SWC Ship of the Day: Bengal Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

First the Tiger's Claw, and now this! Wait, this is the Tiger's Claw... it's just eerily familiar in a different way. Anyway, thanks to popular demand, here's the SWC Bengal...

The Kilr-ipoff Invasion Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Apparently sporting a heavy feline coat is all the rage this season -- the Kzin-rathi look is in-vogue! TC reports that both Wizardry 8 and the Shadows of Luclin addon for EverQuest will be featuring... well, Kilrathi...

First up, Wizardry 8 -- with this blurb from PC Gamer...

"An opening cinematic sets up the action: you're hired to escort a diplomat (who looks a lot like of the Kilrathi from Wing Commander) onboard his "magic flying vessel" to his home planet. On the way, the ship is attacked, forcing a crash landing on the world of Dominus. Then the game begins..."
And then EverQuest...
The new moon will also be the host to one of the game's other big features: a brand new race to play, called the Kerran. Jokingly described by the team as a "mystical space cat," the Kerran are a large, strong feline-type race. [Jeff] Butler said they were still working on balancing, but that in terms of abilities, Kerrans will most closely resemble barbarians. If you play as Kerran, you will start in Luclin, though you can freely travel to Norrath, where you'll be accepted by non-evil races.
And then, the pictures: Wizardry on the right, Everquest on the left.

Here's a pair quotes from a story at CNN that just hits a bit close to home...

The Space Commission report issued in December warned that the increasing reliance on space satellites is leaving the United States vulnerable to a "Pearl Harbor in space.

"There are nations out there that are hostile to us and they are in space. They have such weapons as lasers, anti-satellite weapons and electromagnetic pulse weapons and we have to be ready to recognize that threat," Smith warned.

Cats, the famous musical, is turning twenty, with a special photo call featuring the original cast... but what does this have to do with Wing Commander? Apparently Brian Blessed, Privateer 2's beer-guzzling religious figure, was part of said cast! Read all about it in this article at iWon.
