Kane’s Wrath (and birthdays)

Finished Kane’s Wrath. God damn, I really lose myself when I play all this games. Stupid Nod missions throw tons of surprises at you.

Especially hate the Temple Prime mission, because I wasted time building up my initial base, only to be stolen by AI and forced to go commando. Not to mention the game crashed at the mission completion. Then the final Nod mission was WTF too, because there’s only 6 mins to capture the final mission objective… but a MARV and a whole fucking base to take out before that…. 2 hours of base building gone down the drain. DAMN YOU EA. Not to mention the stupid Nod campaign ended with more cliffhangers, yet again. Someone, really, please kill EA’s story writers.

On the plus side, it’s pretty fun to play Nod now, and I’m pretty particular to the Black Hand faction. PuriFIRErs are fucking awesome when upgraded. It’s truly a sight to see when a group of 10 Purifiers march in to a fully garrisoned city, and clean it all out in under 3 minutes, with only 2-3 casualties. Flame on, baybeh.

Nod’s new artillery rocks too, and it works way better than Beam Cannons. The new upgrades are fun too, especially Particle beam upgrades. They make base defending really cheap, using Shredder walls. Hell, they work even better than PEW PEW PEW LAZERS.

Haven’t tried the GDI or Scrin factions yet… maybe tomorrow. Also need to try out the Global Conquest mode.

And before I forget, it’s Ayako Kawasumi and Megumi Hayashibara’s birthday today (totally forgot the day, lol). I wish them both another wonderful year (and more roles too).

    I’m surprised that Kane’s Wrath has the same filesize as the original, and yet only has one Nod campaign, while C&C3 had 3, Nod, GDI and Scrin. Hardly feels worth it to play only one faction in the campaign.

    But skirmishes are fun though.

    True. From what I hear, the filesize was huge because the encoded all the videos in 720p, lulz.

    I suspect it’s the Global Conquest mode that’s taking up the filesize actually. Besides… knowing EA, there’ll be a GDI-only expansion, and a Scrin-only expansion to come. Har. har.

    You dare doubt the Prophet? Remember what happened to Brother Obama.. I mean Brother Marcion.

    The final mission is easypeasy. Just depends on how you build your base. The Temple Prime mission is EAASSSSSSYYYYYY. If you played the original, you wouldn’t have built a base because you’re playing against yourself.

    One vision! One purpose!

    Anyone think it apropos to have Natasha Henstridge play a character in this game whose role echoes some of her earlier work?

    Yeah that final mission got me really frustrated too, and since the game doesn’t exactly run that smoothly on my laptop, it sucked that much more.

    Not to mention thats a very well guarded base with tons of structure defenses that even tears up my Mammoth’s armor. And they just HAD to throw in that *%#*!@$! MARV!

    But damn, stealth tanks + specters = ownage!

    Nod is definitely stronger now, although the Redeemer kinda suks compared to GDI and Scrin’s epic unit.

    Ahh, I didn’t realize this was out yet. :) I still haven’t finished the Scrin campaign in the original, stupid mission where you have to use the mind-control unit has got me stuck. :(

    YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!!!!
    rage generator = fun!

    but then again.. yeah.. the redeemer kinda sucked for having only 2 infantry slots…
    2 sabatour, 2 black hand would’ve been ideal…

    also.. MARV IS FUGGLY!!!!

    The Campaign is still annoying not to mention apart from Joe Kucan aka Kane, the actors sucked! especially the blonde.

    oh! and did i mention how FUGGLY the MARV is?
