Since so many of us grew up playing X-Wing and TIE, I think this news is going to be very welcome to many of our members (quite frankly, myself included).
A gaming website known as Good Old Games will be putting out digital re-releases of both X-Wing and TIE Fighter. These versions don't come with modern graphics or improved sound, but they've been re-mastered with optimisation for modern OS, which means that they don't require an insanely lengthy process to install which was always the hardest part of getting these games to work. Both games will be $10 USD each as a digital download and are the Special Editions, so you get all the expansions with each game with their slightly-enhanced graphics (so TIE comes with Defender of the Empire and X-Wing comes with B-Wing and Imperial Pursuit).
Both of these games will be released in around a day (this means some time on the 28th of October for you US people and probably the 29th for the rest of us), so keep your eyes on Good Old Games and pick up the games that very literally defined the early Brotherhood. They're worth it.
