Real time strategy fans rejoice, one of the all time classic RTS games could be returning to the PC for your gaming pleasure.

Now with its 25th birthday fast approaching the PC gaming community is waiting with bated breath to see what EA has in store.

With the recent release of the Android version of the fantasy MMO both iOS and Android players can now battle it out in the same world, iOS battling Android, the strong battling the weak and all struggling to be King.

Tablet friendly RTS games are a new breed of evil time consuming amusement that will vaporize any spare time you may have. Think of them as Candy Crush Saga with a point.

Possibly the only thing standing between Google and a reputation as an evil empire is its often displayed quirky sense of humour. Most often seen in its daily doodle delights in the background of the search engine, they have many other humorous weapons at their disposal though.
The latest surprisingly hilarious hidden delight is Google’s Attack of the O’s in Zerg Rush, a brand new mini-game released by the Google machine. Be warned though, typing Zerg Rush into the search engine will release the O’s, once the O’s appear on screen they instantly begin to consume text.
Your mission if you choose to accept it is to triple click on each O before your entire search is devoured by the text hungry, ravenous O’s. Your hits and misses are recorded as the waves of Os wreak havoc on your search result. How long can you hold of the invading O’s, time to test your manual dexterity, your mastery over rodent at your right hand (or left).
Electronic Arts look to be embracing the Play4Free gaming model. After releasing Battlefield, Need for Speed and Warhammer variations, all play for free, now it is the turn of the all time classic Real Time Strategy game Command & Conquer, it’s back, it’s better than erver, and it’s free.
