AD recently recut one of the Wing Commander Movie's featurettes clips with a sampling of George Oldziey's Wing Commander 3/4 music. Although the film's actual soundtrack is pretty great, this is still a neat trick to see how it changes the tone. Since the game music is so ingrained in people's minds, I could see how this might create something of a subconscious linkage to players' cockpit experiences. And whether it does or not, this is a pretty cool behind-the-scenes video that you might not have seen before, so it's definitely worth checking out!
This is the movie's making-of featurette re-edited from the EPK. The visuals aren't too different. Mostly I've changed to music to music from wc3 + 4 thanks to George Oldziey's lovely orchestrations and I've replaced the name title cards with WC1 style font.
I really love the movies score but this is just a fun experiment to see how it feels with the game music.

Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special
After seeing the Spanish WC2 that Christian Klein recently acquired, the next natural question was whether DROSoft had also localized the Special Operations. The answer is yes, and it comes in an awesome double pack just like the Spanish Secret Missions! Both are in the same box with the game summaries translated side-by-side on the rear of the packaging.
