Pix is currently in the middle of an impressive undertaking. He's created "another" 'blog' dedicated to playing through Origin games. What began as an Ultima playthrough last summer has expanded to quite a few classic series. The writeups of his experiences are quite thorough and complete with interesting anecdotes and pictures. New entries in Pix's Origin Adventures can be found here. Scroll down to the bottom right of any page to see a category listing with links to numerous Wing Commander and other OSI games that he's covered so far.
In this blog, I’m going to attempt to play through all Ultima related games and every game ever published by Origin Systems in roughly chronological order starting with 1979’s Akalabeth through to Ultima 9.
I’ve been a fan of Origin’s games for years and went as far as collecting them all but have yet to play half of them at all, never mind getting to the end. There’s a grand total of 60 games and I’m expecting to take around a year or so to get through the lot.
Series S is the designation these documents give to the Simulator missions. As you can see, they're a much more complex plan at this point, featuring a grand total of twenty-one missions patterned after the training missions used in the Star Wars space combat sims.
These updates are thanks to John "Captain Johnny" Guentzel, who provided several CD image archives of material used by the Wing Commander Prophecy development team!
