This week we’re talking about Mark Hamill’s comments on Twitter regarding the Force “killing” Luke Skywalker, meanwhile The Last Jedi is holding the lead in U.S. Blu-Ray sales. Also, Kotaku’s recent article on Rockstar Games and ‘Crunch’ in the Video Games industry, and how it may explain why DICE seems slower with updates than other companies. Lastly, Jade Raymond recently left EA Motive, the studio she founded, and the coverage may provide some clue as to why. But this seems to be a problem at EA, with execs and directors leaving Star Wars titles with alarming regularity. It’s almost like they don’t know what they’re doing with the Star Wars IP.
The Force “killed” Luke? Mark Hamill’s comments on Twitter
THE FORCE KILLED LUKE. You have to acknowledge the irony in his fate.
Almost like an addict that kicked his habit cold-turkey, remained clean for decades, only to re-use just once & then, tragically, overdoses.#SadSkywalker #ForceFatality #JediJunkie pic.twitter.com/CmavbUUBJh

Rockstar Games, Crunch and DICE
This may not be a popular opinion, but with the recent article on @RockstarGames by @Kotaku, maybe #Battlefront2 isn't as fast with the content updates because @EA_DICE doesn't treat it's employees like garbage with unreasonable mandatory hours? @BenWalke @phatseejay
