Microsoft reveals launch details for Quantum Break on Xbox One and Windows 10

Gamers got their first look at Quantum Break almost three years ago, but it wasn't until mid-2014 that Xbox One owners got some idea of when to expect it, as Microsoft announced that the game was scheduled to arrive in 2015. But last year, the launch of the game - which was designated an 'Xbox One exclusive' - was pushed back to 2016. Today, though, Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment have final... Read more

A coder Aditya Ravi Shankar has recreated classic strategy game Command & Conquer entirely in HTML5, running on 69k of Javascript.

Aditya Ravi Shankar built the clone in an attempt to improve his coding skills. He set himself a month to rebuild the game in the browser, chopping through the original game's files to get sprites, sounds and specs exactly right.

"In hindsight, I might have wanted to take smaller steps and make a tower defense game instead of jumping directly into an RTS," says Shankar, in a post about the game's development on his blog. "Trying to do the whole thing in under a month all by myself wasn't the smartest idea."

Shankar's recreation of the game includes buildings, terrain, combat, tiberium harvesting and regrowth, and the ability to sell and repair buildings. It has fog of war, too, a pannable map, different cursors, tooltips, and drag selection for multiple units. For the time being, however, it's limited to just a few buildings and units, a very small map, and the occasional glitch -- a few of our tanks got stuck in the sea during testing. 



Shankar admits: "The project is far from complete and there is still some polishing up to do," but nonetheless it's an extraordinary achievement. It can be played here (it works best in Chrome or Firefox). If you're curious, you can check out the source code too, here.

The game’s developers say Android apps are pirated so frequently that charging for downloads has become almost pointless. And Android owners are, on average, less a... Read more
