  • Do we have pricing and or filtering options?
    It's really really fucking great that lucasarts are finally listening but the problem is the community have written emulator upon emulator now.
    I can pop in my original discs and rip the files from them and play Full Throttle on my Xbox 1 and it looks damned good all smoothed out on the 50" plasma (for it's age, it's amazing) - along with a tonne of other games.
    I think the iphone (broken) has a scumm emulator, DS does maybe - so many do and half of them have free 'blur' or crisp routines, better save routines etc.

    I feel like buying these to support LA but I wonder if I'll ever play them what with the originals so easy to play on my shelf thanks to the community.
    Boy have they missed a lot of money avoiding this for so many years.

    The one thing the community never did do though, was re-do Tie Fighter and Xwing in HD, with new textures and stuff - the games are awesome and ...while it wouldn't be as small a project as upconverting an adventure game, I can imagine it would be at least somewhat simplified.
    Maybe they should look at that next.
