I can't speak for everyone, but I lurk here a lot and only come out when someone digs up the old WC corpse to rape it a little bit. WCA looks like a fun little online shooter, but it's far from the 21st century coming of Wing Commander. Where's our first-person space combat sim? WHY have these gone out of style?
What the hell is wrong with you people.. Arena is the fun, action-packed, fast paced, and great looking Wing Commander game everyone's been waiting for for the last ten years. Being top down doesn't make it any less of a game (just look at the Escape Velocity series). Hell, it doesn't even pretend to be the next big main series game you're so god damned afraid it's raping. It's just a fun multiplayer game set in the WC universe. Why the hell is it that when czacen makes a Howeworld mod based on WC, or when AD did his Half-Life thing, everyone went "OMG, DiFerant WuNg Coomnader, hAuw cul!!!!!11!", but when EA makes a fun multiplayer online arcadeish shooter set in the same universe, you all deceide they're raping the game cause they hate you so much. It's plain stupid.
