  1. The force is strong with this one. Star Wars Battlefront 2 was intended to show officially at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida April 13-16. However, someone with access to the trailer ahead of time leaked the trailer onto the video hosting service Vimeo, presumably because leaked videos take a bit longer to be taken down on that platform. The original upload is no longer available, but the trailer has since been scattered to the wind and picked up by the larger internet. As of right now, you can view the trailer on numerous YouTube channels, like the one below. There are a lot of exciting things about this teaser trailer, despite its short length. There are strong hints that this sequel might include space battles - possibly along the same lines as the previous Battlefront 2 on the PlayStation 2, which featured massive ship-to-ship combat combined with ground combat inside those ships. New hero characters from different eras were also shown fighting in the trailer. Notably the teaser depicts the opening moments of a duel between Darth Maul and Yoda. Rey and Kylo Ren from The Force Awakens also make brief appearances, letting us know that the entire Star Wars universe is fair game to appear in this sequel. That kind of fan service has really been the bread and butter of the Battlefront series. Battlefront 2 will be releasing with a story campaign, something many players wished to see in its predecessor. The story seems like it will follow a soldier for the Empire in a post-Return of the Jedi galaxy. The second Death Star has been destroyed along with the Emperor and the Rebel Alliance has beaten back the Empire's fleet. Various locations are shown in the trailer and seem to indicate that battles at Starkiller Base, Jakku, Hoth, and other film locations are in store - no surprises there. The main downside to this leaked trailer is that it gives no context to the systems that will back up these locations. Will Galactic Conquest return? Will bot play help bolster servers that aren't terribly busy? Are the game mode offerings going to be more robust? I suppose we will have to wait to see if the official reveal in the coming days contains more information. View full article
  2. You might have noticed headlines today blaring about how BioWare was going to reboot their beloved Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic franchise. Going from some of the articles, you'd think that this new version was going to be completely redone in the Frostbite Engine and also spontaneously manifest unending supplies of pizza. Sadly, that rumor never had much substance to it. The rumor originated from some words uttered by Liam Robertson, who runs Unseen64. On the show, Roberston discussed revelations from his connections at BioWare Austin, saying: I’ve learned now that [BioWare Austin is] pretty much now exclusively working on Star Wars games and they’re going to be doing that for the indefinite future. What they’re currently working on right now—and I have this on good authority—is a sort of remake/revival of Knights of the Old Republic. I don’t know when this is set to come out, but it has been in development for a little while now. According to Kotaku, that information just isn't accurate, or at least it is only partially correct. BioWare's Austin studio actually did prototype a revamped Knights of the Old Republic; the only problem is that the project never went any further than that. It's not in development and hasn't been greenlit by the higher ups at BioWare. Revamped KotOR isn't happening. Liam Roberston released a statement earlier today on the issue: Going to hold my hands up here - I think I just misheard some of the Austin stuff when I was talking on Skype, so I may have misspoke there. There’s also the element that I had no notes in front of me and just sort of rambled on from memory. I did not expect these few select statements to blow up (oops). I’m used to having the opportunity to just release follow-up notices on the Patreon with any updates and corrections. My bad there. Let me clarify that I don’t think KOTOR’s a current project. From the same people I learned about Dylan from, I did hear that they prototyped a KOTOR revival at Austin a while back. I believe it may have evolved into something else since then or fizzled out since then. I’m still confident Austin is doing something Star Wars related though and I’m confident in that. I actually did know that they were contributing towards Dylan since I originally found out about it when I was researching Austin’s Shadow Realms, so if I said exclusively, then that was admittedly a mistake. However, what is happening at BioWare Austin is work on a new IP for the studio. It's rumored to be a game along similar to Bungie's Destiny series. The code-name for the project has been confirmed to be Dylan, something Liam Robertson's sources also corroborated. Dylan went into development shortly after the cancellation of BioWare's last attempt at a new IP, Shadow Realms. Whatever it turns out to be, Dylan should be shown at E3 later this year.

  4. It is easy to forget that BioWare took a bold risk when they launched their untested, original IP as an Xbox 360 exclusive back in 2007. The RPG genre had never truly veered into uncharted territory with a mainstream release as with a third-person shooter hybrid. On top of that, it was set in an unknown universe that the marketing team could easily have over-inflated to generate hype only to fall victim to the backlash (remember the cautionary tale of Advent Rising?). However, what made Mass Effect special was that it actually managed to live up to the hype. It worked. It had choices that engaged players. It was full of unique and interesting piece of universe-building and memorable characters. It delivered the sci-fi adventure some people had been waiting their entire lives to see in a video game for the first time. Almost a decade later with a new entry in the franchise releasing this week, does the original Mass Effect stand as not merely a good game, but one of the best games period? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.

