    Awesome. Spent so many happy hours playing TF. Hope the follow-ups get a re-release too.

    This game deserves a facelift/re-boot - classic :)

    oooooh awesome. Time to dust off the old joystick (no, that's not a euphemism).

    Played a lot of XvT / BoP so this could be fun. Also quite liked X Wing Alliance.

    I have the Steam version of Kotor and it's broken (can't load save games or something I forget) so would be good to see it fixed.

    I'm just a bit surprised Disney went with notoriously DRM free GOG but fingers crossed this means Grim Fandango remastered will be on there.

    I think I briefly played the Tie Fighter game at my cousins, along with Dark Forces. My entry into the Star Was games began with Rogue Squadron and Dark Forces 2:Jedi Knight.

    Odd. My kotor works fine on Steam.

    I'm so thankful GOG are around, and long may they continue to release old classics, and long may I continue to buy them. Full Throttle & Day of the Tentacle next please.

    Bought the moment I got home... was so excited whilst at work when I saw the announcement.

    This was one of the first games I searched for when they brought out their "Suggestions/Wishlist".

    Mine too. Getting it to display widescreen is the hard part (flawless widescreen fixes it). Past that it plays fine.

    "You are endowed with the power to destroy the enemy!" ... Fond memories, although playing mostly consisted of crazy spinning in all directions, especially in TIE vehicles without shielding which could only survive 1 or 2 hits at best.

    Everything was much easier with the crazy projectile load of the Missile Boat and its awesome tractor beam :)

    this story has made my year. I spent many hours playing TIE Fighter.

    I've still got it in it's box with original flight manuals.

    I hope the games eventually get released on Steam. Can only hope I guess.
