LucasArts has just announced another E3 game.

Secret Weapons Over Normandy (http://www.lucasarts.com/products/normandy/)

It looks like a very interesting game and it adds a nice mix to all the new games coming out.

And, it's coming out for PC all you non-console people. :)

I'm hoping it's just an in-depth Rogue Squadron with a thick slab of WWII thrown on top(because I won't be able to get RS3 :p). Just my opinion though.....

What do you all think about this game?

Com Raven

It's from Larry Holland, so naturally it is on my to-watch-list :)

Taos
04-20-2003, 01:11 PM
I think I'm going to be getting it. It's an LEC game, so it has to be worth checking out. :)

I need a good flight game anyways. :)

StormHammer
04-20-2003, 01:27 PM
I'm not really into flight games, per se. I don't mind a few flying elements sandwiched between some FPS action (like Red Faction), and the closest I'll be getting to flying is in the upcoming FPS/Space combat hybrid Mace Griffin, which should be cool.

Thanks for the heads-up anyway.

If they happen to put up any information about a proper PC Bounty Hunter or Star Wars Commando game...email me immediately. :D

Hmm, I dunno. I would be more interested if they had released a more original title, but I've seen these flight sims all before. That being said, it'll probably turn out to be a great game (knowing LucasArts), but like Storm I'm not too keen on realistic flight sims.

Taos
04-20-2003, 02:47 PM
Guys, it's not a flight simulator.....it's like Rogue Squadron or XWA with WWII planes. ;)

Which automatically makes it a great game. ;)

I haven't played a good flight game in a loooong time. :(

But, that might change soon.......:)

It kinda looks like Crimson Skies.....

Darth Simpson
04-22-2003, 06:55 AM
That's what I was thinking too. Crimson Skies was a lot of fun though, even though it wasn't realistic.

I'll keep an eye on this one.

Don't forget to look there for a bit of info, and a new Gold Guy Animation.

:D

It looks like a great game. It's about time LucasArts branches off into games like this one.

*adds on to "GET IT" list*

Those gold guy animations are cool! I can't wait to see more of those for the other games they don't have up yet......like KOTOR. :D

Something else that I just read about this game that sounds cool is the 30 + levels you get to play on! That's fun for hours! :)

30 levels? :eek:

Man, that will be fun for a loooong time. Plus MP if it has it.

This game is starting to look better than previously thought....

Com Raven
04-23-2003, 10:06 AM
Complicated?

Guys, this is no simulation!

Swat
04-24-2003, 04:20 AM
in short, a simple a** kicking game

Swat
04-24-2003, 04:42 AM
called Full Throttle: Hell on Wheels www.lucasarts.com/e3/
plus a new gold guy animation

i've come to notice that there are 6 more boxes at the E3 pg. are there gonna be so many new games?

Com Raven
04-24-2003, 09:32 AM
Not all new....

Wrath should fill one box, and it's not new...

We also know that Sam & Max 2 will fill one :)

Plus of course Rebel Strike :)

Com Raven
04-24-2003, 09:48 AM
Yeah :)

Swat
04-24-2003, 12:38 PM
like Jedi once said, what's Wrath?

Taos
04-24-2003, 02:17 PM
Ah threads merged. :cool:

Also, I don't know what to think of this new one Full Throttle: Hell on Wheels.....it looks ok, I'm just going to have to read up on it before I decide to get it or not. :)

Com Raven
04-24-2003, 02:19 PM
http://www.collectivestudios.com/wrath/html/index.htm

Unfortunately, the latest screens are from late 2001, but they still look good, so the game should be a true looker thses days...

Jedi Apprentice
04-24-2003, 11:26 PM
I knew the merge would come....:p

I am also kind've hesitant about the new Full Throttle. Especially just going by the title. :rolleyes:

And Wrath, while an interesting game(seems to be), it doesn't seem to a be a prototype LA game.

I guess we'll just have to watch these to find out though. :)

Com Raven
04-25-2003, 09:22 AM
That is cause it wasn't intended to be a LA game, but was picked up later on :)

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. - May 2, 2003 - Following its rich tradition of intelligently crafted gameplay and wry humor, LucasArts announces Armed & Dangerous, a blast-happy action game about a smack-talking group of gun-toting rebels, a ridiculously impossible quest, and weapons that cause really, really big explosions. The game is being developed in conjunction with Planet Moon Studios and is expected to release winter 2003 for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and PC.

