StarCraft II - Starter Edition

Since I'm apparently so fond of demos and a sucker for StarCraft, it seems I'm going to try and take the plunge with the new 'Starter Edition'.  I know some of you out there own the full version and I think some multi-player options are available, but they're probably limited.  If it works out maybe we can get a match or two going.

I've read about the complaints and can agree with a number of them, but am not going to get into any rants at this time.  Though it is hard to beat free and as much as I can easily hold off on a $59 full game, I am pretty interested to give it a go.

13% of 6.99GB and about 7 hours to go.  Niiiice..

(here's to hoping the DSL connection I'm on isn't capped at something ridiculous like 2GB)

Game Demos

I've downloaded a few demos recently and have been thinking about how they shape the purchase decisions I may make with games.  Mostly it falls back to my cheap bastard frugal style and wanting to get the most gaming bang for my bucks.

Without dragging on for another paragraph, just what was demoed?
