Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Summary
The latest game series to crawl from under the shattered monolith that was GameSpy is Command & Conquer.
Fans of the venerable RTS franchise have banded together to provide a new server for several titles in the series, in order to replace those shut down when the multiplayer service.
The Humble Bundle Origin pack has been so successful, Electronic Arts has sweetened the deal even more by adding Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising (a standalone expansion) and Populous. Gamers who already purchased the pack above the average (currently $4.84) will get both games automatically.

Electronic Arts has announced that both their Origin and GameSpy servers will be taken down for maintenance, which will shut down multiplayer gaming for several games for roughly three-and-a-half hours.
The downtime will be later today from 10PM PDT / 1AM EDT / 6AM GMT to 1:30 AM PDT / 4:30 AM EDT / 9:30 AM GMT.
