I never really took to the second game for some reason...it just didn't feel right to me. I've not tried the third though, mostly because at the time of release I didn't have a machine capable of running it. Worth trying, would you say?

I loved the units you could get in Tiberian Sun. Disruptors were just so cool. xD

Digital games pricing is so much fun, right? This is why I never buy digital unless I have no other choice, and never buy games on PC outside of sales.

I started with the second game, with steam workshop support things got even more fun, but the first might blow me away as soon as I play it xD
Definetly worth a try, im still learning how to play it personally.

GDI had the better units in Tiberian Sun, Disruptors, Titans, the glorious Mammoth MK II
what was it a terrible time to be Nod, at least we had more pleasing looking buildings xD

it's why i usually wait for sales, I dont have a CD drive in my PC anymore :(

Will keep an eye out in the Steam sales, then...end of next month! My Steam backlog is already horrific, though. xD;

Well, the Nod had those invisible bombers, and the underground troop carriers, IIRC? The Mammoth took such a looooong time to build, too.

I'm a little worried/annoyed that the majority of high end laptops don't have CD drives any more - mine does, but that I had to look for one with that specific feature was bothersome. I watch DVDs on this thing too and I don't want to pay for a separate USB DVD player...and I ain't going all digital no matter how hard the various industries try to push me in that direction >.>

mine is huuuuuge tbh, i have a lot of games I have not finished or not even started at all and the list grows on the daily xD

Yea, but their units were next to garbage on Hard difficulty and I just end up hijacking GDI buildings for Titans xD
Although the Banshees and artillery were quite something, ESPECIALLY the arty being homing

I fear the same, my current PC case has no option for a CD drive at all. Might scrap up my old case which still has a CD player in it but the size is so tiny I cant do much with it xD

Whilst I don't generally like digital-only products, I think Sony and Nintendo could learn a lot from Steam, and discounting games in general. Digital titles on the storefront literally never drop in price, and it's extremely aggravating. You see a game released 3 years ago or so going for full RRP on the store and it's just...what. Why. xD


Ahaha, I never played on hard difficulty, I generally play these kinds of games to relax =P

I've always thought of PCs - even gaming PCs - as multi-purpose devices, so not having a CD drive seems counter-productive to me...I mean, Blu Ray discs are still a thing even if people want to use the "antiquated media" argument for DVDs.

I fully agree with that. Main reason why I havent really bought that many new games and stuck with the good old classics 8)

It's actually my first attempt at a Hard playthrough, normallu I play the campaign on normal, do some wacky stuff, but I'd felt like a challenge besides playing online haha

they should be imo, but the future insists on the digital nonsense I fear.

Too much comes out, and there's so much to catch up on! Although with older titles, ironically I think digital is actually better - I mean, good luck finding an original copy of some games for a decent price...

I seeeee. I don't actually play on Hard very much these days, because I have so much to play...getting stuck at points is time I don't have. xD

Oh, despite the fear-mongering, I seriously doubt we're in for a digital-only future - there is too much demand for physical media. It's just a small minority of major AAA publishers painfully out of touch with their target audience. These same people seemed to think smartphone gaming would replace handhelds by now...and look at how well the Switch is doing and the 3DS' continued existence.

oh yes Ive been trying to find a copy of Emperor: Battle For Dune but to no avail at all, not avalible digital either so its to pray for that one day it is :(

RTS games are probably the only genre I can play on the highest difficulty, the rest I just die every 2 seconds.

I'm sure it's available digitally, just maybe not legally...

Have you ever played the Warhammer RTS games? I'm kinda hoping those go on sale in June, I'd quite like the chance to try one :o

Surprisingly (considering my general objections to being overcharged for things, and unavailability, and my general attitude to other media like music and anime) I don't emulate much either...or I keep it confined to older titles that I can't find or am unwilling to pay outrageous sums for.

There are a lot of them...there's a £130 bundle on Steam for all of them or something. Kinda hoping for a 75%+ discount. xD

Pirating freeware. Nice. xD;

25 days, in fact. I have a wishlist and a spending limit I'm going to try and stick to this year...last year I went a tad crazy. Humble Bundles have filled things out for me quite a bit too.

I can't wait for the Switch FE game. It looked so amazing.

Gotta play Revelations in the meantime though.

As long as the 3 Houses subtitle doesn't mean 3 games (again), I'm down. :laugh-squinted:

They're obviously for going something different with this FE. Units having command over soldiers it seems, and being able to walk around in cities. Too bad it got pushed back to next year though.

I don't mind separate games like with Fates. Each game was a whole new story and experience, vs something like, cough, Pokemon. Where it's 99% the same game.

    I already have an Edelgard avatar stashed away! She looks great. They all do.

    I'm glad there doesn't seem to be customisation. Fates and Awakening felt too centred around those little gimmicks, whereas Shadows of Valentia was awesome with its already established protagonists, full voice over and more poignant story-line!

      I mean I'd buy 3 more FE games, I just love the series that much :p The games look great though. FE was the game I was most hyped for going into E3 (although the ToV remake and Smash are up there as well :o)
