The Weekly: Blizzard's Star Craft II: Heart of the Swarm

Published by Jeffrey Demelo on March 17, 2013

New games every week; every week new, sweet, entertaining, brain-rotting video games. So many in fact, that we often forget those "gems" behind during our end-year deliberations. Not anymore. Each week, I'll be highlighting my favorite game released; this way: the commenters have a target to flame, I have some notes for end-year headaches, and we all have fun! 

This week’s Weekly is a bit of a burn. Truth be told, I’m kinda [sic] bored when God of War: Ascension’s disk is spinning in my PS3. This is not to say that it’s not a well-made product, but it sure is a series that – to me – is suffering from hard fatigue. I’m no longer invested in Kratos’ story, nor impressed with the spectacle of the series epic scale. Needless to say, I spent the week between a rock and hard place.

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm was also released this week but, thought I have spent a few hours with the game, do not personally own a copy and will not be continuing its campaign until I’ve completed Wings of Liberty.

Then there is Ridiculous Fishing: A Tale of Redemption, from the crew that gave us Super Crate Box (Vlambeer). This game is a simple, addictive time-killer of fishing mini-game proportions that can almost be summed up entirely by its title. $2.99 could not give you more entertainment this week.

What to do? What to do?

Against all rules, that legitimize one as a reliable source, I’ve decided on giving the Weekly to StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. Blizzard’s track-record has never let me down and I’m sure the game is more than the sum of what I’ve played. Plus…THE ZERG ARE BADASS! Oh...sweet Kerrigan…

Till next Weekly

    I've been debating whether or not to pick up Starcraft 2. I kind of want the Zerg...

    I don't know how HotS ends, but I hope Kerrigan's rampage came to an end. It doesn't need to be extended into the 3rd expansion.

    It's more new Star Craft II, how could you say no? I'm such a fan of Blizzard work, I couldn't help myself.

    Why do I get the feeling that much of the sales of the new God of War was helped more by the Last of Us Demo than anything else?

    Starcraft passed me by despite all the eSport streaming but the THOTS does look like it has an extremely polished campaign mode for such a multiplayer focused RTS.
