DVD Reviewer Takes A Look At Academy
Vermin tipped us off about a video review of the Wing Commander Academy series on DVD. Zaranyzerak is new to me, but it looks like he's got a cult following in the videophile community. He shares quite a bit of information about the set and praises it for its epic story arc and faithful attention to the series' backstory. Playthroughs of video games have gotten really popular on services like YouTube and Twitch lately, but you still don't see nearly as much attention to the peripheral elements of the franchise like this. Academy is an underappreciated gem, so really we're glad to see it on stage here (despite the hilarious typo in the name). The set is also still on sale at Amazon for a whopping $8, so if you're not an owner yet, don't miss out!Update: Zaranyzerak stopped by the CIC Forums to explain the "Wind Commander" title. As a purveyor of obscure headline in-jokes myself, I can appreciate the effort!
As for the title, it's actually very deliberate. When I do update videos like this, I like to keep my latest acquisitions a bit of a surprise, so the titles are often a play on words relating to the titles I'm talking about. In this case it was "Wing Commander Academy" and "When the Wind Blows" So I thought "Wind Commander" was a fun little mix of the two. And of course it baffled everyone....oh well!
