This is copied from thread II, so some of it was broken.

The comic series was published by Dark Horse Comics, and acts as a prequel to the video games. Knights of the Old Republic takes place four thousand years prior to the Star Wars films, when Darth Malak – Darth Revan's apprentice – has unleashed a Sith armada against the Republic. The Sith Lords takes place five years after the events of Knights of the Old Republic, in a time when the Jedi have been nearly exterminated by the Sith. The Old Republic takes place 300 years after the previous two games, shortly after the establishment of a tenuous peace between the re-emergent Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic comic book series takes places around 3,964 BBY, the Sith era, approximately eight years prior to the story of the video game series.

The series focuses primarily on Kyle Katarn, a former Imperial officer who ultimately becomes a member of the New Republic and an instructor at the Jedi Academy. The Jedi Knight series began in 1995 with the release of Star Wars: Dark Forces. This was followed in 1997 by Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, in which Katarn learns the ways of a Jedi. In 1998, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith was released as an expansion pack for Dark Forces II, this time giving the player control of Mara Jade as well as Katarn. In 2002, Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast was added to the series. Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy followed in 2003. Jedi Academy was the first game in the series where the player does not control Katarn at any point, although he is featured prominently in the story.

This is in contrast to the Star Wars: X-Wing series, also by LucasArts, which were space combat simulation video games. The series deals with the Rebel Alliance unit, Rogue Squadron, who, under the command of Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles, use starfighters to engage and defeat the Galactic Empire. The games are set during episodes A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi and recreate the battles that take place during those films, notably the Battle of Hoth, which is in every Rogue Squadron game in one form or another.

It consists of a video game released in September 2008, a second video game released in October 2010, a tie-in novel, action figures, a comic book, a reference book, a role-playing game supplement, and a book on the making of the game. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed tells the story of Darth Vader's secret apprentice, code-named "Starkiller" but born Galen Marek. Set between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, the story explores the aftermath of the Great Jedi Purge as well as the rise of Darth Vader. The events of The Force Unleashed are "pivotal" in Darth Vader's history and development as a character and offer illumination into other characters from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.

Set between Episode III and Episode IV, it focuses on the fledgling struggle between the Empire and the Rebels. In October 2006, an expansion titled Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption was released. It adds the "Zann Consortium" as a third faction in addition to a number of new features.

The game is set during the events of the Clone Wars that started at the climax of the movie Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. In the game, the player takes command of a Clone commando team, made up of elite Clone troopers. These Clone commandos have been specially bred at the clone factories on Kamino. The commando team travels to various locations in the Star Wars universe, including Kashyyyk, Geonosis, and the derelict spacecraft Prosecutor. About two years pass from Delta Squad's first mission to the end of the game. [img]http://gamesfirst.com/previews/jeremyk/bounty_hunter/logo.jpg[/img] Star Wars: Bounty Hunter was developed and published by LucasArts, released in 2002. The game was re-released on the PlayStation Store on April 28, 2015. In the game, players play as the bounty hunter Jango Fett, featured in the 2002 film Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, to which this game serves as a prequel. Both Temuera Morrison and Leeanna Walsman reprise their roles from the film as Jango Fett and Zam Wesell, respectively. During the game, it is revealed why Jango Fett was chosen as the template for the Grand Army of the Republic, how Boba Fett, his cloned "son" was born, and how Jango acquired Slave I.

The original idea was to create a story set between the films The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi (a time no Star Wars novel had explored before), and to explore all commercial possibilities of a full motion picture release, without actually making the film. Several products were released, including a novel, a Junior novelization, comic book series, video games, trading cards, a soundtrack, role-playing games, toy figurines, vinyl dolls, a series of Micro Machines toys, statuettes, model kits, a series of action figures and vehicles, and so on. The entire Shadows of the Empire project, along with The Force Unleashed, though not technically a film, can be collectively considered the closest project to a film in the Star Wars official continuity, without actually being a film. This story is significant in that Lucas reportedly said he would have made a story like this into a movie if he had had the time and effort to do so back in the early 1980s. The main plotline is told in Steve Perry's novel, Shadows of the Empire, published by Bantam Books. It introduces Prince Xizor, the alien overlord of the largest criminal organization in the galaxy. The comic book emphasizes the destiny of Boba Fett and his fellow bounty hunters, first seen in a brief scene on The Empire Strikes Back. It also tells the story of Jix, Darth Vader's assistant, who infiltrated Jabba the Hutt's gang of bikers to prevent that band's attempt to murder Luke Skywalker. The series was written by John Wagner and illustrated by Kilian Plunkett. LucasArts's Shadows of the Empire was one of the first games available for the Nintendo 64, and later for Windows. The most commercial product in the Shadows of the Empire line, the game was first released in December 1996 as an exclusive N64 title five months after the console's launch. The PC version came nearly a year later in September 1997. In the game, players control mercenary Dash Rendar in his efforts to help Luke Skywalker and rescue Princess Leia from Prince Xizor's hands.

