Star Wars Galaxies: A Community Together

For the first time in our history, the entire globe is facing a crisis at the same time. The pandemic has changed the lives of everyone in different ways, but through it, we are finding new ways to connect with the world around us. For many, online gaming has been a way to keep occupied, connect with others, and keep their spirits up during social isolation. Swg Legends decided to make a great and uplifting video about the community, with positive messages shared in a compilation. I think this is a very great video to watch, even if you don’t currently play SWG Legends. If you’re a Star Wars fan at all, this will speak to you as a fine example of how the Star Wars community comes together. We asked Star Wars Galaxies players to send a video message sharing a positive message with the community. We had so…

Star Wars Smuggler’s Fate

All of this social isolation means I’m spending even more time at home than usual (and that’s saying something) and I’m finding one way I enjoy passing that time is with new videos. And if it’s Star Wars, well, you know I’m gonna watch it. Star Wars fan films are totally my thing. The good, the bad, the ugly – and everything in between! I’ve said it before but there’s something great about even the “bad” fan films. The spirit of Star Wars that goes into each one is special in and of itself. Here’s the latest one I’m enjoying: Star Wars Smuggler’s Fate. It’s just over 10 minutes long and is the final part of a trilogy, so be sure to watch the others first, if you haven’t. While this one is not Hollywood-level acting or videography, it has a charge to it. I also really like the costuming…

Why Darth Vader HATED Grand Admiral Thrawn – Star Wars Explained

Just why did Darth Vader hate Grand Admiral Thrawn so much? It’s time for another Star Wars Explained video from The Stupendous Wave. In this video, they read an excerpt from the Thrawn novel and explain to us why there was so much beef between Vader and Thrawn. It’s right at 9 minutes long and gives a lot of understanding of the relationship between Darth Vader and the Grand Admiral and will help you understand just why Vader hated him so much. If you’ve got a few minutes, I definitely recommend it. This video covers it all: Did you learn something new in this video? What was your favorite part? Would you add anything? Also, let us know if you’ve read the Thrawn novel mentioned in the video. Join the forum discussion on this post

Is This the Worst Star Wars Game Ever?

We are all about the Star Wars games here – it’s what our site was started for – and I’ve been a fan for all of my life. I love every Star Wars game I’ve ever seen, pretty much. I like the new games and I like old-school games and anything that brings the magic of Star Wars to a new or broader audience, or that brings us Star Wars in a new way, then I’m all for it. But every now and then, there’s a Star Wars game that’s questionable. I have to ask myself, “Do you like this because it’s a decent game, or just because it has a Star Wars theme?” And this was one of those games: Star Wars Super Bombad Racing. Who remembers this one? I used to play this one as a kid and honestly, I loved it. Maybe young me just didn’t know…

Shrouded Destiny: A Star Wars Long Tale

It’s time for another Star Wars fan film and this one is so fantastic! The full length trailer is about 3 minutes long and I’ll embed it for you below, but I highly encourage you to follow this project and keep an eye on it because it’s really amazing. ABOUT THE EPISODE: My name is Shahbaz Sarwar and I’m a man with a dream. A dream of taking my 16 years of accumulated experience from my time in the film industry and take a shot at getting the attention of Lucasfilm and Disney, so that they will meet with me and my team. The goal? To pitch a unique story in the Star Wars universe that will have the scale of Game of Thrones; the drama of Breaking Bad; the meticulousness of The Wire, and the visceral action of “The Raid”. Coming all the way from Copenhagen, Denmark, it seems…

If you’re playing SWG Legends and you want to be able to ramp up your graphics, here’s a great video showing you exactly how to do so. It’s just about 6 minutes in length and you can make all of these tweaks to your game settings in under 10 minutes. It’s very useful. Napyet was running the game on potato settings until someone mentioned it in a comment on a video and he decided to take some time and figure out how to tweak these settings and improve the graphics. He put that process to a video tutorial to help all of us know how as well. Check it out here: Star Wars: Galaxies is still possible to play via SWGEMU, but you need the original CD witch is availible from amazon: http://amzn.to/28PSxPj So, what do you think?

