Review: Starhawk photo
Review: Starhawk
by Darren Nakamura

When Starhawk was announced as the follow-up to 2007's PlayStation 3 exclusive Warhawk, cynical gamers wondered if it would be nothing more than Warhawk in space. Going into this completely cold, I was expecting another generic space marine story. Fortunately for Starhawk, it bucks both of those expectations.

After finishing the single-player campaign, I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out, and was eager to check out the multiplayer, expecting it to be an excellent tactical experience.

Unfortunately, that's when Starhawk deviated from my expectations for a second time.

Get Warhawk in your Starhawk (if you are European) photo
Get Warhawk in your Starhawk (if you are European)
by Fraser Brown

Europe gets a lot of things, like political extremism and unnecessary languages, like French. What we don't get a lot of, however, is love from the industry. We usually have to wait for the Japanese and Americans to get their games before we do, so it only makes sense that when we get something you don't, we make a big deal out of it. We've been doing it a lot recently, what with all the JRPGs that we've been getting long before our American brethren get a taste. Indeed, here in Edinburgh we have a new holiday centered around celebrating The Last Story and our ability to play it before you. 

Now we get to do it again, albeit on a smaller scale. Some might call us fickle, but those are the people who aren't getting a free copy of Warhawk when they purchase any version of Starhawk. This is the PSOne version I'm talking about, not the more recent remake. The classic will be added to your download list, and from there you can relive the origins of the franchise. But don't fret, my cousins across the Atlantic, if you get the special edition version of the game, you can join us. It's a GameStop exclusive. Ewww.

Cowboys are back in space with Starhawk

If you grew up during the late eighties or early nineties, space cowboys were the coolest, most badass dudes ever. Cartoons like BraveStarr, Saber Riders and Cowboy Bebop took the previously overused elements of cowboys, hor...

Impressions: Space combat in Starhawk
by Jamie McGinn

What could be better than jumping into a giant mech, blowing up some buildings, then transforming into a jet and reigning death down on your enemies from the sky? How about doing all of that in space!

Lightbox unveiled the long-awaited space combat in Starhawk for the first time at gamescom in Cologne. If you were expecting it to be Warhawk in space, you wouldn't be far off.

Interview: Talking pagans and Starhawk with Dylan Jobe photo
Interview: Talking pagans and Starhawk with Dylan Jobe
by Allistair Pinsof

After its unveil in May and strong showing at E3, Starhawk is once again hiding within the walls of LightBox’s Austin office.

Thankfully, LightBox’s office is only a block away from Austin’s lively bar scene on Sixth Street, making for the perfect spot to coax new details out of LightBox president Dylan Jobe -- an unusually cheerful, generous guy who genuinely cares about the game he is working on. 

For those of you who missed our previous coverage of Starhawk, I’ll summarize Dale North’s excellent and lengthy preview. It’s the follow-up to PS3 multiplayer-only shooter Warhawk with a new focus on a single-player campaign and base building. The game’s combination of real-time strategy elements with team-based third-person shooting promises a refreshing change of pace from other shooters on the market. Personally, I can't wait for it. I miss the days of team-based games where anything seemed possible, and Starhawk's "Build and Battle" system opens the doors to advance strategy and silly shenanigans. 

Over a couple beers, we discuss Trenched, the PSN outage, Ladyhawke, Pagan theorists and Austin, Texas.
