On Saturday the 13th of April, Big Red Barrel were invited back to help host another evening at Loading Bar in Soho London. To quote the Order of Service from the night;

"Welcome to an evening to celebrate the life of LucasArts and the legacy of games they leave behind. Although we are saddened by the loss, we are united by our passion for the hours of joy that they bought into our lives.

Tonight we remember the good times and commemorate the loss of LucasArts in the manner expected of the adults they helped mould us into - by playing videogames and drinking cocktails with silly names. It is what they would have wanted.

Please join us in lifting a glass and toasting, not to a death, but a life well developed."

Thanks

A Big Red Barrel thanks to Gaming Bunker for the loan of a truly awesome PC for the evening.

Some people will say I'm not a true player of Lucas Arts but I remember them mainly as the Star Wars publishing house. I was torn between two moments, leaving Sev behind in Republic Commando but in the end I went for a game earlier in my gamer career. So my main moment comes from the titan that is KotOR.

The twist in KotOR is my greatest memory from any game that bore the Lucas Arts logo.

I was late to the KotOR party. I was a mere 12 years old when I first experienced that game. It was the first RPG I ever played. And the game as a whole shaped the style of game I enjoy. I loved everything about that game and I still enjoy playing the game to this day. But the twist in KotOR. To me, it's just a stand out moment in gaming never mind Lucas Arts. It's fantastic. That moment has stuck with me and I still enjoy it when ever I replay KotOR.

So yeah, there's my greatest Lucas Arts moment (and I'm gonna go play KotOR again).
