Dismemberment. We've all done it, but Lucasfilm have reportedly forbade the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order developers from letting players chop off limbs too jediciously. In the trailers, gameplay footage and behind closed doors demo we've seen so far, all limbs have remained attached. The internet is aghast, even though developers Respawn Entertainment have stated that limb removal will be reserved for critical plot moments.

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Feature: It's like a pen knife, but a laser

The mundane use of a lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the best thing about E3 so far

Listen, I’ll level with you, I am struggling this year. My hype train cannot currently build up steam. If I were to place myself on Matt and Brendan’s Cheerer-to-Jeerer E3 corporate Kinsey scale of awfulness, I am currently at a “1”: predominantly jeer, only incidentally cheer. Think the “What a piece of work is man?” monologue from Hamlet, but if it were about games instead…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order release date, trailer, everything we know

For the longest time, we didn't know anything about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, other than who it's being made by and the release date.

Over the past weekend, coinciding with the trailer for the last instalment of the third trilogy of films, a separate trailer was uploaded…

The hero in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is boring but his robot back-pal isn’t

The Jedi from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is bland, but he has a cute robo-backpack and cuts up Stormtroopers real good. Those are my three main takeaways from my 25 minute peek at Respawn Entertainment's upcoming action RPG. He's a nasty one, that Cal Kestis.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order shows you can shoot a man with his own laserbeam

It seems Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order understands that the best part of Star Wars is wee robots making silly noises, going by the thirteen-minute gameplay vid Electronic Arts just blasted out at their E3 event. We play some dull lad who looks like a photofit of a minor member of the English royal family, which I suppose is to be expected, but our Jedi-in-training…

The Cheerer and the Jeerer – EA’s livestream at E3 as it happened

Brendan: We are in Los Angeles, Matt! And we are doing a fun new thing. We're going to liveblog the heck out of these press conferences, but with a twist. One of us can only be enthusiastic, positive and cheery, no matter what comes up. And the other can only be snarky, grumpy and critical. Who would you like to be today? The cheerer or…

Respawn’s Star Wars game is Jedi: Fallen Order

That mysterious boldly-going game from Titanfall developers Respawn Entertainment is named Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, EA confirmed during their E3 pressblast today, and it'll launch next year. Respawn CEO Vince Zampella didn't have much to say about the game, beyond the obvious that we'll get to play as a Jedi and swing a glowstick as we delve into the past, somewhere between Episodes 3…
