LucasArts Round 2.

Post by PostieDoc » Tue Jan 20, 2015 10:51 am

The second batch of classic LucasArts games have just been launched on GOG.

1 - Star Wars: Dark Forces
2 - Star Wars: Battle Front 2
3 - Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance
4 - Star Wars: Galactic Battleground Saga
5 - Star Wars: Knight Of The Old Republic 2
6 - Star Wars: X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter

All great games and you don't need a killer PC to play them on.
I am a little disappointed that there are no adventures in this batch.
I would love to get Monkey Island 3 and 4 on GOG.

There is an 48 hour counter ticking down until more LucasArts games are released on GOG.

Jolly good stuff there :D

I wish they would get the Star Trek games too though. I want to get Birth of the Federation again.

And Klingon, Star Trek Academy, Borg, 25th Anniversary, Judgement Rites. They've done other Interplay stuff, so hopefully this may go ahead at some stage,

X-Wing Alliance is the pinnacle of that series, really amazing stuff.

GOG have only just gone and added Zak Mckraken And The Alien Mindbenders to their catalogue of Lucasfilms games!
Anyone who enjoys adventure games needs to play this. Don't worry if you don't have a super-PC, a toaster could run this game these days.

Full list of the latest Lucasfilm releases:

1) Zak Mckraken - Adventuring masterpiece.
2) Monkey Island 2 Special Edition - For many the greatest adventure of all time.
3) The Dig - Oh look, another great adventure game.
4) Loom - Ditto.
5) Outlaws - Think Duke Nukem in the wild west, lots of fun.
6) Indiana Jones And The Emperors Tomb - Never played it but people speak highly of the game.

Looking forward to playing Outlaws. I only played the demo back in the day and, by all accounts, I missed out on an excellent FPS.

Is GoG the place to go then for point and clicks? I've never used the service and don't know anything about the range of games available but after reading one of the recent RG articles, I'm interested in getting into some :)

Wouldn't hurt to have another crack at Outlaws either as that was one of my favourite PC games of the 90's. I still have the original big box release but alas I doubt it would work on Windows 7 (it didn't on Vista anyway).

Also, is it easy to use something like a wired 360 pad to play these games or is it a bit of a faff to get USB controllers working?

Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

GoG has a pretty good range of point n click games, old and new. I've bought loads from there, but they also have some of the free ones. Remember with GoG, your games are all DRM free. The older stuff tends to run in a custom DOSBox configuration or via SCUMMVM. The good thing with that is there are versions for portable devices, so many point and clickers work well with a touch screen interface.

They have also started to put some quality stuff out on Linux too.
What was more amazing to me was the challenge of making it work on the less capable Commodore 64. It was a real nightmare implementation, but I did it. - Archer Maclean
