LucasArts no more

LucasArts

Dum dum dum, another one bites the dust. In their infinite wisdom Disney decides to shut down LucasArts, there goes another game company.
“After evaluating our position in the games market, we’ve decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company’s risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games,” LucasArts parent company LucasFilm said in a statement. Yeah… rough translation: “Fuck making quality games, we’re going to whore out everything LucasArts ever made to anyone willing to pay for a license, like Electronic Arts.”

Pacific Rim trailer

Pacific Rim

We always thought alien life would come from the stars but it came from deep beneath the sea – a portal between dimensions in the Pacific Ocean. Something out there had discovered us. They counted on the humans to hide, to give up, to fail.

Pacific Rim, already THE movie I’m looking forward most to this year.
Giant aliens + battle suits + giant mechas + Guillermo del Toro, can’t lose.

Download in progress… Civilization IV: Colonization

Colonization downloading on Steam

I’m only familiar with this version from back in ye olde Amiga days, I know it’s a remake in the Civ IV game but I still hope (against better judgement perhaps) that it’ll play like the classic. Which reminds me, still haven’t tried Freecol.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
