I can not wait for a Lighthouse sequal. That was one of the best games ever, and no one ever remembers it.

Hey, I remember that game. My friend and I had no idea what we were doing, but it was still pretty awesome.

I'm pretty sure these guys did AVP2 for PC. One of my favorite games growing up. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be AVP3. That would make my year.

What? No. Where'd you get that idea? Monolith did AVP2. I doubt Sierra was involved in any way, even as a publisher.

I'll laugh when this turns out like EA Origin and Sierra is just another re-branded weird games download service.

At least they already have their motto: Save Early, Save Often.

Anyway I have no reason to be hyped about this, too hard to believe the right people are in place to revisit the well and make it work.

Activision's new digital store, right? Probably. If that's where The Legend of Korra releases, I'll download it.

Edited by BatmanBatman

I don't even know what this means nowadays... Let's wait for the annun-cement then...

@dagbiker: Would love to play that game again. The weird atmosphere affected me in a way no other game has to this day.

Haha, I forgot that was actually their motto. By that case, Sierra should be a discount video games sales service.

Sierra has a lot of the games I played in my childhood. Space Quest, Quest for Glory... oh, and Half-Life in college. Awesome, but it won't be the same company.

That game was pretty cool, but I never got very far in it. There were a handful of legitimately good Myst clones from back in those days. Obsidian is probably my personal favorite.

Sierra and it's games not only formed the beginning of my gaming career but in a lot of cases taught me to spell. .If they can recreate any of the old magic of Quest for Glory, Kings Quest,Space Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry I will be thrilled, but I am not going to get my hopes up, activision is likely fucking with our emotions.

Sierra's coming back with a long-awaited sequel to Softporn Adventure. You've heard it here first! Don't tell anyone I told you!

Edited by GunsAreDrawn

Would be nice if you wrote an article about this, explaining where the went, you are the news guy after all.

Sierra published the No One Lives Forever games. A third would make me the most happy. Failing that, I'd be pleased with a new SWAT or MetalArms game.

@elwoodan: But what about the 3rd one? ... oh wait I see what you mean.

Posted by slot9

So the Sierra brand is coming back so Activision can launch a competitor to Uncharted?

No$talgia M I rite?

I want the return of the late 80's publisher Sierra, which localized and released some pretty cool Japanese PC games like Thexder and Silpheed. Silpheed even included the soundtrack on cassette, to show off the capabilities of the Roland MT-32 to people who didn't already own that sound card.

Lol was trying to refresh my memory on titles of theirs I played back in the day. Cant say I played or saw this one! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Softporn_Adventure

One day this joke might be funny again, but today is not that day.

And the question on everyones' minds: Why?

Not "Why?" as in, "I wonder what game they'll be (re)making." but just...well, why?

SWAT 5, please.

Posted by BaysideJr

Some kind of announcement

Please be Swat 5, please be Swat 5, please be Swat 5, please be Swat 5.

Agreed!

"Hey, guys, Rare is back!"

Yeah, I'm sure that this iteration of my beloved Sierra will be exactly like the old.

Dr. Brain is coming back! As foretold in a recent Bombcast email.

I do believe I would kill to see The Lost Mind of Dr. Brain come to GOG.com.

Sierra was such a huge part of my childhood.

@lunnington: To be very honest with you this was probably THE ONLY TIME I've made a Half Life 3 joke and I chose this time in particular because it didn't involve Valve at all. Hahaha!

Posted by Lunnington

@gaspower: You struck when it was least expected, I'll give you that.

Posted by Nasher02

So I'm guessing lot's of remastered Sierra games on the horizon

I really don't like the fact this is under Activision.

SWAT 5 NAO

Posted by TriBeard

How about a real Empire Earth 2 sequel. 3 was horrible.

Posted by That_Lamer

Some kind of announcement

Please be Swat 5, please be Swat 5, please be Swat 5, please be Swat 5.

We may not be linked by blood but truly, we are brothers.

Edited by hyperslug

I don't like game company names coming back as new labels for other groups... It's not the same Atari, 3D Realms, Apogee, Sierra or whatever... Build your own brand through awesome games instead of this time wasting bullshit.

Wow.. if it means Sierra adventure games being made bring it on yo

Would've had me hooked if they played the early title screen music with it.

@nights: thank you for making my day buddy... ARCer since ten.

BiLLabOng aka biLLa aka PrecisioN.

Saw the title of the article and just HAD to scan through the comments to see if anyone remembered the good old days.

Stopped playing spark when those stupid cta's took over and nobody played GO anymore . Never did check out the browser based game it turned into now and never will. But, if Sierra brought it back and made a new updated client with kickass servers, I'd go back in a heartbeat. Thanks for the nostalgia friend.

Edited by nofzac

Its going to be The Realm 2: Return of the Dial-up MMO. Can't wait to get a founders Balderic and do a FuFu run.

This looked great until I saw the Activision stamp.
