It’s true! So says Kotaku, who have announced that Travelers’ Tales have announced they’ll be making a Clone Wars game in the style of their popular (and very, very fun) Lego Star Wars games. Apparently they’ll be based on the first two seasons of the show (season 2 just started a little while ago, right? With the Mandalorians?) and will come out this fall for pretty much everything. You guys have heard my rants about Clone Wars, but I’d play a Lego game based on the Star Wars Holiday Special if they made it. And as long as the characters look like Legos and not puppets from the ’50s, my biggest problem with the Clone Wars will be utterly avoided. Keen!
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
