Scorch I played RA2 myself and I know that Einstein made it for himself (it as in time machine). I think your confused with RA2 Yuri's revenge where the soviets use the time machine which they captured to destroy Yuri.

CommanderSpartan, there was a time machine and a chronosphere in RA1, too. I think they messed up the timeling cus they built another chronosphere in RA2. Don't ask me why, I don't remember that much, but I KNOW this.

I'm not confused with YR cus' that's the one game I haven't played.

Well still, Einstein didn't make the time machine for Stalin.

I'll stop at this point cus I haven't played it in so long I'm probably wrong, but Einstein did build the second one. But there was another in the first game, so...

As said before, the game could be linked to the Tiberium series. If anyone finds it isn't, this thread will probably be moved somewhere else or just deleted and forgotten.

Eh sorry this is a late post. Actually, EA would only have to do one thing to make me buy the game: Include the Hell March songs!!! Those were the only songs I listened to when I used to play Red Alert 2, and I vaguely remember it on Red Alert 1. I think the RA1 one was better.

Then simply don't read this. It's what I do.

I'm sorry, but I'm sure it was Stalin who had Einstein build the time machine. The Chronosphere wasn't finished until like the 8th mission. Again, I'm sorry if I'm wrong, I haven't played the game in many years. I tried to reinstall it a while ago, but my comp is so new it wont accept the disk. Something like 'you will need windows 9.5 or lower to install this game...' comes up. Is there a way around this?



Okay, I don't f*cking care if someone's already explained it, I just need to get it off my chest...

In 1947, Dr. Albert Einstein developed his time machine in New Mexico for a personal project. He went back in time to Landsberg Prison, 1928, just after Adolf Hitler had been released from prison. Einstein walked up to him and said 'Herr Hitler' to get his attention. In response, Hitler turned to him and replied with 'Yes, what is it? I do not have time' or something like that, I can't remember... Einstein extends his hand and says, 'Yes, I understand.' Now here's where things get real muddy because there's some invocation of the Paradox Equation here and well, yeah... Einstein, upon making physical contact with Hitler, is sent back to his time, Hitler having been erased from the grand scheme of things.

Red Alert, the Great World War II, began because there was no one to keep the Soviets in check. Instead of preventing a war, Einstein only set the events in motion that would cause one.

Case in point why Westwood had this quote in the original game manual:

"War cannot be prevented but rather postponed to the advantages of others." -Nicolo Machiavelli.


Now can we please get back to what's important?

Here... Video link here...

And the Red Alert Franchise goes even more to hell....
This looks like an updated RA2 in the SAGE engine.
Yeah, no buy from me.

I thought RA2 was too far out there, even though it was fun, it was really messed up.

Just one thing before anyone makes any more of conclusions:

Japan would not be able to become a superpower without the course of World War II. US invested technology to Japan after WWII to maintain Japan's economy. Without WWII never happening, Japan would only be able to utilize sticks and stones against the Alliance and the Soviet Union.

If WWII never happened, Japan never would have surrendered and it's military never would have largely dismantled. What most people don't realize is that Japan would have most likely continued to fight even with the use of the atomic bombs. What Japan feared most was the Soviet Union, and it's massive military might that was built up during the war. The Japanese surrendered when faced with that threat, dubbed Operation August Storm.

The story released so far indicates that the Allies used the time machine to go back in time and defeat the Soviets before they invade Europe. If the Soviets never attacked Japan, and the Allies attacked the Soviets before finishing off Japan (which I think is what is going on here in RA3), then the Empire of the Rising Sun would have continued to build and conquer.

Thats just my theory.

True, this would make sense. What I don't understand, however, is that RA3 features Japan as the most technologically advanced faction in the game. Japan would certainly be powerful, but not any super-high-tech.

I was wondering if they were going to make that... Though in my honest opinion, the Apocalypse Tank looks worse in RA3 currently then it did in RA2... I loved the way it looked in RA2. And I'm hoping EA doesn't kill that universe as well.

Well War usually fuels a nations economy, WWII lifted the world out of the Great Depression, maybe there was an economic boom in Japan caused by Japanese domination of Southeast Asia and the Pacific and its resources, which laid the foundation for a technological boom in Japan.

Ocean gathering!? NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That just kiilled alot of my RA spirit T_T They should just stick to land resources, no water resources. The only water thing that deals with resources they should have is a oil platform tech building, like the land oil derreks form RA2... That should be the water resource source >_>

Well, most everything is linked to some form of ocean combat. The Soviets have a series of vehicles that must be built on water, and then can move onto land. But still, I don't think I'm too interested in the game anymore.

Stop talking out of your ass. They didn't say all resource gathering was in the ocean. Some resources can be found in the sea.


For crying out loud, read the full story before posting stuff. roll.gif
