Being a long time fan of the StarWars space simulation games X-Wing and Tie Fighter I thought this was the time to do my first post not exclusively related to space strategy games but about another acclaimed space gaming genre: the space simulation games. As I explain in my about page I plan to post occasionally about other space gaming genres or other non-space strategy games when I find it of interest to the space gaming community.
Yesterday I stumbled in a possible rumor, or rather teaser announcement by LucasArts, in G4 TV, that the X-Wing and Tie Fighter series could come back in the near future.
Patrick Klepek from G4TV reports the following, as part of an interview he did with the LucasArts president Darrel Rodriguez about plans ahead:
«Patrick: I asked Rodriguez for thoughts on a return of the company’s lauded X-Wing and Tie Fighter flight sim series. His answer? “We don’t have any announcements now, but stay tuned, (…) We will soon….. said Rodriguez“»
I really hope they make (or-remake) new StarWars flight simulators. I may have broken one or two mice playing these games :). I don’t remember why but I never managed to use the joystick, it didn’t felt right … maybe something to do with less shooting precision (or more likely I just had a crappy joystick).
X-Wing and Tie Fighter had the atmosphere, the gameplay, the story and solid missions. Happy days.Subscribe RSS
