jbirdjavi caught a cool video that's today's highlight at onecoolthingaday.com. It's a nostalgia reel about the year 1990. About a minute into the clip, Wing Commander makes an appearance! The release of the first WC game was certainly one of the biggest things that happened to the world that year, so the retrospective wouldn't be complete without it.
Today's Cool Thing at www.onecoolthingaday.com is a 12 minute video called "Remember 1990". While it has a heavy focus on music and movies/tv, it also includes clips of news events and among other things, video games. At the 1:06 mark, there's a short clip of the original Wing Commander game!
