yeah I'm hoping they fix that

in one of the videos there's also an amusing contrast between that girlyvoice adjutant and then the normal zergvoice "ourrr forsssssesss are under attackkk" adjutant when they're presumably supposed to be THE SAME THING (still early days though and no reason to expect blizz won't fix the inconsistency by release)


If the tits weren't obvious enough they are both Kerrigan, being "deinfested" only removed it rather than eradicating it.


Even such, the Zerg "Kerrigan" sounds to me more human than the actual human one, just with some kind of echo or reverberation effect added to it. In my opinion it should have stayed the original infested Kerrigan's voice, just more Zerg-like.

Also I'd have prefered to see her Zerg part just as how she was when she was infested, not a half-worm, half-human creature with spiky and segmented tentacles instead of hair.

It was a stupid idea to split the singleplayer in three parts. The plot of SC2 lacks the originality that SC1 had. :(

Zerg voices aren't hard, it's just Blizzard has no sound engineers that survived the culling after warcraft 3.

Look at the siege tank siege cannon waveforms. I dare you. I triple dare you. Then remember about the zerg in WoL and the protoss editing.

Sorry, Blizzard just doesn't care about sounds at all. They are just tacked on last minute. If they can't solve it with a commercial CD they are dead in the water and throw the work onto interns.

Normally, I would be somewhat happy about some expansion even if it's very far from decent.

My huge #1 problem that probably won't be solved even in HotS : No cyclic custom map list of any kind thus the same custom maps from even the beta are more or less still in page 1 and 2 except if they got very unlucky via a popularity reset. Something that still persist endless months later.

Activision Blizzard along with the marketplace is probably WAY over-focused to cash-in the future big bad "DotA" of SC2 (regardless if it's their Blizzard DotA or whatever popular page 1 map).

I questioned myself about buying WoL and ended up buying it. Even now, I am still skeptical. As a consumer, I should NOT be skeptical.

Will I be a mindless sheep that buys HotS anyway? Not sure. I jumped with some faith with WoL for the event and in case I threw the rock too easily. So far they still didn't fix that much. So I consider my willingness to buy HotS considerably less than how it was with WoL.

I am more hoping for Guild Wars 2 and some other games lately.

I liked the ice planet and the sasquatch thingies.

And I prefer the appearances of both the human and infested Kerrigan over the post-WoL version.

All the rest... eh, ok. I guess. Has anything regarding the editor been announced yet?

Yeah, I find Kerrigan's new armour design to be incredibly bland. It looks like they've added more blue lights to it since the original batch of screenshots, but I'm still kind of hoping that it's her base appearance, and that her appearance will change during the course of the campaign based on how you level her up, or for completing campaign goals or something.

Oh, well. I'll just be happy that those ridiculous stilleto heels she had in her Queen of Blades form are now gone.

No mention of the editor. Expect some new campaign-related assets and related material. That'll probably be it. If you're unlucky, the map marketplace.

For being one of big new features of B.net 2.0 I'm kind of surprised that the Map Marketplace has dropped so far off the radar.

Or that it's been nearly a year for them to release a map they've been designing for far longer than that. A simple map.

I hope they forget about it entirely.

SC2 was/is an epic fail.

I shudder to think what Diablo3 is about

What makes you think I'm not?

I've opened SC2 only once this year - after I bought it. Played it through and was left disappointed completely.

I was quite suprised to read such a statement from you.
What exactly disappointed you the most?
1. Storyline?
2. Gameplay?
3. Campaign-design?
4. Something else?

Did I leave anything out?
