The original developer of Wing Commander, Roberts Space Industries, ran by Chris Roberts who has essentially disappeared from the development scene... until now has announced their new title. Star Citizen, a very awesome looking Space Simulator that relies on CryEngine 3. The game is relying on crowdfunding, and while unfortunately asking a large amount of money looks to hold an amazing amount of promise. As a few of the videos on that web site imply, the space simulator is a seemingly dying breed, and good ones are extremely few and far between. This game is going to be PC exclusive from what it seems, as, per Chris Roberts himself "I chose PC because I feel the PC is the most dynamic and powerful platform and I feel PC gamers don't get the respect they deserve." As PC gamers ourselves, we thank Chris Roberts for stepping up to our plate, albeit 10 years later, but thank you!

Today, September 14, 2012, Black Mesa Source launched. Many Half-Life gamers have been waiting for this to come for quite some time. Black Mesa is a complete remake of Half-Life in the Source Engine, with all new models, sound effects, voice acting, and animations. Of course, due to it's huge amount of anticipation and it's 8 year development, it promptly crashed all of it's download mirrors, including the link to the torrent tracker it set up.
While you can only play up to Lambda Core, this actually gives about 8 hours of gameplay to Black Mesa: Source, and excludes the Xen universe, however, they have already announced that they will release the Xen universe as soon as it is done.
Also, thanks to the popularity, tenaciousness, and quick thinking of reddit users, it is still possible to download the game, a few have also set up additional trackers.
