xx VU Ripped off George Lucas!?!?!?!
« Thread started on: Nov 2nd, 2005, 07:12am »

This has been bugging my for quite some time.

RANT MODE ON

Cloudy Domain. Home of flying gnorcs and a crippled dragon elder. Also giant gassious clouds, puzzle platforms and a city with very farmiliar architecture. This, my fellow SFAers is a carbonite copy if Bespin (punshot). They have the giant orangey gass clouds, a replica of Cloud City's architecture and style and they also have an actual Could City. My God they even have the tibanna gas platforms for cying out loud! Why has this gone unnoticed by George Lucas? The first thing I got up there I laughed for 15 minutes straight at the almost FRIGHTENING similarities throughout the ENTIRE level! I mean OMFG. Have you seen the blue rings embedded into the platforms sides? It screams Star Wars rip. Howbout the stuff under the platforms that is supposed to hold it up? You know the kindof domes or bubbles under your feet? Also, ripped from SW. Gassious clouds, check. Obviously ripped. And the Sgt Byrd missions on that level, all you would need was TIE fighters and it would be a clone of Rogue Squadron. I mean eriously, does VU know how much Censored their getting themselve into? Maybe their trying to be funny, but it sad. Downright sad. Please comment!
... and by now you can probably tell im a Star Wars fan. A light parody I find funny like Wierd Al Yankovich but this is just a disgrace... like the rest of VU's Spyro games.

Hmm... if George Lucas spotted that, he would SUE VU for that easily - a great example of copyright infringement. =) Better add this to the long list of why VU should leave Spyro alone.

Well, technically, if VU had permission, they'd've had the copyright right there on the title screen, like how THPS4 had the copyright for Darth Maul on the title screen.

Maybe Lucas can't be bothered to care about what VU did, though. Maybe he knows that he'd lose if he sued anyway, since there's a lot you can do with creative liscense... And not like Bespin has the only city in the clouds. Cloud Cukooland is one too... though it's just a mountain flying in the air... *trails off*

At least Spyro wasn't fighting Red with a lightsaber in the Cloudy Domain, though.

I know there's a Coheed song that has a bit of the Jedi theme in it by accident, but there's somethings that can't be avoided. It could be a minor coincidence or just a tribute anyways. smiley Don't lose sleep over it.

Cloud City was grayish in color and was more like a castle.

I hope George Lucas plays Spyro AHT and sues the hell out of VU. IT would not only enforce copyright infrigement laws, but also VU would have to sell Spyro to pay off the 3 million or so $ they would owe Lucas, which would give Spyro literally a new chance.

Why would he sue VU? Wouldn't it make more sense to sue Eurocom, who actually made A Hero's Tale?

VU and Eurocom both made the game, or as a young dragon once said, " Yeah somthing like that ."

And besides, I doubt either party would sue the other over such a trivial matter. The cost of court is astronomical and, really, there's no good reason for Lucas to sue, anyway.

And considering that Star Wars ripped off just about every film-maker previously, it's a moot point.
