Blooper (concept) - Relatively well done page.
It is my understanding that Enemies count as Characters rather than concepts. However, either way having the two pages is confusing and leads to weird double linking. If these are combined and there is a way to do this (akin to other Wikis) as a 'see what linked here' I would be happy to help update links that now refer to the page that gets removed. My personal preference would be to remove the concept page and port all the info the Character page.
You hit a lot of the nails on the head for someone out side the industry. The developer/publisher clauses is a very big deal in the industry, and it extends to more than that. Marketing & PR teams in general have the final metacritic score often as an indicator of their 'value' to the company. Additionally, when Metacritic makes up a score they often get it deadwrong. For God of War III they recently assigned a 100 score to a review that started out with the line "God of War III is far from perfect..."
I love Husky & HD. Watched through a few of theirs last night. I'll try to find the other dude I've been watching as he comcasted the Tourney that went on this weekend. But for a link for now:
Good Terran, Plat player, was in the team tourney this past weekend.
So I think I may have played a little too much SCII this weekend. And watching SCII Replays. And talking about the game. I ended up dreaming about the game almost all of last night and I'm not sure I slept at all.
StarCraft II is a long-awaited game for me. I very much enjoyed SC & SC:BW. I was one of the better players in my circle of friends, but was still routinely trounced on B.net if I went too far on the ladder. I was never one of the best, really, but I was a big Terran fish in my small pond. I played throughout High School and a bit of college. One of my treasured moments was in my dorm days when there was a tournament declared between my building and another in the same complex. My friend and co-dorm resident let me know, since they weren't advertising to girls, that our building was doing their qualifiers. I jumped in, beat all of the people in my brackets (to the surprise of several of the guys) and was one of the four for our 4v4 team. We won the 4v4, and I personally took out 1.5 of the opposing team (my teammates helped on the 2nd attack).
Now SCII beta is here and I was part of the 2nd wave of invites. Having played at PAX I at least knew that my supply depots would go underground and that the Queens for Zerg were completely different. I've vastly enjoyed my beta experience so far, even if I spent most of the first part in copper and now seemed trapped in bronze. My two biggest faults are: Not building enough SCVs and not spending my money. I will often be in the mid game with 500-1000 minerals in the bank because I have still not built more than 3 barracks and/or am not constantly pumping from them. Which leads to a big army vs. army battle where if I lose I've lost the game because hey, the other dude spent that money and I didn't.
As for the SCVs, I know I should be trying for a total of 30 before my first expo. And yet I watch my replays and I seem to hover at 23-25 max before expoing and maybe remembering to build another 5-10 (not nearly the 45 I should have) for the main/expo. I'm decent at keeping my MULEs down constantly, but that explains the mineral glut as I expand later and don't immediately prioritize my gas.
Anyhow, if anyone has cute tricks to help them remember to build peons (other than muscle memory, and hotkeying my CC which I do, I just forget to smack S constantly) I'm open to hearing them. Or just talking more about SCII here. I'm at work so I can't play. =]
As several people have mentioned: It is just the two DLC packs for $20, not the full game as well. Fallout 3, GTA IV and several other titles have released just the DLC at retail and none have offered the content to the PS3. So, it isn't just Borderlands.
I too will not be buying this for all of the reasons you listed. I'm sure. Honest. Really. I'm certainly not considering eating Ramen for a few weeks to afford this. I own the digital versions of SC & SC:BW. I don't (currently) play WoW. I don't need Battle.net DLC (Even if there might be some few pics for my profile), and I play terran so I could use the decal of the the Thor unit.
NOT BUYING I SWEAR.
I won't if you won't.
And I found out (finally) just by going to my Achievements area. I'm very sorry for spamming the forums and if any of the moderators would like to lock this thread and/or exact punishment or request me to delete I will. I apologize again for becoming one of the evil spammers that has happened today. I suspect many of the long term forum members would love to have a quest to be the first to post 'spammer' and link to the FAQ and request the close to get an achievement for killing the spammers. =]
