Company of Heroes is one of my favorite games and I'm really looking forward to another one, perhaps one that doesn't take place in WWII. So I'm proud to announce the new expansion, that while isn't as exiting as a new game is at least better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick (suddenly I'm thinking of my dad and how old that comment made my sound)..

ahem* anyway..

CoH: Opposing Fronts introduces two new armies (the British 2nd and the Panzer Elite, which is a crappy game made by JoWooD games that almost made me puke), two new campaigns (Caen and Market Garden) and apparently some other stuff to look out for. The game is coming out this November along with just about every other game worth taking note of this year.. Just in time for my birthday. Why thank you THQ, Infinity Ward, etc..

Purchase confirmed, CoH was about the greatest RTS ever and I should really get around to beating it. It would be nice if they fixed the gross over balance with the tanks from the first game that would be awesome. (shermans destorying panthers, LOL)

yea.. whats up with that? and m9 bazooka damaging tanks, along with sticky bombs taking out tanks in 2 hits? the allies are way to overpowered.. axis should completely pawn the allies at infantry and armor combat. :banghead: oh well.. im going to get it anyway.

Yeah the allies riflemen were just unfairly overbalanced. It was pretty retarded that standard rifle men could not only go toe to toe with iron cross holders but win as well. I blame the sherman thing though on the developers having no idea how powerful this stuff actually was.
