How is it going TAY? Spooktober is over, no more pumpkins, no more hopefully fake skeletons, and no more candy. Well, maybe not the last one, they’re delicious any time of the year. So welcome back to the mundane every day life and would you look at that, it’s the first Open Forum of the month, what an honor. As usual, I’m hope you’re all doing just fine.

So this last week I ended up revising some classic RTS’s from way back in the day, Dawn of War and Red Alert 2. Also, while I’m at it, installing Red Alert 2 in modern operating system is a fucking nightmare! I only got the base game running, still need to figure out Yuri’s Revenge. DoW was worse than I remember. The camera is far too close for a strategy game and I found my options to be somewhat lackluster, especially when it came to the Imperial Guard (my favorite). And so what better time to start modding the hell outta the game? I finally gave Ultimate Apocalypse a chance and by the Emperor it is beautiful. When it isn’t crashing like a Burnout car at max speed.

Questions!

  • How’s the week?
  • What are your favorite mods?
  • What’s the oldest game on your collection?

Now go and Talk Amongst Yourselves! And if you feel like talking with some other peeps in real time, why not join the TAY Discord server? We have fun and games and maids. No, seriously.
