    And dam it rocks. The Ion Cannon just looks so dam cool, the Juggernauts that were in Tiberian Sun Expansion are actually useful now, only thing I noticed in the demo I missed was it appears they took Walls out of base building.

    Gamespot and Fileplanet have the Demo for d/l, with FilePlanet beign faster, even with the line waiting.

    Downloading now on EA Link. It's rolling about 1 to 2 megabytes a second. :D 
    Can't wait to try this out. Only PC game I'm looking forward to this year besides Test Drive Unlimited.

    It will. Mine is kinda old and it runs smooth. I only played the prologue so far as I had to get to bed. I love the acting though, nice to see Kane back aswell as the commander from Starship Troopers. The asian girl looks manish though...

    It ran somewhat smoothly on this machine. But my laptop, which is twice as good... well... Running the demo makes the laptop do a hard-reset!

    Anyways, I can't WAIT for this game to come out.

    There is something on the C&C3 EA forums about what your talking about, think there is a fix for the crashing.

    Well if it runs on older PCs, I might as well give it a try then. I couldn't stop playing Tiberian Sun way back when.

    Ok, so.....I'm supposed to wait 12-14 hours for it to download? 24kb/s is extremely slow.

    If your getting from Gamespot, don't. I don't know how EA Link is on there speeds, but after the Line one FilePlanet, I got the game pretty quick.

    If you press N when you're choosing your side in skirmish you can play as Nod. The Nod Avatar is awsome! Unfortunatly you can't unlock the Scrin.

    I have a subscription to Fileplanet so I gave it a shot tonight. I'm hooked and can't wait to buy it on the 28th.

    Same here. I've been waiting a long time for C&C to get back to its roots. Don't get me wrong, Generals was cool, but it didn't have the same...feel. The best part is the Live action actors. Especially Kane!
