Read it and ejaculate vigorously. This is all that can be said.

I read the artcile in PC gamer today and all I can say is bouncy bouncy. You can build a flying aircraft carrier how cool is that?

I think Chris Taylor (the designer of the game, and Total Annihilation, for those that don't know) is just the right kind of crazy. He just seems to have a big sense of fun.

I especially liked the comment "Who says Supreme Commanders and short range tactical nukes shouldn't mix?" :)

Well..they certainly set the bar high for themselves. I'm a little sceptic since there are numerous things that can go wrong..for a game this complex the interface has to be perfect. The balancing of the units is another great factor because whi wants to only play 3 or 4 units because the other 20 are just not worth it most of the time..

It remains to be seen but if they can pull it off we're up for a hell of a game. I'm a little bit excited right now. Let's see

I think they'll manage it.

I like the fact that they say you can set all your factories to automatic to produce more meat for the grinder continually. This suggests massive carnage. I love it.

There are a few things I notice though. Some of the shots have units, particularly the naval ones, engaging at absurdly short ranges. I hope it's easily moddable. I hope there are bigger air transports.

The scale of this game looks HUGE.

Definately one to look out for.

Also, I notice people talking about ejaculation in this thread, so we can talk about ejaculation yet if we say the word 'butt' we get banned for a day...okay then. Make sure you put in the FAQ!

It's possible it could be 3D with a fixed camera, like Total Annihilation. Also, some of those units are possible placeholders, or unfinished. The game's still a long way off.

Total Annihilation also looked a little bit different in the early videos.

TA has swallowed so many hours of my life...such a good game.

Hopefully you will be able to form up tanks and robots into battlegroups in order to move them on the strategy map.

Also I love that battleships will now be to scale.

Does anyone know what kind of computer requirements this game is going to have?

I imagine it will be pretty RAM intensive with those giant maps.

Did you see the screenshots of those nukes? I need to lie down!!!!

wow. the game look awsome. Very similar to Red Alert 2.

When is it due for release

Very similar to Red Alert 2.

BLASPHEMER!

Red Alert is not a patch on TA. As it's the same guy making it, and he's admitted that it's TA's 'spiritual successor' I'm hoping for something much greater than the C&C franchise.

Starkey

the C&C francise is practically no existant. Ever since EA brought it from Westwood it has slowly gone down hill. Generals was reasonable be nothing like RA2.

Will we ever see a new RA, possibly using the Generals game engine with huge amounts of troops

If not this will have to do

Red alert has nothing on TA, Supreme Commander (TA2 by any other name) will probaly set the bar for RTS games again.

I hope so TC27. Hell TA still looks and plays better then most RTS's today!

Hmm, looks very good. TA was the first computer game I bought, and it remains one of the best, even though I lost the cd several years ago.:p I just hope they balance it properly and make all the units viable.

The original TA. With 64MB+ maps... and me stuck with a crappy 16MB (later 24MB) ram machine when releaased.

Man, that played slow at the time :(, but it's great now on my 768MB monster :D
