StarCraft II Heart of the Swarm Beta Patch

The StarCraft II Website has word that a new patch is now available for the StarCraft II Heart of the Swarm Beta, updating the upcoming RTS expansion to version 2.0.2. The changes listed are extensive, though they note there are more changes in the works before the pack is released next March: "There are still several features and improvements coming to Heart of the Swarm, and this is not a final pre-release patch. Please read the full patch notes and related articles to learn all about what’s available in the beta test."

I never got the contention that SC2 WoL was "1/3 of a game" because you could only play one of the three races. That is a pretty dubious foundation for such a claim considering the dozens of other games that have multiple races some of which are unplayable. Hell, all 3 races ARE playable in multiplayer making it even less sensible of a claim. The singleplayer game alone was a full campaign and it can be easily argued that it is worth full price by itself.

Goodbye my Monte boy. May you rest in the peace you never knew in life.

To me it's the fact it's 1/3 of a total game at a full game price.
I'll get SC2 when you have all three campaigns in a single purchase.

I really only played the single player campaign stories for SC, with the occasional MP games against friends I knew.

2 years after launch and people still believe this BS.
You play Terran and Protoss in the Wings of Liberty campaign, and it contains more content than the original Starcraft campaign. The new between mission research and storytelling mechanics makes it a superior singleplayer experience than the original SC.

The only thing better about SC1 was the multiplayer, and that was because of Brood War.

SC2 was fine, D3 on the other hand was "tainted love" all the way to Inferno...

I enjoyed the singleplayer, and doing MP with my coworkers was fun for a while. There's not exactly a lot of base-building RTS games these days, so I'm looking forward to it.

At least the singleplayer campaign was enjoyable.
Diablo3 on the other hand...

Yeah, that's what happens to anyone when they lose their passion for something and it becomes all about the bottom line instead.

James Woods: Oh that's fun. That sounds like you had a fun time. Where would I fit in with the fun time, huh? Where does James Woods fit into the fun?

Yawn. SC2 should have been great, it ended up mediocre. Story of Blizzard's recent life?
