    Tired of Japandrogyny

    What I meant by "emo" was not a specific visual style but a character attitude portraying rejection, isolation, and sometimes resentment which has little do with the actual game conflict and is usually rooted in the character's vague and cliche past. It leaves me with the same feeling as...

    Tired of Japandrogyny

    Ok, this is definitely off-topic, but I'm curious what you guys think. I am a pretty big fan of the RPG genre, and I've played the hell out of them since the original Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior on the NES (both of which I still play in cartridge form from time to time). Fortunately, I...

    Most anticipated video game of the fall?

    There are 5 good gameplay vidoes for Fallout 3 available for download under the "What's New" -> "Game Videos" section of the Xbox Live marketplace, and they are worth watching. You can build weapons from junk you find in the wasteland, including a C4/lunchbox shrapnel bomb and a gun which fires...

    Most anticipated video game of the fall?

    You can make targeted shots at certain body parts while using guns similar to the previous games; time will pause momentarily while you do so. I think a blend of FPS and RPG is probably the best description.

    Do you also have little Kilrathis?

    Long-haired calico cats are a personal favorite of mine.

    First person shooter?

    Thank you for linking that thread, it exactly the sort of info I was looking for.

    Most anticipated video game of the fall?

    Fable 2 definitely looks awesome, and despite how long I've been waiting for Fallout 3 and how much faith I have in Bethesda (Oblivion rocked my socks), it's still going to be a tossup which disc I insert each time I turn on the old Xbox. Plus, my friends will be playing both, and I refuse to be...

    First person shooter?

    Do handheld weapons in the WC universe fire projectiles or energy?

    Most anticipated video game of the fall?

    We're fixing to have a good holiday rush this year and I'm just curious what game it is you all can't wait to play, or if it launched already, what game it is you can't stop playing. Personally I can't wait for Fallout 3....

    Why we should vote a third party

    It's true that this is a mostly Christian country, and that both parties have claimed specific issues which Christians identify with. Democrats champion assisting the poor and preserving the environment, Republicans champion family values and science ethics. However it's also true that...

    First person shooter?

    I'm sure this has been discussed here many times but I'm having some difficulty getting good search results on it. Has anyone made a first person shooter WC project? I guess it may not be the most popular concept in a space combat sim genre, but I would greatly enjoy some racking up some...

    Why we should vote a third party

    I have to agree with both of you that there need to be safeguards in a proportional representation to ensure that destabilizing elements don't gain significant power, a threshold being one of the most practical examples, and I would never suggest any system is without flaw or potential for...

    Why we should vote a third party

    Sorry Shaggy I totally failed to make my sarcasm clear enough there, it was supposed to be a subtle stab at American politics but probably had the appearance of dumb ignorance. In *actual* seriousness, we cannot expect any 3rd party to win unless we restructure our electoral system. Right...

    What makes a JumpScout?

    It could possibly also mean someone who jumps through any point (enemy or not) immediately before something like a capital ship to ensure it's clear on the other side. This is a random guess and I know nothing about Luna Jones ;)

    Turrets in PGG

    Thanks for the info. I think the loyalty to the original is definitely a plus.

    WC Dock Icons

    I am no digital artist and have had no luck finding any dock icons to represent the wing commander games in ObjectDock. Privateer GG and Prophecy are the only 2 I need at the moment, and I don't mind representing either with a generic WC icon like the Confed emblem or something, but I can't find...

    Why we should vote a third party

    I think MTV's "Real World" is the most damning evidence against our generation. But in all seriousness... what's a third party? :confused:

    Armada Q&A

    Thanks to both of you for the assistance and welcome. I did manage to get the game to run without any problems, but was unaware of the tweaks needed for online play, so I've made those adjustments now. The manual you mentioned was just what I needed, so now I just need to get the swing of the...

    Armada Q&A

    Hi, I've just recently decide to revive my childhood interest in the Wing Commander games and I'm new to this forum and website (which are excellent by the way, and I hope I can contribute some worthwhile conversation if nothing else). I've acquired a copy of Armada, one of the few WC games I...

    Turrets in PGG

    I recently decided to revive my childhood interest in the Wing Commander game series and discovered this excellent treasure trove of fandom (the CIC and solsector.net), and even better, somebody had already remade my favorite one of all (several times apparently) with real 3d graphics and stuff...
