Default RIP LucasArts

Today is a sad day for the gaming indistry I think. Disney has killed off LucasArts so that they can focus on licensing (read: Whoring) out the Star Wars IP.

They havent come out with anything really recent but LucasArts and I have a lot of history and a lot of good games under their belt. So I will have a drink later on today for them and probably start a replay of one of their gems. Heres to you LucasArts.

Mind you LucasArts didn't really have any good games since the first force unleashed...

Tie Fighter!
X-Wing!
X-Wing vs Tie Fighter!

How the mighty have fallen.

I wonder what this means for that wicked looking shooter they had in development.

Yah that sucks. I was looking forward to Uncharted a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Damn is right! That game looked promising and I was looking forward to it.
Why they would cancel something in the middle of production makes no sense.
