It’s been a hot minute since I’ve played as Command & Conquer game. I used to be obsessed with Red Alert and Red Alert 2 especially. I remember in college when we had the LAN connection and we’d play with people in my dorm suite. Oh those were the days. Anywho, since that time I haven’t gotten back into that RTS type of game and I decided with this new mobile version, it was time to get back in. 

EA has gotten a lot of flack for their microtransitions and general bastardizing of franchises but so far, I have to say, I’m having a blast. The game runs very smooth on my 6th generation iPad with the animations working as they’re supposed to. The gameplay is fast and furious with matches lasting only a couple of minutes. While I miss the good ol days where I could build a base for hours and slowly destroy my enemies however I wanted, whenever I wanted; I get why they went this route with it being a mobile game. They want people to idly play while they are supposed to be doing work or paying attention to their spouses, whatever. 

For now, EA has been actively listening to the community for feedback on how to improve things and it SEEMS like they are making amends for their past behavior. Time will tell as to what the future will hold, but for the moment, Command & Conquer: Rivals is an entertaining good time.

Tuesday Blusday – Movie & TV Home Releases for 6/18/19

Sooooo, this is really random but there's only one movie out this week. IT's Jordan Peele's 'Us' and that's it. I'd like to have a bunch of snarky comments to leave you with but I don't. The movie is decent enough and I'd be interested in the documentaries. That's...

Weekly One Up – June 18, 2019 – Citizens of Space, Captain Cat and More

In all honesty, it takes a lot to impress me game-wise. I'm an ancient curmudgeon that would probably rather play old games than keep up with the new stuff you young whippersnappers are into.But hey, there's a new Animal Crossing coming in March...
