EA games hit Steam en masse today, and EA Access is coming soon

With very rare exceptions, EA have long been shy about bringing their games to Steam. But over the last year or so, the two massive firms have slowly shown signs of making amends. It started with last year's Jedi: Fallen Order, and this week saw the fruits of that partnership properly come to pass as a ton of EA games, old and new, made their…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s first patch targets slow loading

The first patch for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order after its launch on Friday arrived last night and it's not a huge one but it is handy. Probably most notable is a fix for a problem that was making the game run and load slowly for some, though a fix for bug that made dynamic resolution settings not stick will be welcome for folks who…

I find Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s recommended 32GB of RAM disturbing (Update: and now lowered)

EA published the minimum and recommended PC requirements for Respawn's upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order souls'em-up over on Origin earlier today, and for the most part it's all pretty plain sailing. All except the recommended RAM requirement, which comes in at a whopping 32GB. Is this some kind of Jedi mind trick? Update 09/10/19: Turns out, yes, it was a Jedi mind trick after…

Take a longer, more lasery look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in motion

While Lucasfilm may object to wanton limb-chopping, they can't stop Respawn from giving us a big slice of the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video today. A little under half an hour long (double shown publicly at E3), we get to see a little Uncharted-ish clambering across an AT-AT walker, some mech combat, and a lot of lightsaber stuff. We also get some extended dialogue, a…

The internet is aghast, even though developers Respawn Entertainment have stated that limb removal will be reserved for critical plot moments.

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…
