I have slowly been getting into RTS games. It started with Halo Wars on my Xbox and I have explored from there playing Age of Empires and C&C 3 and RA3. I was pretty excited to try out C&C 4 until I heard about what EA had done to the series which is essentially killing the franchise. EA requires a connection to their servers at all times to play the game. That includes single player campaign. That means that If I were on a road trip or somewhere where I had no connection to the internet I would be unable to play the game. To me that is far overstepping their boundaries as far as preventing privacy. The fact that a person would not be able to play content that they payed for is outrageous to me. Some of the stuff Apple does with their hardware irks me but what EA has done is absolutely ridiculous. Anyone else think companies are getting out of control?
