Star Wars: Darkness Rising: The Threat Within Chapter 12

Chapter 12 “Oh, come on, Lowie,” Ren whispered.  “Aren’t you in yet?” Lowbacca growled at her from where he was half inside a console.  He grabbed hold of the frame and pulled himself out.   “Don’t get that tone with me, Furball,” Rae snapped.  He bared his teeth and held up a small device.  “You were able to get the information?” she asked.  He nodded and tucked the device into one of the pouches on his belt.  Lowbacca paused as he pushed himself to his feet.   He glanced to Rae and saw her frozen.   He growled softly and she nodded.  “I sense it to, Lowie.  Someone’s coming.”  She glanced over to him.  “Where do we go?”  He did not have to think about it.  He knew the only way out was up.  He pointed upward and growled.  Rae didn’t argue, only gave him a curt nod.  They both ran, heading out…

Accidental Cross-play Creates Havoc in Star Wars ‘Jedi Academy’

Leave it to veteran gamers to find (and exploit) game glitches when they find them. That’s pretty much happened this week when veteran PC players of Jedi Academy realized they could invade console games. As we reported recently, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy just recently released for the PS4 and the Switch. Many excited console gamers logged on to play, only to discover an unexpected enemy: PC players of the game. “Apparently all you have to do is take the server IP from a console match, which is clearly visible on console, and enter it in the PC server browser and join,” May Payment noted on the ResetEra forums. “I joined a game where one player was absolutely mopping the floor with us and he had .twitchtv in his username. Sure enough, I looked him up and he was playing on PC in a switch server absolutely decimating everyone.” Not only are more experienced players…

The coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe is impacting every industry, and the gaming industry is no exception.

Star Wars: Darkness Rising: The Threat Within Chapter 11

Chapter 11 General Dene stood next to an I9L2 intelligence droid.  He stood with his hands behind his back wishing that he had another cup of caff but there wasn’t time.  The glossy black droid was not tall as a K-series security droid.  Its torso was larger around to hold the computing power needed.  The general sighed and scanned the night sky.  “What is taking him so long?” he said.  “According to sensors, he entered atmosphere a few minutes ago, General Dene,” the droid said.  “His ship should be landing shortly.”  Dene and I9L2 looked around as they both heard a humming sound.  They both turned in time to see a large corvette come around the tower into view.   The black color of the ship seemed to absorb the light around it, creating hole in the sky.  “Does it have a cloaking device?” Dene asked.  I9L2 was quiet a moment…

What are High Volatility Slots?

If you have been playing casino games for a while, or you have started to research a few online casino games and read reviews, you have probably seen the term ‘slot volatility’ and wondered what it means. Volatility in slot machine games essentially means risk. The risk here is losing money, but as with anything in life, with risk comes reward.
