Default Red Alert 3

Well i have been a fan of the C&C series ever since it began and always will be. With the new Red Alert 3 coming out with the new generation of graphics engines and all the jazz what do you the RTS gamers of tog think of the series and the up and coming RA3?

I could possibly pick this up though i must admit the series has not really sat well with me since the first Red Alert.

Some of my best hours game time logged in the original C&C and Red Alert though

I loved playing the earlier series, but I refuse to support SecureROM protected games. EA have "generously"increase the limit from 3 to 5 installs before the game is disabled. I will vote with my dollar and buy a different game!

Exactly my sentiment, I am not going to pay out full price for a game which limits the number of times I can install and uninstall a game.

Read below for more info.
Red Alert 3: EA Sticking With SecuROM (Though Red Alert 3's Will Go A Little Easier On You)

The key issue is the need to be connected to the internet to validate you have a genuine copy before you are permitted to play. The more draconian method used in previous EA titles where every 10 days the game had to be validated by the EA Check Server or else it was disabled.
