How New Technologies Will Change the Face of Star Wars Games

Source: Wikimedia Commons The last few decades have seen video game technologies develop at an incredible rate, going from milestone to milestone in a matter of years. As the world became increasingly interconnected in the 2000s, video games too have allowed people to instantly connect with one another across continents in real time with online gaming. The seminal Star Wars: Battlefront was released for this generation of consoles and allowed players to control a single soldier as part of a much larger army – pitting two teams against each other. Now in 2017, an embryonic technology is emerging in the form of virtual reality and the first few releases are likely to completely revolutionise the gaming experience. Where home consoles put games in players’ living rooms and handheld consoles brought them into our hands, virtual reality instead immerses the player fully inside the game. New downloadable content for the Star…

Should Star Wars Expand its Gaming Horizons?

Star Wars has enjoyed a revitalisation to their franchise with the launch of a new series of films, beginning in 2015 with The Force Awakens. The trend continued with Rogue One which was released at the end of last year, with both movies enjoying great success at the box office with the latter surpassing the $800m mark following its release before Christmas. One of the most prominent avenues of the series’ success has been the fruitful transition of the franchise on to several gaming platforms. Beginning with the Empire Strikes Back on Atari in 1982, two years following the release of the film, the series has gone from strength to strength, and has even spawned several spin-offs in all formats, including shoot ‘em-ups, RPG and action-adventure. Where’s the Star Wars Slot Game? However, for all the success the series has enjoyed across multiple platforms, one area it has not strayed…

BioWare Interview and SWTOR Knights of the Eternal Throne

We’ve been seeing some changes to SWTOR, especially since last year when the developers shifted the focus of the game. They decided to boost the single-player aspects of the game and while there were some players who leaned more toward the MMORPG aspect who didn’t like this, there are many more who love the story and the single-player elements. In short, they’re doing what works for them and many fans and Knights of the Fallen Empire was a clear example of that. But now we have SWTOR Knights of the Eternal Throne. Is the focus still on single-player elements? Why can’t a game be both great for single player and great for multi-player? Long time World of Warcraft players will attest that game got it right. There’s something for everyone and you don’t need to invest any time in multiplayer aspects of the game if it’s not your thing, but still…

5 Questions About Rogue One

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comes out next month! Now that we’ve passed Halloween and flipped our calendars to November, we can officially say that. For the second year running, a brand-new Star Wars movie is headed our way in December, and it’s safe to say that fans of the franchise are eagerly anticipating the release. And the latest trailer showed off broad, beautiful glimpses of a film that looks like far more than some flimsy side project. This should definitely be thought of as a full-fledged Star Wars movie, even if it’s not part of the core series. And if that’s the case, we all have some questions! It would take many, many pages to cover some of the speculation going on about what Rogue One will bring us and what it will mean for the greater Star Wars universe. But to sum up some fun speculation, here…

Carrie Fisher Says Trump Has “Coke Sniff”

If you watched the US Presidential debate last night, or the first presidential debate, you may have noticed that Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, had a bit of a sniffling problem. Even if you didn’t see it for  yourself, you may have seen social media, especially Twitter, having a ball laughing and speculating over it. This is something many onlookers took note of with the first debate. Trump’s sniffles were a big topic of conversation after the first debate on September 26, and the sniffles returned for the second debate leading someone to ask Fisher about it via Twitter. Fisher was asked through social media during the debate Sunday night if Trump was a “coke head” and her answer isn’t really all that surprising. “I’m an expert & ABSOLUTELY,” the Star Wars actress responded on her verified Twitter account. @reimamy I’m an expert & ABSOLUTELY — Carrie Fisher (@carrieffisher) October 10,…
