LucasFilm Games & LEGO Advent Calendars - Hello There! Ep III
Anthony (@anthonypalm) and Jeff (@MrBrawl96) are back to talk more LEGOs and the news that LucasFilm Games will be taking the Star Wars license under one roof. Yep, this means EA's stranglehold over the Star Wars videogame license is soon to end and other developers are free to make games in our galaxy far, far away. We talk what the newly announced open world story driven game by Massive Entertainment could be and what developers we would love to see tackle a Star Wars game. Hoping to have Nate back soon (@sycstix) as he recovers from illness, speedy recovery bud, we love ya!
