KOTOR ULTIMATE Taris Upper City!! Kotor Mod Showcase

Xuul has a new episode of the KOTOR mod showcase and we think you will really like it. It’s great to see that players are still supporting the KOTOR community, especially so many years after the game has been out. When many games would just die off, the fans have kept KOTOR alive and well. Mods are one way that this happens, since it brings new content and experience to the game, no matter how old it is and despite the fact that the original publisher is no longer updating the game. In this video, Xuul goes over another module from the ULTIMATE 2.0 series. This module covers the Taris Upper City. It’s the new series of the KOTOR texture pack and it keeps a close artistic feel and look of the original. Basically, it’s like the original but updated to look better and have more detail. It’s shinier and sharper but it…

McDonald’s Channels the Dark Side with Imperial-Inspired Uniforms

We bet whoever designed the new McDonald’s uniforms wasn’t using Star Wars as inspiration but good luck trying to tell the Internet that, now that the video and pics have been revealed. McDonald’s tweeted a video of how their uniforms have changed over the years and honestly, the newest design is the best of the bunch. That said, the internet couldn’t help having some fun trolling the fast food restaurant train when they realized the new grey uniforms bear a striking resemblance to the same uniform worn by a certain set of bad guys in the Star Wars franchise. Take a look and see if it jumps out to you like it did so many others on the Internet. Check out how our uniforms have changed over the years to keep our teams looking and feeling their best! #TBT pic.twitter.com/pCcRwaM6B4 — McDonald’s (@McDonalds) April 20, 2017 If you watch to…

Could Jar Jar Binks Be Playable Character in Star Wars Battlefront 2?

And if he was, would anyone actually want to play him? Once crowned the most hated Star Wars character of all time, Jar Jar Binks has a rich history. While many didn’t see him as the great, lovable character that Lucas envisioned, there are still fans out there. Would you want to play him in Battlefront 2? Last week there was a lot of information finally released about the game, including a launch date for November this year. The developers finally started dishing out more details that fans have been waiting on for some time. Among the info about the story and overall gameplay, they also said they weren’t ruling out Jar Jar as a potential playable character. Last week at Star Wars Celebration, the game saw its official reveal, along with a release date. They also teased some original trilogy characters, as well as some of the new ones…

Why Jedi Have To Be Trained So Young

Why must Jedi initiates be taken away from their parents to be trained as Jedi at such a young age? We explain why this is and look at examples of when this did not occur and left students destined down a path of darkness. We also look at good examples when students who joined the order much later excelled in their duties as Jedi knights. Have you ever noticed how Jedi are always really young when they were trained? Many were taken from their homes and their families when they were just young children. So what is the reason for this? Some people think it’s because they want to get the Jedi before they love. This isn’t exactly the truth. While it’s true that they want to get them before they form attachments, this doesn’t mean they don’t want them to love. Love is okay – and even encouraged. But…

KOTOR M4-78 A History: The M4-78 that could have been

KOTOR has long been ranked as one of the best Star Wars games ever made. If you were a fan, then we don’t have to explain why. Even if you never played it yourself, you’ve had to have heard about it here and there. We post about the KOTOR series often here on the site and there is still content and info coming out about it, despite its age, because that’s how much the Star Wars community loves it. So with that in mind, here’s another cool video we found with some useful information in it. It’s a bit long but it definitely has some interesting information about this subject. It’s part of a series from Xuul so you can follow their channel for more and to keep up with anything new they put out. Here’s an interesting video about the M4-78. It covers a history of the project and also why…

Star Wars the Force Unleashed 3 Prototype Footage

Here is some great footage of Star Wars the Force Unleashed 3 from a prototype. Credit goes to Corra_Ashu for uploading the original footage although we are not sure where that person originally got it either. It’s still pretty cool to look at and it really gives us an idea of what this game could have been. As we’ve written about plenty of times here, the Star Wars universe is no stranger to cancelled projects, especially when it comes to games. We have seen so many cancelled Star Wars games, it’s almost difficult to count. One project that was unfortunately killed was the third installment of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. This is a game that fans of the series were definitely looking forward to so it was a bit letdown when they announced it was cancelled. Really, it never even got as far off the ground as some other cancelled…

Battlefront II Will Be a Better Game but Possible Financial Disappointment

If you’re like the rest of us, you might be anxiously awaiting Battlefront II. The thing is, we don’t really know very much about it. That’s how they generally do these games. Anything Star Wars, especially since the new films have started production, is kept under lock and key for the most part, until it’s ready for release. That leaves a lot of open doors for speculation and Mathew Falvai of a90skid.com has some theories on what will happen with Battlefront II. In this post, he describes why he thinks it will be a better game but an overall financial disappointment. “My prediction is that gamers will do what they traditionally do and judge a game based on their last experience. The new Battlefront promises more robust single-player content, and an actual campaign, fixing two of the major issues. With the foundation of a jaw-droppingly beautiful engine and reusable assets already in place, DICE…

Is BioWare Rebooting KOTOR?

There are few Star Wars games (if any) acclaimed as high as KOTOR. Knights of the Old Republic is a huge favorite in the Star Wars gaming scene and for good reason. It was an excellent game, beautifully designed, with a wonderful story. Players have been wanting a new KOTOR game for a long time now. We hear of a rumor that says BioWare might actually be working on exactly that! The rumor originates with gaming journalist Liam Robertson, who discussed the topic recently on his Patreon page. He doesn’t cite his sources which makes this hearsay but it’s an interesting enough rumor that we’ll go ahead and pass it on to you. Again, this is JUST rumor at this point and we can’t do more than speculate but with how much everyone wants to see a new KOTOR game, it can be fun to speculate that this rumor is true. Here’s…

Get Your Hands on Battlefront II at EA PLAY

If you’re excited for Battlefront II and want the chance to try it out for yourself, it’s a good idea to be at EA PLAY. So if you’re headed there in June, you’re going to get another extra surprise. In addition to allowing you to play the game, you will also get to see more details about it. This also means those of us at home will hopefully get to learn more about the game. In a recent post detailing that tickets will be bookable for EA PLAY starting April 20, EA revealed that attendees “will get hands on” with the next Battlefront game. If that’s not reason enough for many to buy a ticket, I don’t know what is. EA PLAY is happening from June 10th to June 12th at The Hollywood Palladium in California. This is the second year in a row that EA has had this Pre-E3 event…

A History of Cancelled Star Wars Games

“Star Wars is one of the most popular settings in all of video games, so it’s no surprise that its owners are continually looking to create new bestselling games in the galaxy far, far away. But for every smash-hit like the Jedi Knight series, Battlefront, and Knights of the Old Republic, there are several games that never see the light of day. Games are cancelled for any of a number of reasons. But whether it’s the publisher canning the game late in development or an early concept that never gets fleshed out, it’s always disappointing to see games with huge potential left on the cutting room floor.” How many times have we written about a cancelled Star Wars game here? Even worse is when we tell you about a new game in the making that we’re really excited for, only to find out later, it’s been cut. We hate bringing…
