StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm "99% Done"

"We are 99 percent done," StarCraft II lead designer Dustin Browder told Kotaku when asked about progress on the upcoming Heart of the Swarm expansion for their science fiction RTS sequel. However, he makes it sound like one of those progress bars that will sit at 99% for a while, adding: "but that last one percent's a bitch." He goes on to explain that all the units are in place, but this next phase is open-ended: "It's the tuning and polish that really takes us a long time, and that's where we get into the unknowns."

Seriously...40 bucks for an expansion? Does it make me sandwiches and bring me beer? If it doesn't, Blizzard can F off. I realize they can price it that way because their are plenty of people who will pay it, but that doesn't make it any more sensible to those of us that don't pray to a Zerg plastic figurine every morning. Had Starcraft 2 been more then just a higher resolution version of the original, maybe my opinion would be swayed. Probably not though.

In reality, there is no way that SC2 could have been anything else. The Koreans would probably have declared war on Blizzard if they made it into anything other than the next esport sensation.

Blizzard probably has no idea how to innovate anything at this point. They've been staunchly avoiding it for so long that I doubt it it is within their capability to do something new.

I was honestly hoping that SC2 would at least have gameplay as interesting as DOW(not the stupid sequel) but more expanded. Cool unit abilities and over the top stuff. But it was just upgraded Starcraft.
