New Starcrafts cartoon short released, linked above. So many times I was foiled by that lone air unit when the brunt of my army had no anti-air. This is why I am not a pro Starcraft player. Fun game though.

Continuing with the Starcraft 2 dev Q&A Blizzard recently posted Part 7:

I thought this question and answer were particularly interesting(yeah, I sort of follow the Starcraft lore and all that):

"Question: Are Tassadar and the Overmind one now?"

"Answer: Not now, no. But something like the Overmind does not die instantly. Some synapses may fire for a time as it fades away. And at the moment of impact for both of these organisms, they were one, for a brief instant. Their bodies certainly collided, but their higher-level functions, on a psionic scale, also merged. There is precedent for this: recall that Zeratul's mind touched the Overmind briefly when he killed Zasz."

So basically in Starcraft 2 the Zerg high person(trying not to spoil it) was undone. I am not sure what Zerg thing took over, but the devs are talking about the Overmind now being in charge. The end of Starcraft 2's campaign isn't terribly forthcoming but I did feel it closed up the story it created fairly well.

I also love this series. The animations are just amazing. They are smooth and the take on each unit as almost an innocent....being, I guess, is absolutely hilarious.

A bit of a heads up... I am talking with the creator of Starcrafts right now and they have agreed to do a interview with the site. If you guys have any questions you want to ask them about what they do, toss them my way and ill forward them along. Ill also post your name as the person that asked them so you get credit in the interview!

Oh sorry I wasn't clear, it's an interview with the people that do the Starcrafts cartoon animations that is above. The guys from Carbot animations.
