That being said, in the past 25 years there probably hasn't been another developer that has made quite the same impact on the industry that Blizzard has, from creating games on the Super Nintendo through to crafting the online phenomenon known as World of Warcraft.

Created as a proof of concept for playing an RTS using the room-scale functionality of the HTC Vive, this recreation of Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 in Unreal Engine 4 more than impresses. It takes a classic '90s RTS and re-imagines it with technology that was first promised around the time that the original game came out. Created by Ádám Horváth, the demo showcases the usual building of stuff, but with the added awesome of touch controls and a map where you're a god that's in control of just about everything.

Or perfect for those they'd like to introduce to the wonders of 8-bit Mario. So it's a good thing that more stock is expected early December.
