Versus Series | Revan vs Galen Marek: Video

Posted by on Aug 28, 2015 in Revan, video | 0 comments

  The Balance of the Force. Who is the true master of the light and dark? That is a very good question for Star Wars fans everywhere and this versus video attempts to answer that, complete with some background on each character and a timeline of events of progression. This Versus video, just over 30 minutes runtime, explains the background of Revan and Marek, including how they came into power, how they changed over time and other life and background info. It’s a good recap too for those who might not remember (or just don’t know) the full stories of each. As we’ve said before about these versus videos, this is just one person’s interpretation of the outcome of the matchup.   It’s quite common that we see fans squabble over this and honestly, it’s part of the fun for me. Seeing how different fans interpret the potential faceoff and who they think will win is fun for me. So if you have not seen it yet, here’s the video and you can see for yourself what happens and if you agree with the...

Star Wars Battlefront Classes in LEGO Form

Posted by on Aug 27, 2015 in lego star wars, Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

Okay, regular readers know what a big LEGO fan I am. There are few things I love more than LEGO Star Wars so I found this pretty cool and had to share it with you. You can see from the images below that another fan created some Star Wars Battlefront classes out of minifigs. They’re pretty spot on with what the real classes would look like and the builder had a fine eye for detail when it comes to getting these right. battle front classes Here we have seven images that depict the Star Wars Battlefront classes. There’s the Clone Trooper, Heavy Trooper, Sharpshooter, Engineer, Clone Commander, and Jet Trooper. The Jet Trooper’s gun isn’t exactly spot on since it should be a little bit wider but we think he did awesome with what he had to work with. You could probably also do Rebels and Stormtroopers if you wanted and had all the parts and mini figurines to work it out. You might have to get creative with certain parts or even print some out and use paper construction to add pieces (this is a little trick my kids like to do) but it could definitely work. What figures would you like to see from Star Wars LEGO. If LEGO did an official Battlefront set, would you buy it? If you’re a combined Star Wars and LEGO fan like me, do you use your sets solely for display or do you play with them too? Are you more into the building process or the completed look once...

Do You Save Your Game Boxes?

Posted by on Aug 26, 2015 in SWTOR | 0 comments

A player posted this on Imgur and got me thinking about something:   Do you still have your original SWTOR case? I very clearly remember the countdown for the game. Some of you will know already that we spent years here writing about SWTOR even before the launch so it was a very exciting time to finally have the game coming out. Looking back on that game box image makes me think of those early days and the anticipation, combined with our excitement to finally be playing the game. It also brings up some thoughts about game boxes in general. The topic of SWTOR game cases/boxes reminds me of a conversation I was having with a good friend recently. We were reminiscing on how we always saved our video game boxes back in the day. I had Collector’s Editions of everything I played when it was offered and I often kept the boxes on a shelf in my office along with the items that came with it. You would often get an in-game item along with a figurine, cards or posters, or some other real life items that showed you had purchased the CE. And it was cool! Sure, you had to pay more but you got something awesome with it and you could prove what a true fan you were. Hardcore collectors might have years’ worth of cases, boxes, and memorabilia of their favorite games. You could easily create an awesome “gamer cave” room full of your favorite stuff. I now have over 300 games on my Steam account and I do admit that I love the ease with which we can get games these days. I also like that digital downloads are cheaper, there are often awesome sales and I can buy complete editions or series’ without much hassle or cost. That said, I still often miss the old-school appeal of boxes, especially Collector’s Editions, and having the feel of something tangible in your hands. I still have some of my old collector’s boxes but not nearly what I would have if this trend was still as popular and digital downloads had not taken over the industry. So what about you? Still have your SWTOR box? Do you collect game cases and boxes or other...

Jar Jar Binks Inspired by Goofy, According to George Lucas

Posted by on Aug 24, 2015 in star wars, star wars news | 0 comments

Jar Jar Binks just might be one of the most hated Star Wars characters ever. Honestly, I’m not sure why. I really didn’t think he was that bad. Unlike many who seem to have been annoyed greatly by the character, I found him a bit charming. (I know, I know… don’t shoot me.) When George Lucas was making Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999), he famously said, “Jar Jar’s the key to all this, if we get Jar Jar working. ‘Cause he’s a funnier character than we’ve ever had in the movies.” That really didn’t work out so well for him since Binks ended up becoming one of the most hated movie characters ever. That doesn’t seem to sway Lucas very much, as he still loves Jar Jar At the recent Disney D3 Expo, Lucas explained how he feels about Binks, why he loves the character and how he was inspired by Goofy. “I can’t even begin to tell you how much of an influence Disney has had on me,” Lucas said. “I will say one secret that nobody knows; not many people realize that Goofy was the inspiration for Jar Jar Binks,” Lucas said. “I know that you will look at him differently now. It’s pretty obvious, actually, but, um, I love Goofy and I love Jar Jar.” A lot of people are probably shaking their heads in disbelief or disagreement but it’s still nice to hear from Lucas how he feels and why he isn’t swayed by the fact that so many people really hate Jar Jar. So what do you think? Love Jar Jar? Hate him? Did this explanation from Lucas change how you view Jar Jar?...
