Quoting Kotaku:

LucasArts Games promsies to unveil a new and exciting game based on an existing franchise on Monday.

"Amazing news coming Monday! Super excited! You have no idea how tough it is not to start yelling about it! But it's secret! Until Monday!"

The game, they say, will be "awesome news for old school fans."


I'm crossing my fingers for TIE-Fighter II, would settle for a new Dark Forces (or "Jedi Knight" for the children) and fear another one of those Episode I-III **** games.

A new Indiana Jones would be cool, too. But then, there might be nuke-resistant fridges and lame sidekicks.

Seeing how there's a new Monkey Island, it would be interesting if it's Full Throttle or Grim Fandango. However, I'd really like to see a Tie Fighter / X-Wing type game with the graphics of today. I can just picture an attack on a Star Destroyer now.

tie fighter was the last really good game i saw from lucasarts.
if thats the new game, then they will have to their verry best to screw this one up. though they managed to do it each time with nearly every game since.
i can already see how they can add all special fancy things and ships that weren't in any movie, and that totally wouldn't fit either.

You think they will take a risk making a space sim with full support for all the peripherals you guys use for IL2?

Would be cool if they did.

Hmm, a bit a disappointed that it's not a full-blown sequel or upgrade. Good to see those first titles, but Battlefront II, and Star Wars Starfighter? Hardly classics but I guess they're just bringing their catalog over to Steam.

Oh my :eek: vague promises of Tentacle and Grim Fandango :D dependent on the success of the Monkey remake... so go buy it people!

Well it explains why Lucasarts were so protective when people were asking why they didnt release on GOG or Steam. Would prefer GOG myself though...

here to kill your monster
SWBF 2 suffered from a dodgy patch that only worked properly for the US version IIRC, splitting up the playerbase. The game has a v disappointing number of players on eur servers - where i think more ppl stick with the first game anyway.
If it all gets brought in line via steam it might see a small resurgence.

Then again it's only SWBF2 we're talking about - which I thought despite extra features was a disappointing step backwards from the first one in terms of gameplay.
But at least if they also decide to allow you to regester your old retail copy to steam , I wouldn't need to go to the effort of digging up the disks - if i ever fancied the odd evening of relentless sci-fi corridoor-based rocket spam.

@#$%@#$%.

I want a @#$@!#$% lightsaber game on the Wii.

That would be the most truly, utterly badass game in the history of gaming.


Failing that, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter II. I like the ability to have some non-linear game play. Story-based play bores me, generally. It's just not as interesting as the people who made it think it is.

There is Force Unleashed and that Clone Wars game it maybe be not what you expect from a lightsaber game but this is probably as close as it gets.

Also when did Lucas Arts actually make the last good game? I can't remember they only sold the licenses for Star Wars etc in the last years. The grand era of Lucas Arts is over and it will never come back ...
