KOTOR2 Gets 4.5 Stars At GameSpy.com

Posted by Mike | December 09, 2004 at 09:17 PM EDT |

    If you are a fan of video games, and have an X-Box, then most certainly many of you are right not delving deep into the game, Knights Of The Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. The sequel to the award winning original, Knights Of The Old Republic, was just released December 6th and has been praised by Raymond Padilla over at GameSpy.com.
    KOTOR2 takes place 5 years after the original, and you start off as a Jedi that has lost his way from the Force. Ultimately, the decisions you make in the game will lead you either to find the light side of the Force, or become an agent of evil, and join the Dark Side. To check out the review over at GameSpy.com, click HERE.

Star Wars Miniatures Update

Posted by Mike | December 09, 2004 at 09:16 PM EDT |

       Hot on the heels of the Clone Strike Release, Wizards releases yet another Miniatures Campaign. The Hunt Within: Valance's Tale: Part 2 is todays Campaign. As some who follow EU, you may have heard of the Character Valance, an ex-Stormie, that is horribly disfigured. His disfigurement leads him to hate artificial life forms.

     Also, they have issued Jedi Counseling 54, with some Q&A for the Miniatures included in the update. To check it out, click HERE.

Star Wars Miniatures Updates

Posted by Mike | November 19, 2004 at 10:07 AM EDT |

     WOTC updates once again with a couple new articles on the Star Wars Miniatures Game.
     The first article is Jedi Counseling #53. With the Minis Game still relatively new, the questions about game play are still rolling in. Make sure to check it out to get some info on any possible questions you may have. Click HERE to take a look!
     The next article is an interview with JD Wiker, the Author for the upcoming Ultimate Missions: Rebel Storm Handbook. In this Q&A we get a little insight into what it was like to create the scenarios. One of the scenarios that interests me is the "The Temptation of Luke Skywalker". Here is an excerpt from the interview about this mission:

  "You've got Royal Guards, the Emperor, and Darth Vader stacked up against Luke Skywalker -- 122 points to 27 -- so there's got to be something to keep the Guards, not to mention the Emperor, from jumping into the fight and wiping the floor with Luke. And, to more accurately represent that final scene, I added rules to keep Vader from unloading all of his nastiest attacks on Luke. On top of that, the scenario has special rules to encourage Luke not to go for a fast "kill" on Vader. It gets really involved after a while. Choosing which Victory Condition to shoot for really affects your strategy."

Ultimate Missions Gallery

Posted by Mike | November 16, 2004 at 09:57 AM EDT |

The Ultimate Missions HandBook is a book of scenario driven play for use with the Star Wars Miniatures, and is due out this month. To check out the article, and pics, click on the thumbnail below:
