But other times, all that fancy stuff gets in the way of an otherwise good game. Have you ever wanted to play a game so bad but then you try it and all the shiny stuff they wanted to cram in there took away from the actual gameplay and story? Or maybe you couldn’t even play it on your system because they wanted to go crazy with graphics and other elements? There is something to be said about keeping it simple. Sometimes the most basic game can be the best game. That’s what people are saying about Star Wars Commando right now.

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: update on Anakin’s performance

The Community Manager over at Star Wars: Galaxy of hereoes posted a small update on Anakin’s performance in the game. Some players think he is way to powerfull. Here is the news: April 25, 2019 6:14PM edited April 25 “Your focus determines your reality.” Hey Holotable Heroes, I wanted to give a quick update on our announcement last Friday that we were looking into Anakin’s performance and whether or not he is too powerful, particularly where we want him to sit in the meta versus some specific teams like Darth Malak/Darth Revan. Our initial investigation has yielded the following results: Since we released Jedi Knight Anakin’s rework, only 8,000 players have used Jedi Knight Anakin under a Jedi Knight Revan lead to fight against Darth Revan & Darth Malak. That represents less than 1% of the total battles fought by the entire community during this window. Of these battles, JKA is…

The trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order just recently came out and now we’re seeing it everywhere! If you’ve missed it, check out below: You’re going to see ads for the game everywhere online. You’re going to start seeing the ads in stores, and of course in game stores and gaming websites. We are literally going to be BLOWN UP about Jedi: Fallen Order.

Here is a list of some of the upcoming events for April.DISCLAIMER: ALL DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Daily Login Character for April: B2 Super Battledroid Tinfoil hat time: the return of JKR seems a bit quick. What if, perhaps, they’re using it to hide a legendary event for Malak?

LucasFilm Games is Hiring

Lucasfilm is looking to get back into the games industry. They have posted a list of jobs at Disney Careers. Many of these are positions for Lucasfilm Games. There are open positions for: ProducerBrand Art Coordinator Brand Marketing CoordinatorAssistant ProducerAssociate Brand Art DirectorAssociate Brand Marketing ManagerAssistant Producer – Asia Could this mean a revival of LucasArts? It’s too early to tell right now because it seems like it’s just going to be LucasFilm for games under the existing EA contract. It’s actually not likely that it’s a revival of LucasArts we we knew it before. Most likely, it’s something else. These are publisher positions, not developer positions, so they are not doing internal games. Instead, they are working on projects already in the EA/Disney umbrella. Either way, it’s interesting. And if you’re looking for a position in the industry, this could be a great open door for you. I definitely…
