I picked this up about 15 years ago, which was made for DVD players at the time. I never really cared to play it on a remote like that because it just didn't feel right. So, tonight I decided to bust out Dragon's Lair and try playing it on Xbox 360 console and it was far more intuitive here which made for a better game play experience for me.

The game-play on the DVD itself is a master from the original Laser Disk game from the Arcade Cabinet in the 80's. There are some differences though. I would say about 95% of the moves are the same and translate well. It was such a trip to instinctively nail the moves without thinking from having them permanently embedded into my DNA from all those hours playing the game as a kid. The other difference is the on screen prompt that the original game did not have. Also missing were the Beep Sound FX that would signify when you made a move.

Just a really cool feeling to play Dragon's Lair on a huge TV screen. Up next is Space Ace, which I also bought the same day as well. A few years later, the company released a 20 Anniversary Edition Box Set that had Dragon's Lair, Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp and Space Ace (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/video-games/space-ace/msg5942/#msg5942). I picked this up as well because the only way I could buy Time Warp was to get the Set.

Dragon's Lair 3D: Return to the Lair (GameCube)

This came out in 2000 for the GameCube. I wasn't playing on consoles at this time and I never owned a GC. So, I never even knew that there was this particular version of the game. It looks cool and makes me wonder if Xbox would ever revisit this game now, using today technology. I'd be down for this in a heartbeat.

Dragon's Lair: The Movie Kickstarter Launched - IGN News

Dragon's Lair as a full length feature was never at the top of my list of things I'd want to see. But this news does make me want to see it happen now given how much money I forked into the Original Cabinet game. I'd watch it for sure if it ever sees the light of day.

Is There Enough Interest to Fund a Dragon's Lair Movie? - Game Scoop!

Makes sense that the Kickstarter price goal is for a Trailer to submit to studio's. I thought it was to make a feature from what they got from fans. Was kind of scratching my head that they could make a film for $500k in this day and age.
