    Remember when campaigns weren’t always in-depth? Man, those were the days. I’d settle for a really rewarding and entertaining campaign mode, but that’s just me.

    Also, I always buy the award-winning games. I mean, why buy a stupid silly loser game? Awards are where it’s at. Who ever heard of an award being fixed by an industry, right?!

    Also, technically all storylines are “unique”, since not many developers go for producing EXACT clones of eachothers games. That would be copyright infringement – So actually unique storylines are somewhat required by law.

    However, 99% of all gaming storylines are still transcribed from 1980′s movies, so we’re still shit out of luck.

    Mindnumbing promos aside though, Supreme Commander rocked, and unless Chris Taylor has had an emergency lobotomy since then, so will Supreme Commander 2.
