centaurianmudpig has kicked off a series of video walkthroughs for Wing Commander: The Secret Missions. Each mission in the game has been recorded in 'long play' format with complete commentary. Keeping the audio track in a documentary such as this from being overly repetitive is no easy task, but Mr. mud pig has made the voiceover consistently engaging. It's a fun complement to a great game! Five chapters are already up, and more will be released soon. Check out the complete playlist here, and let CMP know what you think at the CIC Forums. If you missed it earlier, he's already made a complete video review of the original Wing Commander here.
It's been a while since I did an LP with Wing Commander, but now I'm back! With audio commentary!! Now you get to listen to my marvellous voice as I hash my way through the Thor's Hammer campaign. I have 4 video's up at time of writing, with the 5th uploading as I type. The LP will be finished by the end of next week (N.B. All videos for the series are complete, I'm just pacing it out). Please give feedback, other than on my accent, of course! If there is enough interest I will go forth in to Secret Missions 2 Crusade, nah, J/K, will probably do it any way! Seriously though, I would like feedback to know what the WC community likes/want's! Oh and no annoying ads for these, yippee!
Mark Hamill To Receive Hollywood Star
Thanks in part to his recent success resuming the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, actor Mark Hamill will soon be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony is set for March 8, 2018 at 11:30 am. I'd encourage Wing Commander fans nearby to go check it out, but the crowd will likely be substantial. (2018-02-22)
Banshee Kicks Off Flat Universe's Border Worlds Faction
The first Border Worlds ship for Wing Commander Flat Universe has been announced! The Banshee now joins the battle alongside four Confed and four Kilrathi craft. It's designed to be particularly effective against slower bombers such as the Broadsword or Grikath. (2018-02-21)
New 3D Prints Highlight Gemini Sector Hotness
Sonnich Johannesen has shown off some large scale and beautifully detailed 3D prints from Wing Commander Privateer. The Centurion and (not pictured) Galaxy are from Astrofossil and the Tarsus model was designed by DJFX, who posted some gorgeous pics of his own a while back. The size of each of these is impressive, and Sonnich has posted some neat pictures of these ships coming together on the printer. (2018-02-20)
Paper Cruiser Returns Stronger & Better Armed
Adm_Maverick's Tallahassee papercraft cruiser is back again in a whole new way. This second major iteration improves on the first in a number of ways, including how the main hull fits together. It also has interior components that form the bow-mounted capship missile launcher. (2018-02-19)
Live Wing Commander Jazz Recording A Huge Success!
Origin composer George Oldziey has completed his live recording of Wing Commander jazz music. The event was conducted last week at George's studio in Austin, and pictures from the day make it look like they had a lot of fun! Initial results also sound fantastic, and we're anxious to hear how everything comes together in the finished album. (2018-02-18)
