  1. I'm just gonna plant this here. I saw it on Facebook. It got a laugh.
  2. I still wouldn't put it past EA to do that though. We get plenty of mobile ports to Steam these days as it is. If the execs up high think they can press for a slightly modified PC version of the same game for more profit and little turn around? They'll do it alright.
  3. Hmm. Well that was not expected. Could probably expect a PC/Console port at some point though. This won't just stick to mobile.
  4. Hi guys, I'm here to tell you about our new game Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare. Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare is set in a chaos world occupied by battling factions, bandits and warlords who seek to rule the world. The game is about your career as a faction leader: Start with minimum assets, you need to make money, build an army, wage wars against other factions and eliminate you rival forces with thoughtful strategies and fine marksmanship and eventually conquer the world. The game provides a completely different shooter experience which strikes a balance between intense first-person action and general strategy. The game's innovative combat system blends tactical first-person shooter with real-time strategy, allowing you to command an army, plan for tactics in the God view, while immersing in the intense firefight as a foot soldier, in the first person perspective. Here is an Early look at Combat for the game.

  5. Want an RTS game that's different? Fine... let's try this one. OK, here we have Ex-Epic games developers who have worked on the likes of Unreal, Gears of War, Civilization, Red Faction and MechAssault 2. http://store.steampowered.com/app/575970/Golem_Gates/ https://laserguidedgames.com/gg/ So then... How does this one float everyone boat?

    Tooth & Tail

    It's not a new idea. There's a Paradox IP known as Majesty where all you had control over is what you built. Whilst there was no commander avatar in this series of games, you operated the game more on a God like level where you had to bribe or bounty locations to get soldiers to attack: In the non AAA arena, this kind of gameplay also exists in a moderately popular game known as Rise To Ruins. It has a very similar concept to the Majesty series where you build as a god, and have to persuade citizens to do your bidding, but this operates more as a tower defence style game where you will eventually die.. it's just more or less how long you can hold out: Even the later games in the Tropico series has dabbled in this mechanic quite considerably. Tooth and Tail, basically takes this sub-genre mechanical concept and applies it into a more hands-on competitive approach that quite clearly works pretty damn well. I've been following this game since they announced it, and whilst I could have been one of those people who played the Alpha (I was given the chance) I chose to remain passive and wait for the full game. The point is this gameplay mechanic really isn't anything new per-se.. But what is new is the player's ability to not rely on an semi-passive AI assisting the player to get things done. In Tooth & Tail, if you want it done, you can get it done without the worry whether your commands are actually going to get done within a time-frame. The commands you can give are instantaneous, which allows for a much faster free-flowing game. This is why it'll be one of the best examples of indirect control possibly ever created to date!

    Rusted Warfare

    It's not too bad Single Player wise.. Missions - 8 (Campaign) Missions Skirmish - 37 Maps Challenge - 7 Challenges Endless Survival - 3 Maps Custom Maps Sandbox Mode Plus you've got Multiplayer on any of those 37 skirmish maps, plus any custom maps that are created. Full modding support exists as well. It may not be the prettiest game when it comes to the maps, but the RTS mechanics are some of the strongest, most highly polished that exists in the indie games scene. I'd even go as far to say they're better than a lot of the RTS attempts of the mid/late 90's and even most modern attempts from the last few years. Content wise it's got more than these games as well. You certainly cannot argue that for the price point.

    Rusted Warfare

    Need some more RTS in your life? Enjoy the likes of TA, Supreme Commander and a little known game called Command & Conquer? Well you might like Rusted Warfare. It's cheap as chips, and really rather good! STEAM LINK: http://store.steampowered.com/app/647960/Rusted_Warfare__RTS/
  9. It's actually nice to see some lifeblood still pumping around the community. Regardless how big or small, it's certainly appreciated Red2. There's not much left these days. But if EA get their heads out of their ass eventually, it'll be the community that's endured the storm that'll be the ones to lead the charge into the next generation.

    Letting Go of CNCNZ.com

    Best of luck good sir.... and on a light hearted note, welcome to the staff retirement club. Unfortunately there's no healthcare plan, pension or young nurses to look after us here, we still have to look after ourselves It always has been an honour working with you since the TSNNZ days. You've done the site, this community and its members proud.

    Donate to CNCNZ.com

    You should see the money that gets thrown around on Twitch then. One of the streamers I follow has a regular donor who's quite happily thrown nearly $9,500 at this guy. In fact his top 4 people have all forked out at least $5,000 each in donations to keep him ticking over. Firm handshakes to those who can do it. I just get my ass by on a monthly basis. I wouldn't mind being able to throw that kind of money about.
  12. If you need any help Zee, I'll jump on board again for certain things if necessary. I know Sonic's had to make the Ultimate decision to let go. But I, like you will happily contribute something to keep it alive.. Not so much on the Webmastering front, that's a time killer. But I'll happily contribute to a more strategy game site... Hell, you might be better going all Strategy. I'm mostly on the turn-based and 4X community side of things these days. That's my specialty. Not so keen on the RTS elements these days (Getting old)...

    CNCNZ.com Will Prevail

    I've noticed he's not trusting me as a previous Webmaster of the site... To be fair I don't blame him! I wouldn't even trust me!

    Wonder Woman

    Just gonna cut and paste this from what I typed in the chat box on the main page to make it a little more on record about this: As for my general opinion, I probably will not go and see it. When it comes to DC, I'm more interested in the Batman films as that's what I largely grew up with... I own them all bar Batman Vs Superman. Still on the fence about adding that one to my collection. That said I do have a large interest in the Justice League movie if they can get it right. As for Affleck's solo effort.. I'm still waiting to reserve judgement on him as the Batman. Since Argo and Gone Girl, he's matured considerably as an Actor.. But I don't think anyone will beat the masterpiece which was The Dark Knight.
