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…

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.
