The Future of Star Wars Games

You know how we love our Star Wars games here. It’s what the entire site is about! Well, let’s talk games for a bit here. I’ve been playing Star Wars games for as long as I can remember and every time a new one is in production or released, I’m excited to try it out. Admittedly, they’re not all for me, but that’s the beauty of the Star Wars universe and the popularity of it all – they just keep making more games. But… what if they stopped? Or what if the games they make aren’t the ones the fans really want? Or what if we get bored of the same old, same old they keep shoving at us? What then? This article from Hardcore Gamer discusses the topic of the future of Star Wars games and we think they have some really great points. So rather than say again…

Replay 300 – Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II

Game Informer just recently kicked off a limited series called replay 300. In this series, they play select games from their Top 300 list, regardless of their history on Replay. The first episode was Super Metroid, which was a bit nostalgic for me as well, but it was the second week that the magic really happened. For week 2 of Replay 300, they hit a different corner of space in Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. This was one of the first Star Wars games I ever played. It was also one of the first that ever got lightsabers right (although it’s debatable in the community). They brought Dark Jedi/ dark forces to the game and this wasn’t really done before either. So join Andy, Reiner, Joe, Tack and Leo as we take look back at the pulse-pounding gameplay and beautiful FMV cutscenes of a now twenty-year-old Star Wars game….

X-Wing Alliance Mod Project from Alaska Works

I just had to make a post today to show you this really cool project we came across. It’s not exactly new, but it’s not getting the attention it really deserves, so you may not have heard about it. This is a very impressive shader mod project with demo videos for what was one of the best Star Wars games ever made. X-Wing Alliance! The last and arguably ultimate Star Wars space combat simulator. Although it was released in 1999, several mods are available that freshen up the appearance while retaining the surprisingly deep gameplay. If you haven’t seen it yet, but you loved X-Wing Alliance, I highly recommend you head over and check it out. It’s really awesome and it will bring a big nostalgic feel as well. They have loads of information on their website here, including instructions for using the mod, but there are also some videos…

The Collapse Of Visceral’s Ambitious Star Wars Game

By now, you probably have already heard that the anticipated game was canceled. It seemed like a winner, a Star Wars take on Uncharted, published by Electronic Arts and developed by the longrunning studio Visceral Games. However, we know how it goes in the land of video games and it’s not unusual for one to get the chopping block, even when it seems it will be a hit. On October 17, 2017, employees of Visceral were told the company would be closing. This meant their ambitious Star Wars game would also get the axe. The project was called Ragtag. It was meant to be EA’s entry into the action-adventure market—a linear Star Wars story set between the episode IV and V movies that would compete with the likes of Uncharted and Tomb Raider. It was lead up by Amy Hennig, iconic writer, and director who is known for her work on the Uncharted games. The team at Visceral worked hard creating…

A Gem of a Star Wars Game – Jedi Starfighter

If you never had the chance to play the game, or if you’re just looking for some nostalgic fun, check out this Jedi Starfighter Retro Review from Joe, The Alternative Gamer. He says everything I would say about this game (and likely better). I was a big fan back in the day and honestly, I’d love to go back and play it again for old time’s sake.  It’s an all-around great game and a lot of fun to play. Some have called it “Rogue Squadron Lite” which is a fair assessment, really, but it’s still fun in its own right. The story itself is simple, but good enough to keep you interested. It doesn’t take away from the gameplay, but isn’t the best story around in terms of Star Wars games. That’s okay because Starfighter isn’t about that anyway. It’s about flying and fighting (duh). It’s really one of my favorite games…
