With every Command and Conquer release, there are the inevitable mods.
We’ve seen just about everything: from C&C to RA universe mods (and vice versa), country-specific armies, mods based on different timelines like the Middle Ages or 2150 AD, and even sci-fi mods pattered after Star Wars and Star Trek. And we’ve played just about every one of them to tell you that some are not even worth the hosting space that they occupy, let alone the 12-hour download time for a 300GB file pack.
But what makes these mods unworthy is that they all take themselves too seriously. Sure, a fan mod IS supposed to adhere to canon and all that stuff. But when things get a little too anal that gameplay becomes too complex, the game itself no longer becomes enjoyable but becomes an exercise to settle just which unit or hero has the greater range or shield according to fandom.
Which is why we here at Game Generals have decided to bring the fun back into the game and come up with our own unique mods.
Did you ever wonder if Dora’s Mexican bunch will last long when faced off against the Powerpuff Girls? Or if Space Ghost can tackle the shit out of Mojo Jojo?
Instead of choosing between GDI and Nod, or the Allies and Soviets, you get to side with either Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon. Then build your base and pump your army using the characters of your chosen network (all copyrighted, of course). At least we can turn all those repetitive Ben 10 games into something useful, and bash the living hell out of the other camp.
Seriously. What kid in a picnic never thought of waging war against an anthill?
You get to choose between three sides: ants, termites, or humans. The ants have numerical superiority and the advantage of fast repopulation, while termites have bigger size, better speed and armor. Of course, the sole human has the firepower advantage, wielding water bombs, the pinclip barrage, and the most awesome superweapon in the picnic field: the magnifying lens deathray.
Your goal is to defend your colony while at the same time ransacking the human picnic basket. As human, you need to wipe out the bases of both insects before your picnic basket supplies run out.
As they say, saying is easier than doing. And we sure as hell ain’t no game developer. So somebody who knows how to code: please turn our awesome ideas into reality.
