Three Seconds of Arena Footage Update ID

As we update, Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference is still going on... but Jetlag has already grabbed the three seconds of Wing Commander Arena footage included in their Live Arcade montage for us! The future looks very bright for XBLA, with upcoming games including everything from chess and checkers to robot fighting games... and, of course, Wing Commander! If you're desperate for a hit of Arena, however brief, check it out!
  • Video - E3 XBLA Montage Clip (2MB AVI)

Edit: AD reports that the footage is just a brief clip from an earlier trailer (available here). I guess it's still cool to see Arena on national TV, though!

Daedalus Station Gets Major Facelift

The Maslas Brothers have kicked off their big 2018 push with a huge revamp to Daedalus Station, the home base of Wing Commander Flat Universe.

Check Out Kilrathi Saga's Swag

Longtime Wingnut Joshua Dworkin has put together a pretty neat unboxing video. Since this trend came along relatively recently, it's cool to see these done for classic Wing Commanders, and I don't think we've posted a Kilrathi Saga version before. Completionists will be happy to see that he's kept his unrelated reference cards and advertisements, and we get good glimpses at the awesome discs, beefy manual and super cool 2673/1997/2003/2014/2025 calendar.

Stealth Carrier Sneaks Into The News

DefianceIndustries has put together a very sleek stealth carrier that belongs to the Black Lance. He's dubbed it the Typhon, and it's strongly inspired by the Evansville class transport depicted in Wing Commander 4. The ship has been modeled in really exotic detail with nifty hexagonal hull patterns and interior items on the flight deck. (2018-02-12)
