Starcraft 2: A Trilogy
Many a hardcore gamer is eagerly awaiting the release of Blizzard's Starcraft II.  Over the past few months, news on the game has been rather sparse.  Well this past weekend Blizzard made an announcement at their signature BlizzCon event.  However, it was not exactly the news most people were looking for.
Starcraft II will be split into a trilogy of separate games for each campaign: Terrans: Wings of Liberty; Zerg: Heart of the Swarm; and Protoss: Legacy of the Void.  The Terran campaign will come first, with the other two to follow.
"[The second and third games] will be like expansion packs, but we really want them to feel like standalone products," said Blizzard's Rob Pardo.
Each game will have certain characteristics to make them unique from the other two.  The Terran game will have a Protoss mini-campaign, while players will see RPG elements in the Zerg game.  The Protoss game will perhaps appeal to the political minded, with elements of diplomacy.
Thankfully, plans for the multiplayer side of Starcraft II are for the most part unchanged.  That is to say, you only need one game in order to play all of the races in multiplayer.  However, certain units from each race will be unlockable should you own that race's campaign game.
Does a trilogy of full-length campaign games excite you?  Or does this feel like a ploy to get more money?

In my picture gallery everything is red..


How can I fix this? Happened in my last install of Vista.. But i'm using a completely different Vista this time (different disk)

EDIT: It might be my monitor, gonna try to find a calibration software (Magictune doesn't work =/)

EDIT2: I just installed infraviewer and it's fine.. But i'm not a big fan of it (doesn't auto rescale large images). So it's just gallery viewer.

Yeah, the picture is fine mate, it is defo' your monitor.

Have you changed any settings on the monitor itself? Maybe you should reset it to factory defaults and see ;)

That picture is FAR from fine. It's nastily tinted on both my monitors which are calibrated to the best they're capable of.

Brooksie can you upload the full 1650x1080? just to make sure. Don't IMG tag it just post a link.
