And adding to the news, Sega is strongly hinting a re-release of Valkyria Chronicles- for the PC.

No complaints from me. VC was one of the best games released on the PS3. *Ad maybe we'll get a NA release of VC3 at some point too.)

In better news, GoG has just acquired the rights to a bunch of LucasArts games. 30 total are on the way, including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.

Oh, and Sam and Max Hit the Road.

And X-Wing and Tie Fighter. I have no idea how to play these well without a joystick though. (And believe me, I tried and tried to use keyboard controls with X-Wing in the day. I was able to do Wing Commander with the keyboard, but in X-Wing, I only got a few missions in before it became unplayable.)

I'd only heard about X-Wing and Tie Fighter, which was already good news. GOG is going to get a nice chunk of my money soon.

And BOOM! The front page of http://www.gog.com looks like they reached into the fantasies I had of the site when I had just discovered it and made it real.

Of those, the only ones I haven't played are Knights of the Old Republic and Secret of Monkey Island.

Obviously this is a problem that will need to be solved soon. Also, getting to blow up some spaceships, save a sasquatch or two and figure out those orichalcum machines all over again will be fun.

Heh.


The Simpsons game just added Matt Groening into the game.


And along those lines, the latest episode of South Park takes a rather dim view of the whole "Freemium" concept in gaming. I'm guessing that "South Park: Tap for Stuff" isn't on the way anytime soon.


(And holy cow. A shoutout to Zombicide. Awesome.)

Blizzcon News-


*1st Expansion for Hearthstone launches next month called Goblins and Gnomes. 100 cards. Android version soon.
*Warlords of Draenor arrives next week
*Heroes of the Storm closed beta - January 13
*Legacy of the Void- Next year. I think.


And a new IP. Overwatch. It's sci-fi. It's a team based shooter. With a bright color pallet. And cybernetic gorillas. From the early look, it looks like TF2, but with a LoL style roster. Gorgeous looking too.

Yeah, that's a cinematic, but the gameplay trailer look purdy too.

My experience with MAME in the past was pretty negative. It was a long time ago so I presume the software has improved. I got it as a torrent and it had numerous malware in it, than when I got it working the majority of games didn't not work.
