Major Milestone Demonstrates Community's Determination Update ID

The CIC staff is mostly laying low today, but we are celebrating a proud achievement as well! Yesterday marked ten years of continuous daily front page updates at wcnews.com. Back in May 2003, I never would have predicted how many cool and amazing stories we'd still have to share with everyone. In total since 1998, we've posted some 12,000 items in the news. In just the last few weeks, we've reported on the WC Movie's upcoming Blu-ray release, shown off a video of the 1997 WC FPS pitch, gotten a Kilrathi easter egg in the new Ultima Forever and reported that Wing Commander music will be featured in a live Austin Symphony Concert this fall. Those are just the 'official' news blurbs! The real meat of our regular update slate comes from all the amazing fan projects that Wingnuts are constantly undertaking. capi's RPG was released last week, more of Klavs' amazing 3D prints are available and new projects like Flat Commander, just to name a few, floor us with the dedication and ingenuity of the Wing Commander community. Here's to many more years of continued success!

While we're musing on the site, we'd also like to remind people to mark their calendars for August 10, 2013 for the CIC's 15th Birthday Party! It's also a big round milestone for the site at large, and this year falls on a Saturday evening/early Sunday morning, so people in time zones around the globe should be able to attend. Speaking of birthdays, today is Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts' special day! Happy birthday!

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)
