joecarnahan: awesome

Whoa, a Wing Commander community? Awesome. I have no idea what I would even want to discuss in a community about WC, and yet I feel obliged to join just as a show of support.

After all, I'm someone who recently found his old Privateer CD and went and found a computer and put Windows 98 on it (set up to boot straight into DOS mode) just so that I could play it. I almost never play video games anymore, but the WC games are still my all-time favorites.

That being said, I do have to admit that I've only played WC I (with secret missions), WC II (with special ops), Privateer, and part of (I didn't beat it) WC III. Oh, and I had a copy of Armada for a while - I don't even know what happened to that, now that I think about it. I've messed around a bit with Parsec and Vega Strike, two open-source space-fighter sims, but I've been annoyed by technical issues with both of them and haven't had the patience to stick with them and figure them out. I still have my floppies from WC I and II (including WC I on 5 1/4" disks!), but I think that at least one disk each is corrupted out of those two sets.

Oh, well. Anyway, good times, great games!
