SWTOR Ranked third most popular MMORPG by the Xfire community in 2014

According to the Xfire community Star Wars: The Old Republic did very well on their final ranking for Digital Dozen. The scores were calculated by taking each weeks rank for the game and the games average ranking. If a game was not in the top 12 it did not end up on the list, giving it a score of zero. SWTOR ranked number 3 on the top 12. Its score in 2013 was 10.1 and rank was 3. The score for 2014 is 9.4 and the number of weeks that it was in the rankings is 52.

Star Wars Battlefront: Is THIS How Heroes Work?!

By now we all know that Star Wars: Battlefront does not have an official release date as of yet, but the people at EA and DICE are working hard on the game right now. When it comes to first person shooter games there have been many changes in the gaming industry. The question is do you think Star Wars: Battlefront  will take on the form of Titanfall for the heroes? If DICE did follow the way Titanfall works each player will have an opportunity to play as a hero since the game is set on a timer. This would make it fair for every player in the game, but there are different ways DICE could make the game work. A player could become the hero once they have enough points, just like it works in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and their killstreak formula. However, this can make it where…

Star Wars Battlefront Sticks To First Person Gameplay?

Fans are becoming desperate to learn more about Star Wars: Battlefront and since EA is holding off on giving an official release date, everyone is crossing their fingers that it will at least have a date for E3. EA has not stated too much about the game and one area that has become a controversial topic is whether or not it will have the ability to play in 3rd person. What EA has stated thus far has made everyone nervous. They said that they will have at least one major FPS per year, starting with Star Wars: Battlefront this year and Battlefield 5 next year. This could be their way of non-officially stating that the game will be solely FPS style. One thing we can all agree on is if they make it FPS with no third person perspective ability in the game, fans are going to be VERY upset….

Star Wars Battlefront has Zombie Death Troopers? Here are the Changes We Want

With the latest news and rumors about Star Wars: Battlefront comes many hopes and expectations. With the game being set to release sometime late this year many are praying that there are some major improvements and additions to the series. Campaign Style: Take it to the next level Many players want the new Star Wars installment to have more focus on the campaign mode. Many players enjoy multiplayer shootouts, but for those who enjoy the story and “mission” style, we think EA should focus more on the story portion of the game. It seems that gaming developers are starting to slack on the campaign modes and are focusing more on the online multiplayer experience. This is all great, but there are many people out there who want to play single style; solo. Hopefully, EA will put enough focus on both parts of the game for the sake of every type…
