    "Wings of Liberty was just a dream"

    One could hope.

    Holy shit chills, and everything was just a dream. Perfect cop-out to make an epic battle cimenatic right at the start.

    I had to laugh that some of the sounds effects are straight from the game but either way fucking awesome. Screwing gaming, blizzard needs to be in the movie industry

    When I want your opinion...I'll give it to you!

    I agree, Blizzard really needs to make a couple of movies.

    Starcraft/warcraft/Diablo

    Would be AMAZING

    I was excited until the the twist at the end :/.

    It almost seemed like a redeeming factor if WoL story was just left behind and we started with this epic stuff...o well, might be good or not.

    I don't have a problem with the twist. I think it would jar a bit if it was real, actually. I mean, you still get to watch the battle, but the story doesn't suffer. It makes perfect sense for Kerrigan to be where she is right now.

    The cinematic itself might probably be Blizzard's coolest ever. You get to see so many units, including what I guess are Behemoths or something, and even a Nydus Worm!

    @EivindL: Go

    it tells me two things

    1. They still have subconscious control over kerrigan or She feels an immense amount of guilt

    2. We will most likely be playing missions of memories, Which would be awesome in its own rite.

    I think that one's a Leviathan, massive capital ship for the Zerg. I would agree, many unit make their first appearance in a cinematics. I'm still desperately waiting to see the Protoss :(

    Hopefully the end Cinematic for HoTS will be a Protossy one :P.

    Rewatching the cinematic for the nth time has made me realize you might right, it does look like a Leviathan.

    Why do you say that? The campaign seems to start where Kerrigan is housed (won't reveal it for those who haven't read Flashpoint), and then eventually build up to Korhal. No flashbacks needed.

    @EivindL: Go

    dunno what flashpoint is, but if its any spoilers I dont want to....

    I just think that there will be some flashback missions, It would make sense, and could answer a few questions. Hopefully we will be able to play the mission where Fenix Dies and then have a small Cinematic or Cutscene about it. if this game is about her guilt, then we SHOULD play atleast 1 flashback.

    It's a book with the action starting at the end of WoL and ending at the begining oh HotS.

    I really liked the bit with the Tank and the Viking. Very well done.

    Pure awesomeness. Ultralisks OP! Leviathan pooping (or sweating?) drop pods! I always wondered where those came from.

    Leviathan in the sky gives impression that the end has come. Feels like it would be cooler without Kerrigans childish monologue but I'll take what I can get, that CGI is tasty.

    Edit: Rewatched it, and what really gets me down is terrans incompetence. Screw any sense, making a bunch of cool scenes is our priority! >;/

    At least there is always excuse that it's just a Kerrigans dream and she's the stupid one :D
