Update: I actually had an idea for another game I forgot to put in the original post that I thought I would include now
Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog. Last post I talked about some Star Wars comics I would like to see and that got me thinking of another media I would like to see more star wars in: video games. There have been many great Star Wars video games(and some clunkers), but here are a few ideas for Star Wars games I would like to see, in no particular order.
A New X-wing Game: I’ve only really played Jedi Starfighter , but the Star Wars X-wing games were a classic Star Wars series that I would like to see resurrected. I think a game focused on Black Squadron as introduced in the Poe Dameron comic would make for a good storyline set before the Force Awakens
A Star Wars Fighting Game: I know this has already been done poorly with Masters of Teras Kasi, but I think a Star Wars fighting game could work if done correctly. The Star Wars Characters were a nice addition to the Soul Calibur games, but I want to seem the same kind of concept with solely Star Wars Characters.
A Darth Vader Game: The Darth Vader mission was probably my favorite part of The Force Unleashed so it would be fun to have that as a full game
A Darth Maul Game: Darth Maul’s stock is rising thanks to his appearances in Clone Wars and Rebels and he has always been my favorite part of the prequels so I think it would be fun to play as him. Maybe even combine the Darth Vader game with this with a storyline that brings them together and some decent co-op.
A Boba Fett Game: Another Star Wars villain I would like to take the role of. Jango Fett got his own game with Bounty Hunter, but I think it’s time the younger Fett had his own game.
A Han Solo Game: With the Han Solo movie about two years away I think now would be a good time to start developing a solo Han Solo game(see what I did there). It would obviously be a tie-in to the movie, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. If done right, with an original story, and maybe some missions were you either play as Chewbacca and Lando or with them(perhaps co-op?) I think a first-person shooter with the potential to team-up with Chewie or Lando for Co-op has some potential
A Star Wars: Demolition sequel: For those of you who haven’t played it Star Wars Demolition it’s kind of like Star Wars meets Twisted Metal with different vehicles from Star Wars doing combat in illegal demolition derby-type fights. I realize not everyone liked the original game, which is dated now, but I think it would be a fun game to resurrect if only for the chance to include the Millennium Falcon on the roster of playable vehicles.
A Sequel to Jedi Power Battles: Another sequel to a somewhat obscure Star Wars Game. The original Jedi Power battles allowed you to play as Jedi: Mace Windu,Qui-jon Jinn, Adi Galia, Plo Koon, and Obi-wan Kenobi in a storyline that followed the events of Episode I. I would like to see a sequel with an original story, mostly likely set during the clone wars, and a more robust cast, maybe including Kit Fisto, Aayla Secura, Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, and perhaps even Yoda.
Star Wars: Galactic Warriors: The Dynasty Warriors formula has already been used for other franchises like Zelda(Hyrule Warriors) and One Piece(One Piece: Pirate Warriors) and I think Star Wars would be a great fit with you being able to take control of Jedi Knights during the clone wars
Anyways those are some of my ideas for Star Wars games. What games would you like to see?
Weekly Comic Pull List:
What I picked up last week:
Star Wars:Darth Maul #1: I didn’t really mean to pick this one up, but they added it to my pull at the comic story because I’ve been getting most of the Star Wars book. I wasn’t too impressed with it. It kind of seemed like a retread of the Star Wars novel Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter.
Star Wars #28: It was a surprise to see a new issue of Star Wars so soon after the last one, but I did enjoy this issue so it was a good surprise
What I will be picking up:
All-star Batman #7: This is probably my favorite current Batman series. I loved Scott Snyder’s most recent run on the main Batman series so it’s nice to see him continue with the character even though he’s no longer writing the main series.
Detective Comics #950: It’s a double dose of Batman this week with a extra-sized 950th issue of Detective Comics. Good thing I’m such a big fan of Batman
The moonlight glistens
on his blood-stained sword.
War and death consume him.
A guttural war cry
reverberates from his throat.
Through the corpse-strewn field,
Overtaken by blood lust and battle
He slashes through his enemies,
their blood covering the charred grass.
An arrow whistles towards him.
He stands in its path, unmoving.
His armor will protect him.
The arrow circumvents his armor
and pierces his heart.
A grunt of pain
He stumbles to the ground.
Tonight he will fight on
the fiery battlefield
