Oh man, Star Wars.

I have never understood the fascination. Yes! I loved the films when I was a kid, they're great kids films (well at least a couple of them are).

There are a couple of decent games, but the best ones are the ones without the licence- Mass Effect.

I finds mostly everything else in the crappy universe puerile and aimed at my 7 year old self that was fascinated back then.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Geezer, I can tell you haven't played KOTOR.
UglyGeezer  +   149d ago
I most certainly have, it was the best.. It's like saying I haven't heard the best One Direction song..... I have :-p

KotOR, X wing vs Tie Fighter, Pod Racer, Battlefront, Jedi Knight, Rogue Squadron, Empire at War.

That's a couple of decent games to you? All of them are excellent.

Great kids films? I must be the oldest biggest kid(@35) in the World then because I love me some Star Wars.

Btw, my favorite Star Wars games were Jedi Outcast 2, KOTOR on the original Xbox and Rogue Squadron on Gamecube. There are some other good ones but those are my favs.

OK, maybe not just kids. 'Special' people as well.

The force is not with you
UglyGeezer  +   149d ago
Maybe the Dark side ;)

Everything about masseffect is crap compared to the original Knights of the old republic. Bioware is stupid they should have kept their old 5 to 6 powers can que up on each character combat system. You didnt have to worry about stupid AI messing up the game. You could que up 5 actions for a character then move to the next one so you didnt have to worry about them dying all the time. Dragon age should have used the same system as well.

Would not even desecrate the siths name with these vile scum.
OrangePowerz  +   149d ago
I just hope Battlefront turns out ok, after the broken mess BF4 was I'm a bit skeptical.

Would love a new KotOR from Bioware.
BakPAin  +   149d ago
Yes, KOTOR would be great. Then again before Bioware does something like that, I prefer they bring back Jade Empire.

sith scum

Rebel scum...oh wait, that's me.

I'm glad that battlefront is being revived, I had a blast with the first two games. And It'll be interesting to see Viscerals project with Amy Hennig on board.

But if devs stretched out with their feelings they'd know that one thing is true: We want KOTOR 3.

Bring Star Wars 1313 back from the graveyard....you're our only hope!....maybe. Also, another Knights of the Old Republic; then I might not see EA as scum anymore.

Steam incidentally having a good deal on a bundle of Star Wars games, like 66 percent off or something.
PridedLlama  +   149d ago
There is a few deals on xbox live at the min too for gold members
cyclindk  +   149d ago
Star Wars related?
PridedLlama  +   149d ago
Yeah, a couple of lego star wars titles and the force unleashed I think
cyclindk  +   149d ago
I wonder if there's something to all this? Serendipity at the very least, but what if... there's something more to it.

This article...

The impending release of the next Star Wars TV series, REBELS.

Upcoming Battlefront III

These "unrelated" sales to bolster fan awareness perhaps?

May the force be with us and may it also be at E3 :) with tons of games to show!
