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…

EA quietly announce a Command & Conquer anniversary remaster

Rather than open with a press release or trailer, EA have chosen to quietly announce an official Command & Conquer remaster on Reddit. In a post from EA producer Jim Vessella, he says the studio have plans for the series's fast-approaching 25th anniversary. While it sounds like it's just one game being updated for now, Vessella's statement suggests that more may be planned. He has…

Spawn Point: how to get into real-time strategy

Hello. This is Spawn Point, a new not-quite-regular feature in which we take a genre, series or other facet of gaming culture, and try to convince you to give it a shot. It might be those hero shooters you’ve always wanted to get into, or that terrifying space game played by thousands of jerks. We’ll briefly explain the thing, followed by some ways for you…

Have You Played Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Oddly, Tiberian Sun was the first C&C I ever played. I spent at least a year of my life obsessed with Dune 2, but Command and Conquer itself and Red Alert arrived during my dark ages - the period where I didn't have…

Alice’s Evening… Stare? Blade Runner Blues

"What is walking and do walking simulators simulate it?" sounds like the sort of toss I'd open a post with. "And if a walking simulator isn't simulating walking, can a game simulate a walking simulator without walking at all?" Good. Great job, Alice. Alternatively, I could say that if you click on through, you can watch a peaceful and pleasant video with nine minutes of…

Have You Played… Blade Runner?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. It feels like stepping into Ridley Scott's film. Sets and touchstones are lovingly recreated. Machinery clicks, beeps, and wheezes exactly as you'd expect. The atmosphere is malevolent, and you're quickly in over your head. But wait, I say as if the headline and…

Three C&Cs For Free

Free C and C Four Three. C Free and Three Four C. She sells seashells on the seashore. Aaargh. Anyway! The first three Command & Conquer games: no-pennies. A welcome promotional wotsit by EA on the eve-ish of C&C4: Tiberian Twilight, the only price you have to pay to get your hands on C&C, Red Alert and Tiberian Sun (plus the Firestorm expansion) is to…

Red Alert Free

Do you see what I did there? Because 'free' rhymes with 'three' and... I'm so sorry. It was either that or an 'In Soviet Russia, retro RTS downloads you' gag. Yes, the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert is now available for no-pennies, to promote the upcoming RA3 and to celebrate today marking 13 years of C&C all-told. Which seems an odd birthday to make…
