    Either Grunt's voice actor is in HotS, or they found someone that sounds a lot like him.

    They should have left the melee damage
    Was hilarious watching them blast apart ravagers with 2 heavy melee's.

    Are you kidding? That was a really minor nerf.

    The AIU has two strong selling points:

    Very High damage output due to various talents - Check
    Able to Self Ressurect with a buff that has great defensive values - Check

    Now, to be fair, but they did not change the damage output at all. It is still an insanely deadly kit and I am still melting things just as fast as ever.
    What did they do to Repair Matrix? Cut the duration and shield restore in half, then they lowered damage reduction by 10%.

    Now, for a buff that gives you over 10 seconds of immunity and constant shield regeneration (to get back shield gate repeatedly) while also providing you with 30% damage reduction to avoid dying, it is still a strong ability. They definately needed to slice the duration, but as it is now, the ability is a tad more balanced.

    ...but if you run a 6/6/6/6/0 build like me, focusing on not being hit, the Repair Matrix is bloody insignificant. If they had touched the damage at the same time, then we'd be talking "massive nerf".

    Yeah I was thinking the same ... WTH is Grunt a Zerg now? LOVE it especially with Tricia as Kerrigan.

    I think it is the same VA that speaks both Grunt and this Evo Zerg.

    I don't see Steve Blum's name on the Starcraft II IMDB page, but maybe it doesn't include HOTS.

    I'm not finding another list of VAs.

    EDIT: Found the list, I searched Heart of the Storm instead of Heart of the Swarm, derp.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2288037/...=tt_cl_sm#cast Steve Blum (Grunt) is not on it. Jack (Courtney Taylor) however is.

    They ask me why I'm bringin' - A baby into battle - That's really irresponsible - And getting them rattled
    I say "give me a break - Get off of my back damn, it" - I didn't learn parenting - My daddy was a planet

    Glad they put the promotional weapons into other packs. Would've sucked to not be able to get them anymore because there are no more weekend events.

    IMDB tends to have missing/inaccurate information. It didn't list Jennifer Hale as Hawkgirl in Injustice: Gods Among Us until quite recently.

    Yay so I was right wIth Grunts VA in the new SC2. Funny how you start to recognize those voices after so many years of playing ME.

    Tricia's work for Kerrigan is gorgeous. You can feel how she became that character she voiced.

    I recognize voice actors in games all the time, though not just from ME. I'm just really good at recognizing voices for some reason. lol

    Yea, Courtenay Taylor. Courtney Taylor is someone else entirely, with a different job description aswell, as I found out just now at work with people looking at my screen...
    Statix will suffice.

    I´m usually the exact opposite. For example I played SC2 Wings of Liberty 2 years ago and only recently noticed that Tricia Helfer voices Kerrigan although you have to mention that she sounds completely different as EDI compared to Kerrigan.

    I´m not that good at recognizing voices only the "prominent" ones like Mark Meer/Jen Hale, Martin Sheen and now Steve Blum. I instantly recognized that Sarah Palmer was voiced by Jen Hale but beyond that I´m just bad at memorizing voices.

    I'm pretty good at remembering voices.

    I was watching this tv show Rookie Blue. One of the actors in that show now voices the main character in the upcoming game Watch Dogs. I instantly recognized the voice. Sometimes it takes a little longer to figure out who the voice belongs to or where I heard it before, but generally I know pretty quickly.
    Statix will suffice.

    So I was thinking that Operation Lodestar was the last weekend OP when I read the blog entry (Hackett) and the Banner Title (Stood together and stuff) and now it seems like I was right after all.

    They are moving the Promo weapons that you earned exclusively through those weekend packs into the regular UR pool which means they can be earned from regular packs and so that seems like they did that because there won´t be any reward packs for weekend operations because if there are no more weekend OPS you cant earn that pack.

    I hoped that they at least repeat some of the past weekend challenges in a loop or something so that there is actually something that keeps you logging in every weekend but seems like there won´t be anything like that.

    So... recruiting Mordin. Noticed Garrus wasn't faded out on the squad selection screen, picked him and Kasumi and expected some sort of "You must choose only human squad members" pop up when trying to accept the squad. Nope. So confused. XD Gonna guess Mordin comments on it and gives him the cure once I get to the clinic.
