Posted by on Aug 20, 2014 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

In addition to the usual game modes of most Battlefront games, some fans are looking for some new games modes with a Star Wars theme for the newest installment of Star Wars: Battlefront. Tom from Battlefront News created a great video with his ideas for potential game modes. We have some Wookiee love, a Bounty Hunter mode and of course, Armada. He explains each game mode, how it works and how it would be played, complete with the objectives breakdown.

Game Update 2.9 Known Issues

Posted by on Aug 19, 2014 in bug, Patch 2.9 | 0 comments

With a new gameupdate comes new bugs to the game. Here is a list of the known issues so far. Luckily there are no game-breaking bugs a this time. Players do not receive double Prestige on previously placed items after conquering a planet. Decorations can get bugged if the layout is switched while a Decoration is present. Workaround: If you find you have two Decorations occupying the same area, leave the Stronghold and then re-enter. A guild will still be displayed in the Leaderboards if it is disbanded while controlling a planet. Emissive effects on Decorations are not rendered in the Preview Panel. Guild names are not updated on the Leaderboard if they are changed during a Conquest event. Companions are missing the Mission Icon above...

Star Wars: Episode VII Rumors and Leaks

Posted by on Aug 18, 2014 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Following up on Elrik post, I wanted to make a run down on all the newest rumors on Star Wars: Episode 7. Could there be a spy behind the scenes of Star Wars Episode VII? Or maybe some of these leaks were done on purpose? The Star Wars franchise is notorious for being tight-lipped about developments and productions but recently there has been a surge of photos leaked out from the set of the new film leaking concept art and props. Disney and Lucasfilm did not comment on the leak and whether or not the photos are legit (which is to be expected). So for now we have to treat this like a rumor but it’s a very interesting rumor indeed. Here are some of the things being leaked that has people talking: New Stormtrooper helmets - Indie...

Star Wars Episode VII villains may have just been revealed…and their descriptions sound very familiar!

Posted by on Aug 18, 2014 in Sith Inquisitor, Star Wars: Episode VII, SWTOR | 0 comments

  According to an article that appeared on, Star Wars Episode VII villains may have just been revealed. Even though the website quotes other sources, we couldn’t help notice the similarity of the rumored villains with some of the elements we see from SWToR. Needless to say, these rumors have not been confirmed so they should be taken with a grain of salt. IO9 quotes “Latino review” in stating that the main villains of the upcoming Star Wars movie are the Sith Inquisitors who are the defenders of the Sith Order. The movie will tie Darth Vader with the Inquisitors and highlight their relationship to the former. Obviously, the Sith Inquisitor is a very familiar figure in the SWToR universe with a very...

MMO Speak- Do You Know Your Lingo?

Posted by on Aug 17, 2014 in comic | 0 comments

It’s an interesting topic… one we’ve actually mentioned here before but one that we sometimes forget about. Online games have their own lingo. We can break that down even more and say MMORPGs have their own speak and SWTOR has its own that is specific to it. Someone who is very new to the game or new to the work of online gaming would have a hard time knowing what the heck we’re talking about. In fact, some have said that gamer jargon sounds like a foreign language to the untrained ear. Can you imagine it? All the talk about “trash” and “DPS” and doing “FPs”? People are likely to look at you like you’re crazy. But in the gamer world, we know just what these things mean (or...
