    Chris Roberts is the man known for some massive PC games. He created the Wing Commander franchise, as well as other notable titles like Strike Commander and, more recently, Freelancer. Unfortunately, he hasn't produced a game in nearly ten years. During that time, the market for such games has sadly dried up, and real stick-and-ethereal-rudder aficionados have been left without any flagship titles, turning their attention instead to community efforts like the Freespace 2 Source Code Project to keep their skills sharp.

    It appears our friend is back with something new.

    PS. The access code is 42, for the impatient ones. :)

    One of PC Gaming's Old Gods. I've played and loved all of his games.

    Can't wait to see what his return is bringing.

    Ooooooh yeah. You're looking at a Wing Commander, Wing Commander 2, Privateer, Strike Commander NUT.

    I EVEN BOUGHT THE ORIGIN FX SCREEN SAVER FOR MY WINDOWS PC.

    Honestly what I would want? Privateer (still set in the Wing Commander universe) but you can get out of your ship in FPS mode and go to bars and pick up space chicks.
