Another game that I forgot existed because it isn't on Steam or Amazon downloads.

You are aware that Blizzard has digital downloads right?

SC2 feels like it's taking place in an alternate universe to SC1 and that's a bad thing.
Apparently we're playing different games. Then again, considering that the story from WOL fits the lore I can see how that would be a problem for some people.

Better idea: Just replay SC1. SC2 was such a let-down in terms of finishing the story I facepalmed. They left the sequel too long and now the sequel reeks of wow-dev retardedness.

SC2 feels like it's taking place in an alternate universe to SC1 and that's a bad thing.

First Blizzard game I'm gonna skip after Diablo 3 bored me to death. I'll have to watch the cutscenes of HotS at some point, though.

Didn't manage to finish the first Starcraft 2 campaign yet. Just lost interest at some point. I might restart the game.

Does this expansion add any improvements to Starcraft 2? I know remarkably little because of my "too little too late" demeanor tbh.

This motivates me to finally finish the Terran campaign if it kills me. Terrans have always been my favorite anyway. Protoss: least favorite
