AD found this spectacularly awesome clip of doctorcdcs playing The Secret Missions 2. We've all been there before: head to head against a Dralthi, guns destroyed, out of missiles, out of afterburner fuel, no more front armor and splash damage erupting all around. But do we call it quits? No! doctorcdcs demonstrates exactly what makes the original Wing Commander such a perfect game. You can just feel the tension right through your screen as if you were there. Watch the one-minute snippet to see how it ends!




Who needs guns and afterburners when all you really need is a ship and a dream?

The last several times I've played WC1 I've used the KS version with wcdx

I had completely forgotten about 'Weapon destroyed' and taking on enemies with one laser. Was weapon damage removed from the Kilrathi Saga version?

Maybe I'm just remembering wrong, it's also possible it just didn't happen to me in my recent playthroughs, but that seems unlikely.
