Speculation: The Future of Star Wars Video Games

In June, EA revealed that they will be “doubling down” their Star Wars output, which is much needed given their lacklustre approach to putting games out based on the Galaxy far, far away. Since they got the license in 2013 we have got three console games with a fourth on the way and four forContinue reading “Speculation: The Future of Star Wars Video Games”

Speculation! Star Wars Jedi: Franchise Ideas

Recently, during an earnings call, the head of EA Games announced that last years ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ will be the beginning of a new franchise of games.

Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 1 – Imperial Machine

I can’t believe that I’m about to say this. I found this book to be disappointing. I think, because I had heard so many great things about Charles Soule’s Vader series that I went in with very high expectations. Don’t get me wrong, it starts out amazingly in the first issue which is essentially VaderContinue reading “Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 1 – Imperial Machine”

Jedi: Fallen Order – Some Thoughts

‘Jedi: Fallen Order’ is a masterclass in what a single-player ‘Star Wars’ game should be. The story is well written and fits perfectly into existing canon and even expands on some of the established content we have had. Given the time the story is set, the obvious choice for a Dark Side villain would beContinue reading “Jedi: Fallen Order – Some Thoughts”

Jedi: Fallen Order Mission 11 – Nur/Fortress Inquisitorius

Jedi: Fallen Order Mission 7 – Dathomir

Oh boy this level was a nightmare! First off, you land on Dathomir and speak to Cere, things are tense but not as tense as before so Greez will be happy.

Jedi: Fallen Order Mission 6 – The Arena and Kashyyyk Part 2

This mission follows on directly from the fight where you are knocked out on Zeffo. You wake up in a cell, B-D 1 is gone, as is your lightsaber.

Once he’s been repaired you continueContinue reading “Jedi: Fallen Order Mission 6 – The Arena and Kashyyyk Part 2”

Jedi: Fallen Order Mission 5 – Back to Zeffo

“Why does everyone want to go back to Jakku?” This is my sentiment towards the return to Zeffo. Well, in a good way. It’s just tough. The Empire have managed to excavate a new tomb on the planet and it’s up to you to stop them. The Imperial presence has increased and as you makeContinue reading “Jedi: Fallen Order Mission 5 – Back to Zeffo”

Cal decides to helpContinue reading “Jedi: Fallen Order Mission 4 – Kashyyyk”
