Back in 2016, an ambitious group of fans began work on an Unreal Engine 4 “reboot” of role-playing, light-sabering classic Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic called Apeiron. The project has made impressive progress since then, but it emitted a tragic Wilhelm scream this week when Lucasfilm lawyers zapped it out of…

Yes, that Star Wars—the one from a galaxy far, far away—made a K-Pop song.
Back in 2015, Kirk Hamilton floated a “crackpot theory” that Ciri from The Witcher III told a tale of traveling to the world of CD Projekt Red’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. What if he was wrong? What if she traveled to a galaxy far, far away?
If there’s one thing repeated Kickstarter successes have proven, it’s that board gamers love little plastic miniatures. And if there’s one thing they love more than little plastic miniatures, it’s bigger plastic miniatures.
The makers of Star Wars Battlefront II will restore Emperor Palpatine to the game a little over a month after they removed him. That will cap several weeks of online discussion about how long an announced “hotfix” should take and just what a game studio and a fandom should do when the community manager is on vacation.
Emperor Palpatine isn’t getting the respect he deserves, so last week I asked you to put the evil-ass Sith Lord in basically everything that you could. I was not [evil voice] disappointed.
I really liked Solo! What I liked most—and don’t let this appearing in a concept art feature shock you—was how good it looked, how Star Wars everything was, from Corellia to the Kessel Run.

There’s a new Star Wars out, have you seen it yet? It’s more likely than ever that the answer is “no.” Solo: A Star Wars Story, the origin tale of everyone’s favorite stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder, has been struggling hard at the box office since its release on May 25.
Spoilers here, obviously.
My friend and game development colleague Brent Porter and I throw around the term “Honest Geometry” when we talk about 3D video game levels we like. Gall Spaceport, from 1996 Nintendo 64 game Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, is the flagbearer of this term. “Honest Geometry” means the interior of a structure perfectly…
Sometimes it’s the little things that bug players. And sometimes those little things are worth fixing. That’s the case with Battlefront II, a game with a playerbase that’s been frustrated by microtransactions and a lack of new content but at least has had their call answered to get rid of the holograms in the game’s…
Some context: I love looking up old advertisement compilations on YouTube. There’s a million of them, they all have like 6000 views each and they’re fantastic to put on in the background. For a good time, just search “CM” followed by any year from like 1981-1992.
