  1. They were always be some apprehension as the dawn of a new age arises. as crazy as 20/20 has been, EA listening to the fans might be a slot on my bingo card that I'm willing to have checked off.


    took a while to get the download started because of heavy server traffic from steam, but I've been playing the game all afternoon and I absolutely love it. Been playing around with jukebox and visual features as well as the alternate controls and it is a lot of fun. They really did do a good job letting lemon sky and petroglyph take the burn of the work here and get it done the way the fans wanted it and the way the original team envisioned it.


    I for one, would vote yes on a remaster of Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 2.


    From there?... "Time will tell. Sooner or later ..."

    With the remaster now around the corner. I've been watching /Listening to this in the background several times already.


    It's strange. Even though I've played these games to death, it feels like a brand new release that I just know is gonna be good.


    Been letting everyone from back in the day know about it. My buddy's dad (who got me and him started on C&C on the Sega Saturn) is even pumped about it.

    This looks fantastic. I will have to give it a try. 

    I would imagine though, after all this work, this TC would fall under one of those projects that would need a full rewrite from scratch to get working on the remastered edition? 

    Shame if that's the case, because I could see it getting a massive amount of downloads from the Steam Workshop. 

    Digging the trailer's mention of the Remasters, but man, the possibilities of having the mod on the new Remasters would be wildly cool, if impractical (for the near future)

    That nuke is a thing of beauty.

    I remember when I was 12 in the summer of 1995 and had the opportunity to build the Temple of Nod. I would save the game when the nuke was ready, and then spend ages sandboxing the hell out of it. The enemy base, my base, testing it on every unit and structure to see what would survive and get wiped out right away. And the animation at the time was a thing of beauty back then too. I just enjoyed watching it cycle, so I'd reload and watch it again and again.

    Well looks like it's going to happen all over again now I'm 37! :dance:

    I remember playing it on my buddy's Sega Saturn. We were all about GDI and the Ion Cannon and the Mammoth tanks. I was over there for a long weekend once, and finally decided to start busting through the Nod missions. Consider me a changed man...
