    This looks actually good! Shame it doesn't seem to be available on GOG, but at least it's not Origin exclusive.

    Wow. THIS is how you do a remaster, you Bli$$ard mongoloids!

    Personally though I think I'll wait for a remastered-remaster with 8k support somewhere in 2030.

    Jokes aside - this is an obvious INCLINE.

    Still bummed there is no GOG release :(

    Most remasters have seemed something of a waste, but damn this looks nice.

    Good summary of why this feels different.

    Is there a reason to expect this?

    How good was RA2 / Yuri's Revenge multiplayer back in the day?

    RA2 was the last good C&C.

    I mean I liked Generals too, but it felt like a spin-off and lacked the C&C-esque corniness.

    "Requires 3rd-Party Account: EA Account (Supports Linking to Steam Account) "

    Does this mean I need to have that shitty Origin client opened too, or can I play it entirely through Steam only?

    The origin stuff should be only for multiplayer purposes.

    If this requires two clients, it's a no buy.

    Agreed! Couldn't they have put Dune2 in there as well. Would have been epic.

    Generals lacked corniness?

    Just compared to RA2, it's flat out hilarious compared to TD and RA1. The not!Muslims are an endless amount of dark jokes. Imagine that today, people would be storming the dev's offices and executing them in the streets.

    Generals mocked everyone though. It was like a War on Terror parody.

    EA laziness & corner cutting shone through largely due to lack of series staple campy mission briefings. It's not a true C & C without them.

    Wouldn't call camp a defining feature of the C&C experience, that's just a meme started with RA2 that EA continued with C&C3 and turned up to 11 with RA3 in particular. To me the FMVs from Tiberian Sun and earlier games weren't all that different in tone and execution from the more popular 90s TV science fiction shows. There's some hamming it up here and there, but honestly it was not more noticeable to me than in say Stargate SG-1 or even Babylon 5 that were roughly contemporary to those games.

    FMVs were being replaced by in-engine cutscenes in other games at the time of Generals' launch and cutting them could be justified from a production resources perspective I guess, ignoring the obvious series trademark feature status they had for the fans.

    Biggest EA retardo with Generals was not having Klepacki do the Generals music, doubtful they had a good reason behind it. In a game that in gameplay and continuity detached itself so much from the predecessors, they really should have used anything they could to at least put up appearances this is indeed another game in the series. The music seemed like a no-brainer choice that could help bridge it to the previous games, but then again EA did close Westwood around the time that the game was made, so it was obvious the suits were morons and their stupidity is to blame for that.

    D-pad controlled the mouse cursor essentially, and a button switched you to and from your sidebar. It wasn't all that bad given the limitations of the controller, I got through C&C, red alert + retaliation expansions on ps1. Obviously hugely inferior control scheme compared to PC though.
