    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    That's commendable but to most people, the vagueness of it is enough to make the Zerg unsympathisable and alien enough for them to not notice the difference really. The only aspect of the Zerg that...

    Oh yeah, I really dug the different philosophies of each of the faction leaders and how that informed their factional pros and cons (loved those Secret Project cutscenes with a quote spoken from one...

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    Funny thing is, IPs that are intended to be a franchise from the get-go are just as often to be prone to these things rather than not.

    The real problem is that the idea of sequels/prequels/reboots...

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    Jack Ritschel voiced Sc1 Overmind. Eiding was the voice for the Overmind in Sc2.

    I'm not sure if Sc1 was really made with the intent of a franchise in mind. Sure, Blizz was riding on the...

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    While I somewhat agree, I think this opinion is also partly misguided consumer privilege (don't take that as a dis, I'm vulnerable to it, too!) and misrepresents what the main appeal of Starcraft is...

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    Seems to me that this is an issue of unrealistic expectations, whether at the time or retrospectively. I like to take things in regard to what they were able to do at the time. Stories for games...

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    Blizz is too large now to consider going back to being "creative". It's all about money now and appeasing the lowest common denominator to sustain itself. Why you should think otherwise even with...

    Eh. I could care less about what Metzen did, didn't do nor what he's going to do next these days. Not sure why you'd bother to still obsess over him (or rather your resentment of him) and his...

    Show us on the doll where Metzen hurt you, Misla. Lol

    I must say, your enduring petulance is somewhat cathartic. I never feel the need to behave overtly negative or cynical here with you around...

    May SC hopefully and finally rest in the peace that it has, for many years now, been denied. Haha.

    The convolutions in it's presentation of time travel are pretty good and consistent and it rivals that of the 12 Monkeys TV series. However, I think...

    Re: The Last of Us 2

    The whole narrative is a confused mess but I get the feeling that what they were aiming for was "Ellie confronts the consequences of Joel's actions and forgives him/moves on". To a degree it can be...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    I don't feel anymore enlightened. Both Altered Carbon season 2 and SW9 were so easily forgettable to me.




    People still watch shows on an actual television? :p

    I can only vaguely recall who those people are and what they were in. Otherwise, I can't remember anything else about them. Haha!

    Re: How are you handling quarantine?

    That sucks to hear, Blade. It only took a few months for it to turn to shit it seems. Ugh.

    Re: The Last of Us 2

    Even if we disregard the subjective fanboyism, it's a structural problem, too. It's a sequel that fails to continue on from what came before in an efficient manner. Because of the non-linear...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    I found Picard to be worse than Discovery largely because it's supposed to be continuous/comes after what we know of Star Trek up to that point and it's not. Discovery had more leniency like the...

    I never said it did. Nice strawman you're building though.

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    ^ DS9 is how one would do "dark" ST properly... not the inanity we've got with modern Trek. Have you seen any modern Trek? It's so much like what Sc2 is to Sc1.
