There is a thread over on the GOG.com messageboards where there is increasing evidence that LucasArts games will be coming, maybe as soon as tomorrow. There are supposedly a total of about 30 games due to be released over time but the initial group will consist of:

Star Wars: X-Wing Special Edition
Star Wars: TIE Fighter Special Edition
Sam & Max Hit the Road
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Personally, this is incredibly exciting. X-Wing and Tie Fighter are no brainer purchases, as well as the Indy game. I would assume that The Dig and Full Throttle will be coming later, which are two more must-haves to me.

Very happy for this. Would love to play X-Wing/TIE Fighter/Alliance again. Day of the Tentacle and Full Throttle also need to be included. I'd also be happy with Outlaws.

And I'd love love love Night Shift to be included but know that's unlikely - particularly the Amiga version. Never understood why that one didn't get remade or put on phones.

Lots of good stuff there!  I think this shows that the Disney acquisition was actually a good thing, as they realize the inherent value in older properties and are finally doing the obvious thing.

I'm most excited for Sam & Max Hit the Road.  That is one of my all-time favorites and still one of the funniest games I've ever played (at least according to my memories from when I was ~15 or whatever).

X-Wing and TIE Fighter are 10 bucks each.    icon_eek   But as soon as I hear someone say they work great with modern joysticks I'll still pay.    icon_neutral

I was surprised they were $10 also.

Considerably cheaper than eBay at least, since you get both the '94 and '98 releases (and of course DRM-free to boot). That being said, I already have the Collector Series so I'll wait till they go on sale to pull the plug.

Yeah, I bought them without even looking at the descriptions, so when I checked my library, I initially thought had glitched by showing me two copies of each, but they're just the regular and special editions of each. I am so excited!

I can't wait to see how the difficulty level now compares to my memory of the difficulty level.  Remember the mission where you have to defend a frigate and you have to keep boosting power to engines because the TIE Bombers keep appearing on opposite sides of the map?

OMG, most frustrating level ever. I can't even count how many time I failed that mission and had to start over.

KOTOR


On the GoG forums, people are going crazy for this KOTOR release.  My question is "Why?" seeing that it has been on Steam for years.

Holy crap. I just bought X-Wing and Tie Fighter and both games include PDFs of the old Prima Games strategy guides that were 400+ pages long! You also get both the original 1994 DOS and 1998 collector's editions as separate installs. Well worth $10 for each game, IMO.

Oh, man, TIE Fighter holds up so well after a few missions. Playing with a 360 controller (would love to know what controller mappings folks are using, I'm not 100% happy with mine yet).

I had forgotten how vulnerable it feels to be in a fighter without shields - the first mission, I went in head-to-head against a shuttle and just got blown out of the sky. Though I've actually died the most on the first assault gunboat mission, mostly because I'm trying to complete all the primary/secondary/secret objectives. Multiple A-Wings at once are pretty damn hard to dogfight against - I should probably do a better job of retreating to where the rest of the gunboats are so I'm not getting isolated and picked off.

A no-brainer ten bucks for me, for both the nostalgia and the fact that it's still incredibly fun. I think this will bridge the gap nicely until the retail version of Elite comes out.

You know the most dangerous part of a gunboat?  The chunks that break off when they explode.

Amazingly enough, I busted out my ancient Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 USB joystick which I probably have not used in 10 years. Works perfectly with X-Wing and Tie-Fighter.