A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it! If you want to have your opinion heard on air, follow the show on Twitter and participate in the weekly polls: @BestGamesPeriod New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday

  7. Speaking with IGN, J.J. Abrams, known for his work on the revamp of Star Trek and Star Wars, acknowledged that the Hollywood adaptation of Portal was "still very much in development" along with an adaptation of Half-Life. Not only that, Abrams confirmed that a more substantive announcement concerning the Portal film could be expected in the near future. Abrams said that he and his people are still in communication with the Valve team. "We have a meeting coming up next week with Valve, we're very active, I'm hoping that there will be a Portal announcement fairly soon," Abrams said. Though pressed for more details, Abrams gave an expectedly vague response that merely hinted that there were some interesting ideas being bandied about the writer's room. Nothing is really known at this point about either the Portal or Half-Life films except that, apparently, they are still very much alive and well despite virtual silence since their initial announcement at DICE 2013.

  13. DICE has announced that the second bundle of downloadable content for their Star Wars shooter will be heading to the gassy planet of Bespin this month. Season pass holders will have access to the Bespin pack on June 21, while non-pass holders will have to wait a couple weeks to dig into the new content. The developers are aiming to bring back some of the scale that many felt was missing from the first batch of DLC. On top of that commitment, players will be able to blast around Cloud City as Lando Calrissian as well as the bounty hunter Dengar, best known for being lampooned on Robot Chicken. Two new blasters and some additional maps have been stated to be on the way as well, though DICE has remained tight-lipped on what those maps will contain. Of course this news comes in advance of EA's pre-E3 press conference on Sunday, at which time we will probably know more. Though the publisher will not be at E3 proper, it is throwing its own event several blocks away, overlapping with E3 itself. Perhaps we might even hear something about the Star Wars Battlefront sequel that EA has stated is in development next week? View full article

  16. Hey everybody! First of all, happy Star Wars day: May the fourth be with you! Truth be told, I've only seen the first one (or I guess the third one in the sequence, from what I've been told), but it was just as iconic as everyone said it would be. I hear Luke and princess Leia are related? Gross. Secondly, I want to make sure you all have some constant connection with the cause, whether that's visiting the hospital, knowing the stories of our Champion kiddos, or sharing some cool videogame-related hospital news. This article came out on Monday describing the exciting new ways scientists and docs are partnering to test for tuberculosis: http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/05/02/473557723/can-an-online-game-help-create-a-better-test-for-tb It's a great read that explains the whole concept, but basically they are making the tests for tuberculosis into games and puzzles to help diagnoses and treatments. If you have a few minutes, check out the game site: http://www.eternagame.org/web/ MIND. BLOWN. #science Third: Some of you may have already seen this floating around, but in case you haven't - Bee the Swarm is donating to Extra Life through a little friendly competition! If you're into high scores and winning donations (who isn't?!), check out the attached picture of all the details. Fourth (we have to have 4 things on May the 4th!) - If you love all things Extra Life and would like to be a part of our Denver Guild leadership team, please email me at kthomas@childrenscoloradofoundation.org. We have some really exciting opportunities coming up, but I want to make sure we have some strong folks at the helm of our Denver ship along with a group of motivated participants! Fifth: Check out the last post in the Denver page (below) to learn about a cool partnership we want to set up with the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown! Seriously, that's awesome. Everyone should want to do this. That's all I got for now - email or reply here with any additions or questions. "Do or do not. There is no try." DO go play games and spread the word about Extra Life. (deep, right?) Kacie
  17. Is anyone playing this game? I just picked up the Force Awakens Core set at PAX East and got the Tie Advanced and Millennium Falcon expansions. What are your opinions? What do you like about it? Not Like about it? Do you favor any certain ships/cards over others? Are there particular expansions that you feel are necessary/unnecessary?

    Folks, We will not have a table presence at Supemegafest, however, this is fun con to go and just be at. Many celebrities, many collectibles, and much cosplay. Tickets available at the link and at the door. Supermegafest
  19. People have Star Wars on the brain for some reason. To honor that popular trend, Daniel and Jack present the Star Wars games they believe should be considered one of the best games period: Dark Forces and Knights of the Old Republic. Jeremy goes AWOL due to a Ceti eel infection (name that movie!). Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it (though this week's is delayed due to technical difficulties)!
