Xwing

LucasArts have been exploiting making excellent use of their rich back-catalogue of late, porting old favourites to just about about every platform imaginable – as well as creating new games based on classic IP’s. When asked about the possibility of a revival of their beloved X-Wing and TIE fighter space-shooters in a recent interview with G4, LucasArts President Danny Rodriguez coyly teased that “We don’t have any announcements now, but stay tuned,We will soon.”

Could this signal a return to the glory days of space-sims? I bloody well hope so. Whether it be an XBLA or PSN remake, or a brand new game, I don’t care. PLEASE [insert deity of choice], MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Ahh, man. TIE Fighter was a crazy good game back in the day. Wow.

  • What’s the point of being pink if you are invisible?

    This game neeeeeds to happen though. X-Wing Alliance is still sitting right next to me in my drawer here. :heart:

  • “Invisible Pink Unicorns are beings of great spiritual power. We know this because they are capable of being invisible and pink at the same time. Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorns is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that they are pink; we logically know that they are invisible because we can’t see them.”

    Imagine a 2 player wing-man co-op space-sim
    That would be the shizbomnit :wub: :wub: :wub:

    Oh man I was a huge fan of the original and hope this new version sees the light of day… Will have to get another flight joystick though. :w00t:

    And while they’re at it they should bring back Wing Commander (That crap they released on XBLA was not wing commander) and Freelancer as well.

  • Banana Hammock

    I’d kill everyone here for a Wing Commander remake.

    With Luke Skywalker and Biff from Back to the Future , doing voice over work :cheerful:
