A few years back there was a group that remade Ultima 5 then there was the Ultima 6 project. Both are really quite good and very enjoyable for those of us that loved that series in the 80's and early 90's.
I played all the WIng Commander games and I am really happy to see that there uis a remake. I also can not wait.

If Duke Nukem Forever is any indication of the quality that comes from "10 years in the making" this is going to be shit. Double shit because it wasn't even made by people getting paid to do it. Linux is proof that you don't get very much quality (I didn't say reliability) from stuff "made by fans".

not in the same league. This is much better... been playing the early build for a couple of years now. If you are a fan of the original WC, this one is not to be missed.

"We are thankful that they are permitting us to do this"

Well to be fair, nobody is letting them do it. They're just doing it and hoping that there aren't consequences. Wasn't it EA that purchased Origin? I'm not so sure that they're that benevolent of a company.

Actually, Mark Hamill did more than just voice overs for WC III - he was in the game. WC III had a lot of FMV sequences shot on green screen. Also, porn actress Ginger Lynn was one of Mark's co-stars. Come to think of it, that game had a lot of well known actors in it.

Holy crap! Do they even make joy/flight sticks any more. I might need to pick one up.

Also played every game in series. And by every game, yes that means even Academy and Armada. Dude, even have the novels.

I can't believe they finally finished this game. I was watching for the release of this 5 years ago and gave up on it ever actually happening. This is great, I can't wait to get it!

... the movie sucked!

Played them all! BIFF doing Maniac was GREAT!

Hope they don't force it shut, well, at least till I d/l it!

"none of them are doing anything to shut the project down."

Yet. That's because it's been virtually invisible during its entire development. Now that it's "gone mainstream," (this is the fourth site in as many days I've seen it reported on), you can expect a C&D any day now. This is EA we're talking about, after all. And Chris Roberts isn't exactly an all-round nice guy, either. "Egomaniac" comes to mind.

i played the original games, and let me tell you, back then, on the computer, that was some awesome story telling in a video game.

all i can say now is,

oh man oh man oh man oh man...... ITS STARTING UUuuuUPPP!

This is why I love PC gaming. I can't wait for the 22nd.
