hehehe, nice, i remember that rts like minigame from FF7 where you had to protect the hideout from atackers.

Maybe they should create a Live/PSN game based on that scene, a FF7 RTS game :P

I used to be the biggest Squaresoft fan back in the day. As soon as the Square Enix merger happened though, slowly but surely I have seen a change in their game titles. The quality of their games have SEVERELY suffered.

Not just graphically, but in every aspect. The quality of the music isnt bad, but the music itself is half-assed and uninspired. The stories are nowhere NEAR FF7, 8, and 9. The graphics are mediocre except for the million dollar CG cut-scenes. And the gameplay, although has always changed with every title, is sucking MORE and MORE with every title. FF12 wasn't a bad game, but compared to the other FFs, it was a HORRIBLE game. Mediocre and uninspired.

I have no hope left in me for Square-Enix. They're money hungry, and they've probably lost every artist that they had working for them. Maybe if they had some REAL artists working on their teams, maybe their games wouldn't be sucking so much ass right about now.

I have no hope for FF13. And Square-Enix is no longer my favorite RPG developer. I am no longer a Square fan. And I will most probably not even be buying FF13. Square-Enix is LAMe.

I cant wait for Supreme Commander 2!!! I love the first one and it's expansion Forged Alliance. Screw the story it's all strategy and Experimentals.

Blackops Mod FTW!!!

I just hope i dont have to drastically improve my hardware to play the game. If it's just ram then i can still go up to 8gigs.

Make sure it's exclusive to the 360
This way it's guaranteed to be another Square failure
Foxgod  +   2140d ago
actually, RTS games generally do better on the western market, and geus what the 360 is, indeed a western product.

Since it's Square,the failure of the game is inevitable

Really? Because Square was a pretty big part of the PS1 & 2 Dominance...But i am sure you are just too young to remember those days.

That's cool just as long as they keep on making more RPGs than anything ;)

This is a very interesting move by SE. Did not like SupCom though.

Considering Square have yet to release a AAA game this generation
It's inevitable that Supreme Commander 2 is doomed

Well this was unexpected.

@ Ateanboy
Be quiet you dumbass, stop copying that trash in every SE-related thread.

We get it, you're a retard. Go cry in a corner.

Let's hope they dont raise the processor requirements at all
Not being able to have more than two people on a 20x20 near the end of the game with reasonable framerates is annoying. My graphics card is sitting there while my dual core at 2.6Ghz is trying to keep up with the everyone's movements across the map.

Like Crysis, Supreme Commander was a little ahead of what current hardware could do at the time. SupCom had individual AI for each unit and every projectile had its own physics simulation. When playing over the Internet, all this data caused the game speed to slow down if the connections weren't fast enough.

Hopefully with SupCom 2, they aren't too ambitious with the technical side of things.

I'm sure you mean SquareSoft not SquareEnix as they have showed us they are on completely different levels. SquareSoft did some amazing things though SquareEnix has yet to show me anything memorable this gen or with FFXII.
