    Wing Commander reviewer LGR

    One of my favorite review personalities on Youtube. I'm glad he finally got around to the Wing Commander series!

    Goofballs Battle for the Enigma Sector (April 24, 2017)

    Emulation would be the only way though that's not strictly legal. Regardless, I don't think there's any question that the ROM should be dumped for preservation's sake, if and when a copy is found (especially if it's saved to an EEPROM). Anyway thanks for all of the info and the update on the...

    Goofballs Battle for the Enigma Sector (April 24, 2017)

    I sat through the whole 11 hours of this when it was live and had a great afternoon of snacking and watching you guys play my favorite game of all time. I'm guessing you scrapped the plans for streaming the Special Ops packs? Anyway, looking forward to the Privateer storyline if you ever do it!

    Righteous Playthrough of Privateer and Expansion (September 22, 2016)

    I liked Righteous Fire a lot more than the base game story. I appreciated the original game for its open-ended Elite style play but as was already mentioned it gets pretty repetitive after a few hours. More story was a really welcome addition, though I really do wish they would have added more...

    Happy Birthday Wing Commander Academy! (September 21, 2016)

    I bought the DVDs last year but haven't gotten around to re-watching it. This is as good an excuse as any. There are of course moments in this show that are really cheesy Saturday Morning cartoon style stuff but not many, and there are several episodes with incredibly dark and mature themes...

    SF Debris reviews WC3

    This made my day, I love SF Debris. I hope he does WC4 next.

    couple quick questions about WC2

    I was actually going to mention that but I left it out because I didn't want to sound like I was ragging on the game too much. It is really awkward that Tolwyn hates your guts again. There are ways of justifying it but it's still such a sharp turn for the character for no apparent reason.

    couple quick questions about WC2

    2 and 4 have always been my favorites and it mostly has to do with the storytelling and particularly the character development which was at its peak in these two games. I can kind of understand what the RPS review was getting at with Wing Commander 3, there's an oppressive pessimism throughout...

    Art Display Spans Kilrathi Saga Years (September 15, 2016)

    I remember these from a few years ago when I randomly decided to search Deviant-Art for Wing Commander stuff. I loved them so much I saved them to my hard drive.

    New Lego Wing Commander Models (Dralthi and Hornet)!!!

    I've got to say I'm not a big fan of the Lego aesthetic and I did not expect these to be so beautiful when I clicked on the thread. They're absolutely amazing. Despite being Lego they look straight from the game.

    Happy Birthday Wing Commander 2! (September 4, 2016)

    Wing Commander 2 isn't just my favorite Wing Commander game, it's without hesitation my favorite game of all time. I really couldn't think of any other game that had such a profound effect on me. It was my first entry in the series as well and it was one of my first PC games. The graphics and...

    Half Life: The most overrated game series of all time?

    There were other games that tried to do what Half-Life did before it did those things, but none nailed the immersive feeling the game provided in 1998 better. The game was an underdog, it flew under the radar and only got noticed on the strength of how fantastic it was. I actually recently...

    Wing Commander Finally Gets Its Due? (February 3, 2016)

    Wing Commander isn't the only much lauded classic game on this list though it is one of the most eyebrow raising considering it's a genre defining title. I can only imagine whoever wrote this was doing so from a limited perspective, maybe someone who was a console gamer at the time. Their...

    Star Citizen Fan Creates Wing Commanderific Squadron 42 Box (February 1, 2016)

    That's pretty much exactly how I feel about it. I'm not much of an online gamer but I'll give it a shot.

    Ron Cobb's Wing Commander Concept Art Found! (February 2, 2016)

    I'm not too sure about the capships either but the fighters are really awesome and design wise everything is really cool.
