Wing Commander: Darkest Dawn, Fan-Made GoodnessLast week, we previewed the launch of Wing Commander Saga: Darkest Dawn, the fan-built companion to Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger that's been in the making for the past ten years. We were excited for its launch. But now that the game is available, how'd the team do?

Let us illustrate it thusly. The game dropped on Thursday, we started playing Friday, and as of this writing (Sunday afternoon), our weekend chore list is still gathering dust on the fridge...

I downloaded this too, and I'm enjoying it quite a lot even though I haven't gotten too far. The AI is very well done, and you better be quick as they are on your tail fast. A plus is that your wingmen are actually useful without having to micromanage them.

Awesome job, and I agree, I'd pay for this.

Thank god I kept my Wingman Extreme joystick!

Huh, thought more of us well seasoned folk would jump on this.

Anybody else download it?

I loved wing commander sooo much! It was the reason for my 1st upgrade to a 386sx. I played all of them, all the way through, and had every expansion there ever was. I have kept them all as well. So I have all the soft, and boxes.

I don't have a pc up right now, but I will grab this when it is. But agreed, I believe something like this, is what is sometimes needed to kick companies in the butt, and make them aware of something they have ignored for too long. Well, I hope that is the case anyway. And sadly, I also have 2 collectors editions of WC3. And 4. I wonder if they would sell? Hehe... And force feedback was cool, when it was supported.
