New Star Wars Game in the Works

Visceral-GamesLately some news has been popping up for a new Star Wars video game that EA is working on. First it was announced that Amy Hennig would be the Creative Director on a new Star Wars project…

Over the last few weeks, Amy and I have spent a lot of time talking about what her first project would be. There are a lot of different directions we could have gone, but I could sense that what really excited her about this opportunity (because let’s face it, we weren’t the only ones knocking at her door) was Star Wars. Amy’s a huge fan. We happen to be making a Star Wars game. Just thinking about the possibilities made both of us even more excited about having her join the team.

Later on, she revealed on Twitter that Todd Stashwick would be working on the project as a co-writer. Continue Reading New Star Wars Game in the Works…

darth-maul-damage-concept-artGame Informer has posted some concept art form the canceled Darth Maul game by Red Fly Studio. There’s some interesting, and even controversial, art from characters to landscapes. There’s a very strange re-design of Darth Krayt, an Imperial officer who looks like Ralph Fiennes, and some images of Maul in his cyborg stage. You can check them out here.

Podcasts in Review

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Their “Superman Dies and Kermit is Framed” episode covers a little bit of Superman as they talk about the 1992 graphic novel The Death of Superman and whether DC should use that in their next movie. From there, they delve into the idea of television shows with movie endings before getting into some serious Muppets talk with special guest Ryan Dosier. It’s an entertaining episode and I really enjoyed the Muppets discussion.

The “Getting Inside Batman’s Head” episode changes gears as they dive into the Dark Knight. This is a really meaty episode as they cover some very cool insights into the character that is Batman with their special guest Dr. Travis Langley. If you’re a Batman fan, you will not want to miss this one.

Bombad Radio: Episode 135 continues their EU book series by covering some of the more prominent tie-in books for the Original Trilogy era. This includes a book-by-book breakdown of the Han Solo Trilogy written by A.C. Crispin, an overview of Shadows of the Empire by Steve Perry and some discussion of the Bounty Hunter Wars and Tales of anthologies. The Han Solo Trilogy gets focused on the most, and for good reason: it’s a great series. There are a few minor audio problems in this episode, but it’s still a good one to check out for those interested in the EU books set around the original films. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

The Darth Maul Game That Could Have Been

IGN broke a story about a game project that Red Fly started which would have starred Darth Maul and went under the working title Damage. The game would have come out in 2010, but was canceled. Interestingly enough, the story concept for the game included other Sith such as Darth Krayt and Darth Talon at one point and would have tackled the origins of Darth Maul. Star Wars Underworld has a nice write-up on the incident. Below, you can check out the test footage of the game.
