2002 is calling. STAR WARS: Bounty Hunter is making a return and coming to PC from Aspyr Media, with their remaster arriving on August 1st.

Given how bad the release of STAR WARS: Battlefront Classic Collection also by Aspyr has been, it's probably worth holding back a little to see some reviews on this one because that is still sitting at a Mostly Negative rating on Steam.

From the press release it notes: "Become the most feared Bounty Hunter in the galaxy! As Jango Fett, you’ll have to jump, jetpack, climb, and maneuver in this iconic action-adventure game featuring a variety of visual improvements on modern platforms, as well as Steam Deck support and a number of DualSense controller features for PlayStation 5 players." [emphasis added]

Aspyr if you screw this up somehow...

Cool, I really liked it on GameCube back in the day. I might get it on Switch, but the PS5 version supports haptics. So I'll probably go PlayStation this time.

My friend and I decided we want the 90s back. Especially if we got to keep our current salaries with the cost of everything from the 90s...

Can we get a greatest hits board for comments? Because this deserves one.

While they are at it, can they turn back time a couple months and unfumble the Battlefront release?
I am incredibly disappointed in how that went. It should be impossible to screw up a re-release of an old game so badly, that the original still has a way higher playercount...

Desktop Linux support officially would be a nice hat tip too. I recall Aspyr was (or is?) amongst Linux supporters.

Gaming via Proton on Linux is actually Linux native gaming; calls and commands are turned into Linux understandable form!

They have a habit of abandoning their Linux ports. Borderlands 2's native build is behind the game's current Windows build and does not support the Commander Lilith DLC, as an example.

Sort of... It's more like how I can read the original Odyssey by Homer... but only by pulling out my phone and running the translate app via a camera over it. Sometimes it gets a little janky and wrong words will pop up, then change around so the sentence structure will be correct for English, but it's still going to sit in a closed book as Greek... I wouldn't consider that native either.

That of course is different than emulation, where that would be me plugging a Greek dictionary chip into my brain so that I can read the original text.
