The hits just keep coming! Electronic Arts has now released the original Wing Commander (here redubbed Wing Commander 1) via their Origin service. Like the previous releases, Wing Commander is $4.99 and installs smoothly via the Origin launcher. You can purchase your copy here. Here's to hoping we see Prophecy, Academy, Armada and Privateer 2 soon! Meanwhile, GOG is offering the entire series (including extras, addons and in some cases OSX compatibility) for 80% off today only. You can find that deal here.
You may be the hottest pilot in the fleet, but this will cool your jets!
In Wing Commander™ you blast your way through the Vega Campaign. You’d better be as good as your reputation because the stakes are too high to play it safe.
Differences a True Collector Would Love
Red-Jackal recently posted a neat 1993 Privateer advertisement from Computer magazine. We've shown it off before, or so I thought, so I almost passed it by. It is a little bit sharper than the one we have in the archive though, so I decided to take a second look. (2019-02-22)

Wing Commander Enters the Retro Zone
Pix recently came across a pretty neat article in the UK magazine PC Zone. I really like it's graphical layout with the Dralthis overflying the slick text. The author is a big fan of the WC series and uses it as an example for awesome '90s games that were outside the realm of his usual fare. (2019-02-19)
