Leave it to Blizzard to make another awesome cinematic

now if only the game looked like that :p

 

but seriously, I'm getting sick of blizzard's crap, but I still intend to play heart of the swarm. I enjoyed the terran campaign. But never got in to the multiplayer scene much, custom games a little, but the UI for custom games when I played was so broken and stupid it was useless. (I used to make maps for SC1, tried for SC2, but my maps could never be found to be played.)

Game looks good beta is alot of fun. The system is so broken its bad. Same games in custom from the release being played. No way to get noticed anymore. Warcraft 3 and starcraft 1 system was perfect. dont know why they left that plan

Indeed, they messed the whole multiplayer with bnet 2.0. And this still doesn't have LAN, so I won't be buying anything Blizzard anymore. They did this to counter piracy, many of their veteran players left them (no wonder there aren't any "very" good maps in SC2). This makes me want to do the opposite, because I find no more charm in the multiplayer, a huge component of the game, as competitive as it wants to be, it will never reach the original game's heights (mostly due to LAN, hehe)

I did like the Wings of Liberty beta, so much that I bought it, and although expensive it was worth it: countless multiplayer hours, a good (not spectacular, like sc1/wc3), it was a good experience. Now that I'm bored of it, HotS doesn't capture my attention at all or make forums rave. For this price (full game price ...) just for the campaign and a few units and maps, it starts to look like CoD or The Sims sequel/expansion/dlc/money milking.

I will play the singleplayer at least, if you know what I mean.

I may be cheap with my comment but still, games USED to be priced like that (sc1 as well), and only bad games are AAA priced now (see above + console ports), so I guess this is Activision's hand playing with Blizzard's innards.

Bittersweet. I'm glad the game is getting refreshed because I enjoy watching the tournaments now and again. But I'm hesitant about the storyline, the WoL campaign was muddy, unfocused, and predictable - I hope HotS can reclaim some of the SC1 grit.

they should make a movie about star craft already. its dope as hell, and blizzard really knows how to sell a product lol.

A game movie would suck, it's been tried by the wrong people too many times before, and all good developers agree (make a half-life movie, make a starcraft movie, how about make good cinnematics and better games, games > movies in my opinion, in some concerns as story telling, you can't beat imagination + books/movies). There would be nothing to film, nothing to show, just cool animations and a sucky storyline which most likely would drag the game's name down.

Lookin' forward to it. I think it's kindof ridiculous to compare this to Activision or CoD... Blizzard doesn't push a new SC game each year... they work on balance and make what is in my opinion a very good game. Starcraft 2 still has a practically limitless skill cap. Plus, I find it very fun to watch. Can't wait!

I want the soundtrack from this trailer during my Windows startup.

The viking pilot should get a Darwin award.

Hate watching such good trailers, makes me even more impatient.

I can't wait for the game to go live. The cinematic is awesome but I'm more excited for resume from replay. It's the coolest feature you could ever put into an rts. You no longer have to play 50 or more games to get practice against a build you lost to. Especially with how volatile ladder can play.
