The year has gone by very quickly, so it's nearly time for us to begin our annual recognition for outstanding Wing Commander Fan Project & Web Site of the Year. Before the event begins, you can nominate the contenders that you felt contributed the most to the community during the past eleven months. Feel free to check the News Archive to refresh your memory. Last year, Fleet Tactics and Wedge's Wing Commander Site took the top honors in the Web Site category. Standoff and WC Saga won in the Fan Project field. Shortly after we close nominations, we'll begin the actual voting process. Email firstname.lastname@example.org now to suggest the web sites, game mods or original projects that you believe helped make 2005 an exciting year for Wing Commander fans.
Wing Commander was mentioned among a small handful of movies inspired by video games at the Electric New Paper. About the only thing that makes this article stand out is its origins in Singapore. Somehow despite being an Asian publication, they continue to cite all the movies' total budgets and then only include revenues from one country. Unfortunately the article's perspective doesn't match its unique home, and it might as well have come from a random college paper. In its second week in theaters, Doom dropped to seventh place. So far it's pacing just over twice Wing Commander's take, which is more or less in line with its double-sized budget. As Doom begins to fall off the radar, hopefully we'll get a break from articles such as these. At least until BloodRayne.
