Secrets Of The Author Of Secrets Of The WC Universe Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Mat Tschirgi has once again put his interviewing cap on for his site E-Boredom, and has interviewed Mark Minasi, author of the unofficial WC guide book Secrets of the Wing Commander Universe. These days it seems that Mark prefers writing books about Windows Server and the like, but that hasn't stopped him reminiscing.
E-BOREDOM: What made the original Wing Commander so fun to play?

MARK MINASI: With Wing Commander, it eases you in really easily. The card that came with the game led you into the first mission. You had to pretty much blow things up, it was really fun. The missions got harder at a reasonable rate, that's what got me hooked.

The beauty of the original game is that it's not a mindless shoot-em-up. You have a particular mission that's not too hard to beat... The X-Wing games were so complicated I couldn’t even make it past the training missions. You had to balance the power between managing shields, weapons, and engines-- I just want to blow shit up!

You can read the full interview here. E-Boredom's previous interviews with George Olziey and The Fat Man are still available too.
