I'm Gaming Jay: Youtube gamer, let's player, fan of retro games, and determined optimist... Normally I'm working my way through the book 1001 VIDEO GAMES YOU MUST PLAY BEFORE YOU DIE in my Let's Play 1001 Games series. This is a great book with a ton of classic retro games but it doesn't have everything and it's even missing some of my favorite video games. Hence, in Saturday Afternoon Gaming, screw it, I'm just going to play whatever I want! In this series I will be playing some of the best retro games that don't appear in the 1001 VIDEO GAMES YOU MUST PLAY BEFORE YOU DIE book. So pull up a chair, slap on your headphones, and join me as babble aimlessly through some of my most favourite classic games! And hey, if you have ideas or suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments below. I'm always looking for more games to try! Today's game is... Command & Conquer from /redirect? Command & Conquer, sometimes known as Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, is a 1995 real-time strategy video game developed by Westwood Studios and published by Virgin Interactive. Set in an alternate history of modern day, the game tells the story of a world war between two globalized factions: the Global Defense Initiative of the United Nations and a cult-like militant organization called the Brotherhood of Nod, led by the mysterious Kane. The groups compete for control of Tiberium, a mysterious substance that slowly spreads across the world. Westwood first conceived Command & Conquer during the final stages of the development of Dune II, and it expands on ideas first explored in that title. Inspired by the events of the era, particularly the Gulf War, the team gave the game a modern warfare setting. The game contains live-action full motion video cutscenes, which star Westwood employees and a single professional actor, Joseph D. Kucan, who plays Kane. Command & Conquer was a commercial and critical success, selling over three million copies and winning numerous awards. It has been cited as the title that defined and popularized the real-time strategy genre. The game was the first in the Command & Conquer series, which sold 30 million copies by 2009.[2] To mark the 12th anniversary of the franchise, Electronic Arts, the current publisher and owner of the series, released the game for free in 2007. Command & Conquer requires the player to construct a base and to gather resources in order to fund the production of buildings, technologies, and combat units to attack and conquer an opponent's base.[4] The game contains two playable factions: the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the Brotherhood of Nod. GDI units are sturdy and powerful, but expensive. Meanwhile, Nod armies are made up of a mix of cheap and numerous units, mixed in with unusual units such as rocket bikes and stealth tanks. As a result, GDI focuses on large-scale strategic attacks, while Nod creates bigger armies and uses unconventional tactics.[5] There are roughly fifty units and structures in total.[6][7][8] Tiberium, the game's sole resource, is gathered by harvester units that carry it to a refinery structure for processing.[4][9] When the player constructs buildings, additional units and structures become available for purchase.[4][5] Command & Conquer features two single-player campaigns, one each for the GDI and Nod factions.[5] The objective of most campaign missions is to destroy or take control of enemy buildings.[4] The missions begin with live-action full motion video (FMV) cutscenes.[6] The original DOS release features multiplayer with up to four players, a rarity at the time.[10] Multiplayer over an Internet connection was added in Command & Conquer Gold, which also features SVGA visuals.[11] The game's Sega Saturn and PlayStation ports lack multiplayer support,[12] but the latter release includes the fifteen single-player missions from The Covert Operations expansion pack.[13] The Nintendo 64 version features updated graphics, with 3D models and environments.[14][15] The FMV cutscenes were removed and replaced with static images, accompanied by voice acting and sound effects.[15] While the Nintendo 64 version includes four new "Special Ops" missions, it lacks multiplayer support.
