  1. The game isn't that bad, honestly.
  2. You should take a couple of things into consideration when buying RTS games for consoles, specially when these RTS games exists on PC. 1) Is the existing hardware ideal to play this kind of game. The XBox version of Tiberium Wars was pretty much playable, but, let's be honest... keyboard and mouse are still much better for this kind of game than an XBox controller. So, I prefer the PC version. Nintendo Switch's joycons might be better than XBO/PS4 controllers, since they can work like a Wii remote (without the need of a sensor bar), pretty much emulating a mouse. I don't know if it is as precise as a mouse, since I've never played Nintendo Switch in my life. The most missed stuff would be the keyboard's flexibility to handle groups of units. But that doesn't compromise the gameplay. While I agree that a mobile version of the game is an interesting idea and that Nintendo Switch is by far the best platform for it (much better than other Tablets and mobile phones of any kind), I have yet to see the game running to take any conclusions. 2) Console games are usually more expensive than PC games. Believe me, 8-Bit Armies on Switch will be much more expensive than what you pay for it on Steam. Also, Steam has several sale opportunities where you can buy the game with a good discount. Nintendo is a bit more limited with this kind of thing. But I wouldn't slam my head on the desk repeatedly either. It could be a good opportunity to increase the visibility of Petroglyph to other potential clients.
  3. Age Of Empires / Age Of Mythology

    Yea, that and it forces (meaning: does not allow you to remove) several stupid junk (Bing, Grove, XBOX useless stuff) from Microsoft that comes with your Windows 10, redownloading it without your authorization if you manage to remove it). For this reason, Windows Store is simply a big no here.
  4. Age Of Empires / Age Of Mythology

    Weird... Age 2 already has a HD edition, doesn't it? Anyway, Bad News 2 and 3 should actually be called Terrible News 2 and 3 respectively. I don't know if Relic Entertainment is really a bad news, to be honest. I've played a couple of Warhammer 40k games in the past and I haven't seen anything bad with it.. although C&C, Starcraft and Age of Empires games are much better indeed. I'm actually wondering which era Age Of Empires will actually cover. The trailer gives us no tips whatsoever.
  5. RIP Flash (1996-2020)

    About time...
  6. Coming Soon

    Comrade General will be pleased ;).
  7. Letting Go of CNCNZ.com

    It's not necessarily wrong. You simply can't please greeks and trojans.
  8. Donate to CNCNZ.com

    Yea, but getting that kind of value for a website that is limited to a specific niche like Command & Conquer games is much harder. Even in PPM, donations of $200 or higher only happens if there is a fan with a very good income who is passionate about the site. In PPM's case, only Lin Kuei Ominae, who happens to be a moderator, has donated more than that in a single donation, as far as I remember. I don't think that people who runs sites like CNCNZ and PPM can keep themselves only with donations and Google Adsense income. The best they can get is the site costs covered by fans. That's what I get for PPM. Occasionally, I need to throw some money to keep it running, but most of the server costs is paid by visitors who kindly donate to keep the site running.
  9. Age Of Empires / Age Of Mythology

    No Steam? Ahhh, too bad!
  10. Age Of Empires / Age Of Mythology

    If this game isn't restricted to Windows Store, I'm gonna buy it.
  11. CNCNZ.com Will Prevail

    I have nothing against using Discord or promoting a central Discord account for C&C sites. I've just never used it at all and right now I have a doctorate thesis to finish as soon as possible. So, I'd take some time to promote it at PPM.
  12. Site Updates - A CNCNZ to-do list

    To be honest with you, as someone with a long time forum administration experience, while transparency is a great thing in 99% of the cases, there are certain things I recommend to not announce in public. Simply do it, but do not announce it to not motivate anyone to use this kind of vocabulary ;).
  13. CNCNZ.com Will Prevail

    All hail CNCNZ!
  14. Hey Sonic, it saddens me a lot to see this post, although I do understand your position. C&C is indeed dead, if it depends on EA. I had a bit of hope for yesterday's EA play, which has vanished quite quickly once I saw all their announcements. But I hope you understand that this place is still entertains a lot of people and helps others to socialize and share their feelings and thoughts about Command & Conquer, RTS and FPS games and whatever related subjects. It is one of the best references in the world wide web about Command & Conquer. And that many people also have feelings for all the great work you've done with CNCNZ for all those 20 years. So, I truly hope you can consider the great offer from Zee Hypnotist to keep this community alive, even if he has to move it to another server ;). And maybe, if your real life gets better and future events in the C&C community motivates you to return, to take it over again once you feel yourself ready to do it.
  15. Temporarily Stepping Down

    This is very sad to hear, but real life will always be a priority for all of us :(. Regarding motivation, I think you can still count on projects like Renegade-X, OpenRA, etc. The community is still producing interesting stuff, although we can't count on EA anymore for any real C&C games (Tiberium Alliances doesn't count as one).
