#1 - Yes. Yes you are.
#2 - "Yah a new alien race? I think I will pass.
TY EA for ruining the C&C Series."
What the HELL are you babbling about...? Both Tiberium Sun and Tiberium Dawn refered to the alien race - my guess was always that they would show up and it would be humanity uniting to take the planet back. The idea of an Alien race in the C&C universe was setup from day one and not a ploy from EA to destroy the world as we know it.
I'm not a huge fan of EA's buissness tactics - but you need to give the devil credit when its due. Here's to hoping it won't suck like generals.
