Jack Hogan has begun a "Choose Your Own Adventure" project for Wing Commander. It's a neat concept that I'm surprised hasn't been around more. Just the very beginnings of the story are set, and visitors to the site build it as they go along. It just needs a lot of content and effort put into it now, which the readers provide. I'll be interested to see how it fills out. You can find WCI here.
pc.ign.com's take on SL is from the point of view that we are in the middle of a resurgence in the space sim genre. Too little too late for us at the moment perhaps, but it does seem like there's been a notable space sim coming out every month or two for quite a while now. Anyhow, they give the game a 9.2 and have a whole ton of archived pictures and other media. There's also a very simple opinion poll on the page. More reviews should have that. You can find this one here.
