Have You Played… Supreme Commander 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Supreme Commander 2 is derided by fans of the series for the ways in which it differed from the original Supreme Commander, but I would never have got into the original massive-scale real-time strategy game if it wasn't for this smaller, more accessible…

Total Converts: SupCom 2 Revamp Expansion Mod

This is not the mod I intended to write about when the day began. I had great plans to write about "kitchen sink" mods, which abandon narrative coherency in favour of cramming borrowed ideas into a joyous, lunatic mess. Then I couldn't get my key example to work, and spent four hours stumbling over error after error until I was forced to give up. I'm…

GPG Still Improving SupCom 2, Apparently

Gas Powered Games are still working on improving Supreme Commander 2's AI, and there will be another overhaul with the next patch. You can see this explained in the video I've embedded below. The custom AI menu is particularly nerd-happy-making, with options to tweak exactly how it will behave/cheat. It almost makes me want to go back to the game. I don't know about you…

Reviewinated: The Other SC2

My keyboard + Supreme Commander 2 = 1200-odd words on Eurogamer. Going to be a divisive game, this - even behind RPS closed doors, Quinns and I have furiously disagreed about it. But then, he hates most things and I hate everything else, so such argument is inevitable. Here's a quote from the review, anyway. I know you like quotes. StarCraft is like some rare…

Supreme Commander 2 Demo Via Steam

You know me! I'm all SupCom 2 this, SupCom 2 that. It's short for "What's up comrades?" right? It's not? Oh. Oh no! Is it an RTS?! Oh for crying out loud. Yes yes, I know. So, you big loveable things, the demo is now available via the magic of Steam. It's single player campaigns, I'm reliably informed. There's also the announcement that Supreme Commander…

Roboticism: Supreme Commander 2 Vids

Robots, tanks, super-weapons, more robots, more tanks. An enormous explosion. You probably know the sort of thing, but it's still worth having a gander at Gas Powered's latest, Supreme Commander 2, in action. Can it actually innovate as Mr Taylor intends? Can it still keep our interest with ludicrous sci-fi death machines? Well, probably.

Meer vs Taylor on SupCom 2

Mr Meer is out in the snowy wastes today, trying to find his homeland. So it falls to me to point out this excellent interview with Chris Taylor, following the recent Supreme Commander 2 preview. Eurogamer Rock, Paper, Shotgun's Alec Meer, Hero Journalist: Do you feel like conventional RTS has given up and is moving on - so many people just can't do the multiplayer…

Supremier Than Ever: SupCom 2 Previewified

Not here, sorry. Over there. No, there - on Eurogamer. But it's okay, it's written by me, not some strange man you don't know who probably builds chairs out of human bones and listens to U2 records or something. You can trust me! Mostly. Especially when I say things like: The idea is that it's no longer just a game of indistinguishable tanks having at…

No Chicken Supreme: Supreme Commander 2

More news leaking out about Supreme Commander, which is due for a Spring 2010 release now. The new screenshot gallery really does make me say "Crikey" more than I normally do (Normal Crikey rates are about 1.5 per minute. Supreme Commander 2's screens rise it to a mighty 5.4). I mean, have a look at this bad boy. There's also a HD version of a…

Square Enix To Publish Supreme Commander 2

Seems like a bit of an odd hook-up, but it's apparently to do with top Japanese publisher Square Enix's "goal of increasing western development efforts aimed for the global markets". They're going to publish the sequel to Gas Powered Games' long-zoom RTS, Supreme Commander, on an unspecified date. Yeah, there aren't really any other details at present, but I'd anticipate there being enormous robots, and…
