    Love Your Dad (June 20, 2021)

    Ha, I never saw that missing child photo! Always great to learn something new about our beloved franchise.

    What do you HATE (or at least dislike) in each Wing Commander game?

    WC1: Nothing. Not even the odd asteroid popping in. SM: when you have to escort the two Draymans (Draymen?) ans they keep bumping into each other. SM2: nothing. WC2: No promotions. Starting the trend of making Kilrathi fighters just inferior. SO1: Not so memorable story and so interesting bonus...

    Wing Commander 3 as Seen From the 21st Century (February 22, 2021)

    I'm showing my age probably too but I really dislike these tutorials. I wan't a manual in which I can look up what I need whenever the situation arises - and not have it explained to me via textboxes in the game at certain times.

    WC2 Bonus Chapter Released from 'Moongate' History Book (February 25, 2021)

    Hey, great read in the chapter and this thead! It's very cool to read such indepth stories about WC2. It really shows again what a great game it is. So many so fond memories. I'm getting all nostalgic - they don't make gams like that anymore ;-). Edit: And I agree with Wedge: for me, the...

    Concept Meets Reality in WC4 Match Up (November 9, 2020)

    YES! WC2's Rapier is the prettiest and coolest human fighter in all of the WC franchise! I always liked the WC4 Banshee and after the (to me) incredibly boring and off-putting confed cap ship (and fighter) designs of WC3, even the Intrepid looked interesting to me. I definately prefer the end...

    Conclusion and Thanks (October 11, 2020)

    My most sincere congratulations to the happy parents and a warm welcome to Georgianna! With the new corona virus around being pregnant and giving birth are even more of a challenge. Happy birthday all!

    I hope everything works out and everybody will be in good health and spirit for when the party is on.

    Check Out the Other Wing Commander Collectible Cards (July 31, 2020)

    Thanks for this article because I am one of those fans that still hasn't taken the figurines out of their blisters (except two doubles I have). Now I know I haven't missed too much (because I read the Handbook). Ooh, I'd like to see some Kilrathi cockpit scenes (not necessarily with the...

    The return of MicroProse!

    Oh wow, Grand Prix 2 and BotF were also games of mine. Don't have too much memories about Grand Prix 2 but I really liked BotF!

    The return of MicroProse!

    Ha, completely forgot about XCom Interceptor. I enjoyed it probably more than it deserved. I agree that it had great potential.

    [2020-02] Some novel character portraits

    I think Blair's face is extremely well done. I also like your Kilrathi test pilot he looks...likeable.

    Instructions Available for Kilrathi Lego Fighters (June 17, 2020)

    Awesome, I always loved the Drakhri's design. Both models look really great.

    The return of MicroProse!

    Lots of memories! Silent Service, Gunship were played around the clock in our house. My favourite was F-19 Stealth Fighter. That fat glossy manual, it was awesome. I remember climbing as high as possible and watching the sky turn darker...

    Snug as a Bug in a Rug (June 13, 2020)

    While it certainly has a completely different feeling than the other options, my truthful answer to the question is the Freij MK II. The other options sure gave the impression of being flying fortresses but were so slow and sluggish relative to the enemy opposition that almost always the enemy...

    Artist Profile: Glen Johnson (June 8, 2020)

    Well then, thank you very much Mr. Johnson! Your art was and still is a very important part in my life!

    Meet the WC2 Characters... as of 1990! (April 15, 2020)

    Wow, that's very interesting stuff. Partially sounds much more involved than what we got in WC2 at the end (which was still good of course). I like the ideas very much. Also - ignoring for a moment that Hobbes was only a construct -, I am torn whether I like the idea better that the Kilrathi...

    How does the computer control wingmen?

    Hmm, interesting. But I'm rather sure that I got killed very often in WC2 by my wingmen shooting through me, especially Hobbes. Maybe his true personality shown through...

    Meet Denis Loubet (April 4, 2020)

    Pretty cool video indeed! And it's the first time I realized that Savage Empire was an Ultima game! I never played it (my brotherdid) but I remember the box art quite well.
