    Well I got a deal when I bought C&C 3 Kane's Wrath to be in the RA3 Beta...my E-mail finally showed up today! WOOT! Downloading now...unfortunately I won't be playing it today...I have too much to do this weekend. Anyone else involved?

    :toast:

    EDIT: To be a little more clear, a card for RA3 beta came with Kane's Wrath, I submitted a code to EA and registered it so I could sign up for RA3 beta...my e-mail showed up today, I am now downloading Red Alert 3 Beta...I've seen some videos and previews, it looks really cool, I'm very excited.

    damn i want to play it

    its like what command and conquer 3 should have been

    ive allways been on the idea that it should only have been the original cnc universe and scoffed at the other cold war universe but this looks to be a good game eitherway

    ive been in the beta since first release, already a pretty solid game. Just finished playing actually. Japanese battleships are great!

    Add me to your chap buddy list if you see me: Apocolypse007

    edit: also, if anyone wants inside information on the beta (except extra keys) just ask !

    You do know you would have signed an NDA on the beta, and giving away information about it (in fact, in most cases even mentioning you are part of the beta until after release) is a breach of contract.

    i find it hard to believe they would give out tens of thousands of keys publicly to whomever bought the kane's wrath expansion and would expect noone to talk about their experience.

    besides, i can only answer questions about general gameplay, which is already publicly available on many websites.

    Regardless, If I had signed an NDA (Like the one I signed for work) I would not tell anyone about it...I may let muffin_man play though if I had a cool game. :p

    My best friend who is also my C&C Nemesis didn't get his key either, he bought it at the Meijer he works at the day of launch and all of my other friends got a spot and he didn't.
    I don't know what I'm going to do, he's my only friend who is equal to me in that game.

    :eek::eek:WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!?!:eek::eek:

    KW was amazing, I love the idea of the subfactions. Black Hand FTW! The only down side of the game is all the desyncs.

    the downside was the campign, the only saving grace it had was Kane. It switched to much, didn't present its self as interesting in the least, filled in very few holes from TW2 to TW3 and overall felt like it was thrown together with ducktape

    TBH I never touched the campaign of either game. I bought both TW and KW for the multiplayer. (Same reason I've bought every other RTS I own)

    The only strategy game I even TRIED to finish the campaign in was CNC: TS, I got to the last mission of the GDI campaign and then some stupid file got corrupted in XP and I had to reformat. I never did try to beat it again.
