Dundradal is leading a massive play-through of the entire Wing Commander series via the CIC Forums. Each week he'll be pacing out chunks of Wing Commander games and inviting fans to share their experiences online. The fun starts Sunday, January 27, with Wing Commander 1. Players should try to run through the first three systems - some combination of Enyo, McAuliffe, Gimle, Gateway and Cheng-du and discuss their experiences at Crius.net. As you progress through each game, head over to this thread, and post your mission results, comments and any questions that arise. Additional forum threads for individual games and specific event details will be announced as the replay continues. Have fun!
With all the new threads popping up, it got my mind going. We are discussing and analyzing all aspects of WC - why not refresh all of our memories?
What I'm proposing is that we have a weekly replay. We'll start with WC1 and play each week, then log onto the CZ to discuss those missions. Depending on what people think we could also extend it to a two week period or whatever works. I figure this way we could replay the main games in several months' time and all enjoy playing them in unison by sharing war stories and tactics.
Week 1 will cover 3 systems. What systems those are after Enyo are up to you. The direct winning path is Enyo, McAuliffe, Gimle. The direct losing path is Enyo, Gateway, Cheng-du. There are also multiple other paths which I won't outline here for brevity but you can check them out in the CIC Game Guides.
After you've completed three systems, come back here and make your posts. The format for the posts are completely left up to the individual, so feel free to express your experience in any way you like. I'm curious to see what you guys can cook up, as I'm still thinking about how I want to do my own.
So get your copies of Wing Commander, Kilrathi Saga or whatever format you have WC1 in. Make sure it's installed and ready to rock tomorrow!
This is the avatar concept artwork for a Terran pilot - note the Wing Commander III style uniform! They really must have done a lot of research before putting digital pen to screen on this project.