The player took the role of a pilot of the Rebel Alliance, and, in later games, the Galactic Empire. To complete the games, players must complete missions such as simple dogfights with opposition starfighters, reconnaissance and inspection tasks, escort duty for freighters or capital ships, or attacks on larger opposition ships. In addition to dogfighting designed to resemble the free-wheeling duels of World War I, the games also offered the challenge of managing power resources and wingmen, and using weapons effectively. [img]http://k44.kn3.net/B50284AE3.png[/img] Star Wars: Battlefront is a series of first- and third-person shooter video games based on the Star Wars films. Players take the role of soldiers in either of two opposing armies in different time periods of the Star Wars universe. The series was launched in 2004 by LucasArts with Star Wars: Battlefront, developed by Pandemic Studios for LucasArts. The game received positive reviews and sold well. In 2005 Pandemic developed a sequel, Star Wars: Battlefront II, which was also critically and commercially successful. The games were followed by Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron (2007) and Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron (2009) for handheld consoles and Star Wars Battlefront: Mobile Squadrons for mobile devices. LucasArts made several attempts to get a third major Battlefront game off the ground but no projects were released before The Walt Disney Company's acquisition of LucasArts. Subsequently, EA DICE acquired a license to develop a new game, titled Star Wars Battlefront which was released on November 17 2015. And then there's the new one released November 17, 2017, I'm sure you heard about it. KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE ARE NOT ALL OF THE STAR WARS GAMES, THERE ARE STILL PLENTY MORE NOT MENTIONED, SUCH AS: - Super Star Wars - Jedi Power Battles - Racer/Racer Revenge - tie-in games - LEGO adaptations AND MANY MORE Further shit: for those that play on the Pee-Cee, Star Wars games available on Steam can be found [url=http://store.steampowered.com/search/?term=star+wars]here[/url], and games available on GOG can be found [url=https://www.gog.com/games?sort=bestselling&search=star%20wars&page=1]here[/url].

I would have personally titled it "Revenge of the Microtransactions", sounds better imo, since it is one word.
That image of Star Wars X-Wing is of the miniatures game :v: [t]http://www.vgmpf.com/Wiki/images/7/71/Star_Wars_-_X-Wing_vs._TIE_Fighter_-_W32_-_Title.png[/t]
EXPERIENCE POOOOWAAAAAAH! [IMG]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/224010389678063618/388712716682002442/BF2_UNLIMTED_POWER.png?width=994&height=560[/IMG] This was from the other day where I made a bunch of rebels on the first phase of GA Death Star 2 miserable. Chain lightning for everyone! There are times I forget about the shitty situation surrounding EA's Battlefront 2 and I end up genuinely having fun while playing. But then I get matches with lag, afkers and getting curb stomped by the other team who seem infinitely more coordinated (be it GA, Heroes vs Villains or even SA...seriously I think people have found a way to afk Starfighter Assault now), and to get 300 credits or less after all that pain and the fun just saps away. If they are making changes to the game, progression and all, I really hope it's soon...

I don't want everyone else to figure out how insanely good he is. Today I went on a 41 killstreak on Theed and also single-handedly saved my team on both Takodana and the Death Star. A tip for the last phase on the Death Star is to stand on the walkway above the right terminal and rain thunder down upon anyone trying to take it. They got it in the end by piling bodies on it faster than I could slaughter them, taking it inch by inch. But by then they had lost too many reinforcements to take the other side.

I imagine he'd be incredible during the first stage of Endor as well(before the rebels take the computer room anyway).

