    Wing Commander III. Major Success, or Dramatic Fail?

    I thought that WC3 was great. Very immersive and entertaining cut scenes. The ability to walk around the ship, talk to people, influence their morale, and choose your own flight loadout was great. It continued to have a great story and even branching paths. Also, it had a porn star. The only...

    What moments stand out most?

    Sooooooo many good moments its hard to choose just one. So I'll go by individual games. WC1: The whole game was amazing from a design perspective, it really drew you into the game. The briefings felt directed at you, the debriefings added weight to your actions, the dogfighting with aces felt...

    Review of the Best Game of the Year (November 5, 2009)

    This makes me realize just how far we've come. I think my cellphone could easily handle this game (although I wouldn't want to use the cell keypad to play). Once you needed a $2,000 PC to play it. Now you just need some time setting up Dosbox. The sad thing is that, even after 18 years...

    XBLA Titles For Sale At Amazon (April 11, 2009)

    I'm still holding out hope for a PC port of Arena. I want to play Arena, but I don't want to spend the cash on an X-box 360.

    WC1: SM: Jotunheim 3

    Ah....I remember that mission against the Gwenhyvar. Here's what I always do (with varying degrees of success.) Remember that you want the fighters and destroyer both down. So hit your afterburners and do some fancy flying very close to the Gwenhyvar. If you burn far past it then come back...

    Making the Game: Alien Sociology (February 7, 2009)

    I'm starting to wonder if these "leaked" documents are really just a way to get some early hype up for a new WC game. Anyway, this is very interesting especially since we didn't get very much info on the Nephlim's society. Its especially notable that the bugs were actually pawns of a larger...

    Tunes for Confederation minstrells

    Nice Job. Although though a quick read it dose seem to not fit the source melody in places (could just be that I read it fast though). Now if we could only get a recording of Malcolm McDowell singing this...

    A Team of Mulvericks (December 17, 2008)

    There is also a Human named Wing Commander Ichman (Iceman). In the Alterac Valley Battleground if you free your sides Wing Commmander they will perform a bombing run against the enemy if your side turns in 30 Frostwolf Commander's Medals (Ichman)/Stormpike Commander's Flesh (Mulverick)...

    Star*Soldier Gloss: Page 35 (September 16, 2008)

    Oh. I see its just a brute force type thing. I.e. One side makes a sharper sword the other then makes a stronger shield, causing the first side to make their sword sharper, leading the second to strengthen their shield, and on and on and on... Edit: I was thinking that there was some special...

    Star*Soldier Gloss: Page 35 (September 16, 2008)

    *sniff* feels so good to know I'm not alone... Seriously I think she was the first fixer in the game that didn't feel like she was going to try to stick something sharp in Brownhair's back or ask him to do something either: a) Insanely dangerous, 2) Insanely illegal, or 3) both. Plus she...

    Thrakhath and Hobbes

    Not so much when you consider that the pilots on the Victory didn't want to fly with him. He was probably starting to feel alienated and was yearning for some kind of acceptance. Killing things that looked like him, and where he was from, probably just got a lot harder for him. However when...

    Thrakhath and Hobbes

    I've always taken this to mean that Hobbes was starting to become uncomfortable with killing his own kind. He didn't want the empire to win, but he started to be more wary about shooting down other Kilrathi. I'm going to take a shot at retconing this: Hobbes was born on Kilrah, but when...

    Why we should vote a third party

    Oh, I never meant to suggest that judges were political at all, but there initial appointments are. If it wasn't for the congressional confirmation process there would be all sorts of crazy extreme judges. Since the Senate has to confirm judicial appointments the administration can't just...

    Why we should vote a third party

    It is true that the courts are a separate branch of government and the judges are appoint for life or until they retire. However, federal judges are appointed by the administration, and the current administration will appoint people to roles who seem to agree with the administrations line. On...

    Why we should vote a third party

    Yeah in some countries PR works best and some SMP (Single Member Plurality) works best. They can both work and its really just a matter of preference. I find that the biggest weakness to PR is that it makes it hard to appeal issues to your representative, because with PR there is also a...

    Why we should vote a third party

    That's because individual theological belief is irrelevant to governing. I find that whenever any radical theist or radical atheist enters the political stage it always ends badly. Both extreme sides of the coin are incredibly annoying pieces of degenerate shit that the rest of us have to...
