I am excited to hear that Electronic Arts, the owner of my favorite strategy game, announced a remastering of the old Command & Conquer games. Before anyone complains that EA will charge for micro-transactions, Jim Vessella (an EA producer) says there will be none. I can't really trust EA after the many games they cancelled and bad mobile ones they made. We saw how C&C Rivals was and the negative reception fans gave it. I hope they bring back two of the classics I loved. Tiberian Sun (including the Firestorm expansion) and Red Alert 2 (which includes the Yuri's Revenge expansion). I am aware how similarly War Commander plays to these two isometric games, at least in the beginning.

I just watched a video on the top 15 strategy games that do not require an Internet connection and I liked it! I always imagined a game that you download to a computer or mobile phone and play anytime without needing to go online first. I played RTS's in the past and most of them did not need a connection and ran at great speeds because of that. The only games I disliked playing DID require a connection. Among them were Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight and War Commander (which both require persistent connections to run and are slow). I think the offline RTS's are the future of strategy games, and I am still hoping that Kixeye gets on the bandwagon and makes one.
How about a downloadable version of War Commander that you can play anytim…Read more >
It's a new year and another chance for me to live a good life. I call 2018 my year of redemption for that reason. I wish time travel were possible because I made so many stupid mistakes. I even made a few dumb mistakes concerning War Commander that I also want to correct. I would either go back to August 2011 and play the game from the very beginning, or stop myself from playing the game at all. Perhaps I should have kept playing because then I would not have hurt my friends last year. I was a rude jerk to them and I need to make up with them somehow.
As for the time travel part, I have been studying wormholes and how it could be done. I just need one leading to 2011 to open up in my house and I will be able to fix my life. I can still drea…Read more >
You may already know this, but I am going to come clean anyway. I stopped playing War Commander again for two reasons. Reason 1: I couldn't keep up with the special events since my life got in the way (this happens all the time to me and I can't avoid this). Reason 2: I was bored with the slow game play. Of course I could have switched to Rogue Assault but I sent my cell phone back to Apple in the mail. Plus I prefer PC gaming to mobile gaming (this is mostly because I grew up with Command & Conquer games, which are mostly PC games).
I am going to compare War Commander to my favorite online RTS game Tiberium Alliances, which you can try at this link . It's free and you don't have to pay for anything. War Commander is kind of like that, but …Read more >
I think Kixeye had some good ideas for War Commander, but I think they should have stuck with the original concepts when the game was great. As a person who likes traditional real time strategies and plays Command & Conquer a lot, I have some of my own ideas.
I was thinking that instead of building just one base over a long period of time in one sector, players should get to quickly build a base every time they log in and on whichever map they want to play. Every build time should be quick like it is in the mobile game Rogue Assault. As for the prize units, I think they should be unlocked in a permanent tech tree to be used in later skirmishes. Remember the old events in 2012 and 2013 before the event shop was created? That is what I am th…
