Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

The reboot of EA's popular modern warfare RTS franchise will focus on e-sports skirmish play.

Fans of Command and Conquer, one of the oldest RTS game franchises, will be aware that there's a new game in the works: Command and Conquer: Generals 2. The initial announcement revealed it would be free-to-play, the first of many other Command and Conquer titles to come. Some further details have been revealed, among them that the game will not have a single player campaign, as the developer intends to focus on multiplayer online skirmish gaming.

Bioware general manager John Van Caneghem says that this is part of an overall strategy intended to "get back to the roots of what made Command & Conquer great." Building zillions of units and blasting foes is what Bioware believes this franchise is all about, and Bioware thinks a story campaign isn't integral to that experience. Multiplayer skirmish is what the developer intends to focus on, both co-op and competitive. This is all part of a plan to turn Command and Conquer into an e-sports series. "I don't think we're making a list of the features yet," says Von Cagenhem, "but I think you can basically make a list of the assumed ones that you'd need to be an e-sports game, and it's definitely part of the plan."

Command and Conquer: Generals 2 will be the first to get the treatment, but other games in the series will follow. "We decided to choose Generals as the first set of games we build under the universe, but we'll be expanding after that, like Tiberium and Red Alert as well as some others as well. But Generals 2 was the first one, and it was one of the biggest sellers, as well as the fanbase has been asking for it for some time.

Taken from Escapist, who took it from PCGamer.

... so, I think my interest just went down the drain. Yours? Still interested? Smile

Good to see you back Kijan.

I honestly never had interest in this. Since when did Bioware have any business developing a C&C game anyway?

Fun fact, it's not actually Bioware doing it. It's a development team they bought and then went "No one would ever buy anything from you. We're merging you with Bioware."

And really, I love C&C, Generals especially, but I saw this type of thing coming from the getgo. Not this exactly, mind you, but I knew it wasn't going to be C&C. I mean, EA is in charge of it.

To be honest, I am sick of the cheesy OVA's and all that which survived into Command and Conquer 4 and Red Alert 2. Its a nice novelty but it ultimately becomes the reason to play, and I always liked the online skirmishes anyway.

I don't know...it could be good in the end. Let's wait and see.

Meeeeelt! Everything must melt!

If one of you guys still have Zero Hour, I recommend the Shockwave mod. It creates more diversity between the existing generals while adding three more.

I'll certainly give it a try... I'm a bigger fan of the Tiberium/Red Alert C&C universes but as a long-time C&C fan I have no choice but to try out the new Generals game!
