Top 10 Worst Star Wars Games of all times

Top 10 Worst Star Wars Games

We’ve talked time and time again about all the Star Wars games that have come out over the years. In fact, there’s been more than 30 years of Star Wars games published and they are most definitely not all created equal. So as much as we love to share all of our favorite games, it can sometimes be just as entertaining to talk about the ones that bombed it. With over 100 games based on the Star Wars franchise, you have to expect that a few might not measure up like the rest. Here’s a video from GameTrailers on the Top 10 Worst Star Wars Games of all times, that includes Yoda Stories (aww, it was such a good idea that just wasn’t implemented well), Super Bombad Racing (another great idea not implemented well), Episode 1: The Phantom Menace and more. GT tells us exactly why each of the 10 makes it…

Knights of the Fallen Empire Behind the Scenes

Knights of the Fallen Empire Behind the Scenes

Knights of the Fallen Empire “Story and Writing” Video We have something cool released today to help us prepare for the new expansion: KOTFE. This video released today shows us an exclusive behind the scenes view from the lead writer. It’s fun, it’s creative and it’s bound to make you get excited about the upcoming expansion. That said, they didn’t release much more about the game or story, as most fans were hoping for. This serves really as more of a teaser video, once again giving us glimpses of what we can expect to get us hyped and excited for the expansion but without any real meat and potatoes of what we can expect. This is a bit of a letdown but again, not really a surprise. They want to keep us intrigued but not give away too much so we want to buy the expansion. So with that in…

Versus Series | Revan vs Galen Marek: Video

Revan vs Galen Marek

  The Balance of the Force. Who is the true master of the light and dark? That is a very good question for Star Wars fans everywhere and this versus video attempts to answer that, complete with some background on each character and a timeline of events of progression. This Versus video, just over 30 minutes runtime, explains the background of Revan and Marek, including how they came into power, how they changed over time and other life and background info. It’s a good recap too for those who might not remember (or just don’t know) the full stories of each. As we’ve said before about these versus videos, this is just one person’s interpretation of the outcome of the matchup.   It’s quite common that we see fans squabble over this and honestly, it’s part of the fun for me. Seeing how different fans interpret the potential faceoff and…

Versus Series Darth Malak VS Darth Vader

Versus Series Darth Malak VS Darth Vader

Here we have another great episode of the versus series: Darth Malak VS Darth Vader It’s a Darth vs Darth battle. This should be interesting… You know how we love these videos. They are a lot of fun for fans and even if we don’t agree on the outcome, or what it should be, it can be a lot of fun to watch. So here we go for this one: If you have seen these versus videos before, you know that they don’t always end the way we wish and sometimes that is part of the fun. In fact, some fans have even complained that they are biased but wouldn’t that kind of make logical sense too? I mean, the person creating the video is going to give it the outcome they think is most likely to happen. Yes, it will be based in lore and timelines and other facts from…

Satele Shan VS Darth Maul

Satele Shan VS Darth Maul

Satele Shan vs. Darth Maul – Here’s another versus matchup video we think you might enjoy. Who do you see the victor in this showdown? If you ask me, I say Satele has it by a long shot but it could be just because I am such a fan. This is not to known on Darth Maul. He was an amazing duelist. In fact, were it not for Satele’s ability with The Force, she could easily finish him off. Some will argue that since Shan is a grandmaster, this isn’t even a fight and she would take it by a landslide. However, Maul was very powerful and skilled with the sabers and I still believe would put up a good fight in a versus battle such as this. A lot of it also comes down to timing, and where in their story each is when they are pitted against one…

Star Wars Lore – THE RAKATA (Part 2)

rakata thumbnail for swtorstrategies

Greetings Star Wars lore junkies. I’m Vulkk and working on this video took me insane amount of time and effort. I am glad it is finished finally. If you enjoy it, that will be my biggest reward. Part 2 of the RAKATA History and Lore will tell us about their First encounter with the Je’daii, explain the reasons for the Empire’s Collapse and what happened to the Remnants of the once mighty Infinite Empire. The Rakata (also known as the Builders) were a technologically advanced race that developed early in galactic history, even developing some early hyperdrive technology. Long term use of the dark side of the Force corrupted their society and turned them into a race of merciless warriors. The Rakata used their potent Force-powered technologies to conquer and enslave every other species they came across throughout their known galaxy. During the reign of theirInfinite Empire, they were characterized by…

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Choose Your Path Trailer

swtor Choose Your Path Trailer

Remember we wrote about the new SWTOR video, BioWare were teasing about the other day? Well.. here it is. The video is just a minute long, and showes a mashup of the Sith Warrior storyline: from class stories to Makeb to SoR and a scene towards the end that is new. (It has a couple of cutscenes from FPs and WZs thrown in.) Heavy emphasis on LS vs DS choices. No new announcements. However, the new scene features Theron Shan in it: he may be back in a new update. The video was obvius made as a promotion to get more people to play the game, and not as a video for existing players. Check it out below: Watch the new Choose Your Path gameplay trailer and be the legendary hero or epic villain in your own Star Wars™ adventure in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!

And now something different… Wanderers – a short film by Erik Wernquist

Space

  I admit that the short movie below doesn’t have to do anything with Star Wars or The Old Republic. It does show however a future where the ability to travel from planet and planet is the norm just like Star Wars. After all, nothing tells that today’s science fiction isn’t going to be tomorrow’s reality. The short film, depicts a less sci-fi and more realistic future and uses Carl Sagan‘s voice to narrate its content. If you got about four minutes to spare, it’s certainly worth a look. You can also find a shot-by-shot description of the movie under this link as well as a link to the creator’s website right here.

TOR TV: The Incredible Exploits of Captain Jirk!

The Daring Captain Jirk has been asked to investigate a Sith cult on the planet Athiss. This is when the fun really begins… This is an amazing silent film made from a SWTOR Flashpoint. You know how we feel about fan fiction and other projects but this is a unique one for sure. You remember those cool old silent movies from back in the day? Well, there’s a good chance you don’t actually remember them. I know they were before my time even. Still I know what they are and I’ve seen a couple myself. You’ve probably seen them on TV or in a movie theater preview if you’re too young to remember when they were actually the popular thing. This fun little SWTOR film was done in silent movie style from a flashpoint and we think it’s a lot of fun. Check it out for yourself!
