I’ve pretty much played all the command and conquer series released to date except for the Firestorm expansion from Tiberium Suns. The original, Tiberium Sun, Tiberium War + Kanes Wrath, Generals + Zero Hour, Red Alerts 1 + Aftermath, 2 + Yuri’s Revenge and 3 + Uprising and even the FPS Renegade.
I picked up this game on my way home from school without bother reading the reviews on it, which was probably a bad mistake. But since it’s a Command and Conquer series, I’ll let it slide.
Command and Conquer 4 is suppose to be the last series in the Tiberium saga or at lease last series to feature Kane as the key character and I must say the game is not what I was expecting. It’s completely different from all the other command and conquer series, and not in a good way. I’m used to Command and Conquer series being collecting resources to build up your base and built up your army to wipe out the other army before they have a chance to wipe you out. Now, you no longer need to collect resources instead you are given a limited amount of “command points” where you can build your units from a all in one construction unit which can deploy and un-deploy whenever you want. The only resource remotely tied to Tiberium is collecting a tiberium crystal that spawns at a certain interval and you must use one of your units to deliver it to your deploy zone to receive upgrade points.
Command and Conquer 4 also has new features such as the achievement system, and a level system. You gain experience in battler, winning or losing grants experience. The higher the level the more units you get to use. Therefore you cannot start a game with access to every unit, which can mean if a low level player faces a high level player, they will have a tougher chance to winning.
The most annoying thing I can see in this game is the need to be connected on the internet at all times to play the game, Even if you only plan to play the single player portion of the game, it requires an active connection otherwise it wont let you play. Which means whenever I go to a wireless-free zone, I can’t play C&C4. I hear alot of people saying that is fine, because they are used to being online all the time to play their games from apps such as Steam. But Steam still allows offline play when an internet is not present. Command and Conquer completely eliminates that from the picture.
Overall, I think this is possibly one of the worse final ending to such an awesome storyline in history. I can’t say I am surprised as EA has a habit of taking all but the good things and turning it into crap for the users. It’s like they could careless how we think about their game since they know people would still buy their game. The game is a disappointment and I sort of wish that I’d have read the reviews before jumping the gun to buy the game.
Thats right. 20 hours of play time on Mass Effect 2, the game that just came out on Tuesday and I finished the main story line of Mass Effect 2 + a few side missions. Got my Character to level 27 and completed a few dozen achievements in the process
All I can say without spoiling much is this game rules
If you continue, there will be spoilers

Ever since the game was announced sometime last year, I’ve been waiting patiently waiting for the game to be released. The time has come to resume the role of John Sheppard in his fight to defeat the Reapers from destroying everything.
Pre-Ordered this game via Steam and have had it preloaded and waiting for it to be unlocked so I can kick some Geth ass! Reviews about this game sounds good so far with a superb rating as expected. I am looking forward to the improvements they’ve done to the system and to experience the multitude angle of the storyline as I will be playing all the possible playthrough in the game.
I am hoping the game unlocks at midnight which gives it about 5 hours and 24 minutes if not I will be playing it the first thing I do when I wake up.
I canceled my subscription the day I got back from my winter break. But since I’ve been charged an additional 3 months the subscription does not officially end till April.
Reason why I quit was cause it was getting boring. There wasn’t much to do at the time. But the new patch are adding new stuff to it and I’ve been logging on every so often to run quick raids with random people. My friend said I should transfer to his server to raid with him on a weekly basis.
I’m highly considering taking up World of Warcraft again when I have nothing to do and transferring servers to his server since I’m guaranteed a raid position. Now is it worth spending 77 dollars every 6 months. The I’d have to pay 25 dollars to transfer realm. lol
Content Patch is going to include new raids and new crap and more time to waste! W00t!.
I’ve only started playing world of warcraft in like september. and power leveled to 70 then to 80 when lich king came out. so I’ve never done classic and BC raid except to karazan. Lich King raids I’ve done all cept full naxx and eye. I’ve ran through all the northerend instances tho. both normal and heroic. :p
I’ve spec ret paladin cause i suck at the game. but i have decent gear, tho not the best. It does it’s job until I can get better gear.
That’s right. I started playing WoW. For those who might now know what it stands for, it means World of Warcraft. A MMORPG that came out in 2004. I currently have a Level 70 Ret Paladin Spec and thinking of changing it to either Prot or Holy. I’ve pre-ordered Litch King and will be leveling my character to 80 with my roommate. haha
Maybe create a Death Knight character afterwards, who knows. It’s a fairly decent game that deals with alot of social interaction (yes, i know you can do that in real life, but i bet you can’t cast magical spells with your hands in real life, or weld a huge ass sword, axe or mace without getting into some sort of legal trouble. :p)
I’ve been playing it quite often now since in residence there is usually nothing to do. So this game is more of a time killer. If i find something better to do then I wont play WoW (no, homework unfortunately is not something I would classify as something better to do. lol)
