Along with its remastered versions of the C&C and Red Alert soundtracks, they've put up an album of hard-rockin' new recordings from C&C composer Frank Klepacki and his band, The Tiberian Sons. Put a pep in your step on…

Feature: Upgrade complete

Every remastered game should have an upgrade sequence like Command & Conquer Remastered Collection

You know you're onto a winner when your heart swells ten times its normal size out of pure excitement from the boot-up sequence for the remaster of a game you never played. I was far too young to even comprehend Command & Conquer when it first came out in 1995, and to my great shame it's never been something I've sought out in the intervening…

Command & Conquer Remastered is a big hit of nostalgia – but will it be a great RTS?

Ahead of its launch on June 5th, I've been able to see the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection in action, and it certainly looks the part. The quarter-century-old RTS, as well as comrade Red Alert and their squad of three expansion packs, have been sent over the top of their pixellated trench, and into the high-res carnage of no-man's-land. Malaysian art house Lemon Sky Studios…

Command & Conquer Remastered Collection is coming June 5th

The Command & Conquer Remastered Collection will deliver its overhauled versions of the original Command & Conquer and Red Alert (plus expansions) on June 5th, Electronic Arts announced today. Westwood's cheery 'n' cheesy real-time strategy games from the 90s come with fancying-up including redrawn high-resolution artwork, support for mahoosive monitors, a revamped interface, remastered sound, and a new multiplayer backend. And yes, absolutely, they've touched…

Command & Conquer’s infamous FMV cutscenes have been wrangled into high definition

Slowly, but surely, we've been drip-fed more deets on Command & Conquer Remastered - EA's upcoming HD re-release of Tiberian Sun and Red Alert. Last year we got a brief look at C&C Remastered's scaled up assets. They're very nice, too, sharpening decades-old art to bring it up to a modern standard without going overboard on fancy effects. But what about Command & Conquer's (in)famous…

9 of the best games with time travel

And with that we are another year closer to the eagerly anticipated cooling of all matter. You may have read that the concept of weeks, months and years is the culmination of humanity’s collective understanding of a complicated astronomical pattern. It's an interesting take. However, the correct hypothesis was posited by your stoner housemate Jed from university. “Time is, like, a construct,” he said, with…

Here’s a first, brief look at Command & Conquer Remastered

Staring at a screen for 20+ years tends to make things blurry. My solution is to completely ignore the ravages of time on my eyes and to hope that things will work out anyway. And they did! EA have been working on a Command & Conquer remaster that sharpens the original sprites and deblurs the destruction, so I can more easily make out the Nod's…

Have You Played…Command & Conquer: Red Alert?

Command & Conquer: Red Alert asks one question: what would happen if Hitler never existed? As a sort of side project/pseudo-sequel to the original Command & Conquer, Red Alert begins with Soviet scientists going back in time to assassinate the uber-fascist. The consequences are felt throughout the series but in the original, war breaks out anyway, and you can either side with the Allies (who…

EA get the band back together for Command & Conquer and Red Alert remasters

EA have now officially announced their Command & Conquer remasters, and they look to be in good hands. Several of the strategy classics's original developers are returning, including talent from ex-Westwood folks Petroglyph and original composer Frank Klepacki. Together, they're polishing up the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, along with its alt-history cousin C&C: Red Alert, plus all expansions for both games. Preempting the…
