As part of the 12th anniversary of Command & Conquer, the original game is now available as a free download. You’ll need some CD burning software (like Nero) as the game is available as two ISO files, each of which contains one of the game’s original CD’s. Just burn the images to two CD’s, apply the patch (to make the Win 95 based game work on XP) and enjoy.
I never got into Command & Conquer. Nothing against the franchise, I just never got around to trying it. I’m not a big RTS guy to begin with, so this isn’t much of a surprise. Having said that, this game was huge in its day. If you ever wanted to see what you missed, now would be a good time.
Thanks to the Rampant Coyote for the link.
This Game is Too Videogame-y
What's wrong with a game being "too videogameish"?
A screencap comic that poked fun at videogames and the industry. The comic has ended, but there's plenty of archives for you to binge on.
Grand Theft Railroad
Grand Theft Auto is a lousy, cheating jerk of a game.
PC Gaming Golden Age
It's not a legend. It was real. There was a time before DLC. Before DRM. Before crappy ports. It was glorious.
