There’s a new Star Wars game coming, this time to the arcades. The first Star Wars announcement to come out of New York comic-Con was the news that Bandai Namco has unveiled Star Wars: Battle Pod, an arcade game. In this game, players will sit in a simulated cockpit and be able to pilot several cool vehicles on various missions. Here is some info from the official site for the game: The game includes five stages that recreate the fiercest battle scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy. Loaded with features and unique gameplay elements, players can experience the impact of the explosions and destruction that will leave them with a sense of actually piloting and taking part in action-packed scenes from the films. Enabling the player to be surrounded by gameplay images and experiences on the dome screen, players will truly take command of the vehicles that appear in the films such as X-wings, snowspeeders, speederbikes, the Millennium Falcon and TIE Advanced.

Posted by on Oct 11, 2014 in star wars, star wars news | 0 comments

What would you think of a trilogy of Obi-Wan Kenobi films? I think I’d be interested in seeing it, in hopes they don’t mess it up and that it’s actually interesting. We talked before about the new Star Wars films being in development and how there were talks of many more Star Wars films and shows in the works. Could this rumor be of one of those? According to movie website Cinelinx, a rumor is going around about the making of three Obi-Wan movies set betweenRevenge of the Sith and A New Hope. If Disney and Lucasfilm are making such a series, it would definitely be of interest to Star Wars fans. When elaborating of what they films would be about, it was said that they would be interconnected but also able to stand alone as independent films (think like James Bond). The unnamed source of the rumor says that Lucasfilm already has the main plot details of these films laid out. One would feature Obi-Wan on Tatooine, with the other two sending him traveling about the...

Why BioWare Can’t Officially Support Fan Sites, Podcasters, Etc.

Posted by on Oct 10, 2014 in fan sites | 0 comments

Some people might be curious why Bioware never seems to show a lot of support for the fan sites and fans that work so hard to promote them. This can be very frustrating if you don’t have a solid understanding of how these things work and why. It’s very important that Bioware doesn’t show any favoritism to a particular fansite or podcast, as this could cause some serious issues. There’s also a little matter of some liability issues that could come into play. Bioware is definitely not the only company to take this very same stance. But recently, they explained the reasoning why. In a recent live-stream, Courtney and Pokket explains why Bioware cannot officially support 99% of the streamers, podcasts and fansites. Basically, the fansite agreement says they can not have ties with any site that has advertisements of any kind. Streamers have Twitch adds Youtube has preroll adds Podcasts sometimes have sponsors and request donations Websites have ads and request...
