Then, can we expect you to talk about those things in a FUTURE stream?

You mean me personally, as in I talk too much, or do you mean everyone on the show, as in you dislike educated conjecture?

The latter, and I don't dislike educated conjecture

Ahhh, I see. I read a negative tone, but you meant a positive one.

In answer, yes I find it very, very likely. :D

Good, I look forward to it. It's just that I've seen way too many live streams on multiplayer and nothing more. I always wondered if there'd be streams on the campaign, even if it's just cinematic parts...

Oh, I know exactly what you mean! Everyone here knows I love the competitive aspect of the game, but the lore and singleplayer of Starcraft is also excellent and often gets far less attention than it deserves.

It's a shame.

Trust me, I had my own theories on the storylines as such (well that was before the Q and A sessions), and tried putting it into fanfics and such.

I for one didn't get into the SC universe for the multiplayer. Blizzard DID admit that there were those in it ONLY for the storyline...

We can actually observe SOME things, sadly not much in the way of leviathan but there are some interesting observations and confirmations about other things.

For the longest time, neither was I. I've played every single Starcraft campaign at least 8 times. I didn't get competitive till my upper teens.

See Ponera, the opening cinematic caused a major rethinking to a LOT of the HotS cinematics we saw.

Going from the teaser trailer for HotS all the way back in May 2011, the Blizzcon 2011 trailer, and now the latest gameplay trailer with some cutscenes, now it begs the Q:

how much of that was happening in reality, and how much of that was only happening in a daydream?

I'm still not. That's why I showed enthusiasm in the SC books, though I never did show much enthusiasm in the comics...

^ We should have this man on the show sometime.

In fact, I'm going to be launching a series on the "Lore of Starcraft." And I'll be asking for volunteers.

Wrote a couple, in fact. ;) Before I started teaching, I was in the editing and publication business.
