Otakon 2016 Star Wars Photoshoot

There are many exciting things happening at Oktakon, one of my favorite conventions. However, the cosplayers are definitely one of my favorite parts. It’s so much fun to see all the cosplayers around the convention and to see the very creative ways people find to enact their favorite characters. It’s really the best of the best, and a ton of fun. Last year had a lot of great cosplay photoshoots, but there was one in particular that really stood out to me. I knew I just HAD to be at that one and it did not disappoint.

Battlefront Cinematic – A Tale of Two Friends

War is hard. Real life is hard. If there’s one thing we know about the Star Wars Universe, it’s that it mirrors real life in a variety of ways.

It’s no surprise then, that we see fan films come around that highlight that fact for us even more.  Here’s a really well done Battlefront Cinematic that puts us in the positive of the Stormtroopers. No matter which side you root for when you play (and watch the movies) you can still see the humanity of both sides and this cinematic highlights all of that. We love fan films, and we love cinematics that take a game like Battlefront and make it into something more. Finding a unique story, or…

Remembering Fallen MMOs: Star Wars Galaxies

Did you play Star Wars Galaxies? We’ve talked about it a lot here before because it is still one of the most popular Star Wars games to date. If you missed out on it back then, there’s still a way for you to play it now, which we will add at the end. For now, let’s take a look at all that this video has to show us about SWG. In this video below, The Positive Gamer talks about what made SWG so popular, how it was different from other games when it first came out, and how it differed from other Star Wars games up to that point. There was player-built housing, within player-built cities, and it was an entirely new concept from other games of the type. It didn’t have tons of NPCs to fill roles within the world. Instead, the expansive world of SWG had players fill these roles…
