    The psi destroyer doesnt really have a time limit. Once you destroyed it 3 times, its off permenantly, you have all the time in the world to macro up

    Either way, another easter eggs. The Power Ranger Predator

    Very similar? It was exactly the same! the whole time, right from the beggining I was wtfing the whole time. I was actually expecting him to transform into something else when his HP hitted 40%...

    I gotta be honest, I was kinda disappointed when it didn't :P

    What do you mean, the fight is already belial at the 2nd form, you expect him to transform even more ?

    Most achievement name are pop cultures references. Dont really need to list them since its easy to find, unlike some we have to find in map

    If you are really curious, its the overarching plot of an evil entity that is prophesied to destroy everything. In this case it is the reaper and the dark voice. And yes it was dull.

    Here's the playlist for it. This is the DVD that is in the CE. Enjoy. I hope to see more at blizzcon this year

    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSPYueFcAT4u70flY3_u29iE4rONAho_s

    Edit: Here's some brief overview:

    - Cinematic / Sounds: Good, too bad they didn't interview side character's voice like Abathur

    - Esport: Amazingly done. The kind of videos you can show your mom and they can understand esport.

    - Editor tutorial: Skip, its a very basic beginner guide.

    - Cutscene tutorial: Relatively new, watch it for an idea of how cutscene editor work. Must see.

    So to get the maximum amount of spread for your project, you either have to use only WoL assets - or make your entire own set of assets. Because they can't even see the damn map if you don't.

    Not sure if I like this. I am pretty sure I do not like this at all.

    Most, and i mean most people who have bought WoL and enjoy the arcade, or the campaign, would consider buying the expansion to get more out of it. People who enjoy specific map will also encourage us to spice up the models and add HotS model in for them. Progamers would have to get the expansion to keep up with tournaments. That leave the percentage of people who have WoL and does not want HotS are the one already quit the game a long time ago. I consider this issue to be trivial

    They could put it on as a map that is available on SC2's Starter Edition, which is free. But I'm thinking they need more control than that, matchmaking, lobby, team. Failure to provide these feature automatically -1 it compared to Dota 2. It make sense to be a standalone client, i just wish they try to find a way to incoporate into sc2's license system. A free game's exposure to the Arcade is a good idea.

    (I just used -1 as a verb)

    Kinda old news, my guess is not All-Stars, could be a new mobile game of some sort.

    Quote from LitePollution9: Go

    After beating the campaign I find myself feeling a little bit underwhelmed and I'm not entirely sure why... I think one thing that attribute to it is that the story was incredibly straight forward and I saw everything coming, I knew Jim Raynor didn't die, I knew even though he got mad he would come back in the end mission, I knew Kerrigan was going to live even though she impaled herself. I never had that moment where I was at the edge of my seat completely unsure as to what was going to happen next. I would have liked to have been shocked a little bit with something I didn't see coming or an epic plot twist, but at the end I found the ending to be a little anti climactic. I just found that Blizzard played it to safe, even with Kerrigan's transformation she comes out looking identical to her old self, no genetic differences? And Mengsk is killed with the very original light flashing out the eyes and mouth then exploding that has been used over and over again in movies and video games, probably because it's the only pretty way to make someone explode.

    I could go on but what I'm getting at is that the story could have taken many more risks that would have made it epic but instead kind of sits on the edge of epic. It would have been perfect if it just had a really good twist at the end and I think Blizzard missed a huge opportunity to really take the game to the next level.

    Since the ending cinematic is leaked, we know exactly who is going to live and who is going to die. Nevertheless the experience is still top notch. They did a wonderful job on all the cinematics, cutscenes and missions. Not sure about taking more risks, but pretty much the story is fleshed out since WoL. Even they can't change much of the leaked cinematic (remember, their cinematic department takes years to produce one). I'm glad they did take the community's feedback (mentioning Fenix out of nowhere etc...)

    On a side note, do we know exactly if Dehaka is the same zergling with a wounded claw Kerrigan picked up in "Transmission". I never hear any character mentions it, they just the same wounded claw.

    @JacktheArcher: Go

    Cinematic Section of the files.

    Unfortunately that part is prerendered, you wont likely find that model

    Edit: Another neat things, there are 2 different prerendered version of the Warfield cutscene, where Kerrigan is human and primal form

    Oh god, the story seeding for the larva broodmother on the Protoss ship outside Shakuras... Gets me excited to think how that will come back to bite Kerrigan in the ass

    That level really got me excited for LotV, Protoss is getting very few love in the game so far. (No protoss unit has been featured on a cinematic with the exception of zeratul)

    For those who have completed the campaign, what did you think about the story ? Does it satisfy you ? Does the little changes from the leaked previs video good enough ? What do you think LotV will cover ?

    And feel free to post all the nifty things you find on the campaign as well.

    For me, the favorite characters was Abathur. And lulz at the direct copy of Belial boss fight from D3
