I must be on a Star Wars kick as of late, and didn’t even realize it. This is my second Star Wars game review in the last week. I’m fine with that, as the Star Wars universe lends itself to many different gaming types, and the latest is Star Wars: Tiny Death Star.

Based on the Tiny Tower game from NimbleBit in which the player is tasked with building and maintaining a Tower, in Tiny Death Star, the goal is to build and expand the Death Star, one floor at a time, attracting virtual people (Galactic Bitizens) to move in and work in the Death Star. I don’t like to think about the fate of all my little Bitizens after the first Star Wars movie! Maybe they were all evicted before the end came for the Death Star? One can only hope!

First, a confession. I love LEGO games of this sort. I have purchased every single LEGO movie franchise game on the PS3, as well as all the previous ports to iOS. The fun nature of these games is appealing to almost every age group, and while violence is part of the game, it’s done in a harmless way. Break something, it turns into LEGO pieces.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is the first LEGO game of this nature, sort of. The original game was simply LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game, released back in 2005 for the XBOX and PS2. Developed by TT Games, it was a huge hit, winning many awards. Long time Star War fans were disappointed that the original game only focused on the newer (prequel) movies, and not the adventures of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and the last three (original) movies. Still, it was a fun, original game that would set the standard for a decade’s worth of LEGO games that would make millions of dollars.

The future, what do you mean? How can we be in the future?


For decades many of us have been in awe of the possibility of the future. Not that long ago the thought of carrying a single panel computer capable of presenting music, film, books, and games was nothing more than science fiction.

I live by the belief that if man can envisage it, people can create it.

Of course, there is the possibility of going too far, as is famously shown in Planet Of The Apes, circa 1968.

For now we can sit back and relax with a small and hopefully harmless portion of technology that seemingly has the effect of enhancing our lives.

Lego Star Wars – The Complete Saga for Mac
Review

Lego Star Wars – The Complete Saga
Price: $40

I have a confession to make: when I first picked up a Star Wars lego game, it for the XBox 360, and I didn’t know anything about it. It seemed, honestly, overtly complex. I gave up on the game only after an hour or so of trying to play. It should have been easier and, I thought, more intuitive. So I quickly went back to playing GTA when the kids would go to bed.

Waiting for Star Wars 3?

On April 25, 2005, in Original Blog, by Russ Walkowich

Tired of watching Star Wars 1 & 2 and anxiously awaiting SW 3? Need a fix of SW? Try “STAR WARS REVELATIONS”

Check out http://www.panicstruckpro.com/revelations/revelations_movie.html

Three years in the making by a totally unknown group of writers, actors and extras.. FANS to be precise, and $20,000 on maxed out credit cards. While it’s not George Lucas’s final cut running 2 hours of so, this 250 MB download of approximately 20 minutes worth of film, has it’s good points. Available as a Bit Torrent or http download, it’s enjoyable to see someone take a premise, work it out, put it all together and place it online for others to download and enjoy.

TIE Fighter
Review

TIE Fighter Picture

Have you ever wanted to be evil? Have you ever wondered what would have happened if Darth Vader had defeated the Rebel Alliance? Well, now’s your chance to join The Dark Side! LucasArts’ “TIE Fighter Collectors CD-ROM” is your opportunity to suppress the puny Rebel Alliance… and hey, it’s kinda fun!

The story of TIE Fighter picks up after the Death Star disaster. Vader is teed-off, and he wants revenge for the destruction of his great weapon. Yes, TIE Fighter is not just shooting and explosions (although that’s great), but is also a great story. Even better, the story is accompanied by some great cut scenes, instruction and dialogue, audio, and more. In TIE Fighter, you’re a trainee pilot who gets to fly seven of the Empire’s best fighters. You fly 104 thrilling, fast-paced missions. Do your duty, and you’ll be favorably rewarded. Foul up, though, and you’ll get some harsh discipline from your supervisors.
