Le_Ionisateur_Fou has created a video tribute to the mission that ended with the destruction of Kilrah. "Lancelot Flight" was pieced together from video included in the various versions of Wing Commander 3, so the resolution isn't very high, but it's edited well to cover Blair's last mission of the war. It begins with the introduction of the Temblor Bomb and Blair's treacherous run through the firey canyons on Kilrah. Ultimately the planet is destroyed, the Treaty of Torgo is signed and Blair finally gets a chance at peace. The accompanying music is a remix of "Corneria" from Star Fox by The Wingless. You can grab the 18 meg .wmv here.
The video shows the history of the Lancelot Flight, the attack on Kilrah and its consequences. I used HCl's wc movie player to extract videos. Each time I listened to "Godspeed" from Starfox, I thought it would be a great one for WC, so there it is now.
Isaac Alexander let us know about the new English language release of the Korean massively multiplayer space sim called Space Cowboy by Masang Soft. The game is built around ship customization and enhancement with minor RPG elements. Formations of ships can be coordinated and certain combinations create powerful effects. Space Cowboy has standard missions and support for large fleet engagements. A substantial portion of the game takes place in atmospheric combat. Controls are mouse driven like Freelancer, and different options for voice chat are also built in. The futuristic storyline is divided into phases. Episode II is currently unfolding with plans for the third under way. A small number of "main character" NPCs exist in the universe and interaction with them influences the story. Registration, downloading and playing the 600 meg game seem to be free. Korean readers can find a ton of information and additional screenshots at the Space Cowboy mgame community site.
