    Free to a loving home - my WC collection

    Hi boatgeek, I dropped all of mine to the National Videogame Museum in Sheffield, might be worth contacting them; I didn't have a copy of the Kilrathi Saga to give them.

    Ha Ha, I had that model of joystick back in the day I have a still functioning Saitek Cyborg Evo now, it must be pushing about 15 now.

    Classic GameStar Spread Compares Wing Commander to Freespace and XvT (October 26, 2022)

    I like the description of XvT, "Star Warriors fly through a technologically dated universe" Thats pretty good for an auto translate.

    Ah well, win some, lose some. Any thoughts on when the next launch window will be?

    Wing Commander Makes the Short List(s) (September 5, 2022)

    What I find interesting is the thought that most action orientated 80s and 90s cartoon shows were more about being vehicles for selling toys (thinking MASK, Transformers, He-Man etc.) were there ever any plans for toys for WCATV? I know there were a few toys released for the movie. Not...

    Return to Monkey Island coming 2022

    Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2 are great games! I'd be really interested to see what Ron Gilbert comes up with. I can't work out people's hostile attitudes sometimes, it seems to defy all logic.

    Happy Birthday Wing Commander IV! (February 12, 2022)

    What an epic day it was when this came out and I got the big box as a gift off my parents, straight onto the PC until bedtime! I did wonder who the shadowy figure was at the time.

    Wow, I've missed this; I thought it was a 3D print, but is it a kitbash? its impressive.

    Everything's Enhanced With an Excalibur (November 10, 2021)

    I get more of a Thunderbolt VII vibe off the original image?

    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?

    Lost and Found: WC4 Ships (December 15, 2020)

    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...
