Time to kick some Kilrathi butt. Wing Commander Saga launches

Back when I was a kid, in addition to walking to school barefoot, uphill and in snow, BOTH WAYS, I also had the responsibility for keeping the Galaxy safe from the Kilrathi menace in my Rapier II.

Now you can relive those halcyon days of Wing Commander via The Wing Commander Saga, a free remake of the much-loved (by me at least) series.

They say the game was ten years in the making, but the most surprising aspect is that EA hasn’t squashed it like a bug. I haven’t tried it yet (it’s downloading now) but if I were you I’d grab it while the grabbing is good. EA seems to be aware of the project but they are carefully not acknowledging it, either for or against, at this time. Who knows how long that will last?
