Full Throttle Remastered (PS4, PC; 2017)

Just an announcement, nothing to show at the moment. This isn't too much of a surprise given the other two Tim Schafer LucasArts games are being/have been remastered.

http://www.doublefine.com/news/comme...le_remastered/

Full Throttle is probably my second favorite LucasArts adventure game, after Day of the Tentacle.

Re: Full Throttle Remastered (PS4, PC; 2017)

I'm excited, I really liked Full Throttle too. A long time out, but i'll be happy to get this on PC when it comes out. I'm really enjoying all these remasters, I wish the Sierra games would get the same treatment.

Re: Full Throttle Remastered (PS4, PC; 2017)

So....does DoubleFine not want anything to do with Xbox anymore or what exactly? Or is Microsoft being a pain in the ass again? I would love to see this, but I can hardly rationalize a whole system for it, just curious.

I know with Grim Fandango that Sony helped fund it, so either they continued a similar relationship or signed some sort of long term exclusivity deal for the other games.

I'm glad I can play it on PC, although it's a shame since I did play the preview Monkey Island Special Editions on XBox 360.

I want to be excited about this, but if there were ever a painfully short LucasArts game from the heyday, it's this one.

Too bad about Xbox, but I'm looking forward to this one on PC. It's one of the few SCUMM games I never played for whatever reason.

For those eyeing the PS4 version, if you preorder it (and are a PS Plus member), you can save 20% (getting it for $11.99) and get a free static theme as well.

Re: Full Throttle Remastered (PS4, PC; 2017)

Out today! I'll probably get it on Steam since that's where I have Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango. It's also $11.99 on Steam, GOG, and Humble Bundle for those looking at the PC version.

Re: Full Throttle Remastered (PS4, PC; 2017)

Finished this up just a little bit ago. Just as excellent as I remember, minus the combat part, which is still a little hokey.

Boba Fett is right though, this game is really short. Still, it's great to be able to play this game again. I'll probably play through it again with the commentary enabled.
