A very excited KrisV reports that the Kinepolis Group (the largest cinema group in Belgium) now lists a September 15 release date for Wing Commander. Deep Blue Sea, also starring Saffron Burrows, is expected one week later. You can check out the release dates page for yourself here.
Fighter Damage Details
As of the E3 build, each fighter had their own individual damage characteristics. The Centauri Sentri had the lowest number of hitpoints, while the Narn Frazi was the proverbial tank. None of the fighters have individual damage areas as of this build. Although this strays from games like Wing Commander, where you generally have four damage quadrents, it does stay true to the game in terms of fighter to fighter combat. (Because beam weapons were not in the game played, the slicing of external surfaces were not witnessed.)(7.6.99)
I talked to LOAF again and he's sounding better. He's back home in Maryland right now. It may yet be at least several weeks before he can get back online, so still feel free to email something for him here.
