If you had a few bombers in wait for the finishing blow, do you think they would've had any trouble making it to the construction yard?  Or, even simpler, wouldn't the Nod chemical missile thingie be enough to finish it off?  Even the mine drop ability will damage buildings it lands on.

doh!  it didn't occur to me to send the bombers in.  I gave up on them as their pathfinding seemed to be pretty bad.  I'd click on a target and maybe half the group of 4 would actually move to attack which would give it time to recover.  I did notice that the AI doesn't seem to use any air units at all either.  I don't think the chemical missile damages buildings and I didn't know the mine drop would do that.

I was playing as NOD in skirmish mode last night against a GDI 'turtle' AI opponent, and trust me, 1 nuke did not equal an 'I Win' scenario.  Their MCV withstood a direct hit (albeit it was badly damaged) and I wasn't able to get to it to finish it off as it's troops were spread out.  The AI both seems to show signs of genius and other times be really stupid.  The genius part was the way the units and base was spread out to avoid a single knockdown blow and the really stupid part was it parking 5 of the smaller tanks out in the middle of know where and having them sit still as 4 of the cheaper NOD air units plinked away at them to destroy them.

It's kind of cool that NOD has certain abilities to effect Tiberium, but at the same time they're ratther limited.  the one that causes a chain reaction in tiberium crystals can be pretty devestating, but anyone who has seen it will know not to send units through a tiberium field-  it would have been more effective if it depleted the tiberium that it blew up.

Huh.  It felt forced to me.  But I was also spending the time thinking: How is this a Battlefield game

I believe it's got the multiplayer aspects of a regular Battlefield game but unlike all the others they're actually trying to include a fun single player experience this time around.

I was looking around and the best I found was a recommendation that you write down the specific error and google it as it might be a certain DirectX DLL that you are missing.

I got nothing on the CoH issue though.

You think the PSU might need an update? Thanks CK-any other thoughts people? Come on!!:)

No prob, except I'm a bit confused where the PSU portion came from......

I'm out for Thursday night.   I was even going to grab a copy of Burnout for MP play but then realized my gaming group is meeting this Thursday (we alternate Wednesday and Thursdays).  Unless it gets cancelled, then I'd be in.
68734  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: C&C3 Demo Today on: February 28, 2007, 03:35:18 PM
I tried the skirmish last night and before I knew it I was being assaulted by ALOT of NOD vehicles and men.  Literally there were 6 vehicles and 10 squads of men and I had only just gotten my vehicle factory up.  Luckily the support turrets build quickly (almost too quickly, more on that in a bit) so I was able to fend off their attack but I was hurting.  Then nothing happened for awhile so I was able to establish a base in the right upper corner and lower right corner with only light skirmishes.  After sending a sniper into their base I immediately used the 3 or 4 unit drops that you get after building a paricular building (not sure which one-  I didn't even notice they popped up in the first place and only glanced over when I was wondering about the Ion Cannon option that I got in the single player).  So the dropped vehicles and men start wreaking havoc on the base and suddenly the AI manages to build several buldings in the middle of the carnage AT THE SAME TIME.  Then the support turrets start building left and right, many at the same time.  I know the AI didn't have any other factories because when I managed to destroy the last power plant and win I had only hit 1 building that looked like a contruction plant and that was one of my first targets.  So either the AI was cheating or there is a time limit that I did not know about.

The SP portion took me back to the first C&C- it's kind of funny the people they have playing the GDI guys.  A scoundrel, a mercenary and a Cylon.  I'll probably still pass on this one though until it hits the bargain bin.  Runs very nicely though with everything cranked except for some chugging during the Ion Strike.

And I'm still waiting until probably the next two episodes which is normally when the fit hits the shan, historically.

well, we know there's at least 2 hours until the 'delivery system' is ready.  I agree though, after the nuke things have slowed down, plus the 'traitor in high places' has gotten kind of old at this point.

I'm not exactly sure what the drum is playing, but I am thinking it's leaning toward the bizarre side of normal.

It's the beat of a drummer being pushed down 30 flights of stairs with his drumset falling right behind him.

I'm not really burned out anymore, but that's probably because I really haven't read a book all the way through in over a year.  I just picked up Terry Brooks 'Armaggedons Children', the first part of a trilogy  which tells the story that bridges the gap between his 'Word and Void' and Shannarra series.

Wrapped up the main story in Crackdown, played a bit of Zelda (about 7 hours in so far) and some Trauma Center (bah, I can't cut in a straight line on that game to save my life!).  Other than that I finally caught up on the rest of my DVR recordings (we hateses you HBO for cancelling Rome! HATESES!!!) and finalized my search for my first laptop.

Oh, I also fired up Gametap for the first time in a month and played some Gun Metal and attempted to run Nocturne, which apparently has some graphics/gameplay issues- everyone was a shadow and one of the beginning cutscenes wouldn't run due to the in game characters trying to go through a door at the same time.  I played through it before when it came out and didn't have any issues.  Oh well, I guess playing it once was enough.  I also grabbed the latest Sam & Max episode from them even though I still haven't gotten around to finishing the first one yet.
