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.
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.
Jul 24, 2020 22:46:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.
Jul 26, 2020 1:45:06 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.
Jul 26, 2020 8:41:58 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.
Jul 29, 2020 3:00:10 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.
Aug 2, 2020 23:44:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
