Red Alert 3.5: Red Alertier

As sure as the spinning of the Earth, the ageing of a man and the fury of a Metal Gear Solid 4 fan at finding the game isn’t at the top of someone’s game of the year list, there are expansions for every Command and Conquer game. Red Alert 3 – a game that seemed a little lost in the tidal wave of big Winter releases – is next to get the add-on treatment, with a little number EA are calling Uprising.

It’s specifically focused on the single player/co-op modes, by the sound of it – featuring four new mini-campaigns, one of which they’re describing as something of a dungeon crawler mode. I.e. it’s possibly doing what Dawn of War II is doing. Trends are funny things. Oh, and they’re promising an even larger Hollywood cast, which means Kieron and Leigh will probably get to talk about mammaries again. Below the info-hurdle, a snippet of footage and ENTHUSIASTIC SHOUTING NERDY MAN going into more detail about what EA claim is one of the best C&C expansions they’ve ever made. Given the underwhelming C&C3: Kane’s Wrath, that’s a bold promise.

Command. Also, Conquer: Red Alert 3 Demo

Yesterday, the demo for the much-hyped via the medium of uniform-clad-hotties Red Alert 3 came out. Why didn’t we blog about it then? Because it was clearly far more important to tell you about two year old racing games and web puzzle games, obv. Priorities. The demo is – erk – nearly 2 gigs in size and includes the full 7 minute intro, three tutorials and a mission from both soviet and US campaigns. Get it from here. Or, go beneath the cut to see the final results of EA marketing’s nervous breakdown.

They Hate Apple Pie – Yet More Red Alert 3 Trailers

Winner of The Most Balloons In An RTS Award.

Red Alert 3‘s just a week away now, but that’s no reason for EA to stop pumping out ludicrous trailers. Three more now, and I don’t doubt there’ll be others. This time there’s one for each of the playable factions, intercutting game action with hammier acting than a pig-only production of Hamlet. (Yes, I went there).

Red Alert 3: Does It Contain A Game As Well?

I wish this were really a 1980s cop show.

After we posted EA’s last Red Alert 3 video, featuring a dance remix of the various actors in the FMV, we commented that things were getting a little peculiar. We then received a cryptic email from someone within MTV telling us, “You haven’t seen anything yet…”

While the latest official video doesn’t quite reach the heights of the previous one, it does contain some extremely strange moments. This time it’s all about the boys.

Red Alert 3: Dance Remix Party Fun Time

Get out of House's head!

Really, despite appearances, I couldn’t be less interested in Red Alert 3. That’s a game for the other three to get all excited about, while I’m playing something about crying. But they keep releasing increasingly ridiculous videos, and that gets my attention. The latest, below, it’s on a whole new level. It’s a sort of late 80s “dance remix” of various actors saying their hackneyed lines. Yeah, resist clicking “more” now, suckers.

Jenny McCarthy Has A Warrior Inside Her

Warrior Jenny McCarthy.

I like Jenny McCarthy. I think she’s pretty funny. I remember first seeing her on Singled Out and thinking she was great. My sister loves her pregnancy books. Look, full confession, I even kind of liked her sitcom, Jenny. It was awful, yes, but it seemed to know that. For seventeen episodes. But boy oh boy, does she suck in the clip from Red Alert 3 below.
