Star Wars: Rise of the Empire – A Star Wars Fan Film

An empire will rise. Join the rebels in the biggest battles across the galaxy in this epic Star Wars fan film. This is a really awesome fan film from BTV that you have to see for yourself. Created entirely in GTA V using mods, this was an exhaustive creation with over 125 shots and fx, Rise of the Empire is their biggest Grand Theft Auto machinima. This is absolutely stunning! Visually it’s bright and crisp. The story and cinematography are engaging. The sound effects and music are spot-on. This film will get you excited just the way a Star Wars film should. You’ll be on the edge of your seat to see what happens next. Personally, I’m a fan of machinima already. I think it takes a lot of creativity and they can be so much fun to watch but this one goes above and beyond most I have seen. It’s clean, it’s realistic,…

SWTOR Season 7 Update

Eric Musco too on the official forums to  explain why it took the SWTOR Developers so damn long to release the Top 96 pvp titles for Season 7. Season 7 Update | 01.13.2017, 02:46 PM   Hey folks, Let’s talk about Season 7. We have just finished our full investigation of Season 7 and a few things have happened. All users who were found to be win-trading, hacking, botting, etc. have had their Season 7 ratings wiped out on all of their characters, they have been removed from the leaderboards, and appropriate ToS action has been levied against their account. With those actions being taken, we have gone ahead and sent the top 96 titles to the top performers of Season 7, so be sure to check your mailbox. We wanted to explain a little bit about why this process delayed the Season 7 rewards. In past seasons we started…

Star Wars Dark Forces DOS PC Game Review

Here we have a Star Wars: Dark Forces DOS PC game review. Kyle Katarn is The Original Rogue One. Forget Jyn Erso! Dark Forces is the first Star Wars FPS, one of the standout old Star Wars games from the DOS era. This is a great retro PC game and if you were lucky enough to get to play it back then, you know that there were not a lot of other games out there like this and there were none like it in the Star Wars name yet. This game definitely paved the way for the many games like it that would come after. So let’s take a look at this great video from The Game Show that reviews the game while also giving us a little blast from the past into retro PC Star Wars gaming. Get Star Wars: Dark forces for your collection right here. Transcript: In the opening…

Concept Art Revealed from Cancelled Darth Maul Video Game

Do you remember that Darth Maul video game that was being developed by Red Fly Studios a few years ago? Many fans were sad to see it put on ice after Lucas sold the Star Wars license over to Disney. Alas, it was yet another canned Star Wars games and since Darth Maul had a pretty big following among fans, the disappointment was definitely real. If you didn’t hear about this game back then, it really sounded cool. Since the game was cancelled, we have seen some concept art appear here and there, showing us what might have been. Now, conceptual artist Thomas A. Szakolczay has updated his website with even more concept art from the defunct game. “Back in 2011, I was fortunate enough to work with Lucas Arts and Red Fly Studios to help develop the look direction for a new Star Wars IP that centered around Darth…

Survivors – Star Wars Fan film

It seems like December 2016 was the month of the fan film and we have another one for you to check out. Survivors, from Cinemage is a film that gets right to the action and suspense from the first scene. You’ll see a chase and a lightsaber fight all within the first minute. It really gets your Star Wars blood pumping to find out what happened and why. Who are the survivors? What are they surviving? Who will win this battle? Honestly, it might leave more questions than answers once you watch it all but personally, I loved how it whets the appetite and makes you want to see more. I hope they keep writing, keep acting, and keep filming. There’s nothing like true Star Wars fans to capture the spirit of the franchise and that’s part of what makes these fan films so much fun to watch. Even when they’re not…

A Look Back At KOTOR 2

In the Star Wars universe, we usually find it easy to see the difference between the Dark Side and the Light Side. Lightsaber colors, clothing choices, and other factors make it clear which side a character is on. This battle for balance between the Dark and Light is part of the point of the Star Wars story. If you played KOTOR 2, however, you start to see for the first time in a Star Wars game that there is grey area. Sometimes it’s not so easy to block a character into one side of the other. KOTOR 2 is the perfect example of this. In this game, the villain is not always so easy to spot. Sometimes the lines between “good” and “bad” are blurred, or difficult to spot. This is something that adds a new, creative, and more interesting element to KOTOR 2, versus KOTOR 1. Sometimes characters are…
