When my former housemate packed up his things and departed to enjoy another phase in his life, he lazily, but quite happily, bequeathed his Logitech Attack 3 to me. It's been sitting in my living room for a good while, and for a while I've started at it pondering its best usage.

I thought about firing up X-Wing Alliance or TIE Fighter for a while; maybe even taking on Elite: Dangerous or checking out the Star Citizen modules. But instead, partially spurred on by a stream from the developers of the latter, I decided to exercise my joystick skills in a different arena.

I went to a fan game, one that made use of the ageing but still robust Freespace 2 engine. I went to Wing Commander Saga and the world of Sandman.
