Default Supreme Commander 2 videos, and Demo on feb 24th





Guest-61: So the PC demo already has a date? If so, when?
ChrisT-Square: Okay, just checked, and it's looking like Feb 24th! and for the 360 it's March 4th. However, take those with a grain of salt, as anything can go wonky to delay those a few more days. Just saying!

Guest-35: Hi Chris, Will the demo be MP or SP? Thanks
ChrisT-Square: SP only in the demo... but here's what we did... we are including some maps that occur later in the campaign so you aren't playing the simple opening map, which is pretty short... we wanted to give players a taste of something way cooler. We're breaking the rules! lol.

yep, looking foward to it too. you don't get too many deep strategy games these days with resource harvesting, economy management etc.

they say SupCom1 was very complicated with regards to the economy, but I never found it very hard. It was just a matter of energy and matter - keep both meters in the green.

Not too much different from wood, food and stone in warcraft II.

I'm really turned off this trend of no resource farming, hardly any unit building etc in modern RTS. I like the economy management best.

I don't think I could play a demo of this game. I'd rather read a review and start from the start.

They better release this in a hurry because SCII sales will obliterate it.

Not a bad game. The characters are cheesy though and not good C&C style cheese

The only main gripe with gameplay I have is the wholesale nature of buying units and buildings, you used to be able to order any number of units or buildings to be built and as long as you kept resources coming in they'd get built eventually, but now you need the resources before you build, which can be a bit annoying when trying to queue a lot of build orders.

thats a huge let down, i can't believe they would change that. it was like that since total annihilation, it was part of gameplay.
