E3 2006: Supreme Commander

PC: We get a look at the biggest sci-fi RTS on any planet

The time to end the demo had come, and Taylor had one last impressive moment in him. Zooming the camera all the way out, he revealed a third faction of the power struggle - the green-loving, alien-powered Aeon Illuminate. They'd been quietly toiling away in this world's version of Australia, but were about to announce their presence in a huge way - nukes. In fact, all three sides launched all the nukes they had within a few moments of one another, and we watched the barrage trace graceful arcs across the sky, then cover most of the planet in mushroom clouds. Big finish. The wait for Supreme Commander to hit store shelves in early 2007 is going to be a long one.

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
