STAR WARS: Lucasarts’ X-Wing and TIE Fighter are back!
Finally in the new millennium we are able to digitally purchase the classic Star Wars Lucasarts games X-Wing and TIE Fighter! Both games are $9.99 each right now on GOG.com (that’s Good Old Games for the uninitiated.)
Those of you who remember the Special Editions will no doubt remember that you had to play the game with a joystick. No, really, you had to or else you get this message:
And yup, that message is still there in these new digital versions. If you wanted to use mouse and keyboard you would have to play the original version, not the ’98 Special Editions. It’s actually a blessing as dogfighting with a joystick is the only way to go.
Fortunately Saitek has a range of flight sticks and HOTAS perfect for immersing yourself in these games.* Head over now to the Saitek webstore and check out the V.1 stick now!* the V.1, F.L.Y.5, X52, and X52 Pro work great with these games. However the X55 is not recommended as X-Wing and TIE Fighter only recognize one USB device.
