  1. GeneralJist, I think you have overestimated yourself. It's an odd thing that Intense (from ModDB/IndieDB) supported you guys and not EA, but however where's the motive and the direction that your mod is going? I haven't seen anything major yet coming from your mod and it's basically just ideas, talk and nonsense. Release something that you guys really did as part of the effort. If C&C was still pretty much alive and Aaron "Apoc" Kaufman was still community manager, he might have accepted your Tiberium Secrets mod as a honorable mention in APOC's mod corner. When it comes to a C&C reboot, a Tiberium Secrets mod with new and unique ideas/direction is not the answer people are looking for. Like what Plokite had said and I reiterate, a mod is just a mod, not a new game.
  2. It would be better for users not to show reputation points in posts except when looking at the user's profile. Also I would like to re-issue the reputation system with your staff, Sonic. It's time. I am not the only one here feeling pissed off.
  3. I was actually surprised some of you have positive reactions to the game when I already thought the reactions are mixed. I read the reviews at some sites, they are pretty much mixed but more players are disappointed than the ones who thought this game was good. Besides my small review is neither stupid nor pointless.... and I hate to point fingers at two users here (acting like Kermit) giving me downvoting reputation which isn't fair and that reminds me of some user back from the official C&C forums (which is Kermanit btw), where someone gave me one star out of five for every recent post I posted. Nmenth was right about one thing about me but however this forum isn't getting peaceful and happier than I thought it was years ago... and I am neither GeneralJist nor JeffNZ. And still Beowulf calls me a derp. Although this isn't a social forum, I have a feeling I am being abused in this forum recently. I am perhaps more happier in Revora and Reddit than here right now.
  4. So I have tried playing a bit of Mass Effect 2, and then later the first and third games in the Mass Effect trilogy and so far, definitely looks like Deus Ex meets Battlestar Galactica and C&C3. Now I wonder if any one of you has tried this game? How many EA games flunked using the Frostbite Engine 3 and above? Most of them, except Battlefield and Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare games. Fortunately no EA Sports games are using this Frostbite engine yet because they still work well with their own graphic engines. There are some games that worked great in their old graphics engine(s) but they did not feel the need to use the Frostbite engine due to its limitations.... and lack of modding support. Even as of now, EA still cares about quantity over quality. This year's fourth Mass Effect game called Andromeda is another overrated game with a critic average rating in the 70s and an average user rating of 4.5 out of 10 on all consoles from Metacritic. Most of the players complained of the animations, gameplay and the story... all simply way off the mark from par quality. Bioware did the right thing making the Mass Effect trilogy on Unreal Engine 3, but I am not so sure why they went with EA's current best engine all made from scratch. It took 200 developers and three Bioware studios to develop this game only resulting in some mediocre effort and some lack of originality including using a C&C3 track. Maybe Bioware should have delayed the game release just to polish more on the overall game itself, because that sounds like another rushed development of the game just to get in some sales.
  5. Oh, I must have enabled the adblock plugins. I have already disabled one of the plugins that got rid of social media icons.
  6. Speaking of mods in Cities Skylines:
  7. I couldn't stop hearing this somewhat doomsday song:
  8. Sonic, while I appreciated a modified new forums using the same but upgraded software, there are some things that need to be addressed: support embedding of YouPak videos. no more downvoting on reputation. Also I do not want this shown where mentioned users get +1 or /-1 reputation points: http://forums.cncnz.com/pastleaders/ spoiler tags not working in the chatbox. Facebook and Twitter icons other than Google+ needed to be added in this forum. YouTube embedded videos are too large when read in the thread. Should be in a smaller size.
  9. ....and it's a stunner. It's Norway! Congrats Norwegians. Article (via AP): https://www.yahoo.com/news/whos-happy-whos-not-norway-tops-list-us-063130417--politics.html All the info can be found here: http://worldhappiness.report Remember that four years ago I posted a thread regarding Iceland, New Zealand and Denmark are the most peaceful countries on Earth? http://forums.cncnz.com/topic/16974-worlds-most-peaceful-countries Happiness in the USA, it went down to 14th, and it may go down further, thanks to Trump and a divided America under a new dark democracy. The country with the least happiness is the Central African Republic.... and I thought it could have been Syria and Somalia.
