    After a long wait, version 3.3.3 of the beloved Yuri's Revenge mod Mental Omega APYR has been released. Aside from technical improvements like Ares 1.0 integration and a new renderer option (DDrawCompat), this release brings new missions (including 3 of 4 Foehn origin story missions), the new Whipray ship for Foehn, the Quick Fort support power for Scorpion Cell, new maps, the long-awaited map editor FinalAlert 2: Mental Omega, ability to change hotkeys, a statistics screen, rebalances, bugfixes, and loads more. Seriously, just check the changelog, there's a lot of important changes. The patch is available for download on ModDB. If you haven't installed it yet, you will require the base 3.3.0 release, and don't forget to grab the soundtrack files as well.

    How about not relying on them in the first place? It's 2018, not 1998.

    Do you read anything that doesn't begin with "pc" (as in pcgamer etc)?

    I think there was a potential draft of the story for C&C 3 and Tiberium, where the Scrin were actually human: https://forum.cncsaga.com/gallery/image/3151-travail-sur-scrin/ Which was then altered to look like this: https://forum.cncsaga.com/gallery/image/3152-scrin/ This is official art from C&C 3. Both pieces come from the same artist. Worst of all is the former is what appears to be a final, colorized version, so this means it likely wasn't just a "what if" idea, they put a lot of thought and development into it, before it was scrapped and the aliens became "generic Hollywood aliens". Now, remember, the C&C 3 and Tiberium "story bible" did take inspiration from the scrapped TS Story Bible (like the Tacitus being recovered in 2028), as well as some elements seen here: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.chrissyx.com%2Fc%26ctib.php&edit-text= Kane was originally in contact with the Scrin, at one point, and he was the member of an ancient, highly advanced human civilization. Not too dissimilar from what Westwood had in mind, from what I can recall (well, the ancient civilization, that Westwood had in mind, was from Mars, at one point, but that was scrapped). We'll never know the answer...But it ties in everything pretty neatly, if Scrin are humans. 1. They've evolved to become a cult of addiction instead of a race (Kane's Wrath Intel Database). They were humans and we're all prone to addiction. Reason why we don't see "the addicts is because they're humans and most of the Scrin harvesting force are just bio-mechanical constructs made by advanced nanotech. This can also explain why it's so easy for them to mind-control Humans (who's to say an alien brain and biology are both compatible with Human brains?) and to turn them into "Scrin" (Traveler-59's Cultists (and they're called by a typical Nod name!)) 2. They know Kane cause he was their prophet, in the past. They were part of that same ancient civilization. 3. The "Brotherhood" that was the "enemy" of "The Scrin" (as mentioned in that GDI Intel Database entry) can only be Nod. There was also the word "Ascended" thrown in there. (Read, under "InOps" here, find the entry titled "Alien Origins, Connections to the Tacitus": http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Intelligence_Database) This explains how Kane knows of the Scrin and understands their technology and seems to know their origins. The Scrin were originally on Earth...Not as invaders, but rather, they were Humans, whom were later exiled (or simply left). This is why Kane can regenerate so well and so easily compared to us mortals, why he can give his DNA to others (C&C4...But let's ignore that one). This explains why they came back for Earth, specifically. Kane is also seemingly immune to Tiberium (C&C3) and this explains why some mutants exist, why some humans are seemingly not dead, but only mutated after Tiberium exposure (think of it like Marvel's Inhumans and Tiberium is Terrigen Crystals / Terrigen Mists) - Those mutants were part of the "ancient advanced human race" that roamed Earth millennia before (or a Human/Ancient hybrid). This isn't too dissimilar of the concept of the Nephalem in Diablo 3, the Precursors/Isu from Assassin's Creed (or a potential Human-ancient hybrid, like what the Assassins and Templars are) or the half-God/half-human hybrids of Greek mythology. Heck, even Halo has its lore settled on the concept of there having been an ancient space-faring Human race 100 000 years ago, just close enough to today for humans to have had the chance to fully evolve to Homo Sapiens, but distant enough so that any trace of that civilization can have completely vanished, without leaving a trace, so to explain as to how we don't have far advanced technology today, and to avoid contradicting how civilization truly started 10 000 years ago for us. So...Yeah, that would've been a cool twist. Think they're aliens? Nope! They're humans. Oh, also CABAL is part of them, because he was reborn from an ancient Scrin AI. So technically, the 3rd faction is not only the Scrin, but also CABAL and The Forgotten. It's all 3! That would've been mind-blowing. Imagine the devs telling us whenever we asked if it was The Scrin, CABAL or the Forgotten, and the devs would always say "Yes", but we'd be like "they're trolling us! Which one is it?!" and then it turns out they were telling us the truth.

    It's time for another Throwback Thursday! Today, we feature the iconic GDI unit from the first Command & Conquer from 1995, the original Mammoth Tank. This tracked monstrosity had dual cannons with which it punched 120mm holes through any armour, while it countered infantry and aircraft with its twin missile launchers. It was as expensive and slow as it was massive and powerful, and was the only iteration of this vehicle that required a Repair Facility instead of a Tech Center equivalent to be built. In every Command & Conquer game that was released afterwards, except for the Pogo-exclusive browser games, the Mammoth Tank or a redesigned equivalent made an appearance. Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don't forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you've missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments. We also encourage you to share this on social media using the hash tags #ThrowbackThursday, #CnCTBT and #CNCNZTBT.

    It is the first Monday of March, so it is time for another article from Nmenth's Research Lab. This month, we will explore the Hovercraft of Command & Conquer and see how they compare with reality. A new technology will be explored in Nmenth's Research Lab on the first Monday of every month. Return next month on the 2nd when I take a closer look at the Tesla Coil.

    Well IDK why did those developers managed to release this retail indie game with numerous flaws after several delays: https://www.pcgamer.com/why-people-are-furious-about-that-hunt-down-the-freeman-game-on-steam/ From so many negative reviews I am seeing, all I could say is this game is: Incomplete. A ripoff. Buggy. Has a terrible flawed plot. Not Opposing Force 2. Not Half-Life 3 material. I thought the defunct HL2 mod Opposing Force 2 had mentioned a plot that was supposed to be hunting down the real Freeman, other than the original Opposing Force's story? Hunt Down The Freeman is probably the worst HL spinoff game ever IMO.

    I'll even bet Starcraft Remastered will support 24 players soon. Time for OpenRA and OpenSAGE to get this sort of idea implemented in the future.
