MasterWandu has put together a tribute video titled "Wing Commander Through the Years" that chronicles some of the highlights from each of the main Wing Commander games and then teases some of the video that's been released for Star Citizen. Check it out here and let Wandu know what you think at the CIC Forums. Some of the material is sourced from Holovids, which is the CIC's movie repository. Check it out for all your Wing Commander video needs!
Please check out my Wing Commander through the years video: a mashup of Wing Commander I, II, III, IV, Prophecy and the new Star Citizen: Squadron 42 trailer from Chris Roberts! I just wanted to help create something to keep up the momentum and interest in the new Chris Roberts franchise! The timings to the music are not perfectly in sync, but good enough for now.
I'm no editing pro, and so it took many hours to source the footage (screen capture with DosBox/ wcnews holovids / youtube) and to get all the timings right! Would appreciate your comments and throughts on the vid. Let's really try and keep up the awareness on all our social channels!
Chris Roberts' AMA session on Reddit is happening right now. Sign up for Reddit and ask your questions here. If you want to see just Chris' answers, you can find those at http://www.reddit.com/user/CommanderRoberts.
Update 1: Reddit is down intermittently. Too many space sim fans or just a coincidence? The company website and Kickstarter are doing fine.
Update 2: @redditstatus "The site is down right now. It appears to be a network-related issue. We are investigating"
Update 3: Still slow but improving.
Update 4: All done!
Tune in today starting at 10 AM PST (1 PM EDT, 6 PM GMT) when Chris Roberts will be doing an AMA on Reddit. AMAs, which stand for “Ask Me Anything,” are a chance for Reddit users to interact directly with interesting figures. In the past the subjects have ranged from ordinary people with unusual jobs all the way up to a recent chat with President Obama! Reddit has been very supporting of Star Citizen already and we’re hoping that Chris’ session will help get word out about the crowd funding even further. So register an account and get ready to grill Chris about Star Citizen!
