Harrison Ford Makes His Video Game Debut

At 73 years old, Harrison Ford is now a video game star. According to People magazine, the 73-year old actor recorded original dialogue featured in the game, which allows fans to play out the storylines from the famous film. If you’re a fan of Han Solo and The Force Awakens, you’re going to love this. Many of us who are video game fans know how it can be disappointing when a movie-based video game cannot get the same voice actor to play an iconic part. With a role like Han Solo, anyone other than Ford just wouldn’t cut it. Here’s a trailer from the Daily Mail if you want to see for yourself: Harrison Ford makes his appearance in the new popular LEGO game with his longtime pal and sidekick, Chewbacca. If you have not played the game yet, it closely follows the story from the film The Force Awakens so major spoilers if you haven’t…

‘Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Tops UK Sales Charts

Just how well is Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens doing since its release? Well, pretty darn good. It’s even topping the charts in the UK. Gamespot is reporting that for it’s debut week, which ended July 2nd, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens shot to the top of the United Kingdom’s sale charts. It came in over big titles such as Overwatch, Doom, and FIFA 16. Stats also show that it is the fourth largest Lego video game launch ever. It comes in behind Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Marvel Superheroes and Lego Batman. So these are some pretty awesome stats for the game already. It’s been out about a week and seems to be performing well globally. I am a fan of the Lego series of games and of course being a Star Wars fan, I also like the Lego Star Wars series. As soon as I knew they were making a…

You Can Play J.J. Abrams in ‘Lego Star Wars Awakens’

Here’s one more fun fact about LEGO Star Wars Awakens: You can play J.J. Abrams in the game. Seriously. This is a thing. We’ll just let that sink in for a minute. So the series is known for making silly games but here is one we didn’t see coming. Are there people (kids even) out there playing this game who just really, really wanted to play as their favorite movie director? My guess is it was really just a way to recognize Abrams for his hard work and great job on the latest film. Honestly, it’s a fun little way to honor the director in a fun little game based on the very popular movie. Actually, they put Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy in the game as LEGO figures so it definitely seems like a nod to the people who helped make The Force Awakens happen. And honestly, even if the kiddies don’t get it,…

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens Coming This Summer

If you’re a fan of the LEGO Star Wars series like me, then you’re going to love this info that was recently released. We’re getting a new game this summer – on console, PC and portable platforms. Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t see The Force Awakens yet (and what Star Wars fan hasn’t?) then you’re going to want to watch it before getting this game. Disney is working with Warner Bros. and developer TT Games, and together they’re bringing the vision of Lego Star Wars characters to life. That means we get the best you can expect from the parody series with puns and humor galore. There is exclusive content from Episode VI and TFA but per usual, this isn’t canon. This is a hilarious and fun take on the series that only a LEGO Star Wars game could do. You can see the trailer below but if you have the PS4, you can even download…

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens – New Adventures Trailer

Looking for something fun from LEGO Star Wars? Here’s a trailer that got me excited, since I’m a big fan (so are my kids). This 2-minute trailer will show you just what you can expect from the new adventures. If you love LEGO Star Wars and The Force Awakens, then you’re really going to appreciate this. We knew with the release of the new films and the renewed excitement of Star Wars in mainstream culture that we were going to see many things Star Wars themed. It’s true that unless you’ve been living under a rock on a deserted island, you’ve heard of Star Wars. For some longtime fans, the new popularity of the franchise is annoying. Some feel like every company is just pandering to the popularity that came from the new movie. While not everyone will agree, I am happy about the new popularity of the franchise. You can never…

I Played 13 Star Wars Mobile Games. Here are the Best.

Over the past couple years, we’ve seen a lot of new Star Wars games, just not where you might expect them: on your phone. There have been tons of new mobile games that have come out since Disney took over the franchise, from Rebels-themed kids’ games and puzzlers to tower defense and shooters. But are any of them any good? Do they stand up to the classics, like Rogue Squadron and Shadows of the Empire? I had to find out, so I sat down and played 13 of them. It took me a while, but here’s what I found out. The Best: Knights of the Old Republic It’s getting old now, but this game has translated remarkably well to mobile platforms. The controls are really easy to use, the gameplay is intuitive, and the story is a classic one that stands the test of time. The graphics are what you’d expect for a game that’s…
