Still sounds better than Sole Survivor.
Still not playing it.

Sole Survivor was great because it played like a regular C&C but focused on single-unit in deathmatch multiplayer. (a bit laggy but whatever, it was basic and fun)

It had less depth than any casual game people here get mocked for playing. Hell, it had less depth than Peggle and that game is 100% random luck.

It was possibly the most boring game a major studio released in the late 90s.

I mean, EA just announced a real, brand new, graphically high-end, PC-exclusive RTS using Frostbite 2 less than a week ago.

People hated it.

Now they announce a Facebook-based free-to-play RTS.

People hate it.

Funny, I've read the C&C Generals 2 thread, and I don't see any large amount of hate for it. Sure, there are probably one or two, but there are one or two people that hate everything. You just tend to gloss over them after awhile.

Sole Survivor was great because it played like a regular C&C but focused on single-unit in deathmatch multiplayer. (a bit laggy but whatever, it was basic and fun) But C&C4: Tiberian Twilight on the other hand was a pile of crap that was nothing C&C about it. (~60% on meta ratings) I don't think this F2P game will do that well because the casual F2P crowd do not go for hardcore RTS games. That is unless EA changes that with their gameplay for this, which would suck and probably will happen. Instead I'd rather wait for Generals 2 to come out which is going to be actually good.

Just ignore their comments altogether if you hate them with such a burning passion.

Then why are you pretending that the problem is the specific game in question instead of the company at all?

Why not ignore it altogether if you hate EA with such a burning passion?

While there is a lot I don't like about EA, on the odd occasion, they do get it right sometimes.

P.S. I agree with most of the negative comments on here, because I love the C&C brand.

I think this thread epitomizes what's wrong with Blue's News commenters.
May be there's something wrong with the products this company announces or the way they make business?

NOOOO! It surely has to be Blue's News commenters!

Why don't you guys just flat-out admit that you want jack shit to do with everything related to EA and Command and Conquer, and stop shitting-up threads with endless cynicism since it's obvious you'll never like anything they ever announce? Why even post at all?

And they probably hire more people with degrees in I/O psychology than actual game design, ha.
Keep pushing that lever!

I've given all of EA's "free" games a try, Battlefield Heroes *BARF*, Battlefield Play4free *BRAIN HEMORRHAGING BAD*.

I guess I'll have to give this a try too.

They just couldn't let Command and Conquer die with dignity back at Red Alert 2. *sigh*

Now it's like the common whore.

Oh also, its for things like tablets, which are shooting off and overtaking laptops. Laptops already had passed up desktops in many areas. People on tablets and phones don't want to pay much money (if any) for casual games, so F2P fits that much better. Plus companies are looking at things like Zynga raking in the millions from F2P facebook games.

Apart from sales and portability, in every other area, desktops are still king.

Apart from the lack of a mouse, there's no reason you can't do decent games that will run on most peoples laptops (just scale the graphics and physics down to 2004 levels and dress it up in a nice art-style) but all the big companies seem to be doing is shitting out terrible, terrible versions of old franchises, with social networking, unlocks and achievements in lieu of compelling gameplay mechanics. It's worse than when bloom replaced art-style.

Not to mention the very stretched definition of MMO.

Of course it's free to play. Not even EA is shameless enough to try to charge for a C&C game after 4.

They'll let Bioware try that.

And no one noticed that here a little bit money and there a little bit money accumulates over time to MUCH FUCKING MORE money those people would NEVER pay when they realize the whole sum.

These are not games, these are money accumulation services to rip of stupid people.

That's part of it, and there's also many computers that don't have gaming cards just built in integrated graphics.

And sometimes people just enjoy a break. Sometimes I want to play a casual type game for 30 mins, not for 10 hours straight.

For instance, I just spent a little time with this little game:
http://www.kongregate.com/games/ToffeeGames/earn-to-die
Its cars, and zombies, and trying to drive as far as you can to earn money to... drive further. Reminds me of that casual game with launching hedgehogs into space with rubber bands.
