The new poll asks which briefing rooms were most memorable. They mostly have about the same items in roughly the same configuration, but the atmosphere and circumstances of the missions we faced in each varied quite a bit. They sure look darn cool all pictured side by side like this though.
Our old poll asked what series was being reworked for EA's Project Redlime. Wing Commander definitely won our tally, but little new information has surfaced since the poll went up to hint one way or another. System Shock and Crusader came in second and third, which suggested people voted a mix of what they thought the unannounced EA game actually was and partially what they hoped it would be.
In a recent update we touted the discovery of a rare and unusual 1993 Electronic Arts soundtrack CD containing tracks from many classic games... including several Origin titles and two Wing Commanders. We provided mp3s for Super Wing Commander and Privateer, but you asked for more! Per popular request, here are the tracks for the other Origin releases in the collection:
Now, here's the question - what is Track 9 ("Into One's Own") from? It's listed only as being from a coming attraction, presumably an unannounced game. Laura Barratt was an Origin composer who worked on Privateer, Strike Commander and Wings of Glory. I'm not especially inclined towards identifying music, but it certainly doesn't seem like the piece is from WoG, the only of the three games not represented by other tracks on the EA CD.
