The CIC has a full-body pic of the new Midway...wtf? It looks...evil.
EDIT: And reading about people's thoughts on it in the CIC...creepy how much they're falling for this game. And one of LOAF's comments was interesting...

That's just the thing, this is far above and beyond anything that would be possible on the Super Nintendo. If that's what you really think, you're missing a huge part of what Wing Commander Arena is. All the high definition screenshots, positive first-hand previews, multiplayer details and such should make this apparent. This video interview/transcript we posted today does a good job of starting to get into this. What few screenshots and videos are available now also should give you a good idea of all the research EA did to get things right in a Wing Commander sense.
Oh my god! It's better than what could have been done on the Super Nintendo! Bow down and praise!
On top of that...it looks like they missed a huge chunk of research. Namely that Wing Commander was, you know, 3D
NOTE: This comment was not supposed to turn this thread into a LOAF-bashing-fest. I was just pointing out something that I found was funny.
