I was interested in C&C 4 until someone told me that you are required to be connected to the internet to play, and saved games will be stored on EA's server's.

I have no interest in an online only C&C game, and will not buy in protest to this new copy protection.

I'm all about C&C Red Alert 3 or C&C 3, but the new one lacks resource management like the old ones (that I loved) and now you have to capture resource points or something like that for your $$ and tech upgrades.

Yeah, I'm sick of getting punished for the actions of others. Screw em.

How do you put a "requirement to be connected to the internet to play" and C&C4 being online only?

If you have a bloody internet connection, and you do, then you can play C&C4 MP or SP.

If my internet connection goes down, or I'm playing on my laptop when I have no internet connection I will not be able to play the game. Its ridiculous.

And its not like this is going to stop piracy, all it does is punish people who buy the game. (And I'm ok with DRM that requires an internet connection for the initial instillation, with a limiting # of instillation)

Doesn't bother me. When I use my laptop, it's always connected.

Anyhow, I hope this is Games For Windows Live!! Achievements would be great.
