The Forums Have Always Been Heavily ContestedEA Replay, the first Wing Commander release in three years, is scheduled to ship! Lucky fans should begin to receive copies the next day -- and everyone will have a chance to own it by the end of the week. In honor of all this, we've put together a quick contest . Earlier today, I composed a few lines about my experiences with Wing Commander SNES and what I think EA Replay means for the future of the community here. An excerpt:
Now, it's your turn -- and it's 9th Grade English class all over again! Simply post to that thread 'What EA Replay means to me'. Maybe you believe it's a new hope for the community, maybe it reminds you of the good times you've had with Wing Commander in the past... tell your story! As long as your entry is over 100 coherent words, we'll give you a forums avatar... and, more importantly, the very best entry (as decided by the CIC Staff) will be rewarded with a free copy of EA Replay! Be quick -- you only have twenty four hours! The winning entry will be posted in the news on Wednesday, November 15th. Good luck, pilots!
My PSP, entirely unused since its extravagant purchase in September, will soon join Prophecy GBA as part of my everyday kit. When I discuss Wing Commander with passers by, as I often do, I will now be able to flash them the greatest example of the series at a moments notice.
Fans can relive the classic wherever they go -- talk to Paladin on the bus, tangle with Krant in the park. What's more, they can show Electronic Arts that there is a strong interest in the series. I dream, hopefully, of a Replay in every pot and two in every garage. As Namco has rebranded Galaga and Pole Position across the world, so too might EA with their set of new classics. Let us see the package for the 360 Arcade, the Wii Virtual Console, the Nintendo DS and the PS3. Who can help but be amused at the thought of plugging one of those stand-alone game controllers into their television and enjoying Wing Commander?
