    Re: How to Rework Starcraft II

    Honestly hollywood probably has the worst reputation for female characters ever.

    Even anime and video games fare better than the bulk of Hollywood.

    Re: How to Rework Starcraft II

    I don't think Mengsk is really a caricature in Brood War. If anything he's the victim of someone who's just more of a megalomaniac than he is.

    And yes tokenism and the inability to please a...

    Re: How to Rework Starcraft II

    I think they're done with Kerrigan. For better or worse.

    And getting some of Amon's perspective would have been cool (ala Reign of Chaos Undead campaign I suppose) but honestly I think even with...

    Re: How to Rework Starcraft II

    I really did not have a problem with Zagara, Vorazun or Rohanna... Silendis was okay too but never given anything to do.

    Izsha sucked, but not because she was female.

    Hanson was okay I guess....

    I thought that he was working for Valerian to get the artifacts was fine.

    The twist upon a twist was pointless.

    Why does the door need to be open for redemption, though?

    Brood War is all about her self-destruction and her new found inability to connect with other human beings. That's what True Colours was...

    I think Karax is by far the strongest commander in the game right now.

    Kerrigan doesn't actually kill civilians in Brood War... there's probably some caught up in the collateral damage from blowing the grid in Talematros, but that's about it. And that was hardly her...

    Re: How to Rework Starcraft II

    She says she does it to defeat the Cerebrates on Shakuras. And then her subsequent actions are to use Zeratul to defeat the Overmind on Char.

    She's apathetic about whether or not she hurts them in...

    She does. She even says why she did it in the campaign in question. She doesn't like the Protoss, they`re her enemies, they`re a threat to her. What part of that is confusing?

    And even if it's not...

    I... didn't say anything about Brood War Kerrigan.

    But since you brought it up pre-OM Kerrigan is pretty much an abuse victim with really awful guilt issues. Uprising strongly implies her fierce...

    Know what I'd love? A map that gives you just your commander, and you have to do a kind of dungeon-crawl-y Diablo thing.

    I'm so getting huge flak for this post.

    Okay. In as succinct a way as possible, here's what I think the problems are, and how I'd fix them.

    Re: [Spoilers] Gradius's LoTV Thoughts

    No it isn't.

    The execution might have been bad (I don't think it is) but that's not bad writing to have a character betray their values and their ethics when something horrible happens to them.

    From Metzen's own admission, she's meant to be Shakespearean. And honestly, that's wholly very, very evident in almost all of the writing. In terms of Shakespeare, almost all of his villains:...

    Re: [Spoilers] Gradius's LoTV Thoughts

    Alarak was played by John de Lancie (Q from Star Trek) not James Hong (Covetous Shen). I didn't really think he sounded cartoony (or like James Hong) at all.

    I wasn't meaning to argue with you. Though it doesn't sound like they're acknowledging the problem so much as talking about a stage of their development where they toyed with making the hero fail,...

    The whole idea that you need a novelization to do complex ideas, or that it HAS to appeal to the lowest common denominator and be a total self-affirming masturbatory experience.

    Honestly, if Zeratul was actually played by William Bassett he probably would sound a lot better. William Bassett genuinely sounds old, his voice wouldn't sound so put-on. Bassett's voice isn't...
  25. Re: Starcraft II Cheesy? The Original Isn't Exactly Shakespeare.

    That's not true, though.

    That scene makes perfect sense. Kerrigan is calling Zeratul a coward and he's saying that he's not afraid to face her. Then Kerrigan boasts that she's not a helpless sack...
