BastichB 64K is kicking off a new series, called DOS Days, and he's chosen Wing Commander to inaugurate the first episode. This review is nice because it seeks to set the stage for what 1990 was like from both a pop culture and PC gaming perspective. The author played Space Rogue, but was blown away by Origin's next space game, Wing Commander. He credits the missions, music and interpersonal interaction for making it all so enthralling. There's also a shout out to all the great ports, such as the Sega CD version we mentioned in the news yesterday. They start to allude to the rest of the games in the series as well, but discussion on those will be mostly reserved for future episodes.
In this 1st episode of DOS days I jump back to 1990 and check out the original "Wing Commander" game.
