Steam Is Having A Pretty Big Sale On All Star Wars Games Ever

I'll probably uppercut the first person who says 'May the Fourth be with you' this Sunday, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate this amazing Star Wars sale that Steam seems to be running this weekend. It's a good 'un.

Check out this Star Wars collection...

-- Battlefront II -- Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast -- Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II -- Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy -- Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith -- Republic Commando -- Star Wars Starfighter -- The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes -- The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition -- The Force Unleashed II -- Star Wars: Dark Forces -- Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic -- Star Wars: Empire at War -- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II

All of those can be bought for $33.99.

That's insane.

Or you could pick and choose. All of the above games are also on sale and you can get them individually. If you haven't played Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic? Well you should probably do something about that.

It's probably worth mentioning as well that Activision also has a sale.

And I'm guessing it's all part of the lead up to the new Call of Duty announcement which is scheduled to his this Sunday/Monday depending on the time difference. So if you're a fan of Call of Duty, or practically any of Activision's franchises, today is a good day.

Firstly, just about every Call of Duty game you can name is on sale. Ghosts is 33% off, but still pretty steep at $60.29 thanks to the Australia tax, but the earlier games are reasonably well priced.


    All of it is non-canon because Disney.

      I know it's not a real world but the fact that it never actually took place in the canon really kills the buzz a bit.

        The Old Republic is gone.
        That's bad.

        But so is Starkiller.
        That's good.

        Republic Commando is also gone.
        That's bad.

        But so is cyborg Darth Maul.
        That's good.

          Actually I think Clone Wars and Cyber Darth Maul are still in...

          I read that in my head as homer simpson and that krusty voodoo seller guy haha.

            The toppings contain potassium benzoate... That's bad.

    How do old MS DOS based games work with steam? Will I need dosbox? Would love to play through the original Dark Forces again.

      I believe they work via Dosbox, which comes with the Steam version automatically. You just click on it in the library, and it runs. The Dig and Fate of Atlantis work this way. Haven't tried Dark Forces though.

      I would recommend rupublic commando as a good star wars game for anybody who has never played it. Fairly short if I remember correctly but a good fun ride.

      Also the pinball tables are very well done

      Thought I had unreplied oh well. I think all the games were re-done for XP when they launched on steam about 5 years ago.

      Anything that you buy on Steam usually has been patched to work with the latest Windows OS. I myself have had Dark Forces on Steam for a while and can 100% confirm that it works on Windows 8/7 through Steam. When you double click on the shortcut. the game auto launches a Dox Box setup that Steam have done and the game runs flawlessly!!

      They come with what you need to run them, you don't need anything extra. Or that's how it was with the original XCOM games, at least.

      I had heaps of issues tryin to play KotOR again on (i think) Windows 7. I gave up in the end so there might be a fix out for those games now that I never found.
      EDIT: Doesn't Dark Forces run on the same engine as the first Jedi Knight game? Pretty sure that one still works on Windows 7 so Dark Forces might.

    I think its time for me to pickup KOTOR 2 on PC. I had the Xbox version back in the day and I would love to give it a crack with all the cut content.

      I think it's time for me to finally pick up KOTOR / KOTOR 2. I've never had them.

      But then, they'll probably sit in my pile of shame for a while. Still. A bargain is a bargain.

        You'll find they've aged quite badly... Well, not in respect to the stories - they're still great. The clunky interface, inventory and character screen however I did not remember being so bad.

    I've had nothing but issues with KOTOR since Windows 7. It runs like a prick.

      IIRC, you had to disable visual themes on the shortcut for it to run correctly and enable v-sync in game.

    I kind of want to be the first to say "May the Fourth be with you" to Mark on Sunday just so I can brag to my friends that I was the guy that got uppercut by Serrels.

    Err XWing? TIE Fighter? XvT? Xwing Alliance? Rogue Squadron? Not quite ALL Star Wars games ever...

    The Activision sale looks pretty awful. $30 or $40 for World at War and Modern Warfare 1. $70 for Black Ops and MW2 (and then MW3 is only $30 for some reason)

      Yep, the COD games are still outrageously overpriced.

    Very solid sale, tons of quality hours to be had here.

    It still astounds me that they never made a sequel to republic commando.

    Out of all the games ever made from the Star Wars franchise, republic commando impressed me the most, considering when it was made and how well they managed to make it both fun and challenging.

    It's sad that these days some of these classics show their age after a while but they're still quality games in their own right.

    About that... there is kind of a shitstorm in the steam forums because they are selling Star Wars games (like Battlefront II) but they can't provide the CD keys to play them. And with Lucas Arts being dead and all, i think they wont actually deliver them. So, beware if you are planning on buying the bundle of any of those games without checking the forums first to see which of those are working or not.
