26 Years And Counting

Posting anniversary posts is bittersweet these days. On one hand, I’ve received some feedback in the past few months from game researchers who are glad that a center of information for the Command & Conquer franchise still exists, but on the other… the community is just not there anymore. A few long-standing mods get updated,…

Command & Conquer Promotional VHS Digitized

 Resident C&C collectors have caught wind of a promotional VHS tape for the original Command & Conquer that was shown in stores before the game’s release (as evidenced by the stated May 1995 release date, which ended up being pushed to September), and features various footage and explanations from the developers themselves.

Anniversaries have a tendency to creep up on one.

First Sole Survivor Servers in 20 Years In Development

On 1 January 2002, official Sole Survivor servers on (the now also former) Westwood Online were shut down, leaving the series’ first multiplayer-centric title without a way to play online. Only repetitive 15-minute deathmatches against AI opponents have been available to us since then. A small group of community members (OmniBlade, CCHyper, tomsons26) have taken…

So, where has 2021 gone?

Remember us? No? Thought so. As you may have noticed, the site has been scarcely touched since June. This only partly has to do with the usual excuses of real life stuff (professional and private), diverting attention to other and far larger projects (working on an unannounced RTS for 3D Realms/Slipgate Ironworks, maintaining and adding…
