Seriously, it's just bizarre that some of these things made it into a retail game.

But the core of the game is fun, at least for now.

There's a special circle in hell for people who think making websites almost entirely out of flash is a good idea. It's full of marketing people.

Well looking good and glad they're taking the time to communicate still, if intermittently.

My main gripe though:

No ping displayed - This is caused by Windows admin privileges. To view ping in the server browser run BFBC2.exe with administrator privileges.

No. This is caused by your inability to understand the idea that new games shouldn't have to run with admin privileges. That's the whole idea. This is a workaround until you fix your shit.

seriously, where did they find that microphone?

And has it been confirmed that this specific game will use the new DRM? If so, not touching it with a ten foot barge pole.

They could at least have waited until a current mmo dies. No matter how good it is, this will just be trying to fight for the crumbs left over by the gorilla in the corner.

I for one, look forward to more utterly unverifiable statistics showing that everything is ok and there are no problems now or foreseeable in the future.

Very cool. It's things like this that make me hope someone does a mod for supcom2 that uses a proper economy / tech tree.

Hell, I'd help.

The features that concern me though is the fact that you can only build units that you have the resources for (no more resources being deducted over time, only in a lump sum it seems so people don't stall their economies anymore), what this implies for experimentals is uncertain in my book,

Agreed, that concerns me as well and combines with the general feeling of unease around this game that I really want to like.

Thanks for taking the time to post all that btw, much appreciated!

edit: and thanks for the link SpectralMeat some v interesting info in there

Anyone know where there are some vids showing "normal" gameplay/economy? All I can remember seeing is the endgame/experimentals/story being highlighted and that's just window dressing.

I want to know if this is a game I want to play or not, has it been console'd into irrelevance? Or is there something still there for the people who want something a bit deeper and a bit more complex? Because if there is, no one seems to be showing it.

Well, they've certainly succeeded at drumming up interest in a title most people previously didn't give a toss about. Or am I being too cynical?

Came here to post this ^^^

I hope things work out well. I still have not had any concerns regarding supcom2 convincingly dispelled yet, but CT's work has given me tons of entertainment in the past and for this I'm grateful.

Medieval setting is not really my thing, but there's def a market for it so maybe this will be the way to go.

Everyone is entitled to their opinon and thatís fine, but if you really have no interest in buying the game or trying it out than why sit here and complain about it?

I think it's because those who loved TA and supcom really want to like this, but just aren't feeling it. That's me anyway, YMMV. TA I got on it's first day in the shops, supcom had the pre-order six months in advance. Good times. This one I'm not going to pre-judge until I've tried it, but having to wait and actually see what other people think before ordering is a new experience when it comes to CT RTS's for me.

To compare, on the games section of something awful, there was a thread clamouring for beta and talking all about supcom way in advance, but the only mentions of this are in an old FA thread. It shows that the enthusiasm is not there, and that doesn't give me or probably any of the other old supcom/ta fans any smugness.

I hope it does well, I hope we're collectively wrong but we're just not getting the right signals. It's rare that you can straddle the console/PC markets with one game and have it be effective to both target audiences. Doing it with an RTS is an extra level that I don't think anyone has ever done, so maybe SC2 will break new ground, or maybe it's just not going to happen.

Either way, you don't need to whiteknight for CT. He's been in the industry a long time and will do whatever he needs to - it will depend on sales and not on what internet assholes are saying. Some of his recent comments suggest that he's getting into the console side of things more, so I'm not expecting this announcement to be of much interest to the PC gaming side of things. Wouldn't blame him, but as mentioned, doesn't mean I have to like it either.

It's pretty much because he's taken an IP that was aimed at one group, and then aimed the new one at the fratboy console crowd. It's probably the right move financially and he'd be dumb to have done it any other way, doesn't mean we have to like it though.

The fact that the dedicated servers were going to be rent only was picked up from the wording of that "suck it down IW" faq they posted, I didn't realise anyone was under any doubt about that bit...

edit: as in the FAQ they posted right after the MW2 multiplayer shitstorm

All it does is highlight how much of a minority the hardcore PC gamer (the ones that come to this site) is.

yeah, I guess from their point of view, the "screw hardcore gamers" option is working out for them financially...

It was a dick move, but if it makes them more money then they're probably not feeling too much regret

News Comments > Supreme Commander 2 in Spring
10. Re: Supreme Commander 2 in Spring Nov 18, 2009, 17:53 Sleeeeepy
 
What I've seen of the new version makes me nervous. Streamlining and dumbing down are not the same thing. I'm worried that in their attempt to streamline the interface and mechanics in order to broaden the sequel's appeal, they very well may have gone too far and ended up dumbing it down. Time will tell...

This is my very real concern too, but tempered by the knowledge that I am not necessarily the core audience that brings in the big bucks. But by this point with supcom I was all frothing at the mouth (and really enjoyed the end result), with this I want to like it but can't help but go with a wait and see attitude due to the points you mentioned.
