If only there were more games like Star Wars: Republic Commando

Today, Alec Meer wipes the galactic dust off Star Wars: Republic Commando. Nothing new now, but just one of many ways in which Republic Commando was ahead of its time—and yet was forgotten. This is, for all the grit, pace and total lack of mythical/ religious mumbo-jumbo, Star Wars, and all the ad-hoc derring-do that entails. Puzzling over hotkeys or agonising at length over whether sniping or grenading would be best wouldn’t be Star Wars. Doing the right thing in death isn’t something that Repu

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is adding Anakin Skywalker to the roster

Anakin Skywalker, grumpy Jedi and soon-to-be Sith Lord, is heading to Star Wars Battlefront 2. The previous planet-specific default outfits will still be available, however, and you'll be able to grab them as free unlocks. The two phases of clone troopers are being separated, so they can be selected individually, regardless of the battle. The latter phase has a respirator and a few other minor changes, but both phases look pretty similar. They were Anakin's unit in the Clone Wars, and continued

The Force is referenced 161 times in Star Wars and you can watch every single one in this huge supercut

The Force is as synonymous with Star Wars as lightsabers and Skywalkers, yet have you ever stopped to think just how often it’s mentioned?

Visceral’s canceled Star Wars game “was a lot farther along than people ever got a glimpse of”

The Visceral Star Wars game, Project Ragtag, Uncharted meets Star Wars. As if millions of voices suddenly cried out, saying "We'd really like another great Star Wars game one of these years." As far as rose-colored memories of the LucasArts days go, there was a particular appeal to EA's Project Ragtag: a big-budget, cinematic action adventure game following a charismatic hero. "Even so, we were making a game; people have said it was an Uncharted Star Wars. "Very different from what we were doing

Other PC classics that deserve the Resi 2 remake treatment

And so, ignoring that soft reboot in 2010, I'd love to see the first Aliens vs. I'd love to see a new version, keeping the same story, detective elements, and action set-pieces, but shifted to three dimensions. Star Wars: Knights of the Old RepublicWhen I think of the Star Wars games that have come before, and what we have now, I despair a little. BioWare's RPG is still one of the best Star Wars spin-offs ever, with brilliant characters, a memorable story, and loads of great locations. Star Wars
