The Book of Boba Fett Season One Review: “Chapter 5 – Return of the Mandalorian”

Book-of-Boba-Fett-Return-The-Mandalorian-Review

– Spoiler Review –

It’s hard not to spoil the latest The Book of Boba Fett, as it’s all sort of there in the title, isn’t it? “Chapter 5 – Return of the Mandalorian” takes us into a different world, leaving me to argue its title means The Mandalorian not the Mandalorian, but once one makes peace with that, director Bryce Dallas Howard takes viewers on a joyous ride of an episode.

Star Wars Gaming Respawns: Jedi Fallen Order Sequel, New FPS, and Strategy Game Announced

Respawn Star Wars Games Incoming

While EA Games lost the exclusive rights to Star Wars games, that doesn’t mean they won’t still be behind some new titles, which Lucasfilm Games and EA confirmed with the news Respawn Entertainment will be leading the charge of new Star Wars games for EA. They have three games in active development, starting with a new Star Wars: Jedi entry, aka a sequel to Jedi – Fallen Order, and two unnamed games, a FPS (or first-person shooter) and a strategy game. For those curious if there’s still an opportunity for Battlefront III, it looks like that’s completely axed and Respawn will exclusively be behind new Star Wars games. It is disappointing Lucasfilm Games didn’t take a moment to address any of the Star Wars Eclipse controversary, instead choosing to announce more games and ignore it, but hopefully there’s a time and place for that soon. Regardless, head below for more details on the upcoming games. Continue reading “Star Wars Gaming Respawns: Jedi Fallen Order Sequel, New FPS, and Strategy Game Announced”

LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Releasing April 5, New Gameplay Overview Trailer

After what has felt like years of silence, not only did the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga reappear today as if it was the Death Star popping into the horizon suddenly, it came with the long-awaited release date: April 5, 2022. Alongside the announcement came the extensive, 6-minute video above exploring the giant expansion to the LEGO Star Wars formula, be it an open world structure with story missions from each of the 9 main movies, side missions as well, space battles, the big character list, skill-tree upgrades, and so much more. It really looks like it’ll be worth the several year wait, but like most big games these days unfortunately, it comes with a human cost, documented by the wonderful folks at Polygon in a detailed accounting of the crunch-heavy culture fostered by the company to make this game a reality. It sounds like there is some light on the horizon for the developers, but it doesn’t erase the fact they went through so much to make LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga and it’s something to be conscientious of when enjoying the game come April.
