More golden oldies today, MDK 1 & 2 for $8.99 each or $15 for the pair. For some reason I never got around to playing MDK 2 on the Dreamcast, so I'll probably check this out. For the weekend deal, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition is 50% off in honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and UT3 and the Unreal Tournament Pack is 60% for the UT3 free weekend.

And apparently we've got Madballs in...Babo: Invasion. Yeah, you're guess is as good as mine, but it's only $7.99 I'm a sucker for these cheap indie shooters. I bought Nation Red, and I'll probably buy this too.   




Also, Majesty 2 hit a day early. I pre-ordered it for the bonus Majesty Gold Edition, so I'm downloading it now. I'll probably check it out tomorrow, playing Batman tonight. :rock

The Dark Forces and Jedi Knight Collection is now on Steam for $20. Also all the previously released adventure games (LOOM, Indiana Jones 1 & 2, and The Dig) are now in a pack for $10.

Yeah, I think I'll get Monkey Island SE at that price.  If you play in classic mode with voices off it'll basically be like owning the original version, right?

    *  1. Dark Forces - Runs fine on most systems since it's using DosBox. Some users reporting framerate problems due to frame limiter. Most are running fine.
    * 2. Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight - Range of problems from artifacting, to black screen with just a HUD, to being completely unplayable. Even if you can get it working, there will be no music since the original game had CD music and LucasArts hasn't changed anything to allow it to find the music anywhere but from the original game CD in your disc drive.

So basically other than Jedi Knight 1 + expansion the rest are ok.  Sucks but at least it doesn't affect them all.  You'd think Lucasarts would beta test each game though  :-\

I love Steam, but it is bullshit when companies bring out old titles and don't make the necessary fixes to make them work on modern systems.  They should offer full refunds to those who have issues with the games in these situations.

Also, the MDK package is OK but you missed out on the GOG interplay sale.  Bought both of them for 5.99 together with the interplay buy 1 get 1 free special.  Heck you can still buy them both for 12 bucks combined at GoG, and you know the games will work.  For older games, I tend to look at GoG first since I know they will run.

Painkiller Black Edition is 7.99 this week on GoG.

Yeah, that's my biggest complaint about Steam, that Valve just lets these companies half-ass their catalog releases and put out old games that aren't fully compatible with XP/Vista systems. They need some better (or any at all) Quality Assurance.

All the Lucasarts adventure games have a crappy smoothing filter on.  Is there any way to turn that off, or am I just not going to buy anymore of these Lucasarts classic packs?

$15, but it could be worth it.

$26.99 gets you the entire Painkiller franchise, including the upcoming 3rd game. Not sure how good it'll be, not sure how good the 2nd one was (I heard "not very"), but the first one was pretty awesome at the time. Looks like they're still using the same old engine from 2004, but for the price it might be worth it.
