Wing Commander Themes Available for Cheap Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Wing Commander Arena themes for the XBox 360 have gotten a big price cut! They're available now for just 50 MS Points, which is down from 150 points originally. At the going conversion rates, this makes the price today just slightly more than 60 cents! That's an incredibly small price to pay for various Darket, Dralthi, Paktahn, Arrow, Rapier and Broadsword variants gracing your screen in beautiful 1080p resolution. Both theme packs are about 3 megabytes and can be purchased/downloaded from Arena's tab under Arcade games in the XBox Live Marketplace.

Note that the way themes are integrated into the background of the current XBox dashboard is a little different than when Arena launched. They now appear "on the horizon" behind the current menu selection, although full screen Wing Commander images also fade in and out during menu transitions. Check out how they used to look here. And how about those faction mottos under the item descriptions?! For the glory of Kilrah, the Emperor and the Empire! Long Live the Terran Confederation!

Differences a True Collector Would Love

Red-Jackal recently posted a neat 1993 Privateer advertisement from Computer magazine. We've shown it off before, or so I thought, so I almost passed it by. It is a little bit sharper than the one we have in the archive though, so I decided to take a second look. (2019-02-22)

Wing Commander Enters the Retro Zone

Pix recently came across a pretty neat article in the UK magazine PC Zone. I really like it's graphical layout with the Dralthis overflying the slick text. The author is a big fan of the WC series and uses it as an example for awesome '90s games that were outside the realm of his usual fare. (2019-02-19)
