    I don't really see the point, the graphics of 3 are still good today.

    It's more then just a remaster, though just because it looks decent today, doesn't mean it can't look better.

    But it does include more content as well.

    I was going to comment here that it's not a lot of additional content as far as i can tell, and hope it's not more then $19.99, and it, indeed, is $19.99...but i gotta be honest, pricing seems....odd....

    Hey, there might be a new building type, the sauna, and a new unit type the blonde babes that lose all their clothes whilst fighting.

    Note I am not a pervert.

    3 states it needs 12GB

    And i believe it had 3 DVDs, not CDs.

    I really would be surprised if it is 42GB, though....it does look like there's quite a bit of higher quality, probably 4K, new cinematic footage, which does take up a lot of space...
