BoMB – Band of Maniacal Brothers

Finally! Halo 3 has been added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC!

Almost thirteen years after I originally experienced this wonderful game (in the far simpler days of my youth), I am now finally able to have this experience again. Though the differences between Halo 3’s original Xbox 360 version and this new PC version on Steam don’t hold a candle to the magnitude of the changes made to Halo 2: Anniversary, I quite frankly don’t care.

I can remember countless hours spent playing this game; the multiple playthroughs of the campaign on Legendary difficulty, first solo, then co-op with my best friend, and the zillions of multiplayer matches trying to get the best scores above all my online friends. There were so many maps! The ones that shipped with the game, then the Heroic Map Pack, Legendary Map Pack, Mythic Map Pack, Mythic Map Pack II, and of course we played in the Forge and made some really great creations, and watched it all back in bullet-time in the Theater.

What a great game. One of the best games of all time. Maybe THE best.

I’ve missed you, old friend.

A collector of classic games and rare items who goes by the nickname Siberian GRemlin obtained a very early build of Red Alert through a contact of his. The real source of this discovery is unknown; it is quite possible this was an early QA or Playtest build for an event like E3 from 1996.

Five C&C enthusiasts (CCHyper, Nyerguds, Tore, TaxOwlBear and Chad1233) decided to band together and obtain a real treasure in C&C history and share it with the whole C&C community; they decided this was something the community really needed to experience and explore, so they contacted Siberian GRemlin, and came to a deal, so they could share this treasure!

WOW.

EA (booo, hissss) has finally done something right, and is bringing members of the original Command & Conquer team back together to remaster the original Command & Conquer game (a.k.a. C&C 1995 or Tiberian Dawn) as well as C&C: Red Alert and C&C 2: Tiberian Sun!!!

They got the rights to the original source code, they got back a number of the original designers and programmers (now working at Petroglyph Games), and they even got back Frank Klepacki to do the music! The one constant throughout the entire series, Joe Kucan (the actor for Kane), has also confirmed his involvement!

This is epic news. EPIC, I SAY.

FlameHeart and NeMustang faced down in this gargantuan Direct Strike 1v1 battle for the record books. Instead of just hundreds of thousands, these scores hit the millions for mineral value killed and lost.

Of note is that this match was the third of three 1v1 matches (one for each race, in mirror match-ups of Zerg-vs-Zerg, Protoss-vs-Protoss, and finally, Terran-vs-Terran), in which FlameHeart came out victorious each time, crowning himself as the best Direct Strike player of the Band of Maniacal Brothers. Huzzah!
