I was greatly saddened to hear the news that LucasArts would be shutting there doors, to no longer develop their own games but instead sell out the licenses to other studios.

Not only did they make some brilliant games they had some of the sharpest and wittiest writing in gaming, games such as Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle had me hooked from the get go and I will also love them for that. A pity.

In other news (both game related, seem to be in that mood this morning) these articles are worth a read:
