I think that the timing could be about right to publish Grim Fandango onto Steam. Duncan had done a let's play of it recently: view link I think a lot of people are pirating it now and it might be a good time while there is some increased interest. Although, I realize that it may take some time to get a version developed that will work across all platforms.
Bring them all to steam, please. Can't see how you have anything to lose. I'd love to see Outlaws available for purchase again. It's really a great game. But the same could be said about any of the LEC classics.
The only LucasArts classic that I want to see on steam right now would definately have to be...
.........Sam & Max Hit the Road. That game was one of their highlights and I swore on my copy of Sam & Max: Surfin' the Highway that I wasn't gonna die until I played it!
I think Outlaws would be a GREAT steam release. its been almost impossible to play without some kind of glitch or bug popping up on any operating system since 95-98 and its a timeless game! Though, it would be nice if you put more support behind its function than you did Jedi Knight because that game still bugs out even though you're still distributing it to people with 32-64bit operating systems over steam. HOPE YOU READ THIS!
The only problem is that they don't work for Windows 7. I still have JK:JA on disc and it doesn't work with my new computer. So if you're planing on getting them from steam, make sure you have Windows XP or earlier.
Ok so basically Lucas Arts we're just asking for all your games old & new
What I would like to see from steam if (allowed from the publisher) is a all-in-one solution to
having the game on your iPhone, iPad to Mac or for those on Windows 7 to W7 phone & Xbox live.
I know it was mentioned in there statement for Mac but this was for people who already bought a game in PC to port free to Mac.
This brings in the question of how could they achieve this with the different interface set-ups even between iPhone & iPad? On the phone side they would have to use the accelerometer with a few touch controls.
On iPad they would be able to have a full TC interface for larger screen & "HD" moving it to desktop would set normal keyboard-setup with true HD.
Again this would make the app - game a large-file though but you only pay once or you'd have to have at lest 2 different version "pay twice" secondly can they make it intelligently enough to be scalable for interface-control & Resolution on the device automatically?
I would like to see X-wing, Tie Fighter Collector's CD, XvT, and X-wing Alliance all on steam or direct2drive. The updated versions from X-wing Trilogy.
by the way, I just purchased X-wing Trilogy used on the internet. I have a lap top computer that does not have a number pad. Is the look function in Tie Fighter compatible with the hat switch on a joy stick? Or do I have to buy one of those USB number pads to be able to look around in Tie Fighter?
