    Lightbulb Star Wars: 1313, a 'Darker, Grittier' Star Wars Game [Slashdot]



    MojoKid writes "When it comes to Star Wars, the gaming industry has a long history of cranking out titles of uncertain quality. For every brilliant title like Knights of the Old Republic, we've seen several clunkers and a few outright failures like Republic Heroes. LucasArts demonstrated a new Star Wars game at E3 this week, Star Wars: 1313 and despite the brand's uneven history, folks are cautiously optimistic. The 1313 moniker refers to a specific level of Coruscant which is a haven for criminals, bounty hunters, and crime lords. You take on the role of a bounty hunter looking for information on an unspecified criminal conspiracy who descends to 1313 in search of data. This will likely be the first Star Wars game to be rated 'M' for mature, and it focuses on the seedy underbelly of the universe."

    This game is essentially the same concept Lucas wanted to do with the live action TV show. Still think they should just continue the Dark Forces or X-Wing franchises.

    I feel like I'm in the minority here, but I think there's too much Star Wars media as it is. We don't really need more of it.

    I just watched the trailer for this last night. The graphics look very advanced but the gameplay and story elements I've seen so far haven't exactly captivated me. I need to see more. On the plus side, them making this an "M" rated game certainly gives them much more freedom to work with but it remains to be seen rather they can pull it off or not.

    It's hard for me to not be biased. I think it'll be good. I like the story concept and the gameplay, from what we've briefly seen, reminds me of Uncharted, which I love.

    Tired of Star Wars. Tired of gritty. Tired of Realism. Why more interested in games (besides JRPG's) Darksiders,Rayman Legends(loved Origins) Games with imagination and style is more of what I want to see in retail.



    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but the Star Wars fanbase is probably one of the largest in the world compared to anything else. Even more than Star Trek fans. I'm a huge Star Wars nerd and this game looks amazing. I'm very excited to get my hands on this. As long as fans still exist, and new ones pop up, Star Wars ANYTHING..will always sell.
