Revenge of Revan Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II Mod

Posted by on May 24, 2015 in Knights of the Old Republic, Kotor, other starwars games | 0 comments

Here’s something really cool that’s ready (in beta) for you to download now and check it out. RevengeofRevan.com Developer Blog asks, “Can a mod be created that won’t disrupt KOTOR canon and still allow players to continue their stories from KOTOR1 and KOTOR2? Ever since the MMO was announced along with the Revan book, this has been on my mind. The short answer is: yes, it can be done. But the next part is, how you can do this without putting yourself in a corner and hurting your creative freedom?” Revenge of Revan (RoR) does exactlly that. It will allow fans to continue their story based on the choices they make in the last two games so they can continue while still fitting the KoTOR canon. Even with the non-strict canon choice the story for the mod will still fit nicely between KOTOR2 and SWTOR in the large grand scheme of events, but finer details will be different. The developer explains more here: For those who want to define their experience based on...

Versus Series Darth Malak VS Darth Vader

Posted by on May 22, 2015 in video | 0 comments

Here we have another great episode of the versus series: Darth Malak VS Darth Vader It’s a Darth vs Darth battle. This should be interesting… You know how we love these videos. They are a lot of fun for fans and even if we don’t agree on the outcome, or what it should be, it can be a lot of fun to watch. So here we go for this one: If you have seen these versus videos before, you know that they don’t always end the way we wish and sometimes that is part of the fun. In fact, some fans have even complained that they are biased but wouldn’t that kind of make logical sense too? I mean, the person creating the video is going to give it the outcome they think is most likely to happen. Yes, it will be based in lore...

STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT LEAKED INFO. CLOSED ALPHA, NEW 40-PLAYER GAME MODE & AI CONTROLLED AT-AT

Posted by on May 22, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

I got in contact with an insider who got to play EA’s upcoming game Star Wars: Battlefront, and we got some nice or not so nice info from his play session. I couldn’t get a screenshot or an unreleased asset from the game to back this leak, so take it however you want. Keep in mind that things might drastically change nearing release as these pieces of info are coming from a really early build of the game. It was said that a closed alpha test was done directly after the game’s second reveal at the Star Wars Celebration. This close alpha test was only done for a few EA employees and it ran for a week. This makes one believe that there will be a public alpha test held in Q3 2015 if they did decide to have one, and also a public beta test...

During a recent interviews that was published in OXM and was reported by Gamesradar, the design director Niklas Fegraeus states that players will be able to choose the equipment they would like to use instead of only given a few choices.

What this enables is two friends always purchasing different unlocks in order to put together their resources.
