    Hey Guys I just found this story quite by accident on Fanfiction.net and I just cant stop reading it. If anyone of you Command and Conqure fans have read the tragedy that was the Tiberium wars Novel then you'll agree with the Author's assesments. So I feel the need to post a link to this superb fic so that you all may enjoy it as I am.:)


  2. I'm a big fan of the authors FF8 fanfiction, its in a league of its own. Definetly one of the better novelizations of that fandom at ff.net.

    Excellently written.
    Reads just like a good Sci-Fi military novel, say Halo, for reference.

    Exactly, bookmark it!
  9. Somewhat put off by the novel bashing though (not that the novel dosn't deserve it. But it isn't Kevin J. Anderson level of bad.) I meet Peptuck while editing Wikipedia, and we had a discussion over the continuity issues (which arn't that many).

    Despite this, it is a good fanfic, and its nice to see Peptuck put his energies into something creative.

    Plus, it has references to Red Alert. :)

    You saw what it did to the Scrin, right?

    I'm sure the novelization is bad, but having read the Baldur's Gate novelization, I maintain that you C&C fans have nothing to complain about.
  12. Ok, he made them invincible and incorrectly identified a tiberium mutant as one.

    This is small peanuts compared to what Anderson/Brian Herbert did to Dune.

    Yeah I hated how the Scrin were suddenly immune to Railguns and any other form of projectile weapons.

    The novel is absolute shit. I regret paying the £5.99 for it.

    Well, don't worry, the new chapter is definitly worth more-TibWars chapter eight.

    Loved the part where it states how NOD absolutely hates railguns.:p
  19. Why does NOD hate railguns but love laser weaponry ?

    Lasers can serve as a great distraction-

    Railguns seem to be GDI's most powerful conventional weapon. So it stands to reason why NOD would hate to be on the receiving end of them.

    Hmmm, feel sorry for that sergeant, even if he is NOD. Having your leg nearly severed by a railgun round can't be too pleasant!
  23. It has to do more with the combat doctrines of GDI and NOD. Nod has always perferred the exotic and esoteric technologies, as well as weapons that increased their symbolic image. Lasers (notably, the Obelisk of Light) are one of the key examples. Also, Nod tends to minitarize energy weapons, where as GDI just focuses on practable, conventional weapons and just update their orbital energy weapons.
