Re: X-Wing / Tie Fighter rumors
Exactly, which would be the one reason why a re-release of X-Wing could have had serious implications for FoTG if it had happened.

Personally, I hadn't stated a preference, simply a concern ;)

I'll still play FoTG....

And probably enjoy it more.

Re: X-Wing / Tie Fighter rumors
I for one have lost all faith in Lucas Arts. Although I thought Mercenaries was fairly amusing...

Whatever happened to games like "The Dig" or "Full Throttle"? "Sam and Max Hit the Road" was sheer genius!

In truth, I only had the demo. Even so it was most enjoyable. Is it worth finding on Amazon?

I take it you haven't played any of the excellent new Sam & Max episodes by TellTale Games?

It is.

Come to think of it, that was the first game where I went "hey, that was an awesome soundtrack".
"Load sabot. Target Zaku, direct front!"

Re: X-Wing / Tie Fighter rumors
I bought the original X-Wing, but to a child of that time emm386 is a ***** to work with. I bought the re-released triple pack (circa 95/6 i think O_o) maybe a bit later. Can't find it though. which is a shame as i never finished tie-fighter.

EDIT- you're still talking about XWvTF right?

Re: X-Wing / Tie Fighter rumors
I've actually got an original, boxed Rebel Alliance in my collection :) Can't find my original X-Wing and T-F games though, I suspect they are long gone :(

Really need to get a joystick again, just seems a pity to spend out that money mostly for playing older games :(

 
Re: X-Wing / Tie Fighter rumors
I've got the X-Wing and Tie Fighter collector CDs with all the respective expansions. Also got XWA. I assume they could work on my current system with a little jury-rigging. Never bought XVT. I don't give a crap about multiplayer.

Re: X-Wing / Tie Fighter rumors
I had the X-Wing Collector's CD ROM for the Macintosh. Probably wouldn't work on OSX without some finageling, but there you go. Worked fine on OS9, though.

Seeing as I currently run a Windows machine, I can't really use the software, but I do still have it. Supposedly the graphics were better for X-Wing and TIE Fighter on the Mac (not XW vs. TF, that was Windows only), and given that they were DOS only (if I remember properly), that makes perfect sense. Always wanted TIE Fighter, never got it...
