RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
Tank Battle: East Front 1941 unfolds on the Russian Front during the German invasion of 1941. Players fight on the side of the Soviets or the Germans in three campaigns: the seven-mission “First Strike” (Soviets), the eight-mission “Blitzkrieg” (Germans), and the eight-mission “Desperate Defense” (Soviets). Battles occur on winter and summer terrain and challenge players to make use first of obsolete equipment, such as the Panzer I and T-26, and then more advanced units as the war escalates. Missions involve wiping out enemy forces, capturing key points, and protecting vital supply convoys.
