I thought there was a revoke tool for RA3 activations. Look that up before you rebuy it SG.

Edit: Ah here ya go EA Game Authorization Management Tool

Thanks TB, I actually found my C&C3 TW disc's this afternoon. And I will give the revoke tool a go later this afternoon.

Saved me a couple of bucks today always a good thing.

For me it's not about the money, it's the principle of the matter. You bought the game, why re-buy the same game/same platform. Because EA chained you to limited installs and fails to just patch it out when it's not *cough* needed *cough* anymore? Don't give those buggers more than they deserve. ;-)

RA3 and C&C3 TW are the best IMO, uprising is okay short though IMO. For 5bux it is worth the money but I would get TW before uprising.

We should have a online party for CNC3 or RA3 sometimes.

Thanks but I never liked the original C&C storyline/gameplay. The red alert over the top cutscenes and units are what I'm after in the C&C series. I'll get RA3 and uprising

I quite enjoy CNC3 and the expansion however never liked RA3 at all, thought it wasn't that great.

Well I broke down and purchased RA3 Uprising, for $5 it was worth it to replace my non-legit copy.

I agree Jackie we should do a C&C night just let me know and I will be up for it.

My favorite C&C were probably RA2 Yuris revenge and Generals/Zero Hour

With a new C&C in the works I am hoping it will be Generals 2.
