If you're looking for a good recent series to watch:









Up until last week, I hadn't watched any Starcraft for a long time, and I've got to say, top players have really pushed up the skill cap.

As always I'll be buying the collectors edition for all the cross-game bonuses and playing the single player. Might get into Multiplayer for the Archon mode with a friend though, that could be cool to do.

holy crap

LotV is standalone too. Craziest thing is that they are totally reworking econ. 6 mineral patches, and everyone starts out with 12 workers.

sick.

I liked the hots cinematic better, but I may or may not have made some sort of girlish girly girl-noise when the two templar did their thing.

Just finished Campaign for LotV.

Spoilers ahead, so quit reading now if you give a shit. I'm not tagging.

First, lets revisit my thoughts about HotS:

Welp, Campaign is beat.

I'll separate my thoughts into two catagories: non-spoiler, and spoiler.

Firstly, from a mechanical perspective, I felt the campaign was weaker than WoL's. The missions are overall less interesting, the characters are far weaker (though really, how do you make zerg interesting since it's a fucking hivemind) and the "Hero level up" system, while cool, is mostly useless if you actually know how to macro at all. It does make you feel like you're this incredible psionic zerg queen, though.

The "in between" parts are far less interesting. I found myself eagerly looking forward to exploring the Hyperion and talking to everyone after each mission in WoL, in HotS the characters are boring for the most part. I found myself missing Tychus and Tosh and Matt and the News station girl/guy.

Alright, spoilers follow. They assume you've beaten the game.

Kerrigan's new form was cool, I could dig the ghost suit with zerglocks, but then she gets a new transformation...right back into original fucking Queen of Blades. Now, I like the Queen of Blades look, but shit.

Wow, Duran/Narud went down like a fucking chump. I really, really hope that wasn't it for him. I mean, come the fuck on.

Wow, Mengsk went down like a fucking chump. I did like the part where he swiveled around with a cigar in his mouth all JUST ACCORDING TO KEIKAKU though. HEY MENGSK MAYBE USE THE ARTIFACT TO SAVE YOUR FUCKING PLANET OR SOMETHING INSTEAD OF SAVING IT AS YOUR FINAL ACE IN THE HOLE BUT THEN LOSING ANYWAY BECAUSE YOU GOT CAUGHT MONOLOGUING

Thanks Jimmy. For everything.

Note: Kerrigan died on the way back to her home planet

OH NO AMON IS BACK MY OLD GOD BACK HEY NOWWWWWW, HEY NOWWWWW, MY OLD GOD BACK

guess we better head to hyjal to have a three way team up to stop him from destroying the tree of life or whatever

all in all, I rate this game 7 banelings being kited by 10 marines cause you're off creep and you haven't finished speed yet


So I feel the same way about the in-between talking to people as I did in HotS. Namely, that random zerg/protoss dudes are not nearly as interesting/cool as random colorful terrans. Tychus is the man.

The actual campaign levels were also less interesting than WoL. God, so many maps were "blow up these 3/4/5 things that are protecting/supporting/locking the main mechanism". Whatever. WoL again had the best maps.

Wow, they brought Duran back! And Stukov fucking gets to kill him! HOLY SHIT. I loved that part. GOODNIGHT BITCH.

guess we better head to hyjal to have a three way team up to stop him from destroying the tree of life or whatever


yep.

well, okay. it was different in that you were on his turf instead of him invading the worldstone the tree of life some bullshit xel'naga temple that would PURGE ALL LIFE if he got inside it.

I mean, I'm not mad there was a three way team up. It was the natural ending. I liked how they made you play as all the races again. And no tutorials GET REKT BITCH. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T REMEMBER HOW TO PLAY THE ZERG I JUST DESTROYED YOUR ENTIRE BASE

Kerrigan becomes all glowly! And then she and Raynor live happy ever after yaaaaaay. no seriously fuck people who think the ending was "too happy" they deserved to be together after all they went through. also fuck people who said the ending was "too final". It's okay to end a story. It doesn't need a sequel hook asshole.

other points:

Alarak was rad, I love how he's straight up Lawful Evil and doesn't give a fuck. STOP WASTING TIME FAGGOT is his basic interaction with you and that's amazing.

Picking your faction for each unit was cool. I liked all the different options even if some were pretty clearly better than others.

Phase Smith was boring and dumb and I don't care that he becomes a templar who would even care i don't

A-Mon is the dumbest way to fucking pronounce that shit. Whoever decided it was that over "Ahmon" is dumb and bad.

so:

Wings of Liberty: Honestly, an amazing game, with amazing characters, missions, and development. 9/10.

Heart of the Swarm: It's alright. I am not changing my score from 7/10.

Legacy of the Void: Slightly stronger than HotS, I suppose. 7.5/10.

wait nevermind LotV is the only one where Nova (and her ass) does not make an appearance 0/10 worst game of the year all years

Starcraft 1, now in Pog form!

Looks like a pretty straightforward graphics upgrade + modern online support, while keeping the original unit behavior (read: dragoon pathing, reaver derps, etc).
