    Haven't downloaded it.
    Might be super cool, I loved Wing Commander, never got to play privateer.

    I wonder if this is legal?

    After a quick educational sample of Privateer I have to say that it's pretty amazing stuff, gotta love what these abandonware kids are capable of. A little complicated for my tastes.

    I remember doing everything in my power to get Super Wing Commander to work on my old performa, playing the game in a little 320x240 window.

    I really wish this series would come back, especially with the current status of graphics and whatnot.

    Dude I want to play Wing Commander 3 again. That game was awesome...

    Unfortunately it requires DOS (yeah its that old). I mean, people brought back Star Control 2 but that's b/c they ported it off the 3DO port (a port of a port if you will).
