    They still have to bring the X-Wing series up to date. They are sitting on a gold mine with that series and don't know it.
    Imagine an up to date X-Wing game, would be awesome!

    Yeah I'd pay for an update of those, even though I own the originals. A really great series that, can't understand why they aren't cashing in on it more, especially given the current dearth of space sims these days

    I would *love* to get my hands on an updated version of all the X-Wing games, but I'm still pretty jazzed about what we're getting. Steam is a pretty nice platform for picking up some of ye olde classics I've found.

    Totally.

    A rerelease of X-Wing Collectors CD, TIE Fighter Collectors CD, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (with Balance of Power) and X-Wing Alliance would be amazing.

    And then make another TIE Fighter game.

    ...

    But good news about those releases. If/when they have them all released and do a mega pack type thing... I might make my first Steam purchase...

    Hmm, I may be tempted to pick up Republic Commando if it is cheap. Was good fun on the Xbox.

    I was planning on picking that up too. I've heard good things about it and it passed me by the first time around.

    Republic Commando? Good?

    I can't stand the Prequels, so I'm a bit biased there... but SWRC was at best fairly generic and at worst a steaming pile of bantha poodoo. ;)

    Indy? Playable on 7? I don't care how much they want for it. Period.

    But no DotT? :(

    Greetings!
    I wonder what this new generation of players (1995+) feels when they see acronyms of games that they havent played.

    This is without doubt the "BEST NEWS EVER".... Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis brings back such fond memories!

    God bless Lucasarts and Steam!!

    Would be a great choice, I played nearly all of the Lucasarts titles the first time around and it was deffo one of the better ones!!

    Am loving all this relaunching of Lucasarts titles that's going on at the mo.

    It was a sad day that the point & click genre was pushed to one side. 3D gaming has a lot to answer for!!!

    Essentially, Lucasarts need to stop making new games and realise they haven't made anything good since The Phantom Menace. Then focus on the old stuff and just make sure it's available, works on modern systems and has spruced up graphics.
