  1. Re: Did Raynor tell Kerrigan she's supposed to save the universe?

    Doesn't Kerrigan mention Zeratul's "mad prophecy" in the cut scene on Zerus?

    Re: Gradius's HoTS Story Review

    The whole prophecy seems pointless. Raynor and Kerrigan don't seem to believe it or at least the implications of it. Oh and Kerrigan's reinfestation turns out to be the right move after all even when...

    Re: Gradius's HoTS Story Review

    Hmm, where are you getting that idea from? From one of the tie-in novels? Because that sounds really dumb. Really, really dumb. At least it isn't "kill everything just cuz" but come on, really?

    Re: Gradius's HoTS Story Review

    In WOL Raynor refers to Infested Kerrigan as the Queen of Blades whereas at the end of WOL and HOTS he calls her Sarah which implies that he does think of Infested Kerrigan as a separate identity. At...

    Re: Gradius's HoTS Story Review

    Well I think it is pretty awkward that Raynor's vow to kill Kerrigan is brought up in HOTS but is not even mentioned in WOL where all he does is mope over her. He also explicitly mentions Fenix in...

    I get the feeling Metzen would have liked to retcon BW out of existence but he couldn't since the fanboys would go ballistic. So he tries to tell a different story without retconning BW out of...

    Re: StarCraft III - Story and Storytelling

    Well I should point out I don't think that "RTS' are about battles" I was more critiquing the fans as most critics of SC2 seem to have that attitude. I do think that focusing on macro things like...

    Re: Gradius's HoTS Story Review

    So I guess Zurvan was the obligatory traitor in HOTS? Why is that since BW SC has been filled with obligatory traitors? I'm pretty sure LOTV will have an obligatory traitor.

    Re: StarCraft III - Story and Storytelling

    Good point about escalation. Considering how SC2 is about some evil Xel Naga who wants to kill everyone there isn't much room for an RTS to go. Trying to tell a more low key story will look lame. An...

    How about Kerrigan? She was originally supposed to die at New Gettysburg to show how much of a bastard Mengsk was and to get Raynor mad. That was it. At the last minute she was brought back from the...

    I am expecting Duran/Narud to still be alive. Rather predictable but his death in HOTS is rather underwhelming.

    Well the zerg wanting to kill everything certainly lines up with General Ripper's idea of Purity of Essence. I'm sure they don't fluoridate their water either and want to keep their precious bodily...

    Re: Legacy of the Void

    We also can't forget Jim's heroic sacrifice to save Kerrigan. You know it's going to happen. Nothing much you can do with those two characters anymore and WOL and HOTS have implied that they will die.

    Raynor says she killed 8 Billion people. That statement implies that he has a rough estimate of the people she killed. In HOTS this is ignored in favour of "millions." Seems they want her death toll...

    The problem isn't cliches it's how you use them. Everything has been done before. And if you subvert a cliche then that becomes a cliche of its own if people like it and start copying it.
