    To be fair, with a game like this there's no chance in hell you'll actually be competitive if you have any other obligations whatsoever anyways. People are crazy about Starcraft. Waiting for the battle chest seems like a good idea to me.

    I acknowledged that. :P

    For my purposes, though, SC, and really, all Blizzard games have been grade A single player titles. The MP is just a bonus to screw around with.

    I'm actually pretty psyched about it, and I think in the next 3 years, my brain might just explode trying to avoid spoilers and further hype. Two more hype-cycles to sit through before a battle chest. This one is going to be a nail biter.

    Even if they are expansion priced, expansion prices haven't been stable as of late. Blizzard used to charge $35 for a expansion, and since WoW, it's gone up to $40.

    That's $140 for a full SC2 in that case.

    It doesn't matter if it's $40 or $340. What matters in the $/hr of entertainment cost. People don't bitch about paying $60 for 10hours worth of God of War 3. Yet $15/month where they play 120hours worth of an MMO is unacceptable.

    Well, obviously personal preferences come into this but my answer is "about six years ago." Blizzard, and the industry as a whole, has changed a lot since SC1. Maybe it'll be a good deal, I'm just suspicious of it, that's all.

    I don't get it either. So far they haven't released a title that'd disappointed me (not interested in WoW, but that's different), and everything I've seen of the SP campaign looks awesome and several bars above what most other devs even attempt for a singleplayer RTS campaign.

    Well heres the thing about SC2...

    While im sure it will be great, Didnt you ever start playing the terran campaign and get so far in it and realize 'while this is fun, It does get a little old starting over with the same building and repeating the build up until i beat this level.....lets take a break from terran and try zerg.'. Or maybe 'wow...whatever the hell the protoss just used on me, i want to try myself'.

    Sure you can do that in multi, but unless your really good at these kinds of games its hard to just randomly jump on battlenet and enjoy a game when the other player rushes you or whatever strat of the month is. It basically makes playing casually impossible so the single player is the casual gamers game. When thats all human only you feel a little screwed out of the experience. You might get more of what you want later...for another 99.99 (collectors) a year later but that doesnt make you feel any less abused no matter how long the human campaign is.

    Up until the last couple missions, you kept getting new units and abilities; the entire Terran campaign will be like that, with tons of units that won't be available in multiplayer.

    Additionally, levels in Brood War through in new mechanics and scenerios to spice things up. With collectables, unlockables and secondary objectives, I don't see myself getting bored of just having a Terran campaign. Especially since I'm primarily playing the campaign for the story, anyway.

    Also, there's a protoss mini-campaign too.

    Well it's a good thing no campaign level in SC2 will be just traditional base building. Every map is a different scenario with objectives etc. and it has the Wing Commander style in-between missions with upgrades and free form travel. And on the other hand what modern RTS had a campaigns with multiple factions? CoH didn't, DoW2 didn't WiC didn't so trends have changed since Starcraft.

    The campaign version will have a tree that lets you choose which mission you go to next, which will allow for a different unit, or open up a side story, etc. Say you have beaten missions 1 and 2, and now you can go to one mission that unlocks firebats, OR a different mission that will unlock Hellions (new to SC2 ..vehicle firebat). Whichever way you go, will alter how the story forms (probably to the same ultimate end).

    I'm not saying that blizzard isnt working to make it less painful. I just know from past experiences (C&C, Warcraft, Starcraft, Red Alert, lots of other RTS) that while yes you get that one neat new unit every level, thats not to say every one of them will fit your playstyle or be enjoyable to you. A break from one area to the next is all im saying that would be nice. Not to mention, youve said it yourself. There will be units available only in single player? why?
