    Now I myself dont really like the way this is sounding, simply because episodic gaming is one thing, its a new chapter in the game, but only a chapter, and ends on that note, but it has some completion. Now, taking into account a game like SC2 will be, should be, whatever, We're taking three intertwining story lines and breaking them up into one a year segments, all ive got to say is WTF, I'm sorry but wasn't part of the uberness of SC1 the way all three race campaigns intertwined so you could see the various thought processes going on behind the scenes and get a fuller picture, now basically your going to play the first game, then wait a year, play it again to refresh on the story and then start the second, and rinse and repeat........... what a crock, and you cannot honestly tell me that cash flow issues apply to blizzard at this point in time.........

    I mean give me a break people, SC1 was uber for the gameplay, which is what made it so great, but I really doubt any RTS game has such great gameplay that I'm going to pay 50 bucks for a third of the story, much less 150 over 3 years time for all of it............ its simply that they want to make more money.........

    I'm dissapointed in blizzard, used to be the one company that I could care less that they decided to extend a game development time another year or two, cause they had great gameplay and a damn good story to go with it.......... but this is simply a for profit deal........

    especially when considering the fact that if theyve built a world builder anything like sc1 had that now that theyve got the code written and down, additional campaigns are not that difficult to plan out and execute in terms of gameplay, its simply story and movies and voice overs needing to be done.

    I'm puzzled by the idea of splitting the game by means of factions.

    The first game only about Terrans? WTF!!!. If they split the game, while retaining stories of all factions in each game, that'd be alright. The same way the storyline in the first StarCraft went.

    I agree with C0nKer, I've been waiting for this game for so long and find terran the least interesting faction to play. At the very least they should include the first few maps of the other factions campaigns.

    The extreme level of defensiveness would suggest that not only are they milking it for as much as possible, but that it might not satisfy as much as it originally could have.

    Don't know if I'm going to get it now, unless it really is worth the price of 3 full games. Just getting one would be silly.
