    Germans Love Their Wing Commander (December 14, 2018)

    Good ol' Heinrich. That's him too by the way Love the bit at 2:05 where he's supposed to leave but can't stop playing.

    Casper Van Dien On Wing Commander 4, Starship Troopers & Much More (January 9, 2018)

    I remember seeing that scene for the first time thinking "huh, that dude looks like Casper van Dien from Starship Troopers!". I ultimately decided that couldn't possibly be him, i thought he wouldn't settle for such a small role in a video game.

    The Balance of Power in WC

    Also don't forget at the beginning the Kilrathi wanted a quick decicive victory against the Terrans, what they actually were preparing for was the incoming invasion from the other end of their empire. Must've worked out about as well as the Schlieffen-plan did.

    Exclusive Pilot's Medal Packed with Rare German WC4 (January 22, 2017)

    Those are typical German dog tags by the way. You'd break them in two and put one half on the body. Every army shop could make you some of those, but the (R) right there is really interesting... Was this actually approved by Origin?

    Last Chance To Boost Wing Commander Album Campaign (November 10, 2016)

    I've tried via Kickstarter, as that seemed to be the proper channel to me. I'm not assuming malicious indifference or anything, certainly not of George. I'm sure it has to do with spam filters or too much emails to answer or something like that.

    Last Chance To Boost Wing Commander Album Campaign (November 10, 2016)

    I've backed this even though i haven't even received my physical copy of the last album. George isn't answering to my mails either, but seeing this new project come true would be really nice either way.

    Classic Star Trek Adventure on GOG

    As far as i can tell all games released so far are Interplay titles. Does anyone know if there's a chance for the Microprose games to see the light of day too? Would love to play Final Unity and Generations once more. I don't even know who they'd have to approach for these today, but the old...

    Elite: Dangerous

    I played it a few hours in Beta, but that whole consistent online world stuff is not my thing (not that it stands out as one very much currently). I found myself grinding for a new ship, which i could use more effectively to... grind for another ship. That said, the combat is fun, the graphics...

    Saving a Dragon!

    Clearly you lie, i've seen it fly. But that's ok, i understand that you wouldn't want to show everyone what's inside your garage.

    You have my support as a legal gun owner in a country that has already crossed that line and went a few hundred miles extra. My meagre collection:

    Saving a Dragon!

    That's awesome. Now where's the rest of the dang thing?

    King's Quest Returns in 2015 (December 6, 2014)

    I just see the whole Syndicate debacle happening again. Die-hard fans might reject the game out of principle and for new players it should offer something remarkable other than its name. Though to be fair, Syndicate was really just a mediocre game, the name was supposed to raise it from...

    King's Quest Returns in 2015 (December 6, 2014)

    Though i *do* remember dying a lot in the original game (like in all Sierra adventures), i really can't remember it being such a QTE-fest as what i'm expecting when i see this trailer. I'm far from being a pessimist, but this looks like they're going to alienate two target audiences at once...

    ESA Lands Probe on Comet (November 12, 2014)

    Landing on a comet? Whoop-de-doo, i do that in Privateer all the time. Of course only if "comet" is comparable to "asteroid". And "landing" comparable to "crashing into". Ok, maybe landing on a comet is indeed quite a feat.

    New 3D Thread

    That's sad, but you surely made a hell of a farewell present. Good luck with whatever it is you're about to do, be it work, family or something entirely different. Heck, sometimes i didn't even expect you to *have* a family considering the amount of content you created, be sure to make up for...

    New 3D Thread

    Yay, that's great. It's the next best thing to actually being able to fly them meself. The textures look a little lo-res, are they supposed to scale up when you cache long enough or does the site have a size limit?

    Some models...

    I have to agree with Aginor here, the second version looks much better. The bulky boxiness is what made the Thunderbolt the Thunderbolt, the wings indicate agility where you'd expect brute force. But then again i probably like the second one better just because it looks more like the game...

    Transverse Saga Continues To Unfold; Game Evolved From WC Online Pitch (September 11, 2014)

    What's funny is that Gamestar sells this under the headline "EA accuses PGI of giving false testimony" when apparently all that happened was that they (Gamestar) asked some dude at EA if PGI owns the Wing Commander property/licence and the dude in question said "nah, don't think so". Doesn't...

    Transverse Saga Continues To Unfold; Game Evolved From WC Online Pitch (September 11, 2014)

    The way i see it, both parties at least agree that there were negotiations. Maybe EA wanted to know the overall concept as proof that they're serious (that would explain the concept art), then PGI realized their concept wouldn't fit the franchise and further negotiation was cancelled. Depending...

    Transverse Saga Continues To Unfold; Game Evolved From WC Online Pitch (September 11, 2014)

    I really don't know what to think of this developer and how much of its reputation comes down to typical internet bashing, but if it's true that they saw and acknowledged that the game they had in mind wouldn't live up to the Wing Commander franchise, their judgement can't be TOTALLY off. I'm...
