TFN has the scoop on 1313, the new Star Wars game from LucasArts. News about it has traveled very fast, from speculations about what form of media it would turn out to be to the clips revealed in the last few hours. The clips, played on Spike TV, reveal two (white, male, human) protagonists and some snappy dialogue. I'm obviously less happy about the first than the second.
The game is also M-rated, which makes me wonder what sort of taboos are going to be broken in the normally PG Star Wars universe. The EU has been creeping in a more violent direction since Revenge of the Sith's PG-13 and then the Zombies in Space I mean Red Harvest series, but 1313's setting in the underworld of Corscuant makes other kinds of vice just as possible.
I'm reserving judgement on this one. It's either going to be forgettable, a decent action game, or the next Knights of the Old Republic. Since there don't seem to be a sign of any female characters yet there isn't much else for me to talk about besides the fact that the clunky, numeric title isn't my cup of blue milk.
