We Love a Parade Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Sgt_thompson has come across a YouTube from last year's Dragon*Con Parade. At the vanguard are... us! To prove that we really do exist, you can see the CIC crew walk by a camera... followed by some Knights, Klingons on Bikes and Tasha Yar (or: Sela). Dragon*Con 2007 starts at the end of next month, and all the usual suspects will be there - our enthusiasm bolstered a thousand-fold by the release of Wing Commander Arena. Come on down and chat timelines and space fighter maneuvering drives with us! The parade video is available here.

It's the Physics, Stupid Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Kotaku has posted a review of the Ageia PhysX physics card. Why is this Wing Commander news? Because the writer likens it to purchasing a sound card to hear Wing Commander Privateer talk:
I still remember the day I ponied up for a sound card. It was for Wing Commander Privateer. Before that game released a speech pack I saw absolutely no reason to spend my money on sound. How absurd, I thought, why would I want to do that. But then the voice pack hit and I was at the store buying both a sound card and the pack.
The idea of a separate 'physics card' in a computer is kind of interesting - and certainly suggests a movement back towards the days of PC Gaming being a hobbyists game rather than a mass market enterprise. We can only hope someday we'll be realistically dodging asteroids generated by similar devices in a future Wing Commander game...
