LucasArts's "Golden Oldies"

So, what's everyone's feelings? Any good?

Does anyone know of the OTHER outlets (ie. not Steam) that were mentioned in the press release? Are there any?

Haha! I love this:

Yeah those old lists of features that were new back in the day are indeed rather funny.

I haven't actually played The Last Crusade, but I plan to buy it on steam though.
Also yet to buy any of the others on steam.

Current Game: Wallace & Grommit
Technically, it is higher resolution than their older games like Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken (the first versions, anyway). Actually, wasn't Last Crusade the first LA adventure to use 320x200 graphics? I know they were all 320x200 technically, but MM and Zak's graphics (not the verbs on the bottom or text) had bigger pixel blocks and thus were a different resolution than what the game was rendered in.

And obviously, when they said 3D back then they meant depth of a picture, ability to walk behind and in front of objects, etc.
