F2P Command & Conquer Beta Early Next Year

A recent post to the Command & Conquer Blog updates us on progress on the upcoming free-to-play Command & Conquer game (thanks Ant). This includes an explanation of why they are not actually hyping this more, saying: "We’ve decided to actually let the game speak for itself, instead of starting the typical marketing noise you normally would expect. That being said, it might be a few more months before we reveal more information – we don’t just want to tell you about the game, we want to show you." It also outlines plans for an extended beta test beginning next year:
So looking at where we are right now with our game and the ongoing service that comes with Free 2 Play games actually makes me believe that this game can become a great Command & Conquer. And we will be working together with you – The Fans - to make it better and better. As planned right now, the Beta will start in the first half of 2013, and will be the longest running beta phase in franchise history.

Who cares??? I'm talking PC gaming.

You can't talk about one without the other. Gaming on PC took a major hit after 2000 if you'd been PC gaming all through the 90's because of PC devs switching focus to consoles. The last 10 years has been pretty mediocre for PC games (and all games) all around compared to the 90's. Every other game is a sloppy port of some dumbed down multiplatform console game. We could also mention the removal of dedicated servers from first person shooters and DRM/online only in publishers attempts to ram console like bullshit upon us.

You have to be stupid to believe 'it's the best time in 35 years' to be a gamer when game ownership is being removed from us every which way from steam to origin and back and millions of mouthbreathers taking it up the ass supporting the whole clusterfuck.
