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….

Inaccessible Worlds of SWTOR

Here’s something fun for SWTOR fans: a video with a bunch of delete worlds and incomplete dev testing levels. This has no game story spoilers so no worries if you have not played through all of the game yet. It’s a fun behind-the-scenes look into game development, even if you’re not a SWTOR fan. About the video: “Hey SWTOR-Friends, in this playlist we are looking into the inaccessible worlds of SWTOR. These include the Dev-Worlds and Deleted Worlds from the game. I didn’t looked into every world, because there are too much and some of them are empty or are very small.” Check it out yourself here: What do you think? What was the most interesting part for you?

Remnants of the Order – A Star Wars Fan Film

If you’re stuck in your house for social isolation, it’s a great time to catch up on some Star Wars fan films! That’s what I’ve been doing and I have a few great ones to bring to you over the next few days (or weeks). Starting with Remnants of the Order. This one is from FantastFilms and it’s a full-length film that comes in a little over 20 minutes long. The acting is great, the characters have real personality, and the film overall is well shot. I really love the look and feel of the whole thing We even get to see some personalities from the Troopers and it makes them feel more humanized and not just like fighter bots like some films. If it feels a little slow in the beginning, give it time. I got so invested around mid-way through, I just had to see what happened next!…

Darth Vader vs. Darth Malgus – Versus Series

I absolutely LOVE the versus series that puts one Star Wars character against another to determine who would “win”. They are typically very similar characters with a lot in common, and then it’s broken down into their strengths and weaknesses and how they compare. This one was a really fun one for me: Darth Vader vs. Darth Malgus. Before seeing the video yourself, who would you rank top between the two? Now, see the video to hear their thoughts on who would win if the two were to face off in a fight: What do you think of their points? Do you agree? Did your choice come out on top? Some highlights: Vader is very intelligent Malgus has brute force – SITH juggernaut Vader faces different opponents based on the individual opponent and their strengths Vader has mental blocks that he creates for himself along the way Malgus is talented…

ILMxLAB’s Star Wars: Vader Immortal Was Almost Something Different

So many Star Wars projects have started off one way, then ventured into another direction throughout the way. One such project is Star Wars: Vader Immortal. Speaking to Tested in an in-depth Making Of video, series director Ben Snow described how different the project was initiated. It would have been more passive and the players would not have embodied a character at all. Crazy, huh? “It was originally going to be a fly on the wall narrative where you essentially observe the goings on,” Snow explained. “And so the first prototype that I became involved in, we were essentially trying to grey box/proof out/pre-viz the first script that he [David S. Goyer] had written.” If you’ve been a longtime fan of VR technology then you might remember that ILMxLAB talked about Vader Immortal as far back as 2016. This left some fans wondering if it was going to get canned or…

KENOBI – A Star Wars Fan Film

If you’ve been a reader here for a while, you know that I love fan films. There’s something special about the energy that fellow fans put into Star Wars projects and I love it! This film, KENOBI by Jamie Costa via YouTube is a perfect example of what I love so much about fan films. It has a true Star Wars feel to it, and it ticks all the boxes of what makes a great film. You can see it for yourself here: A really cool factoid about this fan film: they got James Arnold Taylor, the voice of Obi-Wan in the Clone Wars to be in their FAN film? This is sooo awesome! If you didn’t recognize him, he’s Leegus, the Empire Captain. How awesome is that little cameo? I just love it!

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Baby Yoda Mod

The baby Yoda craze is real! And yes, we know “The Child” from the Mandalorian has not been confirmed to be Yoda, but you’re not going to get people to stop calling it that. But here’s some adorable news for you: The Star Wars Battlefront II community now gets to play as Baby Yoda, with the help of a mod you can install in your game. The mod was created by the user Nanobuds and turns the existing BB-8 hero into Baby Yoda from the Disney+ show The Mandalorian. It started out as a joke and originally only changed the BB-8 model to Baby Yoda. “I started this as a joke mod but it ended up being pretty cool,” Nanobuds said about the creation. “He looks wacky on the frontend- There is nothing I can do about this. I can’t change the animations to make BB8’s arm or wire go…

Why Does EA Keep Canceling Star Wars Games?

Should EA Lose their Star Wars License

If you’ve been around our site for a while, you’ll know that we’ve written about quite a few anticipated Star Wars video games that were later canceled. Some were put to rest before they ever had the chance to be developed and others had us ready to purchase when they pulled the plug. One thing they all had in common: they left us disappointed. So, why does EA keep canceling Star Wars games? Well, it would seem they have different reasons for doing so. Since EA secured the publishing rights on Star Wars games from Disney, they have canceled at least three Star Wars games. The most recent one being the Battlefront spin-off. EA has given various reasons each time they cancel one of these anticipated games but the common thread seems to be timing. The latest Star Wars game, code-named “Viking” was rumored to be a Battlefront spin-off with…
