Anybody here ever play the Command & Conquer games? I played one of them, and that experience, along with the time spent playing the original Warcraft game, convinced me that I really disliked the Real Time Strategy genre. One thing that C&C was really well known for, though, is the music. One track in particular, the theme song to C&C: Red Alert, is still famous today: Hell March.
It appears to be quite the thing to make military hype videos using the track, ranging from the deadly serious:
...to the not so serious:
...to the flat-out hilarious:
So this afternoon, whilst in the middle of a particularly uncomfortable claim, the original Hell March began playing in my ears. And I had one of my creative visions. It wasn't nearly as complete as the one that drove me to create "...Angel.", but I'll be darned if it didn't hit me just as hard. I immediately began to grin as I thought about it, and after a minute or two I began to laugh as quietly as I could. It became harder and harder to not just begin guffawing, and tears began rolling down my cheeks from the amount of jocularity involved.
So what was the great idea? Something a little like this. Except more.
In tears, I was. Even now, it makes me giggle. A lot. I want this.

OT: This book on the battle of Midway came up in my Amazon recommendations today. Are you familiar with it, and does it look worthwhile?

If you're looking for a good basic overview of the Battle, though, you can do a lot worse.

Identical basic format to C&C, deploy your construction building, harvest stuff, build units, crush enemies. Different stories, etc, but I enjoyed the Dune series a little more than the various C&C ones.

Never knew there were sequels.
