Eventually changed to add a campaign
Lots of folks out there have complained about recent efforts to drop campaigns from games (Titanfall, Rainbox Six Siege), but as Did You Know Gaming points out, the concept was actually rather old. Star Wars: Battlefron...
32 decent deals
Yesterday the Steam Winter Sale went live, culminating in the year-end yuletide savings PC gamers have come to expect. Unlike previous years though, there are no flash sales or daily deals to worry about. While we're sure the...
But you can never really tell
Possibly the laziest route to garnering online favor is to take a thing the Internet likes and put it in another thing the Internet likes. There are countless examples of this all the time, but a good recent one is the Batma...
Yes, they all reviewed better
There are exactly 100 professional reviews culled on the Bloodborne Metacritic page. Of that 100, 99 are "positive" and 1 is "mixed," a lowly 7/10, which I'd suggest is still positive. Oh, so nobody dislikes this game?
Subverting spoilerphobic safeguards
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has officially hit theaters, which means everyone who cares a modicum about popular culture is booking to the theaters to experience this sweeping cultural moment before some jerk spoils the ...
None of this matters
Statistically speaking, every single person on earth will go see Star Wars: The Force Awakens this weekend (sample size: my Twitter timeline and Facebook feed). Before the main attraction begins, many of those people are...
This Friday through Monday
Well, they don't call it XP, exactly, but you know what I mean!
With Force Awakens fresh on our mind this week, Star Wars Battlefront is holding a "double score" event. Between December 18 at 1:00am Pacific and December 21 at...
Use the phone, Luke
Google has launched a cool little browser game that links up your smart phone as a controller, and pits you against a series of Stormtroopers as a Jedi. Basically, all you have to do is download or load up Chrome on your smar...
It's totally selling well, says EA
What will you be doing this weekend? EA is hoping some of you will watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens and then follow the hype train straight to Star Wars Battlefront. From now until December 21 at 10 AM Pacific, both the Sta...
What sin cost him the job?
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens opens in theaters in less than a week, and my favorite thing about the movie so far is that two of its leading men once sang a song with Justin Timberlake about not wanting to go to o...
The game isn't as dead as we thought?
Remember Star Wars 1313? Instead of being all about the Force and lightsabers, 1313 was going to be a grittier look at the Star Wars universe from the perspective of someone who was neither Jedi nor Sith: everybody’s fa...
Don't rush out all at once
Looks like there are plenty of Battlefront copies at GameStop. As part of its weekly sale, the retailer has Star Wars Battlefront on all platforms at a big fat $20 off. (That's 33% for those without a calculator handy.)
If you didn't pre-order Star Wars Battlefront, you can now download the Battle of Jakku DLC, which comes with a new map and several modes. There are still four more DLC packs coming, which will be a bit more substantial and p...
EA designed it to be 'accessible'
Electronic Arts' CFO Blake Jorgensen admitted Star Wars Battlefront's "accessible" design "may not have the depth [hardcore players] wanted in the game."

On PS4 and Xbox One titles
Every few months Best Buy will offer a Buy 2, Get 1 Free sale on pre-owned items, but today they're offering a three for two sale on brand new Xbox One and PS4 titles. A total of 274 games up for grabs in this sale including ...
Xmas present for your baldy mentor
Remember when Sony announced that there will be two $300 PlayStation 4 bundles? Well the deals are now arriving, and in fact over at eBay you can find a PS4 Battlefront bundle $10 cheaper at $289.99.
The discounted PS4 c...
Electronic Arts was "a little bit" surprised by GameStop's comments that Star Wars Battlefront had "underperformed."
As reported by Eurogamer, talking to investors, GameStop executive Tony Bartel stated that three r...
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.
