The Upper Memory Block Podcast is a neat audio show that profiles awesome games from the DOS and pre-Windows XP era. They've covered almost 90 classic games in their four year history. One of their very first episodes covered the original Wing Commander. Joe, the creator, is a huge WC fan and it's just great to hear him gush about how fantastic the game is. It reminds me of the types of conversations I have with Wingnuts when I am fortunate enough to bump into them in real life. While this type of recording doesn't really share new information, it's always a fun trip down memory lane. He spends a good amount of time discussing the game's immersion factor, then moves on to gameplay and finally technical aspects and history. The segment is over an hour long, and the WC1 discussion begins about 8 minutes in. And if you like it, UMB also covered Wing Commander Privateer last year, which is another fun romp through the Gemini Sector. The Priv experience begins about 13 minutes in and once again covers the atmosphere, gameplay mechanics and background. There's also coverage of Righteous Fire and Privateer 2. You don't see a lot of podcasts out there that discuss The Darkening and he has some real problems with it, but it's still a welcome addition. Looking forward to the future, UMB is considering putting together a comparison between the PC and console ports in the WC series, which would be pretty neat!
