    I especially liked the massive lag with the nuke, reminded me of how laggy the command and conquer games were on my old PC

    Would be enjoyable if I could reconfigure those default keys. I've never been able to use WASD well.

    QAOP ftw.

    EDIT - Not working for me as the browser in work is too old. My office is still on XP (stupid government) and only upgraded to IE8 a few months ago, still hasn't rolled out to everyone in the department. Still using Office 2003 as well! They're planning to roll out Win7 over the next year, I'm getting made redundant at the end of the month though so won't be around to see it. Glad I'm going to be missing out on that mess!
