Star Wars 1313 – The wait begins now

June 13th, 2012 | Posted by Emmett in Games & Gaming | Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Despite that my first two posts related to something other than trying to put this site together both revolve around a game trailer, I don't like watching trailers. For me, they tend to reveal too much and take away from the story and experience that the final product provides, whether that product is a game, movie, or whatever. My usual responses when confronted with these things will be to try to hastily close the corresponding tab or browser window while shutting my eyes or running out of the room while covering my ears and yelling, "La la la la la..." I recommend keeping your eyes at least partially open when employing that last tactic. Despite my isolationist tendencies, the mention of a trailer for a new Star Wars game brought me running back to civilization, and now I am excited. Unfortunately, when caused by a game that doesn't even have a release date attached to it, these moments of excitement are soon tainted by a subtle, gnawing fear. It's an unconscious reaction caused by painful experience. Those of you who have been gaming for a while know the kinds of things I'm talking about. Even so, it's hard for me to contain my enthusiasm, especially since the E3 demos were all done on PCs. I've seen the term "PC exclusive" tossed around a few forums, but I haven't seen anything that officially substantiates that claim. The practice wouldn't make a whole lot of sense for a franchise as big as Star Wars anyway; why skip out on the console markets? I'm guessing they'll develop for the other platforms, but the demoed platform gives me - a proud PC games - hope; hope that the game will actually be released for PC, and maybe (just maybe), development for the PC will be given priority. I realize that last part is a bit of a long shot, but it is a hope after all.
