Happy Birthday C&C!

On August 31st 1995, Command & Conquer was born. The first game, which was named "Command & Conquer" and nicknamed "Tiberian Dawn", was released this day 13 years ago. I was about six when the game was released, and after playing the demo for many hours, it immediately made me fall in love with the series.

Although it started off as an RTS, our fellow game Command & Conquer: Renegade was the first C&C FPS to be released, which was based on the original Tiberian Dawn units and buildings, and the classic GDI and Nod.

C&C is one of the longest living game series in gaming history, with 7 games so far and 2 more in the upcoming year.

To celebrate the Anniversary of C&C, EA has released Red Alert 1 as freeware on their website. http://www.commandandconquer.com

And expect to see a Renegade X update very soon!

Of course it's just a PR stunt for Red Alert 3 (who in their right mind celebrates a 13th anniversary?) like with releasing TD for free was for TW and they didn't include the expansion packs just like they didn't with TD.

But hey, free is free and some people have never played RA1 or lost their discs so it's good for them.
