I'm still hooked on 8 Bit series, playing on the lowest possible graphics settings until I can buy a cheap nasty ASUS video card.

Would you say C&C4 works better as a mobile game compared to it's bigger PC counterpart?

It has some issues due to technical limitations, but I'd say its better in some regards. Units are purchased, not just built (except for the AI, which just spawns them). Support powers work more like they do in the traditional C&C games. The missions are mostly shorter with smaller maps and actually have some variety. It's way better than Tiberium Wars Mobile, and with some refinement could have made for an interesting spin-off title.

So Duke Nukem 3D did have a 20th anniversary edition as a world tour edition, with five (instead of four) episodes. While Gearbox did the modification of the game, everything in the game is great (including real music, sounds and Duke's speeches) except for the lack of high resolution textures in an upgraded 3D engine. Sadly, you cannot buy it in GOG.com for now (but the guys there are trying to get every Duke Nukem game back into GOG for new licensing permits) but it's available in Steam with that s*** DRM. However that modified game isn't worth $19.99 USD.

Of course you can still get the eduke32 executable as well as the high resolution pack for Duke3D for free to combine with this world tour edition.

Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight Mobile. For the greater good.

So I can see the page at the store, but I can't download it. I'm a sucker for punishment...

It's a Java-based mobile game, so it can be played on an emulator. I recommend Kemulator, which is probably the best Java mobile game emulator.

The game itself can be found on various websites. Be aware that the game has different versions for different resolutions and phone OSs e.g. if you want to play it in 360x240 on a (emulated) Nokia, you need the game version with those settings. Most site will have multiple version because of this. Just run the game files through antivirus software after you download it (I like to run them through Virustotal.com).

So I played a little bit of Saint's Row 2 and 3.... and oh my, the gameplay is even more crazier than GTA games. It's Mafia Wars meets GTA.

While Saint's Row 2 has some framerate issues and terrible vehicle controlling (unless you use mods for it), it's still a great game nonetheless.

Saint's Row 3 is probably the best of all Saints games, better graphics and better vehicle controlling, but the game map and environment are similar to GTA III.

Why Saint's Row 2 & 3 are better than GTA:
1) Better customization
2) Better weapons and vehicles (and you can even upgrade them)
3) At the start, you can be a character of any type, male or female
4) You can own properties to gain money, just like Mafia Wars
5) A better complete freeway system in SR2 (no GTA seems to have one except GTA V)

I bought Half Life 2 and it runs just fine on my AMD A-10. I've got one of those awful $50 USD graphics cards - only because it supports 1440p resolution. Anyway, even that does the trick. Old games FTW.

Christ I had an A-10. Throttles any GPU that CPU did. Would hate to know how it would run Player Unknown's Battlegrounds if I still had it. Since that's all I seem to play since it was released.

Yes, people successfully remade and ported GTA III Liberty City, GTA San Andreas and even GTA V Lost Santos in GTA IV as mods. The problem with GTA V Los Santos in GTA IV is that it couldn't expand the entire map due to the engine's limitations so only the Los Santos area is completed but takes too much system resources, leading to crashes.

Because it's still in beta, the Los Santos streets and objects are similar to the one in GTA V Los Santos in GTA IV, meaning only Los Santos is finished. Liberty City is also finished. This mod is perfect for people with low-end PCs with weak graphic cards (like I used a GeForce GT 220 for that).

Unlike GTA V Los Santos in GTA IV, it appears both Liberty City and Los Santos are in the same map within GTA SA. The difference is using way less system resources and it loads quickly. However, there's one problem. The objects do not load as quickly as you drive through the map. When it comes to Los Santos, it needs hundreds of thousands of objects to load and to be visible at a time.... only if you are using low quality and resolution graphics and minimal view distance. The people who did this project must have used high resolution LOD on those objects and I was surprised when I saw the quality in GTA SA, almost compared to GTA IV!

Currently playing Westwood's Blade Runner adapted from the movie. The gameplay reminds me of Sierra's Police Quest 4.
