Introduction

Let's Play Star Wars: Rogue Squadron!



Wait, hold up! Don't get too excited, as this is the PC version, also known as the "Why the heck am I not playing X-Wing vs Tie Fighter" edition. This version was released at the end of 1998, but it took a back seat to the N64 release. My memories of the game are all from the N64 version, and I only picked this up recently when it was on sale at GoG.com because, well, its good fun. Oh, and I rarely touch my N64 and its not plugged in and .

In any case, this LP will be a casual stroll through the game, aiming for 100% completion, or at least as much completion as is possible. I should note that, while the GoG version does a pretty good job, the game can crash at times, although this seemed most noticeable after a specific mission, but we'll get to that.



For the uninitiated, Rogue Squadron was pretty ground-breaking in '98 for consoles. It was a great arcade flight sim that had all of the star wars flavour with some solid gameplay. Missions are generally fast/action packed, with only one or two notable exceptions. It also has a few secrets that adds to the replayability. The PC version even has cheats, although there's really no reason to use them. As well, the videos presented feature commentary and no-commentary versions, for those of you who would rather listen to the various briefings and descriptions the game has.

So join Chaos Argate and I as well travel down the trench of nostalgia and enjoy the ride!
