I just loved that just like Red Alert parodied and made a pantomime of the Cold War, the Generals games did the same for the War on Terror. The GLA were so cartoonish you couldn't take them seriously.

I loved those missions where as the GLA you had a urban area and had to gather crates full of UN money (???), it might've just been me but I used the angry mob unit and I found it hilarious that they would be able to like level cities with AK's and molotovs.

one thing i love about the laser general is how OP the laser turrets are

those things have a range that goes far beyond every other defense in the game, seriously. they have two modes of attack; their main attack which is a powerful burst, and a secondary attack which is a smaller burst that can hit out as far as the fog of war has been exposed

i always used to mass tons of them at the central island place on twilight flame and watch as no aircraft or tank/infantry columns could break past them, they could hit pretty much everything

the only thing they couldn't hit were player-micromanaged rocket buggies, since they could skirt just outside of the boundaries of fire and make a quick retreat.

A DAY TO REMEMBER

>>249513685
But RA2 already has enough units. There's so many combinations you can do with just the IFV, or spies or capturing enemy buildings with engineers.
I've played it for years and constantly discovered new stuff.

What a great game, seriously

>>249513685

Precisely why RA2 was best RA .
Yuri was interesting but he was imba as fuck .

I guess as 9/11 and the War on Terror become older and less of an immediate political reality we can look back and see how fucking stupid everything was.

SWG is stupidly powerful against most of the time but relies completely on a couple of really expensive units surviving in small maps (namely aurora alphas and those laser trucks to defend your turrets from missiles)

SWG is completely useless in large maps because you can't move out of your original base to secure resources. Sure you can make an inpenetrable fortress but you won't be able anything but tickle the enemy with your ion cannon and suicide an alpha now and then.

Nope. Scud launchers can be fired instantly when they're constructed (which I think actually makes them faster to fire than SWG's ion cannon) and SWG is hilariously fucked when they lose their paper armored power plants or airfields.

Hell yes, I love doing that. Especially with the spotting abilities of the Patriot Missiles.

Also, did anybody else love Technicals? Aside from having 3 different models for their junk repair ability, they also had three different base vehicles they could be, chosen at random. I loved how it made your GLA army look much more thrown together and less unified. Can't think of another RTS with randomly selected models like that.

It was one of my favourite games growing up, and it made a big impression on me.

The Premier turns to Yuri, who picks up a weird phone. He calls the American silo base. That noise plays and the man who picks up the phone pulls his gun on the man begging him to open the silo doors. The missiles explode in their silo.

Is it done, Yuri?

The units are fun as fuck to mess around with, especially Japan's Transformers. I adore the special ability mechanic. Naval combat is fun too, and I just love seeing amphibious units transform as they run into the blue.
However, things like the special abilities are very vexing for serious play. Always looking out for a magnetic sattelite is boring.

EA was never a good publisher. In the 90's, they had to recall a football game since expecting players to download a 22mb patch over a 33k modem was outright unreasonable at the time.

No one cared because it was fucking funny. The GLA are just some guys who tie fucking guns to the backs of their trucks. Just like most Al Qaeda members are just some guys, and the ISIS guys in Iraq right now are just some guys, and, looking back, most IRA members were just some guys. And it's funny. It's scary and horrible maybe, but it's funny.

>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command_%26_Conquer:_Red_Alert_2
>When Westwood was acquired by Electronic Arts in August 1998, most long-time Westwood employees quit and left Westwood Studios.[4] As such Red Alert 2 was created by a different group of developers than the original Command & Conquer series. This was evident in the different path the game took with regards to storyline and writing, using juvenile humor and dialogue in stark contrast of the serious tone of previous Westwood games.

Everything turned out alright then.

C&C just isn't fit for meta. They tried it with RA3, and then tried it even more with 4, but it just turns the game bland.

Personally, I think C&C works best as a fun spam fest. If you look at the comp scene of C&C, the meta is fucking ridiculous. In C&C3 you got players building turrets/barracks so they can sell them to spam infantry faster (with no loss of money) and in Generals the USA spam rocket humvees, GLA spams quad cannons and China has to try and survive that 'till they get an overlord on the field.

RA3 on the other hand has the blandest meta. Japs always spam mecha tengu, USA spams air and the Soviets just have to try and survive to spam hammer tanks.

Maybe I'm way wrong, but unlike Starcraft, C&C is way more fun to play than watch.
>>
>>249528778
Not necessarily. People generally play RTS for the single player experience. At least one company tried to do a statistics of it and it turned out only 1 in 4 ever went online. And that includes people who logged even once.

CnC was always about the SP, and MP was for kicks.
