StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm in March 2013

The StarCraft II Website announces that the release date for the Heart of the Swarm expansion for StarCraft 2 is now set as March 12, 2013, this news coming just a week after the news that the RTS add-on is due in the first half of next year. In the meantime, a StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Presale FAQ has details on the content of a planned Digital Deluxe edition, which will include bonuses for other Blizzard titles. Here's what this will include:

The Digital Deluxe version of includes a digital copy of the expansion along with the following exclusive in-game bonus items for StarCraft II, World of Warcraft®, and Diablo® III:

  • Three StarCraft II Swarm-themed Battle.net portraits
  • StarCraft II Zerg Ultralisk “Torrasque” skin
  • World of Warcraft Baneling Battle Pet
  • Diablo III “Blade Wings” item – Queen of Blades-styled wings for Diablo III heroes
  • Diablo III Zerg banner sigil

Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe edition will receive their World of Warcraft and Diablo III in-game bonus items immediately. The StarCraft II bonuses will not be available until Heart of the Swarm is released.

Ummm... well... most of the missions were fine. I guess I should have said I hated the ones where I felt rushed. The other one I really hated was the one you mentioned where I was in a resource race with some other sombitch. The rest I remember liking ot loving, though I probably forgot one or two.

The one where there was a night and day cycle with zombies was technically timed, but I thought it was awesome. Stop listening to what I say and pay attention to what I mean. Or something.

I hated that zombie one too. I hate most every map that tells me how to play it. Just give me a map and an enemy to wipe out, I'll figure out the rest. And I don't mind a few side goals thrown in there. But if it literally starts going "Okay, NOW you defend! And NOW you can rush for resources! Hurry hurry hurry hurry DEFEND AGAIN!!!" that just irritates the living fuck out of me.

So yeah, I thought SC2 was an excercise in gimmicky RTS bullshit. I'll bet they have several maps in the next one where you constantly have to move all your forces, base included, to new areas to "keep up with the brood" or some stupid crap like that.

Anyway, I hated about 19 of the 22 missions in SC2.
