The Fall & Rise Of Battlefront 2

We talk a lot about Star Wars games here and Battlefront 2 has been at the top of the list of things we chat about here. From the first reveal, to the release, through all the updates and to today, we’ve tried to bring you all the news and info about Battlefront 2. And we’ve heard what you had to say about it, too. The ups and downs, the fall and rise. In the end, Battlefront 2 turned out to be a pretty decent game but this was not without a very rocky start. The Act Man has another interesting video on this topic. See it here: Of course, this is just one fan’s opinions but personally, I find his thoughts spot-on with most of how I feel about things, too. It’s an interesting watch, even if you don’t agree and we’re always open to hearing your rebuttals in the…

Star Wars: Heir to the Empire – Chapter 7

I don’t know about you, but I, for one, am becoming emotionally invested in this series. Star Wars: Heir to the Empire has a new chapter up and since the last one left us hanging with Leia and Han in a precarious situation, I couldn’t wait to see how they would all get out of this one. These shorts are so well done and I can’t imagine the amount of work that goes in to pull it off. I really enjoy them and if you are hearing about this for the first time now, please go back and watch Chapters 1-6 before you watch this one. Now, are you all up to speed? Great! Let’s move on to the next chapter. What happened after that cliffhanger on the market scene? See for yourself here: If you haven’t seen the previous 6 chapters, you can catch them here Chapter 7 of…

Could the SYSTEMS ALLIANCE destroy the DEATH STAR II (and its fleet)? | Mass Effect vs Star Wars

Here’s another fun versus video from EckhartsLadder. This one explores another hypothetical Star Wars scenario to see who would win in a potential match up against a Mass Effect universe. Fans of both will likely find this interesting. Of course, there are many different factors to consider in a hypothetical situation like this, so the video will break it down for you and set some boundaries and guidelines. Of course, if this were real, we know there are many different ways it could go. So, lots of “ifs and buts”, but it’s still very fun and interesting. I love to take some early bets/calculations on who I think would win before I watch his breakdown to see what he says. Could the Systems Alliance of the Mass Effect Universe, as led by Commander Shepard, destroy the fearsome second Death Star, and its defense fleet Death Squadron (including the Super Star…

‘Star Wars: Squadrons’ Won’t Have Microtransactions

Are you ready for a new Star Wars game? EA has officially announced their long-awaited project code-named “Maverick”. Star Wars: Squadrons is a 5v5 dogfighting game releasing this Fall. It will feature a lot of customizations for your ships that you earn through gameplay. It has an emphasis on multiplayer but also has a single-player campaign, set in the time after the Battle of Endor. Initially, there were rumors that it might have microtransactions but those rumors have since been squashed. Motive Studios’ creative director Ian Frazier also said it isn’t a living game, meaning they won’t deliver post-launch content. “Our mindset has been very old school,” Frazier says. “We’re trying to say with this game that we have a $40 price point, we want to feel generous to players, and we want it to feel like a complete experience. Like ‘You gave us your $40. Here’s a game that you…

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Actor Opens Up About Shelved Third Entry

Sam Witwer had some things to say about the canceled plans for The Force Unleashed III. During a Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back watch with IGN, Witwer shared some thoughts about both The Force Unleashed II and III. As many of you will recall, the ending of II left us with a mighty cliffhanger. Starkiller handed Darth Vader over to the Rebels and III had meant to pick up where II left off. Only, that never happened. Witwer says: I’m not comfortable sharing everything we discussed, but the idea was, that was the biggest mistake ever, and that Vader, like he was toying with Luke, the Force Unleashed I and II games were all about Vader toying with Starkiller. And at some point, there would be a confrontation where Starkiller’s fighting Vader, and everything that worked before suddenly isn’t working now. He’s like, ‘I cut off your hand!,’ and Vader says, ‘That…

Clone Wars Composer Speaks Out on Canceled Project Ragtag

EA’s canceled Star Wars game, known as “Project Ragtag” around the industry, seemed to be the setup for the perfect game. It was to be a single-player adventure set in the Star Wars universe, led by Amy Hennig, the mastermind behind Uncharted and the Jak and Daxter franchises. So what went wrong? Well, that’s a very good question. The game went into development in 2013 but was canceled in 2017 and the studio developing it was shuttered. They cited a dwindling interest in single-player games, but that sure doesn’t see to be the case for Jedi: Fallen Order. We may never know exactly what happened, but as the years pass, we have seen some of the people involved in that project come forward and share some info about their role on it. That’s exactly what happened with Kevin Kiner’s interview with Inverse. Here’s a snippet of that: Kiner says he…

MACE WINDU – Star Wars Fan Film

It’s fan film time again and I love everything about this one. For one, I’m a big fan of Mace Windu and here we get to see a young Windu in action. Next, the acting was really great and the costuming was of professional level and keeping with the time period. It has the staple of a great Star Wars film – an awesome lightsaber duel. And the story is really great. While it’s a short film, you get immersed it in right away and I can’t wait to see more films by them. I wish they’d do more Windu but I’m sure anything they produce will be a fun, entertaining watch. Nearly 20 years before Phantom Menace, young Jedi Knight Mace Windu locates a missing Jedi. What he encounters is unexpected. See for yourself here: From the creators, Full Fledged Pro: Subscribe for more cinematic short films! Thanks for…
