Chuiu has opted to edit out the A's for a cleaner more happier environment.

Blizzard has announced Starcraft 2 will be released in three parts.

Terran: Wings of Liberty
Zerg: Heart of the Swarm
Protoss: Legacy of the Void

Blizzard has been a greedy sub par developer of games since after D2 and its becoming more obvious with their recent merger and now this. Disagree with me all you want, the evidence is right in front of you. (Also, where have half their great developers gone? Yeah.)

I don't mind. Although I'd be disappointed to pay that much.

They're saying that the single-player campaign is going to be so goddamned epic that they can't fit it all on one disk.

Also, releasing the single player mode in parts means we get the multi-player mode and map editor sooner.

BE HAPPY

Lord of the Locker Room

I heard something about "monetizing features of battle.net" or something to that extent but nothing specific was said about it. While I don't think battle.net would ever become pay-to-use like an MMO I think they're going to really start milking the market dry, if WoW grind upgrades and three campaign fiasco wasn't evidence enough.

I just hope they don't price the campaigns at 70$ over here like every other game expansion is at.



Show them your butt, and when you do, slap it so it creates a sound akin to a chorus of screaming spider monkeys flogging a chime with cacti. Only then can you find your destiny at the tip of the shaft.

There are so many things wrong with this post ... here let me list them!

First would have to be 29.99, do you really believe the game and each expansion are only going to be $30? Really? Try $49.99 to $59.99.

Second would definitely have to be the math, 29.99 x 3 ~ 60. Nope. Not even close. 29.99 x 3 ~ 90. 30 30 30 = 90. Maybe you should go to school sometime, I hear it helps to learn stuff.

Third would be 'christmas that'. Now many you mean "I'll just save the money I got for christmas for that" well shit you're getting a lot more than anything I ever got for christmas. But I'm going to take it as "I'll just ask my parents to get it for me for christmas", which I have to rebut with: SC2 won't be out till spring next year.

I can't disagree with 1, but
2. I got confused because when I see "29.99" the 2 automatically saids "ITS 60 NOOB". Damn 9.99s.
3. Who said anything about THIS Christmas? I ment 2009 Christmas. :P

2. Good job falling for the greatest marketing gimmick ever created.
3. The rest of us will have been playing the game for months while you still wait for your copy. :)

I'm just going to h4x0rz the two additional campaigns so I could careless, I suggest you guys do the same. If worse came to worse, which probably won't happen, I would not be able to play on b.net while I had the two additional campaigns installed. Of course after that, I would just reinstall it w/o the two additions and nothing blizzard can do about it.

I don't think blizzard will sink to the level of EA with drm, but who knows.

WOW LAME! That must've been that BIG NEWS for Starcraft. How can they fucking play us like that! Vivendi, Chris Sigaty, Fuck you! When TFT came out, it was 50$ and WC3 was about the same price, therefore we are going to end up paying around $175+ with taxes.

They each have to be ridiculously epic to pull this kind of shit. So epic that you couldn't call it epic anymore because it would be an insult so a new word would have to be created.

This better be Largantious.

You know, I think blizzard so just calling us out, telling us to put our money where our mouth is. Last year if someone told you that could get you a copy of SC2 for $150, you'd shell it out. I would have done anything. Maybe they read our desperate please we made into the void...

We should all boycott starcraft 2 and buy d3.

This means that the end of the game, either:

A - Protoss Victory
B - Setup for StarCraft MMO
C - Everything in Ruin (Why...)

The most likely being B, since we all know how much Blizzard likes their MMO's

Maybe they'll release that as an Add-On pack or something.

Relatively ancient and inactive

.. huh. So, in the beginning, the only scenario for multiplayer is Terran vs Terran? Is that what they're saying?...

Crap.
