Star Wars Fan Film Unity of the Force

Star Wars Unity of the Force (Fan Film)

Here’s a really cool fan made film we think you will enjoy. In this story, the young hero, Lak, is tasked with finding an artifact, a special lightsaber that is said to be the most powerful in existence. He is less than enthused in the beginning, which makes him different from many young Jedis. I would expect him to be chomping at the bit to take on a mission like this but instead, his attitude was one of “Can’t someone else do it?” While this annoyed me, I also thought it was kind of refreshing to see a different angle taken. So anyway, he goes on to complete this mission to find The Artifact and there are many obstacles in his way, which is no surprise. I think you’ll find it a fun little short and the ending was a bit of a surprise to me. The ending may surprise…

The Academy, Ep 4 – “Which Class Should I Play?”

The Academy Ep 4 - Which Class Should I Play

We told you about this upcoming episode of The Academy and it’s a good one, especially for new players (the intended audience). This one is all about what class you should play. So if you’re new to the game, or know someone who is, this is a great video to watch before picking your class. The real bottom line is that every class is unique and good in its own way, so there really are no right and wrong choices. However, the class you choose when you’re just starting out may affect how you appreciate the game and if you want to stick with it long term. Different people have different player styles. What works for one person may not work for another.  If you try one class and you’re just not feeling it, it’s easy to just make a new character. We agree with Swtorista that you should try…

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…
