I know some people hate this but C&C3 is the logical evolution of the series.  It wasn't made or marketed as a revolution.  Some of the gameplay dynamics are old yes but I do happen to like those dynamics

I agree with that I really like that they haven't changed much and it plays like previous CnC games, a must buy game for me

I just played the demo (not all of it), as expected it just run on the lowest setting, but that's bereable, so far I really liked it, I'm actually looking foward to the game when it comes out. :)

 
I've been sinking a lot of time into the demo over the past few days, and man am I loving it. I have gotten past the point of playing for serious, and am now dicking around. One of the funnest things I have done so far is get about 200 units, infantry and vehicles, and then ordering them to get picked up by the Ox transports and sending them into the Nod base... My word does it slow the game down like none other, but its hilarious to watch 200 transports drop onto the base and watching it die in about a second. I mean, you can't see anything except a sea of units then all of a sudde a "You are Victorious" logo pops up... God, I can't wait for the full version.

I can't wait to see multiple AIs fight each other in skirmish. As far as goofing off goes, that was probably the highlight of the previous C&C games. :D

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences.

I just got the C&C demo.  I'm kind of liking it - though I keep trying to do Supreme Commander-style zoom.  It feels good to have units with personality again, as much as I love Supreme Commander.

I downloaded it a couple days ago, and it has kept me from going to my research lab on time, and I almost even missed my calculus class this last friday.

I like it very much. Despite the fact that I constantly get defeated by the skirmish AI on medium, it is almost fun to just watch your base get shot to pieces...

My opinion on it all is that it hasn't really changed since the olden days; GDI is still all about the huge medium and mammoth tank rush(took 12 predators and 4 mammoths on aggressive, and they ANNIHILATED the NOD base in 1:30), NOD is still all about the specialized infantry and vehicles. (like attack cycles...cost me a couple of predators before i thought to put an infantry buffer in front of my tank wave)


and...Joseph Kucan is still Kane.  :D

I do however miss Frank Klepacki's music a WHOLE bunch. Anyone know why he didn't do the music for C&C3?

All in all, it seems like a game very true to the C&C series. I'm going to have to get a job or something in order to get this AND Quake Wars when they come out.

You and me both... I'm fairly certain that he didn't do the music because he now works with the other ex-Westwood developers at Petroglyph.

IDK if I'll ever get used to seeing a dozen stars from other shows though.  although, I like the Star Wars guys = GDI Generals theme.  In Tiberian Sun, Darth Vader's voice actor was the big bad General, now it's Lando.  Sweet!

I just hope this one's story is as immersive as TS was.  And how does Kane keep coming back to life?

Well, i don't think that GDI has ever had conclusive evidence to show that they MUST have killed Kane...IIRC they just assume that he's been killed and never bother to really check.

Metallo-Kane? :confused:

I think he's referring to Kane's new look in Tiberian Sun.

 
well, in the movie in the demo where Kane is seen, he's not metallo-Kane, yet remember when he first revealed to NOD he was still alive, he wasn't metallo-Kane then either, but only when McNeal is there trying to kill him.

However:

I would think McNeal running him through the heart with a sword would be about as close to dead as you can get...

Yeah, because getting impaled is much worse than getting vapourised by an orbital superlaser. :rolleyes:
