Tiberian Sun Is Getting Added To The Command & Conquer Fan Remake

I’ve spoken about OpenRA before, the fan-driven venture to rebuild the Command & Conquer series in a package more compatible with modern systems.

It already supports the original Command & Conquer, Red Alert and the underrated Dune 2000. But a new addition is now being added into the mix: Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun.


Congrats to everyone who guessed Ashigaru’s ScribbleTaku within minutes. I know that feeling man, I know that feeling.

[hugs Ashigaru a little too tightly]

Tribute Thursday: Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn

When my former housemate packed up his things and departed to enjoy another phase in his life, he lazily, but quite happily, bequeathed his Logitech Attack 3 to me. It’s been sitting in my living room for a good while, and for a while I’ve started at it pondering its best usage.

I thought about firing up X-Wing Alliance or TIE Fighter for a while; maybe even taking on Elite: Dangerous or checking out the Star Citizen modules. But instead, partially spurred on by a stream from the developers of the latter, I decided to exercise my joystick skills in a different arena.

I went to a fan game, one that made use of the ageing but still robust Freespace 2 engine. I went to Wing Commander Saga and the world of Sandman.


Congrats to everyone who managed to guess yesterday’s ScribbleTaku. It was Goldeneye! Although it could probably have been a ton of other games as well.

Hell_Rok managed to guess it first. Congrats!

Look At This Gorgeous Super Nintendo Book

It’s a good time to be alive if you like books about consoles from the 90s. Sega fans got an amazing Genesis/Mega Drive coffee table book last year, and now SNES fans are getting one, albeit with a slightly different approach.


No-one guessed Friday’s ScribbleTaku! Probably a combination of my terrible drawing, and the fact that I deliberately didn’t flip the image correctly to mess with everyone.

Conker's Bad Fur Day Was Once A Very Different Game

One of the filthiest games released on a Nintendo console was originally going to be just another kiddified 3D platformer. Check out some never-before-seen footage of the game that would become Conker’s Bad Fur Day.


Congrats to everyone who managed to guess Dong Tri Phan’s scribble yesterday. It was Mega Man Battle Network! Congrats especially to Straiza who managed to guess it first.

Tribute Thursday: Spycraft: The Great Game

A lot of retro titles ran through my head this week. Master of Orion’s back on the radar. Wing Commander was on my mind, thanks to Cloud Imperium Games and their extended stream. Morning sessions of StarCraft were making me think about what Dune 2000 was like — I never got to play it, being a touch young when it came out, and OpenRA makes it easy game to rediscover. And the 1998 remake of Battlezone is something I’ll undoubtedly revisit before this year is out.

But what left the strongest imprint in my mind for this week came courtesy of one summer holiday many moons ago. Picture this: you’re sitting by the family Christmas tree with your older brother (I only have one), father and mother. You’ve got a shared sack. You go diving through and you find some video games.

One of those video games happens to be Spycraft: The Great Game.


Congrats to Thistler, who correctly guessed yesterday’s ScribbleTaku. It was Street Fighter 2 — Ryu’s stage!
