Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Discussion
Yeah, which really saddens me.. Once we were cavemen with basic survival instict then we evolved into beings with intellect and intellegence.. it feels like we are devolving again..I don't object to hot girls in games and movies IF they fit the scene.. I object to using them to sell more copies..
Anyways, Ignore my endless rants.
This crap they call Red Alert 3 just pushed me over the edge.
I'm good now.

i say quit crying about it and just play the game and if you have any issues settle them with EA email them your complaints and maybe they will get heard untill then. its still all around going to be a great game and i am glad its back.
they just could have never made it.
and then where would we be?

First off, according to your post, I fit in he "caveman" category… I need to go to Sex Addict Anonymous apparently like David Duchovny. "Hi, my name is NemesisMk1, and I like hot women…" Sarcasm very intended in case you haven't picked up on it by now… but I'm just a dumb caveman… me no understand "surcatsm?!" Ooga-Booga!!!
Let's take a look at this in a statistical aspect... How many people do you think would line up on your side based on your view? That this game was offensive due to it's level of mildly suggestive sexual themes (See ESRB)
Perfect example is one thread in particular dedicated on this very message board, to just Tanya alone... This shows that there are people who do have an appreciation for said, "sexual content."
Now, I feel confident in saying that per every 1 offended player of RA3, there is at least 3 or more that say they enjoy the game more with the "hot all-star cast." That's at least a 3 to 1 ratio, sounds like good odds to me, that this game will produce more sales on this fact, let alone the legacy of Red Alert as a franchise.
Perfect example is myself...I can't help but stare at the Soviet chick the entire time the general in the other screen is talking... Does that take away from the game play for me? Nah, besides possibly getting so immersed in her attractiveness that I forget what the heck I was supposed to do in game, which… I will be reminded of again at the load out screen prior to the mission… it has little or no effect on me as a whole.
I also tend to play games drunk, which, from what I have seen… a lot of people do… for me, the eye candy only adds to the level of awesomeness, the more alcohol I get in me, the more appreciative I get of the "skinage."
The bottom line to all that I have revealed about my opinion is this… Even the "cavemen" like me knows that women don't dress like that on the battlefield… yes, we all know this *SHOCKER*… and we also know that it is completely unlikely that a woman would zip her shirt, blouse, etc down to reveal her breast like that in most "real life" settings. Now does that however mean it doesn't happen at all? Sure, it does… somewhere.
Also, what would have been more fair? All the dudes sit around in outfits from 300? With just a speedo, helm and a cape? Seriously…lets be realistic here...
On the final note, the outfits were all around cheesy, as were the cinema special effects… and the gameplay is mildly toonish… but it was all completely intentional as that has always been the style of RA and the Tiberian/Tiberium Series… and it makes it that much easier to dress up like these characters for Cosplay at your local convention… Matter of fact, I intend to show up as Kane for a Halloween party tonight, just to show some CnC love.
I sum up this long post, Colbert style… "different strokes, for different folks." ….and that… is tonight's "w0rd"
I guess I'm the only one that thinks the world is going a bit downhill? call me naive, I don't mind, I've been called much worse
Whichever, I'm not going to play it anymore. end of story, I'm sorry for being such a
feel free to lock/delete this post/topic.
