I actually preferred the old Eva.
For a split second there I thought you were referring to the SD Eva. :p You preferred the male Eva?

I can't wait to get the full game so I can have some fun against the AI.  Playing against human players is no fun.  I played several 2 v 2s and either my ally was awesome and we won quickly or my ally was aweful and quit at the first sign of trouble.  Next up in several 1 v 1 the guy I was playing against was not terribly good and he also quit at the first sign of trouble.  I wanted to really try out the Assault destroyers but no go...he quit.  Pffft.  Can't wait for the AI.  Fights to the bitter end!

Apparently co-op single player campaigns are in the box too.

RA2 wasn't terribly challenging against the AI in the long run. After a few experiments - when of course you get humiliated - it was all predictable and easy to counter. SC was better in this regard. I don't know if this remains so in an SC2 vs RA3 comparison.

I dunno, I've always thought that SC's AI was abit limited in certain regards. It has certain 'builds' that it follows.

Although, thinking about it, it is better than RA2's AI. Prism Tanks ruled the day :p

C&C3s AI on the other hand, RA3s direct predecessor, was pretty good.  In most modes it would be challenging enough to be fun.  Somewhat predictable and cheated a little in some modes but fun.  It even tried to use some tactics a few times :)

The RA2 Eva was not male. :p

Ahhhhh. That Eva. Mmmmm. Yea. I prefer her too. But maybe this Eva will be equally ... uh ... competent. :p

That Eva was okay, but this Eva has an accent. Oooh yeah.

"Even God speaks English with an accent."

I don't know who said this and why, but I suppose it's relevant here.

Everyone is waiting to hear what he manages to come up with for Hell March 3. Should be interesting.

That's almost as sad as quoting that X-men fan-dub in X3. Almost.  :ick:

Oh snap.

Made my interest in RA3 sparkle up again.

What are the recommended / maximum specs for RA3? Beta testers if you could list yours and performance too. It'd save me aggro later on :)

I know nothing at all about this entire franchise, but that video was a severe amount of win.

Interesting sidenote: check out the Shogun Battleship concept art.

Somebody was watching Space Battleship Yamato a bit much methinks...

@Colonel Dekker: I've got a C2D E6850, 2GB ram, GeForce 8600GTS on Vista Premium and I have the details turned most of the way up.  It looks stunning and performance never drops for graphical reasons.  Network yes...thats buggered all to hell in the beta but it renders very quickly.  If you can play C&C3 (or even the demo to that game) succesfully then it shouldn't be much of a problem.

@NGTM-1R: I think they were definitely going for that when they designed the Shogun :)
