News Comments > StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Opening Cinematic

I'll be passing on HoTS too, but it's not because I'm not interested. SC2 has kind of grown on me the past couple of months and I've found myself chain-watching HoTS replays by Husky during the past few weeks (he's pretty entertaining). My main beef with SC2 in general is BNET. It's a ****ing mess. I don't care about ladder games and custom games are impossible to get going. I think HoTS gets a lot right through some of the tweaks they've done to the vanilla units, but the new units are HORRENDOUSLY designed both visually and gameplay-wise. They're trying so hard not to be like Brood War (widow mines vs spider mines; WTH kind of name is Hellbat!?).

I'll just watch the important storyline parts on youtube for this one and the next.

That's what I'm doing. Why would I buy HoTS when the multiplayer sucks?

Pretty sure having ladder play would help freshen up the game once in awhile (like it did for D2), but OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHH that's impossible with the RMAH.

Better luck next time, Blizz.

If anyone bothered to read past the headline they'd realize Dennis Kneale (yes the article even got his name wrong) is a 25 year CNBC die-hard anti-capitolism Liberal douche who got a 'token' position on Fox.


Because when I want my daily dose of anti-capitalist ranting and liberal cheerleading I watch CNBC.

Are you sure you're not thinking of MSNBC? People watch CNBC for the Wall Street circlejerk (and stocks, I guess).

Since GRRM decided it was OK to kill off Jon Snow, I thought it was good idea to torrent his HBO crap. Fuck you Martin.

Oh hey, spoilers! Oh well, I guess I should have already read Dance of Dragons. It's been sitting on my bookcase for a year...

Well I tried about 80 minutes last night. First map was one with trenches, my team was getting destroyed, and the "commander" spent the whole match yelling at the team for being so stupid and playing Call of Duty and god damn these free weekend noobs. Naturally I join the other team next map and do better, get some decent kills, capped a point or two.

Seriously, though... the Russians are grey. The Germans are slightly darker grey. I must have spent half my time in the game checking the map to see if that dude in front of me was an enemy or not. I STILL ended up with like five teamkills when all was said and done.

Game ran very well and played pretty smoothly, except the cover mechanic which is the worst done I've ever seen... and this is a game that slaps you in the face if you so much as think of not being in cover.

Yeah, I had the same problem when I started too. My teams were surprisingly forgiving until around the 5th or 6th straight TK...

Also, the new cover system blows. You're actually more likely to get killed if you use the cover mechanic because it makes you easier to spot and more predictable. Just take a few steps back from a window (instead of leaning against it) and you're good to go. It kind of sucks for MGs though.

At least there's less grenade spam.

I've never played any of the games, but it's weird that the Native American protagonist is fighting for the Americans.

I spent about a week playing it and I only had one "epic" firefight (and it was epic) where we besieged a heavily defended base. Yeah, the game definitely needs guys dedicated to transports and mobile spawns. Even then, what's the point? There's so many bases. The maps need fewer bases. BF2 had the same problem with capture points. Yawn.

It just kind of seems to be all over the place, promising everything to everyone. Had he focused (or put more of a focus) on rich SP experience, I would have kicked in day 1. But this just sounds way too ambitious for it's own good.

(Love to be wrong.)


*Enters some random starbase*

"WTS tachyon cannon iv"
"WHO'S UP FOR RAIDING KILRAH?"
"u want 2 buy credits real cheap"
"stealth fighter lfg omega quadrant"
"looking for repair ship 4 omega"

I still have some hope for this game despite barely playing Wing Commander III and Prophecy when I was a kid. It's not sounding any better though.

All the Razer stuff my brother owned (a headset and two Nagas) broke within a year. Both Nagas had the same right clicking issue.

Me, I'll stick with Logitech.

Kind of hard to understand this viewpoint. LoL's game mechanics are a watered-down version of DotA's. Not sure why you wouldn't want to play the source material rather than a low-budget (which has since become big-budget) knock-off.

Watered-down to you = streamlined to me. I personally don't see denying, multiple shops, animal couriers, and buyable town portals adding all that much to the gameplay. While those things may add a modicum of gameplay depth they also make the game slower and more complicated. There are reasons why LoL overtook DotA and HoN.

Oooooh shiiii....

I remember playing the crap out of Kohan when I was in high school. It's all kind of hazy, but I recall it being fun in the beginning, but like CoH the end-game descends into massed blobbing. It wasn't very tactical (no bonuses for flanking, I think, although you kill the expensive support units first if you attack from behind) and strategy was all about unit composition and the number of cities you have. My favorite units were the Nationalist Disciples (fist fighting monk dudes)!

The story was soooooooooooooooo bad though. Oh my god. It pretty much doomed the game, I think. Never got into Kohan II.

If anyone's thinking of buying it I'd just buy Ahriman's Gift (it's standalone). Amazingly, they still have the old Awakening website on strategyplanet.com - a nice place to get info, mods, guides, etc.

Hrm, poor ToC DHs. Not that surprising though considering how crazy the damage was, for a Discipline skill. Still,the 1.05 patch probably won't be out for a month, so farm it up while you can, ToH users.

Oh well, still playing D3 occasionally, but really looking forward to Borderlands 2/Torchlight 2.

I stopped playing Starcraft 2 over a year ago, not sure about the rest of you guys but I've utterly lost interest in any SC2 'expansions' they are going to attempt to sell at +$40.

The sad thing is, it doesn't even seem like Blizzard is intentionally trying to hamper players' enjoyment, it's like they just don't even understand how to make a fun game or something. Nobody thinks .0000001% drop rates are fun, Blizzard. Also, screw the AHs.


All the talent that made Blizzard what it was, is long gone. Plain and simple. They were never good at project management even then, now that it takes them 7 years to put out garbage they've kinda become a laughing stock imo.

Now it's gonna be at least 2 1/2 years of HoTS. This is getting embarrassing. It's been 99% done since June - it's just spit and polish now. LOL. What's the point - they'll still patch it like crazy anyway.

the diablo 3 design puts too much weight on the item system, and the item system isn't good enough to support so much of the game. it is pitiful actually that they launched a game incomplete, untested, broken and without knowing how to fix it.

He's like the director of the Total Recall remake - putting his own "vision" on an already pretty great thing which turns out to be doing the exact opposite of what made the original so great. Where do they find these guys?

I have no intention of buying CSGO anytime soon (I want it, but I've been on a game buying binge lately), but quick question:

Does the entire CT team use the same skin for like each map? It always bothered me that you could have a SAS guy and a SEAL fighting together.
