DTOID News is filmed in front of an actual camera
Well, we got a new camera and I accidentally switched it onto "Sears Portrait Studio" mode, so sorry if I look a little bit like I'm in a porno from the late eighties. (What else is new.)

I'd like to move on, but it's not easy
After Disney shut down LucasArts, I thought I had completely given up all hope for Star Wars 1313 ever getting made. I have. But that's not to say the project can't affect me from beyond the grave. There was that story about ...
Make it happen, Nintendo and Disney
Just this morning I was pondering the similarities between Nintendo and Lucasfilm. A few hours later, and I discovered the existence of Super Smash Wars 2. It's like they read my mind!
The video parody series, construct...

But it's free to play
We love us some Rogue Squadron around these parts, but Star Wars: Attack Squadrons is not that. Wishing does not make it so. Disney Interactive announced the Area 52 Games project this morning with the trailer above and some...
Studio behind Ghostbusters and BloodRayne has closed
2013 hasn't been to kind to struggling game studios, and it appears we've got another casualty before this rocky year in gaming closes out. It is now reported that the Texas-based game studio, Terminal Reality, has shut down....

Time keeps on slipping
As reported earlier this morning, Electronic Arts won't be making any Star Wars games based on the upcoming movies as part of its licensing deal with Disney. We let out a collective sigh of relief. Granted, there are plenty o...
Mesa like dis
EA's Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen talked about Star Wars games during a presentation on Tuesday, and he made it clear they don't want to make a movie game. Jorgensen said, "We've done movie games over the years and...
Ah, this brings me back
Here's another look at the upcoming Galactic Starfighter expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, aka the first truly interesting thing I've seen out of this game in months. The familiar sights and sounds of Star Wars dogf...
I love how Emperor Palpatine looks like a pufferfish
Seeing familiar Star Wars characters in this cutesy pixelated style from NimbleBit is enough to cut down any cynicism I might've had going into Star Wars: Tiny Death Star. We've enjoyed the studio's sim games for a while now...
Super Smash Wars: A Link to the Hope
James Farr loves to take Nintendo characters and cross them over with movies. We saw his work previously with his Ghostbusters and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover, now it's Star Wars turn.
This reinterpretation sees t...
Studio would love to take on Star Wars
It's a good time to be Telltale Games. With generally positive reactions to the first episode of The Wolf Among Us and the reveal of The Walking Dead: Season Two going as one would expect, the future is looking bright. Partic...
Oops, I mean 'KOTOR'
Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is one of the most memorable games I've ever played. I can still recall the day that I picked up nonchalantly because I was a fan of Bioware's old works and Star Wars collectively, but noth...
I sense much TILT in you...
Back in February, Zen Studios released three tables based on the Star Wars series, adding to the already vast library of tables for Pinball FX2. They were fantastic, diverse, and just as feature-rich as the other tables for the game. Many believed it would be hard for the studio to match that collection.
These newest tables not only match the previous set but manage to surpass it.
A Star Wars expansion I actually want to play
As an absolute sucker for space battles in the Star Wars universe, this new digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic is looking mighty fine. I've resisted the call of BioWare's MMO even with it going free-to-play, b...

I'd play a Star Wars game starring Jaina Solo

Even an HD version of Day of the Tentacle
Kotaku too a look at how LucasArts fell apart, and among the information they dug up was details on several major projects the now defunct studio was working on. First, they were working on an Origin-like service designed to ...
And it's never coming out
Oh Star Wars 1313, you were the hope of so many Star Wars fans. With LucasArts no more, there's little hope of this Boba Fett adventure ever coming. What would it have been about? IGN was shown 15 minutes of a demo that would...
I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home
Augmenting games wherein you pilot some sort of vehicle seems like an obvious choice for an Oculus Rift project, but I've seen less examples of the Rift in a cockpit than on the battlefield in an FPS.
This is an early build ...
Join the Pork Side, Anakin
I don't get the widespread outrage over so called "casual," simple-minded games. I can spend an afternoon plugging away at the most time-consuming and complex RPG imaginable, and if Angry Birds is thrown in every now and then, so be it.
Yes, I'm reviewing an Angry Birds game. Deal with it.
Hahahahahahahahha; taking on risks with a gun
Electronic Arts is a risk taker. A boundary pusher. Indeed, EA Games chief Patrick Soderlund, speaking to MCV, apparently, "points to Star Wars and Mirror’s Edge 2 as proof the firm is still willing to take risks on ne...
Those angry birds won't quit
Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine in the Star Wars films), wants you to "Join the Pork Side" in Angry Birds Star Wars 2. Set to drop on September 19 for iOS, Android, and Windows Phones, it'll be a $0.99 app -- on Android, th...
'People don't want another Battlefield with Star Wars graphics'
Concerns about where DICE will take Star Wars: Battlefront have been expressed before, and with little to go on outside of a vague "probably in summer 2015" launch window, I can absolutely see why. Even if the studio has a pr...
The Destructoid Show sleeps through its alarm sometimes
Hey everybody! I'm wearing a really stupid shirt, it must be Friday!
