For those of you not aware, the people behind Age of Empires are creating a RTS game based in the Halo universe. Makes sense why Bungie and MS shut down the C&C mod, now.

Yeah, I figured that bungie's 2nd game in development was an RTS after Microsoft's lawyers attacked the group of modders who were making a C&C Generals adaption of the Halo Universe.

It sucks too because the C&C version looks great. They spent 2 years on it and it was almost finished before they were forced to shut down their website.

Ugh, only for 360. That sucks.

Starcraft 64 anyone?

Probably will be way better than that (I hope) but still a shame that we won't see it on the PC. Supreme Commander all the way.

Supposedly the LOTR: BFME II is pretty good on the 360. Don't know myself, but if it's in the same vein, it could be fun. Just has to be streamlined and more about presentation and squad tactics, IMO.

this game looks so far like its mostly in the "concept phase" of game development, though i didn't watch the trailer. the 360 only also sucks.

I've played LOTR:BFME on the 360, the controls are just fine but I'd rather play it on PC. The 360 has the camera to damn close to play RTS.

How can someone play an RTS on a console? You can have what, 3 control groups? Not to mention the lack of hotkeys.

Thats why I refer to Microsoft as "Macrowhore".

MS should have the keyboard and mouse for the 360 by then. The PS3 will be supporting it out of the box, so i wouldn't doubt that when this game comes out.... which will be a while, it'll have K/M support. I'm not much of a RTS fan, besides... RTS's are built for PC so I probably won't like it anyways.

They'll dumb it down so you can play it wish a controller, like they do for a lot of games that come out on PC and console at the same time. And therefore make both versions suck.

I'm really not interested in the 360 at all, until Halo 3 comes out.

I'm looking forward to Spinter Cell Double Agent. I think Gears of War will get old really quickly with only 4v4 with the gameplay that I saw.

Did you guys hear that Halo 3 is supposed to support 52-64 players in Multiplayer? Bungies also going to start showing more in a month when they start letting reviewers take a peek at the Multiplayer portion in November. I think Halo will start being dumb after you get past 24 players, past that and it's going to be a big cluster fuck.

It wouldn't be too horrible if it had big maps and had elimination in matches, instead of respawn. If it was just the same as it's been in halo 2, then yeah it'd be pretty gay.

Not necessarily. If it's only deathmatch (or if that's all people play), then yeah. But if the maps are of adequate size and the multiplayer is objective based (I'm totally a sucker for objective based shooters, God bless you WolfET), then it could be a hell of a lot of fun.
