Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

This is sooooo 80’s! Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is set to be released in May for PS3, X360 and PC as an whole game, as you don’t need the original Far Cry 3 to play it.

The awesome sound track is by Powerglove and it’s an entire trip to the 80’s electronica. You can listen to it here 🙂

Farewell LucasArts

This beatifull sunset is only present in the original EGA version of Monkey Island.
Trivia: This beautiful sunset is only present in the original EGA version of Monkey Island.

It’s a sad day for us gamers in their 30’s and 40’s.

Today Disney announced that it’s closing LucasArts. The famous game studio that was part of LucasFilm, and included in the package that George Lucas sold to Disney, is being closed down after 31 years. I’m 34. I grew up with LucasFilm Games (that was the original name back then), the good old Maniac Mansion, Loom, Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and so many others. All of them made me a very happy kid. If I exceled at english in my teen years, I owe it all to these titles. Brillian graphic adventures, games unmatched even today…

In the past 10 years, LucasArts has been only a medium to release Star Wars games, straying very far from its roots. In this economy and with the lack of good titles, it was only a matter of “when”.

Farewell LucasFilm Games. I’m off to play some Secret of Monkey Island, hopping one day I might play Monkey Island 3, delivered directly from the hands of the creator.
