Throwback Thursday
Throwback Thursday for 16th February

2 posts in this topic

Those of you who follow our Throwback Thursdays know how many actors we've featured. How about some fake actors this time? In the second Allied mission in C&C Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge, called "Hollywood and Vain", three Hollywood action heroes join the Allied fight against Yuri's army - Flint Westwood, Sammy Stallion, and Arnnie Frankenfurter. As they are parodies of Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone, and Arnold Schwarzenegger respectively, their unit quotes are comprised almost entirely of references to their movies. Sadly, patch 1.001 removes their unique quotes and names, and has them all sound like regular GIs, while being renamed to Cowboy, Bodybuilder, and Hero respectively.

      In this week's Throwback Thursday feature, we look back at one of the Transformers-inspired units from Red Alert 3 - the Mecha/Jet Tengu. In its default state, the Mecha Tengu is a hovering pilot-assisted robot primarily used as an anti-infantry assault unit which can easily be massed. When the skies are not clear, it can turn into a Jet Tengu, a fast anti-aircraft fighter, in a speedy and spectacular transformation sequence. Unlike its Allied and Soviet counterparts, the Jet Tengu does not need to return to an airfield to reload, though it is not as effective as the other two.

      In our Throwback Thursday feature, we've covered several iconic units from the Command & Conquer franchise. But, what such list would be complete without the original ORCA Assault Craft, GDI's signature aircraft from the original Command & Conquer? Introduced in the ninth mission "Field Test The ORCA" (in Trieste, Italy or Arad, Romania), this VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) craft was powerful and agile, and was seen in cutscenes easily dodging SAMs. Its core design was retained throughout the series, confirming its status as a series' icon.

      Our Throwback Thursday feature hits yet another milestone today - the 100th entry! This week, we remember the community summits from 2006 to 2013, when CNCNZ.com staff, among many other community leaders at the time, was invited to check out the then-upcoming C&C games, share their opinions and ideas directly with the developers, and ultimately have a good time with developers and other community members. There are still many pictures, videos and reports from these events on our Other Specials page, as well as the inactive but online Planet C&C.

      Our Throwback Thursday has first seen the light of day on 26th March 2015, just a little over two years ago! We've covered numerous things that we found memorable or otherwise interesting from the vast history of our beloved Command & Conquer franchise. This week's iteration can be seen as the continuation of our first feature (the original C&C 4 Nod Engineer "Worm Man" concept). Amid a horribly tight schedule and corporate circumstances that are well known, the art direction of Tiberian Twilight caused another set of both laughter and shock with the Nod Avatars with cannons that, according to some, resembled Crayola's crayons. The developers later changed the unit's appearance.

      In this week's Throwback Thursday, we continue with the "Ladies of C&C" series. Oxanna Kristos from C&C Tiberian Sun, played by Monika Schnarre, brought the "Nod blonde" trope to the Tiberium universe, which was started by Nadia Zelenkov from the first Red Alert. During Nod's trying times, Oxanna infiltrated Hassan's propaganda machine, seen in her involvement in the morbid "Today's Execution" live television show. However, she remained loyal to the Black Hand and Kane himself, rescuing Anton Slavik from his death sentence and joining him on the Montauk. She was as ruthless as she was seductive, showing contempt for the Forgotten, causing Jake McNeil to defect to Nod, and even killing her former TV colleague on air.
