Re: LucasArts done for
I and all my friends have long since said that if they decided to remake X-Wing and/or Dark Forces with modern graphics while keeping the gameplay mostly unchanged, we would all go apeshit and buy them.
I don't know if this news makes that desire more or less likely however.
There were fan projects to remake some of the games with more modern technology, but I don't remember any of them ever being finished.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
