Relive Fall 1996 All Over Again Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Kris tells me that we have 700 gigaquads of unused bandwidth this month, so now's a great time to grab a file or two. The Wing Commander Academy television show is our single most popular download, and each month we hear about new people who are discovering the series for the first time. Newcomers might want to study the viewers' guide to determine what order they want to watch the episodes in. We have also collected a large amount of background material for the show, which you can check out here. When you're done going through all that, visit the Origin Museum to read the printed series bible and analyze the draft scripts that have been made available.

Multimedia Entertaintment Conference Highlights Wing Commander Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

The Hollywood and Games Summit is taking place today at the Beverley Hills hotel in Los Angeles. The event "celebrates the collaboration between the two most compelling modern art forms" and includes presentations from various industry professionals. Neil Young, vice president and general manager of EA in Los Angeles co-hosted a discussion with the vice president of 20th Century Fox about how to identify decision makers in the industry, what they are looking for, and the best way to express a project. However it was during the keynote speech from Paul Anderson "How to Successfully Blend Game and Film" that Wing Commander received some air time. Anderson, director of such classics as Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil, displayed a video presentation of the history of films based on games in the form of a montage of clips from various movies. A representative from GameSpot covered the speech in full.
The first scene was from 1993's Super Mario Bros., starring Bob Hoskins as the titular jumping plumber. Then it was onto the Scott Wolf epic Double Dragon and then the 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme opus Street Fighter. A clip of Anderson's own 1995 project, Mortal Kombat, was next, followed by its sequel. Next up was Wing Commander (1999), featuring Matthew Lillard in a stark-blond dye job.
