Indy videogame trailer

01.27.2009

If your fingers fidgeted while watching the most recent adventures of creaky archaeologist INDIANA JONES, subconsciously wishing you could control his actions (preferably in a more interesting scenario), you were probably looking forward to playing the nefarious treasure-collector himself in a videogame incarnation.

Alas, it seems that the recent rumors of the next-gen console game's cancellation are true... mostly. While it appears that the good Doctor won't be bringing his digitized likeness to the the Xbox 360 and PS3, LucasArts' INDIANA JONES AND THE STAFF OF KINGS will be swinging onto the Nintendo Wii, if the new trailer below is any indication.

So prepare to break furniture while flailing the Wii controller to crack your whip and slug some Nazis.

Extra Tidbit: Maybe George Lucas demanded the games be terminated because their story was exponentially better than what he put on theater screens last summer...

welcome to the past

One would assume the reason it says playstation is because they are also gonna release this as a PSone or PS2 title (afterall it doesnt say ps3 like other games ads)--

But either way, this is so moronic its right in line with lucas's work-- Why on earth they wouldnt make an indy game for the number one console (if not all three), is beyond me... They should be starting with 360 and ps3 and porting it down to wii and ps2-- Its obviously easier to downgrade the graphics rather than upgrade

... Yet theyll make a clearly more-childish Lego indy for all three consoles?

Its just painfully stupid on all accounts.

made for Wii by A2M

This game id being developped where I work, at A2M (artificia mind and movement) for the Wii, if there are other versions they're not getting done here. Dont know if those cinematics are from the Wii version though.

THIS IS A TRAILER FOR INDY 5!

Lucas and Spielberg got so stoned on CGI used for Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Nukeable Fridges and CGI Gophers, that they wanted to do Indy 5 in full CGI. The film was a worse mess than Indy 4 (if you can imagine such a thing), so it was suggested to Lucas that he cut his losses and release the aborted film to the world as a game for the Wii. True story.

Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was the best one of the series besides Raiders.

Annoyed by the Indy 4 fan hate

Not in denial, sorry. The movie sucking is a matter of opinion, not fact. Shall we look at RottenTomatoes or Metacritic?

Indy 4 wasn't that bad. It doesn't really compare to the original three, but still it's not as bad as people make it out to be.

this sucks

i was really hoping they made another game like Indiana Jones and the Emperors Tomb that came out on the first xbox, it was actually really good and even its story was better than Crystal Skull.

PlayStation

The final screen says PlayStation, so it would appear that it's not exclusive to the Wii.

INDY 4 KINDA BLEW

Anyone who believes otherwise is in denial. Joblo is entitled to their opinion just like all of us. Get over the fact that it sucked. The game looks... fun?

Ok take everything you just saw, dumb it down to an insulting degree, and imagine the graphics to look like a knock off of a Bruce Timm cartoon. That's what this will probably amount to on the Wii.

Which is sad, because I own one.

yack. Not the biggest fan of the Wii. I'd rather play the game on the 360.

Hope I get to.

BY THE WAY

While the Indy games are awesome, wouldn't they be so much better if Harrison Ford voiced Indy in them?
