Currently not that happy about 3 things.....
1. Battle.Net. I still think they should have a LAN option in that game.
2. Blizzard Splitting up the one game into 3 game Human / Zerg / Protoss
3. Battle.Net. I still think they should have a LAN option in that game.

As for midnight release. Not likely with my workload. There is no point in lining up outside EB Games at 12:01 only to have enough time to pick up game and go home and go to bed.

I want a demo. Do we get a demo ? I doubt it. Depending on IGN's review (which worryingly, Blizzard are not allowing reviews until after launch day..uhm..) i might get it, and depending on what you guys say

I'm not sure LAN is a big problem. I mean it's not like u need ultra low latency for an RTS, over the internetz should be fine.

There is no option for launch day, so midnight is the closest choice.
