E3 and LEC 19 Apr, 2001, 09:13 / 24 comments

Well me and a team of intrepid mojoites will be at e3 to bring you the scoops, but LucasArts will not be waiting for the show to announce all their titles. Last year LEC ran a "road to E3" run up type thing, where they announced one new game a week leading up the Expo. This year a similar tactic will be used, so keep your eyes peeled and your brains in gear - for new titles at LucasArts.com in the next few weeks!

    Theforce.net reports that: Star Wars: Bounty Hunter Tue, Apr 17, 01 10:31:58 PM EDT Bryan Wahrer of Alderaan Online tells us that two new trademarks were just registered by Lucas Licensing. Jedinet also found Sunday that 'Star Wars: Bounty Hunter' and 'Bounty Hunter' both have a register date of April 3, 2001. The Goods and Services description looks like it's going to be some kind of video game. After being able to confirm it, here at TFN have to wonder: perhaps this is the new E3 title they're going to announce? Sounds great! (Sound cool!)

    Maybe this is a stupid question, but where the heck does E3 happen (i.e. what city)?
  • Professor Yoda on 20 Apr, 2001, 08:14…
    Never mind; it occured to me to actually check the E3 website. Godblastit, I go to college in Los Angeles, but the semester ends soon and housing contracts expire on the 8th. How often do you actually wish you had ten *additional* days of school.

    LucasArts is going to announce at E# that they are bringing back Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, Steve Purcell and Michael Land for the last installment in the Monkey Island saga - "The DEFINITIVE Monkey Island 3." Well, at least I keep dreaming... :)
  • LGH on 19 Apr, 2001, 22:34…
    Actually, I'm not sure I'd even like that. Oh yeah, it would be cool to have all theres people back! But I wouln't like Monkey 3 and 4 to be "erased", if you get what I mean...
  • Sloth on 20 Apr, 2001, 20:12…
    They wouldn't be erased, they would probably just be Guybrush's halucinations caused by the carnival... or something.
  • Chunkey Monkey on 21 Apr, 2001, 03:54…
    Yeah they could be the it was all a dream. Guybrush wakes up still in the carnival and Ron does HIS story.
  • Trapezoid on 21 Apr, 2001, 04:04…
    Does Ron even really have a story? I was under the impression that he just has some basic concepts and ideas, most of which could probably be applied to the existing story.
  • Sloth on 21 Apr, 2001, 21:06…
    All I know is, I want Ron to make his MI3 just so he can explain just what the hell the ending of MI2 is all about...
  • Remi O on 22 Apr, 2001, 20:25…
    I'd be perfectly happy if he chose just to tell us what the ending meant, his MI3 story and what the secret is.
  • maclaine on 23 Apr, 2001, 21:57…
    I would be VERY disappointed, if after all these years, he just did that. MI2 ending is perfect, and I want a NEW GAME!!!
  • Remi O on 24 Apr, 2001, 02:36…
    Right... But what are the odds for that?
  • penbrook on 19 Apr, 2001, 20:44…
    nice but never

    Just under 4 weeks until we're off to LA and E3! :)
  • invisibelle on 24 Apr, 2001, 19:04…
    I'm 19. Can I go to E3?
  • mercatfat on 20 Apr, 2001, 00:45…
    Damn E3 and their 'Have to be 18 to attend' rules.
  • Trapezoid on 20 Apr, 2001, 14:55…
    Yeah, what's up with that? Aren't most the games there aimed at teenage boys?
  • Remi O on 20 Apr, 2001, 15:40…
    Most game players are in their mid 20s-30s, so I sorta doubt that.
  • mercatfat on 20 Apr, 2001, 16:08…
    You're kidding, right?
  • Swordmaster on 24 Apr, 2001, 06:48…
    The average age of a game player in the United States is 28 years. Also, 43 percent of U.S. game players are women.
  • Trapezoid on 24 Apr, 2001, 19:26…
    Really? Well, what percent are teenagers?
  • Remi O on 20 Apr, 2001, 17:02…
    Nope.
  • Maximar on 20 Apr, 2001, 18:30…
    It isn't called a TRADE SHOW for nothing :P However, there should be a CeBit-like consumer event for gaming without any of those industry-only rules :)
