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."

I might be interested, but it depends very heavily on the price. Anything over 20 bucks and they can go fuck themselves.

Blizzard has never priced their expansions at $20.

Blizzard also said that each one was going to be its own game, not an expansion so no doubt will be full priced. The price tag is for the campaign.

On a different note, my guess is the last 1% needed to finish is how to shoe-horn Diablo 3's always online DRM into this. And why wouldn't they? Did it with Diablo 3 and the customers loved it so much, they voted with their wallets and made Diablo 3 the best selling game of May. This tells Blizzard that people love always online DRM the most

Doesn't SC2 already have the always-on DRM? I thought you had to log in to play? No? (Never bought it)

Ugh, so much misinformation in the comments.

SC2 has offline mode like with Steam games.

SC2 is an expansion and will be priced as such.

SC2 was fun if you liked RTS games and has a large online community. It has also formed into a solid 'esport'. Different things for different people I guess, but I just don't get the guy who thought SupCom 2 was better

That said, don't let me ruin the uninformed hate fest.

i know right? so much superior, snobbish hate from the leet gamer crowd. usually they're somewhat legitimate, but being completely off-base just makes you look like a self-aggrandizing prick.
