    Is Wing Commander on the SNES worth picking up?

    That is not true, Wing Commander on the SNES isn't known for being especially easy. (The big problem with the SNES version is that the controls are very clunky for anyone who is used to flying with a joystick on the PC.) One exception that he might be talking about, though: the SNES version of...

    Happy Birthday Armada! (September 22, 2019)

    Happy birthday to... WING COMMANDER ARMADA! Armada was released 25 years ago today. It was a spin-off project that added multiplayer, turn based strategy and a true 3D engine to the Wing Commander canon! And in a series full of incredible lore manuals, Armada had perhaps the greatest of...

    GOG Weekend Sale Knocks $35.94 Off WC Series (September 14, 2019)

    It's possible Electronic Arts never owned the Space Rogue rights. In the early days (through 1990) Origin worked somewhat differently: creators were independent contractors and the company provided funding, talent and publishing to them in exchange for a cut of the game's sales. It's probably...

    GOG Weekend Sale Knocks $35.94 Off WC Series (September 14, 2019)

    That's because these deals have to be arranged with the publisher and Space Rogue is owned by Night Dive instead of Electronic Arts.

    Wing Commander GAMEDAT - Between the Lines

    "Solid little bots." is probably "Solid little boats." "But, no, and never transfer ever to the wagons." is probably "But, no, I'd never transfer over to the wagons."

    All Wings Considered - Episode 23 - LIVE! (August 22, 2019)

    I'd say you're right! The 3DO version had a little more time to implement quality of life touches that the PC shipped without (like the news videos and the additional gumps in the gameflow screens.) That's partially because they had more time for development and partially because it's much...

    Wing Commander III on the 3DO

    They're fairly awkward, they never really mastered porting Wing Commander with a controller. But it does support the 3DO Flightstick Pro which is a great improvement.
