Blast From the Past, Part 7 Update ID

After taking the month of April off, we have a few more cool older magazine articles on Wing Commander. This one is quite a gem. The December 1995 Computer Gaming World cover story asks, "Wing Commander IV: Is it worth $12 million?" You don't have to answer that. In addition to the large spread in the middle of the mag, snippets in the beginning and end are Wing Commander related as well. There's even an Origin ad on the back cover. Don't see those too often anymore.

No series to date has managed to capture such a Hollywood feel and successfully combine it with such quality action. From moment one, Wing Commander 3 wowed us (and tons of other gamers) with its cinematic style. We expect Wing Commander 4 to do the same... We're also excited by the enhanced game engine, which will allow you more freedom in the heat of battle and give your wingmen more responsibility. $99.95 Origin

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.
