    Playboy on Wing Commander (October 1, 2017)

    Now I wonder if there was more to casting Ginger Lynn... Think Chris Robert's might have known from the second she walked in that having her would have meant more coverage in the men's magazines circles? Playboy would of course have been a great vehicle to reach certain stereotypes; stereotypes...

    Fusion Visits Wing Commander IV (July 11, 2017)

    I think my heart broke when I read the quote from Jason Bernard. They mentioned how nobody in the cast actually played video games, besides him... And I had no clue he was into games. I do recall seeing Mark Hamill remark, with big smiles on his face, how it was all above him... Despite Chris...

    Amiga WC thoughts + Amiga World Review

    Hey everyone. I'm in the middle of finishing up quite an in-depth review for Wing Commander on the Amiga, and I always love throwing in contemporary reviews at the time. Being someone who first experienced Wing Commander on the Amiga, I gotta say I adore it on the machine, and fell in love just...

    The MT-32 VS The Amiga

    I don't think I've ever tried Wing Commander with the PC speaker... Did it offer any music that way or just sound effects? I don't know what it is about that damn speaker but I always get a kick out of it when I do happen to come across a game that used it for music. If Wing Commander used some...

    The MT-32 VS The Amiga

    - Although, it has just occurred to me that with regards to FM music, it's possible this place might have the largest amount of people who in fact do have a fondness for FM... Given that before Adlib the PC had beeps... And certain games like Wing Commander, although designed for the MT-32, for...

    Possible To Love Just One Wing Commander?

    Seeing another big fan write that, I think I understand it a little more... but while I do love the Amiga version I can't honestly say I think it's better than the original when all things are considered. While I've never gotten the chance to play the 3DO version I have sought out videos and...

    The MT-32 VS The Amiga

    This is a topic caused by a general frustration over "tiny" comments I sometimes see in various places on the internet when discussing Wing Commander's music. Despite the Amiga's version of the Wing Commander music being generally praised I have often seen a simple light hearted and good comment...

    meet the poster

    Actually, I fondly remember your post, well, sort of "series" on that. If I'm not mistaken, and indeed, this is all based on memories of crap that probably happened over 3 years ago... You had a few issues with your Amiga and had to send it to some caring people to fix it up? In my eyes, sort of...

    Dos Secret Missions 1.5

    - I believe I would have had the very first version. I downloaded it the very second I read the post and tried it out pretty much right after, doing the video as I went. I just downloaded this new update for the install routine. I did try to point out "I think this is sort of in the beta form...

    Possible To Love Just One Wing Commander?

    I can’t say I expect too many fans of Wing Commander to quite understand the story I’m about to tell. It’s the fact that I couldn't quite grasp the integrity of the opinion as not only a Wing Commander fan, but taking that aside, I couldn’t understand it as just a fan of games, which is what...

    Dos Secret Missions 1.5

    Forgive the harshness in the video, just an excited guy going off the cuff. I believe I was pretty good with keeping in mind this was a fan creation, yet when it came to the ending for some reason I was sure that was something that could be added on. Of course that would require additional art...

    Dos Secret Missions 1.5

    Well, of course Hamill was too old to play the young Blair, but why did they have to be young? In true "Captain Hindsight" ways; I so wonder what might have been if they stuck with what they already knew worked. This cast worked with the games, racked you up over a million in sales at a time...

    Hey everyone. My name is Chris, callsign Shot. I'm 31 and am from Detroit, Michigan. I am of the extraordinarily lucky individuals to have grown up with a Commodore Amiga (4 stores nearby sold them, people had them and loved them in America, too), a computer 10 years ahead of its time. I feel my...
