X-Wing/Tie Fighter Re-Release

This is awesome news! Finally after 20 plus years we are getting a re-release of two of the best PC games to come out of Lucas Arts and possibly of all time. The epic Star Wars inspired flight sims are making a triumphant come back! I can’t even tell you how many hours I spent as a kid on both the X-Wing and Tie Fighter PC games. They were both way ahead of their time and gave you the feeling of actually being part of a large scale, intergalactic, war fought between the Empire and the Rebellion.

From Kotaku:
Special digital versions of both X-Wing and Tie Fighter will soon be released on Good Old Games. They’ll be $10 each.

Ok, so I don’t know how triumphant this return is, but I’m pretty excited about. Apparently for our ten dollar purchase we will get special editions of the games with a little higher resolution and versions that are made to work on modern Day PCs. I guess it’s time to dust off the old flight joystick and kiss my family goodbye… So far no official release date has been announced yet, but you can rest assured I will update you when one is. So what are your thoughts Nerd Nation? Did you play either one of these games back in the day and do you plan on picking yourself up a new copy for $10?
