    • Top 10 RTS games (personal list)

      2 weeks ago


      Been meaning to this for a while now- especially since i hate my journals being rare between since last march. I like writing stuff and if i can provide entertainment or at least something interesting to people, then why not?

      Also, if anyone has any good RTS to suggest, please do!

      For this list i will be focusing more toward traditional base building RTS, although i do have few TW games in it.

      10. Empire Earth

      I first played it for a short while as a kid, yet those few hours i was able to play it left lasting impression- i only recently found this game again and i still love it. Odd thing is that i kept thinking it as Age of Empires and it does share a lot of traits, but where it goes far beyond AoE is its age system- you can progress from stone age to era where you have space warriors! Many talk about Rise of Nations, but this is much better, although its age is indeed showing at this point. Still, extremely fun to pit star wars troopers against cavemen

      9. Stronghold

      First played it ages ago, when i still had PC that barely could run it (my first PC that i could call my very own was some old junk that i had up until 2008 i think). I remember game starting up solid 5 to 10 minutes on my old PC, where i had to delete everything else to fit it on. Its fun medieval castle building sim with combat in. Building impenetrable fortress was so fun, as was launching successful attacks. Its still very decent game, although Stronghold Crusader is more known & has bit more features. Not fast-paced by any means though as you have to build up stable economy, including weapons manufacturing to host any army and resources are varied- you need food, wood, stone, iron, etc. And resources are walked to stockpile. Still, decent planning helps a lot

      8. Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium wars

      World is in peace, Nod seems to be in disarray & GDI lowers its guard and focuses more on stopping spread of tiberium that has gotten so bad that most of the planet is uninhabitable (red zone) or barely so (Yellow zone). There are number of blue zones, that are safe & clean and under GDI protection. Suddenly Nod strikes. Seems like run-of-the mill c&c story, doesnt it? Well, this time they throw aliens into play as well and overall this entry of c&c franchise has some detailed story writing, although it has in-universe errors. Oh and also really decent mods (my favourite is tiberium essence, which brings lot of stuff from tiberian sun)

      7. Age of Empires 2

      What can i say- classic. Its quite safe bet that if you have heard of any RTS, its this one. And rightly so- simple, yet complex enough to keep you thinking things through. Campaigns are also real treat. And if everything else fails- how do you turn this on?

      6. Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun

      One of my favourite games and first game on PC i have solid memory of playing (although probably not first overall). The sci-fi unit design, factions that focus on their specific playstyle, flawed & cheesy, yet interesting story told through movie clips.. What more can you want? Send that army of titans & wolverines to enemy base! Oh wait, banshees? dang.

      5. Stronghold 2

      Advanced version of Stronghold. Much more stuff, lot more options. Has few flaws, like too low population cap and estate system isnt extremely clear, but overall better than original.

      4. Empire: Total War

      If only this game would be more moddable & wouldnt suffer from peformance issues due to design... Gunpowder-era total war & also one that introduced naval battles. But its real treat is its campaign map & thus factions- for first time you have India & North America (well, ok, technically speaking we already had that in M2TW) accessible in same campaign. with their own factions! And very creative AI! It was always fun seeing cherokees trade florida for iceland or bavaria go on world-conquering spree (without any player involvement). Only game where i have fun just by securing my own borders.

      3. Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2

      Crazy units, totally different & wacky factions, well, its a treat! Its easy to see why this is as popular as it is,  because its just so silly that its good. Yet at same time it DOES play good

      2. Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn (aka C&C 95)

      The original c&c. Its this high on list because well, remember that old crappy PC i had? i played this over and over and over again on it. And its so good that i still play it. Not many games hold up to test of time as well as this one

      1. Medieval 2: Total War

      Best total war game- while it does show its age, its incredibly moddable, has amazing mods and even main content isnt anything to scoff at. Several factions with their strengths and weaknesses and unique units. Also shows real power of gunpowder.

    • videos....

      2 months ago


      Blargh. i hate my mind sometimes. Remember when i said i will make new gameplay videos? Well, i have and at same time i havent. I have recorded few videos but before i can upload them, i just scrap them.

      Why? Because on one side i want to make videos but on other, i want to make decent videos throughout the game (or in case of MP, well, just decent vids). Though tbh i doubt i will start making great videos off the bat (considering quality of my existing videos). But positive thinking!

      Alright, enough about babble. I really, REALLY will get some videos out soon. Though if anyone has some hints, i'd be more than happy to recieve them

    • Life update

      3 months ago


      Ok, time to post something. geesh, has it really been 6 months since my last journal? In any case, whats been happening after my last post. Well, i moved to new place and im now working as person who calls people to sell them stuff. Been also playing lot of Overwatch.

      Also real happy about how Life is Strange: Before the Storm has turned out. its so good!

      I also like that RT decided to bring back Paypal (been waiting that for ages).

      And i know i've said it before, but i WILL start making videos again, maybe even streaming next month. This time no joke- see, so far i only have had 60GB (lately 75GB (as in i can only use 75GB net)) internet plan, but next month my ISP is going to upgrade it to unlimited! And this has been my main obstacle! 

      Damn, it actually feels nice that my life has improved in those few months. Been used to things going worse all the time, this is actually first time since, well, over a decade that i feel things are improving.

    • Rest in peace

      10 months ago


      This is not fishing for sympathy, i just have to write this just to manage....

