Famicom Dojo Podcast: LucasArts and Crafts

George Lucas recently sold all of LucasFilm to Disnet for $4 billion.
Not only does that mean there will be a new Star Wars movie in 2015, but all of
LucasFilm’s ancillary businesses came with the deal: the graphic effects powerhouse
Industrial Light and Magic, used by almost every major motion picture studio for
photorealistic effects; Skywalker Sound, which does for audio was ILM does for video;
and the once-mighty Graphic Adventure game shop LucasArts.

Sean and Vinnk reminisce about their favorite LucasArts games from their childhood —
such as Loom, Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle, the Indiana Jones Graphic Adventures,
and more — trace through its more recent games to see what the studio has become,
and speculate what will become of its talented game designers once faced with Disney’s
own powerful video game publisher, Disney Interactive.

Sean and Vinnk wonder if game rental is a good way to distinguish between what is a video game console and what is just a computer. Or maybe there’s no distinction? Which consoles are really PCs in disguise… or vice versa? Maybe there just aren’t any answers, but at Famicom Dojo we’ll definitely try to find them! Also, more listener voicemails!
