    The Winning Ending (November 7, 2020)

    *looks at the silly claim that US healthcare is the best in the world* The US, where public healthcare spending is twice as high as in other developed countries for several years lower life expectancy. The country with one of the lower life expectancy of the First World, and where life...

    See the Evolution of the Confed Shuttle (October 29, 2020)

    There you go, mesh plus normal Confederation texture for the Wing Commander 4 shuttle.

    Dame Da Ne memes for WC Characters...

    Pass over the jug, mate.

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    It's a love letter to Privateer, first and foremost (full of references to it and the Wing Commander games, as one would expect). I haven't finished the main storyline but roughly got to most of the top-of-the-line equipment in 18 hours of gameplay, and will now go for these missions. As for the...

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    Grabbed it on Steam, looks and plays decently, the only issue I'd have is a bit of uncanny valley feeling with the main character and how she is animated.

    Goodbye, Rob Cobb (September 21, 2020)

    Now that I look more closely to the Broadsword concept art, I kinda see the nose of the Lance/Dragon in it, particularly in the cockpit's position and shape. It's a really nice design, kinda hope we could see more of it.

    Before Mankind Was Locked in a Deadly War (August 22, 2020)

    The FoF missile is absolutely a deadly weapon late in battle. They're wisely not adding any indication on whom is getting to experience the deadly part.

    WC3 Ad Hypes Japanese Market (August 19, 2020)

    That's some damn great high-resolution Excalibur here. I don't think I've ever seen that model before.

    Command & Conquer Remastered Collection Announced (March 10, 2020)

    Plus, the cheap FMV and the acting are definitely part of the games' appeal.

    Wing Commander 3.....where'd Maniac go?

    If this happened, it most likely means he got killed during combat at some point, though I'm surprised he was flagged as being in danger so soon in the game.

    That One About Akkbar (April 1, 2002)

    A misunderstood hero, a stabler genius than Tolwyn.

    Not Quite the Combat Information Centers for Disease Control... (March 28, 2020)

    Leaving Locanda IV appears to be the proper move.

    Stay safe, wingnuts

    The important element is whether the lockdown will be followed. We had quite the troubles doing so in the first days, and enforcing it requires increasingly higher fines as a deterrent.

    Stay safe, wingnuts

    It's unlikely any vaccine will be found in time, and the fatality rate isn't high enough to justify a hail mary trying untested ones. Expectations are for twelve to twenty four months to a vaccine. Some drugs have decent potential mitigating the symptoms and are being tested as I type: if they...

    Stay safe, wingnuts

    Most models I've heard about indicate that this WILL kill millions across the world. The Brits have calculated that even with strong confinement measures, the fatalities will be above a million in the US alone, a quarter to half a million in UK, etc. In Italy, they're getting close to one...

    Stay safe, wingnuts

    Exponential function is a b***h. From what numbers are available, you're a couple of weeks away from our situation. It doesn't mean getting insane with panic buys, but rather preparing as a society. One thing you can do that isn't hurting is to see in the neighbourhood how to organize people to...

    Stay safe, wingnuts

    Oh, OK, didn't realize that, sorry.

    Stay safe, wingnuts

    What? When did I ever say I suspected to be infected? Confinement procedures aren't for infected people, they're for everyone.

    Stay safe, wingnuts

    We don't really have supermarkets around where I live, only very small grocery stores, and there's noone in it when I get in the one 40 seconds away from my place, the cashier is wearing gloves as well as a mask while we use contactless payment with cards. Long story short, I don't touch...

    Stay safe, wingnuts

    I'd say it seriously depends where you live. In European large towns and cities, grocery stores are usually within five minutes on foot, and the lockdowns allow grocery runs, so I got out after four days to get food for my standard grub (when I can't get food in restaurants and stuff, I tend to...
