    Metal Jesus of MetalJesusRocks is back with another Wing Commander video, and this time he's here to do a rather comprehensive overview of the entire series. Anyone can cover WC1-4 and Prophecy on YouTube, but MJR goes further with coverage of expansion packs, Academy & Armada, the Privateers, Super Wing Commander and Kilrathi Saga. He even has both the regular and Premiere Edition of WC3, SNES & Sega CD ports of WC1, and both standard and Gold Prophecies. Last, but not least, Arena and the Movie get nods at the end. He's been at this for nearly a dozen years and has half a million YouTube subscribers, so it's really great to see such a prominent internet celebrity professing his love of Wing Commander in front of such a vast audience. Check out the new video below, and you can find his WC4 review here.
    For many gamers, the Wing Commander series was our Star Wars for the 1990s...Its mix of space combat

    We've got a new poll out today that asks which of the the galactic sectors in Wing Commander is your favorite. This obviously isn't an exhaustive list, and there are some omissions like the Landreich or Hari Sectors that have quite a mystique about them, but we went with eight mainline areas that are particularly noteworthy. Sometimes sectors are short-hand named after the stars and quadrants within them, so if you're looking for Antares or Deneb, you can find them within the larger Epsilon cluster. After you select your favorite, hit the comment link and let us know why you picked that one!
    The previous poll asked how long you've been coming to the CIC. More than a quarter of you have been around since the our grand opening in 1998 - or earlier - and another quarter have been with us since the turn of the century. There's quite a few old timers still in the mix! However, about one in eight visitors

    LOAF was poking around in Wing Commander 2's background files and discovered a hilarious easter egg that would ordinarily never be seen by the player. The game frequently uses a red and green communications interface for dialogue sequences between a fighter and larger carrier or base. A small rectangle on the right features a graph intended to depict signal strength or something like that. However in the base art file, the talking head is blank and the graph spot has a button labeled "DONUT TOUCH." Origin definitely had a sense of humor back in the day!
