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 mess of dross, confusion, and terrible UI design is the storefront the big publishers couldn't beat? Amazing.
The Plot-Driven Door
You know how videogames sometimes do that thing where it's preposterously hard to go through a simple door? This one is really bad.
Do you like electronic music? Do you like free stuff? Are you okay with amateur music from someone who's learning? Yes? Because that's what this is.

Most stories have plot holes. The failure isn't that they exist, it's when you notice them while immersed in the story.

A music lesson for people who know nothing about music, from someone who barely knows anything about music.
