These special editions are available to download through Steam, so there is no shipping charge... And for those original series fans, these allow you to switch back and forth at will between the new and old versions. I LOVE these games!

@arosiriak: So how does Steam work? Am I downloading the entire game to my computer or do I have to be online to play it?

Looks like a fun game, $4.99-$7.99 is a good price too.

@jazcat: I'm still fairly new to Steam also, so I understand... First, you install the "Steam" client, which will basically act as a library for games. The games will download to your computer, and you can play them anytime you please after that. It's basically like installing the whole game to your hard drive, and just playing it from there. You don't need to be online to play.

That's the basic rundown - though there are lots of other features to Steam that allow you to interact with others in other sorts of games, like MMORPGs and whatnot. They've got a ton of games, and a huge online community following.

And my, oh my, yes - it's a great price... Just try looking up those games, or any of the Monkey Island games on Amazon :)

arosiriak is correct, you don't need to be online to play Steam games. The easiest way to put it is to think of Steam as the iTunes store for computer games; you buy a digital copy of the game and it is added to your library, you can redownload it later to any computer you have registered with your Steam account (though I believe you can only be logged into Steam on one computer at a time).

@thesporkwithin and @arosiriak, thanks, I have taken the plunge and bought the game.

Just what I need, more excuses to sit in front of my computer and play games.
