    PC Gamer 100 best PC games of all time

    I was looking over PC Gamer's website and noticed that Wing Commander III made the list this year at 72. Though they used a screenshot from WCIV. It's a shame Freespace 2 got higher on the list, but it's always neat to see Wing Commander mentioned in a positive light in a magazine. Check out...

    The WCM Broadsword

    So, the Film's Rapiers were made from old English Electric Lightnings, but I've always wondered about the Movie's Broadswords. Were they made from scratch? Because they sure look like the cockpits of old English Electric/Martin Canberra Bombers. What do you guys think?

    Landreich Flag

    Hey everyone, I've been reading through False Colors and I decided I'd try my hand at making a Free Republic of the Landreich flag. It's not the greatest, in a matter of fact it pretty much sucks, but this is sort of how I imagined it to look.

    The movie Bengal

    For every ship in the WCM we have a reason why they look wildly different than their game counterpart, and in most cases that's because they're different ships, so I wondered, is there a reason the Bengal of the movie looks nothing like the one in the games? Is it just artistic direction, or did...

    The Big Year

    Okay, I've been playing around with the idea of a fan fic for a long time, but I figured I'd actually go for it now. It's 2669, the Big Year in the Terran-Kilrathi War, and the TCS Saratoga and her crew have thier work cut out from New Years to the end of the War and after the Treaty of Torgo...

    I did it!

    I got my medical certification. Pretty soon I will have my pilots certification in no time. I was suppose to have it in December and my cousin died and it resulted in the dianosis of antidepressants I did not need. Needless to say I was pissed. But I have it now!

    Im pissed off. Venting Anger

    I have the worst ass-wipe PE teacher. I work my ass off in that class and do everything have to do. Of course I only weigh 140 pounds and I am six three. I also am the most physically uncoordinated student. Naturally horrible at everything. Anyways the worthless crap-pipe says that he grades on...

    USS San Francisco SSN-711

    Probably my favorite boat in the US Navy is the USS San Francisco. This is probably because I went on it when I was 5 but thats not the point. I looked it up on the net again and I learned it was the sub that ran into a mountain.

    Some bugs I noticed

    Okay I was playing it last night when I saw some interesting things. One was Voyager from Star Trek. That was pretty weird. Another thing Is that occasionaly the Jump points will be invisible. The final thing are the mass-drivers; are they supposed to shoot nearly invisible spheres?

    Priv asteroid depot

    I was playing Privateer last night when I found it! (Well sorta) Okay what I found was the Steltek Derelect. However, in Priv the Drone is thought to be Kilrathi. Thus I made the conclusion that the Derelect it the Depot. BTW: It was my first time playing Privateer's story line.

    The TCS Firekka's Simulator

    Will it be in Ep.2 because it would allow the player to get more flight time in Standoff's fighters. I mean by now if you go around playing the missions like me over and over, you should be pretty good by now. Of course the problem is that we are only good against Talons and Tarsus and we are...

I was looking at the some changes to the game Engima Rising Tide. I was looking at the New PT boat and noticed that the person...

    Talahasse and Shefeilds (a wc history question)

    I read on the WC Galactic Conflict forums that they were a pre-war design. This would make sense considering they look like the Victory. I also remeber LOAF saying this as well. However, for the love of god, how can they be so good in WC3. I understand refits and whatnot but, really I remember...

    Operation Flashpoint 2

    Im eagerly awaiting this game. I thought Flashpoint was great minus the fact that it was based on a 1998 Graphics engine. I mean the latter addons on the net looked great but still a bit dated. Not to mention the fact that the physics were screwey. Like one time I nailed a UAZ with a LAW and the...
