LucasArts 1982 – 2013

   I would be remiss if I didn’t take a moment to mention the “passing” of a wonderful company. What does this have to do with collecting, picking or selling? Well I used to collect Star Wars games and the occasional other title that the company would publish. I am unable to play the oldies on my newer system without having to jump through a number of hoops (which I just may re-jump them).

   Now news just hit that the layoffs are starting at ILM. I am not sure if this is  business as usual for the industry or if Palpatine is running Disney. Either way this is a major shake up and the coming months will be interesting.

   My advice… let go of your attachments and preconceived notions, let these things unfold as they will. Better things may rise from these ashes.

   As for the people who lost their jobs today, as a man who was laid off in early 2011 and is still looking for gainful employment, I can only say that you all are very talented and you’ve worked for a Legendary Company so you won’t be out of work for long. May the Force be with you, all.
