Having an emphasis on units is fine, as long as it doesn't turn out like CnC 4; basebuilding had better return.

After reading that interview, I am slightly concerned. They were asked specifically whether base building would return in this game, but their response only mentioned "core gameplay" and "action-packed gameplay". They missed a big opportunity to get the fans on side by saying "Yes, base building is making a return [in some form]." Either they simply neglected to specify what core gameplay is, or they're not bringing back base building and don't want to kill the hype yet. The lessons to be learnt from C&C4 are blindingly obvious, so I hope it's the former.

On the plus side, it's a PC exclusive which, from my personal experience, means it should end up a better game. I'll be interested to see where this goes in the coming months.

Not even getting my hopes up until they show the game in action, C&C4 was such a low point it's just sad.

C&C4 didn't include core game play.. Anything that includes core game play pretty much includes base building.

AYC3 I wouldn't put too much stock in the interview right now. While the interviewer asks some pretty good questions, most of the answers feel more like "non-answers," which says they're more interested in promoting the game right now than revealing anything solid that they can stick by. Game isn't due out until 2013, after all.
