Bespin Is Finally Unlocked in Star Wars: Uprising

Ever since Star Wars: Uprising was released on Android and iOS electronics around two months ago, it’s certainly gotten a loyal fan base of people who just want to free the Galaxy from Imperial enslavement.

George Lucas Explains Why He Doesn’t Want to Direct Any More ‘Star Wars’ Movies

A very long time ago, George Lucas was just an experimental filmmaker. However, once Star Wars came along, it took over Hollywood and Lucas’ life. The filmmaker says there will be no more and he is done. “You go to make a movie and all you do is get criticized,” Lucas told Vanity Fair. “People try to make decisions about what you’re going to do before you do it. It’s not much fun. You can’t experiment. You have to do it a certain way.” He went into more detail on his remarks to CBS News. “The issue was ultimately, they looked at the stories, and they said, ‘We want to make something for the fans,’ ” Lucas said, presumably referring to Disney, which purchased Lucasfilm — including the “Star Wars” franchise — in 2012.”People don’t actually realize it’s actually a soap opera, and it’s all about family problems; it’s not…

The ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ Review Situation Is More Than A Little Bizarre

EA has had a “review event” for Star Wars: Battlefront. During this there were outlets invited to play the game before the launch on servers designed to simulate live environments. The review for impressions of the gameplay from the event that was held lands on the day of the games launch. Neither one of these things are too much out of the ordinary. Review events aren’t actually the best things ever, however, for a game that is nearly entirely based on multiplayer, we understand playing it the way it should be played, with fully populated servers and all. However the problem is that the embargo coming after the event doesn’t make any sense. Why, you may ask? Because of EA Access. Anybody who signs up for EA Access has the ability to play the entire game of Star Wars:  Battlefront for 10 hours. You can go through all ten of…

‘Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company’ Review: The Story The Game Forgot

If you’re reading this review, then we are sure that you are impatiently waiting until you are able to play Star Wars: Battlefront on your console or PC. You might also be aware that while Battlefront looks like an online multiplayers dream, the game will not have much of a story. Instead of going the traditional route where creators weave a classic Star Wars story into an amazing game, Battlefront is happy enough with its multiplayer hook and no original plot or characters to speak of. Well that may not be entirely true, because Battlefront does have an actual story, it’s just actually playable. In the new book, Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company, the author, Alexander Freed, gives life to the war that is happening between the Empire and the Rebellion by focusing on the 61st Mobile Infantry unit, while it battles for freedom against Stormtroopers, Darth Vader, and Star…
