C&C Red Alert 3

Recommended Posts

I thought the Red Alert franchise could not sink any lower than Yuri's Revenge. I was wrong.

Anime samurai robots indeed...

Only if EA could go back in time and revive westwood instead of failing so much...

I wonder if that still makes the beta key worth it. If a global protest against the anime robots could work (which wouldn't happen anyway)...

Apparently EA have backtracked, and dropped the C&C tag from it, saying C&C and RA are separate universes.

Imagine... Gundam robots firing rockets and laser beams at prism tanks. This game is in the mud.

Hopefully we will at least enjoy nice graphics :P

Seriously, the RA series have declined into silliness with RA2. It was nice, but silly enough. Personally I have nothing against it, although YR was quite a bit freaky. Perhaps they should have been more creative in a silly vein, rather than simply reiterating the time travel concept to introduce freakier sides, units and stuff.

Red Alert 2 graphics weren't awful, just very cartoonish. Gameplay didn't suffer a lot in Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge, but the whole atmosphere in RA3 is going to be gross.

I don't know, I could see some merit in the concept if we got to perform brutal acts of violence on a gigantic version of pikachu.

Uh... I wasn't sarcastic about the "nice graphics" (I said "at least", not "at last"). I think the RA2/YR graphics are fine. By "freaky" I also meant those odd concepts implemented in the game (like those "Incredible Hulk"-esque Brutes and other stuff), as opposed to more "serious" things in C&C (TD), RA and TS.

My point is just that I don't see any reason in being too serious about the whole reductio ad absurdum in RA3. It is in part justified by the tendencies observeable in the previous installments. And honestly, those games are all nice, but they are not such a big deal to get too serious about them. My two cents though.

Mwahaha >:-)

Also, you will be able to build bases in the water.  The fact they've brought back naval combat is what's selling it to me at the moment.

Don't get sucked in 'newt you know it will be bad! It looks rubbish as well, it just blends in with every other RTS game. C&C stood out dammit!

Oh and armoured bears...

There's armored bears?

That's not enough to make a game that has gone bad go good.

Pikachu will own you, they should make a Pokemon faction!!! :D

Alas, don't get too serious about Serious Sam either ;)

Look what picture I found when googling C&C-related images:

It's Disney's answer to Tesla troopers :D

I enjoyed Darkwing Duck when I was a kid ;D

Back on topic, I've just found some interesting news:

Red Alert News - Frank Klepacki Does RA3! -- Posted On 21 June 2008

Ladies and gentlemen of all ages, it is time to scream and squeal like prepubescent fangirls because the one, the only, Frank Klepacki is officially going to be scoring music for Red Alert 3.

Most notably of course is that he will be scoring Hell March 3. He isn't the only composer working on RA3's music, but at this point in time we have no further information on the other artists.

Hey guys,

Frank is not doing the entire RA3 soundtrack, he is doing Hell March 3 and "some other songs" which I cannot name right now. That said, when our embargo lifts late next week for the community summit, you will learn a whole lot more about our soundtrack and audio. We're extremely excited to have Frank on board in this capacity, and so is he.

At the very least, I hope ths pleases you guys, and our other composers on the game are generating some very exciting tunes as well.

This is a collaboration.

Thanks,

APOC

I hope "'some other songs'" means at least 4 others in addition to Hell March 3.

-Mighty BOB!

Taken from CnC Source.

Personally I'm a great fan of Frank's music, so I kinda look forward to what he's gonna make for RA3 :)

Same. Also it seems they've taken the series in a direction I just couldn't get along with. The whole Empire of the Rising Sun faction seemed like a bit too much of a cliche for me. (see kickarse psychic school girl)

It just seems a bit too easy to make a japanese side and put together all your favourite bits from manga. If they'd done more of a play on the imperial side that would have been interesting.
