Wing Commander will be on FOX this thursday 2000 hours on FOX on Brazil.See, South America isn't all bad.
Quinta feira, 20:00 horas no canal FOX.
NOTE: In Brazil, FOX is not an open channel, but rather a Cable/DTH/MMDS subscription TV that shows TV Series and Movies
Only extras get paid to sit around and do absolutely nothing. Extras and EA's game approving department. Yeah.
Today we catch a couple extra pilots on their way to the bathroom. Lisa appears to have just burned herself on some coffee in the background.
Another lineup of some non-descript pilots. Dispassionate Guy seems no happier even though he now has a drink.
As you can probably tell, I can't heap enough praise on this game. Sure, it has its problems, but all in all Origin have done an exceptional job of recreating the series, while maintaining all the aspects that have made it such an engrossing game in the past. The new cast is likeable, and the entire feel harkens back to the Tiger's Claw in the early 90's. Don't consider this as Wing Commander 5, as it's more of the start of a new era rather than a sequel. There's so much more I'd like to say, but I can't without giving away the great plot, another area Wing Commander has always excelled in.
One guy is really happy to be in Prophecy. The other guy couldn't care less. Guess which is which!
Amazon - 20 Feb 03All is still quiet on the Destination front, and it's beginning to look like the game will face a delay.

Dallas can't decide if he's an extra or not. At least we know he's every bit as expendable as the other people in this picture.
Hey all, Raptor here.You can read End of the Spiral here.
HTL continues with a story called "End Of The Spiral", a TCS Valley Forge story that follows on from the events of "The Downward Spiral" and "Further Down The Spiral." As you saw at the end of FTDS, the Valley Forge had been sacrificed in order to destroy a Nephilim dreadnaught. The survivors of the crew and the flight wing, as well as those on the other ships in the battlegroup, must now regroup and recover from that disaster. This story is jointly written by all the Valley Forge team, so please send any and all comments to them via the addresses at the top of the story.
On to the pictures of random people. Here we have (from left to right) a man with a big camera, Hawk, "Lisa", some guy who is either fixing a chair or has a foot fetish, and two pilots whose names we are never told.
As part of our ongoing changes to the Chatzone, we decided to get rid of the Chatzone! Or the name anyway. Yes, soon you'll be visiting the CIC Forums instead which is exactly the same as the Chatzone but with a different name. How modern.
The problem is we can't draw. Well, we can, but we're lazy bastards. Anyway, we need a new logo and since everyone loves a good photoshop contest, we're giving you the opportunity to design the new CIC Forums logo. Here's the details!
According to this thing there's a cop running around somewhere with no pants on. Luckily I'm law-abiding.
Dear Vega Strike fans,More information and download URLs can be found on the Vega Strike website.
We have completed the release at long last for all platforms. Currently linux users can get it by checking out the tag vegastrike_0_3_0 in the vegastrike and data repositories. Windows and Mac users please click to the right. I have added many features for you to enjoy: here's a list:
# If the cockpit jitters or the engine feels choppy press F1 a few times to turn off the 3d cockpit. Other than that no reported bugs :-)
# I have totally revamped and polished the engine to support per pixel specular lighting and much-refined gameplay.
# There are plot missions as well--be sure to check out the Heinlein, Callimanchus, Adams, and Niven systems for people you may need to visit.
# Support the Revolution--or crush it...it's up to you!
# You can now talk to people in the bars for plot missions and other interesting asides. Be sure to look carefully
# Thanks to Ken Suguro and PeteyG we now have a full Vega Strike score! This adds all sorts of beauty to Vega Strike!
# To make up for the gain in size coming from music we have jpeg support for textures
# You may hire wingmen or even earn some friends if you save the right people!
# You now have the ability to own multiple starships. Beware that shipping costs 6000 credits... but if a ship is stored in the same system it's free to load it up. Use this to your advantage--get a new ship early but use the old tested one for hard runs
# A new ship--the dryad merchant vessel--has been added
# A repair button has been added to help you fix up that vessel.
# You start docked. i have no idea why so many people requested this one...
# did I mention full musical score?
# Sound effects for the standard cockpit noises
# autodocking so you must not request clearence--just press d to dock
Vega Strike is a 3d OpenGL Action RPG space sim for Windows/Linux that allows a player to trade and bounty hunt in the spirit of Elite. You start in an old beat up Wayfarer cargo ship, with endless possibility before you and just enough cash to scrape to
Despite my best efforts I couldn't think of anything interesting to say about this picture.
