I'm very much interested if you can get someone from LucasArts on a future LucasCast to see if they'll open up on the subject.
Oh yeah, I choose to blame that little bit of information on Jeff But either way, what LA has been up to in recent years has been hard to understand... and we really do need someone from LA to try to explain to us what it is they're trying to do...

RE: cancellation of PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of SoK - anybody questioning the continued viability of the Ronin engine (combined DMM, euphoria, and Havok technologies) that LucasArts built and first used on TFU and that was also supposed to be used on the same platforms for SoK? Perchance last June LucasArts cut loose too many of the devs that worked on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of TFU to make SoK happen on those platforms now but seriously, does anybody think we're going to see another LucasArts game that uses this engine? Looks to me like it could very well be one and done with TFU.
I'm thinking other game developers may end up using their technology at some point in the future... as for LucasArts themselves, as stated above... who knows what they're thinking at the moment.

Really enjoyed the inaugural LucasCast and hearing everybody's voices. Lynky's accent is the best by far.
It's great hearing all of this positive feedback... but it's a little hard to understand how people are picking out my accent from the rest. I thought leXX's accent would be the one everyone would comment about.

They say they speak English though in truth, they don't...
HEY, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... watch it there buddy. I'm Australian.

And yeah, without Groov, none of this would've happened in the first place.
