When I heard about Praetorians - HD Remaster, I couldn’t wait to enter Nate’s PC via the floppy disc drive and haunt it for the weekend.…

Commandos 2 HD Remaster is due a patch fixing bugs and poor performance

A fancied-up rerelease of a venerated WW2 squad tactics game sounds grand but the reality of Commands 2 HD Remaster is less splendid. Following its launch on Friday, many players have complained about bugs and poor performance - a surprising problem considering it doesn't look wildly different to its original incarnation 19 years ago. The makers responded over the weekend, saying ah, yeah, whoops, we'll…

Perpetually Cool: White Death

Tim Stone remembers the war. The Commandos 2 war. Well, one level of it, at least.I suspect I'm not alone in using games as climatic counterweights. In the depths of winter, I like to thumb my dripping nose at rapacious energy companies by relying on digitized deserts and jungles for background warmth. In the midst of blacktop-softening summer heatwaves, I'm often to be found skimming…