      Today, 30th of march 2017, 9:30 my dear grandmother passed away at age of 83. At time of her death, she had a daughter, 5 grandchildren and 4 greatgrandchildren.

      She was sick for long time but it still hurts like hell. She was also only grandparent that was still alive when i was born- even more, she and i shared a birthday (13th august) with exactly 60 years between..

      She was very kind and caring person..

      Rest in peace, grandmother. I will miss you a lot.

    • Fact of the day (01.03.2017)

      11 months ago


      I have to admit- this one is directly linked to news that popped up today.

      Operation Albion was biggest and most successful naval landing operation conducted by German navy during WW1. The aim of this operation was to conquer islands of Saaremaa, Hiiumaa & Muhumaa (all located in boundaries of modern Estonia, that at the time belonged to Russian Empire). It lasted about a month in late 1917. 

      Strategically, those islands were considered unimportant until revolutions happened- german high command tought it would outflank russian positions & open door to St. Petersburg to press newly-risen communist leaders to end war. Secondary motive is likely to give german navy something to do after above-water fleet was sitting in harbour for almost 1,5 years after battle of Jutland.

      Operation itself was successful. But it didnt bring consequence german high command was hoping- pushing Russia out of the war completely. That goal was achieved in early 1918 after germans occupied rest of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus & Ukraine, with navy approaching Petersburg.

      Why this fact? Battlefield 1 DLC content was revealed- and russian DLC contains operation Albion. I am incredibly happy over it as it is only the 3rd time AAA game has included Estonia in (excluding games with grand map gameplay, such as Hearts of Iron or Total War). First 2 were Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn (2 missions, GDI campaign openings) and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. I am most happy about this particular entry though as i am complete history geek

      Talk about pleasant suprises to wake up to- apparently i am featured user at moment of writing this journal. 

      Thank you a lot! I seriously dont know what else to say.. Except, hm.. How about a fact? :D

      First full-length narrative feature film (according to UNESCO) is considered to be "The Story of the Kelly Gang"- an 1906 year's silent film from Australia. It followed- as you can imagine by its name- gang of Ned Kelly, famous australian outlaw (irish descent).

      Movie was recieved critically well, it was directed by Charles Tait & filmed near Melbourne. It actually held another record during its release- it was the longest running narrative film yet seen in world, as it lasted over an hour & it had 1200 meters (4000 ft) of reel length. 

      In case you want to compare it to modern movies, its budget was either 400 or 1000 australian pounds (sources differ) and it made 25 000 australian pounds in box office. Adjusted for inflation its either 57,798.76 AUD (australian dollars) or 144,496.89 AUD. Box office made 3,612,422.36 AUD. 

      All in all, compared to modern blockbusters, this doesnt seem like huge ammount of money, but keep in mind back then there wasnt so big network of distribution & advertisment as there is now, so its decent.

      And in case you want to see the movie, im afraid most of the movie has not survived, although historians have managed to save pamphlets that describe how movie went as well as restore 17 minutes worth of footage, including key moment of Ned Kelly's last stand. Restored footage can be seen in movie's wikipedia page

    • Twitter madness

      1 year ago


      I witnessed very funny thing not too long ago. Well, funny for me. bear with me.

      I use my twitter mainly for throwaway stuff (i.e participating in giveaways, competitions), though lately i do more meaningful tweets (still, im not very tweety person- i only say stuff when i have something to say). During the time i have had twitter, i have 20 followers (hit the mark today (que most unimpressed "wow")), with most being spambots apparently, though one follower is person i know from real life. 

      Now, 20th follower is interesting, because apparently it is real person (posts regularly on his twitter) and he seems to be youtuber with respectable subscriber base (from what i can see, around 8 million- never heard of the guy though). Furthermore, twitter account seems to be legit from sources i can find.

      All seems good, right? i tought so too for splitsecond when i saw his 1 000 000 followers, but then i glanced at "following" number.

      How many people would you manage to follow? 50? 100? 200? Well apparently this guy is using good ol' "i follow you, you follow me" trade, because i saw him following 700 000+ (wont specify exact number- dont really want to rat person out- plus it would be free advertising) people. Seven hundred thousand (and im not making this up). Thats bit more than half the people that live in my country numerically speaking.

      I've heard of people doing so in scales of 2-3000, but this scale? Simply baffling. And whats even more mindblowing for me is that people still fall for this. Just... how? Im laughing so hard but at same time im honestly shocked by that as well. This is just so ridicolous!

      Witch's cake sounds more like halloween dessert, but that is one food you never want to touch. See, this particular cake was made out of ashes, rye flour & witchcraft's victims urine. It was used to determine who was responsible for victims condition.

      How it worked was that this cake wasnt (thankfully) fed to human, but to a dog of the family (poor dog). That was supposed to get dog talking to reveal witches name. Why a dog? Dog was believed to be a common familiar associated with devil

      First known case of usage of witch cake was during Salem witch trials (at very start of them i might add).

      I can also say that the time it was used during Salem trials it didnt work, plus church was quick to denounce it, with people connected to making it ended up being on trial themselves (one died in prison, other confessed (which granted her exemption from execution) & later turned into accuser).

      The term "dogfight" originates from WW1. While earliest plane vs plane battles happened in 1913 during Mexican revolution, term originates from air battles held over ww1 theatres, when pilots had to turn off the engine so it wouldnt stall on quick turns in air. When pilots restarted the engine in midair, it made sound similar to dog barking, hence the term "dogfight".
