Brad when is the review going up? I know what score you'll give it but I'm eager to read it and probably bitch about it.

@Brad: There must be a follow-up video to this. Give whoever came up with this video feature a high five.

What res is your webcam? because it looks stretched. You need to get a MS LiveCinema HD 720p cam to do blogs.

@Stargate174: 
 
It's just a built-in MacBook webcam which I think only does 640x480. The aspect ratio is correct but I did crop it to 16x9, and I also rendered out the final video at a higher res than that, so the compression is probably not great.
 
We have some Flips and Zi8s in the office, I'll probably use one of those if I do this kind of video again.

" Hey Brad, I need your help! Ive been having a lot of issues defending against Void Ray rushes from the protoss, especially when I am playing Zerg (Which seem pretty underpowered!). Any suggestions for how to deal with them, or how your Void rushes get stopped if you ever try them? I try and scout em out as best I can, but if they have their entrance blocked off, I wont know until its too late. "

I would suggest that if they close the entrance to their base that may be a sign of these void ray rushes and you can plan accordingly otherwise, tech to hydras with  a good mix of other units and expand, making sure your bases are connected with creep to limit harras cause hydras are just so fast on creep 
 
edit: Also, my favorite way to deal with a strat that i have trouble with is to not deal with it.  and by that I mean say if you have problems with mech pushes when you are playing protoss, maybe you go for early void rays or phoenixes to harras/make mech ineffective "forcing" your opponent to do something different

  To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women

Why was there no quicklook for this game?

#532 Edited by mellotronrules (1192 posts) -

@hellbound: because the final game hasn't unlocked yet. they could have done the beta, i guess- but blizzard's always messing with stuff in the beta, so what would be the point?
