Star Wars Comes to GOG

Think what one might of the acquisition of the Star Wars franchise by Disney, the arrangement has been good for LucasArts’ stable of awesome games that have languished in obscurity for one reason or another. Starting today, that awful era in gaming has come to an end as Disney Interactive has teamed up with GOG.com to release digital, DRM-free versions of some of the most popular Star Wars video games of all time. Some of our older readers may remember the illustrious X-Wing and Tie Fighter series of space battle simulators, but even if you don’t, these are the sort of games that have stood the test of time and are just as worthy of your time now as they were years ago. But enough prattling on, let’s take a look at the games that will transport you to a galaxy far, far away in the near future:

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels.
When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
