    BREAKING NEWS: Is Wing Commander Poised To Make a Comeback? (September 28, 2010)

    Phew. Got me excited for a second there. Oh well, perhaps the re-release can do some good for the series - generate some interest. But I played WC1 again this year (or was it last year) already (plus the whole series, of course) already.

    Spoony "reviews" Wing Commander

    What? You mean a fan accepts and likes anything in the franchise unconditionally, or at least doesn't "attack" any part of the franchise? I think you need a different term, one I'm not going to speculate on what it is. In any case, I think there's mainly two reactions to game movies like...

    You'll make loaf out of them? Err, in any case, while I never did see anything wrong with Arena's release, I must admit that the movie inspired similar reactions - though obviously I didn't think that the movie would somehow "ruin" any upcoming games. And this thread has been constructive: if...

    Frankly I'm surprised myself for saying such (never done it before), but one thing I've never done is differentiate my sayings between administrators and non-administrators. In any case, I meant that even though Death is an admin, the point was that an admin's job is to control rule-breaking...

    Death, you forget that you are talking to actual living people and all you did was make yourself look bad. There's no way in heck you'd say that to his / their face. Especially with the fly analogy. What is up with that? You think those people are worth just as much as flies? And is this really...

    Yeah, I wasn't complaining about them or even mentioning them in relation to WCM because I didn't have a problem with them - all I'm saying is that the epic, final cutscene with Blair falls on its face as everyone is urging Blair to just GTFO (his ship is 20-30 meters away, as can be seen in the...

    Indeed, the Monkey Island games were on my mind as I started pitching my idea, but apparently such things are not possible today....well, I suppose we'll just have to wait and see if the Monkey Island games will be economically viable, or the 3d adventures from Telltale Games. I admit the...

    Gah, the movie...I saw it once in the theaters and came out angry. I don't get the talk that it's part of the same canon as the games . it obviously won't seam into Wing Commander I where you're fresh off the Academy and meet all of your comrades for the first time, fly your first combat...

    It goes without saying that for their time, the X-Wing series were utterly superior as space sims - however, Wing Commander was unrivaled in story and immersion coupled with space sims. X-Wing's campaign consisted of briefing fluff text and occasional short videos (of course, decorating and...

    Pre-release buzz was positive? All I heard was the clamor and crying of the mindless masses, many of them ex-Wing Commanders (which just goes out to prove you that even old fans of this great series are not necessarily a "cut above the rest", as much as we'd like to think so...) thinking exactly...

    Difficulty levels explained

    Don't get me started on capships in WC1. Those things died in much less than a minute to gunfire and were totally helpless against it. Of course, as can be seen in later titles (even Unknown Enemy's Fralthis and Ralaris) they can't generally be taken down without a torpedo-capable craft...

    Star Wars? When what where? Is there a new Star Wars space sim that I haven't heard of? Oh right, you meant that if Lucasarts isn't going to exploit their X-Wing heritage with a new space sim, chances are slim for Wing Commander. Sadness.

    While an admirable thought, is there any indication of online petitions ever achieving anything? I'm skeptical.

    More good examples of what I meant with retro-style WC: The relaunches of the Monkey Island games. If Ron Gilbert (for example) was helming those projects, there's techically or budget-wise no reason they could have been new games instead of remakes. I think that if any site on the Internet has...
