The background story in Supreme Commander wasn't anything spectacular, but it's better than the average RTS game imo. I liked the fact that you could actually have several hundred units battling at any given time. It's definitely *nothing* like WC3. In fact, it's the polar opposite.

I remember playing C&C 3 immediately after SC, and losing interest because of how small and insignificant the battles seemed in comparison.


*Edit*
Here's a gameplay video that does a decent job of showing its sense of scale.

Yeah I've seen the scale, and that's what grabs me. But how much of it is mechanical building up of forces? Just seemed boring at the start….

The first few levels of each campaign are fairly slow, which gives the game a gentle learning curve. Later levels pick up a lot faster though, and you'll be attacked almost immediately in some of them.

Looks like fun but I think this is the kind of game that needs a large screen.

I'm definitely excited about gog getting Outcast, but I'm going to wait for some feedback on the gog forums before I buy it. Specifically, I want to know if they fixed all the problems it has with modern systems.

The only game that ever got close to the stargate (movie) feeling!

Wasn't there a patch available for higher resolution though?

It's worth more - because it's needed to play the Ultima 5 remake.

All the Guild Wars stuff is 50% off on Steam right now. Finally drunk the GW koolaid on the Game of the Year ed for $9.99. Me n tigress will be giving it a go this weekend.

ONce anything hit's 9.99, if I'm even remotely interested it's almost a slam dunk sell for them. I need to work on that
