Wing Commander Saga

Saw this on Xplay then downloaded it for myself. For fans of the old Wing Commander games, a group of people have recreated the first game, plus created an all new campaign set after the third game using the Freespace engine. It took them ten years but it's now done and available for free download. I played the first two missions last night and it's a lot like I remember it. Feels a little weird because I don't have a flight stick anymore and the gamepad isn't quite the same feel.

Didn't take as long as I thought it would for that lobber to get hit out of the park.

I was gonna ask about this. I have never played any of those flight games with a flight stick so I wonder if it will "feel weird"... actually thought about buying a cheap flight stick just in case... I loved the WC games.
