Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers in the US today. Quite a few of our visitors come from around the world, but whether you're a Pilgrim or a plain old Wingnut, we all have a ton of new stuff to be thankful for this year. Traffic in #Wingnut could be a bit spotty over the next couple days, but feel free to stop by and hang out with fellow fans over the long weekend. Also if you missed the edit below, EA Replay's $5 sale price is now available online with free shipping and a limit of 3 copies.
This special edition of Point of Origin is 'live' from COMDEX, one of the most important computer trade shows of the era. There isn't much about Wing Commander... but as you'll begin to note here, attempts to sell the Origin FX screensaver have begun! For those unfamiliar, Origin FX included several Wing Commander modules... and even a small amount of new fiction in its manual.
A very special thanks to Joe Garrity of the Origin Museum for making this resource available and to Electronic Arts for sending them to him in the first place!
- "Media Vision also bundles the Underworld/Wing 2 CD with its fusion CD 16 Multimedia Upgrade Kit."
- "ORIGIN FX seems to be an up-and coming winner. Buyers and journalists who've seen it say that they think it will be a good seller. That means a lot when you consider the fact that other screen savers (such as Star Trek) are being debuted at this show as well."
Point of Origin
