Why play through the campaign so many times?
Well, ever since I could install things, I played through the campaign every time I installed it on a new or reformatted computer, and because I acquired the Raynor Dog Tag USB the other day, I was able to install a legitimate copy onto my netbook. Today, I started playing through the BW campaign after finishing the SC vanilla campaign yesterday (will probably finish it in the weekend), and I was yet again amazed at just how BW was able to run even on my netbook without a hitch.
What WAS new this time around, however, was the experience of playing BW on a netbook. The keyboard and the screen were much smaller, and the touchpad was something I had to be concerned about (I can't disable it for some reason). I found out that the smaller keyboard actually helped in pressing hotkeys, but this was balanced by the fact that smaller screen meant a minimap that was a little harder to see. Overall, though, I found the experience of playing on a netbook quite enjoyable and relaxing (inb4 carrying netbook to BW LAN).
For reference, this is my netbook.
Well now that you know what I do every time I install BW on a computer of mine, let me ask you some basic questions.
- Which mission is your favorite?
- Which mission do you hate the most?
- Which mission was the most interesting?
- Which mission do you actually consider the hardest now?
All with a reason.
- New Gettysburg (SC vanilla Terran 9th), because I can spam battlecruisers, kill everything but a pylon, bring the BCs back, then send anything else to finish off the pylon to trigger the zerg horde. Kerrigan getting surrounded by zerg? Not on my watch!
- Definitely Countdown (SC:BW Protoss Final), because cannons are so fragile against the zerg.
- The first time I played the Battle of Braxis mission (SC:BW Protoss 5th) when I was little was pretty cool, especially the noise that plays when the turrets shut down.
- For me, it is currently a toss up between The New Dominion (SC vanilla Zerg 3rd) and The Reckoning (SC:BW Zerg 9th), the former because you actually have very limited amount of resources (and tech) to work with against Siege Tanks, the latter because of the time limit.
