Fancy spending some cash? Of course you do. And what better way to do that but on awesome old and new Lucasarts games which seem to all be dropping all within the next week. Dropping right into your hands like a big pile of...um...something...I don't know. Something good.
Firstly, you've got the brand new Monkey Island game from Telltale. The episodic extravaganza that is Tales of Monkey Island starts off with episode one entitled Launch of The Screaming Narwhal. And that's released on PC today July 7. So if you have any brains, you'll be playing it rather than reading this. But hold on, keep reading.
Next, being released tomorrow (July 8) is a fat stack of old Lucasarts titles on Steam. Apparently this will be a continuing thing for Lucasarts but to begin with, they're releasing on PC:
- Indiana Jones and The Fate Of Atlantis
- Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
- The Dig
- Armed And Dangerous
- LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure
- Star Wars Battlefront II
- Star Wars Starfighter
- Star Wars Republic Commando
- Thrillville: Off The Rails
And last but not least, they've announced a release date for Secret Of Monkey Island: Special Edition for Xbox Live Arcade and PC. IT'S JULY 15TH WHICH IS NEXT WEDNESDAY OH MY GOD...
And remember, if you buy this newfangled HD version of the game, Lucasarts have publicly stated they would love to do more. Save your weekly wages, head down to Cash Converters, betray your blood relatives - just do ANYTHING do get some money because you need to be buying this good stuff. Go now! For the good of video games everywhere!
And go buy a pair of these while you're at it.
