Announcing a Wonderful Wingnut Wedding Update ID

We've aged a little bit since the last Wingnut wedding.

PC Guide Reviews Wing Commander Prophecy Update ID

We conclude our series of old Prophecy reviews on another high note with this one-pager from the Spring 1998 issue of PC Guide. The reviewer deems Prophecy the "best Wing Commander yet" and is endeared by the variety of flyable craft and the "stunningly beautiful" 3D-accelerated graphics. Negatives are lack of variety in the missions and too little focus on game tactics. Overall, Prophecy scores a solid 5 on PC Guide's 6-star rating scale. The game also receives a "best buy" stamp of approval!

Thanks to Pix's Origin Adventures for these great scans! You can find the PC Format, PC Gamer and PC Home reviews in the archives.

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada

Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape

Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
