Wing Commander has always been exceptionally popular in Germany, moreso than in many other English speaking countries (thus German translations of many games, books and so on). Shagrath and Rylex quickly translated the advertisement from yesterday. Laserschwert and Malar also noticed that there were some typos and the ad was probably not made by a native German speaker.

Happy Father's Day
Many countries celebrate Father's Day today, and we know a lot of Wing Commander fans have recently become dads out there. My little one just turned 16 months old, and I'm happy to that see she grabs a controller and starts pushing buttons whenever she gets a chance.The CIC is more of a news site than a blog, but it's also a community hub more than anything, and it feels right to share this personal story with the community.

The Attack Begins... Soon
There's tons of great Wing Commander fan projects out there, but it's not every day that we get a teaser for a new one. FekLeyrTarg has had a hand in quite a few different endeavors over the years, and his latest will be a new short fan film. Projects like these have been proposed a number of times over the years, but we haven't seen very many come to fruition. (2018-06-16)
