Starcraft II Collectors Edition Detailed!

http://www.destructoid.com/blizzard-...n-170358.phtml

Quote:
If you're not one for all the extras, you can pick up the standard edition, which Blizzard has confirmed will retail for $59.99. Still no release date, but Blizzard says we can expect that information "in the coming weeks."
So not only do we get to know about the collectors edition but we get information that in a few weeks we'll have a release date. FYI Gamestop has it for a Solid June 2nd release date and I think thats gonna be the release date!!

"IRVINE, Calif. – April 8, 2010 – Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. announced today that its highly anticipated real-time strategy game, StarCraft® II: Wings of Liberty™, will be available both in a standard edition and in a limited-release Collector's Edition packed with exclusive bonus materials. Players who purchase either edition will be able to play online for no additional fee through the new version of Battle.net®, the premier online gaming destination for Blizzard Entertainment gamers.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will be available on DVD-ROM for Windows® XP/Windows Vista®/Windows® 7 and Macintosh®. The standard edition will sell for a suggested retail price of $59.99 and will also be available shortly after release as a download through the online Blizzard Store. The special Collector's Edition package, which is priced at $99.99 and will only be available at retail stores, will include the following bonus items in addition to the game disc:

1) The Art of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, a 176-page book featuring artwork from the game;
2) An exclusive 2GB USB flash drive replica of Jim Raynor's dog tag, which comes preloaded with the original StarCraft and the StarCraft: Brood War® expansion set;
3) A behind-the-scenes DVD containing over an hour of developer interviews, cinematics with director's commentary, and more;
4) The official StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty soundtrack CD, containing 14 epic tracks from the game along with exclusive bonus tracks;
5) StarCraft comic book issue #0, a prequel to the comic series;
6) A World of Warcraft® mini Thor in-game pet that can be applied to all World of Warcraft characters on a single Battle.net account;
7) Exclusive Battle.net downloadable content, including special portraits for your Battle.net profile, decals to customize your units in-game, and a visually unique version of the terran Thor unit."
I'm wondering if it will be a one time/you better get it now or else type of deal.

I might get the CE version, I've been thinking about it for days. Make a perfect early B-day present.

The beta is out to play right now, it's way better than the first but they need to fix some balancing issues first.

oh yah, lots of balancing issues, no matter what, if someone is protoss and they build only void rays, you're screwed no matter what you have.

Zerg doesn't have any Air that can take out Air but mutalisks but they suck!

Mutalisks in a group against other flyers in a group equal, no more flyers in the other group because of splash damage. Sure that damage gets weaker after every jump but considering that by the time you get destroying the second unit that unit is already almost dead and so on and so forth.

we tested that, I even made more mutalisks than my brother's void rays, my mutalisks still lost.

They're just not strong enough defense to withstand the blasts.

we even tried it with my zerg units upgraded and his void rays weren't and they still lost!

they just have too much shields and health. They destroy buildings faster than carriers, 24 of them take out a main command center/hive in 2 secs! while 24 carriers in 6 secs YES I TIMED IT!

It's because hydralisks aren't as imbalanced as in the original starcraft.

nope they last a bit longer and take out a few, but they still take them out cause they have to get closer to the void rays and the void rays are already hitting them.

and they're attack speed is too slow compared to the last game.
