I'm excited that they finally sound like they're trying to break the mold a bit. It really needed to happen at this point in the series.

For me, the price of upgrading isn't the main issue - it's that the games I'm actually interested in are so few and far between now that upgrading my PC for gaming alone would be a serious waste of cash. All the rest of the things I do on the PC I can still do just as well as when I first bought this rig almost 5 years ago (though admittedly I could use some more RAM nowadays - 768 MB can be annoying at times).

already gave up on pc gaming. rig's going on 5 years old and at this point I don't have any plans on upgrading again until something dies... but this game's been the first game in a long time that's made me think twice about it.

If SC2 is anything like the first, then... uh, probably not like Starcraft 2 at all, no.

Go check GPGNet and see how many people are still playing this. A lot more than 3.

I just assumed, interesting to see it's still alive. I dunno, when TA came out there was a lot of buzz, and this one feels much more fly-by-night and quiet. I don't know anyone in my friends circle that plays this game, either.

I was gonna add the obligatory "this must be for the 3 remaining people playing the game" post... but I won't.

Have they actually added any new units yet?

a century ago, maps didn't have nearly the complexity they do nowadays, not to mention that the terrain in CoH actually has some sort of effect on gameplay besides providing barriers to movement.

I'd rather have another Freedom Force.

Amen to that - you read my mind.

Supreme commander graphics are very underwhelming and soulless. Granted, they probably have to be to be able to support all those units, even on newer machines.

No, I actually got in late. Most of my issues were related to machine age, I suspect. I have a 4-year-old box now with an older video card (GEforce 6600) and with the settings cranked down to some degree I thought the game looked like complete ass, so much so that I really wouldn't recommend the game to anyone who had a box older than a year or so.

Also, the increase in scale means a similar increase in base micromanagement, such that the game has become all about optimizing your resource management and production to pump out as much shit as possible, etc. For all the talk about changing the way RTS games are played I thought the game was not only not this big advancement but actually thought it was a big step backward.

Ah well. Time and money saved.

I was sublimely stoked for this, got into the beta, played for less than a week, and uninstalled. I can't be the only one disappointed by the game, but I bet there won't be many more disappointed than I am.

After being involved in the beta, i have a feeling the reception for this is going to be lukewarm at best.

I was on the beta for a very, very short time and was massively disappointed (and I was a major TA fan). I feel like the game lacks the style TA had in spades and the grand strategic zoom-out feature only serves to distance you from what's going on on the screen instead of making you feel a part of it. I'm predicting some very average reviews for this one.
