Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review (Spoiler-Free)

Fellow spoiler-phobes can relax. This review is entirely spoiler-free with no plot or characters specifics discussed. The two images included are from the original teaser trailer and nothing is alluded to that wasn’t evident in the first two teasers. Enjoy!    Star Wars The Force Awakens is perhaps the most expensive and elaborate form of fan service ever created. This is a film built on giving people exactly what they...

How Star Wars Battlefront’s Battle of Jakku DLC (Mostly) Gets It Right

Star Wars Battlefront is a game that’s taken up quite a few of my evenings lately. Although I’ve got a full review dropping very soon, I wanted to take moment to talk about the new Battle of Jakku DLC. The DLC is free for everyone but currently only available to those who pre-ordered the game. I could be cynical and talk about the obvious fact that this promotion looks like it’s serving content that could have been on the disk, but it...

Star Wars Imperial Assault Review: Board Game + RPG + Miniatures = Fun?

Note: As has become the norm for my tabletop reviews, this is a heads up that I’m still a relative beginner to tabletop games at large! However I am a big ol’ Star Wars nerd and a fan of Fantasy Flight’s releases in the past. This review is based entirely on the core set of Imperial Assault (2014), supplied by Esdevium Games.    The Star Wars universe has heaps of potential to be used for board games, that much...

Review: Star Wars the Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire

Note: This review has been written after playing through all of the currently available chapters (I-IX) and several hours with the Alliance end-game content. It’s intended as a review of the state of Star Wars the Old Republic’s Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion at launch. As I’ll still be playing the game over the next few weeks, exploring the story on different characters and playing every bit of end-game content, I’ll pop back...

X-Wing: The Force Awakens Core Set Review – Enjoyable For Tabletop Newbies?

Disclaimer: I was recently sent the X-Wing Force Awakens Core Set to check out by the folks at Esdevium Games. After spending some time with it I came out with some thoughts. This is a review of sorts, but as with my recent HeroClix articles, I want to highlight that I’m a newbie when it comes to miniatures games, so I’m mainly speaking to fellow-newbies or fellow Star Wars fanatics. Either way, enjoy!   X-Wing, I’m...

How The Star Wars Battlefront Beta Made Me Feel Like A Kid Again

My female TIE Fighter pilot quips about the superiority of Imperial training as a Rebel ship is incinerated in flames. I bring the ship around to face the ongoing ground battle beneath me, seeing explosions balloon on the ground as two huge AT-ATs lumber on through the snow. At this point I just grin to myself, this is exactly what I was hoping for. Over my entire life in one way or another I’ve imagined being the pilot of an...
