    Well, the dude was a movie producer after Wing 5. Probably got a few bucks squirreled away to afford decent talent.

    I didn't even care.

    I didn't even care to watch the trailer.

    I didn't care to watch to know that I would already be on board with this shit.


    Just give it to me right now. Just whatever you got man. It's been too long since my last hit and and I need it.

    I will forever love Chris Roberts since he introduced me to Clive Owen in Privateer 2.

    Hell, we got to BE Clive Owen in that game.

    EDIT: Part of me hopes this doesn't require a joystick, but another part of me DEMANDS that it DOES.

    I was worried about the high requirements, but then I realized they're developing for technology that will be entry level by the time the game comes out.

    That's a lot of talk about technology and graphics and PC Master Race dickwaving. That's fine and all, but I want to hear more about the gameplay. As far as I'm concerned, the Wing Commander series didn't die because it wasn't pretty enough, it died because it got stale and boring to play. Nothing in that trailer convinced me that the gameplay has evolved or that there's any new interesting ideas.

    1) I hope this is Steamworks
    2) I hope this sells well, LucasArts notices it sold well, and is inspired to give us another XWing or TIE Fighter

    I just saw an article for this in the latest issue of PC Gamer and spent most of it drooling in anticipation.

    Nah, LucasArts will only give us an Old Republic game where you have to use the Force for all your fancy Anakin Skywalker maneuvers...

    On the one hand I'm psyched about this, on the other hand I remember the Wing Commander movie...

    An hour long panel from GDC featuring Roberts discussing awesome shit.

    Actually going by post times, Klyka beat me, probably because I was first posting about this in the space sim megathread.
