C&C Tidbits

Not a lot major has happened recently, but here are some things you might be interested in:
  • CNCDen has a new C&C 3 map, based off the RA2 map "The Alamo" as well as a Worldbuilder script for map makers, four new Kane's Wrath wallpapers, and four other C&C 3 maps.
  • C&C 3 Game Champion Apollo offered some comments on the balancing of C&C 3:
    Looking at the overall factions and comparing prices I feel that Scrin is a currently balanced side along side of GDI where this is nothing that is too cheap, too expensive, too weak or too strong that makes that side unplayable or noticeable wrong in terms of balance. Both factions even play out as they were intended to do in design, one powerhouse faction (GDI) and one turtle faction (Scrin).

    On the other hand, looking at Nod I feel that there are flaws towards their late game and if they were cured the game would be on good balance levels without anything major which effects gameplay.
    More here.
  • Blitzkrieg 2, a Zero Hour mod, has released two new videos of explosive effects from the mod.
  • There's a relevant job posting at EA's site about a new position in multiplayer oversight. They are looking for a person to "Lead up the construction of a new and innovative online service that will help to shape the next generation of games in the RTS genre." It's unknown if this is just corporate rhetoric or if they actually have big plans. The former Multiplayer Development Director, Chris Corry, was promoted to Executive Producer for C&C 3: Kane's Wrath.
