    Wing Commander: Eagle Rising - A Game Idea

    Was I raging? Did I come across as raging? Wow. Sorry everybody. I really didn't think I raged at all, I was just asking.

    Wing Commander: Eagle Rising - A Game Idea

    Just to be clear, I don't really care whether it's canon -- I think it's impossible to set something in this universe without having to choose some piece of official product to ignore -- I just wasn't sure if there even was an official canon, or if it was more of a "whatever you feel like...

    Wing Commander: Eagle Rising - A Game Idea

    Sorry, I didn't notice the ensuing conversation. Everything may be canon, but there are directly contradictory elements between the Movie and everything else (Blair is Jedi, cough, cough), like Bossman's date of death, Blair and Angel's hookup, Paladin's job, rank and nationality, you know...

    Wing Commander: Eagle Rising - A Game Idea

    Is that canon? Is that like, retconned canon or something?

    Wing Commander in the modern age

    Co-op WC was definitely always a dream. But that would be very challenging for the narrative. The story immediately becomes an ensemble piece, but for an ensemble to work well, you've got to have a varied cast with differing attitudes, opinions, and skills. And the more you stylize the...

    What have you felt when Kilrah exploded?

    Different strokes for different folks, I guess! My favorite element of the GTA games was I thought the attention to detail was really nice. The names of the cars, the radio stations, I really liked those elements. But I've never been a huge fan of mob movies, so the whole crime aspect never...

    Wing Commander: Eagle Rising - A Game Idea

    Re: cutscenes: there are really two directions to go in. 1) FMV. Not necessary with today's technology. Costly in terms of costumes/props/greenscreen studio space/cameras/crew. 2) CGI. Takes a talented team of artists and animators, and takes TIME. Each have their cons. Personally, I...

    Wow. That formatting did not come out pretty, did it?

    Wing Commander: Eagle Rising - A Game Idea

    So, I've got a million projects running right now, including an animated sci-fi music video and a series of macross fan animations. Here's a look at the animated music video (it's meant to be cartoony): And the macross joint: But I'm also interested in getting into doing some more...

    Wing Commander in the modern age

    Oh yeah, also, can we just forget Prophecy ever happened? Or heavily retcon it or something?

    Wing Commander in the modern age

    Multiplayer? How does that work in the world of the interactive movie? Multiple protagonists? I don't want an infinite WC universe with no finite story and no identifiable characters. I basically want a more polished, more sophisticated Wing Commander. We don't need FMV, we can do it...

    Wing Commander: Eagle Rising - A Game Idea

    I wanted to add my two cents: I think any discussion of whether male players will feel comfortable with a female character begins and ends with Lara Croft. The Tomb Raider series sold about a bazillion units and gave us twice the terrible movies that the Wing Commander franchise gave us...

    What have you felt when Kilrah exploded?

    I was in my early-mid teens when WC3 came out. I was heavily invested not only in the action gameplay of the series, but in the story lines. Hobbes' betrayal hit me like a ton of bricks. Maybe to some it was obvious, but it's obviousness is why I never suspected it. I mean, I escorted that...

    Progress Update #3

    I just saw this post -- I rarely patrol the boards -- and this art is AMAZING. Been dreaming of some new WC stuff. I'm an old school pilot from the WC1 days. Hope this project keeps moving.

    The WC4 'Price Of Freedom' Movie Project

    Oh, actually, you may still be an amateur filmmaker, but these are really big projects you've undertaken, and you've done a great job. Believe me, there are PLENTY of professionals (some I have worked with) who are not capable of putting together something like that. I was going to ask what...

    The WC4 'Price Of Freedom' Movie Project

    Hey. I wasn't really trying to be a brat with anything sarcastic. My quip about the clairvoyant Kilrathi was just meant to be a joke. Upon rewatching these bad boys, it has become somewhat clear to me that despite the fact that I LOVE Wing Commander, these games had some pretty cliche and/or...

    The WC4 'Price Of Freedom' Movie Project

    Oh yeah, and the WC3 b/w flashbacks just seem kinda corny. For instance, it's clear from the narrative that Vagabond and Blair are old chums, and it's painfully clear from the overwrought scene of Vagabond losing a game of cards that he's always lucky... until that moment when his luck runs...
