Command & Conquer, BattleCast Prime Time

Posted by: Randy at 8/11/2007 9:36 PM
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.
