Star Wars 1313 Discussion

I thought "Oh crap another shitty Star Wars game", but when I heard that it was going to be mature I changed my tune.

Looks pretty interesting. Seeing tie fighters makes me even more interested, meaning it's set in the more interesting era of Star Wars.

 

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

Star Wars 1313 AKA thing to gauge fan interest in mature underworld setting for long rumored live action tv series

Based on that one photo, I'm interested (even though I haven't played a new SW game in over 5 years).

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

Colour me uninterested. I'm pretty much an SNES-and-N64 guy only, so this means nothing for me.

That's a whole lot of hole.

I wonder if Wookieepediaphiles will be linking this to this?

They have been but the devs have stated that the number is in reference to the 1313th level of Coruscant. Also since apparently this is set around the OT era, no young Boba. Add to that the Gametrailers preview at the Presidio which showed a young man doing mocap and his likeness captured in the game it's pretty safe to say that this will be a new character.

Here's the official description so far:

"Named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant, the game puts players in control of a deadly bounty hunter as he uses an arsenal of exotic weaponry to hunt down his marks and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. Star Wars 1313 emphasizes epic set pieces and fast-paced combat with a hero who uses human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers, to make his way through this dangerous world."

I just realized something. This might be where those time travel rumors originated from. I really hope those were just baseless speculation. =/

I approve.

I think something like this is long overdue. Dark Forces and Shadows of the Empire are two of my all time favorite games, and mostly because they put me in the SW universe, but not as one of the main characters and not as some Jedi. I've always felt that the SW universe was this massive place we got to see so little of, and the majority of the people living in this world don't use the force.

Of course, Dark Forces and Shadows of the Empire were both really good games for their time, I have my doubts LucasArts is even capable of producing a quality title anymore, I am fully expecting a typical generic 3rd person affair that fails to do anything substantial or ground breaking or even be on par with its competing titles. The Force Unleashed was absolute crap and is probably the best they've made in several years. They know with SW titles they don't have to try to make an amazing groundbreaking product, with the SW label on it, it is going to sell regardless.

I'd truly love a fun SW game set in the classic SW universe. I am not going to get excited about this or follow its production (because LA simply hasn't shown themselves to be a developer worthy of getting excited about), but if it comes out and gets above average reviews, I might just go out and drop some money on a silly Star Wars game for the first time since... Jedi Knight II... wow, can't believe it has been that long (or as I like to call it, Star Wars: Dark Forces III: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast).

I'm the exact same way. Jedi are cool and all, but the smugglers make for more fun.

CP3S, I can't help but notice you completely left out Republic Commando. That was a good one.

My favorite SW game is still TIE FIGHTER from the 90s.  It made you feel like you were in a Star Wars movie.

Does anybody know if you could run it on Vista or Windows 7, or Mac OS in a simulator?  I still have XP but will probably upgrade in the future.

Agreed, even though it was PT crap the game was very enjoyable, better than Jedi Outcast (which wasn't THAT great in the end).

But does "mature" mean "rated M for mature", or does it just mean "not a Lego game"?

Because I can't anything Star Wars related fitting with an M rating.

If that was the case it would be rated TEEN. I do wonder what kind of violence it contains to warrant the M rating.

I gotta say, that's pretty great looking.

Of course, the really important question...

Will there be wipes between scenes?