Raiders - The upcoming CGI film based in the Wing Commander Universe, now has a new home!
It's now located at: http://www.theartofwu.ca/...
Be on the lookout for regular updates on the site once production starts rolling!
The Raiders project also needs a few good men willing to do some voice acting for characters in the movie.
If you have a high quality mic, and are interested in performing, contact Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A track had to be put in so an ageing Blair could be pushed around the Midway in a cart.
As you all know, DALnet is going through some very tough times. Day after day our servers suffer from crippling attacks while, behind the scenes, staff and employees at the companies who sponsor our servers, scramble to keep the service going for you, and to try and apprehend the criminals who are doing it.Until this clears up you can join us on a different IRC network. Connecting is easy. Type or copy/paste the following commands in the mIRC chat client:
Look out! Behind you!
The CAG practices her "upset with Blair" stare.
EB Games - 27 Jan 03What do we conclude from this? Well, not a lot. But if the game isn't out before the end of the month, that's a lot of people who got it wrong. We have no idea where those dates came from since Destination aren't giving anything away.

Anderson tries to get in the picture but fails. Very fitting since he didn't get in front of the camera much in game either.
Hey all, Raptor here.
After that interlude to look at what was happening elsewhere in the universe, we're now going back to the battle in the Loki system. HTL continues with part 15 of the Tiger Hunt series, "A Good Day To Die". When we left Loki, the Union's Battlegroup Valkyrie had been cornered in the Loki VI debris field by Nephilim forces. They had beaten off a massive attack, but their sister carrier had been lost in the fighting, along with several escorts and many dozens of fighter. This story picks up from there as the Border Worlders fight to survive. This chapter is written by yours truly, so please send any all comments back to me.
The story is at: ../ch149.htm
Ah, it's been too long since we had a photo with somebody smiling.
With its cinematic quality, clearly developed storylines and well-known actors, the Wing Commander series created a whole new genre within the gaming industry known as the "interactive movie." By 1995, the Wing Commander series had generated well over $110 million in revenues, and from 1990 to 1995, the series accounted for more than 60% of OSI’s revenue. In addition to selling more than 3 million units worldwide by 1995, the Wing Commander series won a record setting number of gaming awards. In 1990, Wing Commander was named “Game of the Year” by both Omni and Computer Gaming World. A year later, Wing Commander II was awarded similar honors, winning “Game of the Year” from Tilt magazine (France) and “Best Action/Adventure Game” from Computer Game Review. To date, the Wing Commander series has generated over $400 million in revenues.You can find out more here. Contrary to the original post, the PNR website is still online and still contains the teaser line about the upcoming Wing Commander television series.
Dekker apparently feels the need to prove that he still has two arms.
"We are a new MOD not for Wing Commander, but for OFP based on Privateer. We need modelers and texture artists although we are a mod for another game we will give people the finshed models to make a privateer MOD for wing commander (if they want to). E-Mail me at email@example.com. More info at www.OpFlashpoint.org "
If you found out that your character was going to die really early on, you'd look like this too.
Better late than never. Here's a picture of a top Confederation pilot doing a little charity work in uniform.
Kris is putting the finishing touches on our customary New Years poll. And here's the results of our latest outing.And Privateer has it with a bit over a quarter of the vote! WC1 came in second with WC4 in third. It's interesting to contrast this with our "Favorite WC Game" poll from years ago. Back in 1999, people rated WC4 their favorite with Privateer and Prophecy in second and third. WC1 came in sixth place. I wonder if people's sentiments have changed or if these are just fundamentally different questions. I do agree WC1 would be a good place to "restart" the series on the GBA, and Privateer would just be all-around awesome.
