so I just look @ my Origins backlog and I have NOT had the pleasure (or the misfortune like many would claim) to try C&C4.  
 
I heard it was sh`t. And maybe it was horrible, as a C&C game.  But how's it for a stand-alone RTS?  any thought?
 
My favorite C&C was Red Alert 2 and possibly Tiberium Wars at a close 2nd.  Do you think I would at least enjoy C&C4 for being simply another RTS under the C&C trademark?


It depends on how much MOBA you like in your RTS. It's basically like a kind of proto-MOBA. Because for this iteration, EA decided to make a radical change to how the gameplay operates, most C&C veterans absolutely loathed this game. Personally, I got a few missions in and quit and I haven't gone back yet, even though I eventually want to see what happens in the Kane story.

The shift is that rather than engaging in conventional base-building, you employ one or a few "factory" units that produce all of your other units. Theoretically it allows for some unconventional tactics, but in practice, it's basically whoever can spam the most units against the AI wins. It really requires micromanagement to the umpteenth degree and it's not terribly fun. If I didn't already have high blood pressure, that game could give it to me.

Risen 3 still on a meh discount, though it did drop in retail price from $50 to $30. Game has been out for 9 months now so they've been pretty chintzy with the sales. Maybe they'll do a decent sale for summer but I have a feeling it will be 66% or even 50%. :roll:

 

The rest of that stuff has been on sale a kajillion times.

select r9 290 models graphics card on newegg is getting 2 free games gta V and dirt rally

 

I'd be all over a nice new card but I don't feel like paying the extra hit to upgrade my 600W PSU to support it.  The R9 290's anyway; I believe the Nvidia cards are less power hungry.

 

Well, that and I want GTA V on Steam and would never play the DiRT Rally game.

600W should be fine for a single 290X. SLI might be pushing it though according to the rest of your system.

Has anyone played the newest one (Tesla Effect) yet?  I loved Under a Killing Moon when I was younger.

I've only got the one slot anyway.  Also, what's up with you knowing the rest of my system?  =;

 

I played an hour of Tesla Effect and enjoyed it but I'd never played any others in the franchise to be able to compare it.  As a stand alone product, it was fun and a better retro product than faux 8-bitside scrolling shooters.

I do want Risen 3. The first one wasn't bad, it was pretty enjoyable until around the end game. Haven't played R2 yet. But god does Pirhanna Bytes need to fix their animations

I enjoyed Telsa Effect, but it has all the frustrating problems of 90s adventure games. The nostalgia and the goofiness made it worth playing through.

I'm pretty ingrigued in Rime Berta from the Playism sale, being one of the few SRPGs that remind me of Disgaea on Steam.  Only 50% off though and some of their other games have been bundled so I'm sure before long it will be too.  I do wonder why more games of this type aren't on steam though?

It has been bundled. It was in Humble.

Well damn, I must have missed that one unfortunately.  Will definitely wait for another bundle then.

I'm speaking more to the style of gameplay than the artistic style.

Yeah, I remember being very disappointed by CNC4. Especially after really enjoying CNC3: Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath.

 

The small unit cap, lack of base building, online only for single player EA login b.s., limited units depending on your class, no resources (tiberium, base power, credits, etc), and big push to play coop were all big turn-offs for me.

 

I'm the kind of CNC player who likes to build a massive base with walls and defenses and take my time gathering resources, researching technology, and building a large attack force to clear out the map. CNC4 pretty much took the tried and true CNC formula and threw it out the window.
