Disney, which acquired Lucasfilm and LucasArts last year in a $4.05 billion deal, has shut down the legendary LucasArts division. "After evaluating our position in the games market, we've decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company's risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games," Disney informed Game Informer in a statement. "As a result of this change, we've had layoffs across the organization. We are incredibly appreciative and proud of the talented teams who have been developing our new titles." Although a Star Wars game factory in recent years, the publisher will be remembered for its work defining the adventure genre from the '80s to the '90s, on such titles as Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island, Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle. The soul of those games and that era moved on from the company after the departure of Ron Gilbert and Double Fine's Tim Schafer. The most recent project we are aware of by LucasArts is Star Wars 1313, but rumors have circulated for months about that project's ceased development. There's also the unclear fate of Star Wars: First Assault. As for Disney, after shutting down the last of its core developers, the company is all-in on Disney Infinity and mobile games.

Pit slowly worked his eyes open. He found himself in a strange gorge. It was completely grey, foggy, and rocky. He couldn't remember what had happened. All he remembered was that he was flying through Skyworld. Palutena was acting a little strange, because she was vowing vengeance against the humans. Something Pit never believed Palutena would do and he wouldn't have it. He flew as fast and forcefully as he could to break through the forcefield, and in what seemed like a split second, Pit saw black. "Where am I?" Pit asked. He darted toward the edge to see a gargantuous, purple dragon-like creature. "What the heck is that thing?" Pit asked himself. Then, he saw a buff man with red hair, a brown headband, and an orange plate of armor, who was in fierce combat with the beast. "Lady Palutena? Viridi? Hades?" Pit called out. No answer. No advice from Palutena, no nagging from Viridi, no torment from Hades. Pit was getting a bit lonely. "Answer me! Someone! Please say something!" Pit wailed. "I don't care who I end up talking to...I just want to be able to speak to someone. Heck, I don't even care if it's Hades laughing at me again. Wow...never thought I'd start to miss that." During the battle with the purple being, the man was eaten alive. The crowd gasped. Philoctetes was devastated. He's lost another warrior-in- training. Hades on the other hand was ecstatic. Now nothing would stand in his way of finally taking control of Olympus, and the universe. "That man's in trouble!!" cried Pit as he flew down to action. Pit split his bow into two semi-daggers and cut through the Hydra's head. The crowd started mumbling loudly. "Great, Pit." he mumbled to himself. "Might as well have just rescued a digested appetizer." Lo, and behold, Hercules staggered out of the Hydra's slit neck. "WHAT??" Hades cried out in great anger, his pale blue skin becoming a furious red, the blue flames on his scalp changing the same color and roaring like a hungry lion. "That puny, winged rat!! Is he another one of Daddy's little boys?" Hercules couldn't believe it himself, but his emotions were mutual with Hades. He wasn't yelling like Hades, but he grabbed Pit by the collar, slammed him into the rocky walls and gave him a very stern look. "That thing was mine." Hercules hissed. "I guess you must be grateful for me saving your skin from being devoured like a chicken dinner." Pit retorted. Herc's grimace got angrier as his grip on Pit's neck strengthened. Pit kicked Herc in the groin. He went down to his knees as Pit broke free. "Oh! Sorry....I was....aiming for the gut." chuckled Pit. He really was telling the truth, but Herc was even angrier than before. "Yeah! YEAH! Get 'em, Herc!" cried Hades. "Show angelboy who's boss!" Pit took a look at him. He looked different than the Hades he knew. He wasn't cracking jokes, or talking in a British accent, or rambling on about how souls taste like bacon. Also, his skin looked a pale blue color. "Wow, Hades." Pit said. "You don't look too good. Sore throat? The flu? Maybe you should get some --" Pit felt Herc's fist against his jaw, which felt like a speeding cannonball. Pit flew into the wall swiftly like a shooting star, and the impact was so great, the rocky wall of the gorge crumbled up. The Hydra had just grown two more heads and felt like a million bucks, but it was short-lived. He was crushed and buried in the avalanche of rocks that toppled on top of him. After lifting a big rock off himself, Pit ran at Hercules, firing arrows as he went. Herc knocked the arrows away, but one got him in the chest. It was powerful enough to push him backward, but he removed it from his chest and resumed charging. Pit put his bow into melÃ©e mode and the battle commenced. Hades sat back on his throne and was snacking on a basket of popcorn. "And the benches...are....emptied." Who will win in this Olympic fight to the finish?
In another multi-verseâ€¦ 11/02/12 The Beast was scarfing down some roast beef. Centuries later and still, the Beast had not broken the spell. It was more savage and uncivilized than it had been centuries ago, as well as more depressed. He had lived as an immortal Beast for over 600 years, but all those 600 years, he had the same nightmareâ€¦one that no matter how powerful he was, he never had the strength to shake awayâ€¦ ** â€œGET OUT!!!â€ The Beast bellowed at the beautiful brunette woman for intruding in the West Wing. â€œWhere are you going?â€ asked Lumiere. â€œAnywhereâ€™s better than here!â€ cried Belle. Belle had had enough. Despite these unusual servants who had told her again and again, â€œHeâ€™s not a bad guyâ€, it was, without a shadow of a doubt, too hard for her to believe. Belle rode on her steed as fast as she could through the cold winds of the world outside of the Beastâ€™s gargantuous castle. Finally, she fell off. When the Beast arrived, he saw some wolves walking off, their heads turned away from him. He saw two things that completely shocked him. He saw a horse with gaping, yet empty eyes, and some huge tears in his stomach, where he could see that some flesh had been torn out of him. But the second thing he saw was worst of all. It was Belle. Her limbs had been torn apart and dark red blood was stained at her mouth. Her eyes, once beautiful, were now pale and lifeless. Her clothes torn almost completely apart. The Beast loudly roared in shock at the sight of the woman as his last hope that had been stripped from him by this cold pack of wolves. * * The Beast was savoring his large dinner. But it wouldnâ€™t last long. Dr. Bruce Banner walked into this ancient castle on this freezing cold night. He was relieved to have finally found some shelter, still living his days with â€œthat monsterâ€ inside him. And not having a shirt to wear didn't make things any easier for him He walked upstairs and found himself a very soft bedroom. Desperate for some rest, he rolled into the bed and immediately, his eyes got heavier, and heavier, until he had fallen asleep. But then he woke up with a start. The door burst open and the Beast roared at him loudly. â€œWhy did you come here?â€ asked the Beast. Bruce rolled out of the bed and backed away. â€œWhat the hell are you? Get away from me!â€ cried Bruce as he ran out the hole where the door had been. Bruce ran hastily down the stairs, but the Beast made chase. As Bruce made it down the last step, the Beast made one last jump and tackled him. â€œYOU WILL STAY OUT OF MY CASTLE!!â€ it cried. â€œPlease! Donâ€™t make me angry! You donâ€™t wanna know whatâ€™s inside!â€ Bruce had warned the Beast too late. Thus, his skin turned into a dark green hue and his shirt and pants were torn to shreds. The Hulk bellowed with an astounding amount of rage: â€œFURRY MAN LEAVE HULK ALONE!!â€
