C&C renegade sucked...
2002-03-10 06:11:54 PM  
Ah, "VID-EE-O" games. How nerdish.
2002-03-10 06:13:28 PM  
ah.. am i the only one that finds this remotely cool?
2002-03-10 06:14:27 PM  
Oh wait, you mean sitting on waiting for articles then commenting on the message boards about nerdiness is acceptable?

2002-03-10 06:17:57 PM  
This is the Ghey if you ask me. I don't want to play a stupid Jingoistic Command and Conquer with America and terrorist rogue states. I want to play with tiberium, and NOD, and GDI and fake shiat. I do not much care for this idea.
2002-03-10 06:45:07 PM  
Navy SEALs rapelling down buildings? AWESOME! I don't care what you other farkers say, but any game with crazy commando actions like that deserves recognition!

The link says via slashdot? Um, isn't that Funny how things change overnight.
2002-03-10 06:48:47 PM  
I think all C&C games are fun, but most of them suck. Feh.
Generals should include the tiberium comet impact. That would rock. Battling with the "axis of evil"(soon to be nod) over the comet which produced Tiberium...

Why the hell does the image say "slashdot"?

_ANOTHER_ game with the same exact execution (do they use the same engine?) as Empires (the one that came out recently that's like that name, I forget the exact) and the new star wars game....... which were both based off of AOE.... having different execution, but stealing alot of ideas......

(i don't know)

Holyman: You didnt even read the article. The engine is 3d. I think fark should have a new rule: No one is allowed to comment on an article until they read it.
2002-03-10 07:20:29 PM  
Holyman887, Sorry, but C&C was out a hell of a lot before AoE was...
2002-03-10 07:47:23 PM  
And Warcraft was before Command and Conquer. But Dune was before Warcraft...
2002-03-10 08:52:19 PM  
But was the chicken before the egg?
2002-03-10 09:15:58 PM  
and dune was made by westwood. whats your point? doom was out before quake. wolfenstein was out before doom.

c&c is one of the best rts games of all times, and countless games have emulated it. I havn't played Renegades yet, but this looks kinda cool too..

*puts on flame-retardant suit*

Well, I'm not 100% sold on the idea of a 'slightly futuristic' RTS, but the C&C line has usually been a favorite of mine. As what I would describe an 'avid gamer', I'll play just about any genre of games. That, and I'll try any game at least once. Hrm. Come to think of it, that might make me a game slut. *ponder* Oh well, enough deep thought for the day.

Oh, and Renegade was cool, so there. ;-P

Hopefully the team that did Red Alert 2 will be working on C&C:Generals and not the Tiberium Sun ones. TS sucked hard, I'm using the game CDs as costers now. RA 2 was an excellent game and so was the expansion pack.. fast paced gaming, good units and a nice story line. Also Kari Wuher(sp?)...yummm..
2002-03-11 01:45:13 AM  
why is this so cool?
2002-03-11 03:26:29 PM  
This is cool because C&C is like one of the best RTS game series ever. It says via because this was originally linked to from there. That's how I found it. I figured it was worth posting on Fark as well.
2002-03-11 05:49:30 PM  
Yeah TS was w34k, except maybe the superweapons.
But RA2's videos were just gh3y, so cartoony.
Had they done RA2 first, TS would have owned. Basically they took out what was gay in TS for RA2.
Renegade, from what I've seen/played, looks shiatty.
The problem with C&C games is that no one knows what the hell the real deal is ever. Does RA even tie in? Some people think so, but it'd be so fuct to try and explain how...
2002-03-11 05:52:56 PM  
P.S. just reading the first page, they're video TOTALLY ripped off the idea from some Duke Nukem: Forever trailer my friend has; stating the year, with some video of what game came out then. double w34k.
2002-03-11 07:19:40 PM  
All other RTS are so lame compared to the bets RTS ever...Starcraft/broodwar. 3 TOTALLY different races. Sure AOE has 10 million races, but each one is exactly the same minus a few "bonuses" and a special unit.
