Pretty good deal, enjoyed the expansion story immensely despite the ending getting leaked 3 months after Wings of Liberty came out.

^ They should match it, its in their policy on the website.

Great deal, but I'll pass. Not really a RTS guy anymore.

I don't think BB price matches 1-day sales but most employees don't know that. :)

if I did't like WoL, will I like HotS? i liked original, but for some reason couldn't really get into WoL. Kind of like D3, but D3 I just hated it...it's funny because I loved D2

I was kicking myself last month for passing on the $30 preorder deal Newegg had a while ago, but looks like we get to save an extra $2 ordering now. :) Thanks OP.

Thanks OP, I actually just got a $10 coupon from NewEgg so I used that to get it for 17.99! Hopefully I don't get the same email the guy above me got.

Haven't played it, though general consensus from reviews I read was if you liked WoL, you'll probably enjoy HotS. If you didn't, you probably won't. I suppose there are other factors as well (I guess some people absolutely hate playing zerg?), but that's the gist I got.

Man how could you hat Zerg? They're the best.

I forgot what happened in the base game so I'm replaying it. On brutal difficulty.
