  1. I never thought I would want to post this here, but for the first time ever, I decided to post a thread asking you guys to post any free giveaway on game(s) that are temporarily free to get and download without any paying cost (whether if it's from Steam, Origin or whatsoever). At least it's better than paying up front. Please do not post MP only games here. Last year, Metro 2033 was the last best free DirectX 11 game to download (via THQ's FB) until EA gave away a free promo code for Battlefield 3 which happened two months ago. I also missed last year's Origin free promo code that should have given me a free download of any game priced at $19.99 or under. As of now only seven games in Origin are permanently free to download. I do not know how many games in Steam are permanently free to download as of now. So far I missed three opportunities at getting C&C4 for free, really, unless someone in the C&C community still has an unused code specifically for that game and use it into Origin.
  2. The return of the Status Update? Hmmm..... :confused:

  3. CNCNZ Updates - September 2017

    The new theme surely looks familiar which makes it look like a blast from the past. As for the new CNCNZ logo, what font is it? I would like to see the return of the groovy Pepsi font because it's cool and classy.
  4. CNCNZ Updates - September 2017

    Well the forums are getting more boring without any news or any new interesting topics to discuss with. I am running out of discussion topics too, and the same goes to the Revora forums. I am glad C&C Legos has returned. Cartoon and Conquer and Tiberian Daylight comics had ended. Community Battlecast Primetime from NodSoldierGirl, Doomtanker and Sybert had gone inactive for over a couple of years. Also one more thing to mention, and the one feature Sonic has done before ever since the beginning, if only Zee can bring it back..... CNCNZ Roundtable Discussion
  5. CNCNZ Updates - September 2017

    More monthly polls. More C&C Legos. The reputation system. It has been abused and trolled. Because I don't find it enjoying, it should retire. The return of the bbcode button in a edited/created post or thread (you know... viewing the entire source code to a typed post). It was seen in Revora forums (even with the IPB update) but not here.
  6. Blade Runner 2049

    Got some dire news on the original composer. According to news sources, it appears that Jóhann Jóhannsson failed to deliver the promise of composing the entire soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049, let alone Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch be credited for the whole thing. Originally Johann was going for an original fresh new soundtrack apart from Vangelis (without any remakes), but unfortunately it didn't turn out as expected. So what about that trailer music that Johann did? No credit? I guess this left some people disappointed. Ever since Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch were hired to compose the soundtrack in July 2017, they got less than three months to work on that music magic. I hope the music will be as great as what Vangelis did back in 1982. Too bad I wished Frank Klepacki would have done this rare opportunity. Also the movie sequel duration will run for about 2 hrs. 42 min.
  7. Blade Runner 2049

    We'll never forget the original which inspired Ghost in the Shell, The Matrix and Deus Ex. We'll never forget the inspiring electronic music from Vangelis. We'll never forget Westwood's game adaptation from the movie with Frank Klepacki's amazing remade music. And now, the world premiere trailer is here: Here's the previous first trailer: Could this be better than the original, or even shall I say as most people are saying, this is better than the lackluster Ghost in the Shell? Who will watch this?
  8. TaxOwlbear Plays Red Alert Mobile

    I am just wondering if there's an unofficial Android version of the Red Alert Mobile, just like the C&C4 Tiberian Twilight mobile version. So far I am seeing "Red Alert" ripoff titles for the Android OS.
  9. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    Just found out before Star Wars will release the second trailer of Star Wars 8 soon, JJ Abrams will co-write and direct Star Wars 9. Can he really conclude the Star Wars movie series once and for all?
  10. It's early to open this new discussion topic, but hey, Disney/Lucasarts have officially named the subtitle for Star Wars 8. A decent title though, but I'll bet the last Jedi standing is Rey when Luke will fall to the Empire. I wish it was called The Empire Re-Strikes Back. First trailer is here: The official poster:
  11. Video of the day

    This could be the worst reboot of a TV series in quite some time due to mediocre animation criticism (not to mention the visuals are very different from the original): But the younger sister version of Ms. Frizzle sure almost looks like Kate McKinnon, and her voice is great too. Articles: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/comic-riffs/wp/2017/09/06/magic-school-bus-reboot-looks-very-different-from-the-original-who-stole-its-visual-soul/?tid=sm_tw&utm_term=.9f826b47ac08 https://www.cnet.com/news/new-magic-school-bus-trailer-earns-mixed-reviews/ Well South Park's animation is far worse than this one, but that show likes to retain its animated 2D originality with great scripting.
  12. As to the question, well, PC Gamer did this discussion: http://www.pcgamer.com/which-classic-pc-game-is-on-your-pile-of-shame For mine, Half-Life, Call of Duty 1 and 2, System Shock 2 and C&C Renegade. Early 3D graphics on excellent games made me dizzy.
  13. Updating / Moving CNCNZ.com

    The video limit per post should be five, not what Meldi did in those C&C walkthrough threads of those recent C&C games. That resulted in a major slowdown loading the videos in that page.
  14. Free giveaway on promotional game(s) -- post them here

