C&C Music Monday - Trenches


 

This week's selection for C&C Music Monday is "Trenches" from the Red Alert soundtrack, composed by the one and only Frank Klepacki. When you think of Red Alert you probably immediately associate it with Hell March, when in fact the Red Alert soundtrack features many other memorable tracks. I have always liked the how "Trenches" begins with a 2 minute tension filled build up to an awesome sounding finale. A new track will be posted next Monday.

Throwback Thursday for 28th April

Its another edition of Throwback Thursday. This week, we pay tribute to arguably the best and most useful unit in C&C games, The Engineer. And the focus is the Soviet Combat Engineer from Red Alert 3 in 2008. Of course the Engineer is present in every C&C game in one forum or another, but the Soviet Combat Engineer from Red Alert 3 is probably the best example from them all. Armed with the usual abilities expected from any Engineer, along with the extra abilities of digging bunkers to garrison infantry, a nifty inflatable dingy to traverse over water and even a pistol for some defence. In the hands of a skilled player an Engineer, or even many of them, can deal some extreme damage.

Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments.

C&C Music Monday - In Trouble


 

Today’s pick for C&C Music Monday is what I was originally going to feature this time last week before a quick last minute change. Its "In Trouble" from the original Command & Conquer soundtrack. An amazing catchy beat in this one. The video above is the soundtrack version, complete with the cool voice inserts such as "Ah its not good, it doesn't look good", "Perhaps you need another shot?" and the very strange "Let me clear my throat!". The in game version does not have them. A new track will be posted next Monday. Share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.

C&C Music Monday - Warfare


 

It took me all day to decide on this week's pick for C&C Music Monday, I settled on "Warfare" from the original Command & Conquer soundtrack. Sometimes this one is listed by it's alternate name, "Full Stop". Back in 1995/1996 when I first discovered Command & Conquer this was the track I always played each time I started a mission in the game. Being able to change the music any time you liked was one of the coolest features in the game. A new track will be posted next Monday.
