Star Wars: Battle Pod – From Concept to Cockpit

Posted by on Jan 29, 2015 in other starwars games | 0 comments

  The official Star Wars Youtube channel posted a video called Star Wars: Battle Pod – From Concept to Cockpit. The video goes behind the scenes of Star Wars: Battle Pod, a new arcade shooter from Lucasfilm, Disney Interactive, and Bandai Namco, in this special video from StarWars.com. Star Wars: Battle Pod, with an enveloping dome screen, air blasts, and rumble, redefines the Star Wars arcade experience for a new generation. The first Star Wars game ever was an arcade shooter, released in 1983, and many other Star Wars arcade games followed through the years — Star Wars: Battle Pod hearkens back to that tradition. “We’re going back to our roots, so to speak,” says Lucasfilm’s Matt Shell, “in developing this really exciting arcade unit.” The game takes players through the original Star Wars trilogy, from the Battle of Yavin to Endor, with some surprises along the way. Combined with the cabinet’s features, it’s an...

Star Wars: Battle Pod Arcade Game Is Like Living The Original Trilogy

Posted by on Jan 28, 2015 in other starwars games | 0 comments

A new Star Wars Battle Pod arcade style game has been released in the US and will be available to ship everywhere by March. This cool throw back style games uses a panoramic cockpit display. Because of this style of display it’s referencing back to Starblade in many ways. In 2001, Namco decided to make a sequel for the first Starblade. It was one of the first games in the USGF series that used a concave mirror to reflect the game and make a panoramic effect to make it feel real. It also used 3D graphics with polygons and was one of the first of its kind to do so. When Starblade Operation Blue Planet was shown at arcade shows, Namco wanted to make sure they impressed the way the original Starblade did. However, it never released to the public. The new Star Wars Battle Pod game is using the same theme and style as the Over Reality Booster System that was used for Starblade. The original Starblade would not even be in existence if it wasn’t for the Star Wars influence in the gaming...

Visceral Games “CAN’T WAIT” TO SHOW OFF NEW STAR WARS GAME, SOMETHING “VERY COOL” ON THE HORIZON

Posted by on Jan 26, 2015 in other starwars games | 0 comments

  Following up on the upcoming Han Solo game rumor, we came by a few tweets from  Amy Hennig, who is the Creative Director For the new ‘Star Wars’ Project, and Todd Stashwick who is Co-Writing Visceral’s Star Wars Game Everyone who has played the Uncharted trilogy video games understands how talented the writer, Amy Henning, is. The games made you feel like you were actually Nathan Drake, or one of his buddies, and it made you feel what the character felt. Amy Henning does not work for Naughty Dog anymore when she left to join EA’s Visceral Games in order to work on an unannounced Star Wars title. We assume that since the very talented writer is going to be a part of this new Star Wars game, we will be sure to experience a rollercoaster of emotions. We all know by now that there isn’t much info on the new Star Wars game because EA wants to keep everything quiet, but we are crossing our fingers for some updated information soon. We need Star Wars! @litemares Yep, very much so!...

Rumor: Visceral Is Developing A Han Solo Game

Posted by on Jan 26, 2015 in other starwars games | 0 comments

  Everyone is excited about The Force Awakens and because of this we sometimes forget that there are new Star Wars games in the works right now. We all know that Star Wars Battlefront is going to be released later in the year but Visceral has another game in development. EA has not yet revealed what the games will be about but there are many rumors of what it could possibly be. Star Wars 7 News is claiming that they know what it will be about. According to their sources it will be based on Han Solo and it could connect to a film. In 2013, EA stated that they would no longer be making any games developed from movies but this does not mean that the possibility of a game connecting with a new film could happen; it could be a prequel. This would be an exciting new take on a Star Wars video game but do you think EA will base it off the new movie? Leave your comments below. “Visceral’s game is about Han Solo, he says its dev. is very troubled but the game looks awesome. He also...

Star Wars: Battlefront vs EA’s Open World Star Wars Game!

Posted by on Jan 8, 2015 in other starwars games, Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

  The new and upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront has not received a release date as of yet, but we do know that the date of “Holiday 2015” means that we have something to look forward to. Hopefully we will have some excellent gaming before we get our hands on the new Battlefront game. The question we want to ask today is would you rather play Star Wars: Battlefront or EA’s Open World Star Wars game? The only information that has been released for Star Wars: Battlefront is that there should be a small connection to the Star Wars: Episode VII-The Force Awakens, something in the likeness of easter eggs or characters and ships. Kotaku confirmed that EA was in development of an open world style game set in the Star Wars universe, but there are no details about what the game will include. We think that it will not be another MMO since SWTOR is already going really well. We are assuming that it may take the style of GTA V, maby. Imagine being able to switch from different characters, one...
