Supreme Commander

I wish this bloody game would come out already. Hugely anticipated forever. Go to the link for new screens. I wanna control that huge laser spider mech.

It's been a while since I found an RTS interesting. The concept looks really cool...I just hope there is a lot of tactical/strategy depth. I'm doubtful, though.

This is being made by the Total Annihilation people. That game was legendary so expect good things.

Xander, its an RTS. Those trees are zoomed in. You generally play an rts game zoomed out on top view.

Keep up the pace Sharky. If you can play Total War you can play this. Believe in yourself!

Wouldnt have a clue. I doubt it. I dont really see RTS games with a pause feature. Otherwise it wouldnt be....Real-Time-Strategy.

At first I was like "Shurg. Another RTS? Does the PC actually play any other type of games?" And then I seen the trailer and now I'm a believer. Large maps, cool unit design, close up battles, ect. All look sweet. I just hope you can turn off shadows in this game. The shadows are making the graphics look worse then they really are.

I am bumping this and not bothering with a new thread cause I'm special like that. Link to a new video

http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096486138/

Miind you it doesnt show too much new from that last HUGE clip that came out a while back, but it has one of the devs in it talking about the features and everything and there is enough new material to see to make it worth it. Very cool. The game is going to be a monster to control. Cant wait!

Im sure there is another way they could show team colours with out making
the hole mech blue.
