Evil Obi-Wan gets the axe, now awesome only in theory
Due to recent equal time laws for megapopular science fiction series, I'm now obligated to post the following:
Kotaku reports that game developer Free Radical (developers of Timesplitters and a few other decent shooters) is folding, ending development of the Star Wars alternate universe title Battlefront III, which would have explored the concept of a dark Obi-Wan Kenobi. Meaning an evil, corrupted Sith lord Obi-Wan, complete with red blade.
And it's the Guinness Obi. Why is the world so cruel?
The Death of Evil Obi-Wan (Kotaku)
Edit: One commenter adds that this makes about as much sense as a Dark Jesus. What an awesome idea. However, concern for my cheerful glowing soul keeps me from pursuing it further.
