  2. Anyone playing Renegade X?

    Thought I'd pop my head back in here and ask if any1 else is playing. You'll find me (ZTDelta) about on the less populated aka 16-20ish player servers as I avoid the usually full servers like Jelly.

  5. Epic Mafia

    www.epicmafia.com My bro showed me this site, and I've been playing this nonstop last few days. For a simple game, does it really well. Should really try this out =P
  6. What is your favorite GDI logo?

    the specialized C&C3 gdi faction logos are the best. first 3 are boring.
  7. Now Playing - Games

    i still have an active swtor account, play the occasional dcuo and bf3, but LoL is a great game to play with friends. sit down for a pickup game with friends and a single game is usually only 45min.
  8. I'm Back

  9. Now Playing - Games

    any League of Legends players here?
  10. I'm Back

    I stopped when i started college and was turned into a blizzard fanboy by WoW. I'm now a graduating senior, been WoW-free for over a year, and plan to have a lot of free time as i start my phd studies in the fall. Though I did buy sc2, will get d3, and may resuscribe WoW to try out pandas. I recently picked up C&C 4 for the first time and its kinda annoying to play.
  11. Consumerist Votes EA As Worst Company In The US

    poor bioware, ea is milking that studio's brand to cover their weaker games
  12. I'm Back

    hai guys. wow havent been here since high school. luk3us and fenris are still here O.o all this time wow. eager for a generals 2 to revive the C&C franchise.
  13. personally the only C&C game which i enjoy replaying over and over is Generals/ZH and RA2. I can't stand to play singleplayer more than twice on RA3 or C&C 3. Funny how WoW Battlechest and Burning Crusade are on that list, despite being several years old. Wrath of the Lich King will dominate November and December lists.... Its what I'm playing right now. RA3 had the bad timing of coming out around the same time as WotLK. I like C&C, but I'd pick the new WoW expansion over RA3 anyday. Its onwards to lvl 80 for me. Also I find people more receptive to playing WoW than C&C. I've gotten most of my friends into WoW recently, and them all getting WoW Battlechest helped contribute to its #6 slot. Getting people into C&C on the other hand was much more difficult, I'd have to lend them my discs and then they'd just beat it once and lose interest or torrent it. On the other hand, I just get people 10 day free trials of WoW, and that usually hooks them in enough to buy the whole game and pay monthly. Maybe EA should try demos and free trials, Blizzard doesn't need to market itself that much, it can rely on its current suscribers to pull in more. Hence any package of WoW comes with 2 10 day trial keys to give out to friends, and you can do it directly on their website too. Hell they even reward players who bring in their friends, for each suscriber you refer, you get a free month of gameplay, a zebra mount, double exp when leveling with ur friend and the ablity to summon him to your location anywhere. that was a huge incentive for wow players, and both my brother and I got the benefits by recruiting our friends, and so have most of the people i play with. Hence when people promote wow to their friends, they actually have something to gain for it cause nothing else will motivate humans more. Of course if they do that, they'll actually need to make missions longer, harder, have more substance. Beating a campaign in 1 day won't cut it. I remember when Generals was released as a Demo with the C&C Collection. (the original one with renegade and everything before that) It only had the first china and gla missions, but i enjoyed them so much I'd play the demo over and over, and was excited to get my hands on the full version. This may seem sacrilege, but Generals/ZH is still my favorite C&C game, despite it not being true C&C. EA is also an evil backstabber. I got the collector's edition C&C 3, for its exclusive content, the special maps and stuff. Then they release the maps public. I'm not wasting my money on any stupid collector's edition when there are no real added benefits. So I got normal RA3 edition instead or premier. Now the wow expansion collector's edition, they actually made it worth having, with a full artbook, ingame exlusives, a really cute flying dragon minipet. Plus you know if you don't open it, its actually worth money, its really a Collector's edition. The original wow collector's edition unopened sells for hundreds of dollars today.
  14. **** EA. I'M NOT BUYING FROM EA. They crossed the line with Spore. And they're doing the same thing to RA3. EA needs to stop treating its customers like criminals. I'm offended by what they're doing, therefore I will not be their customer. Someone who buys the game isn't going to pirate it. But EA thinks every1 who buys the game is also going to download it illegally online. **** DRM I've already passed 5 installs on C&C 3. If that was RA3, I'd need to call them everytime I want to install it now. So I can't install it on a bunch of PCs to have a Lan Game, and they all need to be able to connect online to activate. If I don't have ready internet at the moment, then I can't play the game. Spore is even worse. Only 3 installs WTF. I'm not ever buying EA as long as they have DRM protection. May EA burn and die. I wasn't a EA hater b4. I actually liked them. Now they are the top of my Hate List. May their sales of Spore and RA3 fail and fail.
  15. Westwood VS Blizzard at 1UP.com

    This is coming from someone who definitely never got past lvl 20. Huge landscapes with few doodads? Have you ever explored Outlands on a flying mount? Wow landscapes are pretty rich and very interactive. And you don't get voice acting an mmorpg. I dont give a damn about Diablo and I still dislike Starcraft. C&C is still my favorite RTS, but its left me feeling rather empty. Have you played C&C regularly, online, every night for several years? I have, and looking back upon it, its not that replayable. Kane's Wrath promised to be like ZH for vanilla gen, but it was very dissapointing. WoW on the other hand, has delivered what I expected and more, engaging its players deeply into Warcraft lore. I started WoW with absolutely no background knowledge, but the it has explored and piqued my curiosity. As of now, the epic endgame boss to kill is Illidan, requiring a 25-man raid. Illidan is one of the major epic characters in Warcraft lore, how's that for interaction. (Tiberium FPS should allow GDI players to kill Kane at the end ) But again WoW is a MMORPG, the industry standard, in a class on its own. It shouldn't be compared to C&C, its like comparing apples and oranges, but it sure a better alternative If we stick purely to the RTS genre, C&C is the winner. However, the 1UP comparison was Blizzard v.s. Westwood, not Warcraft/Starcraft v.s. C&C. Blizzard has managed to develop their story, expand from an RTS to a juggernaut MMORPG, much broader and successful in terms of financial success as well as marketshare/fans. From an industry perspective, Blizzard is the obvious winner, with more revenue, a broader and crazier fanbase (the koreans), and wider distribution/marketshare. Blizzard has managed to do well in traditional U.S./European Markets, but it has also made deep inroads into Asia, something C&C can't match up to. Conclusion: Westwood won the RTS battle, but Blizzard won the War overall. Thus 1UP's conclusion stands correct In the end, poor Westwood got eaten up by EA, which is going down the drain, while Blizzard is going strong, merging with Activision, another hugely successful company that manages to get its games just right (quality over quantity), allowing them to take on EA. Just check Xfire's main page. In the top 10 games played. 4 of them belong to Actilizzard, and the Top 3 are all Actilizzard: WoW at #1, COD 4 at #2 and COD 2 at #3. Problem with EA, is that it spends too much money on superficial stuff, marketing on big name series and expansions, hiring actors to hype up its games, and deliver rushed games that are lacking. Activision and Blizzard don't release nearly as many games as EA, but each game released is done well, very deep, thought-out and a fulfilling experience, that is very replayable. EA wants you excited over a game, play it for a month, get ****** about it, then get hyped over the next expansion/game and forget everything before, and then buy that game, rinse and repeat. Although they tried to avoid that in C&C 3, they still fell into the same trap. C&C 3 was on top 10 Xfire for the first 2 weeks, then dropped off right afterwards. P.S. Hey doctor destiny, what realm do you play on?
