LOL talk about money for old rope. £2.99 is far too much for something of that age, £2.99 for the lot maybe but certainly not each.
#2
Hahah! Well I thought it was a bargain after paying £35.00 for Loom on ebay a few years back!

Ah well, cant win them all!
#3
got myself fate of atlantis thx :) even though i still have it on my miggy .nice to play a game with substance rather than poncy graphics .
will get me in the mood for the revamped monkey island thats out next week .
#4
£2.99's a great price. Sure, the graphics/sounds have aged, but they're still classic games.
#5
I think its one of those things that you have to be a "fan" of! Im a big fan of the old Monkey islands, Loom, Indiana Jones, Flight of the amazon queen, discworld etc etc and get headaches when I play the new 3d games so Im loving the idea of been able to replay old games! Understand that it aint for everyone though!

Brrr... Its cold here! ;-)
#6
I think it's a decent offer :) used to love playing these games.

£2.99 isn't bad at all considering microsoft have charged 800 points on xbla for games like frogger in the past.
#7
Good price for good games :-)
#8
Classic games, excellent prices

Really surprised someone with Max in their avatar would say that!

I'm holding out for a mega LucasArts classics pack weekend deal though. :whistling:

I used to love Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade on the Amiga, I'm tempted...
#11
How does Last Crusade compare to Fate of Atlantis? FOA is playable on the Wii version of Staff of Kings but I'm finding it a bit difficult :(
#12
£2.99 is a brilliant price for these, especially given that they've been updated to run natively on current PCs. really hoping for full throttle and grim fandango in the next batch.

I downloaded Last Crusade and its 3 years older than atlantis and the graphics/gameplay show. Also worth mentioning that if your playing on a laptop, then part of the game it is handy to have a keypad in!

Recommend Atlantis and Loom though!

Doesn't include Day of the Tentacle, massive fail! :(

This is only the start, LucasArts have promised more of their classic games will be released like this.

I don't think the price is that bad, especially if you are only after one or two that are on offer, however they do need to introduce a pack at some point for those of us who want all that they're willing to give. ;-)

The higher priced titles they released are not very good value though.
#16
Fate of Atlantis really brings me back. I probably still have the floppies somewhere :)

I find it great they are bringing them back to work through Steam.
But surely you must have heard of SCUMM VM which means if you have your old games you can play them through that piece of free software. It's been around for yonks!
#18
I think the main problem with these coming up for £2.99 a piece is that for days beforehand, Lucasarts pimped themselves out with an announcement that old-school fans would be happy with what was coming.

In reality, old-school fans, the same old-school fans who no doubt still have their original purchased Lucasarts discs and run them PERFECTLY through SCUMMVM, are extremely ****ing ****** off. The old-school fans thought they were getting sequels and conclusions to their favourite series such as Maniac Mansion, The Loom and the excellent Fate of Atlantis (by far the best Indiana Jones game), but unfortunately no. Re-releases? **** off LucasArts.
#19
Yeah, ScmmVM is great (especilly on the GP2X F200) This deal is OK for those first discovering these old classics, but die hard fans are gonna see this for what it is. Milking old games instead of bringing out sequels!

These really should have 99p jobs. £2.99 is a bit of a rip you ask me.

Did someone say DOTT? :lol:

Yep. I think £2.99 is reasonable, certainly at the top end of reasonable though. I do own a few of them still (and have run them on my DS/PC etc. using scumm) but it will be nice to own copies that can be run without too much fiddling. I am hoping that if they get enough sales then Lucasarts may consider similar remakes to the MI special edition coming out (Zak McKracken please!), or even proper sequels! Those I would certainly buy,

I consider myself one of them. My dreams of a TIE Fighter sequel were shattered once again :x

Voted hot - Fate of Atlantis is a HUGE game and it's pretty good, will last you ages!

Well theres the impending Secret of monkey Island remake (15th?) which looks like it will be superb, plus the new Tales of monkey Island, which may or may not be any good.

