Posted by on Jun 5, 2014 in other starwars games | 0 comments

We’ve talked about the best Star Wars games here lately but let’s take some time to look at some of the worst. Here are some Star Wars games that were considered flops: Star Wars: Super Bombad Racing – Arcane-style karting game but it wasn’t what fans were looking for Star Wars Kinect – A good idea gone horribly wrong? Star Wars: Force Commander – Star Wars RTS, what can go wrong? This one just wasn’t developed enough before release Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi – Remains at the top of nearly every list of “Worst Star Wars games ever” Star Wars Demolition- Star Wars skinned “Twisted Metal” knockoff that didn’t quite work out Do you have any you’d add to the list? It’s important when talking about our worst Star Wars gaming experiences that we remember that without the worst, we would not have the best. It takes failures, flops and funnies to get to the good stuff in most things in life, and...

DICE’s Star Wars: Battlefront – Something for the Fans to Really Look Forward to

Posted by on Jun 5, 2014 in other starwars games, Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

  Star Wars gamers and fans of the movies/universe are certainly living in exciting times these days. While they do not currently have much available to them gaming-wise, they certainly have great things to look forward to and to be excited about. There’s a lot on the horizon for fans of the cult classic, and even though it is now certain 2014 won’t bring them the fulfillment and joy only a well-put together Star Wars game of movie can deliver, 2015 looks promising, at least according to EA’s Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen, who said at the annual shareholders’ meeting of the company that Star Wars: Battlefront would indeed be released during the second or third quarter of 2015. The stormy history of the title and the speculation sparked by the game’s introduction at E3 in June, 2013 (trough a ~30-second intro), don’t exactly paint a clear or even relevant picture of what DICE (EA’s subsidiary in charge of the project) plan to with the title. According to DICE’s Peter...

If you are a gamer fan and a Star Wars fan then there is a good chance you have seen and heard many things about the history of Star Wars games. You’ve probably played quite a few of these games for yourself.

You won’t be the first person to wonder this since there are so many new titles being tossed around today. But we talk of Star Wars games, we have to take a look back at the history of this franchise and the games that have sprung from it and for that, we go back to 1982.

EA Should Use These Star Wars Games as Inspiration

Posted by on Jun 3, 2014 in electronic arts, other starwars games | 0 comments

We all know that EA is a big leader in Star Wars video games. With the new canon, we know that they can also do pretty much anything they want in terms of story and put a Star Wars spin on it. But is this really the best way to do it? Are we steering too far away from what made us all fans in the first place- the original story and movies? What if new Star Wars games complemented the new movies coming out? cinelinx tells us what they think EA should use as inspiration for future Star Wars games: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Star Wars Starfighter for the PS2 Star Wars Republic Commando Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic (no complaints from us on this one) They go on in their article to explain why they think these games are the best representation of “EA could even be creative and use the incoming VR headsets to do something entirely new…. let US be the Jedi. Put the game in first person and give us a lightsaber, then add in Mirrors Edge style gameplay....

We truly appreciate the time you spent engaging in the beta.” We first heard about the game in Dec of 2013 and while it has seemed like slow going, it was supposed to feature ships that users could mod, 16-player matches in three modes and it was supposed to use the Unity Game Engine. A lot...
