  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.

    Cloud gaming PC service seems intimidating but pricey

    I also found out about this today: https://www.pcworld.com/article/3375205/data-caps-must-die-how-google-and-microsofts-cloud-gaming-ambitions-could-conquer-isp-greed.html
  5. 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

    If Google decided to go for this new tech, maybe Amazon/Twitch, Discord, DBolical and Microsoft will try to do this as well.

    For an exception to this promo free games list, Estranged: Act I and II (indie HL2 mods) are free to download on Steam whereas Act II is in early access.
  9. EA wants to like ESPN in a similar way: https://venturebeat.com/2019/03/15/ea-creates-high-end-competitive-gaming-broadcast-studio/ Ah, reminds me of old times looking at the set of C&C Battlecast Primetime, and this would have been perfect for BCPT 3.0.

    Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame

    The two trailers of Avengers: Endgame: Official poster for Avengers: Endgame is also here:
  14. As Luk3us once said on the Expendables 2 cast and movie, holy mother of God..... Well finally the answer to the Expendables cast is here, Marvel's version of the Expendables. The Avengers and Guardians will team up in this epic movie coming May 2018 and almost every great Marvel character is included except the Fantastic Four, X-Men and some other characters. And yes, there's a sequel to that too coming in 2019. Official first trailer: This is the comic-con poster for the movie: The budget to do this movie should be bigger than the fourth movie of Pirates of the Caribbean (around $410 million USD gross amount). The back-to-back production of this movie coming in May 2018 and its sequel coming in 2019 were rumored to be about $1 billion USD which is berserk (and it's not a final amount). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Production_of_Avengers:_Infinity_War_and_the_untitled_Avengers_sequel Will you watch it?

    AMD & Nvidia Desktop Graphics Cards Thread

    So a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has been released with a possible 1660, 1650 Ti and 1650 coming soon. The 1660 Ti with 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM that replaces the 1060 has a MSRP price tag that is $30 USD over the original MSRP of the previous 1060 with the same amount of VRAM. Pretty much those will serve as the mid-range cards of the Turing architecture while the high-end cards are all RTX (ray-tracing) variants of 2060, 2070 and 2080 and those aren't really worth it at this time. But I am still wondering why Nvidia didn't go with a 2050 Ti, 2050, 2040 and a 2030 instead. I guess they still retain the GTX series for budget buyers while the RTX series are for gaming enthusiasts.

    EA Believes C&C: Rivals Perfomed Below Expectations

    Already found out EA's latest game from Bioware, Anthem is already becomingly an epic fail in ratings (a 61% average in Metacritic from 31 critics and a miserable 3.3/10 average user score). Most people thought it's a soulless boring and buggy co-op game. Every recent EA game now isn't doing well except Apex Legends. I guess Apex Legends is now EA's last hope of success (not last resort).

    Forged Battalion

    So I finally finished the game... with a cheater trainer (for missions 5-15) due to weak economic gameplay in later games. 15 missions for one faction, unbelievable. The first four missions are moderate but then Mission 5 is way too insane --> three factions against one is totally unfair advantage. The last mission of the game is also similar to mission 5 as well. Also almost every mission starts with limited credits and at least several infantry to start with instead of starting vehicles and/or structures which absolutely sucks. I like the idea of custom made units but to unlock the entire tech, you may as well have to play dozens of MP/skirmish battles to max up research points and upgrade the entire tech. Also that main structure should have the option to turn back into a MCV and deploy it somewhere else to build another base rather than relying on capturing outposts just to expand a base. But my overall opinion of this, Warzone 2100 is still far better than Forged Battalion by a million leagues. Also a decent EP soundtrack (only nine of them) by Frank Klepacki.

    EA Believes C&C: Rivals Perfomed Below Expectations

    Yeah, right. No wonder why EA is still one of the worst companies in America.

    EA Believes C&C: Rivals Perfomed Below Expectations

    Lootboxes are one of those reasons why EA is slumping. C&C Rivals, Battlefield V and FIFA19 all sucked. https://www.fool.com/investing/2019/02/07/fifa-19-battlefield-v-games-drag-ea-earnings.aspx However, this statement is a toss-up. Fortnite itself is already better than most of the mobile competition (since it can be played on either PC or mobile) and EA is already responding to that with Apex Legends. Apex Legends might give EA some hope because it's also Battle Royale with lootboxes. Betting on mobile? It's betting on Battle Royale right now.
