they should have never let westwood studios go.... C&C3 was the last good C&C that I played, probably because it was the last project Westwood worked on. Hopefully this new one is somewhat decent.

Westwood had absolutely NOTHING at all to do with C&C3.

Absolutely nothing? Are you "absolutely" sure? Work was done on C&C3 before westwood closed down but it was concept work and early unit designs and stuff like that. It definitely was the last game Westwood touched before they closed down.

Yes, I'm quite sure.
True, there were some concept pieces done by Westwood for their project Incursion.
C&C3 used about 3 of those concept pieces (like the Nod Power Plant). But those were just archival stuff.

None of the Westwood staff had any input on C&C3.

Wait, is it based on the game or the original novel (Roadside Picnic) by the Strugatski Brothers?

My problem with SC2 is that while there may be a lot of missions, the overall gameplay length was somewhere around one campaign from SC2 since so many missions were completable in about half an hour. So despite claims to the contrary, it really is paying full price for 3 chapters.

Maybe you haven't played Starcraft 1 recently or something but most of its missions only took about a half hour to finish too. The only hour plus missions I can think of are the last mission of the original Protoss campaign and the last mission of Brood War.

Eh... I got significantly less gameplay and enjoyment out of SC2 than I did the original SC. It felt incomplete, the single player offering didn't actually tell a story (we need all 3 parts to get the story), and the game overall seemed... easier than SC1 (though the last mission was a little bit difficult). Multiplayer is the only robust offering, and I can't see that changing much in the next two releases, which I imagine are going to be full priced releases. If they're 30 bucks they'll be a decent value, but somehow I doubt it.

Let's be honest. If this had any other developer's name on it other than Blizzard there would have been hell and damnation over the initial offering of SC2.

You dare being honest about it!?!?

But yeah, I agree.
To add, the story also suffered from lack of immersion. I didn't feel for a single second as being Raynor.
The first one had people talking to the player, or describing, at least, for the player's benefit. In this one, everything is contained within Raynor. And it really took me out of the story.

News Comments > PC Mass Effect 2 DLC Fixed

Nope, sorry.

Sure, the download/install worked since about... six hours after the initial release (excellent work, btw).
But it still has a HUGE bug - the Sky car chase:
Some people have sound cut out.
Others (myself included) can't even see anything except the interface boxes.

Apparently, this happened on a few 360 machines as well.

Errr no.
Mike Glosecki is the exec producer, not lead designer.

Instead of "hearing" - why not trying it yourself?

It's actually excellent.

Besides, this is both TW and KW - all of C&C3.

Ah, dude, that's just a proof of concept pre rendered video done by a 3rd party studio for EALA. That's not part of the game. At all.

1. Oh... Blue, come on...... Feb 4, 2003, 10:14 Cypher
 
I'm all for a Renegade 2. And maybe with this new consolidation scheme of EA's, the new LA Uber studio will produce something good, with a story, supervision and innovation ideas from the Westwood Studios team and the experties of the EALA team that made Frontline....

But that C&C Renegade 2 petition... Not only will it accomplish nothing, but it is also a bad petition. It's full of wrong misleading info and whining.

Now, if it was a better written and more thought out petition, then.....

Free Dedicated Server.

It is played by many... It's a great multiplayer game. The best.

As for mod community... I just recently (this Saturday) hosted, on GameSpy Arcade a chat session with the mod team of C&C Reborn, a modification for Renegade to bring the Tiberian Sun theme to the game... With mechs, drones, AI troopers from drop-pods and all in multiplayer. You can check out the full chat log and links to screens and videos at http://www.planetcnc.com/community/reborn

Or check out the official website of this mod at http://www.planetcnc.com/ammo/reborn

I'm planning on hosting another chat session on GameSpy Arcade in just over 2 weeks with the mod team of Renegade Alert, a team that is making a TC of Renegade to Red Alert (the original), it's another great modification.

Some of the other mods in development include a StarCraft based modification, a WW2 based modification, a GI Joe based modification and many others.
