Ok this is win. Thanks, Brad!
 
Yeah, that's my way of saying that I approve of these video blogs. Was a huge fan of Jeff's "Points" back before GB was founded.
 
With that said, I have a question. What's your opinion on the use of the "hero characters" in this game? In Warcraft 3 you had the rpg element of them leveling up and getting some minor gear. In Starcraft 2 they make minor, if any appearances (Tychus' Thor-related missions being one of the more awesome ones). Could they have been used more often?

WarCraft 3, rare complaint but the campaign was way too long for me. 
i enabled god mode just to see the end, wore me out.

I really like the idea of vblogs on this site! 

Even more so on new games, prolonged games, or even mmo's. 

I feel like vlogs are a solid idea. 


Also, good watch Brad.

Can anyone give me a heads up on how far into the campaign this spoils? Don't know whether to watch it if I'm not very far but planning to play it.

Good stuff dude. The two major gripes most people seem to have is the lack of LAN support and the fact that it's only Terran. How heavily does that weight in your mind?

Is this game easy to get into for someone who hasn't played any RTS's in the past, and would it be enjoyable?

That was great Brad. I was wondering what you thought of the game so far. Have you played around with the map editor,I heard you can import Warcraft 3 and original SC maps?

I can't stand how often Brad says "umm..." and "like" in every video.  Please stop it. This is the only website I check for game info, simply because it's the best, and it really hurts the quality of the product you guys are putting out there.

My main question is does StarCraft II seem inviting to new players? I never played the first game and the extent of my experience with straight-up RTS games is just Company of Heroes (which I liked). Basically I'd like to experience a nice gradual learning curve with the single player campaign if I were to play it.

I checked into the facebook feature. I think it's just friends who are on battle.net. And not necessarily on StarCraft II

So Warcraft 3 doesn't count as a Blizzard RTS?

People adopt such expletives as a means to combat rude people talking over them before they're finished saying what they have to. But once you have it it's like... a really hard umm... thing to fix.

I definitely would like a follow up video on this.
 
Those missions Brad mentioned seem pretty rad. I guess I'll need to get a new GPU I've been delaying for awhile.

In Warcraft III you could basically make your own games. Tower defense etc. I never played Starcraft, but is this function in Starcraft 2?
