This Means MechWar! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Warren Liu points us out this review of MechWarrior 4 at GoneGold, which rates the game up there with the very best of them: "Personally I was reminded of Wing Commander, which of course is always a good thing, though the missions themselves seemed oddly ho-hum after a while."

Darkshear and company have added a fascinating new aspect to the long-running Wing Commander RPG, The Edge of Chaos -- they plan to release a 3D Wing Commander Movie as the finale to a major RPG campaign later this year. Titled "The Long Cold Winter", a beautiful 6.28 meg teaser trailer is now available here.

HoTT found an interesting article over at CGW -- it rates Wing Commander II as one of the five greatest action games of all time...
A high-concept, summer-blockbuster space opera—that's the best way to describe Chris Roberts' magnum opus. There are those who feel that either the third or fourth Wing Commander games were the best that Roberts put out, but they're just plain wrong. WCII did what modern action games are trying to do: It fused narrative and action together into a tight package. It gave you a compelling reason to fly forth and tear those Kilrathi ships in battle. It made you care about its various characters, and then taunted you by killing them off. It also tapped into the inner Star Wars geek within, by providing one of the first opportunities to flitter around in space and blow things up. Hopefully, Chris Roberts will find a way to use current technology to replicate the experience, and not try to make any more movies.
