The demo for C&C 3 is out. I'm thoroughly impressed, but I already placed my preorder last month!

Jade Empire for PC is out today, and my Steam copy is being decrypted RIGHT NOW. I've waited a loooong time for this...

I'm buying Jade Empire through Steam NOW. I wanted it for ages. But forgot about the release date.

C&C3? I'm just so burned out by C&C. Is it really good? (I loved the first... after that... not so much.) I suppose I'll demo it.

C&C 3 is a pure sequel. AFAICT from the prologue mission, they've stayed true to the format and upgraded everything to the current state of technology. There's still lots of cut scenes with human actors (now in high definition), the interface and units are familiar (but with much better graphics). Exciting for me, but I doubt you'll find much in it if you're tired of that format.

I picked up my copy of Jade Empire at my local Gamestop. First impression is that its KOTOR with some sort of pseudo timer based fighting system rather then electronic dice (or as I like to think of them: iDice). The install took 20 minutes...no idea why but thats how long it took.

Steam took a really long time to decrypt the game. Maybe not 20 minutes, but certainly 10-15. Maybe the installer had to do the same thing?
