Star Wars Episode VIII Title Revealed


As you can see, the subtitle of episode 8 is “The Last Jedi”. Of course it doesn’t tell us much more about the film. This isn’t the first time a Star Wars property has used the name “The last Jedi”. A 1981 issue of Marvel’s Star Wars comic used the title for a standalone story written by Mike Barr and Walt Simonson. A 2013 novel written by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff told the story of a Jedi being pursued by Vader who is carrying out Order 66. Also a 2014 fan film makes use of the title. Episode 8 is due later this year on December 15.

E3 2016 – EA: MAss Effect Andromeda, FIFA, and Battlefield 1

EA Held its press conference yesterday. They didn’t have much in the way of surprises, there was a few new looks at this year’s FIFA, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1. As for Mass Effect, we didn’t see much, but it hinted at the story being about finding a new home for humanity. Another trailer for Battlefield 1 was shown, and we saw more of its melee-combat. With black and female protagonists, biplane battles, and melee combat, Battlefield I looks to give players a whole new look at WWI. FIFA 17 was the most intriguing title of the bunch. Not only will the game be powered by DICE’s Frostbite Engine, but the game will feature a storymode, in which you play as an up and coming kicker named Alex Hunter (the guy you see above) and take him to the top of the Primer League. Titanfall 2 looks to improve on its predecessor in every way, and will even include a single-player campaign mode this time! Finally, EA gave us a look at what it’s planning with the Star Wars franchise. Along with a new Battlefront for 2017 developed in cooperation with Motive (the new company formed by Assassin’s Creed’s Jade Redmond), Visceral and Respawn are also working on new Star Wars titles that will be released throughout the next couple of years. Check out the trailers below.

Disney Infinity and Microsoft Spark Cancellation and Analysis

gamegraveyear

This past week, we learned that Disney Infinity had been cancelled due to Disney Interactive’s decision to abandon console gaming. To add insult to injury, the company is closing down its internal studio Avalanche Software, leaving close to 300 people without work (hopefully not for long). This summer will see the release of two final playsets based upon Alice:Through the Looking Glass and Finding Dory. Even Worse, Microsoft decided to shutdown its Project Spark, the Xbox One and PC set of game creation tools that allowed users to create and upload games LittleBigPlanet style. Microsoft ended active development on the game back in September, releasing all the game’s dlc for free. As of August 12, the game will no longer have online access, as players will be unable to download content or upload to the cloud. The reason given for Project Spark’s cancellation was that most of the people involved with the project had moved on to other areas within Microsoft, it wasn’t feasible to continue supporting the project. Fortunately, unlike the last time Microsoft cancelled a big name game (Fable Legends) no studio was shutdown nor was anyone fired as a result. At any rate, this isn’t a good look for Microsoft, as this is at least the third title the company has cancelled (the first two being The Phantom Dust reboot and the aforementioned Fable Legends). Maybe we’ll hear about a replacement for Project Spark next month at E3.

As far as Disney Infinity, click after the jump to learn about scrapped plans, speculation, and possible reasons for cancellation.

Star Wars: Episode VII gets release date, official cast announcement, but no expanded universe

star-wars-episode-7-cast-announce

StarWars.com had some announcements for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII film.

Regarding the cast:

“Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.”

Regarding John Williams and the release date:

“Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.”

While its great to finally have confirmation on the cast and release date, the new revelations have been met with some disappointment at the near absence of any new women.

This announcement comes on the heels of news that the Star Wars expanded universe from the novels and other media, will not be acknowledged by any of the forthcoming movies. Instead, the expanded universe will live on under the banner of Star Wars: Legends. The movie canon will only be respecting the existing 6 movies and the Clone Wars television series.

“In order to give maximum creative freedom to the filmmakers and also preserve an element of surprise and discovery for the audience, Star Wars Episodes VII-IX will not tell the same story told in the post-Return of the Jedi Expanded Universe. While the universe that readers knew is changing, it is not being discarded. Creators of new Star Wars entertainment have full access to the rich content of the Expanded Universe. For example, elements of the EU are included in [upcoming animated series] Star Wars Rebels.”
