I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened..

whelp, that's what happens when you sell your business to Disney unfortunately...
Nick2Shy

..sadly yeah.. I dunno what Lucas was thinking, it couldn't be just for the money. I mean, Star Wars, LucasFilm, LucasArts, ILM, that's his life time achievement, what on earth was he thinking Dx

an he donated like almost all 4 bill he got for star wars too... perhaps he snapped?
Nick2Shy

it just saddens me to see what is happening to my most favorite franchise of all time

yeah... but Disney? Really? I mean, l have made peace with the thought that Disney owns Star Wars now but to close LucasArts, that makes me mad
Shokuji

IMO, it's just his selfish way of saying that it was all him.

He wouldn't want them to continue creating stuff w/o him and show the world how little he actually contributed.


Edit: Oh, Disney closed it down? o.o
Nick2Shy
5 years, 8 months ago
yeah, Lucas wouldn't have closed it, I don't think so. It's Disney Dx
Shokuji

Makes me wonder if there was just a bunch of incumbent, overpaid people in there and it was just easier to close the whole company down than try to let certain people go. I'm sure the ones they wanted to keep have been re-offered jobs at Disney or something.
Nick2Shy
5 years, 8 months ago
no, it's just easier and cheaper to fire all people there and only use the license of LucasArts in the future, letting other developers do the work and only get the profit. Disney did this JUST for the money as it is to be expected by them. They don't care for the costumers and fans as they don't care for the workers who are unemployed now because of Disneys greed
Shokuji

Well they did work for L.A. I'm sure they'll find something. But yeah, are you really surprised that big corporations are first interested in money? They have a legal obligation to make money for shareholders. The best companies are not publicly traded because they only have themselves to answer to. So blame greed in general, I'd say.
Nick2Shy
5 years, 8 months ago
I do. Bu anyway, there've always been things, franchises, organisations, "worlds", that stayed at least untouched in their cores. But I don't think that a company like Disney care at all for something like that
And only because I have accepted that Star Wars was sold to Disney, that doesn't mean I have to understand that. I wish I knew what was going on in Lucas' head

^ this kinda hits home. I use to be a lead game tester but Bandai/namco corp bought our parent company and closed the phoenix offices. offered us lower paying positions if we moved to San Francisco [lower pay, higher cost of living area, we calculated it out an we wouldnt be able to survive unless we had like 7 pepole in a 2 room apartment], which was a load of hypocritical nonsense since the dude that offered us the jobs JUST gave us this huge speech about how he never took a step back and that's what we need to shoot for...

Oddly enough, the animation was apparently supposed to be pretty good overall. =)
Nick2Shy
5 years, 8 months ago
well, I watched some episodes but.. I dunno, the quality was not as it could have been and.. I can't explain it, it somehow felt.. not right to me *shrugs* :/
Shokuji

It's not for everyone, I guess. Though it's been going for several seasons now, hasn't it? I suppose that accounts for something.

It was much better than the Prequels! Really excellent show.

[nods] I think most people were put off by the animation style.

true that...vor allem relativ überraschend...die haben doch eigendlich noch ganz gut umsätze gemacht. das dürfte wohl bedeuten dass die nächsten SW games alle scheisse werden, weil von externen entwicklern produziert......
Nick2Shy
5 years, 8 months ago
leider gut möglich. dabei sah 1313 so vielversprechend aus... hoffentlich wird das nich wirklich eingestampft, medienberichte sind da widersprüchlich
aber generell kann es in der tat sein dass SW games in zukunft schrott sind. viele, die meisten, spiele mit disney-beteiligung sind ja doch eher meh -_-
Locutus
5 years, 8 months ago
ich glaub 1313 wird von LA zumindest noch weiter mitentwickelt, auch wenn es an ein anderes studio abgegeben wird. zumindest hoffe ich dass das stimmt...wobei sowas selten gut geht....siehe Alien: Colonial Marine...totale katastrophe, nachdem sie arbeit an andere studios ausgelagert haben....

...mal sehn was die zukunft bringt...
Teko

Not too surprising sadly... LucasArts did great things in their prime and I'm sad to see them go, but they really squandered what they had & had stopped being a productive, innovative studio years ago. I think Disney's doing the right thing by letting better-run studios make Star Wars / Indiana Jones games instead. Just sad to see the folks out of work, though I know some folks who used to work there and they've been losing people steadily for years.
