    Privateer Day: As Seen on TV? (June 3, 2011)

    In 1995, Origin developed plans for a TV show spun off of Privateer! The idea was that there would be two further Privateer games and a weekly TV series which would all tell a combined story over the course of a year.

    Prowler Found (August 11, 2011)

    My Favorite Movie (March 12, 2019)

    In 1999, they made a movie of my favorite video game. Like much of the fandom at the time, I was a senior in high school and it was that point in our lives when the world seemed most huge and infinite, the future seemed wonderful and terrifying and we all seemed like we could do no wrong. We had...

    How to Play Wing Commander with Friends (and Enemies!) (February 26, 2019)

    Head-to-head campaigns aren't as big commitments as they sound, the game actually lets you save and continue them in multiplayer the same as single player. You could whittle away a single sector once a week and go from there. (We also used to do play-by-mail campaigns where you'd turn off...
