    TIE Fighter Total Conversion - Full Release Trailer

    Looks sharp! I have been playing through Tie fighter again (reliving my youth); up to battle 10, but I will need to restart looking at the quality of this!

    Is it just me or does actor Gregory Peck..

    Yes, I can see the resemblance, especially in that first photo. So the the next step, is it coincidence or something deeper?

    anyone else get a "kilrathi-esque" vibe off that black lance carrier? I could imagine if it can cloak or something it might have kilrathi technology integrated maybe?

    Star Wars: Squadrons – “Hunted” CG Short Film

    Its an impressive trailer and looking at some of the gameplay videos I get the feeling that they've got it 'right' in terms of feel for the main part. Not sure about the 5 v 5 mechanic, but I don't have a PC capable of running it so I won't be able to test it. Have fun if you do pick it up

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

    That is a nifty piece of history; I am always amazed at the cost of the games back then, $60; and after all this time they are still about the $60 mark. Allowing for inflation they should be over $100

    The return of MicroProse!

    Grand prix 2, what a game! I think that was in the box of stuff I gave to the NVGA in Nottingham (well Sheffield now) So easy to crash though.

    The return of MicroProse!

    It had some really good ideas, even on the logistics side with having to organise missile supplies and replacement ships, having to escort your own freighters etc. agreed the flight engine was a little mediocre though.

    Academy Online! First Impressions & Super Ship Roundup (July 15, 2020)

    that's pretty interesting. I never picked up Barnes ship was a Sabre I kind of thought the strakha / Sartha was a prototype proof of concept retrofit thingy in my mind, before they designed a dedicated fighter (Strakha could have been its codename :) ) The last one, I thought that was a Rapier...

    The return of MicroProse!

    Wow, HGreat news! thats a real nostalgia trip. Gunship 2000, what a game. And X-COM Interceptor, the intro is stuck in my mind.

    Its a shame projects don't always work out. Can you share any deets on it now, or is it all still hush hush? I really enjoyed Starlancer, great seeing the early sketches and models again in this thread. Really liked the modular design of the Reliant, like you could just bolt on a new hanger...

    Throwback Achievements Developed for Retro Wing Commander Games (February 23, 2020)

    "Look out for flying rocks" or "You're no good to me reduced to atoms" as a nod to WCA TV?

    "Exciting remasters"

    Who's got the rights to Tie Fighter I wonder? presumably Disney?

    "Exciting remasters"

    I am a bit late to this one, but RGO has that Wing Commander feel. I'd feel comfortable as a fan trusting Howard with it if he and his team were contracted to create a remaster of WIng 1 and 2 by EA. If it was EA internally I'd share Quarto's concerns, but it'd be out of our control.
