Default Wing Commander Comes to XBLA!!!

As a fan of Wing Commander going way way back, I so can't wait to get my hands on this game.

That's exciting news. I hope this leads to a new next gen Wing Commander game for 360. Other than Battlestar Gallactica, which didn't exactly get great reviews, I can't think of any other notable games like this on a conspole in years.

16 players sounds fun, but I can't wait for the day a Wing Commander type MMO might be possible. Think of it? A universe populated by fighter pilots who can take off from carriers or bases and fly from one area to another, fight the enemy, maybe even walk around the carriers hanging out with other players in the mess hall like in Wing Commander.

In the meantime, this sound fun. I hope the trash talking element remains from the original... furball!

Ya, I saw those. I bet it will still be fun though. It reminds me of an online game I used to play a couple years back. At least they didn't make it look a like a port by naming it the same as another title. (I was thinking of Wing Commander Armada at first.) If anything, I'll buy it just to show EA there is still interest in the franchise.

That's lame. They could have kept the player in the cockpit and it still could have been an arcade game. That looks like an enitrely different experience from Wing Commander.