  10. Well here's my short review of the 8-Bit game trio: The 8-Bit Armies/Hordes/Invaders trio of games are fun and basic to play, just like what a typical old-fashioned C&C game would be. Sure you can nod with C&C, Warcraft and Starcraft similar material. Lots of missions, but they all lack of a better story and some maps are re-used over and over again in missions. All of those maps are playable in skirmish and multiplayer modes. Hordes is less fun to play, but playing those factions are technically no match against factions of the Armies and the Invaders in skimirsh/multiplayer mode. 8-Bit Invaders included a new game feature similar to Global Conquest Mode from C&C3 Kane's Wrath called the Multiverse and that is also no fun at all. As for the end-game messages like "Victory! A Winner is You" and "Victory! Thank you, but our leader is from another planet!" are all pathetic ways to end a mission or skirmish/mp. Voice taunts were lacked at first release and were released later on. Mods are allowed for custom music and voice taunts. As for Frank Klepacki, give him good credit for making his awesome music to Armies, Hordes and Invaders. My final review:
  11. Anyone tried out Cities Skylines and their DLCs? I just started playing it and I thought this is the game that should have been developed in the 2000s. I always dreamed from as a child I wanted to build something especially for a city using toy materials (ie. Legos). I even had dreams in my sleep of standing in a virtual dream world where cities would change in various regions. I never knew a game would do such a thing, until I noticed some RTS games having some of these tall buildings and all other objects surrounded throughout the map(s). The first city simulation game I ever tried was CityVille which was a browser game on Facebook. It had the basic fundamentals, but it gets less fun as you are more dependent to require your friends to give you materials to continue making more buildings. Simcity Buildit on the other hand, was similar to CityVille but plays better than that game. However, the waiting time to finish producing materials and having trade items sold is a pain. The waiting time is even longer to collect more coins since the buildings (in the later game) you need to buy and build are pricey. I haven't given up playing Simcity Buildit yet since starting it two weeks ago. I didn't have any interest in the promo free version of SimCity 2000 since it's a DOS game with lots of basic fundamentals and no 3D graphics (because it's DOS). I also didn't have interest in the promo free versions of Tropico 3 and 4 since they are similar to Simcity Buildit but it's more complex and place setting is in Latin country. Then comes Cities: Skylines, and I thought it was an Indie game (but it is not) developed by a studio and publisher I never even heard of. Actually that game is the answer to the SimCity series where you can build almost anything (from freeways to zoning), even mods are supported and there's no need for a constant Internet connection unlike the rebooted SimCity. No need to make materials or trade items and wait to be completed. With mods, the possibilities are limitless, even for unlimited money and unlocking all materials. Better yet, the Unity 3D graphics. Cities Skylines along with its DLCs is probably the best city simulation game of all time. My final review:
  12. More ridiculous Trump clips from SNL: As of course, if you cannot view it in your country, use Youpak instead.
  13. I think that qualifies as a custom map mod for Warcraft III instead of a pointless game itself.
  14. I didn't know Pakistan countered YouTube with YouPak which can view any video without region restrictions and ads, and even better it can download any video or audio without using software or going to another site to do that sort of thing. Somehow the site can mirror any old and new videos uploaded to YouTube and the same goes to logging into your Google account to comment on videos. As to all the users here, Saturday Night Live has risen in ratings and viewers ever since Trump won the election. I mean without Alec Baldwin posing as Trump and Mellisa McCarty as Sean Spicer, things in SNL would retain its average low ratings. However Alec Baldwin isn't gonna last in SNL forever since he has mentioned he'll be done and gone in a matter of time.
  15. What did you discuss with them (the former and current EA guys)? I would like to know.
