Huge New Podcast, Article, and Trailer

Predator has just released a 50 minute podcast with a ton of new info. First, Art Director Matt Britton talks about creating and designing the Scrin units. The podcast then features Lead Balance Designer Greg Black speaking about balance. He's later joined by Jason Bender to discuss gameplay strategies as and against the Scrin. They also answer fan questions from the forums. All in all, there's a wealth of information in the download.

Gamespot has a new article about the Scrin that comes complete with a new trailer. Here's a piece from the article:
The real-time strategy genre as we know it today--gathering resources, building bases, and massing huge armies to sweep your opponent from the map--owes a lot to Command & Conquer. The original Command & Conquer was one of the first true real-time strategy games, as well as one of the best games ever made. So it's little wonder why strategy fans are looking forward to Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars, which is due out in March. Set in a war-torn future, Tiberium Wars will once again pit the forces of the noble Global Defense Initiative against the evil Brotherhood of Nod. However, developer EA Los Angeles is introducing a new alien faction to really shake things up. The existence of this faction was only recently revealed, but even then, details such as the faction's name and background were kept a secret. That is, until now. In this edition of our designer diaries, executive producer Mike Verdu gives us an introduction. So let's meet the aliens.
It also has a lot of new details. Read the full piece here.
