Star Wars: Legion – An Overview

Warfare is an ineluctable element of the Star Wars™ universe, whether it’s a blow dispensed to the Rebel Alliance during the Battle of Hoth or Rebel Strike squads facing off against legions of stormtroopers on Endor.

The Mandalorian Ep 7 & 8 Rated 100% on Tomatometer

Can a show truly be perfect? If so, The Mandalorian has reached that pinnacle of critic perfection. Now that the entire first season has dropped on Disney+, the critics have weighed in and the show gets a 100% Tomato rating on Rotten Tomatoes for episodes 7 and 8. This is quite possibly unheard of. Most shows start off strong and peter out at the end. And when it comes to Star Wars stories… well, even the biggest fans know they have a pattern of leaving us with a let-down. The Mandalorian, however, does exactly the opposite of that. What started out as a fun, action-packed episodic adventure with a cute little “baby Yoda” who even non-Star Wars fans could get excited about has the most epic ending ever in that the ending is just the beginning. Episode 8 leaves us with more questions than answers, but in that “I can’t…

Star Wars Gamers Fans Reflect on SWTOR Anniversary

It’s the 8th anniversary of SWTOR and some of you have been around since the very start with us. Some of you have been reading and sharing our posts since the very beginning and we are SO grateful for you all. Today, in honor of the SWTOR 8th anniversary and our amazing readers, I want to share some of YOUR memories of the game. Lisa Rodriguez I used to be part of a guild named the Order of Ashla. I had some really fun RP there, mostly with players like Nol, Hydro, Trouten and Church. We tried to keep in touch after wards but now, it’s just Nol and Hydro I’m still in touch with. The guild died out after the server change including also switching ourselves to another RP server. When we tried to continue it, I wasn’t online often enough as a Council Member and something happened to where the…

Happy 8-Year Anniversary from Star Wars: The Old Republic

On December 20th, SWTOR celebrating its 8th year, I remember this anniversary all too well because a) I was writing for this site and we were SUPER pumped for the launch and b) I had a baby 2 days later.

Should Jedi: Fallen Order Get a Sequel?

Jedi Fallen Order

We were all VERY excited for a new Star Wars game and despite some issues, Jedi: Fallen Order did not disappoint. But, should it get a sequel? CBR.com says YES! And honestly, I agree. Are there some issues with the game? Yes. Is it still worth playing? Yes. But does it still deserve a sequel? Yes! Jonathan Figueroa says: ” After dozens of canceled Star Wars video games — and a handful of lame ones — Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has arrived, finally delivering on the promise of an action-packed lightsaber adventure. It isn’t perfect, as the game has its fair share of issues and bugs, but Fallen Order can be improved upon in a sequel — and yes, it definitely deserves one. Before we discuss what we want to see in a sequel, though, let’s talk about why it needs one, and where this game succeeds the most. “ And he really hits the nail on the head…

Do Star Wars Trailers Reveal Too Many Spoilers?

Sure, we’re all super excited to see the next movie, and the next Star Wars video game, but do the trailers reveal too many spoilers? This is the complaint that a lot of fans made recently when some say that trailers gave away too many crucial facts and plot lines about The Rise of Skywalker. Are they giving too much away? Is there any reason for us to still see the movies when the trailer gives us a total play-by-play? The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailers have revealed two huge plot points — the return of Emperor Palpatine, and the appearance of “Dark Rey.”  Some fans were not happy about this but Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has an explanation. She explains in an interview with io9 that they are bringing the movies to a conclusion now and this is one reason they’ve intentionally chosen to be less secretive, like Star Wars movies…
