    The orville

    I wasn't entirely happy with season 3, there were too many things that were simplified and happened too easily or predictably. It felt they were hurrying forward in storyline instead of exploring the established world. It's still all good, but maybe a step down from season 2.

    The orville

    I stand corrected, season 3 started in Finnish TV this week.

    The orville

    I saw seasons 1&2, but likely won't be able to see 3 anytime soon.

    Return to Monkey Island coming 2022

    I still haven't played MI4 or Tales. Nevertheless, one of my alltime favorite series, and I do mean top 5.

    WC1: eject while Claw explodes

    But the question is, when exactly does the game consider carrier lost. Is it at start or end of the destruction animation? (Also, when you eject, when does it count the mission to have ended? The moment you eject or at end of ejection animation? And could this mean that if you hit esc right...

    WC1: eject while Claw explodes

    In the second last mission, I was about to fail (either me or TC die), so I decided to eject - just take Golden Sun, I wasn't playing real seriously anyway (my annual christmas run). But just as I ejected, Tiger's Claw started exploding, I'm pretty sure it was dying. However as I had ejected...

    What happened to Blair?

    Ignoring various more or less canonical things, this is what I would've wanted for story of Prophecy sequels: The Nephilim were victims of a genocidal betrayal by Kilrathi - a peaceful scientific race that gave Kilrathi advanced knowledge, but failed to expect their brutal reaction. The few...

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

    WC1: after first couple playthroughs you'll 90% go same route unless you purposely lose (the 10% is winning Kurasawa) SM1/2: linear, so you can't fail anywhere (IMO that's one of WC's best ideas, that you can fail missions and the game/story continues) WC2: depressing story, punches just keep...

    Wing commander 3 control problem

    I never figured it out, is there any way to use tab (or other key?) afterburner when mouse is used? Because I really prefer mouse, have played all my PC WCs on mouse for last 20+ years (never did get myself a stick), but afterburner is a real annoyance in WC3. I can use the mouse afterburner...

    Dralthi mk2/Crossbow/Morningstar

    That however makes it even worse that in the other last mission (that comes if you lose that) you fly Sabre for no reason at all, which also makes the two somewhat similar. It would've been better if that one had Crossbow. Then again, there was the mission before these where you already had...

    Dralthi mk2/Crossbow/Morningstar

    As game design, what do you think about each of the ships added in the expansions? Having recently replayed all these parts got me thinking this aspect. Dralthi in itself was nice. It replaced the mud pig, being similar but slightly better and just different enough from all others to fly to be...

    Wing Commander Special Ops 1

    Hmm... I think I've somehow long ago misread this as meaning performance throughout SM1/SM2. I knew how WC1 works, but really thought it was different for Secret Missions.

    Wing Commander Special Ops 1

    I'm not sure but I believe SM1 works on some kind of continuous points system, that if you win the first difficult missions, you can fail more of the later ones or so. I feel SM2 is hardest in total, SM1 and SO1 just have some individual difficult missions.

    Wing Commander Special Ops 1

    SO1 is pretty much my favorite part of all WC, even though couple missions are hard and last one/two toughest of any I encounter on my normal WC 1+2+expansions playthrough. Best plot and dialogue at least, for gameplay I may slightly prefer the easier WC1.

    Privateer beatable with Galaxy?

    I don't think I've ever tried to beat Privateer with Galaxy or Orion. Instead I did try to play it through with Tarsus, but couldn't beat one of Lynn Murphy missions.

    WC3: what if you could win with Behemoth?

    Maybe the T-bomb would've been better, more realistic(?) and morally acceptable, if it had just created a planet-wide quake. Imagine that, a quake shaking all continents so that there's not a house standing anywhere on the planet. This would've killed at least half the population, maybe even...

    WC3: what if you could win with Behemoth?

    Thinking of game design and storytelling, I've wondered would it have been better if there was a path that Behemoth succeeds. So that you'd have Ending A (Behemoth), Ending B (T-bomb) and C/lose ending. (Or rather you'd have to have beside the main losing ending two variants, failing last...

    Internet Archive

    I tried WC1 for first mission and it's playable. The sound (tried Sound Blaster) isn't that good and it runs a bit slow maybe? (I'm used to my old PC running running WC1 on Dosbox too fast.)

    WC1 bug, ship on top of TC?

    In the last Kurasawa mission I got left behind Formidable (fighting the krants) and when I then autopiloted to Claw (first going to nav 1 that I'd missed), the Exeter was sitting apparently in same coordinates (and direction) as Tiger's Claw - the two ships clipping, depending what angle you...

    WC3 on Crazy

    I never learned to use slide and I've once played it on Nightmare.
