Episode VII Update: J.J. Abrams Teases with Droid Hand

Posted by on Aug 15, 2014 in News | 0 comments

You may remember several months ago when JJ Abrams kicked off Star Wars: Force For Change, with the intent of raising money for  the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The grand prize was a trip to the set of Star Wars Episode VII and you better believe there were a lot of fans who wanted a chance to win. Slashfilm.com has an interesting update for us, as well as some details on the “droid hand” Abrams teased in the announcement.  The first video revealed a brand new creature from the world. A second video revealed the new X-Wing fighter. And now, Abrams revealed the results of the initiative and winner’s name with another excitingly cryptic photo. Is it a Episode 7 droid hand? Or perhaps Luke Skywalker’s robot hand? Check it out and read more about the Force for Change winner below.

SWTOR Segment from EA GamesCom Press Conference

Posted by on Aug 14, 2014 in bioware, ea, gamescom | 0 comments

We have an interesting update today on SWTOR from EA’s GamesCom Press Conference. The SWTOR segment touched on a few things we have not gotten updated on in some time, such as the player count. They also touch on some things that are coming soon in SWTOR (things we all known about already but that might serve to bring in some newer or returning players). From EA’s GamesCom Press Conference: The results have been remarkable. Every month, more than a million players are logging in, playing with their friends, and embarking on their own personal Star Warstm Saga. So basically, EA took almost two minutes out of their press conference today to mention SWTOR. You can see the video for yourself at IGN, but the highlights are: recap of the last 18 months reminder that it’s gone free to play updated content Galactic Starfighter new guild rewards new PvP warzones new Flashpoints and Operations Galactic Strongholds goes live next week The presentation was heightened with some...

Will Star Wars: Battlefront Be the Best Star Wars Game Ever?

Posted by on Aug 13, 2014 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

There’s a lot of talk about Star Wars: Battlefront as the game gets closer to completion. Fans are anxious for another Star Wars game and at this point, just publishing and shipping a game with a Star Wars theme would be better than how other expected Star Wars titles have worked out recently. DICE wants to do more than just make a game, however. They want to create the “best Star Wars game ever”. That’s a big undertaking, depending on who you ask. However, developer DICE has a strong vision for Battlefront and they spoke with MCV about what they wanted to do with the game. “Historically DICE hasn’t worked on licenses that are not our own,” according to Battlefield studio’s general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson. “So this is different for us. If someone came to us with another licence then we’d probably say no, but, in this case, Star Wars has a very special place in our hearts. “So when the chance to work on this game...

When Game Bugs become Permanent Features

Posted by on Aug 12, 2014 in bioware, bug, SWTOR | 0 comments

It’s happened before… a bug exists in a game and people like it so much, it becomes an intended feature. Such is not always the case with SWTOR. Remember way back when you could message someone on their main and when they logged an alt, continued messages would go to their alts? A lot of people loved the feature but others worried it never allowed you to “hide” when playing the game. Bioware later removed it, stating it was a bug but many players wished they would bring it back with a toggle feature so if you didn’t want it, it wasn’t forced on you but those who liked it could use it. Another bug discovered just a couple weeks ago that was popular was the character select screen bug. In this bug, it allowed a different view from the character select screen- one that showed the character from about the knees up and with a more detailed background.  While confirmed as unintentional, people liked it so much and spoke out on Reddit and the official...
