  1. Command & Conquer Red Alert 3! I really like this game. Do I like it as much as the older entries? Probably not. I do love the coop campaign, though, and I like the distinctions between the three factions. Anyway, let's get on to the actual game. We start with the first Soviet mission, in which we defend the Leningrad Fortress - not that it needs much defending; it pretty has unlimited hit points anyway. Soviets Mission 1: The Shrike and the Thorn
  2. I'm doing an LP of the beta, but I don't have any specific point where a unit say that.
  3. Units say it occasionally.
  4. You can just create the folder if it's missing, and also use someone else's .ini file.
  5. All ZH mods I've played support widescreen. I don't know how a mod would interfere with enabling a widescreen resolution.
  6. Two things: all EA games perform "below expectations", always. Also mobile vs. battle royale is a false dichotomy - the most watched Twitch game is Fortnite for mobile.

    I can only make general suggestions. Try to reinstall the game, or use the .exe in compatibility mode.

    I can't read Korean, so I can only say so much about this. What version of C&C3 are you running? Original disc version? Steam version? Ultimate collection?
  9. I assume there is some sort of technical issue with KW, or some other mundane reason for the delay. I don't see why they wouldn't re-release it too.
  10. A kludgier but easy methods: raise the price to $99,999.
  11. Looks pretty interesting. I dig the oil painting effect. I'm not sure whether I preferred this over crisp pixels, but I'd like to see this in action on a large display.
  12. It's a bit smug and judgemental to go "No, you don't really like this game" isn't it? A better question to ask would be what games have a good reputation even among folks who never played them.
  13. It free-to-play and has high production values (for a mobile game) as well as little competition in the mobile RTS/RTT field, so I expect it to stick around for quite a while.
  14. "S.H.R.I.N.K." is the probably the most obvious backronym I've ever seen.
  15. Here we go: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dCErEIjK3adTjIug5DyFpMPgDFfcOaxh

    Nmenth's Research Lab: Nukes

    Nice one. I love that image of Tsing Shi Tao. That said, what;'s with the Desolator? It seems to fire some sort of radiation beam that instantly kills infantry. Is there anything even remotely like this, or is that complete fantasy tech?

    Nmenth's Research Lab: Mechs

    Even if we had stuff like that, the question remains whether the walker would be better-suited for its job than a conventional tank, and in most cases, the answer is a hollow "no".

    Version 1.0 of Rivals is the worst version ever

    Well, people who bought lootboxes matching with people who didn't is kind of the point, isn't it? If a player buys lootboxes and then gets matched with stronger players, they lose their incentive to buy more. If they get matched with weaker players, it makes them feel good, and they might buy more. it wouldn't be true lootboxes if it wasn't exploitive.

    Forged Battalion

    Only 15 missions, and all of them recycle multiplayer maps. It definitely feels like the game is incomplete.

    Finally I got to play this game that doesn't look like an RTS

    The whole game is geared towards this. You can gain fuel canisters to get loot boxes, but you can only earn so many, then you have to wait. All upgrades are tiny and incremental. This isn't just a game on a mobile platform, it's a capital 'M' mobile game.
  21. Late reply, but monetisation is not yet enabled. However, bogus currencies are already in place (gold and diamonds) and will no doubt be purchasable in one form or another when the games goes love globally.
  22. I don't think you can downgrade the Steam or Origin version, but I've never tried it myself. The easiest way is probably just to buy a physical copy of the game. A quick search shows that you can get the game for under £2, which is dirt cheap - cheaper than the Steam version. That said, you don't need to be that good at micro to beat the campaign on hard with the latest patch. Most missions are just a little harder, some are possibly easier due to the stat changes, and the IMO hardest mission (the final Nod mission) requires a good plan but only moderate amounts of micro.
  23. I know there are at least a dozen Chinese mobile games with RA2 assets, but I don't think any of the other ones claimed to be sanctioned by EA.
  24. Is this actually available somewhere or still in closed development?

    C&C Rivals

    Well, if you are on the Rivals Discord, you probably like the game, so I can't imagine too much negativity being there.
