DO NOT HIT F5. As in, don’t refresh this page. We’re about 5 mins away from starting and the blog will run on it’s own. So for the sake of clarity, we repeat: DO NOT HIT F5. Thanks.

We’re coming to you LIVE from San Francisco! LucasArts is hosting a huge press conference here today, scheduled to start at 2.00pm PST. That’s 10.00pm BST or 11.00pm CET, if you’re on the mainland.

As the conference starts the embargo will lift on a press release announcement and visual assets, so watch the front page for those.

We’ll be bringing you all the news from the event itself as it happens. After the break.

  • Ok. LucasArts is giving us a tour of the studio at the moment so we’re running about 15 mins late, so bear with us.

      “He’s just official announced the MMO. He’s saying BioWare was the natural choice to take on the project.”

      Fuckfuckfuck FUCK OFF! Goddammit I just wanted KotOR 3 not some shitty MMO with the KotOR name shamelessly attached to it.

      And that’s some nerve, making such a big deal out of JUST ANOTHER MMO

      Worst news this week yet. Bah :(

      Hmm. It WASN’T a new Wii peripheral? I’m shocked. Shocked I tell you.

      There’s only one thing for it.

      I really, really hate MMOs. Still, nice for those who are into them I suppose.

      Well, at least they got a nice (free?) vacation to San Francisco out of this whole embarrassing mess. :)

      The “you can play it as a single player game, honest” thing? Yeah…

      That aside, it looks like it’s coming out for the original xbox, which is cool:
