    ^---Awesome. Artanis is a champ.

    The piece of cloth or whatever disintegrating in Raynor's hand when he said "A lot more dead boys out there. Warriors." reminded me of Zeratul fading into dust. Kind of a nice symmetry there.

    Which reminds me, I could not get into Talandar at all. I mean, I think New Zeratul sounds hilariously like a WarCraft III Tauren Chieftain, but I could still make the shift to this being Zeratul. But I wasn't able to connect Talandar to Fenix at all, in any way.

    Aldaris: Did not! That doesn't even make sense!
    Zeratul: Shut up, I totally did!

    Nor I. I didn't think Talandar was bad as a character. He just didn't remind me of Fenix at all. I would have been fine if they had just had a different random Protoss hero. I did enjoy deploying him to the battlefield and enjoyed his lines.

    I got an Optimus Prime vibe from him instead. It was fun rescuing the other autobots at Cybertron, I mean Cybros.

    I thought the voice was pretty close. A bit off, but it should be, because it's a robot copying Fenix's voice so it shouldn't be exact, and it has a divert reverb effect for it too.

    More importantly however, I think they got the personality right. I hear Talandar talk and can easily imagine Fenix saying his lines.

    I ARE A PROPHET! I've predicted three major aspects of SC2 correct, more or less.

    June 2007 - I predicted the Protoss campaign would give you new tech as you conducted diplomacy among tribes.

    Hidden Content:
    July 18th 2010 - I predicted Raynor would broadcast information of Mengsk's actions on Tarsonis to discredit him and incite rebellion.

    June 16th 2010 I predicted the Voice in the Darkness was the commanding force behind the Hybrids. I'm calling it half-right.

    Aiur has fallen? We'll just build a bigger and better one on top of it! Yup, pure Fenix, and it gave me a huge nerd grin.
    Aaand sold.

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    Of all things to hide as a Stop Poking Me quote... they do explain why the Tal'darim in WoL are against you collecting the artifacts.

    Alarak name drops Nyon, the Tal'darim Executor. Apparently he was sent to harvest terrazine and got carried away, and went insane.

    Well, at least there's an official explanation. And they properly name the guy too.

    Didn't connect with anything for me. It's not like it's clearly wrong, either. I can't figure out exactly why I can't get this guy at all.

    The fact that there's apparently someone who wrote a series of fictional adventure novels (or whatever form of media they're using) based on Fenix was amusing though.

    Ah, if only Fenix knew it's not that simple.

    Where is this?

    And did you notice they were all based on movies like Predator, and Saving Private Ryan? :P
