  1. I made a duplicate thread here. We first got the message that he was interested in making an announcement back in late August. Very glad to see it finally happen! He is active in the comments on the C&C subreddit and has already confirmed no microtransactions!

    It's not too common for companies like EA to talk to fan sites first (subreddit and OpenRA, were there any others?) so I'd already call that a good sign.

    Edit: APOC apparently is still alive and well.

  2. Over at the C&C subreddit we've been in contact with EA_Jimtern for a while regarding an announcement he wanted to make. After a long wait the anticipated thread is here! Please read the post for yourselves but the highlight is:

    Following the reveal of Rivals, we heard you loud and clear: the Command & Conquer community also wants to see the franchise return to PC. And as a fan of C&C for over 20 years, I couldn’t agree more. With that in mind we’ve been exploring some exciting ideas regarding remastering the classic PC games, and already have the ball rolling on our first effort to celebrate the upcoming 25th Year Anniversary.

    Personally I'd love it.

    He refers to the 25th anniversary. Tib Dawn was released in '95 so we're looking at a 2020 release date which is a while but not that long.

    That's as of yet an unconfirmed rumor by some random anonymous 2 day old reddit account.

    It could be true but it could also easily be just some guy making shit up for laughs. Hopefully they're not making a phone game like the post suggests.

    So much for that.

    Since Greg Black isn't spoiling it, someone has spoiled the next C&C game called C&C Rivals: https://www.reddit.com/r/commandandconquer/comments/8khuw0/the_next_cc_game_is_a_mobile_cc_game_called_cc

    Both Tencent and EA are fucking up this franchise with mobile versions. Couldn't we have a mobile version of Tiberium Alliances instead?

  5. Has anyone been paying more attention to Greg's twitter feed? November 12th: Retweets about the Westwood's Dune.  December 5th: Tweets about C&C music on Amazon. January 2nd: Excited to get back to work. January 4th: Tweets about Act on Instinct. January 5th: Shares a RA3 vod by the Generals Gentlemen.

    Going to EA again sure is making the man nostalgic. He barely mentions C&C at all during all of 2016 but starting in mid 2017 he starts tweeting quite a bit about the series, making like 4 tweets in June-August alone which would roughly correspond with the period during which he would be interviewing and accepting the job at  EA. But is there more to it than mere nostalgia?


  6. Can't say I have been a big superman fan in the past but this movie was an abomination.

     

     

     

     

    So the first half of the movie is just boring, I didn't mind the bits on Krypton but that's about it. But once the break hits you think that surely the worst must be over. No, screams Zack Snyder, **** you, you're now going to sit through a half an hour of people delivering expositions to an otherwise pointless Lois Lane and then watch an agonizing 45 minutes of fight scenes. At the end when he was going for the final fight against Zod I was on the verge of walking out, I had already sat through 40 minutes of the same, damn thing.

     

     

     

     

    In conclusion this movie was an absolute trainwreck and no one should go seeing it without bringing a sleeping mask.


  7. What's the scope of the project? Are you just trying to get a newsblog, like your frontpage going or more of a fully fledged site replacing this one? Do you need to build a custom theme to mimic this site or would simple color imitations with the logos and banners suffice? I have some experience with wordpress (very recently I codesigned this site: http://vifill.is/ I swear the only reason it looks so bad is because the owners insisted on some heavy usage of green and that stupid banner) but by the sound of it this may very well be way out of my scope. So please tell exactly what you need and if I can help I'm up for it.


  8. In fact, we are working on a cool way to worship our past - Should be done soon. And the forums will contain all your old posts as well!

     

    going through your bulletins:

    1) Patches will come with the C&C Legacy portion of the website

    2) Unfortunately, there is not much out there that has been approved by our Security team - And I rather go with vB than JForum :P

    3) That will be a few weeks, as E3 is coming :)

     

    EA_Cire, being more revealing on CNCNZ than the actual forums the change is being applied to.
