It’s not the first time Amazon has run a gold box on Studio Ghibli’s amazing catalogue, but this is the best, most complete one so far, and features the option of saving on Blu-ray/DVD combos if that’s your style.

GOG Has The Entire Wing Commander Series On Sale Right Now

It’s been a while since Malcolm McDowell and Mark Hamill, uh, hammed it up in a game together. That doesn’t mean we don’t miss them and their furry anthropomorphised enemies, the Kilrathi.
