What do you think about Disney taking over Lucasfilm?

Hope it's for good because we all have seen the resent actions of LucasArts what the gave us in the past few years.
I thought the episode VI was the best ending that may exist and now they trow up that they are gonna make 3 more movies.But when you look at all the books that came out and are supposed to be after episode VI , focused around Luke and more stuff from Star Wars universe this may turn out to be awesome if the movies are based on them or at least close to books, because i don't know a movie based on a book and made exactly as it's written in it.

I hope they make the right choices and make more good old star wars games like Republic Commando or Battlefront. But then this comes :
We will "focus more on social and mobile than we are on console". Star Wars farming game for phones ? Hope this is not real and just some kind of joke.

Im hoping they do something completely original. I feel authors in some of the EU got carried away with the stories. Thankfully in an interview, they said it will be an original tale.

Nice. An original story will be the best thing as long as they make it good like in the Avengers. Good that George Lucas won't be much involved in the making of the new episodes Razz

I think its a good thing someone finally grabs starwars out of george lucas's hands.
I don't know what the guy was doing, but clearly he didnt listen to his fans.

Disney buying them will mean pure funding, and compulsory projects, movies, games, and the likes. I totally for it and cant wait for the new content

Well I think didn't see this coming, Lucas Arts has been dropped:

I cried man, I did.
My personal wish is that after we release the MP component of this game, we do a proper, good SP campaign.
First to show that good SP Star Wars games can be made, second that good SP games with CE3 can be made.
Not much more room, I'm afraid, though we might get lucky and open our own games company and get hired b y Disney, ah who am I kidding.

Nothing to do about it but work hard and make this game good! We gotta show that big PC games still have a market.

Yes rocknroll, true mans also cry. I almost shed tears on these news.
What all this means that we might not be getting star wars game any soon if 1313 or First Strike are not bought in the next month or so because people will want to get another job fast and will leave all if they haven't done it already.
The thing is now that Disney may start selling rights to game devs but it will take time to make a new game.

All this will bring more pressure on us to actually show that there can be good star wars game like sceluk said because there will be a lot of dissapointed fans who will look into fan made games and mods.

I didn't physically cry, same as Sharky though, I felt that sadness you feel when something really good ends, or a friend goes abroad for a long time. SadSad
Like a lead weight.
In other GOOD news though, Raven released Jedi Academy and Outcast source code! Yeah Smile
http://www.slashgear.com/raven-software-releases-source-code-for-jedi-academy-and-jedi-knight-2-jedi-outcast-04276450/
DL'ing now
It will be great seeing how they did stuff, and I can always some of the logic for abilities and stuff.

Well this sucks, if anything I think this should strengthen our spirit. It looks like lucas arts will never get the chance to make that battlefront III like we always dreamed of. I have an article with an interview with a former employee. He cliams first assualt was 95 percent done.

[Link removed due to likely fake chance (and not worth reading anyways) <----who did this? how disrespectful to do that.]

I wanted to cry to, not becuase im soft but becuase so many memories came forth of the good lucas arts titles. Hopefully they don't pull anymore bullsh*t and start shuting down fan games like ours.

How disrespectful. Why would I link a fake article? And who are you to determine if its not worth reading? You know what just because the little guy gets a shot to interview a source doesn't mean its fake. Weather you believe it or not its not fake. The gloomwalkers aren't sicko's who would make up garbage, especially since they were just as heart broken as any lucas arts fan. Shame on whom ever did that. This information has already been forwarded to major gaming sites and ill have you know that the gloomwalkers appeared on 4 major gaming website when news prior of spark unlimited not making battlefront III and we were credited for doing a lot of that research. Just because something doesn't seem worthy to you, doesn't mean everyone else will feel the same way. We have something called freedom of speech and we let people decided if an article is worth reading, not one singular person. For anyone reading also, there wasn't any kind of pornography, fool language or inappropriate materiel in this article, things that truly are worthy of being removed.

Hmm, as co-leader, I request the link be put back up. It's up to who reads the article to decide whether he agrees with it or not.
Censoring (unless it porn, swearing or flaming), should be used lightly.
Everyone has a right to voice\write their opinion.

Remnant, I thought you'd removed the link, that's why I said nothing.

To All: Keep calm. I'm sure this was a bit of a hasty and unthought decision, rather than out of spite.

And as to the validity of the claims. I work in the game industry. I've worked on a game that was 100% done and it was canned before it was even released. Beta tests didn't work out.
We've had other games nearing finish as well and they got canned.

As someone else nicely put it in another forum, 'credibility nuked to the ground'. And not just by anyone but by people actually working in the media.
There are several inconsistencies which make this likely to be a fake, however, most of them are in the answers of the 'LA employee', not GloomWalkers. What struck me most was how he said something totally different (and at the same time totally vague) from what another former employee (when LA was still going) told Kotaku (who, I bet, are doing their facts checking) and why everything he said put LA in better light (as if to make everyone dislike Disney). The employee sounds a lot like a Star Wars fanboy who couldn't grasp why Disney closed LA (and couldn't see the possibly bright future for Star Wars games) and wanted to manipulate people into thinking Disney is 'evil' and LA was the victim.

