One of my favorite RTS's of my childhood, Command and Conquer Red Alert 2 is free on origin at the moment. If you haven't played it I would definitely recommend getting it and giving it a try. Its great for singleplayer and multiplayer, and relatively strategic for how simple it may seem at a first glance.
Great Odin's raven, is that a MOBA in a Fisticuffs?!
Your eyes do not deceive you, friend, for the Gods have decided that it was time for me to experience other gaming genres, to get me out of my comfort zone. And the best way to do that is for me to get steamrolled by friends and family alike.
Just in case you've been living under a rock, or have your fingers in your ears at the mere thought of MOBAs like I do, Smite is an incredibly popular third-person MOBA focusing on Gods and mythologies from around the world. It is a lot easier to jump into casually than the other big hitters in the genre, such as League of Legends or DotA 2. At least, I've found it a lot less daunting in my brief experiences with them.
And here's a trailer that conveys none of that!
This Friday, 18/09/2015, at 8pm (UCT/GMT + 12 hours) we will be entering Valhalla. Witness me on Steam and Skype (campbellbusch), and download Smite for free on Steam in preparation.

Occasionally* PEAR and I play us some Warcraft3 on the Gameranger. It's way easy and a great time. Occasionally* one of us drafts up a scenario on the WorldBuilder, which is pretty easy and unrestricted. So long as we have the same game version, it works a charm every time no problems.
The whole hero concept in Warcraft3 is nice, and you can use already existing ability templates to make your own hero ideas without trying too hard, then play with triggers and shit to get it really nice and elegant. It's where DOTA came from, etc etc.
Anyone here keen to play around with some warcraft3? I know for a fact that I'm trash at the proper game, but down to fuck about. I can't be the only one nostalgic for Beastmasters, Infernals and the Ernerald Gardens
