Happy Birthday CIC! Update ID

Whew, we're finally there! After years of hard work (and about 36 hours of insane crunch time) we're officially two years old. You are our first guests as we enter our third year at www.wcnews.com. I really wish I could write something more eloquent, but it's been a bit exhaustive here. Anyhow, we're happy you could be here with us. There have been a huge number of changes in the Wing Commander community since our first birthday, and those fans that remain today are some of the toughest and most dedicated. We're proud to share our fandom with you. Everyone wants a new Wing Commander game, and by this time next year we certainly won't have one. And we probably won't by the birthday after that or the one after that. But that's no matter. We have been blessed with dozens of hours of material to enjoy already. And there is more to come. EA and Origin may have been frozen from our point of view, but there are things to look for on the horizon. Bastei Lübbe continues to convert and print Wing Commander novels in Germany, and things of that sort will provide a commercial side to the continuation of Wing Commander. More importantly for us however, is the renewed interested in fan projects and community we have here online. We have more active projects now than ever before, and they are more promising than any have ever been before. Below you'll find information on the first complete project and a new section devoted to such items in general. But we're getting ahead of ourselves and off topic. We'd like to thank you for visiting and welcome you once again, we hope you enjoy what we have to present today, our second birthday.

Happy Father's Day

Many countries celebrate Father's Day today, and we know a lot of Wing Commander fans have recently become dads out there. My little one just turned 16 months old, and I'm happy to that see she grabs a controller and starts pushing buttons whenever she gets a chance.The CIC is more of a news site than a blog, but it's also a community hub more than anything, and it feels right to share this personal story with the community.

There's tons of great Wing Commander fan projects out there, but it's not every day that we get a teaser for a new one.

Projects like these have been proposed a number of times over the years, but we haven't seen very many come to fruition. (2018-06-16)

Who knew IMDB made little video shorts? They've just posted a clip to celebrate the recent 25th birthday of the Super Mario Brothers movie. It talks a bit about why the film was the way it was and how it was critically panned. (2018-06-15)
