LA Announces New Non-SW Game

LucasArts has just announced another E3 game.

Secret Weapons Over 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 ). Just my opinion though.....

What do you all think about this game?

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.

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.

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.

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.......

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.



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

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!

Ah threads merged.

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.

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

I knew the merge would come....

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

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.

Armed and Dangerous - New LEC game



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.

And the official site.

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.

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

Looks like a very interesting game and if Com gave it praise it must be worth a look.

From the screen it almost looks like a strategy game.

Is it?

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

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.

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!

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.

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...

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!

Showing that right there would be more Kotor......again IMO.

*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.
