1615 Adore Her!

I like how Carol is Jo’s friend now. Jo isn’t a afraid of her now. I think being friends is good for both of them.

I found my box for starcraft 2 today and used it to get back into my locked battlenet account. I then used my old starcraft cd to unlock those games so I could play them on my surface. (hopefully) But after a 2 hour download for the installer it didn’t recognize the key code I had just used to unlock the game… FUCK. It wants a 26 number code, but my gamer only has 16 or so. It’s valid, but apparently not valid enough. I don’t know where my expansion cd is for starcraft, but maybe it has the right kind of code on it. Who knows. Either way if it doesn’t work, or I cant find it, I’ll end up having to deal with customer service, which I loathe. there’s nothing for it though, but this is why I don’t like PC gaming. Or how PC style gaming has infected console gaming. You’re always connected to the company now. Of course I understand why, but I still don’t like it.
The weird thing is that my game cases aren’t with each other anymore. I have no idea why they would be in different places now. I used to keep them in the same place, but now they somehow got separated. I also have my Warcraft 3 frozen throne but not the Warcraft 3 disc. I mean what was I doing with the damn things? What’s really funny is when I do find them, they probably won’t even work. That will be the biggest joke.

Update: Found the code and installed the game, but it instantly overheated my cpu so I can’t play it on the surface. At least not without doing something to keep it from overheating. It’s really surprising though. I mean it can ruin manga studio and a bunch of stuff at the same time just fine. It onl;y has problems with tumblr and starcraft that I know of.

I like starcraft 2 except that you can’t just play around in it anymore. all the modes where you can just sandbox it are gone because now you have to be serious about blizzard games, because it’s a fucking e-sport. I think I finished the story mode, but cant remember for sure. I had such a mediocre time I didn’t buy the expansion..s? It seemed like the experience wasn’t going to get any better. Also I don’t really like playing as the protoss or… swarm? hive? Whatever they fuck they’re called.

I think the CD key puts it in your battle.net account, and in your account info there are product keys which should include the 26-digit one you need (though I might be forgetting a step somewhere). I had to do something similar when I redound my old Starcraft cds.

That’s exactly it.

Also, your download includes the expansion.

That actually depends. If Crave just registered his non-expansion CD-key from an old retail copy, he may just have the base game. StarCraft Anthology is both though, yeah.

And yeah, the 26-character key is the online key, it’s in the “Game page” of the game you registered/bought, you have to log into your battle.net account, scroll down the list until you get to Classic Games, then click the logo of the game you’re looking for, and you’ll be brought to a seperate page which will say “Game Management” then list the game you’re looking for, then straight under that, to the right of the box art, is a “Game Key”. You can copy and paste that directly into the installer.

Zerg. They’re called Zerg.

I enjoyed the Terran and Zerg campaigns for SC2. Cheesy, but fun, and they manage to keep the scenarios nicely mixed up; almost every mission has its own unique gimmick. I have the Protoss campaign, but I need to get around to playing it. If you don’t have my taste for cheesy sci-fi, though, I can definitely see how it wouldn’t engage you.

I’m not normally a Zerg person, but the campaign made it great fun to command what’s basically an icky, unstoppable mass of teeth and claws and acid spit. *evil smile*

SC2’s Zerg campaign is remarkably easy. There are people who have played it on Brutal using….um, just Kerrigan. I never heard if they used actual forces in base defense, but they used just the hero character to beat the campaign. (I didn’t go quite that well but I did rely on her absurdly.)

LotV is a little harder, but the more fun missions (like the “push a button to move the platform your base is on”) were too short for me. (I didn’t like the epilogues. Didn’t use YOUR campaign upgrades for the Protoss one, felt VERY rushed, but was kinda cool how it was all 3 races for it.)
