Try using this:

It's very easy to use; you can pretty much accept all defaults when it asks you questions; no muss no fuss. And every prompt has a well-written question. :)

For me, the terrans were easiest to "learn" but hardest to "master". Zerg were the opposite. And Protoss were right down the middle. Admittedly, Zerg was my favorite race. As for bunkers + siege tanks, yes they were a good defense if you had them at a choke point. Otherwise they ...

According to gamespy's preview, the number of units per race will be the same as starcraft's, so judging by whats been shown so far, the protoss got some serious axing of the old units :-?. So far they've shown 7 new units and I doubt that those are the only changes in the pipe (so far we got inmor...

I've been playing through Metroid Prime, and now I'm 75% through MP2:Echoes. Saw Farcry at EB for $20. Is it worth picking up? I also saw Super Paper Mario for $50.

You've got to be worried when an one year old system sells more than a 3 month old system No you don't; when the games come, the console sales will come along for the ride. The fact that PS3 sales aren't higher is good for Sony, since PS3 owners generally aren't spending that much on software yet. ...
