See gameplay ‘target’ footage of Spielberg’s canceled Project LMNO

It’s common practice for developers to create “target” footage of their games early in the development process in order to give their artists and designers something to shoot for.

EA accidentally announces Command & Conquer 4

EA’s UK PR team just tweeted an announcement that Command & Conquer 4 is now in development, though the linked press release doesn’t seem to exist yet.
