Wing Commander fans are constantly impressing us with their creativity. We love seeing what Wingnuts will come up with next. 'Michael Lochlann' recently debuted a new rock mix of the Wing Commander 1 theme oven on his soundcloud page.

Microsoft Talks Backwards Compatibility

written by Bot at Wednesday, April 16th 2014, 8:00am

Reports from last week's Microsoft Build developers conference note that the company is looking into backwards compatibility for the XBox One. Such prospects still sound like a bit of a long shot, and only about half of original XBox games were compatible with the 360, but this does provide a tiny glimmer of hope for extended Arena longevity.One of the developers looking into this is none other than Frank Savage, who was the director of game development for Wing Commander 3 and other Origin titles.

Game Archaeologist Explores Wing Commander Online

written by Bot at Tuesday, April 15th 2014, 7:03am

Massively has published an article that recaps various attempts to create a massively multiplayer Wing Commander game. As the piece largely pulls from the CIC's archives, there's not really any new information, but it's good to see the material collected and republished for more to see. That's why we put it out there!

What's Next for Wing Commander?

written by Bot at Monday, April 14th 2014, 5:08am

Over the weekend, Chris reflected a bit on recent events and kicked off an interesting discussion on the future of the Wing Commander franchise. The last 10 to 15 years haven't been particularly exciting for space sim players, but the incredibly successful Star Citizen funding campaign has shown that genre still has a lot of life left in it. What shape and direction do you think the next Wing Commander release will take?

That time of the year

by Zhe Boss (Saturday, December 21st 2013, 1:53pm)

Damn... Well, its THAT time of the year. Sitting home near the fireplace, browsing the web, doing absolutely nothing. And then, boom, it strikes me. I'm a senior, what the heck am I going to do with my life? I've been browsing colleges, academies, all kinds of schools looking for something that may poke my interest. So far, just one. IT Academy. Enough choices, perfectly balanced studies plan, and what I was looking for the most, certificates that are valid worldwide. Now don't get me wrong, the ...

Say Hello to My Invisible Friends

by Horus Hotepsekhemui (Wednesday, September 4th 2013, 2:29am)

I was on my way back from a voyage to Banysia, and was going through Kinak when the tade Lane ahead of me showed signs of travel.
Since I didn't see any ships in front of me I was a bit perplexed at the activation of a trade lane for what seemed to be, no reason at all.

I exited the trade lane and saw nothing about, so I docked with the gate and went to Assris.

Mortem et renascentiam

Danger Will Robinson, Danger!


Warning, Warning!..The klaxon sounds...Core Meld Down is Eminent!

Just my luck, three weeks out in deep space and this happens - Systems Down, processors off line, controls aren't responding!
Suddenly everything went dead and there I was a drift in Space, no way to navigate, just an emergency backup beacon, and hope someone will find me.

Diary of Ajay. "Returning to the Source".

Before fourth wall establishment.
This is a pure fiction, on-station junk, lot of headcanons, blah blah blah, less of actual events. You've been warned.

-*Yawn* Oh, my head...
I reached my glasses, put them on and turned on nightvision mode - it was dark and I needed to find a switch. Reaching it and beginning another morning. After 30 minutes I was ready to get to cockpit ant take off. I grabbed my electronic pad and checked my mail account input.
