News for anybody wanting to get SO in Germany! Smily, over at the Chat Board reports that the current issues of PC Player and PC Joker have cover CD's which include Secret Ops. The PC Player CD apparently does NOT include the speech pack.
Boomer is back, at alt.games.wing-commander! He posted some very encouraging stuff about the new Maverick team executive producer Andy Hollis... it's in response to Derek Smart, whom we firmly believe should have been beaten by the Coke machine. Anyway, Boomer's comments seem to echo what we've been hearing everywhere -- a little Hollis is a very good thing.
Just because Andy is known for producing high fidelity flight sims for Janes doesn't mean that equates to WC suddenly turning into a high fidelity space sim.
This isn't to say future titles from the Maverick team won't have his 'mark' on them (superb quality, well designed, etc.). Just that WC will have certain (positive) attributes resulting from Andy's influence just as Janes does. Said another way, WC won't (necessarily) possess the same hallmarks of what makes a 'Janes flight simulation' what it is.
That said, given his track record & accomplishments wrt Janes, I'm 110% confident Andy's influence means only great things for the future of the WC universe ;)
To all good things there must come an end... I can't help but shed a tear as I announce that the final Secret Ops fiction has been posted. It's s fairly emotional log entry from everybody's second favorite Casey, check it out.
No, it's not you. Wonder why all the Secret Ops people keep thinking that you should have read an ICIS document on the SS Blue Horizon? Yeah, so did we... so we went straight to the source. By which I mean we made something up: Apparently this fairly important ICIS document was never put up with the rest of the fiction, even through Captain Enoch and company mention it several times. Check out The Lost SO Fiction here! Thanks to The Amazing Captain Johnny for giving us a copy when it wasn't posted.
