From the Mobile Infantry to the Mobile Base - A Study in Battlefield Mobility

2 posts in this topic

Cypher, one of our oldest friends on the community, was kind enough to send in this detailed article he wrote, its titled From the Mobile Infantry to the Mobile Base – A Study in Battlefield Mobility. Basically it takes a look at the how the idea of idea of a "mobile base" evolved and came to be. Here's a small sample....

While GDI made do with basic improvements to existing designs leading up to TW-II, it was the Brotherhood of Nod that made significant steps in the same doctrinal direction. Prior and during the first Tiberium War, Nod had neither the resources nor cohesion of ranks to mimic GDI’s strategies and logistical self sustainment. Instead, already relying on local fervour of the populace for infantry volunteers, with religious indoctrination in local temples – Hands of Nod – in lieu of training, Nod solved the issues of armour simply by flying in hardware as needed – with Tiberium reforming the global economy, Nod was not strapped for cash to buy the needed hardware.

 

Much as with GDI, it was circumstances that forced the Brotherhood down the same shift in thought. Leading up to TW-II, the Brotherhood of Nod slowly gained recognition and political support around the globe. Becoming a nation state entity it seemed that permanent bases of operation were the call of the hour.

      Over a month ago, the team at GVMERS, who had previously covered the fate of the cancelled FPS Tiberium, created a video on the entire C&C franchise. What you are looking at above is the corrected, definitive version - certain facts about things that happened behind the scenes in Westwood Studios, EA Pacific, EA Los Angeles and Victory Games have been proofread, and each game is now presented in higher detail, in order to better describe what made Command & Conquer what it is, in both its good and bad times. The video is now 10 minutes longer in total, so be sure to check it out!

      Back in February, GVMERS posted a video that looked at what happened to the cancelled Tiberium FPS. Today, they have new Command & Conquer video that dives into the entire franchise. The Command & Conquer franchise helped shape the identity of RTS games during the 1990's and would influence the designs of countless similar strategy titles in later years. Even though the franchise ended with a whimper instead of a bang, it managed to create an indelible impact on the history of videogames. Join the team from GVMERS as they take a look at the rise and fall of Command & Conquer.
