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. Perhaps that is one reason so many people can relate to it. We see parts of ourselves in the characters and parts of our own worlds in the Star Wars Universe. 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…

Battlefront II: E3 and EA’s eSports Aspirations

If you were going to speak about the current status of eSports in a language that all Star Wars fans understand, you could perhaps say that the force is strong with this one. Competitive gaming is a fully-blown industry these days, with research suggesting that its revenues will hit $696 million this year and then grow to a massive $1.5 billion by 2020. It may not have yet been totally embraced by the mainstream, but every year eSports edges closer to that level with broadcasters showing major tournaments and the concept genuinely becoming big business. Like more standard sports, there are now thousands of fans attending events in person and millions more watching online, with major tournaments and teams attracting huge sponsorship deals with global brands including Audi and Red Bull. There is now even a burgeoning eSports betting scene, with sites like Bets io offering odds on major ties being played…

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer recreated in Battlefront 2 2005

Here is something pretty awesome. Youtuber Angry Ewok had to much time on his hands, and decided to recreat the complease Star Wars: Battlefront 2 trailer showcased at EA play last week. Check it out: As as stated in the beginning, this is both crazily awesome, and sad at the same time. I haven’t played BF2 for some time, and I don’t remember it looking this… bad. Part of that is because I am  remembering the parts of the new Battlefront 2 and how they’re similar, and thereby comparing them in my mind even if I  don’t realize it… And I am comparing these graphics to the graphics of the new game, and the gap is so wide it makes these seem even worse. But that is just me rambling. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is slated for release on November 17 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with a $59.99 price tag….

Why Battlefront 2 Needs an eSports Element

Star Wars-themed computer games have such a hugely dedicated following simply because the games enable every fan to explore and live in their own part of the Star Wars universe. In many ways, this is the holy grail of a good Star Wars game, with titles like Star Wars: Rebellion and the original Star Wars Battlefront game allowing gamers to indulge their fantasies of running the Galactic Empire or helping the Rebel Alliance to become rulers of the galaxy. “Star Wars: Commander” by  (CC BY 2.0) This formula has been successful for handing Star Wars games an enduring popularity, and has even helped to keep them relevant and popular during the dark days of the prequels (days which still cause fans to shudder when looking back at some of the storylines and acting!) but now gaming is changing, and perhaps it is finally time for Star Wars games to change with the…

It was already revealed back in late April that EA wouldn’t add season pass for Star Wars Battlefront II, and yesterday, the publisher confirmed this to be true. Instead the game will  Star Wars Battlefront II. The first content update will arive togeter with Star Wars: The last jedi in december, and add Finn and Captain Phasma to the game, as well as planet Crait.

The important thing is everything can…

First shown at E3 in Los Angeles, the new trailer demonstrates just how expansive it will be, pulling in characters, locations, and vehicles that cover the entire 40-year history of the saga.

We’re still early in the hype cycle for the game, but this might be good guys. Story mode seems interesting to. What do you thing guys? Did EA just redeem itself? Holy shit. If they can deliver on what this trailer promises…. this will be one of the greatest games. And I’m just so happy prequels aren’t ignored…