Based on a true story, players take on the role of Roman, a cockney criminal mastermind and leader of a gang of accidental heroes known as the Lionhearts. Armed to the hilt with an arsenal of outrageously powerful firearms, Roman and his crew of Robin Hood wannabes - Jonesy, Q1-11, and Rexus - set out to pull off the ultimate heist and are unwittingly drawn into a rebellion against a tyrant king. In the process the Lionhearts learn some treasures aren't worth stealing and some things are more valuable than gold.

Full press release here (http://www.lucasarts.com/products/armedanddangerous/press.htm).

And the official site (http://www.lucasarts.com/products/armedanddangerous/).

So this is the Planet Moon game. Well, Giants was one of the best games I've ever played, so this one sure is interesting.

Com Raven
05-02-2003, 09:29 PM
Wow, I completely forgot about the Planet moon game :)

What can I say, this is an instant hit with me...

Giants' humour was great, and the characters for this one sure look impressive :)

Jedi Apprentice
05-02-2003, 11:36 PM
Looks like a very interesting game and if Com gave it praise it must be worth a look. :D

From the screen it almost looks like a strategy game.

Is it? :p

I thought it said a trigger happy game which equals shooter to me. Maybe I am wrong again though........:p

Swat
05-03-2003, 02:30 AM
it has nice weapons including that rocket launcher with teeth! sure looks promising

Taos
05-03-2003, 02:41 AM
Has everyone seen the new Gold Guy animation for KOTOR yet? It's pretty good, but I think they could have done a better one.....one that gives the game more justice, but oh well. :D

I must say that I'm very impressed with the line-up LEC will be bringing to E3 this year...the only one that I'm not too excited about would be FT2.......but I do want to check out the rest of them. :)

Giants, the last game from Planet Moon also was very trigger happy, but it had a few strategic elemnts in some of itslevels :)

Totally agreed. That wasn't really that good. :(

But it'll have to do! :D

StormHammer
05-03-2003, 08:22 PM
Thanks for the heads-up on A&D. It looks very intriguing, and if it's from the same stable as Giants, then I'll be watching with interest to see how it pans out. :)

I hope it's as tongue-in-cheek as it sounds. :D

The graphics are quite smart too.

Hmm, can't agree with you there...

How do you want to do the game more justice in a few second flas animation that is required to have the Gold Guy in it?

I think the Knights one was one of the coolest so far...

Taos
05-04-2003, 05:33 PM
I agree with you there Com I did like it.....but I just thought they could do better. The one they did looks pretty generic IMHO......it could be applied to almost anything Star Wars.

What I think that would have been cool to see would be something similar to the Secret Weapons over Normandy - how they pulled back and gave a wide shot.......ok well, I wanted to see a wide shot that showed three gold guys working together in the kotor three-party system. Have one with a blaster, one with a single blade and one with a double bladed saber - in action would seriously kick butt! :D

Showing that right there would be more Kotor......again IMO. ;) ;P

Jedi Apprentice
05-04-2003, 05:51 PM
*watches Knights Gold Guy animation*

Wow, I really liked it. I do think Leemu's idea would've totally rocked, but it was still pretty cool.

I don't think it can beat the JA animation though. ;) :)

Com Raven
05-07-2003, 06:40 PM
I think it show pretty nicely that you can be honorable or nefarious...

Pad
05-07-2003, 09:58 PM
i think that would be great animation leemu and it shows kotor nicely as it would be ;)
but none the less i think those gold guy animations kick ass
:D

05-08-2003, 09:06 AM
I couldn't get the gold guy animations. The web site said they were on the bottom of the page....but they weren't. :(

edited to say "DUH" I found them!

I liked the Jedi Academy one the best. The Full Throttle one was teh suck

Jedi Apprentice

Wrath Unleashed.

LA has finally put up information about this game......

Here (http://www.lucasarts.com/products/wrath/)

It looks very interesting, but what's even more interesting is what the girl is wearing on the left side pic. :naughty:

:p

*writes another game to possibly get* :)

Com Raven
05-10-2003, 11:43 AM
That's what I toldy you guys, eyh ? :)

Taos
05-10-2003, 02:33 PM
I don't think anybody questioned you Com. ;P

It does look like an interesting game though. It's all about the demo. The Gold Guy animation for this one is pretty cool too. :)

Jed
05-10-2003, 03:06 PM
There's still 3 slots to be filled with pictures on that website...*anxiously awaits next 3 announcements*

I have to admit, that Gold Guy animation was one of the best yet. :D

Com Raven
05-11-2003, 10:34 AM
Well, two of those slots go to Rebel Strike, and Sam & Max 2...

