Yep, you guessed it. Lucasarts stuck us with another port. When you announce new games, aren't the games supposed to be new? The other three there announcing will probably be Force Commander Unlimited, Super Tie Fighter and Rebellion Advanced. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/rolleyes.gif


I calculated the odds that this would work versus the odds that I was doing something incredibly stupid...and I went ahead anyway.

you were WRONG rhett. fortunately i'm not going ot be the only one extremely mad.

Starfighter Special Edition is going to...xbox!!!! YAY!!!! Let's party!!! *jumps into a steaming river of acid and fuel holding a lighted match* I was hoping it'd come to pc. oh well. at least battlegrounds is going to pc. i wouldn't mind rebellion advanced though...

What the heck are you babbling on about? The're taking a game from one system and putting it onto another system. What are you not understanding, Garindan? Why would anyone else but you be mad? I bet everyone else thinks that this sucks as far as NEW game announcements go.

I agree the distinction here is between "New Game" meaning a new game, verses "Ported verison of a Previously Released Game, with some extras."

I mean when a studio releases a DVD version of a movie they previously released on VHS, they don't call it a "New Movie." It is understood that it's the same movie, just on another format, maybe with some extras thrown in.

LEC seems to be taking the definition more loosely than most of us. Oh well..

Two more game announcements to go, on May 7th and May 8th... according to the site.

Maybe there is still hope for an FPS game for the PC.. heh.

If the other two announcements are just more console ports, I guess I'll be a bit disapointed too, so I won't hold my breath!

Hey Garindan, how's this: *Jumps naked onto a fireman's pole made of razorblades, sliding into waiting pool of vinegar.*

That has got to hurt.....

ouch! that's gotta hurt! just make sure it doesn't stay on the bone too long or it'll be beyond the repair that calcium can give!

ummm it did say 'new game announcement' starfighter.

I'm still hoping for a DF3, but it won't have an 'originality' feel to it since it'll be just a 3rd installment in the series. That's why i'm waiting for Galactic Battleground to come out.

I'm mad. It's not for PC. Who cares about xbox?

Looks like the framarate problems will be fixed as well, hooray! I'm happy. But I agree, some 'new' games would be nice. Anybody heard what genre Bounty Hunter will be (ie. FPS)? Maybe that'll be the new DF3.
