Four years ago we reported on a weird Wing Commander song by a group named The Theta Project. Forums member PeteyG liked it a lot:
Back in the day, the CIC ran something on an mp3.com artist's WC-inspired tune. It is a telephone answering machine message describing the last mission of Wing Commander... set to techno music. The music is fun, and the extreme nerdish enthusiasm of the speaker really appeals to my inner geek. It's been sitting in the root of my Wing Commander music directory, lonely but occaisionally listened to, for these past four years.
It's pretty catchy. We've put a copy of the file on our server for you to download (3.6MB). Hit the discuss link if you have more information on the band.
I unfortunately haven't been able to find this on the Internet anywhere, or any contact information for The Theta Project. But I am certain that WC fans will appreciate hearing this again after a good 4 years.
Here's the first bit of news from ChrisReid down at the E3 Expo. Expect a lot more coverage when he gets back.
The expo here is going very well. Everyone is tired and bruised from running around all day, but it's a lot of fun. The Electronic Arts booth, at the front and center of the grand south hall, is impressive as usual. The central portion is a giant arena with next-generation games. There is a 360 degree projection of all their upcoming XBox 360 and advanced PC titles. and the oter areas highlight the new EA Sports and EA Games titles coming to current systems later this year.
There is a large collage of old EA titles outside the booth, though it's a small percentage of the games they've made over the last twenty years. There are noticeably fewer space sims on display this year. That's disappointing, but there have been a couple interesting ones. I've included one picture of Nanostray for the Nintendo DS. It's a scroller arcade shooter, but the graphics are presentation are very slick.
The internet access has been down at the hotel until now, so I'll be very anxious to get back to #Wingnut and the rest of the site when I get home. Hope all is well with you.
