We Want More Star Wars Games (But Without Jedi?)

I think something we can all agree on is that we want more Star Wars games. I’ve been writing about it here for years and even more sadly, written about it each time an anticipated Star Wars game got canned. And honestly, it sucks. Which is why a lot of fans are excited about the latest Star Wars game on the way – Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. And there’s also that little Lego Star Wars game I keep talking about… But anyway, back to Fallen Order. It may be the next game we’re getting, but is it really the next Star Wars game fans wanted? Robert Endyo from Gameverse has a theory that Star Wars gamer fans want to see less Jedi. Gamers would also like games that would be great as eSports. This site provides the best strategies for e-sports betting. Here’s some of what he has to…

Star Wars: Dark Forces Fan Remake

Star Wars: Dark Forces Fan Remake

There is a fan remake of Star Wars: Dark Forces in Unreal Engine 4 and it is now available for download. Created by Obsidian Entertainment’s senior environment artist, Jason Lewis, this remake aimed to recreate the first level from the game in Epic’s engine. The map doesn’t have any enemies so it’s just for recreation, but it looks to deliver on the fun. The attention to detail is really amazing and it also gives us a visual of what a modern take on this classic Star Wars shooter might look like. See it in action here: For those who may not remember, Star Wars: Dark Forces is a first-person shooter that came out in 1995. It used Jedi Engine, a game engine created especially for the game. It had some really cool features that were previously unheard of for a first-person shooter at the time, like multiple floored level design…

The gameplay was cool, but the STORY WAS WHAT MADE IT LEGIT. This raises so many theories it’s unbelievable. Who was Vader speaking to? Snoke?” If you like it, please support his channel. More info on how you can support in the description of the video. I do not have Oculus Rift so I was really excited that he did this video for us. Oculus has…

LucasFilm Games is Hiring

LucasFilm Games is Hiring

Lucasfilm is looking to get back into the games industry. They have posted a list of jobs at Disney Careers. Many of these are positions for Lucasfilm Games. There are open positions for: Producer Brand Art Coordinator Brand Marketing Coordinator Assistant Producer Associate Brand Art Director Associate Brand Marketing Manager Assistant Producer – Asia Could this mean a revival of LucasArts? It’s too early to tell right now because it seems like it’s just going to be LucasFilm for games under the existing EA contract. It’s actually not likely that it’s a revival of LucasArts we we knew it before. Most likely, it’s something else. These are publisher positions, not developer positions, so they are not doing internal games. Instead, they are working on projects already in the EA/Disney umbrella. Either way, it’s interesting. And if you’re looking for a position in the industry, this could be a great open…

Star Wars Games: Top 5 Honourable Mentions

Star Wars games are like a fine wine – they only age better with time. But to be fair, the saga had its ups and downs throughout almost three decades of existence on the gaming market. Back in the mid-1990s and ‘00s, there have been more than two dozen Star Wars universe-themed games released explicitly for PC, and frankly, not every release fulfilled the developer expectations. Just like the movies, some games are remembered much more fondly than others. There’s even this common saying about the whole deal – for every beloved Star Wars game, there’s half-dozen of the ‘ehh’ ones. But today is not about the dark side of the Star Wars games industry. Today’s all about those all-time classics, amongst which, there’s even a game that, by some fans, is considered as being better than the entire film saga! Is the force still strong with such a bold…
