    I am completely devastated they have sodomized my favorite RTS with multiple consoles killing the pride and epic scale of my favorite RTS. They have denied me my fix for large scale tactical war where a mistake can mean lossing it all within a few moments. Mussels you should make a club for the poor neglected and destitute supreme commander players whom have seen there dreams sodomized today at the hands of consolitis that evil bastard has completely killed my dreams

    Supreme Commander Gold ($29.99) is available on Impulse, the storefront website for Stardock. This includes the original Sup Com, as well as the sequal Forged Alliance. I always try to check Impulse before Steam. Stardock is the company that came out with the Gamer's Bill of Rights, they have a great corperate outlook.

    You won't believe how F'in spectacular these games are.

    I looked on impulse first and could not find anything SupCom. Oh well.
    Good job. MT. I have used impulse more than Steam becuase I am a big fan of Stardock and their no-BS DRM ideas (if there is any at all).

    When they came out with GalCiv2, they put no DRM on it at all. I bought 2 copies just to support them. They have some great stuff on Impulse, and they have great deals all of the time. It is definitely worth signing up for their e-mail notices.

    SoaSE is a spectacular game too.
    Demigod .... well ... meh. Would probably be fun in multiplayer, but my internet sucks.
    I think I'll go buy the last expansion to SoaSE :)

    I'm reinstalling Forged Alliance after formating my game HDD (Win 7 RC expires,) coming down from Impulse at 1.22 MB/s. All of this Sup Com talk has wet my whistle.

    Forged alliance is great, i love it.

    I bought Supcom2 on steam the other day out of impulse, withoout trying the demo or reading up on it, i am kind of gutted that i didnt. I played the demo and the game is ok, no where near the original though. Crappy characters for the campaigns with embarrasing "acting". I can only hope they update it later on to make i have less console faggotry :(

    That bad huh.... :(

    This is sad... I literally cannot find a game worth buying anymore, and they wonder why :-/

    *oh well, runs to look at Battlefield Bad Company 2*

    And for the record yes, FA is PIMPED, minus the minimap... That was pretty lame and is annoying to me.

    minimap was somewhat lame, but it did let you split-screen or dual monitor for uber-map

    since you could always turn it off and just zoom out more often, its not that big a deal imo

    Just had a play through in supreme commander, i like it so far but i gotta get used to this economy thingy, I think I built way too fast or something and my energy is like all gone, actually its more like
    -12000 but my mass was fine, I got the basic hang of it so far, no issues yet, didnt get to have a massive battle cause of the energy consumption :laugh: but i'll get there. Graphics are pretty good too, especially the water detail, i like it for a 3 - 4yr old game. One thing I didnt like was the camera rotation, I mean it works and all but I have too hold down spacebar to look around but when I let it go, it goes back to top view, dont like that, must be a way to leave it how you want it.:D

    Yeah I know, but when a massive battle comes up, I wanna see it on a good angle without holding down the spacebar and I need all my fingers and hands to strategize:D

    thats the economy system we all know and love.

    putting it in context: you can build things you cant afford. if you spend twice as much as you're getting in, everything builds at half speed.
