An Ode to Total Annihilation

Posted: June 22nd, 2004 | Author: | Filed under: Web Services | Comments Off

I caught a great story on Kuro5hin this morning about Total Anihilation.  The game was way ahead of its time and over the years I have lost countless time to it.  A year or two ago Roger and I dusted TA off for a quick game.  Many hours later I decided that I was getting too old to stay up all night and I headed home to bed.

The evening reminded me of the days when TA first came out.  We would all discuss strategy at work during the day and try to kick each others butts at night.  Sometimes a Krogoth would be sent in to cause damage, other times it would be so many airborne units that the computer slowed to a crawl.  There was always something different to try.

Whenever someone mentions TA, a little geeky tear forms in the corner of my eye.  Thank you for all the years of entertainment.
