StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Opening Cinematic

The StarCraft II Website now offers the opening cinematic for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, showing off the expansion that's due for the RTS sequel in March. This sets the story for the add-on, which is summed up like so: "Whether you ultimately choose to play as Protoss, Terran, or Zerg, you simply must ask yourself one question: Who is Sarah Kerrigan?"

Every time I hear it now (that I know what it is) I am getting more and more pissed off about it.

I was very disappointed when Wilhelm, in Borderlands 2, doesn't die with a Wilhelm scream.

The ONE time when it would have been awesomely appropriate, and they fuck it up!


Worse is that that would have been the 1 proper use of the trope, and indeed, they fucked it up. That was where I wanted to hear it and I got nuthing, but it turns out I get to hear it everywhere anyway, everywhere where it doesn't fit, that is!

For me, Wilhelm scream (if used badly) is instant immersion break ;/ Of course if you got a guy named Wilhelm not screaming like Wilhelm.. I guess that is a trope subversion, and we noticed it. So it must have been intended. I guess there are Kudos for Borderlands 2 in order for not doing Wilhelm Scream for a character named Wilhelm. Maybe they wanted to allude to the fact that the FX is never appropriate?
