Outer Rim Fan Film

You know how we love our Star Wars fan films but here’s one that stretches the imagination to show us what may have been happening to some people amidst the war between the Empire and the rebellion. While the main films focus on the action and all the heroes and villains there at ground zero, here’s a fan film that shows us what some everyday people might have been doing. Truth be told, many people living on the outer edge of the galaxy probably weren’t paying all that much attention to the battles going on. They were likely just going on about their daily business. Director Thomas R. Wood brings us the story of two doofuses who weren’t all that interested in the war going on around them. It’s a fun, humorous little short that’s been called the “Dude, Where’s My Car?” of Star Wars. The two friends are working…

SWTOR Producer Keith Kanneg’s update about long maintenance situation

Keith Kanneg had a rough star as new game producer for SWTOR. Yesterday he had to handle the first majoer issue since he started his job, as the BioWare team had to expand the maintenance window for  Patch 5.2.1. Maintenance: May 2nd, 2017 | 05.02.2017, 02:46 PM Hey everyone, Wow, what a day trying to get everyone back in the game! As you already know, maintenance today has not gone as planned. So, I felt it was important to jump in and discuss what’s transpired and what’s going on. First, during our initial validation steps this morning, anyone using BitRaider to update the SWTOR client quickly discovered nothing was actually downloaded. This delayed the opening by about an hour. Second, as soon as we were ready to verify everything was working properly (around 11:30am CT), we found we couldn’t connect to the game and were receiving a Login Server is unavailable message. Unfortunately,…

Disney’s Possible Smoke and Mirrors Campaign

If you’ve followed Lucasfilm/LucasArts in the past, you know they go to great lengths to hide their story and plot when new films are coming out. Some of the crew of the original films even said they never got the full script – only the parts that applied to them – so no one knew the full story. The new films are operating on the same level of secrecy and this means it’s difficult to find anything but rumors when it comes to the making of the films. However, since rumors abound and leaks hit Episode 7 just months before it was revealed, some wonder if Disney is operating a campaign to be one step ahead of potential leaks. So some question the number of leaks coming out now and the potential that Disney could be running their own smoke and mirrors campaign to throw people off track. One of…

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Could Beat Call of Duty

There is a lot of buzz about Star Wars Battlefront 2 going around, as the much anticipated game will be launching this year. The recent DICE games of Battlefield and Battlefront have seen a growth in sales over time where games like Call of Duty are on the decline in sales. The Call of Duty franchise was a massive hit but it may have already peaked. This article from Gamer Headquarters talks about how Battlefront 2 could beat Call of Duty when it comes to sales. Here’s part of what they had to say about it: “The first Star Wars Battlefront topped over 14 million sales which is damn impressive for a franchise that’s been sitting dormant for many years. Sure, carrying the Star Wars name is helpful though to hit that level of sales is most certainly impressive. This really being for any game as few hit that high…

Countdown – A Star Wars Fan Film

Here’s another great Star Wars fan film that went above and beyond to share their story. I’ll let you watch it to see what I mean by that statement, but for now, let’s move on to the story. In a desperate attempt to save the future, Xenia travels back in time to a pivotal moment in history–the untimely assassination of Senator Desera–hoping that by saving the senator, she can change the course of history for the better. It was great story, it has action, and the fight/lightsaber scenes are great. The acting is good and the dialogue isn’t stiff like with some fan films. Costumes and props are also nicely done. All in all, it hits all the marks for what I’d say makes a great film. You can tell a lot of time and dedication went into this which is part of what I love the most about Star…
