It's pretty obvious I am big fan of Blizzard games. I grew up playing Warcraft and StarCraft and I am currently nearly obsessed with Hearthstone. So when Blizzard adds new campaigns to StarCraft, one of my most favorite games, it's an instabuy. Before Legacy of the Void launched Blizzard let us know we were getting some new missions in the form of DLC. I was of mixed emotion as Legacy of the Void hadn't dropped yet and they were already talking DLC, something i'd wait to discuss after the formal expansion had dropped. That said I've really enjoyed Nova Covert Ops and recently completed playing the second set of missions.

How Is Nova Covert Ops Pack 2?

After completing the second 3 missions I can say that Blizzard is quickly building up the fun and story of Covert Ops to something really great. I don't want to give anything away but the ending of the latest 3 missions leaves you on a cliffhanger I can't wait to see resolved. I was wondering if they would keep the same high quality story telling that we've come to expect from StarCraft and minus a couple of odd moments, I found it to be pretty engaging. I enjoyed the cinematography and the in game engine cut scenes between each mission look incredible on my new nvidia graphics card.

Needless to say if you love StarCraft getting Nova Covert Ops is a must.

What is the Long Term Future of StarCraft II?

I might break this topic out into a larger post because I have the same question for other Blizzard games like Diablo III but.. where is the long term roadmap for StarCraft II? Originally they wanted to tell an epic story that spanned the Terran, Zerg and Protoss and it was wrapped up neatly in Legacy of the Void. They left some stuff on the table for future games and we are working some of that out now with Nova CovertOps but I'm not all sure when the StarCraft II train will come to an end? Don't get me wrong, I want more content and if they decided to do a bunch more DLC missions or another full expansion I'd totally get it. I'm just not sure what to expect or if StarCraft III is around the corner?

I also have the same question for Diablo III and I've heard rumors they scrapped a full expansion and released it piecemeal as patch updates as we've seen with certain zones such as Greyhallow Island and the Ruins of Sescheron. Again I might break this topic out into it's own post but it's just something I've been thinking about.

I Just Realized Nova's Suit Design Is Ridiculous

I really like Nova's character and personality, I just find her suit design to be kind of laughable. Here is an image to look at for reference.


When I see her all I can think is "hubcab boobs." Now I'm not offended by this or that and her suit isn't rage inducing I just find it ridiculous. Like that's a suit that grants Nova invisibility right? So what d actually do? It's like someone asked the question "what if we put the bra on the outside, would that make invisibility work better?" If it's some kind of armor then it's really out of place at it leaves her mid section entirely unprotected. Again, i'm not saying we should censor anything or that I want to destroy games or whatever, I just think the outside space bra is odd.

I still haven't played the first mission pack. I might wait until the last one comes out and then play them.

I'm not sure about the future of StarCraft II either, it seems pretty wrapped up to me.

As for Diablo III, I haven't played in a while, so there's quite a bit of new content in patch releases I've missed out on. I'd love to see more though, I've really enjoyed playing it.

I see your point about Nova's suit, still she's hot. She not as hot as Zero Suit Samus though. LOL
