    Thanks for pointing this out! I had no idea Wing Commander was in the works. I'll have my eye on that.

    While you're listing the Ultima Remakes, don't forget:

    The Titans of Ether - Ultima IX Redemption

    Man, I miss the old Origin games.

    am currently downloading the 1/2 gig U5 remake. looks really good, will let you all know what its like.

    edit: man, need dungeon Siege 1 installed - my disks for that are long gone....hmmm...hoping a mate of mine still has it and I can grab the original from him.

    edit 2: hehe, just ordered legends of aranna. only $13 or so, and there appears to be a few mods around for it now. So I should be able to get my money's worth out of it with the U5 remake too. :) IIRC, the first Dungeon Siege was better than the 2nd anyway. (ooh, I also ordered the Orange Box whilst I was at it, never played HL2).
