    Strategically Select the Sector's Ships (December 3, 2013)

    The gatling action was part of my enjoyment of the Phantom. If I'm remembering correctly, it worked quite well in multiplayer because of the shaking effect when you get hit. Could be quite unnerving to some pilots until they learned to ignore it.

    Strategically Select the Sector's Ships (December 3, 2013)

    You won't get any from me, I loved the Phantom. Our multiplayer matches never seemed to get much out of the tracking missiles, they either got decoyed or the opponent went crazy dodging them and become nigh-impossible to hit with guns in the follow-up. A well-timed point blank DF at the end of...

    Hellcat cockpit in the WC2 style

    So, a year or two until someone posts here saying that the Nephilim had been planned since WC2 and posts those screenshots as proof? I have to say that the Manta does look quite good in the WC2 engine.

    Gemini's Famous Foursome on the Ballot (November 5, 2012)

    My vote's for the Galaxy, though I usually switch to the Centurion for the story missions. The giant profile just made it a little too fragile for some fights. Ironically, I usually survived better in the Tarsus because it's quite narrow to the front. Still, I really did enjoy tooling around as...

    Is WC Kilrathi Saga still desirable?

    I suppose it depends on who's told them, there's probably all sorts of crazy complicated rights related to those packs and I don't want to see GOG getting in trouble because they forgot to cross a T somewhere.

    Wing Commander Armada - Something Of A Halfway House (July 16, 2012)

    What a waste of a torpedo, he could have just sneezed in the general direction of the transport to much the same effect.

    Is WC Kilrathi Saga still desirable?

    It's also handy for the expansion packs. I managed to get Righteous Fire from my Privateer CD running on the GOG version but I don't even know where my non-KS copies of WC1 & 2 expansion packs are.

    List of planets 'killed' universally.

    It makes sense in that they want GenSelect to spread, kill people and then go away. If it won't live in unacceptable hosts, then there's much less of a chance that sometime down the track it decides that Seether's genes are suddenly quite tasty and wipes out the "pure".

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    There were a few instances of me thinking "Am I glad they scripted that" during the game, particularly revolving around the CapShip missiles.

    List of planets 'killed' universally.

    Wasn't Hell Hole still being used during False Colours?

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    I will say one positive thing about the missiles in Saga, they do increase the reward factor for the Excalibur a heap. I went from Q's reaction to missiles to deliberately taking the time to shoot down missiles and torpedoes because it suddenly became fun to do.

    Wing Commander III Doesn't Give A F... (June 25, 2012)

    You know, I think the first time I heard swear words in a computer game was Stingray's "Shit!" in WC2.

    Traitors Tried in the Court of Public Opinion (June 9, 2012)

    It's a tough one. Jamison seems to be a likely suspect but would Confed have really won the war without the Armistice or would they have just hit a brick wall around Kilrah as the Kilrathi supply lines shortened? Jukaga's actions, on the other hand, seem to have come closer to costing the...

    Corvettes: Paradigm vs Venture?

    Ultimately, they're the same explanation. Calvin & Hobbes the comic characters are named after John Calvin & Thomas Hobbes the philosophers, anyway.

    Corvettes: Paradigm vs Venture?

    I'm not saying that the Paradigm has to be smaller than the Gilgamesh, just that the turrets on destroyers aren't going to necessarily be the same size. Like comparing the 5" turrets on a WW2 destroyer to the Bofors AA mounts. They're both turrets on destroyers but are of a vastly different...

    Corvettes: Paradigm vs Venture?

    Should the turrets be the same size, though? The Paradigm's armament is all fighter-scale weapons while the Gilgamesh carries capital-scale weapons.

    Hellcat-V Designation?

    It took us 31 years to go from the Thunderbolt (P-47) to the Thunderbolt II (A-10). By that progression, the year 2669 would be up to the Thunderbolt 24 :D
