yes they've also produced much shittier titles and are still enormous

Oh, and it seems Kerrigan has a passive reactive shield. That's why I was having problems... time to squash her like a bug and urinate on the remains.

Alrighty-o, I waxed Kerrigan and called it a day. Here's a full-blown review of the game.

What the fuck did Metzen do to my game?

I'm come to the conclusion that the hardest "campaign" achievement is, in fact, the Lost Viking Gold achievement for 500,000 points. Level 6 is a BEAST

I played with that a bit but the delay between key presses and reaction got me killed a lot in the second mission and I said eh whatevs. Plus hammering the space bar made my fingers hurt after a while.

I played it again and got the achievement... and then went through another "round" and got up to 620k. I went through the 4th round with terratron with no bombs but managed to down him only dying once. Pretty satisfying, but I doubt I'll ever look at that game again. It's one of those games where once you get into it, if you take a break and close your eyes you still see the patterns of the scourge explosions burned into your retinas.

I would suspect there was a feat of strength for 1 million, but then I see posts like this:

For anyone Feat of Strength hunting. Don't go looking for one in the Lost Vikings game, I played for 2 hours straight, got to 1.1 million points and nothing happened. At that point I just wanted to die.

That sounds horrific and painful.

Then again, I've done worse in WoW (Deathcharger for example).

/e

I spawned over three dozen Hyperion cinematic models (I checked them in max - 68k poly) in the editor at max detail settings and suffered zero fps loss.

Yes, my plans are totally doable!

Yep, that's what I figured.
