Arena Video Interview Update ID

Thanks to Goliath for reporting this! GameSpot has posted a new interview -- a video conversation with producer/lead designer Sean Penney! This seems tailor made for people who are worried that Arena won't live up to the series legacy. Quotes include: "Everyone loves Wing Commander, I certainly do. And we were excited about the thought of putting the Wing Commander IP with a 16 player action space shooter." and "It's an arcade game, so you want people to be able to just pick up and play it. But it is a Wing Commander title - it is a space combat game, so you want to add some depth to it. So it's pick up and play, but there's layers of depth to it."

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada

Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape

Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
