I guess I'll be able to immediately recognise the Dark Forces box art until the day I die

Hey cats, it’s hip to like Star Wars again rather than feeling dirty every time it’s mentioned. Of course, once JJ Abrams releases two hours of lens flare and nonsensical deus ex machinas it will be deeply uncool to like Star Wars again, so make hay while the sun shines. Star Wars videogames certainly are: first we get GoG re-releasing a bunch of previously out-of-print titles, and how the latest Humble Bundle is all about games from A Long Time Ago. For whatever you want to pay, you get KOTOR, Jedi Knight 3 and Dark Forces, which ain’t a bad set. There are more games if you want to pay more, but Republic credits are no good out here. … [visit site to read more]

Galactic Battlegrounds somehow looks both better and worse than it did at the time

Here is a question: do you like Star Wars? My mate Ian says it’s really good, so I should probably watch it sometime. Then again he also said Mad Men was good and that was just people in old suits frowning at each other. Apparently there are some videogames based on this ‘Star Wars’ too. Given it’s such an obscure movie I guess they’re boring art games in which all you can do is like walk and think and rubbish stuff like that? I bet there are no laser guns or evil cyborgs at all, so I won’t bother playing them. I mean, listen to the names: ‘X-Wing Versus TIE Fighter’, ‘The Old Republic II’. The first one sounds like it’s something to with equations, the second one sounds like it’s an Antiques Roadshow spin-off. Honestly, why do they even bother making these not-games for people who don’t like fun?

Anyway, like six of these old hipster indie games have just been re-released on ‘Good Old Games.’ I guess that’s an ironic title or something? They are old though – in fact, three of them are so old that they’ve never been released for download before. I guess the hipsters won’t like them now they’ve gone mainstream. … [visit site to read more]

In one of the stealthiest launches in some time, Aspyr Media has released a port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic today for iPad. The original BioWare game came out on the Xbox almost 10 years ago in July 2003.

The new app lets you learn more than 40 Force powers, travel to Tatooine and the Wookiee homeworld, customize characters, and travel between planets in your ship, the Ebon Hawk. Yep, everything you could do in the original game. As a bit of a refresher, the game takes place about 4,000 years before the creation of the Republic and involves the hunt for Sith masters Darth Malak and Darth Revan.

The game is available on the App Store for $9.99 only for the iPad.
