Good to see you back, mbp.

Any plans on getting Starcraft 2?

Hi DM

I must hang my head in shame and admit that I never got around to playing Starcraft 1 so the hype over Starcraft 2 has somewhat passed me by. I guess I will check it out eventually though, given that it is likely to become a gaming staple.
