    This song sounds familiar

    I was just checking out a cracked article (which is a humor site, not advertising or anything) and I came across this youtube song/video in an article. Now if you check it out from 20 secs til about 1:20 it sounds very familiar, guitar interlude. This song sounds familiar from Privateer but...

    reddit with Clive Owen

    Not a big news story, but saw this recently over at reddit, not too much of a story but Privateer 2 was a question. *start Q: Welcome to Reddit! How was your experience with acting in the game Privateer 2: The Darkening? A: It was one of the first ever video games to do that I remember - they...

    Admiral Tolwyn Does It For The Kids (June 20, 2013)

    One of my favorite video game characters of all time. Admiral Tolwyn was a great character. And it's hard to believe they found such a great actor to portray the role. I have trouble seeing him play a Wing Commander game(I'd imagine he's more into tennis or golf or something more outdoorsy)...

    How Warm's Your Cockpit Seat? (June 16, 2013)

    I have a second computer that is an older one with DOSBOX and all my favorite old games and particularly all my wing commander games, complete with SB Live! sound card that lets me use my same ole Gravis 2 button (with 3 buttons) joystick that i've used since I first played Wing Commander. The...

    Corvettes: Paradigm vs Venture?

    The Paradigm to me is a bothersome ship, it is never well defined in any context, similar to the Wildcat. I wish there was more information about either of them. The Paradigm to me is a corvette just because of how few varied operative missions it can undertake versus the average destroyer in...

    Cheap-ass tested joystick "On a budget"

    I've used this joystick for every Wing Commander since the first one when I was about 7-8 years old. It still works fine surprisingly. That joystick you bought looks more comfortable not surprisingly, but why not just invest into a Soundblaster Live and have fairly good audio quality and a...

    Wing Commander IV Box Art (April 3, 2012)

    Never noticed it on my box! Checked it out just now and sure enough.. Biologigal... Is the sticker on the inside of the box an indication of the order of creation? Mine was 9054.

    Saga Download Tally (March 29, 2012)

    I wonder if EA itself is also tracking the downloads & using the data themselves to see what kind of interest there is in another space sim. Makes a great marketing tool to see what kind of interest in a forgotten genre there still is. It'd be a nice little tin foil hat thought, hope the...

    The Darkest Dawn is Cleared for Launch

    Just wanted to say thanks for putting the effort into this project for all these years. The game plays great even on my crappy computer. Nice to have a new game that uses a joystick. Going to be interesting to see the results of the SDK for other fan made projects in the years to come.

    What have you felt when Kilrah exploded?

    I felt like "It's afterburner time" then when I got tractored I figured I was dead for sure. Then I remember Maniac died and thought "well at least he died too." And then the Kilrathi proposed their surrender and then I was disappointed because I thought it would be the end of the Wing...

    A list of Privateer gun stats

    I was curious about the gun stats so I googled them and figured it would be something off here. Ran into a link to a site that had some pretty interesting statistics. Even claiming the ones on wcnews were wrong, so I thought I'd post them here for anyone else to see/critique...

    What a novel conversation!

    I'd have to say End Run is my personal favorite as well it is the most adventurous in my opinion and has the best character development, if anyone wants an idea for a fan mod, that would be my dream one. Fleet Action comes in a close second due to the many layers of deception and the nuances of...

    WC-Saga looking for Beta Testers

    Really wish I had Descent Freespace or whatever Freespace game this appears to be based off. I used to have it, but can't find my copy. Maybe I will have to check ebay.

    Origin gets a nod.

    Surprised they did not mention Tom Chilton who is/was(?) one of the lead designers for WoW, he was with Origin at point as well.

    Another Internet Cynical Essay About FMV Games

    Pretty nostalgic article, even if it does come off as pessimistic. I enjoyed it, I think the first FMV game I played was Maddog McCree this weird shooter game that had FMV sequences for gun duels in a wild west type of background, for the SegaCD.
