Fun with fanatics...

So I was reading over at Lum's that Chris Taylor is coming out with a psuedo-sequal to Total Annihilation called Supreme Commander.

Okay, wicked. TA was a damn fine RTS game. Between the good use of polygons with the units and the "equation" that tried to keep everything balanced (which allowed for something like 28736428736423864 different units to be created), it is ceratinly one of the best RTS's out there.

Obviously Lum's a big fan. Nifty. He and I have talked about it in the past so i can dig that.

I thought I was a fan... Boy was I wrong.

I wandered over to the 2nd link that Lum posted and saw this:
It's already better than all other RTSs combined, including TA, all its expansion packs, every mod/TC made for it, and the TAFS, and TAU. And that's saying nothing Man, I'm saving those pictures!!

EDIT And anything else to come in the real-time strategy genre, unless Taylor decides to make Supreme Commander 2

So this guy's decided that based off of seeing a scan of the cover of PC Gamer, and the scans of the article itself... that this game that he's never played is simply the best thing ever.

This is why it's so much fun to poke the fanatics with a sharp pointy stick. They take being a fan to such an extreme level that it's past the point of being absurd.

I know people make fun of how much I like certain things... Like Star Wars... but at least I know that I never take it as far as some of these guys, and gals, do. Or better yet... if I ever do... please... hit me over the head with a blunt object...

...or something. =P
