The Grit And Gore Of ‘KOTOR’ Shows How Star Wars Games Should Be Made

We love KOTOR and we’ve made that pretty clear in our posts over the years. KOTOR has seemed to take on a life of its own in the fandom that grew around it. And you just don’t see that anymore today. The Star Wars games that are being made aren’t hitting those same tones and creating the same feelings in the fans. What was it that made KOTOR so special? Sara Elsam has written a really great piece for LAD Bible that basically expresses everything I feel about KOTOR, and how it shows us the model for what Star Wars games should be like today. They basically say everything I would say already, so rather than repeat, here’s a snippet from Sara: “And in Knights of the Old Republic, you get to pick your destiny. You can be bad – like, really bad. Sith bad. Want to force someone to kill their best…

This is the way: Star Wars fans raise over $10,000 in support of trans rights

Here’s a happy news story for a change: Star Wars fans raise over $5,000 in support of trans rights! It all began when over the past week or so, Mandalorian actor Gina Carano’s social media posts stirred up controversy. She seemed to have a lot to say about a lot of things, and not all of it was kind or flattering. But Star Wars fans are a special breed, and definitely passionate, and decided to do something to counter the hurtful language she was using. A group of Star Wars fans decided to come together and create a GoFundMe to support trans rights. Within the first two hours of creation, they had already blown past their initial goal. At the time I am writing this, they’re over $10,000 which will go to support the Transgender Law Center, an organization that “changes law, policy, and attitudes so that all people can live safely, authentically, and…

Evaluating The “Star Wars” Slots

We’ve done articles about the long and complicated history of “Star Wars” video games before. There’s no right or wrong answer as to which of them is best; we all have our own opinions, and nobody has the right to tell you that your personal preferences are wrong. You might believe that “Masters of Teras Kasi” is the best of all the “Star Wars” games, and we might tilt our heads a little at you when you say that based on the fact that all of its reviews are horrible, you’re entitled to your take.  What we haven’t done before is take a truly detailed look at a whole different genre of “Star Wars” games, by which we mean the line of “Star Wars” online slots that you’ll find at casino websites.

Oscars New Rules For Diversity and Inclusion for Best Picture Consideration

New Oscars eligibility rules for Best Picture consideration are creating confusion within studios, who are left wondering what impact (if any) on their movies it will have in the consideration for 2021 Oscars nomination.  In the meanwhile, critics are divided. Some call these rules into question because they detract from a movie’s merit, and put an unreasonable emphasis on quotas over quality instead. While others are left wondering whether these rules go far enough or whether they’re simply setting too low of a threshold, one which frankly already is in play. In other words, the Oscars are seeming to be doing something but in reality perpetuating the status quo. As with any attempt at change, there’s bound to be supporters as well as critics. What the Oscars have attempted isn’t perfect, by any stretch of the imagination, but in spirit it’s nevertheless a step in the right direction.  The Oscars…
