Star Wars Goodies

This post is more than 2 years old.

Well, it looks like with the upcoming release of the DVDs, a whole bunch of SW goodies are being released. Star Wars Battlegrounds is sure to rock, as is the new GBA title, Apprentice of the Force. But I saw the best thing today when a friend sent me this link to a Fossil watch with the Empire's logo on it. -drool- I've always had a weak spot for watches. I just got to find a way I can trade coding for this sweet thing!

Ray,

I got Battlefront for X-Box yesterday.

I can safely say that my productivity at home will come to a grinding halt.

Boyzoid - can you comment on the single player experience? I've heard the game isn't worth it if you don't do the network stuff (which I don't).

Ray,

I played 'single player' for a while.

It is fun, and as with most single palyer vs multiplayer mode games, the single player mode actually has some real goals to it (like total galactic domination).

I used the single player to get acclimated to the game before venturing on-line. I will continue to play single payer mode just to make it through the game (and get better so I dodn't get creamed on-line).

What I like is there is no real stategy, no over-thinking...you pick a side, and kill everyone who is not on your side. YOu can use a variety of characters from either side of the battle, as well as speeders, tanks, X-wings, Y-Wings and other vehicles or air/space craft.

I am a big Star Wars fan, and in my opinion, this is about as close to Star Wars nirvanna Lucas (and Lucas Arts) will ever get. (at least until the holo-deck is perfected, but we can leave that for another time)
