    I won WC4 on Nightmare difficulty

    The Bearcat was a truly superb fighter. The mission series where you go with Hawk's advice and raid Confed/Black Lance factories was my favorite in this game and IIRC, that's where you pick up the Bearcat fighters. I chose the other branch (support a rebellion, I think?) my first time through...

    Merry Christmas!!!

    Hooray!!! Possibly the best news I've had all day! It's not been a very noteworthy news day though other than my stocks are behaving bearishly: so it's nice to end the day on a positive note.

    I won WC4 on Nightmare difficulty

    Glad I could help! The Wing Commander IV missions where you have to fly the Hellcat early on against the Razors and Banshees was probably more difficult than the later missions were where you could pick a fast ship or the Dragon. Speed is life in WC4. So I guess once you get past the missions...

    Original Wing Commander Artist Here.

    I know this is a few years old, but this is VERY cool! Very creative idea of having Hobbes get a yarn ball for Christmas. That's fighter pilot humor: to tease a fellow pilot like that. Few things could get you in more of a Christmas mood than a Kilrathi opening a Christmas present.

    I won WC4 on Nightmare difficulty

    Wow, great job! I wouldn't even want to try to tackle it with a mouse. I remember spending a lot of time trying to help people beat this game on nightmare and posted tips for the series here: https://www.wcnews.com/guides/wc4hellespont.shtml. Beating Wing Commander IV on nightmare level is in my...

    Selling Wing Commanders 3 & 4 for Mac and Prophecy and Prophecy Gold for PC

    Hey guys, wow, great to hear that! I still have fond feelings for this site and the people on it and I still check it out from time to time even though I haven't posted in a while. I started as a lurker back in 2003 or so, and for the past few years I'm a lurker again. Mostly family life has...

    Selling Wing Commanders 3 & 4 for Mac and Prophecy and Prophecy Gold for PC

    Hello Everyone, We're out of storage space in our house and it doesn't make sense for me to hold onto these games when I no longer have a computer that plays them. I put a lot of my time into these as you can tell from my Wing Commander Standoff kill scores :). It's with some reluctance...

    WC4 Mod For Homeworld 2 In The Works (June 5, 2006)

    This looks really impressive! I'd dreamed of playing the Kilrathi against Confed when playing the Homeworld 2 mod years ago. Does your Mod require any game other than Homeworld 2? I saw it says "Homeworld Remastered" and it's generally called a Homeworld mod and not a Homeworld 2 mod, so I...

    New Poll Focuses on Iconic Briefings (April 16, 2011)

    Good poll question. I'm someone who started with WC3 in High School, WC4 as an adult, followed by WC1, and yet I chose Halcyon. I liked that it was business and felt military. It wasn't overly emotional or sappy, just to the point with only occassional jokes. I could imagine that was...

    Wing Commander World War 2 Ship Names..

    Yes, that was a very handy list, thanks for posting it Loaf. I was glad to see the Eagle on there, which I had also already modeled and didn't realize was a Wing Commander ship name. I appreciate the ones you listed Dundradal since there's a few that I didn't realize were also WW2 ship names...

    I've read the book, but had forgotten the names of those carriers. Glad I posted.
