Well, that's a bit of a bummer. So it points nowhere to who's doing it now.

More umming and arring over BF3.
If this is indeed true, and there is a time in the future when BF3 is released, it had better not be cr*p after all this drama.

A bummer? That is amazing knews, Pandemic wont be able to ruin the third one! Hopefully Free Radical(Crytek UK) will pick it up again. I'm afraid of Rebellion getting their slimy hands on the game.

Thank God for Rebellion not getting it.

Maybe Activision will get it?...

If pandemic and rebellion arent doing it and its still being developed, than there just may be hope that it wont totally blow.

Well, I'm glad to have helped provide some info. Let's hope for the best...

So Rebellion and Pandemic, the two who seemed most likely, aren't doing it. Are there any other really decent developers who won't butcher it?

Free Radical went under. They're probably not doing it anymore.

Free Radical became Crytek UK, LA might give it back to them.

True, but I don't have my hopes up. FR actually had a good game in development, but there's no telling what might happen now.

I wonder how much different Star Wars games would be WITHOUT Lucasarts in control.

It is LA...

With that in mind, let's think.

I think our best bet is if Free radical took the project back, with crytech and all

With that in mind, let's think.

To TSR/shukkoku: Agreed, considering the circumstances. :D

If that's true, then the hope of a good game might not be completely lost. Maybe we'll also get back the land-to-space tech.

I had no problems with Pandemic other than Battlefront II added to much new stuff that was not in the 6 movies. Those Republic and Empire Tanks were a stupid addition. Almost starting to look like a military/futuristic sci-fiction war game with those. Definitely ruined it. I was expecting AT-AT, AT-ST, Probots, Imperial Speeder Bikes, etc. for ground battles. PS2 graphics were about what I was expecting. I would think any new battlefront series game for PS3 would have superior graphics similar or better than The Force Unleashed.

What is Star Wars and Star Wars themed games other than a military/futuristic sci-fi war game/genre?...

They had what you wanted, other than Probots, which wouldn't really be that great, unless they somehow called in a Probot instead of recon droid? It still doesn't work.

What you said, joe, is what they did... so... what are you saying?

No, Jhredmo, you've got it wall wrong. After all, the movies did take place

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

If you think that they can actually make a series of games using the original content only, then maybe you should do a little research. If they do what you say, then we'll just end up with a repeat of SWBFI & II with better graphics. Thanks, but no thanks.

What do you mean, "I've got it w(all) wrong" ?

You're saying the movies aren't military/futuristic? Okay... in appearance. You know the only time they compare times is during the intro, but other than that, it's completely ahead of us in technology, so it is, for lack of a better word, futuristic. I think we can handle just using that term, unless you have a better alternative. You don't need to correct me. I've seen a couple of the movies...

(I'm so sorry I used the word futuristic. I'll just say ancient. Does that work better for you, bokken?)

Also, who is your last two sentences directed at? If it's me, you've lost me there. Though I think you're talking about/to joe, I agree, regardless.

lol the Long time Ago quote was kind of a joke, and the last 2 sentences were @ Joe.

I meant the vehicles and starships that were designed for the previous battlefront games that were not in the movies were terrible looking and did not look like star wars vehicles in my opnion. They look like vehicles of today in design. The whole Republic and Empire tanks is what tees me off especially replacing the AT-ST Walkers that were in Yavin 4 maps in Battlefront 1 with Tanks in Battlefront 2. At least the AT-XT and AT-PT Walkers from other EU material looked star wars style and design.

It's called a typo :D
It's not in the future, it's a long time ago, so you've got it all wrong...humor, Jhredmo, humor. Or has your time on LF made the concept of the joke a trifle redundant?

If they give the game back to Free Radical Aka. Crytek UK we can atleast get the fly from the ground to space because that technology stayed in Free Radical and wasn't handed over to the next developer so there's still hope.

LordJhredmo
03-21-2009, 08:28 PM
I didn't get the humour, bokken, and I still don't, but no, it hasn't become redundant. (Love your quote, by the way. Mind adding the author's name to the end? :))

Let's just keep our eyes open and hope, eh?

I like Padmemic because they had sweet graphics unlike Rebellion or whoever made RS

I could care less about the graphics, I want good game play, and more depth than BFII.

Bokken

The graphics weren't even that great, if you compare something that fans made (1.3 Patch)to what the actual developers made. There have been worse tragedies than games with bad graphics.

Sweet Graphics? ^ Is this a joke? Look at the latest Pandemic game, LOTR: Conquest. While it is a fun game I enjoy playing, the graphics are not nearly up to par with older games like COD4, Crysis, and plenty others. Pandemic has never really made any games with breathtaking technology.
