Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis Sam & Max Hit the Road The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Star Wars: X-Wing Special Edition Star Wars: Tie Fighter Special Edition
Sam and Max is THE big one for me. As far as I'm concerned, that's the best adventure game ever made. I'm surprised it's gotten a re release as well, considering the rights issues. Here's hoping it comes to Steam.
The rights issues probably aren't really all that complicated, since they just belong to Steve Purcell and not some major corporation. Much less red tape to wade through. Plus, these games are now owned by Disney, and Purcell works for Disney. They just have to wander into his office and ask if it's okay.
I hope Day of the Tentacle gets rereleased. I love that game.

Humble Bundle Store is giving away Metro 2033 for free, for the next 7 and half hours after this post.
Also formally PS3 strategy RPG game Valkyria Chronicles is finally coming to PC! With all DLC included and for $19.99 US! It's the closest thing to a cross between Advance Wars and Fire Emblem your ever get! And it's the game you thought Codename STEAM was going to be like in the first place!

Freedom Planet is now available on GOG (and was already on Steam), and it's on sale for half off on both services.
It's an indie platform game that, from what I've heard, was originally intended to be a Sonic fan game based on the SatAM cartoon, but it evolved into its own original thing. I've heard a lot of people say that it's really good, and the demo that's available at the official site is pretty fun, so I might just snag it.

The precursor to the Ultima series, Akalabeth: World of Doom (sometimes referred to as Ultima 0) is FREE on GOG.com. Ultima IV, Savage Empire and Martian Dreams are already free, but the rest of the Ultima games are 80% off until Friday, December 26, 8:59AM GMT.
They're also streaming several Ultima games on Twitch all day.

Ys I & II Chronicles+, Ys: The Oath in Felghana, and Ys Origin were released on GOG a couple of days ago. They've been on Steam for a couple of years now, but ever since Xseed put Trails in the Sky on both Steam and GOG last summer, I've been waiting for the Ys games to show up as well. Took a lot longer than I hoped.
It's also worth pointing out that Xseed released a teaser last month for their upcoming games in 2015. It seems that one of them is likely for Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim, which fans have been requesting for years.
It's unfortunate that from Ys Seven onwards, Falcom doesn't put its games on PC anymore.

This is just me geeking out over Ys since I'm currently playing through the games, but as per the recent teaser, Xseed has officially announced that Ys VI is coming to Steam, GOG and Humble Store this spring. It's got some extra enhancements, including the ability to warp between save points, and the "Catastrophe Mode," which makes the game play a little more like Ys Origin and Oath in Felghana. It's also got a fresh English translation, so it's not borrowing anything from Konami's PS2 port. Xseed said they were aiming to make this the definitive version of the game.
Holy smokes! That's great. I'll definently throw iin a dollar for Mighty Switch Force. Might upgrade based on the extra games. None of the ones right now grab me too much, barring Steamworld which I've already got on Steam. Great game tho.
Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.
Aug 25, 2020 5:29:24 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.
Aug 25, 2020 10:19:20 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.
Aug 25, 2020 11:51:55 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.
Aug 27, 2020 18:35:05 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.
