Visceral Games’ Amy Hennig and Todd Stashwick explain why their upcoming Star Wars game isn’t being previewed at this year’s E3. Next week, members of the entertainment industry will descend upon the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) in downtown Los Angeles for E3, an annual trade fair for the video game industry where publishers go to introduce and show off their upcoming games. This year Star Wars: Battlefront II is the talk of the town, and much of Saturday’s early press conference was devoted to the game that releases this November.

Audiences are used to watching the protagonist fight two or more opponents with vigour, neither gaining an advantage over the other, until that final moment when the protagonist manages to unlock a hidden power/realize what’s at stake/remember a promise to their dead beloved.
You know the drill; it’s just not as entertaining if the good guys are always the ones who end up on top, after stomping out the bad guys like bugs.

Without Arrow, the amazing superhero universe on The CW simply wouldn’t exist. The grounded and gritty approach to the Green Arrow character hit at the right exact time on the network, and it has since expanded out to an incredibly fun multiverse of interconnected heroes all wearing pleather or something like it. It’s easy to think fondly about Arrow because of this accomplishment. This is especially true after experiencing season 5, as it was without a doubt the best season in Arrow’s 100+ episode history. It has been a long and rocky road with Oliver Queen, though.
