Thanks. That clears it up.

Ha ha… those things have major firepower. All you need is like 4 or 5 of these guys and they can take out a whole establishment.

I just had a funny recollection when I saw the recording of the cinematic teaser for StarCraft II in Korea…

man, I actually cried for some reason at the end when the whole group goes wild. The love and excitement for this game transcends language. I got chills.
