Even if all servers work, it won't be too long without new updates with game... did anyone even tried to do something with source code at all? I've seen enough of hidden stuff in-game, game could be more popular if game is developed again...

I just subscribed to Introversion's youtube channel. I was exactly the 1000th subscriber.

EDIT: And I'm very sorry the tech demo didn't include systems like the elevator and the stairs.

I joined a random Defcon server, six player game with just a few people who were waiting for more. I was immediately kicked.

I'm glad I still have that effect on people.

Also, visited the Defcon forum for the first time in ages.... yeah...

I've never been there... And from the sounds of it that's a good thing.

They were....special. Good times, bad times. Lots of people who used to be there that I miss, actually :(

I feel kind of privileged being there at the release of Defcon and watching it evolve. I remember the first time I saw a bomber swarm, playing as Asia with Radiant Caligula as USSR...a holy shit moment in video gaming if ever there was one.

My favourite strategy is suisilo, I believe Feud was one of the first to come up with this...genius and sure to annoy the hell out of USSR.
Playing diplomacy with nothing but subs is also great fun.

Despite being an average player I really enjoyed it, those rare games I did win all the sweeter.

I've got into DEFCON again now that friends IRL now own it (even though it took the price to drop to 0.25¢). That said, most of them have skipped the tutorial entirely, consistently nuke allied cities in Diplomacy, and haven't worked out that bombers are finite. That said, it's nice to be able to have 6-player diplomacy matches (had a nice one with GreenRock last night).

My favourite tactic...well, probably the shinyBonsai ;)

If I wasn't crap at the game, I'd load it up again.

What the hell, I've got some free time tonight - maybe I'll fire it up...

6player, don't place any units other than subs, declare yourself neutral and peace loving (with a nuclear deterrent) then just see what happens...I think I won once, but usually you get obliterated by the rest who think you are up to no good...I tended to wait and see who nuked me first and then sent my "deterrent" subs after them.
