Also the starwars news updating folks wil be here shortly. Infact they should contact me so training can begin.
This I assume is the first of their game anouncements, but is also the first game anounced for the PC since the scrapping of OBI WAN. Perhaps fans of the Starwars Universe can be a little bit happier now.
This port will be available pretty soon and will feature better resolution, graphics and menu system. w00t!
LucasArts is going to announce several new games for several platforms, and one of those games will appear on PS2, and it's going to be somewhat of a surprise. We promised not to say anything yet, but think of it this way, when was the last time you saw a graphic adventure on PS2? You soon will. Another hint: "Hoo-hoo-hoo-he-he-he-he haw haw haw-haaaaw!!!!!"If we assume that last hint is an evil laugh we can only go on to assume that EMI is to be ported to a console. What else is held in store for us over the coming weeks?
There's something big on the horizon. LucasArts Entertainment Company is about to make an incredibly exciting game announcement! We wish we could tell you more, but that would ruin all the fun. Keep an eye on LucasArts.com over the next few weeks for this and several other exciting announcements
What could this be? Another graphic adventure perhaps? or just another Starwars game? - personally I think its too early before the release of Episode2 to annouce a game for it.. What could it be?

The atmosphere of the game is appropriately cheesy, with a jazzy musical score and colorful cartoon graphics. Anyone following the comic series will be right at home with the game's visuals. A few scenes also include 3D rendered elements which blend in surprisingly well
Prove your battle skills against more than 50 vehicles including all-new, never-before-seen craft. Take part in an exhilarating story-driven flight adventure that places you alternately in the roles of three mismatched starfighter pilots, each with personal vendettas against the Trade Federation who must learn to work together to repel the invasion of the Naboo system. To succeed, you must prevail in thrilling dogfights using your piloting skills to outwit opponents.
I want to thank all those who volunteered their valuble time and considerable talent and energy for my little project. I ask that you give me another month to go through my move and I will begin the game in earnst.
Bill was the lead background artist on the classic Curse of Monkey Island.

I'd just like to add that we all wish Blll the best of luck at Arena.net, i'd also like to kiss some ass and say thanks for all the great art :P - Spaff
But its really just what happened when i tried to talk about the game. Please, read the rant, and post your comments on it.
Bombad Racing, the fantastic kiddy kart style racer has been canned for production on the DC but it still seems to be going strong. The LEC Product Spotlight page for bombad has some new concept art and an interview with Francis Hsu, the Concept artist.
Q: How did you come up with the idea to draw big-headed Star Wars characters?
A: Because big heads are cute. No, really, I got my inspiration from Mario Kart - it's the only kart racing game I like
We knew it all along didn't we boys and girls?
We will accept big & small companies alike.
Allergic to Life currently has the famous Star Wars Gangsta rap on it. I highly suggest you check it out if you haven't already, yo.
Dreamcast VMU development groupVM2 has created a very fun port of X-Wing for the VMU. It's availible only on Booyaka, and you'll need a free account there to access get the file. There are several other Star Wars games, but X-Wing is certainly the best. It's one of the about 1000 reasons that make the Dreamcast much better than a certain other 128 bit console.
Finally, PC Format mentioned us in a sidebar (scan). Also mentioned were The Scumm Bar and The World of Monkey Island.
Comment: I'm sorry i didnt post this sooner, i had the scan a week or so ago, whoops! thanks bone_man, and countless others who sent it to me! - Spaff

Dreamcast owners who have been waiting for some kart racing action, Star Wars-style, may become angry with this tidbit... and we know where anger leads don't we? Star Wars: Super Bombad Racing has been canned for the Dreamcast, though Lucasarts is still planning to release the game on the PC and PS2 for a Spring/Summer release this year.
Thanks for everyone that entered, bad luck if you didn't win, although more contests will be launched soon! Many thanks to the guys 'n girls over at LucasArts for their support.
If you'd like to see some of the other entries, please leave a comment! maybe we can vote on the worst one and give them a booby prize?!?
first is that you can access some missing lines of script from EMI, but not in the English version of the game! and the second involves skins of Guybrush for the Sims .. wierd!
Head on over to The ScummBar for all the info!