Given you cant walk into any game shop and buy these games (new or used) easily, I think £2.99 is fair. I payed a LOT more for my LucasArts games when they came out and now I have to jump through hoops to play them on a modern PC. I'd probably pay £2.99 for that reason alone.

Hot from me :)
#25
I remember the feeling of pure elation when I finally managed to complete Fate of Atlantis, so this game always brings back fond memories. What was the one based around an American Biker usng the same type of game engine? I remember that being a laugh (if too short) as well.

I'd be happy if they released these as a pack but £2.99 a game? I think I'll wait.
#26

I was going to ask that question... I remeber installing all my old games from floppy on an emulator a while ago and they all ran too fast?? Maybe I was doing something wrong?

To answer the question above it was Full Throttle IIRC - Bit linear and short, good music though! I always remember cracking up at Sam and Max, and the humour in Monkey Island etc!!! Guybrush Threepwood, brilliant!

£2.99 alone is good for the memories! Though with ScummVM etc you can get them cheaper.

Yeah but £2.99 a pop come-on, I already have ALL of these in various formats (Amiga floppies FTW :whistling:). They're taking the **ss somewhat at that price point; with the exception of FoA they're not exactly LucasArts best either. Now bring out a pack of MI 1 & 2, S&M, FoA, DotT for a tenner and then you're talking hot deal. :thumbsup:
#28
I know.. I have my fingers and my toes crossed that Maniac mansion and Day of the tentacle will become available soon!

Do you also refuse to buy any films you had on betamax because you have a working player at home? Does that make a £2.99 DVD a crappy deal because its an old film that people should have on some ancient format like you do? Are they fools because they want to have the film play easily on what they have now, as opposed to wanting to jump through hoops like you do?

It might not be **exactly** the same thing, but there are a lot of people who dont have these, and those that do might not even have a floppy drive anymore, or even the inclination to spend time getting this to work on their shiny new 8GB Quad Core Win 7 beast. If £2.99 could save me that hassle then I'd say this i'd say this is a bargain even for those who own the games already. And for those that **dont** already own it - to quote "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" - It's a deal, it's a steal, it's the sale of the f*****g century!

The Amiga floppies reference was a joke, and apparently you've never heard of ScummVM. If you own the originals ALL these titles are playable legally on modern machines - if you could do that with the Betamax tapes you already owned then yeah the £2.99 DVD would be a waste :thumbsup:

Anyway you seem to have missed my point entirely: it is not that they shouldn't re-release these, they are great games after all, nor is it that they shouldn't charge for them. It IS that £2.99 per title is a bit steep for what they are: 10+yrs old, and some of these particular titles aren't exactly the cream of LucaArts back catalogue. Say they eventually release all the LucasArts classics, you tot up all those £2.99's, then tell me it's a good deal.

This is hopefully just the start and they'll eventually get all their old stuff onto steam, classics like Grim Fandango (not that old, admittedly) are hard to come by. I'd even love to replay Rebel Assault for nostalgia value!

Remakes seem to be quite a trend in games nowadays so I wouldn't be surprised if they continued along that path. ;)
#32
what the dickens is Loom is it a groundbreaking new FPS for people interested in the industrial revolution ?
#33
Playing Indiana Jones Lost Crusade at the moment, the game is as old as I am! Here's hoping Grim Fandango will come out, I've always had problems trying to run that game.
#34
Playing Indy and Atlantis at the mo - loving every minute of it - one of the games I missed from the old days. Anyway - £2.99 is excellent if you ask me. These games last a while, are incredibly entertaining and I say good on Steam for releasing to a new generation; and for allowing us old gaming giffers to get our slice of nostalgia.

I say this all the time - forget the graphics. A good game is all about gameplay gameplay gameplay and these titles have that in abundance.

Loom was a bit iffy if I remember though ;)
#35
Bought the Tales of Monkey Island series and is simply amazing! Wasn't too keen on Escape from Monkey Island but loving every minute of chapter 1! £25 is a bargain imo + you get chapter 1 of the wallace and gromit game with it for free lol.
