See it in France Update ID

Today's the day Wing Commander was to be released in France (useless fact: I used to live in Aix-en-Provence)... is there anyone out there who can drop us a line and let us know whether or not it was released?

It's FINALLY Here! Update ID

Brace yourselves... after months of waiting the coolest possible thing you will ever buy is finally available to order! I speak, of course, of the Pilgrim Cross, which is now featured at Tuscany Trading Company -- and, get this, it's only $36! Buy it now! Have it in time for ten days from now! (Oh, thanks for delivering this news, Vaaseul.)
This authentic reproduction features a cast metal handle intricately detailed with gold color accents and a 4-7/8" 420 stainless steel blade that can be displayed in the fully extended position, mounted on the black lacquered plaque, or removed to wear the cross on the stainless steel neck chain included. This knife is officially licensed and each one includes a certificate of authenticity.

DVD Review Update ID

Well, I went against all odds and grabbed a copy of Wing Commander DVD from Circuit City today (and a shout out to my pal Samcat for making that possible). Here's my review...

Good: The video quality is far and away superior to that of the VHS version -- in particular, the CGI sequences look incredible. The interactive menus (by B1 Media are excellent! They're very animated -- very cool. The DVD's paper insert includes (in addition to the usual cast list) small cast bios (although Paladin's photo is wrong -- they used Gerald instead!).

Bad: At a list price of $34, this is an expensive disc... and although I wasn't expecting them, it would have been wonderful to have the extra scenes thrown in. That would have made the price more than worth it, and have given us a chance to decide whether or not it was confusing. Maybe if it sells well enough we'll see a special edition...

Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers

Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)

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)
