Upcoming Star Wars 1313 video game getting some helping hands from all facets of LucasFilms.Upcoming Star Wars 1313 video game getting some helping hands from all facets of LucasFilms.

Now that Disney has acquired LucasArts some interesting news is starting to trickle out regarding their games division. It seems that all of the different entities under LucasFilms such as Industrial Light and Magic, Skywalker Sound, Lucas Animation, and LucasArts are all collobarating on this next generation title. Star Wars 1313 will take place in the seedy underbelly of Corsuscant which alone sounds like an interesting premise. Whatever does come out of this Disney/Lucas effort it will most likely be better than The Force Unleashed 2 by default (zing).

George Lucas pulls the plug on Star Wars movie marathon over in Brooklyn.George Lucas pulls the plug on Star Wars movie marathon over in Brooklyn.

Organizers claim Lucasfilm's legal stormtroopers fired off a cease-and-desist order just two days before the event. Organizers of the 13-hour screening, which had been slated for the Wicked Monk in Bay Ridge on July 3, promptly called it off. The order cited copyright infringements and added that there was a moratorium on public 'Star Wars' screenings.

This should be a happy day for all fans of the Monkey Island franchise. The previous special edition of Monkey Island for Xbox 360 (and practically all other major platforms) was a joy to play. Guybrush even has a new haircut this time around.

It wasn’t bad enough that he made Greedo shoot first; now he wants to mess around with the whole look and feel of the movies. If we haven’t made our case yet, we have but three more words for you: 3D Jar Jar.

A seventy minute video review as to why The Phantom Menace was absolutely horrible.A seventy minute video review as to why The Phantom Menace was absolutely horrible.

For those of us who consider the the original trilogy the gospel of movies this review is a great and entertaining watch. It's also funny as hell. Now sit back, grab some blue milk, and enjoy.

To say that I was a big fan of the first game is a bit of an understatement. I'll be buying this the day it comes out which of course has yet to be revealed (2010 is the only date thus far). LucasArts has a high resolution version of the trailer over on their site for those so inclined.

Since I figured I had blown the interview, I had nothing to lose. So I did my cover letter in the form of a semi-graphic adventure. I drew the pictures on my Koala pad, and printed the whole thing out on my Atari 800 dot-matrix printer.

LucasArts pulls the curtain back on new puzzle game.LucasArts pulls the curtain back on new puzzle game.

An interesting looking puzzle/platformer coming to XBLA and PC this October. Have a look at some gameplay footage that was recently posted. It's so nice to see LucasArts churning out games that are not entirely Star Wars related.

Live action Star Wars television series might be hitting the air in 2012.Live action Star Wars television series might be hitting the air in 2012.

The show is rumored to be of the hour-long drama variety and may feature very few characters (if any) from the existing Star Wars universe.  Sounds good so far. Note to LucasFilm: please follow The Force Unleashed plotline.

By the time I came home from work they were not only talking like Jar Jar but also writing phrases as Jar Jar would speak them, and talking animatedly with each other about how funny Jar Jar was.
