Another game we will never get to play…
It has been recently revealed that we had yet another Star Wars game in the pipeline that will never get to see the light of day. This time the game is based around the butt-kicking Sith Darth Maul, developed by Red Fly (the dev of TMNT: Out of the Shadows). Code-named Damage the game was to feature Maul set after his resurfacing to the galaxy. The game-play was to be heavily based around the Batman Arkham games.
This is the seventh game to be announced that it was canceled in a year. As a gamer this unsettling. I always love playing any Star Wars game, even the bad ones (looking at you Republic Heroes). Now I (and I am sure a lot of other fans do to), just need a game that is a fun time. With the last-gen consoles we didn’t see a single online multiplayer Star Wars game and this is the Golden Age of online gaming. That is why I was looking forward to First Assault so much. All of this looked like a revival of Star Wars games after a decade long drought.
Seven games, while we know that at least one of this bunch would probably be a load of Bantha Poodoo it here was a good chance for a really nice game that would go down in gaming history’s annuals. If it wasn’t for Disney we would possibly be playing First Assault right now awaiting for 1313 and this Darth Maul game to come out for us to play. Why couldn’t LucasArts and Star Wars games have one last chance to shine before everything got canceled?
