With Heart of the Swarm out, I’d love to bring back The Art of Thor. StarCraft gameplay remains a high-level technical skill, believe it or not, especially if one wants to play against other people with any sort of competency. That sort of mental calisthenics has all sorts of ancillary benefits, moreso than what’s provided by most shooters or RPGs or adventure games.

The problems include time for watching replays & dailies, developing strategies, practicing against the AI, and getting back onto the ladder. I’m not sure if my schedule can support that right now. But at least I can go through the campaign once I shell out for this newest expansion.
