STAR WARS: The Old Republic – Class Changes: Concealment Operative / Scrapper Scoundrel

Eric Musco just updated the community about the upcoming changes for Carnage and Combat coming in Game Update 5.4. Note: All changes below are currently in development and are subject to change before being released. Operative Concealment Acid Blade’s damage has been reduced by 27.78% Collateral Strike’s damage has been reduced by 27.68% Scoundrel Scrapper Flechette Round’s damage has been reduced by 27.78% Flying Fists’ damage has been reduced by 27.68% DevNotes: The Concealment / Scrapper discipline was dealing more DPS than intended, so we made a couple changes to shrink it down a bit. These changes allow the Concealment Operative / Scrapper Scoundrel to still deal decent burst damage while having their sustained damage output brought in line with the DPS target.

The Best Star Wars Game Never Made? – Investigating Star Wars 1313

You know how we love Star Wars games around here, and this isn’t the first time a game we were excited about has been cancelled, but Star Wars 1313 was unique in that it had a gritty, darker feel to it than any other Star Wars game to come out before it. It really spoke to an older audience and it was going to be a great 3rd person shooter, even without the Star Wars theme to it. Add that element, that you could be your own bounty hunter, and you can see why it really stood out to a certain class of fans. It was also evolved to look like Boba Fett would be the lead in this game. Either way, it was never meant to be, so we’d never see this come to life. If you want to learn more about the game that would never be, check…

Otakon 2016 Star Wars Photoshoot

There are many exciting things happening at Oktakon, one of my favorite conventions. However, the cosplayers are definitely one of my favorite parts. It’s so much fun to see all the cosplayers around the convention and to see the very creative ways people find to enact their favorite characters. It’s really the best of the best, and a ton of fun. Last year had a lot of great cosplay photoshoots, but there was one in particular that really stood out to me. I knew I just HAD to be at that one and it did not disappoint. One of my favorite parts of Otakon last year was the Star Wars photoshoot. The newest Star Wars movie had just released and people were seriously in the Star Wars spirit. There were people from near and far, young and old, dressed as their favorite characters from the Star Wars Universe and it…

Battlefront Cinematic – A Tale of Two Friends

War is hard. Real life is hard. If there’s one thing we know about the Star Wars Universe, it’s that it mirrors real life in a variety of ways. Perhaps that is one reason so many people can relate to it. We see parts of ourselves in the characters and parts of our own worlds in the Star Wars Universe. It’s no surprise then, that we see fan films come around that highlight that fact for us even more.  Here’s a really well done Battlefront Cinematic that puts us in the positive of the Stormtroopers. No matter which side you root for when you play (and watch the movies) you can still see the humanity of both sides and this cinematic highlights all of that. We love fan films, and we love cinematics that take a game like Battlefront and make it into something more. Finding a unique story, or…
