I dunno. Even though I do have a rarely-used account on Origin, I’d rather pick up Wing Commander III from GOG.COM.
While I personally consider WC3 to be the weakest of the original series (Prophecy, Academy, etc. don’t count) both in gameplay and storytelling, it was still a fun game for its time, the first “true” Wing Commander (meaning: not counting Armada) with actual 3D models for ships, and the first with actual actors doing their best to emote on green screen. And Tom Wilson – well, the guy’s just awesome in general, but he makes a great Maniac.
