This week I put out the review for Spinnortality, a cool little management game where you run a corporation. While it didn’t have the depth needed to keep me playing for longer than I needed to for the review, I still appreciated the idea of amassing money and power by selling new products and gently nudging laws in my favour. Or, y’know, just launching an espionage mission to kill the current ruler before basically taking over the entire country and using the current government as little more than a glorified puppet for my master plans. Being evil is fun.
There is a well-known line in the Star Wars movies that applies perfectly here. “You were the Chosen One! You were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them. You were supposed to bring balance to the force, not leave it in darkness.” Of course, it’s the scene in Revenge of the Sith where Obi-Wan Kenobi faces down his former Padawan and friend Anakin Skywalker, or as he now calls himself, Darth Vader. Still, it’s apt here. While last years Battlefront left a lot of people feeling let-down I still quite enjoyed it despite its issues. I had high hopes for a sequel, and yet EA managed to fall deeper into the Dark Side, taking the beloved Star Wars name with it.

Who exactly is buying these things? I used to love a good Collector’s Edition, but these days the prices are absurd and the contents utter pants, only pants are actually practical, useful things to have. Speaking of absurdity; EA. Or more precisely EA have today announced a Collector’s […]
Eurogamer recently held a short and interesting interview with a member of DICE regarding their forthcoming Star Wars: Battlefront title.
