    "Jedi Knight series" could only mean JO and JA.

    Yeah, JK and MotS have almost no chance to be on steam.

    Would be nice though.

    Wonder if they'll fix all the rendering problems on modern video hardware or just dump the game out there as is, even though it doesn't work at all with any of ATI's DX10 cards.

    Few things make me cringe more than these shows getting girls to pretend their geeks.

    "oh my god geek moment"

    Who are they trying to kid?

    JK is part of the Dark Forces series, remember? Then after that it turned into JEDI KNIGHT II. Leaves JK itself where?

    After 11 years I still don't have the initiative to check gaming videos, so I assume some guy just mentioned "Jedi Knight" in a "Steam"y context... so, yeah.

    Mmmm man... if they release a JK pack (or DF pack as it should be) I will definitely snatch it up.

    The problem isn't actual geeks, it's ones that fake it and try to be "Random" and "Zany".

    It's nice they give a way to inform fans of updates and such, but why Twitter? Couldn't they use a simple blog instead? I want to punch the guy at LA who thought using Twitter like this is a good idea. It's so annoying to read.

    Oh, neato!
    I regret giving away my steam account now!

    *cough* someone should pay back the favour and buy me an account with JK wink wink nudge nudge. *cough*

    anyways after that pathetic attempt to make someone feel obligated to buy me jk....

    So think we will be able to use mods and expansions on this steam version?

    i find it difficult to get all that excited about DF/JK series on steam since i already have them all

    What part of 'all of em' did you guys not understand! Mysteries of the Sith? Yup. Dark Forces? Yup. I really meant ALL!
    Any idea how much the original DF will cost? It's easier for me than installing Windows 3.11 on a Virtual PC. I had trouble getting that to work right anyways.

    Also, is there any chance people who have JK could play with people who buy JK on Steam?

    I want to see how they fixed all the issues with JK/DF on modern systems. They couldn't just slap the games on there and call it a day.

    I guess DF could use DOSBOX? id software used it for classic games.

    Steam accounts don't cost anything... just buy the game.

    This needs a Massassi news post about it!

    And just spend the $5 or whatever to get the old game on Steam, geez.

    DOSBox for DF makes sense, but I asked them about it (let's see if they respond to tweets). For JK they'd definitely have to make source code changes to support new hardware and OSs. They'd want to put in stuff like HUD scaling too for super high resolutions I imagine. Also the network code would need reworking. I wonder if the network stuff will integrate with the steam server browser...?

    Even though this news doesn't really move me, it's always fun to see all those naysayers who were "OMG JK CANT BE ON STEAUM" proven wrong.

    But seeing as certain games e.g. Jagged Alliance 2 (so I've heard) don't even work properly on Steam and haven't worked in years, well, big whoopity.

    Or a flood of idiots. JO and JA had one of the worst gaming communities.

    Yes, apparently Lucasarts is willing to sell a game that won't function on modern computers.

    Indeed. I don't really care if they release the game on steam or not, I already have it. If they fix the problems with modern hardware AND THEN release it on steam instead of doing the all to common dump and grab, I'll be interested.

    Well, the Fallout games work very well through Steam. The last time I tried to install those from the CDs on a modern computer failed horribly. I still probably won't buy JK since I get the feeling I'll still be quite burnt out on it.

    well they released a game that doesn't work properly on modern video cards (republic commando's bump mapping doesn't agree with DX10 video cards) i guess the next step is a game that doesn't work on modern computers

    I would say given their very recent track record, you should expect them to release versions that have been tweaked to work on modern hardware. What that means in terms of multiplayer, who knows. But you should expect the single player to work splendidly on new systems. They know DF can't just run via magic. This ain't the old Lucasarts.

    They already released stuff like The Dig and Indiana Jones & Fate of Atlantis on Steam, and they didn't use SCUMMVM or DOSBOX. I think this is an attempt to reclaim some of the old reputation they had, rather than a quick money grab.

    It does say "series" and there's no telling wtf that means until we see it. JK, MotS, JO & JA? Or just JO & JA? Who knows.

    I still have all of them, but I'd prolly buy JK & MotS again on Steam, if they actually do work better on modern systems.
