    Where have we heard this before...

    And apparently it's not actually Bioware, it's just a sub-company owned by them with their label.

    I stopped reading halfway. Terrorist blowing a few people up and then that overreacted stuff happens like in the previous parts of the franchise. As if terrorists can turn things into a sort of third world war and actual fronts. And after WWII no western country would risk a war at such scale as it will only lead to extreme costs that won't serve them well.
    More realistic they say. Meh, it is simply the same as usual only with improved graphics. Still without things like routing troops, troops being exhausted, logistics messed up due to interception by hostile armies, etc. but still the "each mission as a next level" thing without any (macro) management on the campaign map. It will be the typical C&C stuff we are already playing since the nineties.
    And "terrorists" should be not be wrongly depicted as a regular army that is capable of and planning to do any kind of invasion (assuming that the game does that, because that is the American view on the matter according to the news and US governmental communications (like presidential appearances on tv and the like)) because they won't and will never do that. Folks like that exist already for such a long time, that it would already have happened if it could. They are a force to be taken into account, yes, but they are of a different kind of force. Their strength lies in a "let them come" approach to the matter. But I am drifting away to a GN-like topic now.

    And still i am doubtful that EA will do a good job on it. I do hope that when they release the game they DO NOT include Origin with it. The god damn program is a nightmare.

    Believe me, they will. Especially with a game for the masses. --> Control.

    My general rule of thumb is the more "accessible" something is, the crappier it is. Whenever Blizzard talks about making WoW more "accessible" the end result is the game being dumbed down and less enjoyable.

    This could be a decent game, as long as they don't dumb it down too much and try to make it cross platform.
    It seems that EA is hellbent on whoring out the Bioware brand name these days, too.

    If this game is a stinker, they could put a lot of gamers off Bioware.

    This game will not play much like C&C4. I also heard C&C4 kind of sucked compared to previous iterations of the series. Truth be told, C&C Games have been on a dive ever since EA took control of Westwood Studios. Tiberian Sun was the last C&C Game I really really enjoyed. RA2 was alright, but even that was a farcry from the glory that was C&C:RA and Tiberian Sun. But--getting derailed--all of the C&C games have a unique feel to them, and I assure you, this game won't play like a normal C&C game, but should play just like Generals, which was an oddball in the series as is.

    Teaser looks sexy

    Bump

    http://www.ubergizmo.com/2012/08/command-conquer-generals-2-will-not-ship-with-single-player-mode/

    So this game won't have singleplayer campaign at all. The article forgot to mention that this game is no longer called Command & Conquer: Generals 2. It's now just Command & Conquer.

    Anyway this is an eyeroller. Generals 2 is dead.

    I've just finished RA3 and Uprising for the first time. I don't think that game was bad :confused:
    AI could get glitchy just like in Tiberium Wars (units could get stuck) but the rest was pretty good. Without Yuri it was little bit boring though.

    More news about Generals 2. Lol I bet I'm the only one who cares:

    Are there only two factions then? I used to rape and pillage as the "china" faction. But then with Zero Hour, I could steam roller pretty much everything with the Air force general.
