You see what I did there!? I Jedi Mind Tricked Disney into adding two of my nostalgic Star Wars favorites, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, to the Star Wars Humble Bundle, and lo and behold, what two games pop up today at the one week point? Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II!
Someone give me a midichlorian count! I am ready to join the Light Side, ya’ll!
I had nothing to do with Star Wars Starfighter though. Must have been my subconscious Dark Side desires. All three games have been added to the Star Wars Humble Bundle at the “average price” tier, which currently sits at $11.43. With just 57 cents under the $12 tier, you might as well cough that money up for the chance to explore why The Force Unleashed is such scum and villainy.
At any rate, $12 is still a bargain considering you’ll be getting one of the best games ever made, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, its “almost but not quite” sequel, and a whole lot of Star Wars action displayed in horribly dated 3D graphic engines.
I never realized it until they were all put next to each other like this, but Star Wars PC games provide a wonderful timeline as to how graphics in PC first-person shooters evolved over time. DOOM clones to Quake clones to being legitimately good 3D, and we can even throw a dose of full-motion video in there too! We run the gamut of 20 years over the course of five or six games. Very interesting.
Be sure to act before the week is out and pick up your cheap Star Wars games.
