Let's review a game together...
It pleases me to know that despite the shiny circular piece of crap inside every copy of Kinect Star Wars, there’s still a place where the folks responsible for the brilliant “Girl Vader” short can feel like the winners they really are. The 8th Annual Game Marketing Awards took place yesterday at the 2013 Game Marketing Conference, which you folks should have already known about, considering the attendees.
Disney has laid off the staff of LucasArts and cancelled all current projects. Staff were informed of the shutdown this morning, according to a reliable Kotaku source. Some 150 people were laid off, and both of the studio’s current projects — Star Wars: First Assault and Star Wars 1313 — were cancelled. Disney will still use the LucasArts name to license games, but the studio is no more.
Sure, 2012 was a year rife with disappointments. But it was also filled with surprises of the best sort. Since we brought everyone down last week with our list of the biggest disappointments of the year, we thought it only proper to also share the best, most welcome surprises.
The repercussions of Disney’s acquisition on Lucasarts, Lucasfilm’s game division, will no doubt be felt eventually — but in the short term, with certain games already deep in production? We’d expect games like Star Wars 1313 to be left well alone for the time being. According to Lucasarts itself, it’s business as usual for the high budget Star Wars title focusing on the world of bounty hunters.
It’s always pretty clean and well-lit in Star Wars movies, isn’t it? Even a place as wretched as the Mos Eisley cantina seems like it wouldn’t have a problem passing a health code inspection. So, where does all the dirt go in the Skywalker-verse? Apparently, it’s all going into Star Wars 1313.
