Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
earned our Editor's Choice award in May, and one of the features heavily commented on, net-wide, was it's neatly-packaged "BattleCast" feature (player-recordable commentary, squiggly-line drawing capable, the works). Unfortunately, everyone was too busy playing rather than commenting. Quite understandable. Well, EA is taking up the slack -- big time -- with their premier broadcast of Command & Conquer, BattleCast Prime Time
which features a sports-show format, play-by-play commentary from C&C developers, and even a visit from Joe Kucan, the man behind the Kane. Be at commandandconquer.com
this coming Tuesday for the show.
