    Wing Commander 2 Live Stream Saturday! (September 16, 2016)

    I missed it too, I couldn't get the day off. I was pretty disappointed. I caught the replay though. Good stuff, learned a lot, and laughed a little each time Loaf was atomized by friendly fire, which, sadly, happens all too often in WC2.

    Happy 25th Birthday Wing Commander! (September 26, 2015)

    That was pretty cool. I wish I could've watched it live, and I wish I could've had a chance to win that signed box. Pretty cool to see all the collectibles that everybody has. It was great to see Chris Roberts play his own game, and get smoked. Congrats to Loaf for nailing Kurasawa 2 in one...

    Escapist's Not Feeling Privateer (July 21, 2014)

    I'm with you. All great truths begin as blasphemies, and I didn't want to post it until someone else did so we can be sacrificed together to the cult of Grayson Burrows that exists around here. Privateer is the Wing Commander i revisit the least.

    What's Next for Wing Commander?

    Agreed, it's a copycat world. But this is EA we are talking about. It'll be a half-assed console port.

    Best Place to Park a Tarsus? (October 20, 2013)

    Agreed, but I also remember at the time it was still pretty neat to have the choice to trade, I don't recall too many games offering that type of game mechanic combined with the visual presentation. Each time I had the urge to play the wing commander games when I was a kid, I had to delete...

    Best Place to Park a Tarsus? (October 20, 2013)

    i was one of the few that loved flying off of Perry. Going through the other Wing Commanders kind of instilled a sort of feeling of duty to protect humanity, so i flew a lot off of perry and the some of the other borderzone systems. i have to admit i never really got into the trading part of...

    Something you all might enjoy

    Chris, thanks for the reply. the first place I looked was the galciv.com library. unfortunately, someone there asked about these in early 2012, and that was the last post on the topic of these particular models. A glance at midnightrunner's profile also reveals he hasn't been active there...

    Worst Mission Ever

    I couldn't agree more. my first pc which I played WC2 on barely met the requirements, so reacting to the asteroids was hindered, but damn those asteroids were more or less guided projectiles. Broadsword was the worst too, I've lost count how many times I thought I was clear of an asteroid but...

    Things you'd like to see in Star Citizen

    not gonna be a popular opinion but im hoping for some dlc campaigns later down the road similar to secret missions and special operations. Don't get me wrong im sure the squadron 42 is gonna be sweet but i'm hoping the military side of things gets its proper treatment and is expanded on instead...

    Breaking: Roberts Space Industries Hits $6.237 Million! (November 19, 2012)

    as a pc gamer and wing commander being my all time favorite game, the game that got me into pc gaming, Chris Roberts is my hero. The pathetic state of pc gaming these days has been tough to endure, and hopefully the overwhelming success of this crowd funding campaign can show the big publishers...
