That’s a lot of Command & Conquer – no Sole Survivor, though!


Video Game Ad of the Day: Dune 2000

Dune 2000 was a partial remake, partial reimagining of Westwood’s classic Dune II. It was an attempt by Westwood to modernise Dune II, by adding features like unit balance and full motion video cutscenes (starring John Rhys-Davies among others) to the formula, but it was not well received.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Command & Conquer

I always wanted an Obelisk of Light for the front garden.

Command & Conquer (retroactively subtitled Tiberian Dawn) was a runaway success for Westwood Studios in 1995. It built heavily on the framework the company developed for their first real-time strategy game, Dune II, but brought the conflict into a near-future global terrorism scenario. This ad is for the Saturn and PlayStation release of the game.
