X-Wing Feature?

Post by gizmo1990 » Sun Sep 07, 2008 9:59 am

It's been mentioned that PC games will be getting more coverage finally in RG. If so could I make a case for an X-Wing article? The title was criminally under written in the recent Star Wars articles (okay it was about the franchise but imo X-Wing should have been more prominant) and deserves better.
In fact Tie-Fighter imho, remains to this day the best space combat game bar none.

Or how about a Lawrence Holland artilce encompassing his greatest achievements? Battle of Britain anyone? Secret Weapons? These games defined the PC era when they were released and I can't be the only one who thinks so...?

personally, I've had enough of reading about Star Wars games at the moment but that's not to say it's not a good idea, I love TF too.

Weeell, at least I can bask in the glow of knowing I'm not going mad. Apparently Edge have beaten you to it and have an article on Tie this month!

Shame I hate Edge.. :cry:

I cant stand Edge either. It reminds me of Empire magazine - Full of its own importance, snobby, narrow minded.

It was covered in the Star wars games, but I agree it would be nice to see it covered in greater depth and also covering it various add ons for it like Imperial Pursuit and B-Wing. I would also like to see Tie Fighter covered as well, and its add ons. They were great games. You needed a good analogue stick to get the best out of them. Maybe some coverage of other old DOS games (from about the 5.0 to 6.22 era) would be good. That was the time the PC showed that it had some capable hardware (along with soundcards and stuff).
