Sinclair_K and Pedro noticed that the Wing Commander Movie has been added to IGN's Direct2Drive digital content delivery service. Not only that, but Wing Commander is currently the second most popular download in the service's movie section! D2D is a new site that offers a wide range of games, tv shows, movies and more. Even brand new games like Star Trek Legacy and Splinter Cell DA are available. The version of WC available there seems to be the same one released for Amazon Unboxed a couple months ago. It'll be interesting to see where and how the franchise pops up next. Companies are definitely taking notice and learning there's still a big market for Wing Commander.

RPS Highlights Origin Fandom
Rock Paper Shotgun has run a neat article on longtime Origin collector Joe Garrity. There's a really interesting Q&A that delves into how Joe got started many years ago buying up spare copies of Ultima games and meeting with their creators. It also highlights some of the good work that fans have done to preserve historic material, such as our 2008 trip to archive Origin source documents at Mythic or the assistance Wingnuts gave Raylight to develop Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance.
