AVault, which I've never liked much, had a nice article on the Wing Commander Movie. I guess I should consider changing my opinion of them...
Digital Anvil Secures Licensing for Wing Commander Movie

Digital Anvil, in conjunction with Creative Licensing Concepts, have announced a selection of Wing Commander movie-themed merchandise, including toys, limited-edition posters, bicycles and jewelry. This licensing deal follows on the heels of 20th Century Fox's recent announcement that the sci-fi adventure film will be released to theaters nationwide on March 12th.

The movie marks a first in both the computer game and film industries, as the film's director, Chris Roberts, is also the creator of the first four of computer games on which the movie is based. ORIGIN Systems, an Austin-based entertainment software developer, granted the movie rights to Digital Anvil in late 1997. In addition to directing the film, Roberts, CEO of Digital Anvil, also co-wrote the script with Kevin Droney and Mike Finch.

"Since its inception, I have treated the Wing Commander computer game series as a cinematic production with the firm intention that my creation would someday make its way to the big screen," said Roberts. "With the movie releasing in March, moviegoers will be able to get caught up in the emotion and compelling characters that made the games so popular."

Differences a True Collector Would Love

Red-Jackal recently posted a neat 1993 Privateer advertisement from Computer magazine. We've shown it off before, or so I thought, so I almost passed it by. It is a little bit sharper than the one we have in the archive though, so I decided to take a second look. (2019-02-22)

Wing Commander Enters the Retro Zone

Pix recently came across a pretty neat article in the UK magazine PC Zone. I really like it's graphical layout with the Dralthis overflying the slick text. The author is a big fan of the WC series and uses it as an example for awesome '90s games that were outside the realm of his usual fare. (2019-02-19)
