I thought I’d change up my every-once-in-a-blue-moon-updated series ever so slightly and offer some sweet remixes of video game music that “proper” videogame geeks ought to recall with fondness. Here goes…!

Metaphorically run, do not walk, over to the official Command & Conquer site, where EA is now offering free downloads of the original Command & Conquer.
Free games, no strings attached, and great ones, to boot, are a chance that should never be passed up.
Now if only they’d release Red Alert for free too…
For dessert, we have a lovely selection of Geeky Wedding Cakes. (I particularly like the Homestar Runner one, personally. Seriously.)
If I may be of any further assistance to you this evening, please don’t hesitate to call me back over to your table. Enjoy!
Let me be explicitly clear: do not go near, do no load, do not even think about Momentum Missile Mayhem if you in any way, shape or form value your productivity. A Flash-based game involving bouncing projectiles, each with weight, speed, etc. used to protect your end of the “field” from wave after wave of enemy tanks, each of which can be turned into projectiles in their own right (should you hit them correctly) adds up to hours worth of fun.
Oh, and lost productivity. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
