I'm back and the grand total of mod watch updates is 235. Not as many as it could have been, but enough to keep me busy for a while. I would have been one yesterday had my modem not decided to stop working. Oh well. I used the internet blackout time to get back into CnC3. I've been trying to get though the single player campains for a while now but keep getting interupted and forgetting about it. This seems to happen to me a lot with RTS games. I had managed to finish the GDI campain and get about half way though the Nod. Now I'm on what I think is the last Nod mission.
There's also some demos out that I'm going to be checking out. Most notably Empire: Total War. I haven't really be a big TW fan in the past, but they've been growing on me that last few years. Empire looks really great, as do all TW games, and the addition of Naval combat looks to be a great additon. I can't wait to see what modders can do with this puppy!
The other demo of note is HAWKS. Some of my old favorits are flight sims so I'm hoping this one does well. Other than Ace Combat, there hasn't been any real flight sims out in a while. Not many good ones, to be sure. I wouldn't expect this one to get modded much, though. It's one of those games that might get a few reskins or maybe some new maps (if the devs releice the tools) but it's not likely that anyone will take the time to make a full total conversion.
