Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic film being written by Altered Carbon showrunner

It's still early days yet, but there's a Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic film in development. As reported by Buzzfeed last night, Laeta Kalogridis (Writer on Altered Carbon, Shutter Island, Alita: Battle Angel among others) is nearly done on a script for the first in a possible KOTOR film trilogy. I'm surprised that the whole Old Republic setting hadn't been tapped for any film…

Have You Played… Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis?

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis was one of the classic LucasArts point-and-click adventures that didn’t have the typical team at the helm. It was a SCUMM engine game that felt like Indiana Jones 4, because there is no fourth Indiana Jones film, absolutely none, finished with The Last Crusade, and nothing else came after.

Lawyers from Lucasfilm have shut down Apeiron, a fan remake of BioWare's 2003 RPG Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic (one of the best PC games, according to us). It's little surprise that The Suits have stamped this out, though of course it is a bummer - and doubly so because Poem Studios put three years of hope and work into Apeiron before it…

Republic Commando is on sale and better than you remember

I'm not sure how rare this experience is, but I played A LOT of Star Wars games as a kid without having seen the Star Wars movies. They not only laid the groundwork of my later-fandom, but they also told these side stories that were (occasionally) so well done that I wound up underwhelmed by the films themselves. You know what? Typing all that out,…

Imperial: Revisiting X-Wing And TIE Fighter

To commemorate the digital release of classic Lucasarts games X-Wing and TIE Fighter [Steam or GOG for the best versions here and here], we commissioned Rob Zacny to take a trip down memory lane and into the laser-singed spaces between the stars. He came back with extensive thoughts as to the quality of the games, and their place in Star Wars lore and legend.

Disney Acquires All Of Lucasfilm – Including LucasArts

Star Wars' universe is ruled by an all-powerful elderly man who's known for controlling the masses with unspeakable technological horrors and shooting lightning out of his fingertips. I'm talking, of course, about George Lucas. However, in the most exciting twist the franchise has seen since "I am your father," he's now mostly out of the picture. Disney has officially purchased Lucasfilm - all technologies, IPs,…
