Phu, I think this is one game you need to play on the PC. Keyboard and mouse are necessary here. (well, you could also buy one for console ^^) But the visuals look very good. I like it, even if I'm not that strategy fan.

Oh yeah.. several more, endless gaming hours up ahead!

Whats the difference between this and the one that came out recently?

I don't want to sound like a whiny negative bitch now, but after C&C3 my hopes for this aren't very high :\

Starcraft is still the very best in this genre. It really is :)

SCII looks amazing...it'll be hard to beat, this would be a "tradition" title

if the devs are too lazy to support mouse and keyboard for the ps3 version, im gonna be too lazy to go out and buy their game.

Red Alert 2 was brilliant. This looks like every other rts title out there though. Is it hard to create a world that looks different from every other rts game from teh last past years. Buildings are always crappy sci-fi plastic looking playmobil thingies.

If I get the game it will be 360 only. I hate PC gaming these days.

oh my lord!!!! :D

i really hope this dosnt disapoint, i hope its made by the same people as the 2nd one. im so happy! so unexpected!!! hopefully by the time this is released i'll have a nice lovely new PC to play it on

great news, ok. now to actually watch the trailer! :D

EDIT. just looked at the screens...aww. its a bit zoomed in (if you know what i mean) for my liking. also it actually looks very cartooney....but, i have faith :D

Awesome.........RA2 was incredible like someone else said. :D

Okay, staying true to RA tradition would mean that each nation of the Soviet Union and each nation of the Allied forces would have different strengths. I really don't want this to be Generals 2. How I hate Generals and everything it stands for and in the video on this page the guy from EA said "there will be custom AI generals with different personalities that you can play alongside with." Sounds...like...Zero Hour. If they are so bent on using these "generals" then I at least hope each nation has their own and that they give the boost just like being a certain nation would.

I also hope they don't have Havok engine gameplay. I want Tank X to shoot Faster Tank Y when I right-click him. I don't want the speed of the projectile to be a factor like it has been in Generals and C&C3. If they honestly took RA2 and put better skins on the tanks and better background and called it RA3 then I'd be happy. Is it too much to ask for not a ton of "innovation" (which usually kills the fun factor) in a sequel these days?

I'll be honest. When Westwood was bought by EA I was angry. RA2 changed my opinion. They stuck to the genre and came out winning me over with that game. Yuri's revenge was sort of weak only because the Yuri faction was overpowered, but it still was a fun story.

Generals and C&C 3 both have disappointed me in ways which I can not describe. I bought both games and played them for months each REALLY trying to get into them. I couldn't. And now these screens and their "vision" sound carbon-copy of what they did with Generals and C&C 3.

Not sold on this.

Holy sh!t. An RTS on the PS3. Do I smell mod support and KB&M support along the way? Probably not as EA are not as open as Epic.
Commented on 2008-02-15 10:17:15
Cool! I still play the original Red Alert using DosBox :)
Commented on 2008-02-15 12:33:26
Co-op campaign could be a lots of fun. I think that RA2 was one of the most funniest RTS games made. I laughed quite a much for the silly cutscenes and units :)
Commented on 2008-02-15 13:49:29
original c&c red alert was the only good one
same goes for the entire c&c series
M$DOS gaming :D
Commented on 2008-02-15 16:37:12
yeah awesome. I cant wait. Red Alert Series has watercrafts that's why it was always my favourite C&C.
Commented on 2008-02-17 12:39:23
Why would I POSSIBLY want to buy this? After buying C&C3 for Xbox 360, I found out that it not only hadn't been patched, but COULDN'T be patched. No balance updates, no nothing. EA pretty much released C&C3 and forgot about it. F*ck these guys and their unpatchable games.

Just buy FragFX (Mouse for PS3) thats all

About the game

What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (4 Hours ago)
