    How can you not like NINJAS?!?!!?!?!!

    I'm actually going to get it because of the Empire of the Rising Sun. Also, Imperial Warriors are equipped with both a rifle and a katana IIRC. Think of it as a bayonet, only cooler ;)

    Well Red Alert 3 isn't really meant to be taken seriously, although I find it incredibly fun, in the campaign anyway

    I don't like fighting an enemy who has the exact same abilities as myself, I prefer fighting off some sort of Skirmish with a twist

    Seriously, they run faster while holding a sword and not a gun? I mean, what is this? Counterstrike?
    Why can't the Allies have the same thing? If their basic soldier is holding a combat knife, they run faster... add combat knives to Allied soldiers, and bayonets for Soviet.
    But then I got Command & Conquer Generals and didn't care about the stereotypes there... at least they picked on everyone there, but it just appears that in Red Alert 3 that they specifically picked on Japan for stereotyping.
    Besides that, every soldier should run faster with melee :)

    Wow. Only Stylesrj could take a consulate off topic.

    they picked on everyone with stereotypes largely, the USSR was not actually known for its armoured bears, not to mention that in pretty much every Soviet campaign the only person who's survived since RA1 is yourself and your Lt.

    I see Red Alert as Allies VS. Soviets. Sure, they had Yuri in it as well, but that was then Allies VS. Soviets VS. Soviets With Gatling Guns.
    So having Allies VS. Soviets VS. Japan... does not sound quite right in a conflict between two major powers. Maybe if it wasn't Japan and just the far east, then it could be a true world conflict between Allies, Soviets and the East.

    And the campaign just sounds messed up according to Captain2's comic where Japan is invading Stalingrad and the Soviets have to hold them back at Leningrad or something, or was that made up?
    What stereotype are the Allies? Free Market believers? Protectors of Freedom? Or no stereotype, just plain awesome tech?

    Sorry, I shouldn't be taking this off topic, but come on, it's Red Alert 3!
    Ah who am I kidding, I'll probably purchase it and actually enjoy the game.

    Holy crap, we better get this thread back on track. If you want to debate, take it to Other Games.

    With Captain2 joining in. I hope that he would like the Gmod rendition of him that I plan to use for him :). Apologies to Captain since I had to use Male_4 model (for the baldness) edited with City 8 skin (for the dark/grey outfit) and hand painted the Monocle.

    Yup, Paint is all you need. Or a drawing program. There's always room for more.

    No problem.
    And a list of main characters is nice, but we can also figure it out as the story goes along. Just mention them or something in comics

    Incase if anyone is still wondering, my laptop has decided to kick the bucket. After having my video card replaced, the problem (which can be found in the Computer Forum titled "wacked out video carc") resurfaced once again.

    I may be forced to buy a new laptop that can still run HL2 and Garry's Mod with no troubles for under US$1,500.