The third? Who knows....

Monkey Island 5? A new Star Wars title? Maybe Battlegrounds 2?

Jedi Apprentice
05-11-2003, 01:15 PM
Might be a crazy thought, but I would love to see a Jedi Power Battle's 2.

If not Battlegrounds 2 would do fine. :D

I just hope it is a Star Wars game because they already have a ton of non-SW games coming.

Taos
05-11-2003, 06:41 PM
I've been hearing things about a new GB coming out.....so it very well could be that! :)

Jedi Apprentice
05-11-2003, 06:52 PM
Any linkage to your sources, Leemu? Or was it just high up hear say? Anyways I believe you.....;):p

I think a GB2 would be very cool. But I hope they would make a new engine for it and not just slap a layer of SW onto an existing engine. :)

I still want JPB2 though! Just think of the awesome combat system they could put into it!

*drools*

*waits for Lynk to say I hope you choke on your drool* :p

Jed
05-11-2003, 07:21 PM
GB is definitely a possibility.

It'll be nice to have another, and a sequel is inevitable, with Episode 3 coming out.

:)

Com Raven
05-12-2003, 09:42 AM
Yeah well, with E3 a mere 2 days away, they have to roll it out soon...

Sam and Max Freelance Police (http://www.lucasarts.com/products/freelancepolice/)

Another game announced. (not that I have any interest in this one):p

Only two more spots now! What do you think they'll be? :)

Jed
05-13-2003, 12:32 AM
There's Rebel Strike.

And the game that will knock your socks off.

I gotta stop using dramatic intros like that. :p

Heck yeah it will!

First person, third person, and flight combat. How can you beat that?

It makes me want to get a GameCube for crying out loud. (Now I am using dramatic phrases :D)

For the last one I am hoping for GB2. I would like to see Jedi Power Battles 2 above that though. Wishful thinking.....:)

Jed

Excellent. :dev11:

New E3 Game : Republic Commando (http://www.lucasarts.com/press/releases/74.html)

Quite frankly, this one is quite a surprise for me. I hadn't even heard anything of a rumor about it, and now it has been revealed. It looks pretty interesting, a bit of a Rainbow Six-kind of game. Mayhaps a bit what X-Com Alliance would've been. In any case, this is a game I'll watch out for.

Jedi Apprentice
05-13-2003, 07:57 PM
Oh, whoa.

Just saw this on LA.com.

This game looks awesome! Albeit a different type of game then what LA usually makes, but who wouldn't love being a clone trooper?

*goes to download trailer*

I guess this rules out GB2 now. I think this will be better though. :)

Dang Lucasarts....They're going to make me go broke! :D

Com Raven
05-13-2003, 08:25 PM
Wow, so far the by far biggest suprise for me from E3!

Rainbow Six meets Aliens meets Star Wars meets Unreal engine...

Definite blockbuster potential here!

Pad
05-13-2003, 08:27 PM
wow, we never saw that commin.

LucasArts today announced development is underway on Star Wars: Republic Commando (working title), a dark and intense first-person shooter for the Xbox™ video game system and PC. The game will utilize an enhanced version of the acclaimed Unreal engine technology.
now that can be quite promising

Expected for release summer 2004, Star Wars: Republic Commando will present a dramatic military-style action experience from the point-of-view of an elite squad member of a Republic Special Operations unit. Players will step into the role of a Commando performing precision operations deep behind enemy lines in this brutally realistic Star Wars combat experience.
sound good to me as we never had a game like that.

Heh. I couldn't have put it better myself. The trailer rocks...and they'd be hard-pressed not to make a good game on the Unreal tech.

I wonder if LEC actually read that thread that was started a few years ago...asking...nay, begging...for such a game as this. I've been waiting a long time for this...and now I'm pumped up beyond all recognition. :D

Rock on, LEC! Now give us the official site with some in-game screenies, and I'll be even more happy. :D

05-15-2003, 05:30 PM

Burrie

Indeed, I'm very impressed with Lucasart's line-up over the last few months... I must admit that I thought that they(LA) were in the gutter for a long time, but with all these recent games coming out, they are slowly coming back to the top.

Taos
05-26-2003, 12:15 AM
Ok, now that all of the trailers from LucasArts have been shown....which one is your favorite?
