Lenova is Updating Star Wars: Jedi Challenges

Lenovo and Disney are rolling out a new mode for their Star Wars: Jedi Challenges game and this means you’re going to face off against your buds in lightsaber duels. How awesome is that?! Lenovo is rolling out an update to its Stars Wars: Jedi Challenges title that introduces local multiplayer. Lightsaber Versus Mode is a new feature that lets players battle their friends in AR lightsaber duels. Both players will need a Lenovo Mirage AR Headset, Lightsaber controller and a tracking beacon, costing $199. That’s a hefty investment for most people, unless you have a couple hundred bucks to blow, or you already have the set for other games and AR stuff. Lenova announced the news in a press release earlier today: “In Lightsaber Versus Mode, players are guided by visual cues indicating when and where to block, dodge, and strike,” Lenovo wrote. “As players face off, the battle increases in difficulty until one…

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…
