The Wing Commander movie will be showing on the Sci Fi Channel again next Wednesday, June 2. The fun begins at 11:00 pm. Speaking of good Wing Commander television, don't forget that Commissar's Wing Commander Academy DVD sets might only be available for a few more days. He had formatted the series to DVD with interactive menus and custom cases. Sets go for about $15.
A few people were happy to see Warren Spector was doing well when we met him at E3 a few weeks back. Thief (3) Deadly Shadows was released this week, and the reviews for it are absolutely amazing so far. There's some bad news coming out today however. The rumors are that Eidos has laid off a couple dozen Thief team members in Austin, since the game is complete. There are conflicting reports about Spector's status now. Some people would like him to stick with Ion Storm a bit to follow Thief's release, while others would love for him to get a fresh start with a new company. Mr. Spector seems like a super friendly and talented guy, so I could see him being upset if his fellow team members were suddenly let go. Hopefully everything works out well for him.
