The game is excellent, though I would have made a few balance issues a little different. What I really miss is that you can't build walls anymore. Not that they were so much useful, but it always made my base look complete
Who said they weren't useful?! I won many a game in Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert using only a handful of units and sandbags! Back when you could build off of walls, you'd just build a chain of walls to the enemy base, seal them in, and pick off their men and buildings till they ran out of money. The AI never attacked walls, so it was really easy to do. And then it's fun to build an engineer, put him on hold with 1 second left of build time, place a barracks in the enemy base (building off the walls, of course) and cap the construction yard.
The tubes in the CABAL bunkers are the Biological part of CABAL- Computer Assisted Biological Artificial Lifeform, IIRC. That Kane was a part of that is up for debate.
The actual thing is "Computer-Assisted Biologically-Augmented Lifeform. And at the end of Firestorm, it shows both CABAL and Kane alive still. Here's my theory on what happened after Firestorm:
Kane was on the brink of death, so to save him, Cabal had Kane's brain connected to the bio-circuitry of Cabal. With the way they talk in that endgame cutscene, Cabal talks about "Your vision has mutated out of control" etc. or something like that. Kane starts by saying "My" and then they both change what they say to "Our," and with their seperate voices, they say "Our directives must be... reassessed..." completely in sync. Kane got added to Cabal and their personalities merged. I believe the other bodies in the cylinders were just brains never exposed to the outside world, just used as circuitry for Cabal. Kane was different, having his own personality and experiences.
I haven't played CNC3 yet, IDK if it blasts any of this out of the water, but that's my ideas on it.
