Star Wars Battlefront II Update Delayed by Coronavirus Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe is impacting every industry, and the gaming industry is no exception. The popular Star Wars Battlefront II was set to receive a pretty big update this past week. The anticipated Battle of Scarif Update (free) would be adding a lot of new content for players to consume. It was expected to add the planet Scarif to Supremacy and other game modes. It also brought Original Trilogy content to Supremacy. However, this major update has since been delayed. To prevent the spread of the virus and keep people safe, employees from industries all over the globe are laid off or transitioned to working from home.

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…

Ahsoka Standalone ‘Star Wars’ Series Coming to Disney+

Fans of Ahsoka are going to be very excited about this one. I know I am! There have been a lot of delays and cancelations happening in the entertainment sector these days, due to a global pandemic. But there’s one thing we can all look forward to. Great news coming out of a somewhat bleak month, Disney announced they had cast Rosario Dawson to play a live-action version of Ahsoka Tano, previously only a Clone Wars and Rebels animated character, to guest star in the upcoming second season of The Mandalorian. And since then, we’ve heard rumors that this is really a backdoor pilot for a standalone Ahsoka series that will star Dawson, to run on Disney+. This would be a great way to introduce the character with a tie-in and create hype before releasing her own series later. And we’re all about that! She’s an amazing start with over 112 acting credits to her name, including…

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. High volatility slot machines also tend to be high paying slot machines, and with the increased risk you will often find greatly increased jackpots. Slot volatility is an indication of whether you will finish your gaming session with an increased bankroll. Slots machines have a range of volatility from low, to medium, to high, and here we are going to discuss high volatility slots and their pros and cons.  So, What Does Volatility in Slots Mean Exactly? You can be forgiven for thinking that low-volatility means low risk and…

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Now Available on Switch and PS4

A classic favorite, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is now available for the Switch and PS4. The game that was originally released in 2003 is now remastered and making a comeback to some new platforms. It’s been updated with some new, modern controls. If you’re not familiar with the game, it puts you in the role of a new student at Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy and you will fight a mysterious Sith cult throughout the galaxy. A fun aspect of this game is that it allows you to customize your character’s species, appearance, and gender, rather than choose from a pre-set player character. You can also forge your own lightsaber design and choose from the different hilts and saber colors. How cool is that? There’s a single-player mode as well as a multi-player mode for you to enjoy and the controls are updated for the PS4 port so it…

Star Wars 1313 WAS Going to be about Boba Fett

Remember Star Wars 1313? The gritty game we were all looking forward to that was unfortunately canceled before it ever had a chance to get off the ground? Well, there were a lot of rumors going around about this game. People were excited for it because it offered something very different from most Star Wars games up to that point. And a lot of people thought it was going to start Boba Fett (or a similar bounty hunter character). A screenshot that was allegedly shot from the game shows what a lot of us suspected – it may have been about Boba Fett. Shared on Reddit by LifeByTheSword, the screenshot definitely gives us the feel of Boba Fett. Other notable things from this screenshot: The graphics were really far ahead of their time. The game is so crisp and clean. The darkness in the background also has a dystopian feel to it….

Star Wars: Darkness Rising: The Threat Within Chapter 10

Chapter 10 Lando held his breath as he brought them out of hyperspace.  BX had engaged the cloaking device before they had completely slowed to relative speed.  For a moment they were flying blind until the small extensions poked past the cloaking field.   Rae stood behind Lando’s chair, holding onto the back of it.   Nein monitored the ships systems from the co-pilot’s seat.   Lowbacca watched the forward screen from the engineer’s seat.   Nothing could be seen for a moment then the screen flickered and then they could see outside the ship.  “Cloaking devices suck,” Lando said.  “Sure they keep things from being able to see inside the field, but they also prevent you from being able to see out.”  Lowbacca growled and MTD translated.  “You are using passive probes?  How big are they?”  Lando nodded.  “They are a millimeter in width.  There are six that stick past the field.”  “Can’t…
