Replay 300 – Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II

Game Informer just recently kicked off a limited series called replay 300. In this series, they play select games from their Top 300 list, regardless of their history on Replay. The first episode was Super Metroid, which was a bit nostalgic for me as well, but it was the second week that the magic really happened. For week 2 of Replay 300, they hit a different corner of space in Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. This was one of the first Star Wars games I ever played. It was also one of the first that ever got lightsabers right (although it’s debatable in the community). They brought Dark Jedi/ dark forces to the game and this wasn’t really done before either. So join Andy, Reiner, Joe, Tack and Leo as we take look back at the pulse-pounding gameplay and beautiful FMV cutscenes of a now twenty-year-old Star Wars game….

Bastila Shan: A Star Wars Story

Here’s another great Star Wars Story video from The Scoundrel’s Cantina. I’m a huge fan of Bastila Shan so I was actually really excited to see what they were going to do with this one. It was a pleasant watch, like all of their Star Wars Story videos. It’s about five minutes long, so really a short watch but they pack a lot of info in that five minutes. Grab a snack and give it a watch! Not familiar with Bastila? Bastila Shan was a Human female who served as a Jedi Padawan during the Jedi Civil War. Born on the planet Talravin to Helena Shan and a treasure hunter, her mother gave her up to the Jedi Order, believing that their lifestyle of travel and exertions was not suitable for her daughter. Bastila Shan: A Star Wars Story!  From The Scoundrel’s Cantina: “In this video we are mixing both the Expanded Universe and the “Official” Star Wars Canon. This is the way we look…

Mr. Plinkett’s The Star Wars Awakens Review

In the mood for a cynical review? Are you not feeling as enchanted with the new Star Wars movies as everyone else seems to be? Here’s an oldie you may have missed – or maybe you didn’t, but it never hurts to give it another watch. It’s long, so pop some popcorn or find your favorite snacks and let’s settle in for some very opinionated Star Wars chat. You know we love Star Wars here. I’ve loved Star Wars since my earliest memory and writing for this site for so many years has been one of my greatest pleasures. That said, there are still things that can annoy me about the franchise. Can you relate? I’m not a 100% unconditional fangirl. This is even truer since Disney took over and the franchise we grew up loving started living by the Mouse’s rules. Still, anything that brings more Star Wars into our…

THE GREY JEDI : A STAR WARS STORY (Fan Film)

You guys know how I feel about fan films. I’ve said many times before that some of these fan films are just as good (or better in some ways) than a lot of the professional films out there. This is one that I can say with confidence is on that list. This is an absolutely amazing fan film! My only complaint is that it’s so short. I wanted to see more. I truly hope that this crew continues making more films because I’ll be first in line to get to see them. If you want to check out The Grey Jedi yourself, it’s shorter than 10 minutes so it won’t take up a lot of your day. It’s something you can do on a quick break even. So give it a watch! You’ll be so glad you did. See the short film here:  Prologue : As the War of…

X-Wing Alliance Mod Project from Alaska Works

I just had to make a post today to show you this really cool project we came across. It’s not exactly new, but it’s not getting the attention it really deserves, so you may not have heard about it. This is a very impressive shader mod project with demo videos for what was one of the best Star Wars games ever made. X-Wing Alliance! The last and arguably ultimate Star Wars space combat simulator. Although it was released in 1999, several mods are available that freshen up the appearance while retaining the surprisingly deep gameplay. If you haven’t seen it yet, but you loved X-Wing Alliance, I highly recommend you head over and check it out. It’s really awesome and it will bring a big nostalgic feel as well. They have loads of information on their website here, including instructions for using the mod, but there are also some videos…

Cancelled Star Wars Battlefront IV Concept Art

Are you wondering about the game that might have been? Every time a Star Wars game is canceled, we find ourselves curious about what it would have looked like. Sometimes, we get lucky enough to see this for ourselves. As is the case with the canceled Star Wars Battlefront 4 – which was already in the planning stages when they shut down Free Radical’s Battlefront 3 project. And it’s really too bad this game would never come to be because the concept images show a very interesting approach to the project. This is likely something a lot of fans would have really enjoyed. It’s too bad we never got the chance to find out. This gallery of concept images reveals a strikingly different approach – a ‘what if?’ scenario where the events of the Star Wars prequels would play out differently. Anakin would have killed Yoda and murdered Padmé, which…

How Powerful Was Darth Malgus?

When it comes to all the Darth of the Sith, Vader is probably the most well known. But who is the most powerful? You might be hard pressed to find a common answer. Malgus is definitely one that you will find on every list, however. You might see Darth Malek on that list as well, but usually it is Malgus who tops the list. Darth Malgus was a human male Sith Lord, of the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War. His name at birth was Veradun and he was raised by his adoptive father. He showed a sensitivity to the Force at a young age, but the dark will came out very young in him as well. He killed a Twi’lek servant on his father’s estate and later was sent to the Sith Academy. Check out this video below to learn more about Darth Malgus and just how powerful…
