After taking the month of April off, we have a few more cool older magazine articles on Wing Commander. This one is quite a gem. The December 1995 Computer Gaming World cover story asks, "Wing Commander IV: Is it worth $12 million?" You don't have to answer that. In addition to the large spread in the middle of the mag, snippets in the beginning and end are Wing Commander related as well. There's even an Origin ad on the back cover. Don't see those too often anymore.
No series to date has managed to capture such a Hollywood feel and successfully combine it with such quality action. From moment one, Wing Commander 3 wowed us (and tons of other gamers) with its cinematic style. We expect Wing Commander 4 to do the same... We're also excited by the enhanced game engine, which will allow you more freedom in the heat of battle and give your wingmen more responsibility. $99.95 Origin
If you're planning to join us at DragonCon this summer, ticket prices go up in two weeks. Four day entry passes are $50 through May 15. Tom Wilson, John Rhys-Davies, Margaret Weis, and now Don Perrin will be there this year.
Don Perrin is a displaced Canadian now living in Williams Bay, Wisconsin as Vice President of Operations with Mag Force 7, Inc. Along with his life partner Margaret Weis, he is writing a series of novels in the Mag Force 7 series, the first hitting the shelf in April 1995. His love is games of all sorts, and now has two successful collectible game designs to his credit with Star of the Guardians Collectible Trading Card Game and Wing Commander® Collectible Trading Card Game.
Wedge followed up the last update with a list of other shots he has collected. You can find them here. I especially like Admiral Terrell's office for some reason, perhaps because it's a neat tie between the Privateer and standard Wing Commander styles.