It's great fun to jump up to the cliff and take out those pesky snipers. After that, the map gets too linear and it's hard to see where enemies are. Last time I tried it out I kept getting chased away by a really good Rey player. Does anyone know how she's able to go invisible on the radar? Is it part of the Mind Trick ability? Can't find any info about it anywhere.
Not sure how many of noticed, but heroes are cheaper on battle points on maps set in the era they're from. So Rey is cheaper in ST maps for example. But heroes that appeared in multiple trilogies, like Chewie and Yoda, have the same prices shared between the eras. Yoda's star card art is all set Yavin 4 hm.

Meanwhile you can get Leia, Han, Chewie, and Rey for 6,000 making it easier for the resistance.
I can't believe how downright useless Vader is. I force choke people - it "misses" I throw my saber - it "misses" Saber users are so fucking useless.
Force Choke is good if you're near pits you can drop them in, that's about it.
I had a very good run as Vader earlier. Not Palpy/Maul good but still better than usual. Then my abilities and jump stopped working and that was it...

This is allegedly a Cancelled EA game. [video=youtube;jV0VNDbqILY]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jV0VNDbqILY[/video]
[QUOTE=Tuskin;52965784]This is allegedly a Cancelled EA game. [video=youtube;jV0VNDbqILY]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jV0VNDbqILY[/video][/QUOTE] I realize this is just a pitch and such, but I couldn't help but notice that the music was from the recent Battlefronts, as were Han and Boba's lines, and Luke's and the other voices sounded familiar, like they were voice clips taken from X-Wing Alliance.
well the models are from Battlefront as well, and could be on the Frostbite engine [editline]11th December 2017[/editline] The Accusor was in X-Wing Alliance, so you could be right.
[QUOTE=Tuskin;52965784]This is allegedly a Cancelled EA game. [video=youtube;jV0VNDbqILY]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jV0VNDbqILY[/video][/QUOTE] Gives the vibes of the old x-wing games but then mixed in with a bit of Elite. Imagine Elite but SW, fuck that shit would sell like hotcakes.
One of the rebel ships is the Redemption. I'm pretty sure that's from a mission in the first X-Wing.
[QUOTE=Tuskin;52965784]This is allegedly a Cancelled EA game. [video=youtube;jV0VNDbqILY]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jV0VNDbqILY[/video][/QUOTE] Makes me want Starfighter Assault playable in Arcade even more. Not to mention a new Rogue Squadron game.
[QUOTE=Pax;52966643]One of the rebel ships is the Redemption. I'm pretty sure that's from a mission in the first X-Wing.[/QUOTE] The Redemption is the name of the medical frigate in ROTJ IIRC.

Cool. That means i have 20-30k extra credits to spend on crates. Which means I have enough to get a full blue loadout on both characters

Double Damage (Guys who made Rebel Galaxy) pitched this to EA and it went nowhere. "This is footage from a game pitch from 2016. It isn't in production, so don't get your hopes up :D" [t]https://puu.sh/yEngq/af2cf38f28.png[/t]
I know, I read the description afterwards. Plus Chaos Zero already said it was a pitch.
Harder to monetize than a painfully generic, passionless FPS, I imagine.
[QUOTE=Icy Fire;52967790]Harder to monetize than a painfully generic, passionless FPS, I imagine.[/QUOTE] That's what I'm thinking too. I want a Star Wars game that lets you control the larger starships like frigates and star destroyers similar to World of Warships, Battlestations, or Shattered Space because I think that has never been done or even attempted. But I doubt we'll get anything like that from EA without them turning it into a soulless money maker.
BF2 leaks, this is from the MP DLC, not the single player [video]https://youtu.be/BgbofxtJSas[/video] Also an image of Finn in a cave [url]http://www.imgpaste.net/image/EEKfs[/url] [editline]11th December 2017[/editline] The last official tweet that said this was deleted [video]https://twitter.com/EAStarWars/status/940370638774026245[/video]
pretty much the day before new heroes and still no idea what Finn's abilities are :( Thought we'd get a preview video of their abilities by now
Hopefully tomorrow.
I wonder if it's just going to be the stuff on the schedule or if we're going to get a huge progression change patch
[QUOTE=Ricenchicken;52968734]I wonder if it's just going to be the stuff on the schedule or if we're going to get a huge progression change patch[/QUOTE] I wouldn't personally expect something that game changing.