Rogue Seven: A Star Wars Fan Film

I have a real treat for you today. A fan film unlike any other I’ve shared here. And a fan film created by an actual filmmaker from LA. James Martinez recently released a fan-film set in the Star Wars universe titled “ROGUE SEVEN” that is exactly what the pandemic-stricken world needs right now. If you’re looking for an escape to help you get away for a while and immerse yourself in some Star Wars fandom, then this is the film to do it! Ever since the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in 2017, the fan base of thefranchise has never been as divided as it is today. This schism is fueled by anger towards the Sequel Trilogy and this worldwide debate has embedded itself into our social structure. It has gotten to the point where it has become overwhelming for many. Therefore, instead of choosing a side, Los…

Knights Of The Old Republic And Another Voice-Acting Win

If you’re not familiar with one of the most popular Star Wars games of all time, you may not know that Knights of the Old Republic, fondly known as KOTOR, was very well-known for its voice-acting. Here’s something you might not have known: IL HK-47 was not written to be a comedic character. So, if you’ve played the game, you might be going “what?” right now. Kotaku has a piece that explains how this happened. It’s from the Boss Fight Books series, written by journalist Alex Kane. Here’s the full story on how he became a funny character: Darragh O’Farrell was the go-to voice-over (VO) director for Star Wars video game projects, in the LucasArts era and beyond. It was O’Farrell who had the idea to do the full voice-acted recording for the whole game. “It was one of the most ambitious projects that LucasArts or BioWare had ever attempted,”…

This Star Wars fan film was made because my son Ralph really wanted to be a Jawa!” Here’s a really fun little Star Wars short from ianbenjaminkenny about a Jawa who becomes a Jedi.

‘Star Wars’ Series From ‘Russian Doll’ Co-Creator Leslye Headland in the Works at Disney Plus

In an exclusive interview with Variety, we found out that Disney had something new in the works – a new Star Wars series for Disney Plus from the co-creator of “Russian Doll”, Leslye Headland. I, for one, was a HUGE fan of Russian Doll (Hello? Where’s our Season 2?) and I think this could be a good matchup for the new Star Wars series that is said to be female-centric. The details of the show are being kept secret (of course) but it’s said to take place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline from other projects. If anyone can do a female-centric piece well with strong, likable, relatable female characters, it will be Headland. In addition to her work on “Russian Doll”, she also has writing and directing credits in “Seven Deadly Plays”, “About Last Night”, “Sleeping with Other People”, and “Black Monday” to name a few….

A BIG Update from the Star Wars Battlefront II Team

After more than two years of free content, the vision for Star Wars Battlefront II is now complete, according to the Creative Director Dennis Brännvall. Also: The Battle on Scarif is coming! The game had a rocky start but has since deployed 25 free content updates that have shaped and expanded Star Wars Battlefront II into almost a completely new game. Most fans will say they redeemed themselves from those early launch days with great content updates, immersive content, battles you can play solo or with friends, and so much more. They are now completing their vision as they return to the Age of Rebellion, which was started in February. See what Brännvall and the team have to say about this. Here’s what the official update says: Looking beyond April, we’re transitioning to a phase where the servers, in-game challenges, recurring events such as Double XP and more, and game support will carry this broad and…

Possible Direction of EA’s New Star Wars Game

EA is working on a new Star Wars game. For those who don’t know, EA has partnered with Disney to have exclusive rights to the Star Wars license until 2023. This means they are the only studio who can make Star Wars games at this time. Some fans aren’t happy about that, but it is what it is and we can’t really do anything to change that. So for now, at least, we have to work with what we’re given and that means embracing EAs role in all of this. Despite some canceled games and a rocky start to Battlefront II, they’re not doing all that bad in the gaming department. What might we see in the future? FlickeringMyth.com speculates on what future Star Wars games we might see. A Star Wars Battlefront III, perhaps? What would that look like? And what would be the benefit to a new game,…

I, for one, am very happy about this announcement from Aspyr and can’t wait until it’s my turn to replay this old classic from my own youth. When it comes to Star Wars games in general, we’re not going to complain about a new title release, or a re-release. It’s just great to see people keeping the Star Wars spirit alive. That said, good games should never be forgotten and Producer James Vicari agrees. In this interview with StarWars.com, he describes why they felt the need to bring this port of the old game back to the modern systems.
