Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast VR with a Gamepad

Who here loved Jedi Knight II: Outcast? I will raise my hand to that, for sure! It was an awesome game. In fact, it has been considered to be one of the best games in the Star Wars franchise history, so I am not alone in my love of it. They just don’t make them like they used to, right? Well, this new game mod let’s you experience the greatness of the game in VR (Raven). Talk about old meeting new! Modder Jochen Leopold has crafted a VR mod for the 2002 classic Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The mod itself is playable on the Oculus Rift and uses a gamepad for control instead of the Rift’s Oculus Touch controllers. Less than a month ago, the first Jedi Outcast VR version was released, but he’s not going to stop there. He’s still working on it and you can expect there…

The Best Star Wars Game Never Made? – Investigating Star Wars 1313

You know how we love Star Wars games around here, and this isn’t the first time a game we were excited about has been cancelled, but Star Wars 1313 was unique in that it had a gritty, darker feel to it than any other Star Wars game to come out before it. It really spoke to an older audience and it was going to be a great 3rd person shooter, even without the Star Wars theme to it. Add that element, that you could be your own bounty hunter, and you can see why it really stood out to a certain class of fans. It was also evolved to look like Boba Fett would be the lead in this game. Either way, it was never meant to be, so we’d never see this come to life. If you want to learn more about the game that would never be, check…

Star Wars Dominates Mobile Gaming Market by Covering all Bases

Platforms such as Android and iOS (iPhone and iPad) control the bulk of the mobile market. Chances are, you or someone you know owns at least one device powered by one of those two platforms. No matter which platform you play on, there are a few commonly shared traits. More than likely you are playing using the touch screen only (i.e., not using a bulky Bluetooth controller accessory). You have Internet access either via cellular data or via local Wi-Fi. If you are reading this then you are obviously a Star Wars fan. Being a mobile gamer today and a fan of the legacy in a galaxy far, far away is a good thing to be. The question is, has it always been this good for fans of the story George Lucas started? Star Wars fans have some of the widest choices in games to play. From collectible card games…

Star Wars the Force Unleashed 3 Prototype Footage

Here is some great footage of Star Wars the Force Unleashed 3 from a prototype. Credit goes to Corra_Ashu for uploading the original footage although we are not sure where that person originally got it either. It’s still pretty cool to look at and it really gives us an idea of what this game could have been. As we’ve written about plenty of times here, the Star Wars universe is no stranger to cancelled projects, especially when it comes to games. We have seen so many cancelled Star Wars games, it’s almost difficult to count. One project that was unfortunately killed was the third installment of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. This is a game that fans of the series were definitely looking forward to so it was a bit letdown when they announced it was cancelled. Really, it never even got as far off the ground as some other cancelled…

A History of Cancelled Star Wars Games

“Star Wars is one of the most popular settings in all of video games, so it’s no surprise that its owners are continually looking to create new bestselling games in the galaxy far, far away. But for every smash-hit like the Jedi Knight series, Battlefront, and Knights of the Old Republic, there are several games that never see the light of day. Games are cancelled for any of a number of reasons. But whether it’s the publisher canning the game late in development or an early concept that never gets fleshed out, it’s always disappointing to see games with huge potential left on the cutting room floor.” How many times have we written about a cancelled Star Wars game here? Even worse is when we tell you about a new game in the making that we’re really excited for, only to find out later, it’s been cut. We hate bringing…

Star Wars Gaming Interactive Timeline

Star Wars video games go back to 1982 (a year I am also fond of because it brought me to the world). Some readers may not be old enough to remember the earliest Star Wars games but it’s safe to say any Star Wars fan knows that there have been many more than just the recent surge in games. What if there was a way to see them all in one place? What if you could literally track Star Wars gaming back to 1982? Well, you can. Of course you can. This is the internet and the internet has everything. Huge thanks to Josh Bush (who goes by the name of “Cheese”) who has made this a possibility via an interactive timeline. The timeline covers basically every Star Wars game released, from the Empire Strike Back title published for the Atari 2600 in 1982 to Force Arena, which arrived to mobile platforms just…

Betting on Rancor Fights in SWTOR

We’ve talked about betting and gambling in Star Wars before. It was present in the movies and in one way or another, it’s mentioned or referenced in most of the lore. What if you could bet on rancor fights in SWTOR like we see in the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II trailer? Honestly, it makes sense to think in terms of the Star Wars Universe. As you may recall, Jabba the Hutt kept a rancor in a dark chamber below his throne room. When Skywalker killed it, Jabba was outraged and ordered the Jedi and his friends to be publicly executed. Think of it like a high roller losing his favorite race horse. No one would be happy about that. Rancors or the bull rancor have often been part of many Star Wars games, too, often written into mini bosses or even main bosses. The look sometimes changes but…

Star Wars Games Bootlegs and Hacks

We’ve seen many Star Wars games: some good, some bad, some never released, but how about the hacks? YouTuber SpaceHamster gives us the rundown of some comically bad hacks bearing the Star Wars name. Some of these hacks are low effort ventures: Escape from Hoth inserts a tiny, pixelated Millennium Falcon into the Atari game Asteroids, for instance. There’s also a hack that inserts the name of iconic Star Wars characters into the NES game Baseball Stars but is otherwise identical to the original game. Other hacks are hilarious for the scenarios they generate. A fine example is a Battle City hack that puts Luke in the Death Star with an assault rifle. Another is the Yoda Bros., a minimalist, one-level hack of Super Mario Bros. Some hacks don’t even pretend to make much sense. Star Wars: Jedy (yes, that’s how it’s actually spelled) hacks the Sega Genesis game Wolfchild…
