No C&C4 LAN or Dedicated Servers

There will be no LAN or dedicated server support for Command & Conquer 4, reports Destructoid, as the presence or absence of these two features has become a hot topic for PC gaming. Now dedicated server support in RTS games is not the same issue as in other genres (for instance Command & Conquer 3 had no dedicated servers either), but the lack of LAN support continues a troubling trend. Lack of LAN support goes unexplained, but here's word on the dedicated servers from lead designer Sam Bass: "across single-player, multiplayer and skirmish and all the information is stored in a server. So if you go to another machine -- friendís house, Internet cafť -- whatever, you can login with your profile and all the stuff youíve unlocked is accessible to you there. It all lives on a server so you canít really do dedicated servers with that."

I am just tired of the big publishers trying to screw us. The PC gaming industry is big enough that someone is going to make something I want, so I just can't be bothered to feel like I'm missing out when the big names try to ruin things. They're not gaining control of the way games are made and played. They're just stepping aside to make room for the next big thing, the big thing that they won't be selling. I think it's great of them to practically throw the entire industry to the little guys. It's like what the music industry has been going through in a way. EA and Ubi and whoever else can try to screw customers all they want, but it's ok because it's easier than ever to go independent.

I would like to point to my previous post where you may find some nice things.

Oh, I wouldn't give up just now if I were you, things may start to get interesting.

So... go and find the nice things.
