  1. Who says the gaming PC days are numbered? No matter what PC you have, if you have unlimited Internet service with unlimited data (and no data caps), you may be fine with this feature. But there are some areas that have limited speeds and data caps and that this is NOT for them. Millionaires and billionaires can afford this, but not regular gamers. I like the technology but even buying that piece of hardware and using a virtual PC service at $35 USD a month + extra fees, this does not substitute buying/creating a new PC with latest hardware, plus you have to be restricted in an area to use it nearby that server area. Also can they let you play any type of PC game from the 80s to today? I doubt it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDaOjDHesBc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BQ4bXNdEQI
  2. Only five tracks? That's another new low for C&C. I did hear some new music when I was playing Rivals back then, never knew who actually did it. For those interested in the YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLa2l-ZDAlv5HULpcsDumI-E4KSdAVoV5d
  3. Well after all this time, Plokite has yet to put WrathEd in the Kane's Wrath downloads section of CNCNZ. Well here's the updated one, but it isn't a stable release and it's unofficial. https://forums.cncnz.com/topic/19116-unofficial-wrathed-108-gamma-released/ OR https://www.gamereplays.org/community/Unofficial_WrathEd_108_gamma_released-t956608.html

    Command & Conquer: Rivals Is Out

    You need to contact EA for that issue. But other than that, I think you need a newer smartphone since EA is bitching anyone to use a compatible device to play it right. Must be the higher system requirements.
  5. Ever since EA dumped Origin's On The House program for Origin's Access, less and less free games especially in Humble Bundle and GOG came out. While UT4 is halted for now but not yet canceled, Epic Games is now fully concentrated on not only Fortnite but also to open up the Epic Store to rival against Steam, and early plans to promote one free game every two weeks (or twice a month) in the whole year of 2019 seems rather epic?!

    Command & Conquer: Rivals Is Out

    Well I earned and redeemed $25 from a survey site via a Google Play e-gift card.... nothing sinister. The only microtransactions I spent (and it's only this game) are the special lootbox collection(s) that's on sale. Besides that's the only $25 I ever spent on C&C since buying Red Alert 2/Yuri's Revenge way back in 2002. It was until I won a huge freebie for the C&C Ultimate Collection in a giveaway raffle. And..... I never paid a single cent on Tiberium Alliances.

    Command & Conquer: Rivals Is Out

    Whoa. I thought they are releasing it worldwide on Dec. 8th. After $25 spent on microtransactions and twice EA changed the game by giving players lots of free loot boxes, I have little hope to progress with this game.

    Now Playing - Games

    Finally playing Deus Ex Mankind Divided with all DLC. The gameplay time is shorter than Human Revolution despite the lack of big weapons.... and the graphics are so-so despite the misleading system requirements. While it runs perfectly to play under the GeForce 1050 Ti card with 8 GB RAM in another PC, I still was able to play Mankind Divided on a low-end PC with 4 GB of RAM and a GeForce 1030 with 2 GB of Vram..... plus some lag and long loading times.
  9. It took about one year for the US to finally react and is giving way to investigate loot boxes as gambling material: http://www.kotaku.co.uk//2018/11/29/the-us-federal-trade-commission-says-it-will-investigate-loot-boxes
  10. So PC Gamer updated this list: https://www.pcgamer.com/the-worst-pc-game-launches But LMAO on Half-Life 2, that was a launching disaster at the beginning until more than a decade later the DRM was removed, even for its two expansions of Episodes 1 and 2. C&C4 Tiberian Twilight should have been in that list as it requires a persistent online connection and it's an incomplete game at launch, but now it is ignored by most users.

    Your System Specs - Post them here

    Wow. You must have earned a fortune to get that. While the 1070 and 1080 prices have dropped, it still probably cost a few hundred dollars more (over the 1070) to get a 1080 Ti OC.
  12. Well you don't have to post YouTube videos here since embedding a video is buggy here. Just post your YouTube channel link of C&C3/KW walkthrough videos instead.

  14. For the last time ever, I am giving away the last of the C&C Black Friday materials, which are the unreleased C&C tracks. Most of you probably may have heard of them. After that I am out of rare C&C material. 1) Remember the theme of C&C Battlecast Primetime from 2007-2010? Originally composed by Ed Cerrato, I did the re-recording of all loops from all BCPT episodes and edited them together to create this edited version of it. I gave that track away to the people of Community Battlecast Primetime that lasted from 2011 to until Sybert sort of retired. Oh the memories. Download: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Y66SiqyRRO0f6v93QGsbhW04xrjOx-Gp 2) When Tony Dickenson (under his former artist name Prince of Darkness) released a free download of 2008's Hell March to the Apocalypse, it had two versions uploaded in YouTube back then until the third and fourth versions pretty much replaced the first two with less orchestral instrumentation. The fourth version was done by the band of Tiberian Sons. Now looking for the original 2008 versions in YouTube mostly have dissappeared except the first version (and the orchestral version itself), and you cannot download the 2008 original from Tony's website anymore. The second version is my favorite where it was performed with two electric guitar riffs and the orchestra. Despite of that, I decided to re-release this gem track (the second version) but it had been re-edited and extended in a way just the way it should have been heard. Download: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zwRDITEovExD0AzIm5CfH83Mkdm5kxgk 3) Edgar Batnya (aka NewMessageN00b in Moddb) composed several versions of Devil March that was specifically for the C&C3 mod C&C Renovatio. He did release the first version publicly in Moddb/FileFront back then, but when GameFront took over the download to that song track was lost. He also used to have released several versions of that in his SoundClick artist page (GCThree) that had been since deleted. He then retired composing music in 2011. I had permissions from him back then to put some of his music into my C&C3 mods, and now on behalf of him, I decided to re-release the lost Devil March tracks where there are four versions of it. Download: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-C13r7EDQEXkRDThPb5o3S9HOTf5yB1D 4) As one last surprise, I always wanted to re-compose something out of C&C if I had the time. This was just a sample of it. Other than Frank Klepacki, Chicajo and the Renegade-X version of that track, no one else in the C&C community has re-attempted this. A retrowave version of this is something I have been dreaming for too long, unless I have a fast PC with 80s synthwave instruments other than having my sound/record editor(s). This sample was thought to be used in a C&C Tacitus Revolution trailer that I had planned for but I have no ability and the time to create trailer videos. Download: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MH87-E8SyMBu5mpeHd8V_s6qexyskJHc And that's pretty much it from me.

    Free giveaway on promotional game(s) -- post them here

    A game remake that was $35? Too decent for a Black Friday gaming deal. Still the best holiday deal ever was a free Left 4 Dead 2 game from Valve on Christmas Day 2013.
