While the status of Star Wars: Battlefront III is not currently known, we don’t really expect any news about a fourth SW Battlefront game in the future. Via Unseen 64...

Old Star Wars PSAs About Drunk Driving and Smoking

Posted by on Jul 29, 2015 in Rarities | 0 comments

  Here is an old Star Wars Rarity. Back in 1979, creator George Lucas was still in the process of learning how to deal with the unexpected success of Star Wars and the huge incoming of merchandising and marketing opportunities that its popularity brought with it. The majority of the products from this time period are very special, such as early toys that were created by Kenner are now collectors’ items. However, the series of public service announcements have mainly been forgotten. There is a quick clip that was commissioned by the United States Department of Transportation and it features Star Wars characters carousing in the spaceport’s bar. When a Talz patron is way too drunk to fly back home, a responsible Duros offers the friend a ride home to make sure he makes it alive, while not hurting others in space. At the end you can see the copyright mark of Black Falcon, Ltd., which was the subsidiary of Lucasfilm that was dealing with merchandising. Before the drunk driving PSA...

BioWare published a new story blog on the swtor website details Thexan and Arcann. These a the two guys from the Fallen Empire trailer. Check it out below: Brothers Today, I watched my face burn. The skin cracked and curled as fire seared away the moisture. Charred flesh retreated from the heat and shriveled into a huddled black mass. One blue eye, identical to my own, held me in place–made me watch. In an instant, it was the face of a stranger. And we were no longer twins. The memory tugged at my hand, pulled it to my cheek. I was startled by the smoothness that met the pads of my fingertips. My brother’s phantom grip still clutched my arm. I felt the bones beneath his skin reach out, try to escape the pain, and fail. Arcann had...

Star Wars as 17th-century Japanese Prints

Posted by on Jul 27, 2015 in Fan stuff, star wars | 0 comments

Maybe it’s because I am such a huge fan of art and Star Wars (of course) but I really love this project I came across from a Japanese crowdfunding site, Makuake. The project is for traditional woodblock prints of the original George Lucas Star Wars characters and the project far exceeded its goal. While they do not come cheap (a single print costs 54,000 yen/$434, with a set of three going for 162,000 yen/$1,303) they are worth every penny. The craftsmanship, art and patience that goes into each beautiful piece is amazing. Most Star Wars fans will know that George Lucas was influenced by the Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa and that Kurosawa’s 1958 period adventure The Hidden Fortress often cited as a direct inspiration for...

Posted by on Jul 27, 2015 in Community Cantina Tour, pax | 0 comments

The Seattle Cantina Tour  has been canceled, as BioWare needs to spend all it energy on getting Star Wars: The old Republic Fallen Empire ready. Instead the team will do a livestream with some gameplay of a chapter of the upcoming expansion.   PAX Cantina – Important Update: Revised Plan | 07.27.2015, 08:22 AM Hey folks, We wanted to give you an update on a change of plans around our Seattle Cantina, planned to happen around PAX Prime. As we have been looking at our schedule, we feel that as we are just a few short months from Fallen Empire’s launch, it is really important that we focus our resources internally. Our goal is to deliver a AAA-quality expansion and we need to allow the team to put their focus on development priorities,...

Fanmade ‘Star Wars’ Oculus Rift Game Trailer

Posted by on Jul 27, 2015 in other starwars games | 0 comments

A company named Hammerhead VR has created a trailer for Star Wars VR, a game made for the Oculus Rift. Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset that is going to change the way we play video games in the future. The trailer was made with the Unreal Engine 4 and it looks great, even though it’s not the most complex footage ever made. The first-person Star Wars experience is really what shines in this cool project. No matter if you are going up against Darth Vader in the carbon freezing chamber or leading the battle on the first Death Star, experiencing the excitement and action of Star Wars in a virtual reality environment would be amazing. The trailer does not show much activity with the characters but it was probably difficult to make the...

Check Out the ‘Star Wars: Uprising’ Gameplay Trailer Kabam Just Released

Posted by on Jul 25, 2015 in other starwars games | 0 comments

You know how we love our Star Wars games around here. We know you love them too and that’s why we work to bring you the latest and greatest if it’s related to Star Wars gaming. That said, we were excited to hear about a new game that tied into the new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Is anyone really surprised about this, either? Of course they are going to try to tie in everything and anything, with the popularity of the movies and all that. What was less exciting was the news that this would be a mobile game only. I like mobile games, don’t get me wrong, but I really wanted to see something bigger and better from this. Still, it’s being made by Kabam and this pretty much guarantees two things: It will be worth...

The 3.3 Drinking Game Celebration!

Posted by on Jul 25, 2015 in patch 3.3, swtor fun | 0 comments

Hey, what fun would a new patch be if we didn’t turn it into a drinking game (adults only)? Here we have a lovely little way to enjoy 3.3 and celebrate with inebriated style! Every new patch, especially an update that brings new classes or other physical features to the game, is going to also bring the hordes of wanting to try the new class, the new zone, etc. Every MMORPGer knows this (and often dreads it on update day). So why not turn it into a little fun or have a few laughs from it? In all seriousness, if you drink, please drink...

DICE’s audio team has been very lucky with the large amount of knowledge sharing and support that they have been given from Skywalker Sound.
