Command and Conquer remaster.

So this came out in May and I thought I'd give it a little time before bringing it up. Mainly because I was so hyped for it that my opinion and review' would have been bias.

The one thing to know about a remastered game, is that it's meant to just be a clone with upgraded graphics. However, that means that the plethora of bugs and issues that was in the original game, are also in the remaster...

The pathfinding of the AI is just, stupid.
As you can see from this screenshot, the AI has no clue what social distancing is...

Also, when large armies are moving, it causes the game's texture loading script to completely collapse. This means your input is delayed by as much as 90 SECONDS. This is totally game breaking and means you can be defeated without even challenging your enemies army...

Also there was a big balancing issue in the single player campaign for some reason, Mission 8A on Tiberian Dawn and 12C on Red Alert were actually impossible to complete lol.

Thankfully they released a patch yesterday which fixed most of the issues, but some still persist.
I think the game is heading in the right direction, but there is a way to go yet.

For £17.99 you could buy much worse.

I wonder if Sports Interactive(SI) will add the virus of 2020 to their next Football Manager game.

I know it seems a silly thing to wonder, but SI are known for including real world events in their game. Things like failed drugs tests, brexit etc, have all been included in their games.

If they include it, I wonder how it will work. A couple of leagues have decided to void their seasons and a couple have ended them early and announced league winners. So will this work on a chance percentage or will it stick with what happened in reality and have some leagues end early and some postpone until a later date?

What do you think?

Has anyone been playing the closed Beta of Riot-Games FPS title Valorant?
A lot of people are claiming this is going to be the cement boots to Counter-Strike.

You can definitely see the Counter-Strike influence as well as their own League of Legends graphics and ability mechanics. Will certainly be interesting to see how this turns out.

Doubt I'll get a beta key, looks sick tbf, if the abilities aren't too central to winning rounds I think it could be a decent contender to CS, where all others have failed.

Doom Eternal is an absolute masterpiece.

Everything about the game is as close to perfect you can get. Both slow paced and relentless, complex but simple, fun but very difficult(especially on Nightmare difficulty) and full of lore (story), which is totally optional.

I highly recommend this game if you're big on shooters, love the Doom franchise and can cope with how intense the gameplay can be.
8/10 - probably game of the year.

With Doom Eternal just 7 days away, I thought I'd share a theory.

Doom Slayer / The Slayer / Doom Guy / The Doom Marine, is the Emperor of Man in Warhammer 40k, and the Doom games are his origins story. Here is why I think this.

- He has been bestowed "Terrible power" by the Seraphim.
- He fights against Daemons(Chaos army)
- He is the only one they fear.
- His Praetor suit is a precurser to Space Marine armour(shoulder cannon and retractable blade).
- He has a strong liking for heavy weapons and chainsaws.
- He has walked through the Dark Realm(The Warp).
- He was the leader of the 'Night Sentinels'(AKA the Grey Knights)
-He is the saviour of Humanity.
- And finally, let's be real here... Doom Slayer is arguably the only video game character from outside of Warhammer, that could have an impact on that universe. He is a massively overpowered character that has no equal in his own game, even his enemies are terrified of him.

This is such a good theory!!! I wish we had more 40K video games, loved space marine but I'm pretty sure they shut the servers down :(

Actually there may be a complete change to online PC gaming in the next few years, as there are some services that will allow you to play high end games on low end PC's. Services such as 'Nvidia GeForce Now' and 'Google Stadia' are growing their list of available games and the technology is improving monthly.

This will negate the need to buy an expensive hardware just to play the latest games. Could be interesting, especially if it's made available to console too.

Maybe. But don't expect it to last long lol. PC's are always upgrading, optimising and setting new records.

You may need to look on youtube at some of the enthusaist builds, they are comparable to super computers some of them lol.

Gaming is like clam hunting. You'll come across loads of empty shells, but once in a while, there is a brilliant pearl hidden amongst it all.

To be fair I think gaming in general has been progressively getting bigger ever since about 2008, but the professional eSports has been in decline or plateaued. It had it's peak back in about 2013/14 when League of Legends had that $25 million prize tournament.

Since then, streaming really caught on which has more or less put professional gaming on the back shelf. Players like Summit1g and Shroud bailed on professional gaming because it's more profitable to stream.

Plus there is the CSGO market place. Where people sell pixels(gun skins) for money, all because they have a unique pattern or whatever. You can make quite a huge profit on there if you know how to trade and when to buy/sell.

I think if you're talking purely about gaming then yes, this time in lockdown will give it a massive boost, which will likely lead to more people sticking around on it.

Professional eSports may get a slight boost, but it's pretty much just seen as a stepping stone to making it big on streaming.

Thank God for two new releases within 3 months. Doom Eternal(which is amazing by the way) and Command and Conquer remasters(C&C and Red Alert), which I am going to sink a monsterous amount of hours into.

I've already completed Doom Eternal on Ultra Violence difficulty and started on Nightmare tonight, which will probably take me quite a few sessions as the game play is so intense at times.

Command and Conquer comes out in June I think and the gameplay videos that came out, have been really impressive. Everything is just a slightly updated version of what it already was, enabling higher resolution graphics. However they have added a couple of new features, such as unit queuing (THANK YOU!), a Skirmish mode for the original C&C and all new sound tracks to go with the originals, including previously discarded tracks that didn't make the cut for the original release. There is apparently more to be announced, such as possible new units and bonus campaign missions.
My only worry is that it's got an EA label on it. I know it's not specifically made by EA, as it's being made by some of the original dev team from Westwood Studios, but EA like to interfere, set boundries, cut budgets, liquidate development teams and many more horrible things, so I am a little hesitent to go all in on it. I am at about 90% though...
