After WC3 Success, WC4 Boots Right Up
Last week we saw Maiden Ariana upgrade a vintage computer in order to get Wing Commander 3 running. That one was a big hit, so she's moved on now to Wing Commander 4. I personally really like going through the install menus. They evoke so much of the anticipation of opening and installing a brand new game for the first time. WC4 was the first game in the series to have a fully graphical in-universe interface to walk you through the setup, and you usually only ever see it one time for obvious reasons, so it's a nice throwback to see here. Thanks to all the upgrades put in place for The Heart of the Tiger, The Price of Freedom just works in this case. A good chunk of the middle is rewatching the intro, and if watching a video of it playing on a 15" monitor leaves you wanting more, check out ODVS' remaster of that cinematic here. You can also follow Ariana's Twitch for some WC3/4 streams in the future. Thanks to Tarsus for the heads up!
Wing Commander 4 running flawlessly on actual vintage/retro hardware (no DosBox cheating here). Many more to come in this series. If you like what you see, please let me know below. I have a huge Retro collection and I am dedicated to sharing regular retro pc content here on this channel.
