Concept Art Revealed from Cancelled Darth Maul Video Game

Do you remember that Darth Maul video game that was being developed by Red Fly Studios a few years ago? Many fans were sad to see it put on ice after Lucas sold the Star Wars license over to Disney.

Survivors – Star Wars Fan film

It seems like December 2016 was the month of the fan film and we have another one for you to check out. Survivors, from Cinemage is a film that gets right to the action and suspense from the first scene. You’ll see a chase and a lightsaber fight all within the first minute. It really gets your Star Wars blood pumping to find out what happened and why. Who are the survivors? What are they surviving? Who will win this battle? Honestly, it might leave more questions than answers once you watch it all but personally, I loved how it whets the appetite and makes you want to see more. I hope they keep writing, keep acting, and keep filming.

A Look Back At KOTOR 2

In the Star Wars universe, we usually find it easy to see the difference between the Dark Side and the Light Side. Lightsaber colors, clothing choices, and other factors make it clear which side a character is on. This battle for balance between the Dark and Light is part of the point of the Star Wars story. If you played KOTOR 2, however, you start to see for the first time in a Star Wars game that there is grey area. Sometimes it’s not so easy to block a character into one side of the other. KOTOR 2 is the perfect example of this. In this game, the villain is not always so easy to spot. Sometimes the lines between “good” and “bad” are blurred, or difficult to spot. This is something that adds a new, creative, and more interesting element to KOTOR 2, versus KOTOR 1. Sometimes characters are…
