But at least it's free
Oh thank goodness, more content for Star Wars Battlefront.
While The Battle of Jakku hasn't seen a wide release yet (that's happening on December 8), the free new DLC is now available for folks who pre-ordered the game.
Star Wars Battlefront and Uncharted
PlayStation 4 bundles didn't seem too prevalent or kill-worthy this deals season (though it's possible I just missed them all), but it looks like Sony is formalizing that $300 Uncharted Trilogy bundle and adding a $300 Star Wars Battlefront PS4 bundle for a couple more weeks of December.
The price will hold December 5 through Dec. 19, according to the PlayStation Blog.
The first wave of free Star Wars Battlefront DLC debuts tomorrow for players who pre-ordered the game, while everyone else can get it a week later on December 8.
As we've heard a few times now, the Battle of Jakku is made up ...
He seems like a reasonable man
Within the first thirty seconds of the video linked below, Breaking Benjamin founder Benjamin Burnley admits to punching his Xbox One to the point where there is damage visible on the console. This comes on the heels of a muc...
'Darth Trevor and Michael Kenobi'
I can't believe that Grand Theft Auto V machinima is still a thing, over two years later, but that's what a robust PC release and editing tools with do. It helps that most of the videos I've seen are actually good, like...
And it doesn't involve Luke or Vader!
Star Wars Battlefront isn't quite what I hoped it would be, but I keep coming back to it for a chance to see moments of pure, unscripted delight. It usually doesn't take long.
This hilarious encounter captured by YouTube user Nick Nixon is a great example of just how goofy this game can get.
Use the expensive toys, Luke
Disney Infinity 3.0 is still chugging, thanks to the upcoming Force Awakens film tie-in Play Set that will launch next month. This is the second to last set that we know of that will be launching for Infinity. The ...
Alongside the season pass content
After launching with no single-player content and only 12 multiplayer maps, EA has announced what sort of things to expect from Star Wars Battlefront’s coming DLC. The first bit of new content will be the free Battle of...
I'm far enough into Star Wars Battlefront's progression system that I have most of the unlocks I genuinely want (aside from the best Rebel and Empire characters, which is the final carrot on the stick). I've played every mode...
Probably just a PR stunt
2006 just hit me like a brick, because until today I had no idea Breaking Benjamin were still a band. I used to be massively into their music, and even looking back at it now it’s alright. Pretty much entirely cheesy a...
So that's what the helmet's for
Stormtroopers are kind of a clumsy lot. For supposedly elite soldiers, they sure do miss often with their blasters. Oh yeah, a bunch of Ewoks outsmarted and defeated them, too. It seems like if Darth Vader wants something do...
As old school as the Force
I'm really surprised that Super Star Wars is getting a re-release in 2015. No, not because "it's old," but rather the fact that it's an exceedingly unforgiving retro game, which doesn't really gel with the hand-holding landscape of modern gaming.
While some elements haven't aged all that well, it's still very much a classic.
A week from Black Friday? Hmm...
It's Tuesday and it's another big release day. If you've digested all the Star Wars Battlefront reviews (e.g. this one here) and you still want in on the action, particularly on the PS4, then here's a worthwhile pre-Black Friday deal for you to gander at.
Ready are you? What know you of ready?
Star Wars has been a part of my reality ever since my parents showed me the first film on VHS. From there I attended the release of every movie in the series, including the re-releases of the original trilogy -- if you'r...
The bloody thing's only just come out!
Star Wars: Battlefront is out today in the US (Chris was kind of “meh” about it), and there’s still a whole ridiculously expensive season pass of content to come out. But don’t let that almost £1...
The SNES classic
As a reminder, Super Star Wars will hit the PSN this week (PS4 and Vita with Cross-Buy). It was part of a classic trilogy for the SNES, and was basically a re-telling of A New Hope, through the veil of an action pla...
It's a Star Wars holiday no matter what
As Star Wars Battlefront approaches the deals are actually drying up. We've seen the PC digital version go for as much as 25% off, but now the best deal for PC is a measly 17% off at DLGamer dropping the price from $60 to onl...
Maps, modes, characters
The season pass for Star Wars Battlefront is $50. We had a basic understanding of what the package entails, and as of today, we have a slightly better idea what to expect.
Here's the latest summary from EA:
4 expansion packs...
Including EA's recent one for Star Wars
As you may have heard, major publishers often run "review events" for big games, seeking to gather up members of the press into one location. These events are located in highly controlled environments, with near-perfect setti...
EA Access impressions
I wasn't all that smitten with the Star Wars Battlefront beta, but today the full game launches for EA Early Access members, with a 10-hour time limit caveat. Now the game is free of content locks, with all modes available for play in addition to the offline component, which features split-screen support and bots.
The final build hasn't really changed my mind all that much.
Unless there are some surprises
It's only one week until an estimated 13 million players will hop into Star Wars Battlefront and contribute to the eternal struggle of good versus evil. Regardless of which side you're on, there will be plenty of ways to...
May the PS4 be with you
The Darth Vader-themed PlayStation 4 DualShock controller will be available in Europe from November 18, 2015, and November 19 in the UK.
Sony confirmed the news on the official EU and UK PlayStation twitter accounts.
Comparatively speaking, of course
In a sea of 40 and 50GB game installs, Star Wars Battlefront flies under the radar. It defies what we've come to expect from a triple-A title. I bet the other games think it's a traitor and call it Rebel Scum.
Or if you like vanishing from clothes
In a week's time, a lot of people will be transported to the battlefields of Star Wars Battlefront. EA is expecting around 13 million, in fact. All those folks living out the Star Wars fantasy before shuffling off to th...
Star Wars: First Assault
There's Star Wars: Battlefront III. There's Star Wars 1313. There's even that Darth Maul game. But no one mourns Star Wars: First Assault.
According to the YouTube description, "This was a tech beta ran on Xbox Live a while ...
And possibly more, you tourist
Most everyone who is interested in Star Wars Battlefront has a good idea by now if they're buying it. The open beta last month served as a nice test run in that sense. We've all had an opportunity to see what we're gett...
$5/month for 5 days in advance
If you're dropping the five bones per month (get you, Mr. Moneybags; some of us need that $5 for carrots to make soup) on EA Access (Xbox One only), you'll get to play 10 total hours of the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront.
Looks pretty cool
In the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there was a striking shot of Rey speeding past a long-abandoned Star Destroyer. The scene takes place on a desert planet, Jakku, and the massive ship crash landed...
That is a ridiculous number
Electronic Arts isn't trying to be Greedo greedy, just ambitious when it says that it expects Star Wars Battlefront to move 13 million copies. Maybe realistic, too. The Star Wars maelstrom of fandom is at a fev...
Halo primed for big sales
Pump the space breaks
Microsoft must be pretty happy that for the second year in a row it has more big exclusives in its holiday lineup (what with Uncharted 4 delayed and the paid timed exclusivity for Rise of the Tomb Raider) than nearest competi...
