Posted by on May 24, 2015 in Knights of the Old Republic, Kotor, other starwars games | 0 comments

Here’s something really cool that’s ready (in beta) for you to download now and check it out. RevengeofRevan.com Developer Blog asks, “Can a mod be created that won’t disrupt KOTOR canon and still allow players to continue their stories from KOTOR1 and KOTOR2? Ever since the MMO was announced along with the Revan book, this has been on my mind. The short answer is: yes, it can be done. But the next part is, how you can do this without putting yourself in a corner and hurting your creative freedom?” Revenge of Revan (RoR) does exactlly that. It will allow fans to continue their story based on the choices they make in the last two games so they can continue while still fitting the KoTOR canon. Even with the non-strict canon choice the story for the mod will still fit nicely between KOTOR2 and SWTOR in the large grand scheme of events, but finer details will be different. The developer explains more here: For those who want to define their experience based on...

Posted by on May 21, 2015 in other starwars games | 0 comments

Have you ever wondered more about Star Wars: Republic Commando? As a Star Wars game fan, it’s always great to learn more about a game, especially when you can get some insider info from a programmer or developer. That is exactly what  happened in this case, where lead programmer Brett Douville speaks out in this video, more than an hour and 20 minutes of oral history of Star Wars: Republic Commando. From the description: I’m Brett Douville — I was a programmer and lead programmer at LucasArts for seven years. The last game I did there was Star Wars: Republic Commando, and in this series, I’m going to go ahead and play through the game, telling you stuff about it. I’m really proud with what we accomplished with this game, especially considering some of the stuff that happened towards the end — which I’ll describe in a future video. So come back, or watch it over on Twitch live on Tuesdays. Check me out @brett_douville on Twitter for show...

Electronic Arts Cuts Staff At Visceral Games To Focus On New Star Wars Title

Posted by on May 12, 2015 in electronic arts, other starwars games | 0 comments

According to Game Informer, it has been confirmed , that EA has laied off  a smaller number of staff over at Visceral. “We made a small staffing change in our Visceral studio today to support the needs of the studio’s two current development priorities: content for Battlefield Hardline Premium and an unannounced Star Wars project,” an EA representative told us via email.  “We are working to ensure the smoothest transition possible for the impacted employees.” Electronic arts did mention anything about Amy Hennig and Todd Stashwick, who are leading the work on a still not official named Star Wars game, so we don’t know if they are affected by these changes. EA declined to share specific numbers impacted by the change. In April, Visceral’s Steve Papoutsis left EA after 14 years. Scott Probst currently leads Visceral’s efforts, including work on follow-up content for Battlefield Hardline and the upcoming Star Wars game. [Via Jedi...

Posted by on May 5, 2015 in Knights of the Old Republic, Kotor, other starwars games | 0 comments

Do you ever wish that you could bring back your favorite game? Do you ever want to find a way to express your needs for a remaster or reboot of an old classic? Video game companies are listeing today. The developers understand the importance of keeping the gamers happy. Without the fans, they have nothing. So this is why this little petition over at ipetitions.com might actually gain some ground. What could we possibly do as a community to make BioWare, Disney, EA, pretty much anybody acknowledge how much we want a KotOR 3 or KotOR remaster. Its been 12 years since the game we love so much was released, not to mention 10 since KotOR 2. Battlefront 3 is coming, but still, no mention of our beloved KotOR. Don’t they see how many people want this? Plus the amount of money they would make…hype it up with good promotions and all, I mean, it’s KotOR it would barely even need that. Im so nostalgic right now after killing Revan on my third 60 in SWToR, they really...
