Default Oddworld Console Titles Coming to PC - Much's Odyssey and Stanger's Wrath

Blues News: http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/boa...hreadid=103013

AWESOME NEWS.

I have never played either, as they did not come to PC when I was "PC or nothing".

I played Munch's Oddysee back when I had an Xbox and never finished it and sold the Xbox before Strangers Wrath came out. I'm totally going to get this when it comes out.

This is good news.

The oddworld games must have sold really well on Steam for them to go to all the trouble to port two entire games over to PC.

I haven't had much time to play them but I bought them when they were on sale. They seem like pretty interesting games. Sort of like Flashback and Blackthorne except the player doesn't shoot.

Hopefully these ones DO NOT sell. The first two games were good, these ones were garbage.

Most people (including myself) found Munch's Oddysee to be a bit of a disappointment. Partly due to it being their first attempt at putting the game world and mechanics into a 3D world space. It was probably also because it was originally being developed for the PS2 and then got a bit of a quick 'n dirty port and slight makeover when it turned Xbox exclusive. I still enjoyed the first half of the game, though. Wish I would have finished it.

On the other hand, Strangers Wrath is pretty widely accepted by critics and users as being a fun and inventive FPS game (for the time, at least). I'm really looking forward to being able to finally play through it.
