    ... when you get the game? Will you start a custom game up to try the new units? Join an online game? I think I will play the (single player) campaign.

    Well, obviously, I'll first set it on the Altar of Holy Games and hold an initiation ceremony. After that I'll start fighting with the installation. Assuming I survive, I'll probably spend an hour or so just marveling at the menu options. Maybe I'll finally settle on starting a mini-campaign after that, I don't know.

    I wonder if there will be a new tutorial to introduce the "interface enhancements" and the different units... Has anyone heard anything about this?

    Yeah, good call, with the plethora of new units coming a new tutorial to explain their strengths and weaknesses would be really helpful.

    not to mention some of the new campaign features (bribery, etc.) beyond a simple entry in the manual that says informative stuff like, "..and you can bribe the enemy, if you have the money."

    Of course I'll start a campaign to try out the new features and units AND then will seek out MP Campaing ASAP!!

    Anyone else interested in MP Campaigns more than anything else? If so, lets hook up.
    Damn, its about time we get MP Campaign!!!

    I think the first thing I will do when I get the game is to have a nice hot bath and read the manual, (including installation instructions), cover-to-cover.

    Yep, there's nothing like a good read...

    I guess I will just stick to my usual steps of "install, beat campaign, on to the multiplayer."

    heh, Zen. -I got an e-mail from Gandalf the other day; he said he might return if the ex-pack is as good as it looks.
