    This one is a terran-only story. All about reaper training. One of the better ones, IMO, due to some twists...

    Excellent one. More realistic than most, and the first ending of its kind among the short stories we've seen so far.

    Agreed. They should keep doing these to be honest.

    Also, bring back Frontline.

    Tokyopop is dead, so I think Blizzard will have a hard time with Frontline Even the DC comics are coming out so slowly.

    One of the best stories so far - not just because it is good as a story, but because it makes the game world more alive. Compara it to the mutalisk one for example... sure it was fun (and progressive :P) but it was more about normal people than about the monstrous, militaristic or psychic stuff that make us love Starcraft.

    Also, it's not about how miserable Terran civilians are... of course this is an important theme, but they're were starting to overdo it. I loved the grittiness of the Reaper story. Everyone is a motherfucker
