We've been tracking the Movie status in Israel over the past month with a bit of interest. It's an odd situation of sorts. The DVD went on sale and the video went up for rental about four weeks ago, but there were indications that one or more theaters would be showing it at the end of February. And nobody seemed to notice (or told us they noticed) our February 30 Up And Coming date for its release. :) If anyone has seen Movie posters in theaters or something similar recently, we'd like to hear it.
I don't think I've seen a single X: Beyond the Frontier review that's not mentioned Privateer in it. ATFW found a couple more at GameCenter and Daily Radar. You can find the actual articles here and here. One thing of note is GameCenter's reference to the "often-overcredited Wing Commander: Privateer." If anything, Privateer gets *under* credited in more often than not. The original Priv game has received "favorite Wing Commander game" status in at least one prestigious Gamespot poll, and despite its incompatibility with any flavor of Windows it's still a big seller on eBay. And it looks that the Privateer subseries will be what carries Wing Commander in the next few years. It certainly deserves all the credit it's received. This isn't the first comment of this sort I've read at GameCenter, but to each his or her own I suppose. Anyone agree or disagree? Send it to our mail bag.
Then you shouldn't be a parent! In fact, if we discover that your offspring doesn't possess at least THREE of our posable figures with optional accessories, plus at least one of our horrendously overpriced poorly manufactured ThunderKillaCars, then we're going to send the Social Department round to your habitation... tomorrow! Buy one today, or your child could be in the care of deranged individuals of dubious sexuality and religious denomination by next week. Crecheco. We care.