    That's because EA's running out of titles, when there's really more EA games out there. EA should had put Blade Runner On The House since they still currently co-own the rights to that game and the new movie sequel is coming up weeks from now.
  15. Last month, both N. Korea and USA threatened each other to start a possible WWIII. Now with a week left until 9/11 (marking the 16th grim anniversary), Uncle Sam is struggling to get funding for Hurricane Harvey's victims, maintaining the government (and a new budget) to prevent shutdown, trying to develop Trump's wall, trying to get another replacement health-care act, trying to lower taxes from the wealthiest, and maintaining the so-called DACA (in which Trump wants to end). Now with N. Korea arming and testing a hydrogen bomb in an ICBM, the chances of WWIII is getting higher and ISIS is waiting to make their next move. The chances of doomsday and/or WWIII only depends on where the situation goes, and it's still slim. Fire and Fury, Trump? Uncle Sam is already divided. One attack and one war could make Uncle Sam go bankrupt. But the most awkward news of the year came to this which reminds me of the ending of Terminator 3: https://thenextweb.com/artificial-intelligence/2017/09/04/elon-musk-says-ai-most-likely-cause-of-world-war-iii/ But the question still remains.... and the world is watching.
  16. Pretty much now half of us here don't like the game or don't like the direction Petroglyph is going.
  17. You should have closed all programs and disconnect the Internet before installing. The firewall should also be disabled because then otherwise, everything goes slower. Also if system restore is disabled, C&C3 can be installed immediately without setting a checkpoint which saves quite a bit of time. Also the retail disc must run at maximum speed since a dual-layer DVD should read up to 12X speed.
  18. Video of the day

    I'll be cheering for Alec Baldwin to win an Emmy for impersonating the best version of Trump. This clip from last week was epic and SNL hasn't started a new season yet!
  19. So.... Petroglyph is doing what EA couldn't do to any typical game. Make the game go retail, then do a VR and now do a Nintendo Switch game. Well what about an Xbox One, a PS4 version and an Android verison of 8-bit Armies, hmmm? Yeah, it would be great if a 8-bit Armies/Hordes/Invaders were all-in-one in Nintendo Switch and/or some other console..... all just to milk more money. Desperate times, eh? Maybe Petroglyph should have done a VR and a console version for Grey Goo instead.
  20. Half-Life 3 is in development

    To reiterate that EP3 spoiler: https://www.polygon.com/2017/8/25/16202006/half-life-2-episode-3-plot-mark-laidlaw-valve That pretty much sums it up until HL3. Now I am thinking someone or some team out there will try to make a HL2 mod to be HL2 EP3, other than SPY-Maps' The Closure mod. SPY-Maps has said he's not going to redo the unofficial HL2 EP3 mod with the unofficial story from Mark Laidlaw. Also this came out a couple of days ago that came with partial content of what was HL2 EP3 and HL3: http://www.moddb.com/mods/hl2aftermath
  21. Half-Life 3 is in development

    It might have been confirmed through this picture of a real HL3 t-shirt: Source: http://kotaku.com/58...but-that-is-all This epic game is probably in development while Valve is developing Counterstrike Global Offensive. Valve is already a dozen miles behind on this HL development and all other FPS game series are way ahead of this. Although it's been over 11 years since Half-Life 2, Valve may release something worse than Steam when HL3 comes around. Updated 6/19/2013: Another rumor leak: http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/06/19/valve-jira-half-life-3-left-4-dead-3/ and http://www.valvetime.net/threads/updated-half-life-3-left-4-dead-3-source-2-much-more-found-on-valve-project-tracker.243580/ Updated 10/22/2012: It has been recently rumored (not confirmed and announced by Valve yet) by other sources that HL3 might be released somewhere in the 2013-2014 season, stating that the game will have a huge makeover with gameplay elements similar to the last two Elder Scrolls games. Finally, some roleplaying in FPS. My guess is most likely to be Half-Life 3 vs. COD Black Ops 3 in 2014. Source 1: http://www.slashgear.com/half-life-3-has-reportedly-become-an-open-world-game-20248794/ Source 2: http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/half-life-3-goes-open-world-in-2013/ Source 3: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Source-Engine-Half-Life-3-Open-World-RPG-NPC,17751.html Source 4: http://news.yahoo.com/half-life-3-rumored-open-world-game-set-230033057.html Source 5: http://whatculture.com/gaming/half-life-3-10-reasons-it-must-be-made-now.php
  22. Half-Life 3 is in development

    Looks like Dota 2 is getting negative reviews (and I'll bet Team Fortress 2 as well in the future) since the players thought that game killed the Half-Life series: http://www.pcgamer.com/dota-2-is-getting-negative-steam-reviews-because-theres-no-half-life-3 Also more spoilers from HL2 EP3 from a former Valve employee: https://www.theverge.com/2017/8/25/16205032/marc-laidlaw-half-life-2-episode-3-plot-outline-fanfic I seriously doubt Valve would change their minds. ALL I SAY IS THAT VALVE CANNOT MAKE ANOTHER HALF-LIFE GAME BECAUSE OF THOSE OVERRATED OTHER MATERIAL VALVE IS DOING WHICH NOW SOME PLAYERS DO NOT WANT TO PLAY. That includes Dota 2, TF2 and Steam itself.
  23. Updating / Moving CNCNZ.com

    If possible Zee, will you please explain what's going on with the shoutbox chat? Even with the words of "[USER HAS BEEN BANNED - MESSAGE REMOVED]" has existed on both AZ-Stalker and Lauren.
  24. Article: http://www.pcgamer.com/the-best-pc-games GTA V and Half-Life 2 are now out of the top 10 and still The Witcher 3 remains number one in that list. And for the first time in a long while, C&C Red Alert 2 made it to #43.
  25. Updating / Moving CNCNZ.com

    I noticed two things lately: 1) There shouldn't be a fourth blank page for the C&C Patch Centre: http://cncnz.com/features/command-conquer-patch-centre/4/ 2) Zee Hypnotist's real name isn't Rabbit (should be n/a or his real name mentioned in "White Hole" lego clip) : http://cncnz.com/site-info/staff-listing
