Forums member MannPower is trying to organize an Arena game night. This is your chance if you still need to get the Tiger's Claw achievement. You need to compete in a 16-player capital ship mission to earn this one. Let everyone know when you'll be available!

Hey guys; please participate in the poll. It'll help me to gauge when the majority of people are the most available for a weekly Wing Commander Arena game night.

I'll be keeping a killboard for every game I happen to attend - a chore that a volunteer could pick up in the event I cannot make it one night. I'll post the board standings here on the forums.

But first thing's first - lemme know what days you're available!

The Forums, #WingNut on IRC and the CIC Xbox Live Gamertag list are all good places to look for Arena players.

Point of Origin: Vol. III, No. 38 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Bad news - Strike Commander isn't selling as well as expected. This issue of Point of Origin (May 7, 1993) advances several theories as to why... but lukewarm sales for a game that the company spent multiple years worth of development money on can't be good news. Another interesting point here is the first big news about 3DO - previous issues included speculation and rumors, but we hear for the first time now that both Chris Roberts and Richard Garriott have 3DO projects on the schedule.

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!

  • The Public Eye mentions an article by Ellen Guon: "Former-ORIGIN-employee-and-now-EA-writer Ellen Guon is featured in an article in Writing magazine. She talks about writing for computer games and we even manage to get a Wing 2 screen shot in there. You take 'em where you can get 'em."
  • The Employee of the Month is Ana Moreno, whose name should be familiar to fans of Wing Commander IV. Her story mentions our favorite game: "I knew about Wing Commander from my brothers and thought this might be a fascinating place to work. I was right."
  • Misc. details a Privateer-related move - which is kind of strange, since everyone always associates Erin Roberts with the game: "Erin Roberts is making a jump to the Shadowcaster team. He'll be the ORIGIN point of contact for the project, freeing up Scott Russo to devote full time and talents to the much-anticipated Privateer."
