    Just want to share with everyone - hope this doesn't qualify as advertising, as I profit in no way personally.

    Anyway, lots of great SW games on sale via STEAM. Check it out!!!

    Awesome! I'll check it out. I'm hoping the PS Store and Xbox puts some Star Wars content on sale as well. I've been itching to try out Dark Forces on PS1 again.

    EDIT: OHMYGAWD those prices! I was getting the entire Dark Forces series this month as sorta "Star Wars" month celebration. But I think I'm going to get them in digital form now and get the physical copies later!

    Wowzers! Some of those games alone are worth £35 so that for all of them is a steal! If anyone was looking for KotOR 1 and 2 then now is the time to get them! Also, Republic Commando, as I love it.

    Yeah, I bought Dark Forces, DF II: Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and Republic Commando for like $14 altogether.

    KOTOR, KOTOR II, Battlefront I & II, TFU I & II, CW: Republic Heroes, & Star Wars Starfighter are all on sale as well. The most expensive one is TFU II for $6.79, everything else is $3.39 and under!

    I think there's also a bundle pack or two on there.

    I saw the prices and by big Bith head exploded! I hope anyone who's thinking about buying these games sees this. The sounds of lightsabers and blaster fire will be heard from my office for months to come!

    Perfectly, too. That's awesome, Steam only listed them as XP and Vista compatible. Thanks again for the heads up.

    Looks like Battlefront II has a solid multiplayer capacity again now that it's on Steam. Excellent.

    Might get Starfighter. I have a copy of the original game on PS2 but it was from a thrift shop so it was so badly scratched I haven't been able to play it. It looks like it is cheaper to get it new on Steam than it is to do a disc repair at my local game shop.

    I got Dark Forces, DFII, and MOTS in addition to KOTORII as I've never played it. I might get more! But the rest I own a disc of, although my KOTOR disc is scratched to the point it no longer works. Kinda wish the X-Wing series was on there now. But these are great prices!

    Yeah, if I had seen the X-wing series on there I would have jumped. As it was I dropped a few bucks on getting Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, Mysteries of the Sith, and a backup copy of KoTOR II in case anything ever happens to my CDs.

    Yeah I really wish they'd put X-Wing and TIE Fighter on there!

    I wish they'd bring back space combat sims in general.

    Play Dark Forces on the new XL Engine. It's fantastic, widescreen, mouse look, dynamic lighting... Google it...

    I'll do it, once i play through the classic version again...even though I've probably done it too many times hehe!

    I've been having some graphical issues on Dark Forces II, time to use Google for halp.

    If I used Steam, this might be great, but I don't consider Steam owning games.

    It's the same game, using the original data files, just an updated graphics engine to run it on.

    Bought the entire Star Wars Franchise pack on Friday for 33.99, absolutely dirt cheap! If anyone is looking for multiplayer games, I'm all in!

    Hop on BF2, it's incredibly active this weekend. I've got to grab a wired 360 controller, apparently the Steam version works excellent with one (should help in space with the joystick).

    I already have BF2 on disc, but haven't played it too much do to my lack of awesome with a mouse and keyboard. I've been meaning to get a wired 360 controller myself!

    Good deals, none of my older SW games I have disc copies of will run anymore on PC so Steam is a saviour for me.

    I already have most of the SW games on Steam, but might try to get some of the others.

    My sentiments as well. I have never played them before, but I am greatly intrigued by them indeed.
