News Comments > Respawn Developing a Star Wars Game
15. Re: Respawn Developing a Star Wars Game May 5, 2016, 03:59 Kxmode
 
Calling it today: Star Wars 1313. EA got all the assets for this project from LucasArts and saw that there was potential. Star Wars meets Gears of Wars perhaps. Something more gritty in the Star Wars universe. Who knows how far they got but if the E3 preview videos were any indicator it looks like they got passed the brainstorm phase, the concept phase, engine dev phase, and was in production phase. That's a lot to stuff to work with. Plus Respawn used to work on Call of Duty so working on 1313 is something they could easily transition into.

So mark today, May 5, 2016: Respawn is working on reviving Star Wars 1313.

I think games like Batman Arkham Knight are the ones that will see the most benefit. BAK's Recent versus Overall reviews show completely different pictures. This will definitely help people see if the newer game is worth purchasing. Overall a great move from Valve and a win-win for gamers and publishers.

First, free trial. Then, free to play (pay to win). Then, servers are shutdown.

Recent changes to the DMCA by the LOC gives people the legal ability to create tools in order to keep playing multiplayer games after the official servers shutdown. EA has no choice but to keep their servers running indefinitely.

Well you know, except for that giant loophole that was provided where if there was any copyrightable content kept on a server and then fed to the client (which could easily be stretched to mean music, art assets) - there's no exemption provided.

The EFF and other organizations are actively working to add defunct MMOs in that list.

There's no such thing as free trial. This is basically EA's attempt to get people into their multiplayer F2P so they can use the cash sucker shop.

He still didn't like TFA but at least he understood why it happened.

It was pure marketing bunk, what more is there to understand? They lifted the old movie to appeal to old audiences, introduced puerile, vapid new characters to appeal to new audiences, and did it all with endless teases and winks instead of actually progressing the lore. The icing on the cake was the most phoned-in scoring the great John Williams has ever done.

I'm not going to get into this on a Friday evening. Thumbsup

Ask Creston. We tried having an intervention once.... he tried to nuke us from orbit.

As for Everything Wrong with Star Wars.... they nailed it and that's why I hate the movie so much (Except BB-8 which is the cutest droid in the universe... now).

I think it's amazing to have two Star Wars fans, yet one hates TFA and the other loves it. I personally think it's the 2nd best Star Wars film, right behind Empire. I'm never going to forgot how I felt when I saw Han die and he fell off that bridge. And while I understand the story is a remix of the original trilogy I understand and accept why they did it. I was even able to convince a coworker to why it worked. He still didn't like TFA but at least he understood why it happened.

@KXMode

That's ancient history. More recent events suggest a sociopathic control freak.

How would that be relevant to bringing vanilla servers back?

Isn't Mark Kern the guy that created the Firefall debacle?

I don't know all the specifics. I'm not sure if he caused or contributed to it, but in truth that's a topic for another discussion. Right now this is huge milestone.

Not many people know this but after the lead programmer left to form Arena.net (possibly Mike O'Brien) Blizzard was ready to cancel WOW. They saw no path forever. However, Mark Kern stepped up and said let me find a new lead programmer and get the game ready to ship. Blizzard took a chance on Mark and his leadership led to one of gaming's most successful MMOs in history. Imagine a gaming world where WOW didn't exist.

Anyhow, here's the Tweets for proof:

vomiting_cat: Look at Oldschool Runescape's success. Look at Nostalrius and now Kronos/Lordaeron. Sometimes feels like, you're wrong?
Mark: Blizzard was pretty sure WoW should be cancelled to, until I convinced them to try.
https://twitter.com/Grummz/status/723670297405054978

Mark: They all seem to forget I saved WoW from cancellation and got it shipped in the first place.
https://twitter.com/Grummz/status/723552778308608000

Khayotix: tell us the story Mark! What happened that the game needed saving? History lesson time!
Mark: The game was in shambles, the lead left to start Arena. net. Blizzard said, no way to continue
https://twitter.com/Grummz/status/723553532465418240

Mark: I said I would join the team, find a new lead prog and help turn the game around. They let me try.

I know! I'm such a hypocrite!

Seriously though, Battletech was the last crowdfunded game I backed. Everspace, just before Battletech. I'm still not supporting the crowdfunding / early access model. I think it's a flawed system, but at least I'm happy to check out Everspace.

You should avoid the Star Citizen threads.

I might have something to do with that according to some.

Posting about it ten thousand times and trying to spam your views everywhere is what makes you a crazy ex. Talking like a crazy person about Blizzards egos and making up conspiracy theories about a video game patch revision is what makes you a crazy ex. My points about why vanilla WoW servers are still unaddressed which in vanilla WoW terms that you should understand is a FAIL.

Again, I haven't addressed any of your illogical points because you have none. Anything else?
