    Origin gets a nod.

    Kotaku has been doing a PC themed week, and one of their editors, Luke Plunkett, just wrote up an article asking "Who is the greatest PC developer of all time?" His answer was Origin! The article's lead photo is even a Privateer screenshot...

    Has the wing commander movie killed the franchise?

    This. I enjoy the movie. Heck, I've even got an original poster I snatched up from a local theater hanging in my apartment (my girlfriend is always amused that *I* am the one with a Freddie Prinze Jr. poster hanging around). That said, the movie isn't good. The plot holes are there, the...

    BREAKING NEWS: EA Announces... Something? (February 21, 2008)

    Just how many "beloved" franchises of old do you think EA plans on resurrecting all at once? I'll fully admit that it is all speculation, but just what makes you think that the "more likely" solution is that BOTH games are in the works? The simplest answer to this question, much as it sucks...

    BREAKING NEWS: EA Announces... Something? (February 21, 2008)

    Maybe some disappointing news... http://www.gamespot.com/news/show_blog_entry.php?topic_id=26260655&sid=6186823&action=convert&om_clk=latestnews&tag=latestnews;title;1 Quote from the article: "This week comes an apparent clue about a classic EA property being brought back to life--a...

    Surprised this hasn't come up...

    All I'm saying is that it's a start. I'm fairly sure I never claimed that articles like this should sway anyone saying there was no call for these games- they don't. I'm just not entirely sure that dismissing articles that are at the least helping one's cause is entirely useful. Call it an...

    Surprised this hasn't come up...

    C'mon now, LOAF, I don't believe for a second you weren't aware of any of the internet buzz surrounding Cloverfield. That flick had a following before the trailer, and it's following after the trailer was sustained by an interesting ARG and very effective manipulation of Ain't it Cool News...

    Surprised this hasn't come up...

    I'd say it paid off for Cloverfield. Production Budget (est): $25 million Opening Weekend Gross: $40,058,229 :) No, I obviously understand that the popularity of something on the internet is not a real indicator of desire for a product, but at the same time, there have been enough...

    Surprised this hasn't come up...

    I'll grant that, but there's enough people complaining about it now that at least *some* of them must have an ACTUAL desire for these games.

    Surprised this hasn't come up...

    Wing Commander (and other games) got mentioned in yet another retrospective about space sims... http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/issues/issue_136/2918-What-Happened-To-The-Last-Starfighters For a genre that people say has no real market anymore, there sure are a LOT of pieces...

    reasonable predictions for a new WC game

    It strikes me, then, that "new territory" for a Wing Commander game would be a battle where Earth is completely unthreatened. :)

    reasonable predictions for a new WC game

    What I want, and someone mentioned this here in a way, is a way to determine what kind of pilot "I" am in the game. The fact is, I found myself quite often flying like Maniac in the Wing Commander games (especially 3 and 4, where, was it just me or did things get easier?) but I had to listen to...

    EA CEO on Westwood, Bullfrog and Origin purchases: we "blew it"

    ~~~. At least I don't say frak. EDIT: What the? Is m.e.h. filtered?

    Gorram it! Stop being so cryptic lately! :p

    A Question about Wing Commander III

    Fair point. As I said, this is little more than idle musings. Though it would be nice if those all turned up one day.

    A Question about Wing Commander III

    Well, yeah, I have the WC4 DVD and the Prophecy DVD files. BUT, if they were shot on film, there should be even *higher* quality versions out there, which does interest me.

    reasonable predictions for a new WC game

    Fair point. I misunderstood you there. Of course, that said, I THOUGHT I had written that my main reason for not wanting another peripheral is that I just don't have *space*! :p

    A Question about Wing Commander III

    Well, I knew that the fake backgrounds would become more apparent, but yet my interest was there. :) Nonetheless, thanks for the answer. I'll have to dig around to see the "higher quality" PSX version.

    A Question about Wing Commander III

    This has probably been covered, by someone, somewhere, already, but I'm curious. I've been trying to play Wing 3 lately (having no luck with my machine and my KS version of the game, sadly), and I saw a few cutscenes. It's been years since the first time I watched them, and I am sadly forced...

    reasonable predictions for a new WC game

    I tried plugging in a joystick I've got for my PC into the X-Box 360 with no such luck. I'm pretty sure mouse/keyboard peripherals work, though. That said, the stick needs to be on a table to function well. It's got a big 'ol base and such. Picture here...
