  • Is it me or do some of the animations (see the scarab e.g.) still look a little rough?

    Whatever, overall looks pretty average. I'm interested until I get a demo, the controls will make or brake it. From the looks of it, it's not the RTS solution on consoles everyone is hoping/waiting for, as keyboard/mouse still seems far, far superior to "A", "X", "shoulder button".

    I guess a big problem is the way everyone expects a RTS to be, with the heavy focus on micromanagement, which isn't exactly the best idea with a gamepad. I'd assume if there will be a really successful RTS on consoles, it will be more in the vein of Supreme Commander, where macro is everything, and the AI takes control over 99% of your micro-needs.
