That's bad (), but what do you mean with "should expect something very soon on their game"?

Hey, the industry is becoming very demanding.
Games these days demand insane amounts of work.

just create a crappy game with a known name and people will buy it, e.g. C&C Generals, Hot Persuit 2, Sims 8, ...

Well... I liked C&C Tiberian Sun Hmm... that's EA fault... Actually, there are only two big companies: EA and Eidos... and it's true, todays games are just crappy sequels...

Those bastards of EA killed Westwood (it's not called EA Pacific and some other company in Los Angelus)

As soon as people start to realise that it isn't all about the graphics (IE Unreal 2) then it wouldn't become that difficult to produce games (I bet that all the work on the Unreal Engine killed the rest of the game, look at Max Payne and Mafia, also both games with amazing graphics but finished after 12 hours)

Nah, the new stuff in Generals is nice and all, but I would be happy if it had the looks of Red Alert 2.

Actually, i only caught a glimpse of Generals at my friend's.
It seemed very good.

But RA2, wqas excellent, and so was yuri's revenge.
Certainly one of my most favourite games ever.

Yeh, mine too. RA2 and YR are always played at our LAN parties. It's so cool playing it multiplayer with a few friends.

they may, or may not be bankrupt, though i suggested it MAY be bankrupt... well, thats my analysation. Speaking of, on the contrary there only 5 people, and it maybe that their work may not cost that much on delphine. So i think if the next motoracer does well, then it may be back online...
