The last Indy project that went through development hell turned out to be garbage (KotCS).

Except for the gameplay trailer released in 06, really no news has been released concerning this game. Thats why I'm optimistic...Force Unleashed is out, and the development team is familiar with that program now. I expect that to be advantageous to Staff of King's development, as well as the fact that its now Lucasarts main focus. Despite the lay-offs at LA and extreme delay in this game's release, I think we're in for something special with Staff of Kings. We've waited 3 years for this game (and will be waiting awhile longer), but I don't see the logic in predicting doom for the game when we now know that its their main focus. Especially with the glut of associated Indy merchandise planned for early next year to coincide with the release of this game.

Will it come out on time? Probably not.

Will it come out at all? Probably.

Will it be any good when (and if) it does come out? I think so.

Have to agree with Dewy. I like the title, and think it fits the generally corny approach to Indy adventure titles.

Say "Temple of Doom" in your head and tell me that doesn't sound corny.

After playing Force Unleashed, I feel confortable that Lucasarts will get this right. The story and gameplay are awesome in Unleashed, and that engine will work very well in Staff of Kings.

Not yet. It'll come out eventually.


Geez, I feel like me before CS came out talking about this game.

I am soooo there. I bought a wii for the ole lady, but there are no other next gen consoles in our home...yet. With this and the price drop on the 360 I'm all out of excuses.

If purchasing an xbox 360 needed a reason...it must be Indiana Jones.

So from this....

Paying tribute to some of the most memorable scenes ever plastered on the silver screen, you'll be in pursuit of the motorcade in Raiders of the Lost Ark, at the helm of the winding mine-cart from The Temple of Doom and embroiled in the free-for-all aboard the tank in The Lost Crusade.

...and this...

Embark upon thrilling chase sequences popularized in scenes from the legendary Indiana Jones trilogy

...I gather that you get to play the chase scenes from the trilogy as an extra bonus feature of the game. Correct?


Alos this is a PS3 game as well right?

I assume so, since the summary concretely places the game in 1939 despite the production photos of him looking at the Golden Gate bridge being constructed which in the real world was finished in early 1937...either they screwed up the timeline or they cut those scenes, etc.

I hope the classic chase scenes thing is just extra content instead of the story re-hashing existing story material from the movies. But I won't mind much either way...can't wait for this game.

And yes, I'm pretty sure this will also be out for the PS3.

AWESOME!!! I'm still not sure this game will be out by March 1st.

What I don't understand is if this is an original story by George Lucas, why does it say that you'll be doing the exact same chase sequences? I think that is a typo actually since the LucasArts webiste used to say that the chase scenes will be similair to those three chase scenes. Just a typo I'm sure. Can't wait to hear more about this game and I love the fact that it looks like the artifact is of "biblical proportions". Back to old style Indy is what we need.

AWESOME!!!

I doubt it too. Probably more likely late summer or early fall, 2009.

That could be. I think its possible it'll be a bonus feature/content...again, we'll have to wait and see.

Hey now, Indy's big enough for LEGO and realistic games.

It wouldn't make sense for it to be a recap of the films and call it "Staff of Kings".

So it looks like I might've been right with my assumption the Indy Staff of Kings game probably won't be out until Fall 2009. I emailed Rob MacGregor (Indy novelist extraordinaire) about his upcoming Indy novel, and he confirmed it was indeed based on the game (even sharing the same title). He also confirmed the novel was completed awhile back, intended to be released around the time Crystal Skull hit theaters, but was delayed until Fall 2009 to coincide with the game's release. Anyway, if any are interested, the relevant info can be found here.

Does LucasFilm or LucasArts do anything anymore that isn't heavily delayed?

Good point.

My other question is when was the last time LucasFilm/LucasArts released anything that wasn't a monumental dissapointment? Empire Strikes back?

And what about the X-Wing series, Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, Monkey Island, Fate of Atlantis, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango? There was a time when the lucasarts symbol was a guarantee of quality, Games you'd never heard of, if it was made by Lucasarts, Guaranteed excellence.

No of course not. I wasn't thinking.

So...has LucasFilm/LucasArts done anything good since 1989? Maybe Dark Forces was okay. Emperors Tomb was too me, disappointing.
