The Star Wars 1313 Trailer Is Every Trailer Ever

By Craig Pearson on August 14th, 2012.

BRAAAANGGGG!
It has jump zooms, the Inception noise, a squeaky pulsing noise to denote horror and excitement, then an uncomfortably long sequence where nothing is on screen. Welcome to the trailer to end all trailers, a new look at the gritty shooter Star Wars 1313 that just strutted out of Trailer University waving a degree over its head. It’s keen to show you all the trailery tricks it learned in as short a space of time as possible. All it’s really missing is a voice over from That Guy and it’d be complete.

A Galaxy Far Cry Away: Hocking Exits Lucasarts

By Alec Meer on July 2nd, 2012.

I'm not even trying with that headline pun I know, but the house is out of coffee so I'm barely conscious right now

While he’s most known for the rightfully divisive Far Cry 2 (me, I’m glad it exists but never, ever want to play it again), Clint Hocking is a fascinating games-brain whose trajectory is well worth following.

Star Wars 1313 Footage Shows Fancy Shootin’

By Jim Rossignol on June 6th, 2012.

Oh no, he's got a raygun!
With a strong whiff of Shadows Of The Empire, new third-person shooter Star Wars 1313 (contentless Flash placeholder site) has been unveiled at E3 running on a “high end” PC. You can see SpikeTV’s footage of that, as well as a man-chat free cinematic trailer, below. It looks rather fancy, too, although it amused me that the developer said that their intention was to make the cutscenes so seamless with the action that “you’re not sure when you’re controlling, and when you’re not”. Anyway, it’s looking lovely, and manages to hit the grimy end of the Star Wars action spectrum rather confidently. Go take a look.
