd say its AT LEAST an 8, the online platform is brill though, so easily a 9.

    Ok a "friend" of mine would love to have a trial key/guest pass if anyone has one for spare. He is willing to perform lurid sexual acts in exchange. Nothing is too depraved.

    Keep in mind he is ugly as fuck but willing to put a bag on his head.

    Thank you.

    glol...

    Chugging on with the single player and figured I'd have a dabble with online..

    Cool, thinking that there is big strategy in build order permutations, but if you have a single strategy, build tanks how battered can I get..

    Answer turns out very..

    Found this dude called Pietro who had an army of tanks, flying ships that employed stealth technology that I've never seen before and didn't know existed tbh, and transports full of troops..

    I had a couple marines, and a dribble of fucking minerals..

    Don't take my word for it, here's a picture of the carnage

    It astonishes me how often delivery services get things wrong.

    I'm not even angry.