This is no personal insult to you or anyone at GloomWalkers. None of the reasons I (or, from what I gather, anyone else) thinks this is a fake lies directly with GloomWalkers.

And in regards of 'hasty decision', yes it was. But I've followed the GameToast topic for a few days now. They picked out so much which was 'wrong' about this article which you (or anyone else from GloomWalkers) didn't respond to, I found it a hasty decision to put it up anywhere else. It's not like they want to stump GloomWalkers growth or anything.

The temptation of the dark side is strong.

Still not cool to pop the link man.
You could have said what you just explained up above (make more sense now, cheers Wink), as a response to the link, without deleting it.

Ah well, damage is done. No need for anyone to get worked up over it.
I understand remnant might be a bit pissed off, and I sort of grasp why you removed the link.

Shame about 1313 though, Boba Fett's cool and all, but he might actually stay dead this time, since the whole continuity is gonna be reworked. Sucks. I liked most of the EU (excluding Chewy's death, and the whole second Civil War arc, bleh. Oh yeah and Palpatine's clone BS).

I wasn't mad at anyone at gametoast, the admin fusion was really cool with me. They didn't really pull anything apart, they just had thier own opinions about it, as for the nuke as fusion put it, he just wanted a little more evidence for it. Though that's not my problem, that's something the author of the article needs to adress not me. So I had no reason to be mad at them.

Honestly Im not even mad at gametoast or anyone there. They let me have an opinion and they kept the link up for anyone to judge for themselves. Nah, my little steam comes form this comment made on this website:

"and not worth reading anyways" and then removes the link.

So becuase a few other people said it wasn't good(also the author took the time to correct much of the article's spelling errors recently), suddenly that applies to everyone else's opinion? There was a fair share of people who liked it to on there last time I checked. Im just saying, its not like reading it would change anyones views or minds, but at least they would have a chance/choice to read it. The link itself happens to still be on gametoast to. Whoever did this could have just said "I didn't like it, it seems a little fishey to me". A perfectly respectful answer and at the same time they express thier opinion. However that wasn't the case, "lets just remove it becuase i read some guys didn't like it and also I didn't like it, you guys wont have a chance read it for yourselves either ". So whenever I post a link to anything, even something like ign or kotaku, I shouldn't becuase of the chance you wont like it? Just saying man, doesn't seem all that fair and it was rude in my opinion. It's not a matter if the article was fake, legit, garbage or god's holy letter sent by angels, nah its the fact that it was removed and that no one is allowed to judge it for themselves. You guys could have read it and all said it was trash or the most amazing story ever, but the fact is you don't have that chance/choice to do so becuase it was removed. That's my beef and I really would have preferred not to make any kind of deal out of it. I hope you excuse me if I express myself a little and you really do have my aplogies for getting off topic.

Working 'in the media' doesn't mean they write articles. There are loads of other jobs in that business. I have read at least one article from Teancum though.

The link was removed due to the high chance that it's fake. 'Not worth reading' was my personal comment (which maybe would have fit into a comment better and which I've 'justified' in my last reply) on the article.

The link on GameToast was removed, and I'll take the same stance as the admin there, you can find it on Google if you really want to read it.

I'll better be safe than sorry on something which seems like artificially produced hate against companies like Disney (which, while it has reasons in some cases, I'm fed up with) and reduce it to a minimum.

I have nothing against rumors or speculation or whatever. Stating something as fact which might very well not be a fact is the problem (which GloomWalkers, or rather the source GloomWalkers think was a LA employee, did).

Ande, I have to disagree. They're a news site so they obviously would remove unverified\incorrect info links.
We're not. Remnant never said it was fact. He just said he had an interview with an employee who 'claimed' (claimed is the word), that it was 95% done. Sure the employee did, but it was on GloomWalkers, not here.

I'm not telling anyone to repost the link or anything, as you said, we can google it. Though I hope everyone realises that just deleting links and saying they suck is not professional at all, and it leads to this crap.

Baseless flaming against Disney is unwarranted as well, I agree with you there, though you also have to realise that while Disney rock at making films, they suck at games.

I hope that we can all put this behind us and continue working as a team. Everyone makes mistakes.

Cheers Smile

Since rocknroll wants to read it, here you go.

http://www.gwgnetwork.com/2013/04/the-future-of-star-wars-gaming-an-exclusive-interview-with-former-lucasarts-employee/

I had no involvement with this article being written and as with most pieces of information, take it as you will. I would think at the least, maybe you would get a kick out of it or maybe you will like it(or dislike it). I have requested that the author post proof of this being real, since it is a very reasonable repsonse to take it with a grain of salt.

Also I found this article that is pretty interesting. It is lucas arts related and its more of a personal note to the people leaving the company.
