Ok, I think we should keep blue Tiberium, but lets say that it's a potent aphrodisiac rather than highly unstable, and causes hermaphroditic mutations.

>> No.9339731

Also, because Tiberium Fiends frequent blue Tiberium fields, this means that they're going to be in a perpetual heat frenzy, wrestling down infantry to mount them.

Reddish-purple blobs of pulsating flesh, capable of attack via a biological chemicalthrower.

By C&C2, they'd become more flesh-coloured, lost the chemical sprayer, and made squishy noises as they thumped into things.

Because the Internet is made of stupid /v/irgins, images of the original C&C sprite seem to have been displaced by graphics from the EA heresy.

Oh, their idea of procreation is probably to drag you under a blossom tree (pictured) until the spores turn you into a visceroid too. Then possibly squidge together into one larger visceroid.

GDI is awesome, mostly because I like their idea of "restoring order & freedom" and the heavy vehicles their strategies are based on

in pre EA C&C they represent the first world policies and power which brings the hatred from the third world and Nod takes advantage of that hate to raise their ranks

while Tiberium ravages the poor countries the rich nations are relatively safe, hence why GDI's main bases are in USA, Europe and Japan while Nod's main operational areas are Africa, Asia and eastern Europe

C&C I dealt with the early expansion of tiberium and the rise of Nod, as well some political issues with the funding and influence of GDI

in C&C II Most democratic governments are replaced by the GDI's administration and GDI is loosing ground for Nod while the tiberium spreading is reaching unsafe levels for humanity and the mutant threat is changing earth's environment in a fast pace

C&C III got it right with the GDI vs Nod relations and the military/political organization but the changing the form of the tiberuim infestation and casting the mutants aside was a bad move from EA, the scrin was nice to explain the ship from C&C II and the Tacitus since both Tiberium and the Tacitus have alien origin

I haven't played C&C IV but everything tells me to spare myself from it, but doesn't matter I won't pay for it anyway (Piracy FTW)

this thread had as much potential as C&C4. /tg/ i am disappoint. get back on track and fix this shit. i literally wrote an entire paper on RTS games and how they create such in depth universes the kind of which are usually only found in RPG's. i also mentioned how they are turning from strategy to tactics and are becoming shit in the process. EA canceled an FPS called Tiberium because it didn't measure up to their shit standards, though if you look at footage it looks great and incorporated some good squad control mechanics. that game would have had a chance to explore the Tiberium War environment in detail and could have set the stage for much more.
