From the blocky pixels of Star Wars on the Atari 2600, to the large-scale combat of Star Wars: Battlefront 2, video games have continually evolved in order to bring players closer to the action. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire is a VR experience that raises the bar for immersion to an all-time high.
Though I don’t remember enjoying this back in the day, I give Mario Kart: Double Dash a second chance! Thank you everyone that dropped by the stream and the lively discussion we had throughout! We also take a look at the Mario Kart: Double Dash bonus disc, which includes demos for Mario Party 5, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron III, F-Zero GX, and more!
Merry belated Christmas everyone! Hope the holiday season has been good to you. It was a hectic one for Steff and I, as we drove up and down Ontario in order to participate in the holiday festivities with all four sides of our families. During that time, gifts were exchanged, and I hope I brought smiles to those on my list in the same way that they made me smile with everything given to me. Thank you all!
Not that I don’t like them, but I’ll leave the non-nerdy stuff aside for this post. Let’s talk about all the nerdy stuff I got!
Star Wars: Imperial Assault is a game designed to capture the essence of ground-based combat in the Star Wars universe. Heroes with blasters and lightsabers take on the Imperial army, which features Stormtroopers, Probe Droids and even AT-STs. Heck, even the likes of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader make cameo appearances here. Is this the Star Wars board game you’re looking for?
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been gradually getting acclimated to Star Wars: Imperial Assault. In my first post, I covered my time with the tutorial. Next, I wrote about my experience playing Skirmish matches. Today, I’ll cover the little bit I’ve experienced with the Campaign. For players curious about diving deep into the lore and ground-based combat of Star Wars, maybe these impressions will sway you on a purchase of this game.
In a previous post, I covered the tutorial for Star Wars: Imperial Assault. To summarize, I thought that the core aspects of the game’s mechanics, as portrayed in the tutorial, already made for a thrilling tactical combat experience. Now it’s time to ratchet up the complexity with the Skirmish mode, which is one of the two main ways to play.
Steff and I were just two of the over 127,000 people converged at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre this year for Fan Expo Canada 2015. This year was our fifth consecutive year going and it was a good show. Definitely not my favourite Fan Expo, but one that was certainly worthwhile that kept me entertained throughout. Lots of stories and pictures to share with you, so let’s just get into it!
