Yes I'll be getting this. I've always loved Blizzard games and Starcraft was excellent with a fantastic storyline!

However I will skip out on any "World of Starcraft" games...I don't care for that crap.

Necro alert!

I know this game has been in dev forever, fingers crossed that it will come out by the end of the year. Loved the original, can't count the hours wasted playing it. I thought I would post this here rather than make a new thread.

don't know if i'll ever get this game. i liked the first one, but it never had a huge impact on me like others. one of my old roommates still plays it to this date and is so good at it it makes me sick.

Haha - well I'm glad you liked it. We do all sorts of things - cover news about the game, write reviews about products, write editorials regarding the game, etc etc. And I'll post back up later this weekend or the middle of next week - we have something we've been working for quite some time ready to go.

NNNNOOOOOO!!! DAMN YOU BLIZZARD!!!! I ask the question WTF why? LAN play is what made Starcraft great. Stupid decision, but not financially of course, you'd think they had enough cash after gouging the WoW community for all these years...

I did and got my collectors edition but I didn't play it yet. :(

Only reason I went is because a bunch of friends all wanted to go but only one of us had balls enough to take off work to play today.

Still no reviews (at least from what I see on metacritic). ActiBlizz really had this locked down tight if even the biggest publications don't have reviews of this out by now.

I'm guessing no one got early copies so they started playing the game today like everyone else. So they need time to put together a good review.

pretty shocking yeah. Freaking console whores! :P

I'm definitely getting the CE tomorrow (either at Best Buy or order it on Amazon). I've bought every single CE Blizzard has released since WarCraft III so it's not even a debate.

I have however still not played StarCraft 1 :monkey3

I really want to get the collectors edition, but I don't know if I want it for 40 more dollars. I want the artbook and that is about it. Well besides the game of course. If anybody is going to be playing some 2v2 3v3 or 4v4s hit me up. Playing Protoss.

I'm just waiting a week or two to play competitively. By then the ranking will be far more accurate and I will be placed where I should be (hopefully).

Just started the Heart of the Swarm campaign! Pretty good stuff and a great lead-off of Wings of Liberty. Seeing Jim Raynor is like seeing that old friend from your childhood...I'm so glad he's a major part of the story. But it's cool that the focus is on Kerrigan. Smart storyline twist in the beginning really pulls you in and keeps you curious.

It's a little hard swallowing the three campaigns being stretched out like this as opposed to being in one singular game. Though I understand why they did it ($$$$) and it works. Hopefully the last game doesn't take nearly as long to get here as Heart of the Swarm did.

As far as the splitting goes, each campaign is the same size as the original game, so you get a lot more time with each race. If they had wanted to do them all together it would have taken longer to release and wouldn't have had as much content.

:exactly: I honestly believe they wanted to give each race a proper campaign. I don't know how many games give half *** stories when they switch on and off with each race, but Blizzard is actually giving a good and long campaign for each one. Anyone complaining about them splitting the campaigns up are crazy. WOL is a long *** campaign I mean what 30 missions I believe?

I can't wait for Legacy of the Void. Maybe it will be the more "radical" expansion, considering HotS didn't change all that much from WoL.

Finished this over the weekend, pretty good campaign though there are a few things that bother me.

One is the massive amount of upgrades, they're fun but it really messes with how the missions can be played and I think makes things too easy. They also changed some of the fundamentals of Zerg play that might confuse people if they've never used Zerg in multiplayer before since it's different.

I'm also a bit disappointed in the cinematics, for the most part they are pre-recorded with game assets, unlike before there's barely anything that's rendered in real time, and instead of there being 4 high quality cinematics there's only 2. I don't know if it's just me but I like the idea of cinematics actually rendering on the machine, even if the pre-recorded ones have some effects that aren't possible in the engine. And the high quality ones are like a reward so it's kind of disappointing that there's only the opening cinematic (that we've already seen) and then a short ending cinematic that's done like that. Especially considering this game took long enough to come out.

Drakul
03-18-2013, 08:08 AM
Pre-recorded cutscenes with game assets doesn't bother me. Most of Warcraft 3 was told this way and I still watch them from time to time like a series. But granted War3 had 4-5 amazing cinematics.

Awful campaign. Even more stupid and pointless than WoL.

I still can't understand why call it "StarCraft II" if it's more like a fanfic based mod for "WarCraft IV"...

Bardoon
03-18-2013, 11:03 AM
Just finished the campaign, here's my thoughts. Spoilers though

Great campaign though not as good as Wings of Liberty's Terran campaign. The transformation of Kerrigan back to the new "super" Queen of Blades was an interesting twist but made it feel like all of Raynor's work in WoL was worth nothing. Though they do a good job of expressing the disappointment from his character and trying to explain it as a means to an end for Kerrigan to get her revenge.

I just find it hard to believe that Kerrigan would've believed a news story over Raynor's death when they spend the majority of the game explaining how Mengsk is a trickster, betrayer, etc. OF COURSE he's going to spread propaganda that Raynor is dead. DUH!

There were a bit of "race against the clock" type missions that bothered me. They were a nice change of pace, but it seemed like there were lots of them. I really liked the Hyperion level and how they changed things up. It would've been nice to have 2-3 extra missions though maybe featuring Zeratul or someone else to bring up how much of a threat this "Amon" is. If he is the great big bad guy, hopefully he's featured prominently in Legacy of the Void.

Overall, a great game, damn solid campaign which was fun. I'm looking forward to the Protoss one and I hope that one is lots of fun. I hope to play as Raynor again too!

I don't mind prerecorded cutscenes. I think they do a good job of advancing and moving the story along. Besides, Blizzard is famous for them and they've made some epic cutscenes in game's past!

darthviper107
03-18-2013, 12:41 PM
These are different though, the opening cinematic is amazing to watch, but only that cinematic and the last cinematic are done that way. The rest of them are all much lower in quality, though nicer than normal in-game cinematics, I get they were trying to improve the in-game cinematics from before, but they also used it so that they could save money on doing more of the higher quality cinematics.
