Anyone psyched for C&C3's release?  Not too many here have mentioned it yet...or I'm missing the big huge thread about it :)

Demo is due out on the 26th according to File Planet so we'll get a taste of what it is and how its going to play like.  I'm excited...I really enjoyed the original C&C Tiberian Dawn and C&C2 Tiberian Sun.  The whole GDI and NOD thing is almost as classic as the RTS genre itself.  Not to say that Red Alert wasn't great either.  Also enjoyed Generals but it was more generic.

I'm not too excited at the moment since it won't run on my borrowed laptop. :p
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

You can already play the next C&C game by playing one of the many others that have preceded it :p

Don't be certain, as I recall they already doctored Tiberian Sun photos to make them appear more interesting than the game really was.

I'm only really interested in it because of the FMV Cast.

i have this bad feeling that C&C 3 will have the same crap BF2142 has in it.

What, streaming ad placement?

That'd be quite a feat - especially in single player...

I definitely like what I'm seeing about this game, in terms of the story and graphics. A lot depends on what they do with the gameplay though. Hopefully they won't deviate too far from the C&C style, but still add in some new things.

Not to mention that it also looks way better than SC, although as Kalfireth said they have had a history of posting fake screenshots.

If you refer to the odd back-of-box photos I have to disagree, that was some kind of beta of the game where the sizes were whacky.

i'll never be excited about C7C again, they'll never change the style back to red alert 2, or yuri's revenge. those were the best C&C's, that and Tiberian sun, but after generals, and Zero hour. it'll never be the same again.  :(
umm... So i was looking for some of those fun times on the internet that my friends are always talking about... lying ****ers.

Tiberian Sun was horrifically unbalanced.

And I've never been a fan of C&C games - and after playing Homeworld and Warhammer, I don't think I ever will. The combat in C&C games is abysmally boring compared to these other two, and I don't find anything in it for me. Build build build, mass army, send army out, watch soldiers stand two feet from each other and fire their gun until either they or the enemy dies.

i have to agree with Unknown Target, i don't find C&C exciting anymore the last one i played and enjoyed was the first red alert, i hated tiberian sun and i didn't like RA2 they looked to cartoony.  i prefer RTS's where you have to use strategy, not just build masses of units, i prefer the likes of W40K DOW, Company of heros, where your troops use cover etc.

Well PC Gamer UK has a review already (not sure how that works) with a 90% score so I'm hopeful.  I know some people want different things but I like the consistency of C&C overall.  They tend to be just fun to play with small revolutions and a fair bit of style (Generals had the least style to it).

Generals was EA's excuse to put out some random RTS which hinted at the time it was made in.  Big Bad America with it's superior air power and power-hungry technology based weaponry vs, the Middle-East countries burrowing away in tunnels and such, with nationalist China lurking somewhere in the mix, ready to squash everyone with hordes of tanks.
As always, pure speculation here.... but that's how it felt to me.
