Okay, everybody. I woke up and realized one mid-summer afternoon, that SSLF doesn't have a "Video Game News Topic." You knows, where people can post news about their favorite console or rumors that aren't ready to have their own topic. It would certainly reduce Red Base's clutter, wouldn't it? tongue.gif

For starters, did anybody hear about this?

While this is sort of a good idea, this sort of clutter is good for Red Base.

I'll leave this open, regardless, and hope it gets lots of traffic!

Don't get your hopes up, it will probably be the same engine as MW2 and play the same.

I played the Beta. The game is pretty cool, but not something I'd pay for, so this might be fun if it isn't too restrictive.

Games really shouldn't try to compete against other games to break sales. I feel it deters from the main focus, which is making something fun. Anyway, I am really excited to see what Infinity Ward does which it's new IP or whatever. Nice to see developers step outside of what they're used to.

Director of Republic Commando returns to LucasArts. Possible RC sequel?

Could a Republic Commando sequel be coming?

Related Topics – Star Wars Republic Commando, Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider franchise director Tim Longo has left Crystal Dynamics to accept the mantle of creative director at LucasArts on an unannounced project. Longo revealed the move in a twitter post earlier this month. Longo leaves the Tomb Raider project with the design likely set for the most part as the game enters what should be the production push toward an anticipated release later this year.

As Longo noted, this is a return engagement with LucasArts. During his previous stint with the company he served as first lead designer and then director on Star Wars: Republic Commando. The game earned many fans with its campaign that let players become part of an elite squad of clone soldiers who took on special missions set at the same time as the events in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Since then, rumors of a sequel have come and gone. Could Longo's hiring indicate a Republic Commando 2 is indeed in the works again?

His arrival potentially coincides with another interesting development today. LucasArts announced it has licensed Unreal Engine 3 from Epic Games for multiple upcoming projects according to a news release. Zak Phelps, director of technology at LucasArts, said of the move, "Unreal Engine 3 is a forward-looking solution that shortens the path between inspiration and execution on a wide variety of gaming platforms."

So, the former Republic Commando director has returned to LucasArts and the company has handed him one of the preeminent modern shooter engines to play with. It's all circumstantial evidence, to be sure, but with plenty of reason to be hopeful.


Do note that this news is from earlier this year (April).

Notch is being sued by Bethesda Softworks for trying to trademark "Scrolls".

Notch wants to settle this dispute with a game of Quake 3. Three of Bethesda's best players versus three of Mojang's best warriors. If they lose, they need to drop the lawsuit. If Bethesda wins, Mojang'll change the name of Scrolls to something they're cool with.

I really, really hope that Bethesda takes them up on that offer. It probably won't happen, but it'd be the coolest thing ever.

I agree so much. Then, if it became common place, companies would have to hire quake mercenaries.

I am a huge Steam gamer.

But in this case I don't even care mayun, if Battlefield 3 was restricted to only the N64 I'd still get it.

Not to sound like a Notch-worshipper, but that guy just scored a few respect points from me. If it does work out I want that to be the new way to settle video-game related lawsuits.

While I think the lawsuit is stupid to begin with, so is a Quake deathmatch. It would just be easier to fly to Bethesda headquarters and engage in fisticuffs.

You guys see this? Guild Wars 2 looks awesome. Never seen a MMO have such battles. Up to 100 players can be in a battle and the battle will scale up to suit the opponents. Awesome. And well its free to play online. No fees every month.
