Xbox Live Arcade shooter revealed in new screenshots

I'd definitely murder some people to make this happen, and then eat their siblings! And poo on their lawns! With hookers.

Of course in the real world an angry facebook message will suffice, I'll have to page them, I don't use facebook. Seriously though, I like the sound of a SW shooter that is battlefieldy, but fps is a bit tiresome, would be a shame to ditch the Third person aspect if this was to be a 'predecessor'. Hope disney don't go all stupid with it.

I don't have any constipated hookers, quite the opposite really. But even so, ok - and by ok I mean yes I'll let disney know the disdain from disinclining to acquiesce my request. Dishonorable. Dis-nay. Dis-horse sounds.

Screw you Disney. Killing one of the best video game franchises is a huge mistake.

I remember the good old days when Star Wars games were actually released. Those were good times.

:evil: damn it, the Battlefront series is exactly what is needed to save Star Wars games - the demand is undeniable.
They're shooting themselves in the foot

Alas, the Jedi are conspicuous by their absence

I actually don't mind this, I never liked them in BFT2 much, the melee combat felt out of place and they could win the game single handidly

sadly good old days actually refers to the old in this case, when things like the Battlefront and Rogue Squadron series were out, and new and inventive things were being done with the franchise like Republic Commando and the RTS games (forget the name of that series)

Heck the best Star Wars games of late have been the Lego series :roll:

Xbox 1 had BF 1 + 2, KotoR 1 + 2, Republic Commando, lego star wars... what have we had since that has been even remotely good?

Wasn't there a star wars pinball add on for something that was supposedly good? It's on the dashboard somewhere.

"Fans should tell Disney/Lucas loud and clear they don't want shitty titles from random developers"


No damn it, we want shitty titles from LucasArts!!! Or was that not the point you were trying to make? :lol:

Why does a blaster rifle(?), have an ACOG sight? Doesn't seem really Star Warsy.

As much as I'd like a new Knights of the old Republic (the mmo doesn't count), Battlefront, Republic Commando and Bounty Hunter, I can't see us getting one anytime soon.

Even the fate of 1313 seems a little shakey at this point.

I thought in the films they had a scopey thing on top, a small one. Didn't they?
