    every1's been comparing this one to metroid prime ... i dont see why. i'd compare it to doom (except that doom was great) ... metroid is SO much deeper than this. although the "darker" side of star wars does seem interesting, no s&m2=no more star wars games for me

    Very funny :-D. Due to recent Lucas events, i am not going to buy the game until it releases in "classic collection". That will teach them to consider marketing only.
    But it outlooks not so bad I admit...
  • Shanty on 22 Mar, 2004, 09:31…
    I still say the LucasKarts game will sell like hotcakes.
  • Bobo Donkey? on 23 Mar, 2004, 06:46…
    I'd like to see what it'd be like.
  • Kingzjester on 23 Mar, 2004, 12:49…
    One thing is certain, it will surely have no adventure game characters because of some underlying economic situations they management considered.
  • Bobo Donkey? on 24 Mar, 2004, 10:22…
    Oh Fecking hell. And I was looking forward to riding the Bone Wagon around Cocytus, or racing Boston Low in his blue spherical tram across the area from the DOTT intro whilst driving the DeSoto through a barn. And what about Ben riding through the gates of hell from Monkey Island whilst overtaking Zak McKracken and Guybrush Threepwood?

    If Amazon Queen had been a LucasArts game (and it nearly was) that would have been interesting as well.
  • Bobo Donkey? on 24 Mar, 2004, 10:24…
    I'm also wondering what "Animutation Racing?" would be like }:?)
  • Kingzjester on 24 Mar, 2004, 21:21…
    no, sorry, no.
  • Kingzjester on 23 Mar, 2004, 12:50…
    FUCK! Could you, like, bring back the edit button?! Please?! Ha?!
  • Jake on 23 Mar, 2004, 17:31…
    DJG forgot how he did it the first time and couldn't be bothered to re-do it. I suggest bugging him about it.
  • Blaze^ on 22 Mar, 2004, 07:36…
    You should have included this in the orignal post!
  • MonkeyMug on 21 Mar, 2004, 22:55…
    Spaff, did I ever tell you your my hero?
  • spaff on 22 Mar, 2004, 07:01…
    just now.
  • Entity on 21 Mar, 2004, 21:31…
    Did LucasArts send you an advance list of their E3 line up. :)
  • Gabez on 21 Mar, 2004, 19:26…
    Well, I might have bought this game before, but now, no way.
  • monkeyboobs on 21 Mar, 2004, 20:06…
    maybe you're interested that i'm not interested in this game, too ;p
  • monkeyboobs on 21 Mar, 2004, 20:09…
    hehe, i want a s+m first person teamshooter with coop mode. yeah baby!
  • ED on 21 Mar, 2004, 18:04…
    wow, this game is going to shift millions. Its so much more diverse than the game they stole the orginal title from as it contains star wars characters. I mean of the current market place realities and underlying economic considerations show that a FPS will sell very well in the already saturated market for them.
  • Shanty on 21 Mar, 2004, 17:56…
    Brutal.
  • scaryrobot on 23 Mar, 2004, 19:16…
    But very true to life.
  • Shanty on 25 Mar, 2004, 14:50…
    Thanks, I've been waiting for that.
  • Josty on 21 Mar, 2004, 17:54…
    Wow, it's Metroid Prime! The originality of Lucasarts is staggering.
  • Kingzjester on 21 Mar, 2004, 18:38…
    Flabbergasting even!
  • Shanty on 21 Mar, 2004, 18:49…
    Astounding!!
  • Paco on 21 Mar, 2004, 17:35…
    I couldn't care less
  • Treintje on 22 Mar, 2004, 16:44…
    Neither can I. *Sigh* I feel down when I read news like this.
    By the way, what IS interesting is that the petition has over 20000 signatures. Multiplied by $50 makes ..... a lot. Maybe they'll wake up?
  • csenosiain on 22 Mar, 2004, 22:14…
    THAT'S A MILLION DOLLARS!
  • RumRogerz on 23 Mar, 2004, 11:19…
    That's amillion dollars JUST from the petition. Just imagine how much more they will sell from the people who don't even know of the petition!
    Morons. The lot of them!
