  • EA makes commander mode into new game

    Just saw this on my pulse feed:

    Command and Conquer Generals 2 is powered by the same engine driving BF3. Why don't we have commander mode?

    If you're playing the game, be in the correct TeamSpeak Channel.

      NFS The Run is powered by Frostbite. Why don't we have racecars?

      FIFA 12 shares animations technology with us. Why don't we have sliding tackles?

      Command & Conquer was around long, long, long before Battlefield. Why should they not utilize a powerful engine to make a new entry in that series? Battlefield and CnC are two different franchises with different goals. Just because two games share technology or an engine does not mean they can share features seamlessly.

            This.

            Now if DICE (The developer, not the publisher) were to release another, generally inferior FPS game to BF3 that included commander mode, then I'd be miffed. Complaining that a RTS game gets "commander mode" when BF3 doesn't is just silly in my opinion, as that is exactly what RTS games are supposed to be.

                  Whats to miss on commander mode?

                  It was by far the most annoying thing in BF2.

                    I'm sure there are a lot of old school TG'ers who miss Commander mode. Sure, it had it's problem, the spotting was haywire sometimes. You cannot deny the Intel was certainly useful, though.

                      Two schools of thought i see, those who like and prefer the entire team working cooperatively, and those who are fine working with a couple friends or solo.
                      Nothing wrong with either preference- the gripe is that there is no longer any choice in the matter. EA is "lowering the threshold" for accessibility reasons. Id bet most wont miss the feature, unfortunately everyone from here out wont get the chance to form their own opinion about it.

                      Games have always changed from version to version, patch to expansion. The nice thing is that there are always some new ones to check out and see what fits your liking.

                      A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effort. Why do you hate freedom?!?

                        BF3 summed up in one succinct developer comment: “how do you get the threshold lower?”

                          Sliding tackles in BF3 would be pretty cool!

                          "Enemy Spotted!" could be turned off.

                            PS. Looks like it suffers from the same congested small map problem as BF3 does. Where they made all the maps for consoles, then just extended out the terrain for the PC.
