Red Alert 3 Expansion Announced 41

TheProphet92 writes "Electronic Arts has announced a single-player only add-on to their popular real-time strategy game, Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3. The expansion features new units and more campaign levels to play. Although not a part of the expansion, 25 new multiplayer maps will be released as part of a patch. 12 of them are 1v1 maps and the remaining 13 are 2v2. Amer Ajami, an EA exec, said, 'Uprising is a game that in many ways reflects the feedback we have gotten from the Command & Conquer community. We're giving gamers more of what they want — more of the fast, fluid and fun gameplay, more of the story we began to tell in Red Alert 3 and more cutscenes featuring top-notch Hollywood talent. At the same time, we're excited we're going to be able to bring new things to the mix, including new units and the Commander's Challenge, which is a great way for players to hone their skills and get deeper into the combat.'"

    RA3 sucked anyway, nobody cares.

    EA/Westwood, you're going to need to get your head out of your butt and recognize that there are more companies on the RTS scene than just you and Blizzard. This isn't 1995 anymore. The C&C series just doesn't stand up to what others are doing these days.

    Innovate, entertain, or get out of the way.

    Dear EA

    Please restore the ability to zoom out far enough to see more than 1-2 of your oversize novelty units and buildings at once on the one monitor. I will then consider purchasing your RTS games again.

    You may like to take a look at Supreme Commander or Red Alert 2 running at a decent resolution to see what I am talking about. You will note that not only can I see my own super cool units, I can also see enemy units at the same time and visually gauge what the hell is going on. This has the bonus of actually allowing me to enjoy playing the game.

    Actually it isn't just third party titles. Look up all the angry discussions all over the net over HL:GOTY edition. I paid $50 for that box only to be told I must be a thief because some cracker group put out a keygen. I offered to fax the receipt, even take a picture of the nice pretty box with today's paper behind it. I was treated VERY rudely, got hung up on a couple of times, and pretty much the only thing I got told was i must be passing my key all over the Internet, even though I pointed out that made absolutely NO sense. So basically I paid $50 for the privilege of being called a thief. I will never give Valve a red cent again ever. If they had the orange box for $5 at Walmart I wouldn't take it. It just isn't worth it.
