Another Game UO'll Never Play Update ID

Reports several days ago indicated turmoil at EA.Com -- this has now been confirmed: Origin has now cancelled Ultima Online 2 and Harry Potter, and laid off 85 employees -- including President Jack Heistand, the man who cancelled Privateer Online. They plan to focus on supporting UO!Live rather than attempting to compete with themselves -- something that they should have figured out a year ago. Best of luck to any former-Origin people reading this... you all created an impressive looking game, it just couldn't make up for EA being really dumb.

On a personal note: Don't brag about this, people -- it's not good news for us, and the Ultima Online fans were nothing but kind to us when our game was cancelled. Lets show them that same level of respect...

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)
