Thread: SCII Flashpoint novel

  1. #1

    Default SCII Flashpoint novel

    http://www.blizzplanet.com/blog/comm...-ii-flashpoint

    Description, cover and release date have been revealed.

    I wonder, is the cover set during SC1? Could it hint at flashbacks from SC1?

    Kudos to Arkceangel for the Terran avatar and sig!

    It's set in StarCraft II, but I suspect there will be flashbacks to StarCraft I (as the cover shows).

    So Heart of the Swarm gets a novelization? Does this imply it will be more linear than WoL?

    It's not a novelization, it's an interquel between the two games.

    Judging from the cover, it looks like the two are on Tarsonis. Certainly I expect there to be Kerrigan-centric flashbacks at least.

    Enough, I just want a novel about the event during BroodWar.

    As SC2 art moves on, the proportions between combat armor and marines becomes more imposible. ^^

    The cover art is, at least, stylized. I retract my previous criticism in light of posts and that fact.

    But yeah, it's an interquel. Takes place in the two years beyond each game.

    But I thought Hots took place immediately after Wol. I need to read more updates.

    And HotS takes place in 2506, two years after WoL. As I understand, the novel begins at the end of WoL, ends at the start of HotS, along with likely having flashbacks.

    If a word gets used enough to describe something, it is a valid word (as any linguist would agree), whether purists like it or not. Tell me, what word do we have to describe something that takes place between two installments of a series is, if interquel is not the proper one?

    That said, Wiktionary says it's a word, and Wikipedia agrees, as does TVTropes (though it mistakenly says a midquel is the same thing).

    In case those aren't good enough sources, here's dictionary.com and an infographic on various movie terms.
