EA Announces Command and Conquer 3 Tournament TV

cc3-tournament-tv.JPG

Ladies and Gentlemen, or at least Command & Conquer 3 fans, EA presents C&C Tournament TV. And according to Kane, it’s on like Donkey Kong.

Cheesy catch phrases aside, William wrote a few weeks back about some cryptic messages from Electronic Arts about how C&C3 was going to be “revolutionized.” I haven’t seen anything yet, but if fan-video tournaments are what it’s all about, that’s hardly a revolution. That’s barely even an uprising, actually.

But regardless, fans will apparently be delighted over the show being hosted by the actor who plays Kane, with development announcements about the game as well as the tournament videos. According to 1up.com, there is no set schedule for the show.

Let’s hope that they don’t push it, and the good videos come out when they need to come out.

If you want a bit of feed-back and don’t mind the self-advertisements, check:

As you can see, the consensus seems to be “over-hyped, not revolutionary, but alright”.

Re-iterating what I said in those comments, the term revolutionary was used incorrectly and more importantly, annoyingly. It doesn’t bring the game around full-circle and yes, while it is a good idea, it should’ve been brought about in a way that used the correct wording.
