ATARI brings classic games to GOG.com - Star Control?

Last I heard Toys for Bob owned the character rights. Does anyone know or think there is any chance of a possible re-release of Star Control 1, Star Control 2 or Star Control 3 with this announcement? Would you buy them? Regardless, I'm pretty fricking excited about Master of Orion and Master of Mag...

I think that does look better than Zenzmurfy's smallest ones but, isn't that TOO small?

Re: Games other than Star Control

Supreme Commander killed a lot of the fun I could have had with StarCraft 2, since Starcraft 2 doesn't have any Strategic Zoom whatsoever.. Yeah, me too. Even though I haven't played Supreme Commander in years, every time I pick up another RTS I try and strategic zoom and then get pissed off that I...

Re: Did I miss anything?

Didn't someone make a "StarControl style" text converter thingy at one point? Any links? Also, is it just my crummy Internet or is the fabled "Sa-Matra.net" down? http://www.sa-matra.net EDIT: Looks like it was just my crummy Internet :P http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com helps in these situati...

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

We can definitely work on some of these suggestions. With enough effort, couldn't a SMF smiley set be made? I definitely agree, that the Username font seems too small. I also wouldn't mind someone more talented than me working on the header graphic :D There is just way way too much wasted space up t...

Re: Do you know the ancestor of all Starcon games ?

I never played Starflight. I always wanted to. I bought a copy off of eBay many many years ago.

How does it hold up? Worth trying to play now? Are there any modern remakes or modernizations for it (like UQM for StarCon2)?

Re: A hint of things to come...

I have to admit, I'm kinda excited. I really hope it's something a long the lines of Star Control or Unholy War. Something with some interesting characters or aliens.
