He's speaking out of "feelings". Funny though, we have yet to see Blizzard give anything less excitable.

Heh.

It's hard to picture a good zerg campaign, actually, now that the cast of zerg characters is so short. I hope Blizzard does something creative there. (Who are we kidding? Of course they will.)

I can picture spooky Alien-ish hive with Creep and organic walls, it might get too graphical for the younger generation though >:]

What with Kerrigan's boobie pores sticking out, and organic panties.

That's the real trick -- making sure there's plenty of characters and so plenty of drama. The problem is that both times we saw the Zerg, any drama came from meddling T/P characters, NOT the Zerg, and that's why the original Zerg campaign suffered so. Hopefully Blizz can work some new interesting Zerg characters into the mix...!

PS: am I the only one who thought immediately of Kimera's sig when I read the OP?

Kerrigan isn't seeking revenge on Mengsk per sey, she's seeking to eliminate her biggest threat. Even after soundly giving the Dominion a whipping, Mengsk put together a huge fleet and came after her above Char. He's cunning, cagey, and seemingly impossible to catch.

I'd like to see Blizzard do away with the constant resurgence of a Protoss/Terran Alliance. I hope the finale is a huge three-way slugfest between the three races.

Well, why would the Protoss and the Terrans fight when there are Zerg around? The Protoss are no particular danger to the Terrans, and vice-versa. For a Terran leader to start a war with the Protoss while the Zerg are still a threat is just stupid.

In other words, the 'problem' here is in the design of the races. Neither the Terrans or Protoss are evil... In fact even their pseudo bad guy characters like Mengsk and Aldaris can often be quite reasonable. Combine that with stakes that are permanently set at 11 on a scale of 1-10, and the likelihood of Protoss and Terran going to war with the Zerg around diminishes greatly.

Even Kerrigan doesn't seem to be so evil as she is bored and all-powerful... Essentially what Blizz has inadvertantly set up is another Mt Hyjal, and it would take some creativity to get around that now. Most RTS wouldn't run into this problem because they wouldn't have bothered with pseudo-realistic, non trigger happy characters in the first place.

We've already seen plenty of battles between the Protoss and Terrans.

It's not out of the question to see them at odds yet again through out the storyline. Especially with Kerrigan kinda laying low for the most part. (Though I suppose she's invading the Dominion now).

WC3 had plenty of NE vs Orc vs Human missions, too... that's not the concern. There's a difference between Jimmy hitting some stray Protoss camp to steal an artifact (probably Ulrezaj's guys anyway) and true Terran vs Prptoss war, which may be necessary to keep the plots fresh.

It's actually rather easy for the "Mt Hyjal" scenario to be averted: don't have the three races fighting against "someone else".

Maybe whatever's left of the Terrans decides to join forces with the Xel'Naga, in exchange for peace and some assurance of survival. Maybe the Xel'Naga aren't so bad, and their Hybrids aren't trying to exterminate all other forms of life. Or maybe the Xel'Naga convince Zeratul (or Artanis) to join them, and the Protoss schism is built around this decision.

Really, it all depends on whether the Xel'Naga/Hybrids are trying to kill everyone or not.

They said the Zerg Campaign will be more RPG-like, evolving Kerrigan with all sorts of neat upgrades and weapons.

I can see Zerg using more infested Terran and maybe even Protoss characters to add identity. I can't see there being a lot of Zerg heroes otherwise, how much depth can you get out of a creature that can't even talk?

Its all but confirmed she'll have infested terran lieutenants, like Ethan Stewart.
