Wing Commander III for free

Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger is being given away over on EA's Origin. Yes, you need the dreaded Origin application to get it.

EDIT: Well its a day later and I fired the game up. Good Lord, I forgot how bad the Midi music was and how blurry and choppy the CGI is in these older games. Brings back memories though. :lol:

I think that was the first multi-CD game that I owned.

Never played WC3, but I totally loved Wing Commander: Privateer back then. Visiting space stations and trading goods just really caught my imagination.
If people stick with you just because you have a Rolex on your wrist, you can bet losing them is as OK as losing an Invicta. And if they stick with you even if you only have an Invicta, losing them is as OK as losing a Rolex.

I still have my multi-CD WC III CDs stored away on the shelf. They really did shove those FMV equipped titles down our throats, didn't they ?

Ah, WC III. Some of that FMV work has a real '80s pr0n star in it.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
