Star Wars Episode IX – Release Date & More

December 2018 held a certain significance, I’m sure the same can be said for many people for many reasons, however, for fans of the Star Wars movie saga it became the first time in the past four years without a new Star Wars movie to enthuse about, see, and discuss. Initially scheduled for a May 24 release, the hotly anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX denotes the end of a trilogy; a new chapter which began with JJ Abrahams’ December 17, 2015 release of The Force Awakens, followed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Not part of the trilogy), with Episode 8 – The Last Jedi having relayed the second part of the adventure on December 14, 2017, and the trilogy will now come to a close with the bumped back, more traditional Christmas release window of Episode IX on December 20, 2019. The news gives Star Wars fans something…

Series of EA Project Cancellations Leaves Gamers Fuming as it Under Delivers on Disney’s Star Wars Gaming Franchise

In the latest breaking news involving EA, the company failed to dispel strong rumours from reputable sources, rumours which proclaimed the cancellation of the promised, long awaited and much anticipated, future release of the next single player title meant to continue the massively popular Star Wars saga. Initially developed under the codename Ragtag which aimed at creating a linear gameplay adventure. However, a mid-2017 reimagining refocused the teams to instead develop an open world environment re-focused on delivering a broader player experience. Ironically this mid-2017 reimagining seemingly is possibly also the reason for the project’s death, since developing “a broader experience” would apparently have required too long a build period, driving costs up. The most common fan response to that would be somewhere along the lines of “come-on EA, Bethesda managed to create just such a series of open world games with each episode of The Elder Scrolls series and…

Have Fun, be Happy

Even though its only early 2019 we are seeing some awesome indie games already, those games created by independent developers who do not have the backing of any major corporate publisher. You would think would be a big drawback but in fact, with some publishers becoming unwilling to take the chance on a creative and unique idea, very many of them stay focused on the already established franchises looking to the dollar instead. Indie games don’t have this problem, and many of them over the last few years have actually managed to surpass their AAA competition both in the terms of the game being valued and also in the quality of the game. The notion that indie games are somewhat inferior because of the low budget is simply untrue, and to ignore the indie games would be denying a whole lot of great gaming action. Take Hyper Light Drifter by…

Top 10 Sith Warrior Armors in SWTOR!

I have been playing SWTOR since release and writing about it here since we first found out it was being made. I’ve been following the game, the development, the characters and more for over 8 years now. It’s been a wild ride and I love to see where the game has come so far. I am also particularly fond of this new revival of Star Wars in general in pop culture. It’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan! On that topic, it’s a great time for looking at what other Star Wars fans are doing and one of my favorite SWTOR YouTubers has a series of videos about armor sets found in the game. Today I am going to share her video about Sith Warrior armor. If you haven’t seen it yet, I think you’ll really enjoy it. Sith Warrior is a fun class to play and…
