This is my first AAR since nearly three years, so please bear with me. This will be image- and videoheavy. I'm by all means a total beginner when it comes to videomaking and editing and had no experience with that whatsoever when I started. Therefor videoquality will be crappy in the first missions, but hopefully will improve as I get into these things.
That said, why Wing Commander Saga? The reason is plain simple, I was 12 when the original Wing Commander was released and instantly fell in love with it. It was so totally different from everything else I had played up until then, that I got imediatly caught and sucked right into the WC Universe. I have been following Wing Commander ever since and played each and every released title.
Since the last release of Wing Commander Secret Ops in 1998 four desperate years passed. But in 2002 there seemed to be a light at the end of the tunnel, a fan project was announced with the intent to develop a total conversion of the then open source declared engine of Freespace2: Wing Commander Saga
From the first announcement till the final release 10 years of desperation and inextinguishiable hope have passed until the 23rd of March this year, when WC Saga finally got released.
To share my joy with the communtiy I've convinced myself to dare the attempt of dedicating an AAR to this game featuring my first palytrough.
This will be a live AAR, which means that it starts today and will be updated everytime I will have finished a mission. Since I've a lot of obligations and only a certain amount of dedicatable time at hand, I hope you'll understand if this might not progress in a fast pace.
For those of us, who might not know the background of Wing Commander and Wing Commander Saga in particular, I think it's best to let the lead developer of WC Saga speak:
I will play through both campaigns "The Prologue" and "The Darkest Dawn".
I'll start with medium difficulty and will see where it takes me
