As previewed on Kotaku yesterday and officially announced on the Star Wars Facebook page, GOG.com now has three classic Star Wars PC games, ready for the current generation of computers. X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and Knights of the Old Republic are just $10 each.
With LucasArts’ X-Wing now 21 years old, it’s exciting to see this franchise come back around as these space simulator games were top notch back then, and probably still hold up well today. Most of my freshman year of college was enjoyed with this game, and sophomore year eaten up with TIE Fighter. Could this mean that the later space sims in the series, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter and X-Wing Alliance, be up for release as well?
As for Knights of the Old Republic, calling this a classic makes me feel old – but it has been 11 years since the game first came out, and it remains one of the best stories set in the galaxy far, far away.
We’ve got two comics coming out Wednesday, or rather, one comic and one trade collection. Legacy #14 is the new issue, and the third Knights of the Old Republic omnibus is the trade. Remember, you’ll want to pick this omnibus up ASAP, as we have no idea how long it’ll remain in print once with Marvel taking over the comics license next year.
We have just under a month until our next upcoming book, Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy, on May 13.
Comics are out on Tuesday this week due to the holiday, so stop by your local comic shop if you just can’t wait for the second Knights of the Old Republic (John Jackson Miller version) omnibus.
Coming in the new year will (no doubt) be plenty more comics, but our first novel release is Joe Schreiber’s Darth Maul: Lockdown on January 28. For more OT-centric fans, there’s the Han-centric Honor Among Thieves by James S. A. Corey in March.
