    i just saw this posted on another site, huge wing commander fan, but to be honest, i started off with wing commander 3 and played all the games after that. loved them all! plus i think it was V that had glide graphics so i could use that nice voodoo1 8mb card of mine

    good times.

    can't wait to play this one!

    Developers are afraid of the monopoly of the X series. The only good games in the genre at this point are fan made (http://scp.indiegames.us/ Freespace yeoooo!!)

    Space games where the shooters in their hayday but seem to have been supplanted by ground-based, warfare shooters.
    I'm kind of surprised that no one has tried to develop multiplayer space games (not MMO, but server based team style). Perhaps they feel the market is too niche and the ROI would not be sufficient enough for something like that. (shrug)

    Looks like a Freespace 2 mod gone standalone, hopefully we can update the graphics similarly to the Freespace Source Code Project
