Ducktales and Castle of Illusion

Have you seen this? Two classic games being reworked for several gaming platforms, including the PC. First, there is Ducktales, the 1989 Capcom game for NES featuring Scrooge McDuck. Second, Castle of Illusion, the first Mickey Mouse game for Sega Genesis and Master System, from 1990.

Ducktales Remastered will be released in Q2/Q3 2013:

Am I the only one excited about these?

I love any 2D side scrolling game. I wasn't a typical kid in that I got into gaming late (I think 4th grade) when I finally got an SNES. I only had Super Mario World and Super Mario All Stars and since I never beat them I kept playing them for years! (I'm much better now.)

When the N64 came out, I wished that they would just make better and better side scrolling games, in the vein of the Donkey Kong games for SNES, but it looks like that's what this game is, which is awesome.

I loved DuckTales so much. Watched it every day after school. I'll be very excited to try this out if it ever makes it to the Mac, as I'm not in the market for a PC or console.

I guess Ducktales is not coming to the Mac. Capcom only announced the PC version these days, as the original plan was to release it for consoles only. But you can always run it on BootCamp.

Hmm . . . too much trouble to bootcamp for one game, but you never know, sometimes the games get popular enough that they port them.

I would tend to agree. However I use a dedicated gaming console (Xbox) as I don't think any PC can hold a candle to a dedicated platform.

Well, I guess it depends on the PC you're using and on the video card as well, right?

I think Xbox Live when it launched in 2002 made online gaming more sociable by almost forcing voice chat on people. But as for offline gaming, I do think PC was a lot more beautiful back then.

It took a long time to get to the Mac. And, as far as I am concerned, DuckTales is only available for Windows.

I'm happy to see this on Steam. It looks like good fun.

Yes but is the glass half empty or half full?

Correct, that's why I only said Castle Of Illusion was on Mac, not both titles
