Can the old men hack it at this RTS?

Act of Aggression - 4v2 Comp Stomp Co-Op Stream Recap and Impressions

Last night's Monday Night Stream consisted of the new RTS from developer Eugen, Act of Aggression. The game is clearly a throwback to a title and series many of us loved - Command and Conquer. From the music, to the units, to the presentation and even some of the special abilities - the inspiration is clear and frankly that's a good thing for those of us who grew up gaming on computers in the 1990s. Yes we're old gamers trying to play an RTS with a APM of about 7.

Sweet, sweet PMC goodness

Meet Act of Aggression's Newest Faction: The Cartel

When you're ordering countless soldiers to death on the blood-stained sands of the cruel RTS fields, it's better if those particular guys are total jerks. That way you don't have to endure any crisis of conscious after an artillery strike wipes them all out. Introducing the third faction for Act of Aggression: the Cartel. The Cartel operates as a PMC with some of the most advanced tech in the entire game, which is entirely the opposite of what I figured it would be. I thought the Cartel would field a bunch of drug runners with gold-plated desert eagles, funded entirely by the drug trade. I was not expecting supersoldiers blazing through Marines with laser rifles.

Act Of Aggression Brings The Comp Stomp To You

These days, "classic" real time strategy games are few and far between.  Many of the genre's latest entries offer some sort of subversion on the typical tropes, which is more than welcome, but makes me long for the days of massive troop formations and invincible laser convertibles.  I suppose you could make the argument that Act of Aggression is subverting recent subversions to recreate those definitive RTS mechanics, but then you'd be distracting from the game's sick laser tanks.
