BREAKING NEWS: Arena Achievement Graphics Revealed Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Xbox 360 Achievements has posted the Achievement graphics for Wing Commander Arena! You can find them here. For those unfamiliar with the Xbox 360, achievements are electronic 'badges' won for completing various feats in a game - similar to the medals in the original Wing Commander. The Arena achievements themselves had already been published, but the badge graphics themselves are all new. They're fantastic, full of old school Wing Commander references... check out the medals and the familiar Kilrathi symbols! This is also another strong suggestion that Arena's release is imminent - with some exceptions, achievement graphics generally appear mere days before a game is launched.

Retro Game Connect has a new episode, and it's all about Wing Commander 3. RGC is a show that we can really identify with - just a couple of nerdy guys talking about the good old days of classic gaming. This is their 184th episode, and they're actually new to The Heart of the Tiger. (2019-02-23)

Differences a True Collector Would Love

Red-Jackal recently posted a neat 1993 Privateer advertisement from Computer magazine. We've shown it off before, or so I thought, so I almost passed it by. It is a little bit sharper than the one we have in the archive though, so I decided to take a second look. (2019-02-22)

Wing Commander Enters the Retro Zone

Pix recently came across a pretty neat article in the UK magazine PC Zone. I really like it's graphical layout with the Dralthis overflying the slick text. The author is a big fan of the WC series and uses it as an example for awesome '90s games that were outside the realm of his usual fare. (2019-02-19)
