Not really, Ubisoft likes Steam as well as I can't use Steam for my Ubisoft games including Prince of Persia the Two Thrones, Tom Clancy Rainbow Six Vegas 1 or 2, Tom Clancy H.A.W.K, etc....

Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet. Diablo fans might as well sign up now as well, signing up now puts you on the list for future Blizzard games too.
Hmm... good point! Sign up for SC2 so you have a better chance when you sign up for D3!

Well, you gotta have a Battle.net account I believe...so yeah, at least one game I believe. If you haven't played SC or Diablo yet...might as well go pick up the battle chest for like $15.

Well, it doesn't make much sense to play Starcraft II if you haven't finished I oO There's a lot of story and characters involved, so you may be quite lost when it starts.

Seriously. If you haven't played Starcraft yet, at least borrow it from a friend or something ;) It's really one of those games that should be played by every gamer.

The real appeal with SC tho has always been the multi (as it is with most RTS).
I think Blizzard will make it easy for new players to understand the story tho, that's the kind of basic error they would most likely avoid doing.

(but SC is still worth buying, even not taking the beta into account)

Yeah, I'm expecting that. I don't expect much from a story point of view from Blizzard after they butchered their Warcraft world.

How so? Most of the hate toward Warcraft and it's story now seems to be misdirected hate coming from peoples ill-feelings toward WoW, instead of actually being based on serious problems. It just looks like fans are angry that Blizzard made a game that doesn't cater to them, and decided that now everything WC-related is "bad" (to put it lightly).

(As far as Blizzard and story goes, it doesn't look like much has changed, except that they now hire more writers and release more books. As for the WC universe, it also simply looks like fans are less forgiving now that Blizzard is "popular". I mean really, how many times have they changed Medivh's story before? His character alone has given birth to more plotholes than many other series have, yet fans didn't really seem to care until now. They screw up the story every once in a while, but they always did.)

I'd like to know the reason in particular why you feel like they ruined the story tho. (maybe I'm just biased)

I suppose that's true to a sense. I just hate how they expected people to play WoW to find out what happens to major lore characters. Not everyone has the time to raid every other night.

I liked WoW back before the first expansion, when the original team was still there. They brought in dungeon bosses that were in some way related to major characters, but nothing too defining yet made the game exciting from a world story point of view.
